Eden Wood Takes Her Act To Fashion Week



Nothing like encouraging a six year old to act like a stripper in front of a beer drinking crowd. That is exactly what happened though at Fashion Week where Eden Wood from Toddler & Tiaras did her stripper act for Cicciabella's shoe show. I have watched Toddlers & Tiaras but always because of the crazy parents. I don't really agree with what they do, and I think it is wrong to sexually exploit young children which is what they are doing. As bad as Toddlers & Tiaras is, what this company did at Fashion Week was even worse. Who hires a kid to act like a stripper on the runway of Fashion Week? How did they even get permission to be an official show knowing there was this going on?

I'm not sure posting pics of the prostitot here is helping. Just sayin'.

^^^Agreed.

Rita said...

Never watched the show, I think reports on what happens during the show, and the always vacant look of the over-make-uped very young girls is disgusting and disturbing me enough to turn me off ever watching these shows.

Still don't understand how parents like these get away with so much abuse. These girls will never have a childhood where they could either be given the choice to play with a doll, or be a tomboy and run around like crazy. Truly makes me sad.

I'm going to do a serious, scientific study of girls who have been on this show, or in the pageant life at a young age to see exactly what kind of damage is done to these girls. Then I'm going to raise all kinds of hell.

Gross and inappropriate

Jesus!

Cathy said...

Honestly, as much as it disgusts me, I'm kind of glad that this is getting attention... if just one child welfare worker reads about it, then maybe that kid could get a shot at a normal life (with different parents).

parissucksliterally said...

disgusting.

SusanB said...

Why child welfare people aren't involved is a mystery to me.

ll0273 said...

You're obviously not upset or offended enough to stop watching and giving them ratings, though.

If everyone who was disgusted by this stuff would stop watching, it would eventually be taken off the air. This is the one instance in which boycotting something actually works. No ratings=no sponsors=no show.

I don't know, she looks a little heavy. With some strategic lipo and cosmetic surgery, she could easily look 4 or 5 again.

Rita said...

@ll0273 - I think ratings are being driven by pedophiles or parents wanting to break their girls into the beauty pageant business. Can not imagine someone with an ounce of self-respect watching that show.

I think this chick was in my grade school. We had a beauty queen girl in my middle school classes up through high school. She had been there since kindergarten, I moved there about 5th grade.

She was taught to be a beyotch to everyone and then wondered why no one liked her. All hell broke loose when a new pagent girl came in about the 9th grade.


She was never nice to me, but I honestly felt sorry for her. She really looked washed up at that point, as if her life was over. She dropped out and I dont know what happened to her. -- I need to ask around FB. -- She had so much pressure on her. It was actually sad.

However, I can imagine that she is now just like her mom prodding on her little one, if she has one. But to be even better than she was...

This is horrible.

linnea said...

I really wish you would have put a Not Safe For Life disclaimer on this.

And, for those of you who have heard of this internet meme - isnt that Pedo Bear in her back pocket? WTF?

Fawn Neun said...

Why are you watching (and indirectly supporting) a show that makes money by showing parents abusing their children?

Because their crazy parents make you feel better about yourself?

linnea said...

Just out of curiosity - are you really supporting a show by watching it if you are not a Nielsen family? There is now way to measure what I chose to watch or not watch, so my choices arent really going to matter at all.

That said, no I dont watch this show...

linnea said...

now=no

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

I thought you were j/k about the pedo bear, linnea.

Wow.

I watched a couple of episodes just to see what all the buzz was about, and I can't stand it. What a creepy 'ole mess it is.

RocketQueen said...

lol @ ms snarky!

It never ceases to amaze me that these mothers don't seem to realize they're basically training these women with stripper skills and very little else.

linnea said...

No, unfortunately I was not joking. They post that bear everytime there is a clip or picture from Toddlers and Tiaras over at Gawker.

SusanB said...

I didn't know what Pedobear was so I googled it. Good God.

I've never watched this show, but I've seen a lot about it on-line and on cable news. So I don't feel like I'm supporting it.

