It is on between Vanessa Williams and one of the moms involved with Toddlers & Tiaras.

During an appearance this week with Anderson Cooper on his talk show, the actress said of the aforementioned series:

"When the child is screaming and saying, ‘I don’t want to do this. I don’t feel like doing it.’ When they are using special juice to get them hyped... that’s not my world and I would never have my kids do that.”

Cue a reaction from Wendy Dickey, the mother of Paisley, a controversial member of the Toddlers & Tiaras cast who has dressed like a hooker and like a biker girl for segments on the show.

"Posing nude and having an abortion is 'not my world' and I would never have my kids do that," Wendy said, referring to Vanessa's Playboy past and her recent admission that she aborted a fetus in high school. "So easy on the judging Vanessa!"

The claws are out and it's getting personal on both sides. Which are you on?

Desperate Housewives star Vanessa Williams is bravely and surprisingly opening up about sexual abuse she endured as a 10-year-old at the hands of a teenage girl.

In a revealing interview in the new issue of People, Williams says the incident occurred when she was staying with family friends and their 18-year-old daughter.

The 18-year-old entered her room and “pulled down the bloomers of my cotton baby doll pajamas,” said Vanessa. “I lay there paralyzed. What was I going to do?”

Williams remained close-lipped about the sexual abuse for many years, but is now sharing her secret in her upcoming memoir, fittingly titled You Have No Idea.

Despite the childhood trauma, the former Miss America said it didn’t emotionally scar her for life - however, there were long-lasting, indirect consequences.

“It didn’t paralyze me, and I don’t dwell,” she explained, although it did cause her to act more rebellious and “pull away” from her parents as a youngster.
