'Toddlers & Tiaras' Mother

Lashes Out Over 'Hooker' Insult --

Blame the Mom, Not the Girl

12/22/2011 2:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Paisley Dickey
The mother of "Toddlers & Tiaras" star Paisley Dickey is firing back after 5-year-old Isabella Barrett accused her daughter of dressing like a "hooker" -- claiming Isabella's mom is to blame for filling the girl's head with garbage.

Wendy Dickey tells TMZ, "No blame is to this sweet little girl [Isabella], not her fault. She's just listening to her mom!"

Wendy's referring to a video TMZ posted this afternoon, in which a freshly spray-tanned Isabella (right) says, "Last time I was here, Paisley was trying to copy me ... but MY mom doesn't dress me up as a hooker" ... a jab at Paisley's recent "Pretty Woman" costume (left).

But Wendy's unfazed -- telling us, "I am used to this kind of behavior now from jealous moms. Doesn't even bother me anymore ... This is Isabella's mom's way of trying to get attention for her daughter."

You don't say!

The mothers are playing with their little girls like they were dolls, not real people, and then competing who dressed up their doll the best. They are completely immature and irresponsible, and where are the fathers? Online watching child porn? Those pageants should indeed be illegal. The children are bereaved of a normal childhood and of a normal, caring mother, and exposed to a dangerous world.

revolting! these children are hurried to act and think as adults at the time that they should be enjoying their innocence. later on, they'll grow as dysfunctional as celebs like lindsay lohan and britney spears. rescue these poor children.

These children are going to grow up with SERIOUS issues. Their mothers should be so proud. I refuse to watch this show on principle. Mothers using their kids as their own personal Barbie dolls for the sake of entertainment. Sickens me.

One little girl on the show says she wants to be Gymnastics Olympian, Mom says gymnastics were making her too muscular and she wasn't fitting into her dresses right so she made her daughter "take a break" from gymnastics to focus on the pageants. All such a waste of money. The winner title should be called 'Grand Supreme Spoiled Brat' because 99% of them behave terribly.

Where is Child Protective Services when you need them. All the mothers (and dumb fathers) need to have these children taken away from them.

Leader of the ignorant masses    

Are you really so desperate to post something on your site you resort to giving attention to this? None of them are stars. This stuff is just disgusting. If anyone wants to see a small child dressed like a hooker there is something wrong with that person and anyone who willingly presents the child that way.

TMZ you take a stand to promote homosexuality. You also take a stand with anything related to Jewish people. So take a stand against people parading small children around like sex symbols and refuse to post anything associated with it. You control what is posted on this site. And no one really cares about this stuff anyways except mothers who try to live out their failed dreams through their kids and perverts looking for a legal way to drool over babies.

This is another show that needs to be cancelled. The behavior on this show is getting worse and it's all stemming from the actions of the mothers and the toddlers doing and saying what they hear their mothers say.
