Vanessa Williams on 'Go Go Juice' and Kids in Pageants

Former Miss America Vanessa Williams discusses the world of pageants with Anderson about the children who compete in beauty competitions and their parents, saying, "When the child is screaming and saying, 'I don't want to do this,' when they're using special juice to get them hyped… that's not my world, and I would never have my kids do that."

Anderson noted that he actually tried "Go Go Juice," telling Williams, "It's Mountain Dew and Seven-Up."

Vanessa's mother, Helen, said she believes the parents are more consumed by the competition than the kids are.
