'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." You may not be forcing your child into sports are you are forcing them into doing these beauty pageants and not letting her be a 3 year old girl. When she is older I would not be surprised if she resented you but you got on TV which is all you care about right.

I guess emotional abuse is beyond her vocabulary. Good mother's don't dress a 3 girl old as a slut and parade her around on national TV!!!! CPS needs to step in ASAP

This woman needs to have her daughter taken away, and she should be sterilized.

When her daughter turns 14 will she teach her daughter how to give a bj too? Dressing her up as a hooker is harmless? Does she really expect people to go "awww, how cute!!!" Wendy has some disturbing role models.

I have a feeling this 3 year old will end up on "16 and Pregnant". Just because you gave birth, doesn't make you a parent.

I don't mean to go on a rant.............
You have got to be kidding me! TLC should align itself with Vivid Entertainment as they are clearly making porn for pedophiles. I am so sickened. I think the TLC network is worse than the damaged parents that are doing this to their Kids. BTW, I am a parent of a young child so thi*****s too close to home.

You know what lady? You're just wrong wrong wrong! And unfortunately, to stupid to do a 180 and apologize. Unfortunately, you could learn alot from Soulja Boy (and that's a very sad thing)!

Wow, talk about delusion. Instead of forcing your kid into sports, you forced them into pageantry. You're forcing your child to to be "perfect" by either your standards or that of the pageant and the way you go about it is pretty despicable. Your child is 3 years old, there's no reason at all to dress her like a hooker (albeit a fictitious one) and then NOT tell her that you just did. Your child shouldn't have to suffer for your idiocy. BTW, the emotional scars shes bound to have because of this will run much deeper than any youth league sports injury.

Um .. yeah right, " MOM " ! It's a shame that you're using your daughter to fulfill a void that you were empty upon in your childhood, but exposing her as a total whore for the world to see .. that's just WRONG ! So yeah, .. sit there and attempt to say all you want .. but . um . Toddlers don't wear hooker boots in swimwear. ******* ho !
