Kardashian Sisters, Demi Lovato Help Battle Bullying on 'Extreme Makeover' (VIDEO)

Kardashian sisters, 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition'Bullying is a serious problem that can lead to all sorts of emotional and psychological issues for the victims, even later into their lives. For the Walker family, it cost them their son after he committed suicide at the tender age of 11. On 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (Fri., 8PM ET on ABC), the family was giving a new home they could hopefully feel at peace in, as well as some help with their anti-bullying initiative.

First, the Kardashian sisters surprised eldest daughter Dominique on a shopping trip, where Khloe talked about her own experiences with bullying. She was often compared negatively to sisters Kourtney and Kim, and fans of the show know that she actually took a DNA test years later to see if she was truly related to them. Insecurities from bullying can linger for years.

At a benefit they threw for the Walker family cause, they invited Demi Lovato, who recently came out of a treatment center for the issues bullying pushed her into. So it was especially poignant when she performed 'Skyscraper' for the attended fans, and people of all ages. Maybe, through the tireless work of the Walkers, and celebrities who've been there, we can at least make a noticeable difference in bullying and our responses to it.

Good God, more racist remarks? Don't you people have anything better to do? Someone's ethnicity has nothing to do with their talent level. Man, you look ignorant... I just pray you didn't procreate. As far as the Kardashians, or Demi Lovato, they all have their fan bases, who love them. Live and let live.

Lovato is just another " Disney created" child star like Selena Gomez to appeal to the mexican children qand tap into that market. Now that they have grown up and disney dumped them they can't find work because they never had any true talents, they were nothing but Disney creations. Thats why Selena Gomez is using Justin Bieber for his fame and fortune.

Demi wasn't dumped. She chose to leave and she's successful on her own. And she sounds AMAZING live. Get over yourself.

Dick Bunney broke Dan Butts' nose on the Senior Lawn at Westchester High School , in Los Angeles, in the spring of 1969. Mr. Butts stopped pushing people around - all people, not just Dick Bunney. I was there, I saw it along with about 200 other kids. The only way to stop a bully is to punish him or her. Educators and school administrators do not allow punishment. Ergo, they can't stop bullying. End of discussion. They don't want to stop it because it might hurt the psyche of the bully. The physical and emotional health of the weaker kids is meaningless to them. They are cowards. Look at any epoch of history. The weak inherit the broken nose unless the strong and moral take care of the bully. Watch the movie, Shane - with Allen Ladd. It's a western. It's true life.
