A U.K. mother has complained that her 7-year-old's Talkin' Barbie says "What the fuck?" in addition to programmed phrases like "Amaze!" and "I love a makeover!" Is this the work of a disgruntled Mattel employee or has Barbie finally grown sentient and realized how bullshit it is that she works about 50 jobs and all…
I can remember being 13 years old, sitting on the floor of my living room, acting out a scene with two Barbies and a couple of Strawberry Shortcake dolls. (They were all friends!) It was right at a time when the other girls in my class were starting to talk about boys and sex, and wearing high-heels and frosted lip…
TLC should just give this girl her own show already. Plus, she wouldn't get warped by fame like the Gosselins since she already matter-of-factly says stuff like, "I'm four years old and I feel like a superstar."
On last night's episode, Lisa Fulgham, the director of a child beauty pageant, collected between $15,000 - $20,000 in entry fees, and then left before crowning, without paying her bills or leaving any money for the winning contestants.
On last night's season premiere of T&T, 4-year-old pageant contestant Makenzie initially seemed like a soul-eating, tantrum-throwing nightmare, but through her rubber-necking demands, you could see an assertive, take-no-shit attitude shining through. Sometimes brats grow up to be successful ball-busters.
Jeanie Alcalar, whom you may have seen drag her daughter by the arm on the February 17 episode of Toddlers And Tiaras, has had her daycare center's license suspended in light of some pretty upsetting allegations.
Jayne is a 6-year-old who is a total weirdo in that she competes in beauty pageants because she wants to. And despite all the heavy makeup, she's still just a goofy kid who says a lot of delightfully wacky things.
On last night's episode, pageant—and talk show—veteran, 4-year-old Eden and her stage mom Mickie, together with their manager, developed an Eden doll, based on Eden's Vegas showgirl costume. They've deluded themselves into thinking this is a smash hit.
Just as Toddlers & Tiaras started to get stale—and flippers, baby spray tans, and the concept of glitz began to seem normal—the show pulled out a winner last night by featuring an 83-year-old pageant contestant.
On last night's episode, the director of the Southern Glitz Pageant didn't even pretend that "inner beauty" plays into the scoring of the children who competing. So with that in mind, let's judge the following by looks alone.
On last night's episode, one pageant grandma spent a considerable amount of time training her 7-year-old granddaughter to avoid squniting when she smiled. Tyra Banks would be severely disappointed that her tutelage was not heeded.
On last night's episode, one father likened his five-year-old daughter's pageant look to that of a hooker. Lexi, the hooker "lookalike" (hookalike?), is actually hooked on sugar, and her grandmother is not only an enabler, but her supplier.
On last night's season premiere, two of the four children featured were boys whose mothers entered them into the Little Miss Glitz pageant. Of her son, one mother said,"He's so beautiful that he looks like a girl."
Last night's season premiere of We's Little Miss Perfect taught us that not all of the child beauty pageant accoutrements we've gotten to know and hate—mainly those baby dentures called "flippers"—are beneficial to a contestant's score.
Susan Anderson's photography book High Glitz —which includes thought-provoking essays by Simon Doonan and Robert Greene, as well as a guide to everything glitz—presents a portrait of the bizarre American pastime that is the world of child beauty pageants.
On last night's Toddlers & Tiaras, one woman was upset that her 8-year-old daughter no longer fit into her $1,200 custom-made dress, so she put her on a strict, all-fruit diet for the week leading up to the pageant.
Fortunately, the baby didn't have Down Syndrome, and got cute enough for pageantry, according to one mother on last night's Toddlers & Tiaras, who says the documentary Living Dolls inspired her to get her daughter involved in child beauty pageants.
