Last night on Toddlers & Tiaras, we spent quite a bit of time with Tricia, SamiJo's mom. Tricia, who has a Jesus fish tattoo and a cross-adorned plaque in the kitchen of her crossy home which reads, "when in doubt, look up" explained to us that much has changed since we saw her earlier this year. For starters, she had to have a breast augmentation so that she could be in the Mrs. Oklahoma pageant. It was "necessary," she informed us. She did not win (or place) in the competition, but that's okay, because her "ultimate goal" is to be in the Lingerie Football League. Meanwhile, when Tricia was going through SamiJo's heavily-Photoshopped photographs, and SamiJo expressed distaste (eewwww) about one picture, Tricia said, "You don't like that one? You look chubby?" Way to put words in a two-year-old's mouth (and possibly body-conscious thoughts in her mind). Also! It was really amusing the way Tricia explained that by doing pageants herself, she now has a lot more respect "for what SamiJo enjoys." As though she made a serious effort and went outside of her comfort zone to experience something her child is interested in. Ha. The kid is not the pageant enthusiast. You are. Own up to it.
