I don’t know if you’ve seen TLC’s “Toddlers & Tiaras” yet but it uses babies in pageants to gain viewership. The show looks at the world of child beauty pageants. WELL, [lastfm link_type=""]Steel Magnolia[/lastfm]‘s Meghan Linsey found herself caught up in a twister two days ago so she hit up her Twitter to chat about the show.
“Wow! Watching Toddlers and Tiaras! RIDICULOUS!!” She added, “These moms are sick in the head, for sure! #toddlersandtiaras.” While the singer’s statement would upset pageant moms and advocates, many of her fans who watch the show would agree. But of course, that’s what keeps viewers coming back week after week.
For Linsey, the most alarming thing about the show, in addition to the beauty-obsessed mothers, is the fact that the toddlers are wearing pounds of makeup. Linsey says: “I’m on stage every night and I don’t wear half the make up these babies are wearing! #stillwatching #toddlersandtiaras.” Well enough is enough, and she finally told her followers that’s it for one evening, and changed the channel. She tweeted: ”I’ve moved on to some “real” quality tv #chelsealately.”
