Well-balanced parents and their gifted kids.

Josh shows his good sense and gives some love to Showbiz Moms & Dads. (Or maybe he's just showing more love for I don't know.)

Either way, while we're on the subject of the greatest reality program on the air, allow me to remind you of the show's true breakout star, the awesomely untalented Shane Klingensmith. His Mom gave an interview with Bravo online that is truly creepy.

Here's the best part:

When did it first occur to you that Shane might have a future in show business?

DEBBIE KLINGENSMITH: Shane always liked being on stage. I didn't pay a lot of attention to Shane and that kind of stuff mainly because I had a daughter dying of cancer. When Robin died, Shane was two and a half years old. I kind of had to get my life back together. It was very devastating to lose my daughter. She had a fabulous voice; she was an awesome entertainer. You never really think you're going to get two in the family.
Shane started showing signs of liking to do this around the age of three. I held off until he was seven. He had done modeling and stuff like that — some modeling competitions and some shoots — and he finally put his foot down and said, "dagnabit, I can sing and I want to entertain!" That's when I realized that Shane was not going to take "no" for an answer. You have to have a child that wants to do it.
