Retouching Child Beauty Pageant Photos


There’s another child pageant show: Little Miss Perfect. On last night’s episode, one loathsome mom defended pageants, saying, “I guess maybe you would think we were doing something wrong if you had an ugly child.”

Tina is the mother of 8-year-old Ashley, and she’ll stop at nothing for perfection-when it comes to her daughter’s appearance, not her own, natch. When they go to the photo studio to have her daughter’s pageant entry photos taken, she informs the photog that she doesn’t want them too retouched, just “naturally retouched.” I can’t tell if that’s oxymoron-ic or just moronic.

Speaking of moronic, here’s a bonus clip of a different pageant mom from the same show.
