Guilty Pleasure

My guilty pleasure, and the trainwreck I can't stop watching, is Toddlers and Tiaras. I really do not get what drives these women to go get their four year old daughters a spray tan, highlights, a hair piece, and a $2000 dress, hop them up on pixie sticks and red bull and let them loose on stage. But it fascinates me.

What makes them want their daughters to dress like drag queens? A lot of the moms talk about the daughter "getting ahead" through the pageants. I suspect that they might get further ahead if they put the money towards a college fund instead of towards flippers and fake nails, but that would make for lousy TV.

Crazy women of America, I salute you.
