'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!"

Why is she and the network not being arrested for promoting prostitution???????
This is so out of hand! and the person above that said that we are all jumping to conclusions like Nancy Grace, are you a pedifile???? I am so sad how the TV station agrees to promote this kind of content. Where are the TV sensors??? You know the guys in the suites???
I am not a crazy prude but this is to much!

I'm sure there are more harmful things people do to their kids than dress them up like a hooker. But that doesn't mean you should dress your kid up like a hooker, lady.

The whole pageant thing is child abuse IMO and this just proves it. The mother is out of her freakin' mind if she thinks this ok!

TLC exploits families and those with disabilities. They disgust me and I refuse to watch them. TLC specializes in exploiteing mental cases in one way or another. The 'parents' of the Tiara kids are MAJORLY AND CRITICALLY MENTALLY ILL. Who else does TLC like to exploiate for ratings?? Only the ones who are tooo defective to realize that their being used only for ratings, while the rest of the country watches, as if their watching train wrecks, or looking through the bars of a zoo. Name some other shows on TLC and you'll start to get the picture here..

They are both the same girl, if anyone did not notice. You can tell by the girls' expression in the first picture that she is not comfortable or happy. The second picture she has a completely different demeanor and confidence about herself. That is how a 3 year old should look!! And then people wonder why there are sooo many pedophiles and child molesters. A 3 year old does not know better; as a parent you should be setting a good example for her, not making her dress like a prostitute. Even if it's Halloween, that is inappropriate.

Everyone is upset about the picture? Her name is Paisley for god's sake. Daddy issues and a future in porn are just about a lock.

Riiiiight. Instead, you are forcing your five year old toddler to dress like an adult woman and prance around on a stage to be judged. So much healthier.

I think TLC also has a show* about some malcontent 'TATOO ARTISTS' who want to run a business.

If TLC was Savvy, they could combine some of those shows into one, and make themselves Emmy contenders!

ummmm, our 19 CHILDREN AND COUNTING all got TATOOS all over their little bods, all except for the SHORT PEOPLE who we put to sleep by singing bible verses to instead..

Meanwhile the TIARA TODDLERS have all developed some kind of FREAKING EATING habits while their 'mothers' have STRANGE SEX and are HOARDING!! Their going to be counseled soon by THE LITTLE COUPLE. stay tuned.....

the sad thing about all of this is that These Little Girls will never have a childhood Like other children their Age that's Sad. The mother's are so Star Struck that their Child could be the next Superstar or Super model, Like the Reality show Dance Mom's the same thing Those children obviously don't have a child hood either.... Poor Children Being Exploited and the parents don't care

so disgusting this mother should be ashamed. she doesnt even deserve the honour of being called a mother. a child should be a child not some product that the parent has created for their own satisfaction. I refuse to watch this show. i hate seeing young girls in make up when they should be playing outside and getting messy. way to rob your child of her childhood. what a disgusting excuse for a mom.
