Toddlers and Tiaras...New Trainwreck TV on TLC


Rock Star's Soon To Be Ex-Wife and I went to see Slumdog Millionaire on Saturday night(A+++- one of the best movies ever) and before we left her house, she had the television tuned into a show with which I was not familiar.....Toddlers and Tiaras. In a nutshell, it follows trailer trash parents and their poor victims children preparing for and participating in beauty pageants...we are seriously talking about girls ages 1-13. It was total trainwreck television!! I couldn't believe my eyes. These child abusers stage parents transformed their babies into harlots....we are talking wigs, hairpieces, eye makeup, fake eyelashes, fake teeth and despicable horrendous, tacky dresses, gowns and bathing suits. I was surprised I didn't see any implants...lip or breast.

I am appalled by the shit these parents actually put their children through.....I think it will psychologically scar the kids forever. All I could think of was poor Jon Benet. Narcissists in training!

The funniest part of the show was a pageant for mothers and daughters. Horrors of horrors. Enter one trailer trash mother who wore a gold lame all in one costume with her fat gut and belly rolls hanging out and twirled a baton in the talent portion. She actually put on a bathing suit and walked the catwalk with big thunderous cellulite thighs. Her hair was long, unkempt and looked like she hadn't had a haircut in years. To top it off, she had let her color grow out so the top part of her hair looked like she was wearing a cap. I screamed and howled in horror! Rocker's Ex couldn't believe how I reacted, but she agreed with me. I think she is not as passionate a fashionista police as I am. And one of the daddies has more estrogen than I do.... fussing over his daughter's frilly dress(probably has an identical one in his closet)....and working on the kid's dance steps telling her to be sexy. Ugh! So, if you have some extra time on your hands for some guilty pleasure tv since The Bachelor and douche bag Jason are gone, tune into Toddlers and Tiaras. I think it originally airs on Tuesday at 10(unfortunately it conflicts with my beloved Nip/Tuck and Real Housewives) but repeats throughout the week. I promise you fashionistas and real moms an escape from reality treat!

I catch bits of this show on the reality show updates on The Soup, The Dish, BWE, etc.....that shit freaks me out too much to watch an entire episode!

That's why I call it trainwreck television. I kind of watch with a hand over my face and my mouth open wide enough to catch flies.

Ok, AC,
I caught the Toddlers last night, and although it was somewhat disturbing, I was completely taken in by 4 year old Kaleigha! She's the one that kept telling her daddy to 'Shut up!'. I'm coming back for some more Kaleigha!

So how bout that finale of Nip Tuck? What a cliffhanger! Poor Liz - Christian is so gonna dump her. I don't know the guy's name that plays Shawn, but dang he is so hot!!!

Ah, this sounds like the kind of trainwreck right up my alley. I love it when grown women make fools of themselves for no reason what-so-ever...
