Vanessa Williams

RIPPED By 'Tiaras' Mom

Over Abortion

EXCLUSIVE

0502_t&t_vanessa_williams_tmz
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.

I feel sorry for those poor children being made to perform like circus animals –it’s just cruel. Slathering make-up on a young child, ridiculous costumes, and parading them around like livestock is just horrid. I think the parents are trying to live out their fantasies through the kids. Sickos.
Vanessa made her choices and she has to live with them, but she made them – they were not forced upon her. The comments were not directed towards Wendy Dickey personally. Get over yourself you silly woman. Let your child enjoy her childhood. Poor kid will need therapy for years.

Vanessa Williams won't respond to camera hungry stage mothers of pageant kids. That world is too cut throat for young kids.

At least Vanessa was old enough to make sound decisions that was right for her... ...There is not enough reasons in the world for any mother to dress their daughter up likea prostitute and think that it's cute...not cute at all...it's sad and pathetic on the parents' part...These little girls do not have that luxury... their mothers want fame and are living it through their little girls...TV producers and executives of this particular show should be ashame of themselves.... In my opinion...someone on that show is a pedafile living through this show.... P.S. the mother of the little girl who dressed up as a prostitute....she hating on Vanessa because Playboy didn't want her ugly ass for phot shoot....We don't help from the media to create more pedifiles....

Vanessa's choices affected only HER. Wendy's choices are affecting the life-mentally, physically, and emotionally-of her child. She is doing FAR great damage.

So, is the tiara mom insinuating that Vanessa's mom made Vanessa have an abortion and pose nude in magazines?

What a dumb@$$! She was a young adult, not a minor child. Secondly, why doesn't Tiara Mom tell us some of the details about HER youth, as long ago as that may be.

monique    

first off, wendy dickey looks NOTHING like vanessa williams so PLEASE keep the clothes on, nudity and abortion (an adults decision) has nothing to do with pimping out your kids and living your pathetic life through their innocence, if the kid say's NO then don't PERIOD!

Whatever    

Wendy Dickey: Vanessa Williams does have daughters and she is not pimping them out on national tv to fulfill a dream she never got to do. Who cares if Vanessa Williams had an abortion and posed nude. Lots of women do both things and it's their own choice. Don't get butt hurt when someone calls you out for forcing your daughter to do something she probably doesn't even want to do.

There is a huge difference between an adult making adult decisions, and a parent making poor, exploitative choices for her child. I agree 100% with Vanessa.
