You can't blame Lacey...she wasn't the one who put the money up. In our family, we have been fortunate as well, and our parents brought us up never to take that for granted. We believe the blame is on her parents...they could have raised their daughter with more appreciative values as well as also used the money for this extravagant birthday party to try to save Martin Designs....instead employees are out of work in a town that is hurting for jobs. We feel the money spent for this party could have been used in a way to save jobs...and would set an example to his daughter of how the generosity of being wealthy could be used to help those less fortunate. We're not saying that people shouldn't enjoy or deserve success. These days, people in our country frown upon success, there is nothing wrong with being successful. When people supporting their families find out on short notice that they have lost their jobs, they're going to feel resentful when they see or find out about Marty's daughters sixteenth birthday party. Although we feel that every daughters sweet sixteen is very special and that they could have fulfilled a most memorable party by cutting out a majority of the things they did. That money could have been used to keep the business open at least short term and you never know what could have happened. In closing we live in a capitalist world and we truly believe in it. But when you send people to the unemployeement line, the people that are on that line or people that know people on that line see that episode on MTV or read it in the paper are going to be very judgmental. We hope that all the feedback received from this will hopefully persuade people that it is better to be a hero than flaunting what they have on national television.

personally i don't think anyone has the right to tell the myers family how to spend or not spend their money. i was very disturbed by the letter to the editor in the paper saying they should give the money to a charity. you have no idea what those people do for charities. i don't either but i know that their family is full of good and hard working honest people and they don't deserve all this criticism. lacy is also a wonderful person. if you watch other episodes of the show you will see how ungrateful some of those people can be. lacy never once got into fights with her parents and she never threw a fit. she is the nicest girl that has ever been on this show. and i think that if her parents want to do this for her then let them do it. if she wants to be in the entertainment business then this can only benefit her as far as exposure goes. so people really need to stop butting in to there lives telling them how to spend their money and were to send their kids to school. lacy wanted to have a good time and now everyone is probably just making her feel horrible.

Who cares about her sweet sixteen they made too big of a deal from it. An what parents let their daughter dress the way she did to ridew the elephant????? Evertone has birthday parties lets lokk at things that are a little more important rather than following the story of a spoiled preppy brat. This is so frustrating I think Im glad she had fun but its not a big freakin deal we all celebrate birthdays!!! Just because shes rich dont mean shes anything special around here!

Well I visited Ashland once, and had the awful experience of going into a bathroom (at one of the nicer restraunts in town mind you) right after she had just got done going #2 and I can tell you first hand...her shit stinks...like two week old roast beef left in the heat.

If you all weren't busy spending all your energy on jealousy, maybe you would put that same effort into making your own small fortune. I know the Myers family and have for many years. Mr and Mrs Myers are great people and very down to earth. My family does not have money and we have been great friends with them for many years. They are very smart with their money and help this community in more ways then you all would ever know. And as for Lacey being spoiled, not so MTV had to actually tell her she needed to ask for more things to make the show more interesting. When my husband and I make our small fortune, I will be sure to buy my kids a good dependable automobile that I don't have to worry about them traveling in. All anybody wants is to give their children the best in life better than we had as children and when you do, everyone comes out of the woodwork and has a comment, as to how you are raising your children. Now if the Myers gave their children nothing and made their kids work at mcdonalds everyone would call them greedy parents that don't care out their kids. So in closing keep your 2 cents to your selves and go get another job with all this free time, make your own money and quit complaining about what others do with theirs.

I agree with the whole post of GetaLife!
She was the most grateful and appreciative girl I've ever seen on this show. Did you see her crying in the car? I dont think I've ever seen a sweet 16 girl cry...only if they were whining that they didnt get the car they asked for.
She is beautiful and I'm sure she deserved every bit of what she got for her birthday.
I absolutely love her hair too!

Let her know she is beautiful and I want her hair! Ask her how her stylist cuts it. is it just layered? razored? It's gorgeous!

Well, if they were "such great people" as some posters say they wouldn't have hired circus animals to perform at their daughters birthday party. Animals don't belong in circus's and certainly not at a self centered 16 year olds party. Research Circus animals to see what I mean, they suffer horribly. All circus's should be shut down and the animals sent to sanctuaries.

The Myers are more screwed up than most. They don't know how to run their businesses (Martin Designs and don't forget Pet Brands) and Mrs. Martin lets her husband cheat on her. I heard they were getting divorced. She should take Mr. Martin for all he has left.

Who are you to run your chops about anyone? I'm sure you're an idiot in many aspects of your life as well.

No wonder the rest of the world hates us so much. Most of the other people of the world are struggling with every penny they spend. These spoiled kids and the parents flaunt their money in front of everyone's face. People that watch this garbage think all Americans live like this. It's really the parent's fault for raising their little princesses like this.
