'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!

To have a beauty pagent for young children in this way may not be criminal but it's morally bankrupt! These mothers should lose their kids along with the fathers that condone it! Soon enough these young women will be judged on physical beauty rightly or wrongly why start the process in the years kids shoulkd be having fun. This is the female version of sports fathers who work their kids at sports years before they should stop making it fun!

So let me get this right. We're suppose to believe that a tmz camera man was at some random tanning salon and recognized a 5yr old from a reality tv show? Yes the girl was obviously coached and yes TMZ was part of it. Where was her mother while her 5year old ran up to a total stranger with a camera that knew her child name? (Off to the side standing with the camera man) At least once a week the TMZ camera men call a celebrity by the wrong name and now all of a sudden they have a camera man who can spot a none celebrity 5 year old? Really, **** off and stop insulting us with bull****.

This whole thing is an abomination and should be illegal. Who but a pedophile wants to see super sexualized little girls? This is the equivalent of the sports illustrated simsuit edition for diddlers.

Do we need to watch Pretty Woman again to see what Julia Robert's hooker costume looked like in the beginning of the movie? Yep, the same thing.

ALL of these mothers should be ashamed of themselves for putting their young daughters through this kind of stuff!!! These babies are WAY too young for spray tans, make up, and the craziness of beauty pageants! This is a form of abuse!

dalia simmons: Any adult who calls a five year old ugly inside and out has some serious self esteem problems of your own. Take a look inside of yourself and work on why you feel its appropriate to insult a 5 year old. You sweetie have major issues. I suggest you seek therapy ASAP

This has nothing to do with jealousy. You dressed your child up as a sex object, and for that you need a bytch slap. Of course it doesn't bother you, because you are too stupid to understand that you are a bad mother, and too selfish to care that you are selling out your child for fame.

And the parents are so obliging in keeping the Pedos interested. Keep 'em coming back!

There is much to be learned from "The Learning Channel"

I'm sorry but I feel that any mom who pushes a child to do this is sick in the head. They are just trying to live through their daughters. They dress them up to look like hookers and it's no wonder we have pediphiles running all over the place. They are parading the little girls around like putting candy in front of a child.

and why is TMZ using this as a story, they are little kids, and should not be reporting the stupidity of parents that exploit their kids
