‘Toddlers and Tiara’s’ Mothers Pumping Daughters with Secret ‘Pageant Crack’
Makeup, fake tans, teeth whitening, weaves, we’re all well aware that these are the sorts of primping techniques that go hand in hand with pageantry, but mothers are also pumping their little girls with suspicious substances to make them “perform.”
On this week’s episode, of “Toddler’s and Tiara’s,” June Holler, mother of 6-year-old, Alana, told producers about the various things she’s used to excite her daughter before she goes on stage.
“We had tried Pixy Stix, as they’re called ‘pageant crack.’ We went through fifteen bags at one pageant, and it just don’t do anything for her.”
Now, it seems, an unidentified “special juice” is doing the trick. Because of the green bottle her daughter can be seen drinking from, some have assumed the liquid is simply Mountain Dew, although others speculate it may be alcohol. From June’s description, it could be a mixture of both that’s giving her daughter the extra “oomph” she was going for.
“A lot of mom says, ‘Oh, well you’re doping up your child’, well hey, no I’m not. I’m not hurting her,” she said.
“She just drinks it for pageants, to give her that extra “oomph”. So, whatever works for your child, use it.”
Do you think pageant organizers need to step up and regulate some of the preparations mothers put their children through before competitions?
