Growing Up Twisted: Rock and Roll Ain't Dead

This week’s Growing Up Twisted begins with Cody telling a story of a chef that puts an eel up his drunk friends ass. At this point there really needs to be one show dedicated to Cody’s sexuality. Actually, one episode may not be enough, we are talking miniseries.

Dee receives an offer to do a show in Atlantic City so he uses this opportunity to take the family on a road trip to A.C. After a stop at the recording studio where Jesse is playing his new song, “Rock and Roll Aint Dead”, Dee decides he wants to sing the song with his son at his upcoming show. Meanwhile, back at the house Lita Ford (who is apparently opening for Dee) is calling to invite Cheyenne to sing her song “Cherry Bomb” live at the show. Of course Cheyenne, Dee’s little drama queen, has a sore throat and is unsure she will be able to perform the song.

The family arrives in A.C., immediately Cody and Shane are bored. So what do they do? Roll around together on their hotel room bed of course, like any normal brothers. One word: miniseries. Shane proclaims that Atlantic City is only fun when you’re drunk. I believe this applies to just about any city.

Next we follow Suzette and the boys as she has a glass of wine and fun playing roulette. This leads to the boys showing again how overprotective they are of their mother saying she shouldn’t have fun because it makes her look like a bimbo. Again, the boys are more concerned others are looking at their Mom than their own lives.

The show goes on and Cheyenne (drama and all) sings Lita’s song. Dee is up next, although the only part of his set we see is when he introduces his son to sing his song with him. Let me see if I got the lyrics right, it goes something like this: Rock and roll aint dead, yeah, rock and roll aint dead, oh yeah, rock and roll aint dead, (scream), rock and roll aint dead. Second verse same as the first…

I didn't understand this article at all... what the hell is it even attempting to describe? It sounds like acid-induced babble...

^^^Clearly this is about Dee's reality series "Growing Up Twisted". Why don't you crawl out from under that rock and have a look around before you criticise someone based on your own ignorance.
