'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!"

Your Mom    

Might as well just drop her off at a child sex offenders house and pick her up when ya feel like it... Ya dressing lil girls like a hooker isn't harmless... Just think of how many perverts out there who are getting a kick out of it. How can you clap and cheer for your daughter as walks down the runway looking like a hooker? How proud you must be? She could have picked a different outfit Julie Roberts wore in the movie.... (and hopefully not the scene when all she wears is a tie)

I know somewhere in this mom's head there has to be an active brain cell floating around. The only trouble is finding it. She doesn't know why people are focusing on pageant moms? You dressed your 3 year old child like a hooker on a nationally televised show! This can only mean one of two things 1. she is looking for her 15 minutes, or 2. pure authentic stupidity. If you know of any other reason please inform me.

Not forcing them into sports and not injuring them....is she serious! You're forcing her to be involved in Toddler and Tiara and don't say you're not. It's not any different than kids doing sports. And for injury, you're injuring her by her thinking she's the prettiest, the best and everyone is beneath her. She'll grow up thinking she's better than everyone else and have very few friends, if any. So, don't act like it's all good.

Sorry, but this is so sick.... the entire show is shameful. These little girls are being exploited and in my opinion abused. Canno*****ch it at all after one episode. What is the matter with these people and what is the matter with the network that carries it. Disgusting.

Why not just put her in the "classy" outfit from the beginning, it's adorable! The trashy outfit was not even necessary.

These are seriously sick and twisted mothers who obviously did not get enough attention from their daddy's growing up, so now they want to make sure that their daughters get attention from pedophiles.

Grow up ladies. Your own short comings should not be foisted off on your kids.

Why doesn't she just put the child in "black-face" I mean it's just a costume right? No real harm there or what it displays or portrays? She really believes that if the child doesn't understand the context of things then it is perfectly fine. Wendy ****ey's arguments are completely ridiculous.

Look at her daughter.. she has bags under her eyes from lack of sleep and or stress... no you are not forcing your child to do sports and get hurt you are forcing her to be put in a stressful situation to fullfill your own lost hopes and dreams you had for your own life, and it's causing EMOTIONAL damage!

This show is a disgrace and should be taken off the air. People who insist their little girls be in shows like this are only doing it because mom never made it big. The kids on this program are spoiled brats.

@Bob: " These girls should be competing at least as the sonogram level. I will soon be submitting my pitch for "Fetuses and Festivities" to TLC."

I thought you were serious until that final sentence gave your post away. then I burst out laughing.

we were switching channels, and came upon this...i could hardly believe whatthese mothers are doing to these little kids......ican't say that it's the kids fault, but mom get a grip, why would you want to dress your kid up like a hooker, as a matter of fact why would you even want to put your kid through this stuff.....it's too bad we can't fast forward about 20 years and see what these kids really grew up to be....they certainly aren't going to be normal, what would possess a mother, any mother thinking that a little kid wants to go do all this stuff.....aside from that your probably getting every pedofile and child molestor really revved up....mothers you need to get some sort of mental help, cause there is definately something missing upstairs....sorry, but you've created little monsters not children
