We always knew the show Toddlers & Tiaras was a hot, stinkin’ mess, mostly because of the parents who did the absolute most to have their babies win. Remember the little girl dressed as Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman? Mess, I say!
Well this crazy show with its VERY crazy pageant parents and kiddies we feel sorry for, had its season premiere last night on TLC, and of course it has people talking. A mother of two, Katie, professed that she had her kids for the sake of getting them into these pageants. Not because she really wanted to just have kids, but because she could parade them around in sequin delights! And while she had a little girl, five-year-old Riley, and a son, six-year-old Bob, she gets both of them involved, dressing Bob in fake eyelashes and teaching him to walk and twirl and also how to give big, “fierce smiles.” The whole family love them some drag queens, attend drag shows on the regular, and are huge fans of RuPaul.
“We take a lot of our inspiration from RuPaul. He’s our favorite queen.”
I love me some RuPaul’s Drag Race as much as the next person, but that’s really crazy.
And let’s not forget the fact that she said she has taken little Riley to Applebees and had her dancing and singing the song “Pokerface” on top of the bar. But it’s all good, because she didn’t get dollars throw at her, right? That’s what momma Katie says: “It’s not like people threw dollars at her or anything. She’s not a stripper.”
I need these mothers to really get a hobby and let these children focus on school and just being kids. I didn’t know what a drag queen was into I was in junior high! They’re a little too grown already. Doing the most? Oh, indeed! (*in my Omar voice*) Check out the video of the family below from last night’s episode below, courtesy of E!.
Well, alright. Thoughts?
