Super Sweet Sixteen

An MTV crew is in town filming Central High Junior Alyson Walker, daughter of Bill Walker, the state's director of workforce education, for "My Super Sweet 16." The reality show follows soon to be 16-year-olds as they plan and attend their ultra lavish sweet-16 parties.

How lavish? Alyson and her mom Sharon and one of Alyson's friends spent $167,000 at Sissy's Log Cabin in Pine Bluff earlier this week. The group spent an hour and a half oohing and aahing over the jeweler's collection before deciding on a 50K double-stranded diamond necklace, a 20K in-line diamond bracelet and a pair of 3K cushion-cut studs.

Last year, you might remember, it was revealed that Bill Walker, who is a recent mayoral candidate and former state senator, was the John Doe plaintiff in a lawsuit filed against the Little Rock School Board, Superintendent Roy Brooks and Central High School Principal Nancy Rousseau alleging that his soon-to-be sweet 16-year-old daughter's rights were violated when she was removed from a junior varsity cheerleading team.

We hear through the grapevine, that the party will be next Saturday at the Clear Channel Metroplex. No word on whether they'll be a big name musical guest as is typical for the show.

The episode will air in August on MTV.

  • Janet Jackson at Verizon Arena: A Review

    Her dance abilities had clearly diminished, as they naturally would over two decades. I mean, she's 50. And has a newborn. I get it, but it's like they're grasping at recreating 20 year-old Janet instead of focusing on what makes 50 year-old Janet amazing, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t terribly disappointed.
