Sweet 16 update

Posted By on Thu, May 17, 2007 at 5:12 PM

An item on our blogs last Friday, repeated in this week's print edition of the Times, recounted the presence of an MTV crew in Little Rock to film a Sweet 16 party for Alyson Walker, daughter of Bill Walker, the state workforce education director and former state senator. It reported filming at Sissy's Log Cabin of what we had been told by the store was the purchase of $167,000 in jewelry for the event.

Walker just called. He said the report on the jewelry purchase was incorrect. He said the jewelry had been loaned for use on the show, not sold to the family. "Even if I could afford that kind of purchase, I wouldn't have spent it. My values are different than that." He said all the jewelry listed was now "back in their possession."

The party was held last Saturday at the Clear Channel Metroplex. A local DJ provided the music, Walker said. Sometimes big-name entertainers appear for segments of the reality show on Sweet 16 parties. The episode featuring the Walker party will air later this year.
