I assumed this was a one-time thing also. I sort of hope it is. I'm not sure I can resist it because I'm addicted to Toddlers and Tiaras and this is what all those girls will be like in 30+ years.
I agree that most of these women looked rough. I'm older than some of them, and I think I look better and looking good is not really that huge of a priority. All that trying to look younger just makes women look older.
That one really crazy chick who was blaming her craziness on menopausal hormones, the one sitting in front of the mirror talking to herself, didn't she say she was in her early 40s? That seems very early to be having that level of symptoms. I think she's just straight-up bat shit crazy.
These women should be ashamed of their behavior. Even if this show is semi-scripted, they should still be ashamed.
I think MamaMcKay summed it up the best when she said "in 20 years she's going to be going from man to man, demanding that they all tell her that she's the most beautiful and the most special."
I did too and missed the entire pageant. Can someone please recap the ending. Thanks so much in advance.
