‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ Moms Get Shocking Makeovers On Anderson Cooper

Toddlers & Tiaras Makeover

These infamous women dress their daughters up in over-the-top and revealing costumes, but now the pageant moms are getting the beauty queen treatment themselves!

On Anderson Cooper‘s talk show, four of the most controversial moms from TLC’s Toddlers and Tiaras were given pageant makeovers to mimic their daughters! Did it make the moms think twice about making their young daughters perform in revealing outfits and extreme makeup?

Alana Thompson, aka “Honey Boo Boo Child,” and her mom, June Shannon, wore hot pink tutus and ruffles. June says her corset was tight, but she thought the outfit was fun.

“We have had a blast,” she says. “This is something we’ll laugh about for years to come. This is fun, this is all about having fun.”

For June, the experiment didn’t change her attitude: “I don’t rethink any decision that I’ve made for my daughter as far as pageants.”

She even compared the highly competitive pageant world to sports. “To us women who do it everyday, it is a sport,” June explains. “Alana, she loves doing it, she’s not into the basketball or the baseball or anything like that.”

The mother of 8-year-old Laci Crews wasn’t a fan of her Lady Gaga-esque costume, who described the revealing spandex getup as “weird.” Yet, she didn’t have any problem with her young daughter sporting the look.

“I mean, she doesn’t have anything, it’s different for children,” Alicia Morgan said. “It’s not showing anything. It’s a swimsuit for her.”

Check out the rest of the interviews and makeovers on Anderson Cooper when it airs on Friday, Feb. 17!

As a child model, I started when I was 3 having won a beauty contest at age 3, maybe it is cute now, but I would like to see these children followed as they grow up.
My experience is that it took me years to realize that I am MORE than what is seen on the outside. It is unfortunate that our culture place so much emphasis on what we look like and less on who we are truly.
Our advertising places too much emphasis on the outer and less on the inner.
I think these moms do not understand what they are doing to their daughters.

This is going to follow these girls for the rest of their lives. How much more will they lose out on when colleges and future employers see the videos. Once it is out there, it is out there forever and if they’ll do that at the age of 5,6,7 what will they be willing to do at 25, 30, 40. These things are looked at by prospective employers and they ask if they want that person representing them. Even if these girls make it to adulthood with their egos intact, they will still be handicapped by something totally beyond their control just so their moms can feel good about themselves.

Where is modesty and morals now? My childhood was much happier and much less pressured. Shame on these parents, Shame on the networks and what they broadcast.

Honestly, the woman on the far right looks like shes enjoying being in that outfit. I mean, shes not fat, so she might actually look good. Or at least think she looks good.
