Toddlers & Tiaras's Emily was on Good Day L.A. today. Her father says she's been doing pageants since infancy to learn "poise and self-confidence." Well, she hasn't, as evidenced by the fact that she's afraid to speak without parental prompting.
Seriously, these pageant people are always going on about the importance of personality, which they feel their children will gain from parading around onstage. Granted, Emily is only four, but if she has been in front of an audience since she was three months old, and she can't answer simple yes or no questions without guidance, then the glare of the spotlight is probably not something she's interested in.
