NEW E! SPECIAL REVEALS WHAT ITS LIKE BEING RAISED AS A CHILD OF A CELEBRITY THROUGH EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEWS AND RARE FAMILY PHOTOS WHEN "GROWING UP HOLLYWOOD" PREMIERES FEBRUARY 7TH AT 8PM ET/PT

"I want her to stay focused and committed to the idea of being a decent human being and not go off the deep end, because Hollywood has a way of taking young kids and turning them into monsters." - LL Cool J on daughter Samaria Smith

Los Angeles, January 30, 2012 - Growing up with larger-than-life allowances, gigantic houses, and celebrity parents is a dream for most, but in the all-new one-hour special, "Growing Up Hollywood," E! gives viewers a look into the real lives of some of Hollywood's most fascinating off-spring. Sitting down for exclusive interviews are the children of LL Cool J, Kathie Lee Gifford, Eddie Murphy, Diana Ross, Vanessa Williams, Corbin Bernsen, and The Go-Go's Belinda Carlisle, who explain how their lives and careers have been impacted by their famous parents. Straight from the source, our special reveals that being born into the spotlight comes with just as many challenges as it does advantages as children of celebrities attempt to follow in their parents' footsteps as actors/models/artists/entrepreneurs. Chudney Ross, daughter of legendary singer Diana Ross explains, "I think that people think that celebrities' daughters, or Diana Ross' daughter, have things handed to them on a silver platter... that things are very easy." From babies to the big time, some stars' children have successfully risen as celebrities in their own right, landing gigs without the help of mom and dad. In addition, E! cameras catch exclusive intimate moments between the children and their parents as they take a break from the red carpets and paparazzi and enjoy one-on-one time with each other. Journey into the personal lives of celebrities' children and find out what its like, "Growing Up Hollywood," when the all-new special premieres February 7th at 8PM ET/PT on E!

Select exclusive quotes from "Growing Up Hollywood" include:

"I just think it's so funny when, forty, fifty year-old women come up to me and they're like, 'I've grown up with you! Like, I feel like you're my daughter."" - Cassidy Gifford, daughter of Frank and Kathie Lee Gifford

"My mom, she's absolutely absurd in any way you could ever imagine. But, she is also my best friend. She's my rock." - Cassidy Gifford, daughter of Frank and Kathie Lee Gifford

"She got the double whammy of a freak for a mother, like me, and an incredible, iconic, hall of fame father." - Kathie Lee Gifford on daughter Cassidy

"Being Diana Ross' daughter, doesn't help you at City Hall or the health department." - Chudney Ross, daughter of Diana Ross

"I wasn't really that excited about having a child. And it happened at, at age 31, out of the blue. I didn't really want my child to grow up around, in Los Angeles." - Belinda Carlisle on son Duke Mason

"I think it has really its strength and its weaknesses, being the daughter of a famous mom. Traveling all over the world, going to different concerts and whatnot. But probably what I am most uncomfortable with is being in the spotlight so much." - Melanie Hervey, daughter of Vanessa Williams
