Under fire from the PTC, and most rational human beings, Wendy Dickey is speaking out in defense of her child's promiscuous beauty pageant outfit.

Dickey is the mother of Paisley, a three-year old girl who, in a recent Toddlers & Tiaras promo, donned an outfit similar to the one Julia Roberts wore when portraying a hooker in Pretty Woman.

But Wendy doesn't see the problem because "no harm was done to my child," she tells TMZ, and, come on, the costume was "less revealing than gymnastics wear and swimsuits."

In conclusion, Dickey oddly reasons: "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!"

Yeah! Like tennis or tee ball!

What do you think of this scandal and the prostitute outfit donned by a toddler?

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?

Who knew Anthony Michael Hall had a wild, aggressive streak?

After screaming obscenities, challenging people to fights in the street, tearing up plants, yelling at people and generally making his condo complex an unpleasant place, the irate actor was arrested by one of his neighbors in Playa del Ray, Ca.

Hall's neighbor made a citizen's arrest, then called in the LAPD.

According to reports, the actor has often been seen acting aggressive outside of his unit, cursing at people who happen to be walk by, flipping them off and even attempting to squirt people with a hose ... for no apparent reason.

Several neighbors complained to the housing association but no action had been taken against The Breakfast Club and Weird Science star.

One person tells us, "I have considered buying a gun to stay safe from Hall ... he's the scariest person I've ever encountered in my life."

Despite a ruling by the Los Angeles County Coroner that Russell Armstrong died via suicide by hanging, the family of this late reality star reportedly believes he was murdered.

Taylor Armstrong and Family

TMZ sources report family members are convinced Armstrong's financial woes led him down a path "with the wrong people" and one of them killed him out of retaliation. They will allegedly hire a private investigator to look into the matter.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills aired its second season premiere last night, which featured the woman talking awkwardly about Russell's death. You can view that scene HERE.

San Diego police said on Friday that Rebecca Zahau's death was caused by her suicide, but what was only referenced and not revealed until this point was a mysterious message she left in the home of Jonah Shacknai.

Medical Examiner Investigator Dana Gary has since told San Diego's CBS News 8 that the suicide note was painted in black on the bedroom door. The paint was found on Zahau's hands and the rope around her neck.

The message: She Saved Him Can You Save Her.

"I noted black painted writings on the bedroom door that led into the room with the balcony," said Gary, declining to speculate on the words' meaning.

Zahau (a.k.a. Rebecca Nalepa) was found naked, hands and feet bound, hanging by a makeshift noose in the courtyard of Shacknai's mansion in Coronado, Calif.

Her body was discovered July 13, just hours after she accessed her voicemail on which was a message about the grave condition of Shacknai's 6-year-old son Max, who was in the hospital after falling down a staircase days earlier.

The child later died from his injuries.

Michael Pedicone is no longer the drummer for My Chemical Romance, a decision the band arrived at today after the musician allegedly stole a bunch of items from the group following its show in Washington on Thursday night.

A message on the artists' website said Pedicone was caught "red handed" and that he even confessed to police later that evening.

"The band has no intention of pressing charges or taking this matter any further than we have to. We just want him out of our lives," My Chemical Romance members wrote.

No word yet on just what Pedicone ganked, but he didn't really deny the incident in a recent Tweet:

"What happened is more complicated than it sounds but I did make a mistake. It was never my intention to hurt this band or all of you."

Nope, we cannot all just get along.

Michael Colyar, a veteran actor best known for his role in Barbershop, was kicked off a United Airlines flight last week and proceeded to go on a rant against the alleged racist basis for such an action.

Now, he plans to sue.

TMZ reports that Colyar has hire Milton Grime, the lawyer who won $3.8 million for Rodney King after police were caught on tape in 1991 viciously beating that civilian down.

While passengers on Colyar's flight say the actor was loud and obnoxious, he believes flight attendants only gave him the boot because he's African-American and, we assume, he's seeking a large cash settlement as a result.

Soulja Boy's anti-military rap is, not surprisingly, drawing fire from the U.S. Armed Forces. What is somewhat surprising is to see a retired Army sergeant leading the charge with a response to the controversial song in rap form!

Leo Dunson, a five-year combat veteran, recorded the trac, "Change Your Name" after hearing Soulja Boy's "Let's Be Real." Basically, Dunson - who raps under the name Sgt. Dunson - comes at Soulja early and often (NSFW lyrics):

Dunson says Soulja Boy's song is, "The most ignorant thing I've heard in so long" and is especially offensive with the 10-year anniversary of 9/11 looming.

He says a petition to get Soulja Boy's music banned from all U.S. military bases is getting support from civilians and all branches of the armed forces.

Soulja Boy is, of course, legally free to rap about whatever the heck he wants, but Sgt. Dunson and U.S. troops are certainly free to not like it and hit back.

Amanda Knox is back in court in Italy, appealing her conviction for the 2007, high-profile murder of Meredith Kercher, whose sister publicly appealed for justice.

Knox and Kercher were college exchange students - Knox from Seattle, Kercher from the UK - when Meredith was foun  murdered in the Italian house they shared.

Knox was convicted of the killing in 2009, along with then-boyfriend Raffaelo Sollecito and another man. Kercher's sister Stephanie railed against her appeal.

Amanda Knox claims the DNA evidence used against her was unreliable.

In a letter released by her family's Italian lawyer, Stephanie Kercher, says:

"In these last few weeks we have been left seriously anxious and greatly troubled by the news regarding the original DNA findings in the case."

'It is extremely difficult to understand how the results, obtained with great care and presented in the first trial as valid, could now be regarded as irrelevant."

As part of her appeal, new DNA experts were brought in, with some experts claiming evidence used to convict Knox was unreliable and should be excluded.

A decision on the appeal of Knox is expected this month.

A number of military veterans are demanding an apology from Soulja Boy after the rapper ignited a wave of controversy with his song, "Let's Be Real."

After plugging his Twitter page (really), Soulja drops this bomb:

"F**k the FBI and the army troops ... fighting for what? Be your own man ... I'll be flying through the clouds with green like I'm Peter Pan."

Mmmyeah. Here's the (very NSFW) song ...

Fred A. Flores, a retired U.S. Marine and now a commissioner for the L.A. County Veteran’s Advisory Commission, spoke out against this "offensive statement."

Flores, who has two children currently serving in the military, calls Soulja Boy "Ungrateful" ... adding, "He should apologize to ALL armed forces."

"[The rap] is very irresponsible, especially for an entertainer for the youth of our country, and especially with the 10th anniversary of 9/11 coming up."

Seriously, Soulja. Just because you spell your name wrong doesn't give you license to start bashing actual soldiers who protect your ass daily.
