'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!"

Disgusted mother    

Mothers who make sex objects out of baby girls, even though the children are too young to know the cir****tances, are sick. It is bad enough that males have the notion that females are only bodies, we continue to have stupid mothers who project the same attitude to their daughters. Women are just as intelligent as men and should learn to appreciate that fact. I resent Wendy ****ey putting herself in the same category as intelligent mothers. Her red-neck mentality is her's and is limited to women who have little ambition and low self-esteme. Gone are the days when women are limited in their life choices. Even in the days of Jane Austin there were women who valued their minds. But I suppose Wendy ****ey never heard of Jane
Austin or Elizabeth Blackwell or other women of their caliber.

No one should defend the pagent world. It gives young people, both boys and girls, a distorted idea of their self-worth. As adults we can differentiate between good and bad influences but young people cannot. That is why we have the sex and bathroom humor that we see on television and in the movies that passes for comedy. These disguesting shows get worse by the season. Since intelligent people do not waste their time watching this trash they are unaware of the sponsers. It would be helpful if there was a site that posted sponsors of trash tv so we could express our disguest with our pocketbooks.

Give that girl and her mom a break. The kid obviously has Down's Syndrome, or is destined for 16 and Pregnant and a job as a fry cook at Wendy's. She still won't know what a prostitute is when she's 18.

This is child pornography no matter how you slice it, exploiting children in such a manner is criminal. Why was this even necessarily to create controversy, should be some legal backlash instead of focusing on dumb fatass Chaz Bono that mother's group might want to focus on these kids being exploited

This says it all: "at least I'm not forcing them into sports". That is right - at least she is not encouraging her daughter to develop fitness and abilities that could help her be a healthy person. There should be a system to license people before they are allowed to breed.

It just pisses me off what these mothers put their children through. Let them be kids.. spray tans & fake teeth? C'mon now!! They just want these kids to be something they never were! Sick! Sick! Sick!

The words "Baby" and "Hooker" should never go together in any sentence! This is sad. Although they are getting a lot of attention and ratings which is really what any show wants. Ratings by any means necessary. I know the little girl has no idea what she is wearing but what till someone explains she is dressed like a hooker. Then she can ask her Mom what a hooker is. That should be an interesting conversation.

What a lunatic. Seriously?! What kind of person thinks this is okay, on any level, ever?

What harm is it doing? You're sexualizing your 3-year-old. What harm is that NOT doing? Let your baby be a baby. Jeez.

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."
*******************
I seriously doubt that a real "christian" (as opposed to people who just go to church on Sunday and call it good for the rest of the week) would think it was OK to dress up a 3 year old like a prostitute.

As far as "not hurting" the kid....that remains to be seen. If I was Wendy's husband (is she married?) or the girl's father, I'd be furious and would not allow that woman to corrupt my daughter any more.

Yeah, sports is a bad bad thing compared to that. How will she look like such a nice hooker if she's fat?
