I have a love/hate relationship with the show "Toddlers & Tiaras". On one side, I love it, because it often makes me feel better about myself as a person. And about how I would be as a parent, since I certainly wouldn't be anything like the fame-hungry monster mothers on the show. On the other hand, I feel bad for the kids, who are made to think that pageants are the greatest thing in the world, and that failure is not an option, ever. I'm pretty sure it leads to self-esteem problems and eating disorders and most likely a myriad of other problems later in life.
Tonight is the season finale of "Toddlers & Tiaras", and I think they've really outdone themselves this time. In this episode, we go out with our pint-sized divas heading to a pageant in Arkansas, where a face-off between three girls and their coaches turns ugly.
