Win an iPod!


Time to cash in on that dysfunctional childhood with Season Pass’ latest giveaway contest.

Ipod1As a tie-in to its series “Relative Madness,” SoapNET is giving one lucky
Season Pass reader an iPod. Eight runners up will receive either a shirt or a mug.

“Relative Madness” is a limited series of six original specials airing Thursdays at 11 p.m. that takes an irreverent look at families and relationships, blending celebrities with fictional TV characters. Each show will count down the 25 best over-the-top moments in a given category with commentary from various personalities including Joy Behar (“The View”), Cameron Mathison (“All My Children”), Andrea Bowen (“Desperate Housewives”) and Willie Garson (“Sex and the City”).

“Relative Madness” bowed May 8, just before Mother’s Day, with “Mama Drama” (featuring Dina Lohan and Britney Spears) and concludes the week of Father’s Day with “Father Knows Less.”

CarriebigThe other episodes in the series are “It’s a Sibling Thing,” “A Brawl in the Family,” “Twisted Family Trees” and this week’s “Crazy… In Love,” featuring troubled relationships ranging from Lisa Marie Presley and Michael Jackson to “Sex and the City’s” Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big.

To win the iPod, leave a comment and tell us your most dysfunctional moment. Maybe it was something “helpful” your mom said to you that you’ve never forgotten, an epic fight with a sibling or a dramatic break-up story. The best stories (30 words or less please) will be entered into a drawing for the iPod. If you’ve led a perfect life, make something up!

Contest will close on June 12, when the last episode of the series airs. Winners will be notified June 16.

Also let us know which runner up prize you prefer. And good luck!

    My dad caught me sleeping with my girlfriend when I was 15. His comment the next day: “It’s none of my business but women like it harder…”Scared for life…;)

  2. Qua says:

    Getting kicked out the house, by you mom multiple times, due to constant arguing and learning how to fend for yourself while going for a college education.

  3. Eddie says:

    I was 8 and I had my first real party. I had all my friends over-about 7 children in my age.
    My aunt was suposed to watch us but somehow she was distracted. Bored out of our minds we wanted to go find my dad to ask him whether we can play some ball in the park.
    I opened my parents door and there they were having sex. ALL the children saw it and it was the most schocking moment in my life.
    I didn’t even know what sex was at that time and my parents and friends explanations afterwards certainly didn’t help.
    So truely: “Mom, you have made my therapist a wealthy, wealthy man”;)

  4. Bridgette Kolesar-Williams says:

    My father died when I was 14, so I had to grow-up fast. Every time I asked my mom for advice she would say, I’m not going to tell you what to do, your going to have to learn for yourself. Then when I did something wrong, She would always say: Didn’t I teach you better han that! I found it quite ironic!

  5. Erik says:

    One year, my mom decided we should give up going to church for lent.
    We never went back.

  6. Tony Mendyk says:

    I was a smart ass growing up and one time my mother slapped me across my face and her hand left an outline of her fingers on my cheek. I said, “I can’t go to school like this.” My mother’s reply was, “Tell them your cat scratched you.” Funny thing was …. we didn’t have a cat.

  7. Stacy Witkowski says:

    My mother told me to never disagree with my dad even if I knew he was wrong, just agree and in my head know I was right.

  8. Allison Solow says:

    When I asked my step-father who was legally blind and collecting government assistance why he was driving the family car — and not letting me behind the wheel — he told me, “Do as I say, not as I do.”

  9. Bunny says:

    Once while bored, I destroyed my sister’s harlequin mask collection by giving them eyeballs made of ping-pong balls and poster paint.
    Dad’s response to crying sister: “Let me explain to you why this is funny…”
