'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!"

It's funny....in the privacy of your own home. I doubt a pedophile will get off any more at this get up than others. They are attracted to children, so maybe making your daughter look like a hooker will actually help ward them off. I think the mom made a horrible call on this one and is doing further harm to the reputation of pageants.

how is this NOT child pornography? these parents are turning them into little whores, just feeding pedophiles with what they want. It is DISGUSTING that a tv network will actually allow this to be shown. If any of these children are abducted or harmed it is their parents fault...they belong in jail for pimping out their kids.

"At least I'm not forcing them into sports..." Lady, LISTEN to yourself!!! You're not forcing them into sports, you're forcing her into a prostitute costume. Jesus Christ!

"I don't know why people are focusing so much on pageant moms..."

Uhm, because we're more worried about the pedophiles watching your toddler strut about dressed like a hooker than you are and, well, somebody needs to care. It's obvious you don't.

BTW - My kids are too busy for pageants. They're busy being kids. I once thought about entering one of them into a 'Beautiful Baby' contest but while I was waiting to get the paperwork I heard some of the other parents talking about their pageant experiences... I left and never thought about that crap again.

That show is truly PATHETIC and they have sicko parents. I am against this show. Kids should not be forced to do this and the only reason they put their kids through this is just to get money!

This is a pathetic show to begin with..TLC needs to stop producing this show so morons like this " mother" * rolls eyes* can stop doing these retarded pagents for their own personal gains. Please, people, don'*****ch this ****!

Yes dumbass...that IS inappropriate. Obviously this child has no idea what a prostitue is, but "Mom" does. The women that stick their daughters in these stupid contests are living vicariously through their kids. Starved for attention...even if it means setting your kid up for heartbreak because A) they didn't win or B) they will continue to expect all this attention later in life, and we ALL know how young girls get that attention. Sad...

Who would even waste their time watching this show? Nothing more than parents exploiting their children.

If the pageants are supposed to be about little girls winning by looking like cute little girls then why the "f" are they being dressed up like prostitutes??? Clearly it's not about being a pretty little girl. These Mom's (if you can call them that) and these shows are truly deranged and should be stopped! Dressing them up like a princess if far different from dressing them up like a whore. Think about that you daft cow!

Wendy honey - your daughter is not cute now and most likely will not ever be cute. Also you are a lousy mother, you don't dress children in hooker outfits. But obviously your mother was a lousy mother too and you didn't know that!

South of the Mason-Dixon line is the toilet of America....they have a whole differnt form of thinking, they see this as just fine, when the rest of the normal people in America know just how wrong and creepy for that matter, this is...clearly these womne are living through their off-spring.

Especially some of the pigs on that show, those women should be worried about how they look before worring about dressing their own daughters up as hookers. And one last thought, what about the perverts out there who just love these web sites, as a Mother of two grown girls 24 and 21, the thought of some gross out dude gettin' off on photos of my little girls makes me want to puke. How do they just push that aside? Is that all their girls are? Really? Beauty queens? How about smart? Is that out of fashion down there too?

Aagain, south of the Mason-Dixon......look at how they are about cheerleading, nuts too, not so much in any of the blue states, if you will. It is a southern thing to exploit your daughter. And they have no shame about it either....
