Toddlers & Tiaras Reaches a New Low

by at . Comments

Toddlers & Tiaras is a show on TLC that focuses on parents who dress their children up in ridiculous outfits, force them to learn a talent and then pressure them to perform in tyke-based beauty pageants around the country.

In other words: there's very little high ground to be found anywhere on this series.

Yet the reality program has still managed to reach a new low, airing a promo this week that focuses on Paisley, A THREE-YEAR OLD CONTESTANT, who is dressed like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, i.e. a prostitute.

Rages the Parents Television Council in response: "We have a serious problem when a network formerly known as The Learning Channel features a toddler, who probably hasn't even learned to read, dressed as a prostitute showing off her sexy strut.

"For years we've seen adult sexuality being inappropriately and aggressively foisted on innocent young children, but children today are being sexualized at younger and younger ages. All available data suggests they will suffer for it later in life."

What do you think of this crude get-up?


Ohh Career choices....Baby hookers??? These moms need 2 be slapped! HARD!


This is just as bad as that dance group full of 5 year old girls dancing like whores to "Single Ladies." They're lucky there were no pedophiles at the competition, or that little girl's mom might've gotten some offers.


@Brenda: One answer would be that the parents are the ones not "letting the children be children." They are forcing them in to the pageants.
The second answer would be that Dolly Parton is a country singer, while Julia Roberts PLAYED A HOOKER. But the third answer is that this is just the worst of the worst. ALL parents placing their kids in these shows have serious mental issues.


so what is the difference in this child and the one who was dressed like dolly parton? Everyone said how cute she was! Come on there is no difference!!! These are children let be children now while they still can be! Stop exploitting thses little girls to win!


that was actually not as bad as i thought it was going to be. the idea of even putting her into that persona is horrible, but at least she was completely covered, not actually dressed like a prostitute...ugh if they kids want to do the pagents then let them, but you are the parent it's your responsability to keep things appropriate. yeesh


How about the one that was dressed as Daisy Duke in itty bitty shorts and walked around seductively. These pageants must be every kiddie perv's dream. Anyone who has not seen the Tom Hanks spoof on Toddlers and Tiaras on Youtube should go look it up. It is so funny and so true.


Someone please tell me what these mother's are thinking when they do this to their daughter...Like these kids know the difference between right and wrong when they are dressed like this,,,
