The TLC show “Toddlers & Tiaras” takes viewers inside the competitive world of child pageants. But is it really appropriate for the little ones?
On Tuesday night, HLN’s Dr. Drew was joined by Wendy Dickey, who defended dressing her daughter as a "Pretty Woman" prostitute character on the show.
“People have not been in my home,” she said. “They don't know how I raise my children. They don't know the values that I instill with my children. They want to base my entire parenthood on the show.”
Dickey also says that there’s a big difference that takes place during the actual filming.
“I will say that people go to extremes when the cameras come on, and that’s what you get and that’s what is perceived through the TV -- but don't judge me based on a reality, edited TV show.”
