Getting in the Kardashian business has worked for rapper Kanye West -- his girl Kim inspires lyrics and makes music video cameos in hoodies! Come Sunday, boy band heartthrob Kevin Jonas will be following suit in other ways: launching his own E! reality show "Married to Jonas," which follows the 24-year-old musician and his wife Danielle -- with the almighty reality dynasty serving as its lead-in. The half-hour reality series chronicles the couple, who married in 2009, as they familiarize themselves to each other's families and decide whether to start one of their own. (Note: Danielle's father, nicknamed "Bucky," seems destined for his own spinoff.)

For my daughter, Sophie, it was like finding the goose that laid the golden egg. "Today was a Fairytale," Taylor Swift was singing from the stage at Staples Center, and Sophie, age 11, was singing every word along with her, waving a colored light stick back and forth above her head.
