Vanessa Williams

RIPPED By 'Tiaras' Mom

Over Abortion

5/2/2012 4:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Those in glass houses shouldn't throw stones ... especially when that house is an abortion clinic ... so says a "Toddlers & Tiaras" mom who's PISSED Vanessa Williams went off about pageant parents in a recent interview.

FYI -- Williams recently appeared on "Anderson" and when asked about the child pageant world said, "When the child is screaming and saying, ‘I don’t want to do this. I don’t feel like doing it.’ When they are using special juice to get them hyped ... that’s not my world and I would never have my kids do that.”

The comments didn't fly with "Tiaras" star  Wendy Dickey -- aka Paisley's mom -- who says she was personally offended ... and lashed back:

"Posing nude and having an abortion is 'not my world' and I would never have my kids do that ... so easy on the judging Vanessa!"

Dickey is clearly referring to the revelations Williams makes in her new book -- in which she admits she got an abortion in high school ... and explains how she appeared in Penthouse.

We reached out to Williams ... but so far, no response.

These mothers need to get a life of their own and let their kids be kids, or else they will most likely end up posing nude and getting their own abortions.

why are celebs so insecure. this lady is doing this for one thing; publicity.

The middle aged woman in the U.S. are so dysfunctional and behind every kid doing weird things, there is a mom pushing them.

Not the same thing, Wendy Dicky!!! Vanessa was young, possibly niave and whatever she may have done, she did to herself. Not to her kids. She became famous off her own accomplishments, not her children. You cannot say the same.

Do these woman have husbands? They should give them half the attention they spend on their daughters. I feel bad for these poor kids, they get no childhood because their mothers stole it.

here's the diff--Vanessa Williams made those decisions for herself, for better or worse. the pageant mom is making her kid's decisions for her--for better or worse. Really can't compare the two, they're totally different.

My comment is towards Wendy: I sure hope you wouldn't have your kids posing nude and having abortions.

Pageant Mom's are mental head cases who are trying to live their childhood through their child, instead of just change their own life and make it better, they use their child and pressure them to do the things they wanted to do, or they manipulate their children into this sick pageant world.

Those mothers need medication and psychotherapy to deal with their own Mommy and Daddy issues and childhoods, what they are doing to their children is abusive plus puts them in danger of the sick predators out in this world.

Let the children just be normal kids, do normal things, go play with their friends, not perform, or flaunt the superficial and how these pageant mom's hypersexualize their children, is a huge red flag. They are catering to disgusting pedophiles, endangering their child, putting them at risk for being abducted.

Apples and oranges, making decisions for yourself and making decisions for your kids not the same. And yes, an abortion is a personal decision--strictly

Vanessa made her own decisions about her own body. Right or wrong she was the one in control of herself.

Paisley is not making any decisions for herself. Momma is. And like a pimp, Momma is drugging her kid with whatever will enhance her performance. Momma needs to rethink her attack.

Wendy Dickey -- aka Paisley's mom do you really think you're in a position to JUDGE Vanessa Williams? Leave Vanessa alone and focus on your own failures as a mother. BTW, LOVED your book Vanessa and Helen.

I agree with Vanessa ,what these woman are doing to their daughters parading them on a stage dressed like little whores cheering them on is sick I think its a form of child abuse .these mothers if you want to call them that have serious problems with their selves, they are babies being made up to look like entertaining hookers,Its wrong and it should be stopped not only by those screwball mothers but the perverts that put on these shows and what kind of people watch this stuff,the last thing I want to do is watch a little girl sing let me entertain you.seriously,go go juice.something is wrong here.

Wendy Dickey is so stupid is hard to fathom how stupid she really is. Vanessa made her own choices, Wendy Dickey daughter cannot.

I'm sure a lot of Vanessa's issues stemmed from the fact that she was abused and exploited as a child. We already know that Paisley is being exploited, and her lifestyle certainly puts her at risk for abuse. I'll be surprised if her story turns out any better...
