Toddlers & Tiaras Parents Divorce Over Pageant Costs

When Tricia and her daughter SammiJo were first featured on an episode of Toddlers & Tiaras last year, she and her husband fought in front of the cameras about money. He believed that the estimated $100,000 that they'd spent on pageants was a waste. Oddly, he had included the expense of his wife's "boob job" into that figure. We can't even guess why a mother would need breast implants for her child's beauty pageant, but 10 years ago, we also would've scoffed at the idea of children routinely wearing dentures in order to compete, so what do we know? Anyway, Tricia and her daughter are going to be featured on another episode of the show tonight. A lot has changed for them in eight months: Tricia and her husband are now divorced. She and her four kids are living with her new boyfriend and she's supporting the family by working at Hooters and as a cage girl at MMA fights. So it looks like the boobs probably were a good investment after all!

I'm now annoyed that "Cage Girl at MMA fights" and "Pageant Mom" were not choices at my high school career day.
