I was asked from some folks...(not producers...but the people who find actors & whatnot) if my daughter would go to a casting call they are having. They told me she has exactly what they are looking for, for this new TV show they want to get going.

It is for a TV series about Jr. Roller derby...maybe kind of a reality TV show. They need a group of 20 girls...and there aren't many girls in the area. They are filming in our state/city.

Yes, my daughter is in Jr. roller derby & she kicks butt at it.

Some of my friends say no, they would not. They think it would interfere with school. One of them said they wouldn't want it "getting to their child's head"...i guess she means she doesn't want her to become a spoiled child-TV star or something.

I am considering it, because what if it could change her life for the better? Her 2nd grade teacher always told me that she feels she will see my DD on TV one day, and a friend of mine who works for Cartoon Network has been telling me for years to get her involved in TV and/or modeling. Should i take this opportunity? I don't think it would hurt to go to the casting call...we can always change our mind if we decide not to do it.

A lot of my friends are telling me not to...

I'm starting to wonder if they are jealous or something. I thought i would get more support from my peers....this is why i am asking. Some people are quite negative about it...

I would if it is something my daughter wanted to do, I think you are probably right about the jealousy
