Bob Morris, vacationing with his brother and 8-year-old nephew Ian in sometime celebrity hangout in the Turks and Caicos, Parrot Cay, turns young Ian into a celeb-baiting mercenary after spotting a former supermodel and her son. "I told Ian...that I would give him a dollar to make friends with the famous woman's son." I'm all for using people to get to celebritiesespecially small unwitting children (suckers!) There was, however, a very strange quote in the article: "'Celebrities can cause anxiety among parents,' said Meg Wolitzer, whose new novel, The Wife explores the negative effect of proximity to the famous. 'And the seductiveness of fame can make some adults act even worse than children.'" No idea what she's talking about.
