Toddlers and Tiaras Mom Speaks Out Against TLC

June 16, 2012 03:37 PM by Stephanie Gustafson

Lately, there’s been a number of pageant mothers complaining about the portrayal of their daughters on TLC’s hit reality series Toddlers and Tiaras. The latest to join the list is Hope Campbell, mother of Emma Campbell.  What nasty things did Hope have to say about TLC? Keep reading to find out!

Hope Campbell is not happy about how she and her daughter Emma have been portrayed on the reality show Toddlers and Tiaras. Emma was featured on Toddlers and Tiaras around the end of May. The little pageant diva ended up on the show at the last minute after another participant dropped out. Momager Hope Campbell regrets this decision now, for after a “draining” experience that included a bugged home and long interviews, she feels that her family was misrepresented.

Hope Campbell was especially bothered by the inclusion of a conversation that she alleges was “spliced” together. Those who watched the Toddlers and Tiaras episode may recall a scene in which Hope mentions Marilyn Monroe’s status as a sex symbol…and then proceeds to compare her daughter to the 50s star. In a recent interview, Hope said that her original statement was cut and pasted together to have a completely different meaning. What she meant to say was, the downfall of having her daughter dress like Marilyn Monroe is that Monroe is perceived as a sex symbol.

Perhaps TLC failed to do Hope Campbell and her daughter justice, but the question still remains: if Marilyn Monroe is such a sex symbol, why would you have your 3-year-old daughter dress like her at all?

    If they misrepresented her that is bull shit. the show from what i see is about parents living through the children trying to gain star dom and give their kids a chance. i have seem a family that hired a “body guard” and even bought a “tour bus” i like it i do not think they are being “sexualized and i do not base what others think he they see anything then young girls having fun then they are the ones with serious issues.

    I don’t have to live through my children because I do have my own life. I’m not overweight. I have my own titles and successes. If one family hired a bodyguard, its because of the crazy people who watch the show and then get on message boards and make comments like ” someone’s going to end up taking that child.” I know because they did it to me. It’s sad that some people, the negative viewers, can take something fun and innocent and make it so nasty.

    WHAT IS IT WITH THE PARENTS ON TODDLERS & TIARAS? DON’T THEY KNOW ANY DISCIPLINE AT ALL? MOST OF THE LITTLE GIRLS ARE TOTALLY LACKING IN DISCIPLINE & MANNERS. TEACH THESE KIDS SOME RESPECT & MANNERS, IT IS NOT ENOUGH JUST TO BE PRETTY. THE KIDS ARE MOSTLY BRATS!
