Toddlers and Tiaras

This week, Toddlers and Tiaras went north to New York for the Darling Divas pageant in Brooklyn, New York. That's right; pageants don't just happen in the South, ya'll.

But despite the change in locale, the pageant, contestants, and parents were mostly the same.

Well, except Liana's mom, who was just a bit creepy in her calm, I-don't-like-useless-emotion manner. And for her, it seems "useless" emotions are ALL emotions. Her voice never changed octaves during the entire show in which she refused to "hoot and holler."

She made her daughter Liana's dress and did her makeup to save money, which is admirable. But if she's trying so hard to save money, perhaps she could hawk some of those crazy figurines cluttering her shelves?

Also, her daughter, 8, who the other contestants nicknamed "long-haired girl," REALLY needs a haircut (it's 42 inches long and has never been cut!).

Kylie, 3, was actually adorable and hilarious. Not surprisingly, she took home the big prize of the night, especially after her impressive rendition of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean." And I have to say Kylie was one of the only young contestants I've ever seen that actually seemed to be enjoying the whole experience instead of being forced into it.

Whether that's a good or bad thing, I don't know ...

The best line of the night came from Keanna's grandmother, Edna, when she saw her young granddaughter try on her flippers.

"Fake teeth is for old people, and Keanna is only 5, " she said, while howling with laughter.

Exactly!

Did you watch Toddlers and Tiaras this week? Thoughts?
