House of Carter

Another family is in the news – the Carters.  Not Jimmy and Rosalynn.  Our first story is about Aaron CarterLance Bass is joining forces with Aaron’s twin sister Angel in Songs for Tomorrow at Bass’ West Hollywood nightclub, Heart (formerly known as Rage), on January 18th.  All of the proceeds will go to On Our Sleeves, a charity focused on the mental health of young people.

And that leads to a story about Aaron’s brother.  Nick and his boys filmed A Very Backstreet Holiday, a holiday special which was slated to air on ABC on December 14th.  The network quietly dropped the show from its schedule while rape allegations continue to swirl around Nick.  The incident in question happened in 2001 after a concert in Tacoma – and I think it goes without saying that nothing good happens after a concert in Tacoma.  Allegedly, Nick invited Shannon “Shay” Ruth (who was 17 at the time) onto the band’s tour bus, gave her an alcoholic beverage he called “VIP Juice”, and sexually assaulted her.  While it’s easy to scoff at an allegation coming to light two decades later, three other anonymous women reported similar experiences with Carter between 2003-2006.
