#LetsBlogOff - I am Ultimate Grand Supreme!

I've never been good at following the Let's Blog Off rules.

Let's Blog Off is a bi-monthly event where bloggers from all over tackle an important and earth-shaking question with the ferocity only fellow bloggerati could understand. Actually anyone could do it. In fact, you should! Head over to the site and join in the fun.

This week's question: Guilty Pleasures: what's your favorite show on television?

Now I wanted to choose Color Splash with good ole David Bromstad....

But then I figured that since walking around shirtless never helped David design a good space meant that me doing the same thing wouldn't help out a Let's Blog Off post. 

So what do I like on television? Shock and awe, mainly... in other words, Toddlers and Tiaras.

No where on television can you see this...

... and then the endless stream of wonky pageant parents.

Any parent who will subject their child to this level of judgement based solely on appearance and gate without totally selling out and getting that extra mortgage on the house should be strung up by the rhinestone headbands they force on those babies. 


I see nothing wrong with kids and pageants... In fact, being in the South(where most of Toddlers and Tiaras is filmed) pageants were always an entertaining event. My little sister was in pageants. Fortunately, my parents weren't crazy and didn't spend on dresses the way most families spend on automobiles.

The show is classic though. I do little more than laugh at the parents and then squee when Eden Wood wins again. She's the Tiger Woods of the pageant world. 

Fortunately, there are still spray tans available in Mississippi and another season of Toddlers and Tiaras starts up June 15 at 10/9c. 

You will now go to the other Let's Blog Off post and scoff at their silly shows... Write a post of your own! Think about it... there's no way it's as bad as a 30 year-old sports nut watching little kids in a pageant. 


  1. Don't even act like you don't watch it to get tips on how to match glitter to sequins to your makeup.

  2. Madame- Oh well... I'm busted.

    (and on the first comment, too!?)

  3. That looks like the perfect show for yelling at the tv screaming, "Are you kidding me!"

    My kids would love it!

  4. James- "Are you kidding me" comes out of my mouth on multiple occasions while watching... it's pretty outrageous.

  5. I KNEW this was the show that you were going to blog about!One night I might have to break down and watch it! Maybe not!

  6. I don't believe I could watch the toddler beauty shows. It reminds me too much of that little girl who was murdered some years back.

  7. Brenda- Eh give it a shot... you'll get a good dose of how normal you are!

    Joseph- I think every reality show has a certain "ugly underbelly" that has to be either addressed or looked over. This show focuses mainly on the outrageous and outlandish and isn't meant to be taken too seriously.

  8. I knew you received your fashion tips from somewhere.

  9. egr- I will take that as a compliment. Ha!

  10. This looks like a great show to watch for entertainment, thanks for the recommendation. I actually never heard of it before now.

  11. Watched it once...those parents take me over the edge...I'm not a perfect parent...but whatever happened to letting your kids just be kids...I often think to myself all the pressure they are putting on them to be perfect, but do not hold the same standards for themselves...know what I mean??? But in the end...it is a great way to get frustration out and yell at the tv, instead of my kids! :)

  12. Annalisa- Entertainment only... don't use it as a parenting class.

    Lead- You mean why are all the pageant parents bigger than the stage itself? That's a fine question, my friend.

  13. OF COURSE you're Ultimate Grand Supreme..

  14. Jerod- Would you expect anything less?!
