'Toddlers & Tiaras' Star Eden Wood Is Stepping Down — Oh No!

Thu, June 16, 2011 1:47pm EST by 10 Comments

At just six-years-old Eden is taking a break from competing in pageants to pursue her music career and new reality show.

Eden Wood is saying goodbye to pageants and hello to Hollywood. The season premiere of Toddlers & Tiaras premiered on June 15 and Eden and Makenzie battled it out for the crown — but her catfighting days are over!

“She is too big for pageants,” Eden’s mom Mickie Wood tells the New York Post. “We are not planning on doing any more. She is all about performing, but it is not about the hair and makeup and the big dresses anymore.”

Honestly, we’re beyond shocked. We knew Eden’s momager had Hollywood in her eyes as soon as she got a taste of the glitz and glamour during the season premiere.

But then again, Eden has been receiving quite a bit of disturbing hate mail — her mother has been getting Facebook messages from people saying things like “go shoot yourself” or “we don’t want your type of American trash.”

So we can see why Eden and her mom may be concerned and would want a break. But to quit pageants for good? What will the tiny toddler pageant world do without her?

But this isn’t the last you’ll see of Eden — she and her family are reporting filming a new reality show called Eden Wood Goes Hollywood.

Eden I think is a really good pageant princess. I think that if she doesn’t want to do it then she doesn’t have too. Ede I hope’s makes some more cute songs because I love them and I hope that you come back to pageants sometime!!!

First of all, I do not have children, however, I believe that putting your children in pageants is no different than enrolling them in dance classes or football or piano lessons or whatever. Second of all – who in their RIGHT MIND would say such horrible things to the mother of a child. Do they think they’re HELPING? NO little girl should ever have to endure such cruel treatment. That’s what’s wrong with women. We don’t like someone, so instead of ignoring them, we have to rip them apart? She’s a baby. I’ve read some disgusting things said about this precious child. The authors should be ashamed of themselves. We as women need to band together and HELP our little girls instead of tearing them apart because let me tell you – it’s a lot worse for them NOW than it was for US growing up. Life is hard enough already.

***Not the authors of this article, of course. I mean the authors of hate-blogs tearing the child and mother apart.

Some of these kids actually want to do it so don’t say that the mom is forcing her! she’s not! and your the one thats discussing I cant believe that you would make a reference of a 6 year old to being a stripper!

Toddlers and Tiaras, is disgusting. The MOM Of EDEN tells her to “pull yourself together” “I can’t take it”
Well you should be ashamed of yourself for putting a little girl through all this. YOU want the fame and MONEY. The little 80′s dance………are you training her to be a stripper or pole dancer. Shame on you. All of those women want their kids to win. WHO gets that money? The child or MOM? The show is a joke
