The mothers on "Toddlers & Tiaras" are notorious for making questionable judgment calls when it comes to their children. Bare midriffs, heavy makeup, risque dance moves, spray tans, Red Bull. and flippers all can be considered "too mature" for kids. Wendy Dickey is the latest pageant mom with her head on the guillotine for dressing her 3-year-old daughter Paisley up as Julia Robert's character from "Pretty Woman." Her costume wasn't any worse that some of the others I've seen on the show in the past-I seem to recall a girl dressed as Daisy Duke-it's the implication of the costume that is unnerving. A tiny prostitute. Not the look most people want to associate with a 3-year-old. Wendy is standing by her costume choice. "I'm raising my child just as well as any mother does ... I take my kid to church every week ... at least I'm not forcing them into sports and getting my child injured like some parents ... People need to look at their own family and what they're doing. I don't know why people are focusing so much on pageant moms when there's much more harmful things people are letting their children do!" she said.
Quite an airtight argument she has there. Sports are more dangerous than pageants! Her daughter's moral fiber will be kept intact as long as she continues to take her to church every week! But seriously. Everything about child pageants is technically in poor taste. This just seems like more of the same. I don't have the energy to be outraged. I'm desensitized to the horrors of the glitz pageant world after watching the last few seasons. I don't judge anymore. I just sit back, enjoy the flippers, and hope that these children don't have to spend too many years in therapy. "Toddlers & Tiaras" has made one thing perfectly clear: people are insane when it comes to their children. [TMZ]This post was originally posted on The Frisky. More from The Frisky:
