That "go-go juice" stuff blew my mind--laced with Red Bull?? Can you even give a kid under 10 Red Bull? That's just begging for a host of developmental problems down the line. Judging from Anderson's reaction and the audience member who stood up to say she couldn't stop drinking the go-go juice, that seemed like some serious shit.
I felt bad for L'il Hyper Hoochie Boo-Boo, or whatever she called herself
Yeah, there was nothing cute about her or her situation, that was just a tragedy in the making. In the footage of her without makeup, she looked absolutely ill (pale, lifeless, overweight, nutrient-deficient). If her mother is anything to judge by, her situation is hopeless. The idea that she just "invented" the "L'il Hyper Hoochie Boo-Boo" stuff like she's just a kid with moxie was the usual nonsense propagated by awful parents. Anderson should have had a few doctors or psychologists on to talk about what kids really pick up from their parents.
Having the husbands interviewed about their jobs, income, education level...and their thoughts on the pageant business would make a good show, Mr. Cooper.
Something tells me the dads are as clueless as the moms and probably passively participate in allowing their wives these "hobbies" because they have very little to do with their wives in general.
They didn't even do what they promised
No, they didn't. Those moms should have been put through a veritable car wash of prepping just like the kids, not to mention calorie control for a week or so prior! At the very least, the moms (using it) should have been forced to have only go-go juice for the 24-hour period.
The sleep deprivation, drilling the awful routines, constant sugar and shitty food as rewards for getting through the pageants seemed like a how-to guide for developing Type-2 diabetes.
Yesterday's show was really a hot mess. It was absolutely clear to me that the dealers of the memorabilia, or the guys who just collected--and spent their time trying to form relationships with serial killers--were living vicariously through the murderers. There was no empathy, again and again, and Anderson seemed to think that if he asked every 5 or 10 minutes, that it would surely kick in. Clearly there was no normal emotion or understanding displayed by these guys. Add to that the fascination and unconscious grinning every time a murderer or crime was brought up, and you have many of the hallmarks of sociopathy. The son/brother who spoke toward the end did an excellent job of calling those guys out. I'm not sure why he wasn't up on stage; he was fielding questions better and making more cogent points than Anderson.