Feisty said...

Ms. Snarky, you made me laugh, thanks. It counteracted the vomit that was rising.

bluebonnetmom said...

@ Ms Snarky - you made me choke on my drink I laughed so hard. That was greatness girl. : ) So glad I don't watch this show. Her Mom is studying Dina Lohan's Motherhood Manual as I type.

selenakyle said...

She's probably already got crotch infections of some kind--bladder, urinary, yeast, etc. Which, BTW, I recall reading JonBenet Ramsey was also riddled with...

SICK and very, very sad.

selenakyle said...

Fuck if I watch this shit. Seriously. BAN it.

ChasingHeaven said...

I watch this show. I watch every episode. I do it though for the same reasons I watch every trainwreck show. I'm COMPLETELY FASCINATED by human behavior. I simply MUST know what drives parents to behave the way they do, what drives these children to perform like this, what are the ramifications of a lifestyle like this, etc. etc. The same reason I'm addicted to learning about the truth of what is really going on in a celebrity lifestyle. I'm completely fascinated by behaviors that are outside of the "norm" of what we know. I can't help myself.

Rita said...

Remember when about 15 years ago when Jerry Springer started playing during the daytime on TV?

Remember how we made fun of these people having kids left and right and fighting each other because of cheating, jealousy and whatever else silly the show could get away with showing?

Remember how we thought that was funny and so far away from our day-to-day reality? Remember when we thought that the people that go on the Jerry Springer and the Maury show were told to behave like they're a caricature and a farce of real and civilized human everyday life?

Look around you, 15 years later, it is now quite common for people on the street, in schools, at work to behave in the same caricature, farce-like sort, that we first made fun of on the Jerry Springer show.

The more you watch these shows, the more it becomes ordinary, the more your shock or outrageous meter gets low.

Me said...

as stupid as the pageant stuff is. because they are in their own little world (no one goes to those shows, have you noticed??) it doesn't bother me so much. look like a hooker in front of your family and the families of 15 other girls w/ fake teeth, knock yourself out.

but when they start giving the kids names out on tv and placing their pix on the covers of magazines its just really "yucky".

i get the impression that her mom is thinking she's the next shirley temple. "extreme child star".

way worse is "dance moms". i can't watch that one anymore. the instructor and the mothers of the kids verbally insult each other in front of the kids and have hit each other, threatened each other and say horrible things about the other dancers (they are 10 & under) to their own children. and the audience is full, so lots of folks see these kids "dancing" to songs that are much too old for them to be performing too. and heir costumes are so skimpy they got eliminated from one competition because of it.

i honestly thought it was a fake show until one time where a bunch of the little girls ended up in tears after one mom grabbed another one and screamed in her face. then she left w/o her giant suitcase (but not w/o her kids trophys!).

Alicia said...

Jesus H. Crimmeny..this just made me sick to my stomach :(

brendalove@gmail.com said...

I'm not as outraged by the stripper angle as much as I am outraged that this child is going to a tanning bed.

M said...

When she's sixteen years old, she can meet and then marry (with her parents permission) an actor who is in his fifties...

Lelaina Pierce said...

Disgusting. The parents on this show make me stabby.

Chrissy Buns said...

this little girls mom was always horrendous and delusional, and the little girl herself is annoying as heck. geesh.

candyperfumegirl_14 said...

I couldn't have been at Fashion Week aand seen this child. I would had grab a sheet or towel to cover her; drag her off somewhere safe and get ready for her mother to beat me up.

Audrey said...

It bothers me that grown men and women judge these kids in pageants all the time and find this stuff perfectly ok.

MadLyb said...

I saw something at the store today on a tabloid with this little tot's picture on it that said, 'Have we gone too far?' or something like that, and I was like, DUH??? But hey, at least the tv execs finally woke up and decided to stop neglecting the pedophile demographic. This is where my head explodes for the 20th time today.

Selock said...

Horrible. Also, her name has a certain grim double entendre quality, given her "profession"...no? WTF?
