They were the most precocious kids and talented teens on the planet. They came into our homes each week, made magic on the silver screen with their adult co-stars, and had us singing along with their hits. So, what happened to these kids when the phone
stopped ringing? E! Entertainment Television delves into the fascinating world of Child Stars in a new half-hour series that catches up with once-famous kids for whom life outside the spotlight has become their greatest challenge. Each episode of Child Star Confidential will shine the spotlight once again on a group of former stars whose fame earned the adoration of fans throughout the world All grown up now, these young adults tell - in their own words - what life is like when agents won't return your calls, the money runs out and you're facing life on your own for the first time. They are survivors willing to share their stories of struggle, insecurity and triumph over adversity.
New episodes include:

The Kids' Table
Adorable, precocious and oh-so cute, these kids could get away with anything by simply flashing a smile and delivering a quick one-liner. But when the cameras stopped rolling, just how many of these pint-sized stars were able to survive their own punch-lines? We'll find out who got involved in an ugly legal battle with his parents over $? Which child star found himself out-ed by the press? Who received death threats from wacked-out fans? Plus, which one of these stars bottomed out on Crystal Meth? CSC takes a look at these young TV stars and reveals how they

Now CSC exposes what was happening in their real lives behind the catchphrases, costumes and Clearasil. We'll find out which geeks turned chic. Which sidekick's storyline mirrored his own horrifying situation? And who followed her
famous father's example to a small degree? PLUS which star walked away from one million dollars to play a child in a movie, choosing instead to live out his own real childhood?
