Toddlers & Tiaras is back and it’s worse than ever.
This go around, pageant mommy Susanna reaches for straight up sugar packets to give her 5-year-old daughter Isabella energy.
How hopped up on sugar are these mini beauty queens?
Pageant crack, indeed.
This pageant mom doesn’t mess around with candy or Honey Boo Boo Child’s infamous “go go juice” – nope, she pours sugar packets down Isabella’s throat and away she goes.
I admit, the first season, I had a mild fascination with Toddlers & Tiaras, before it got over-the-top and downright out of hand.
From the eyebrow waxing, spray tans and “flippers” that make their smiles perfect, to loading them up on sugary sodas and pixie sticks and getting them dolled up in questionable costumes well, it was all entirely too much for me to handle, and I know I’m not alone.
Here’s an interesting clip I came across last week, where a Toddlers & Tiaras mom freely admits, “I love living vicariously through my daughter.”
That about sums it all up, doesn’t it?
(By the way, that would be child pageant star Paisley’s mom you know, the one who dressed her kid up as Julia Roberts’ Pretty Woman hooker character?)
Most of these pageant moms seem to be living some kind of dream of fame through their kids, and will go to great lengths to get their child their 15 minutes of fame, and – by extension -get them in the spotlight too.
After all, why do they spend so much money and time and put their little girls through so much?
