Anderson Cooper Gives ‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ Moms A Pageant Makeover
I've never hid my hatred for the abomination of a show that is "Toddlers & Tiaras". Turns out that I'm not the only one that doesn't like it.
It seems Anderson Cooper isn't huge fan of the show, either, and decided that he needed to show some of the moms from the show how ridiculous some of the things they do to their children are. So, on Friday, Anderson had four moms and their pageant queen daughters on the show.
What happened next is both amusing and completely horrifying. The mothers were all given makeovers to look like their daughters do when they're all dressed up for a pageant.
One of the mothers, Alicia, was put into a Lady Gaga inspired costume that she has her daughter wear in pageants. When her episode of "Toddlers & Tiaras" aired, people were outraged about how revealing the outfit was. Did having to wear an adult-sized version make mom change her tune? Of course not,
I mean, she doesn’t have anything. It’s not showing anything. It’s a swimsuit for her.
Anderson also tried "Go-go juice", a mixture of Mountain Dew and Red Bull that mom June (the Coupon Queen) gives to her daughter Alana (Honey Boo Boo Child) on pageant days. When he asked her if she thought giving her child that much caffeine and sugar was a good thing to do, June defended her actions by saying that it's not like she gives it to her every day. And, that at least she doesn't fill her full of candy like other moms do.
