'Toddlers and Tiaras' Mom

Baby Hooker Outfit Is Harmless

9/7/2011 11:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The mother of the 3-year-old girl dressed as a prostitute on "Toddlers and Tiaras" tells TMZ, she's a good mom -- and insists "no harm was done to my child" by dressing her as a hooker.

Wendy Dickey tells us, her kid had no idea what she was dressed as anyway -- and the costume was "less revealing than gymnastics wear and swimsuits."

According to Wendy, the hooker outfit (below left) -- based on Julia Roberts' character from "Pretty Woman" -- "is a lot less harmful."

Wendy says she dressed her daughter as the "classy" Julia Roberts from the end of the movie as well (below right) -- but TLC edited that part out.

Wendy says, "I'm raising my child just as well as any mother does ... I take my kid to church every week ... at least I'm not forcing them into sports and getting my child injured like some parents."

Wendy adds, "People need to look at their own family and what they're doing. I don't know why people are focusing so much on pageant moms when there's much more harmful things people are letting their children do!"

"at least I'm not forcing them into sports and getting my child injured like some parents."

Physical injuries heal in time, psychological trauma is a bit harder to reverse. And why don't these moron moms/dads just cut to the chase? Skip the pageants and plop your daughter on a street corner. You're already acting as your kid's pimp anyway.

"Mom" has serious image issues.
ALL, and I mean ALL, beauty pageant Moms have an identity crisis all their own but, this is totally uncalled for.
imagine if she had a son.. Male bulging package and all?

I love how she tries to put down athletes. "at least I'm not forcing them into sports and getting my child injured like some parents." I would much rather have my child dressed, socializing, learning discipline and how to have good sportsmanship than wearing a mini skirt and hooker boots prancing around the stage. No parent puts their kid in sports to get hurt. Do kids get injured? Sure, they do. They also learn not to quit by continuing to play the sport after an injury. I wanna know, how dressing a child like a prostitute is more benefitial than play sports??

Perhaps you should dress your child like this to go to 'church'. See what your congregation thinks.Freak.

Her daughter should be taken from her and then she the mother should be permanently removed from the gene pool.

wow...just wow. what kind of person thinks a child playing sports is WORSE than dressing your kids up as hookers and exploiting them for money. When she takes her child to church every week does she force her wear the hooker uniform there to...

Obviously, this mother does not really know the plot of the movie. Julia Roberts' character is a hooker at the beginning of the movie and still a hooker when she buys new clothes. Richard Gere's character is her John. You dressed your daughter as a street walker prostitute and a conservatively dressed prostitute. Who were you trying to impress, or was the point to shock and have your name moved to the forefront of the other pageant moms living vicariously through their children. Please examine the message that you are sending your child: it is acceptable to denigrate yourself for fleeting notoriety.

REALLY?!!! I honestly say honestly that I would rather my children be in sports ANY DAY than be paraded around half naked in a pageant. At least in football my son doesn't have to wiggle his butt or make a fool out of himself.

Lady, you are one sick bitch! You live through your child. What youb are doing is child abuse. Obviously she does not want to be doing this. I don't want to hear "she loves it, she says she wants to do this." I say bull!!! How would a little baby her age know what she wants. No, I am sorry but this is on you.
For you to say "she doesn't know she is in a hooker dress" well no, of course not, she is to young. You do however, only you are responsible for this child abuse. I hope they fry you. Don't you know that shows like this attract pedaphiles?? You want your child to come up missing?? You stupid cow get with the program!!!!

I agree that this woman is nuts but would like to add that sports are normal for kids and produce a team attitude not a diva attitude. Also one can get a full ride to college playing sports, how many beauty queens get full rides for just being pretty

I hate everyhing Pageant!!!!! I have a sister in law that tried getting my grandaughter involved in pageants, I hated it, my daughter was told that she could make money from these idiotic pageants and so she let her take over and put her in one after another, she did win all of them, it lasted a few years, but no one ever saw a dime, so I told my daughter this isn't for the children, Pageants are for pyscho women that have a gigantic need to live through their little girls, it's what they need to survive, these little innocent girls grow up to be the snottiest "I'm better than you" attitude snapper heads, sister in laws daughter is a prime example, and she's 20 now and still thinks she's a princess, biotch!!! Thank gawd my granddaughter is no longer invovled in that crap!!! She's only 4 and she deserves a normal life!!
