Linda Thompson: ‘Blended Families Have Lots Of Lumps’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Families with children from a previous marriage are called “blended” but songwriter Linda Thompson prefers another term: “curdled.”

In her words, “I think blended families are more curdled than blended because there’s always a lot of lumps.”

Thompson knows from experience: she has two sons with previous hubby Bruce Jenner and is married to composer David Foster, who has five daughters from three mothers.

Couch potatoes will see what she means when her family is featured in a new series, The Princes Of Malibu, which premieres July 10 on Fox.

But don’t call it a reality show. Thompson says it’s an “unscripted sitcom” where a small amount of truth – such as her hubby’s obsession with having his own parking spot in the driveway – gets exaggerated for comic effect.
