'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!

Some of these children will likely not make it to adulthood. Although they're nowhere near "childhood stars" - they're still being pimped out, coddled and trained to act as obnoxious as possible - in hopes of getting famous.

This is pathetic and child protective services should intervene. If adults like the Kardashian's want to make axxes out of themselves for profit and fame, then fine..

But using CHILDREN and grooming them to dress and act inappropriately to get attention is just abuse and wrong on SO many levels.

These women should NEVER have been allowed to have children. They're clearly too trashy, ignorant and irresponsible to be breeding.

TLC needs to pull the plug on this hideous show. It is an embarrassment to America... and again, those children will likely end up addicted to drugs and end up dead before 30.

This is sick.

This is abuse.

And this should NOT be applauded.

Shame on you, TLC.. and more importantly - shame on the mothers for exploiting their children.

The parents along with the producers of the contest & tv show should be arrested for EXPLOTING CHILDREN. These moms are living through their children, what an example of poor parenting. Every pedophile sits in front of the TV watching (Toddlers & Tiars)your child parade on stage like a young hooker. Why does a pedophile need to look on the internet for young children to ***!!!??? *ff to, then can jus*****ch Toddlers & Tiars.

what's sad is on the facebook page of the mother [Wendy ****ey], you have grown ups insulting the little girl that said this by saying she is not pretty. how low and classless can you get??? these people that are actually defending the mother for dressing her child up as a hooker are seriously delusional. all of them. you dressed your child up as a hooker and you have nerve to say other people are making the little girl do this for publicity??? this woman has issues. serious issues. she dressed her daughter up as a prostitute for publicity, to stand out on the show...hypocrite. they need to shut this show down and send all of these parents to parenting classes. it's disgusting.

This is just horrible. Jealousy has nothing to do with it. It is the perception that you give your daughter and other little girls. She is a child and the decisions that you make will affect her for a lifetime. You are her PROTECTOR..... using jealousy is a cop out! It's not right!!!!!!!!! Give me a break.....

Yes, this child is dressed as a hooker, however I don't think the child knows why she's dressed like that, but thinks it's okay to dress like that. This could put a danger to this child since we have so many sick predators who would LOVE this. Horrible mothers. All you guys think about is winning and forcing poor kids to do this. From what I saw... they don't seem to enjoy a bit of the pageant. Let your child be a child. And don't be surprise if your child become some whore in the future. That's your fault.

Because of this, I hate all pageants no matter what age.

None of these mothers deserve children. Turning your 5 year old into a catty baby bitch isn't very admirable.
Quit exploiting your kids and give them a chance at a normal childhood.

The parents of these pageant kids should all have the book thrown at them for child abuse and have them taken away from them and given to the first sane family member. They make me physically ill.

Ugh at first it was hysterical to watch the show on demand. The one where they kept feeding the kid sugar cubes when she edged on a tantrum was priceless but now it is just getting sad.
