'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!"

There should be laws against these ugly fat mothers who abuse their kids this way.

These mothers are so disgusting.

WOW! Things like this should be criminal! I know it is cliche, but these mom's have to be living this for themselves through the children. This is SO FREAKING TWISTED! How can they not understand how sad this is. Wendy, let your kid be a kid. You are injuring your kid more than any parent I know. The mental abuse that this is, is far worse than a kid playing sports and possibly getting an injury. If you play sports, you may get injured...These pageant moms are, without a doubt, injuring their children. I am so sad for you and your child.

Wendy, please get yourself to the nearest hospital. You are a very, very sick woman.

It's sort of like saying "my son killed a guy last night, but I took him to church today, so he's OK."

There's a problem here    

These poor children are a pedophile's banquet. It's a wonder that mother didn't let the judges feel her baby breasts for a few extra points. These woman who obviously feel they have failed in their own lives pimp their children out on the pageant circuit. This is beyond ridiculous, this is the precursor to kiddie porn. I'm sure if a few child rapists are questioned, they've been avid fans of these shows. That woman is disgusting, sexualizing that poor child like that's all the child is worth is her body. Yeah, you take her to church alright.

These are the mothers who grew up starving for attention, and are now living through thier daughters, and no offense, but these kid may be cute while little, but look at the mothers- eventually they will gorw up to look like them too! What a huge dissapointment- to have these girls gorw up thinking they are going to be beauitful, and look how they will end up.

A pedophiles dream-come-true. They (TLC) are just sitting back cashing in on child exploitation as the pervs are firmly planted in front of the idiot box chokin' their chickens. This crap HAS to get taken off of the airwaves!!

Well Pedomom, if a child gets hurt during sports it can be fixed and healed in no time. But what you are doing to your BABY can have long lasting effects that may never heal. Wearing a tiara on your head says it all. This is about you, no wonder you could care less what is right and wrong for your child. Did your mother do the same to you?

Just FYI: I just remembered that TMZ and / or Toofab had advertisements for "Toddlers and Tiaras" on their sites and video players just a few weeks ago.

Sports, arts and music all help develop positive traits in children.

All these pageants teach is how to be a whining brat, as most of the parents are. Give me my child playing sports and getting hurt any day over being in these pagents dressed as a hooker.

I seriously don't understand who watches all this crap. Probably the same loosers who watch all the 'wives of' shows or Jersey Shores.

this is awful!!! ... All these kids are going to be future 16 and pregnant stars because there moms say its ok to wear make-up and sexy clothes when your 3 or 4 years old... or they are going to have serious self image issues cuz they think they have to have perfect teeth and eylashes or whatever to be pretty... TODDLERS AND TIARAS SHOULD BE TAKEN OFF TV FOR PROMOTING THIS CRAP!!!
