Once upon a time, there lived a beautiful Princess. One day she met a handsome Movie Star. The two fell in love, married and set off to create their very own Fairytale. We get a glimpse into their life with their blended brood of five children. First we have Oxenberg's daughter princess-in-training India; then Van Dien's children from his first marriage, Cappy and Gracie; and the couple's two children together, Maya "the little Napoleon" and baby Celeste. The series captures some scenes familiar to every family, such as getting the kids to bed on time or enforcing discipline. Other scenes are not-so-ordinary because, even in a fairytale, trouble brews and thorny issues erupt. Viewers will see long-simmering resentments and lighthearted moments. "When the crown comes off and the limos roll away, it's just us--diapers and all," said Van Dien. "At home we're a very open and uninhibited family.

Really cute series! Maya's got my heart, with Nemo a close second. I just saw the "camping trip" show - no, it's not really camping with an RV in the parking lot.

Just the clean air and water is worth a try - we love Pinecrest in Northern California, but I'm sure you've lots and lots of woodsy, pine-filled areas to travel to - and nothing tastes as good as food cooked out of doors - especially bacon. Keep those episodes coming! Well, I have to write more. Very moving episode with Cappy's bi-polar disorder. India's just beautiful, all the kids are lovely. I'd like to know how many episodes have been filmed as I've missed some (comes on at 11:00 p.m. Monday night, a little late for me, but I stay up for it), and would like to "make up" the missed ones on reruns. I tried, by the way, to e-mail Ken re the website so I could pass on the compliments, but DAEMON told me nothing went thru.
