We all know that some parents live out their dreams through their children. But it's one thing to know it and another to watch it happen in all it'srhinestoned, overly made-up sadness. Toddlers and Tiaras is another brick in TLC's plan to give every psychotic person their own reality show.
This show follows the lives of prepubescent pageant contestants and their mentally ill mothers who force them to compete. Each episode focuses on three young girls who are hoping to take home the crown for Ultimate Mega Jumbo Laser Supreme, the highest title in beauty pageants. In almost every case the children hate it but their mothers won't let them quit. As an added bonus, some of the moms suffer from another mental illness called Extreme Couponing.
There's only one person to bring on for an episode about at terrifying TLC reality show: Colleen. You may remember her from Episode #106 - Hoarders Reviewed and just like Hoarders, she's already watched this whole series. It's sick, but it comes in handy for our podcast.
