The battle for the crown took place but it was Chloe’s mom that shocked our reporter Chloe on the June 22 episode and it was the hairdresser who forgot to bring her brush that appalled our intern Scott!
Chloe, the 9-year-old eventual winner of the ultimate crown, wore Daisy Duke shorts, much to the chagrin of the judges — but little did they know that what pain her mother put her through beforehand!
We watched in horror as Chloe’s mother took her to the beauty salon for highlights and waxing. This is absolutely ridiculous. What’s worse is what Chloe’s mom had the nerve to say: “If it would come down to facial beauty alone, (Chloe) doesn’t have that particular look that a lot of judges are looking for,” Chloe’s mom says. “She does have brown eyes with the dirty blonde hair. It doesn’t stand out like a beautiful redhead or a blond-haired, blue-eyed child.”
Honestly, if I ran into this woman on the street I’d really like to give her a piece of my mind. Talk about instilling insecurity into her daughter’s mind forever. It’s a pageant people — and she’s 9!
First there was was Halle, 4, who was rewarded with beef jerky by her mother the way a dog is rewarded with treats by its owner. But, I’m sure we can all agree that this episode belonged entirely to a girl named Saryniti (pronounced ‘Serenity’) and her stepmom, Ca’Trina (pronounced ‘Katrina’).
Making her glitz pageant debut, Saryniti, 6, comes from an uber-religious home where a decision isn’t made without Jesus’ input. Ca’Trina takes Saryniti to get her first spray tan, a trip she had to “pray really hard about.” Don’t worry, she got permission.
It wasn’t until we got to the pageant that we saw just how unprepared Ca’Trina and Sarinity really were. They had asked A FRIEND to help do Sarinity’s hair and make-up. Not a trained professional. Merely a friend of the family. And guess what this friend, tasked with doing Sarinity’s hair forgot to bring. A brush. THE HAIR PERSON FORGOT TO BRING A BRUSH.
Ca’Trina was forced to run through the hotel to find one of those complimentary “Picture Day” little black combs. The friend also forgot hot rollers. “Jesus loves me, but I cannot walk on water,” the friend said. Call me crazy, but I don’t think that bringing a comb to do someone’s hair is exactly asking you to perform miracles.
However, once again Sarinity showed her “newbie” status when she began hysterical crying when she found out she didn’t win the 3/4-year-old division, one she wasn’t even eligible for. I think it’s safe to say we won’t be seeing Sarinity competing again anytime in the future.
