‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ Tot Dons ‘Pretty Woman’ Hooker Outfit

By Lesley Kennedy • MORE.com Reporter

Oh, just look at our little girl, honey! She’s growing up so fast, strutting her pint-size stuff up there on the stage in her itty bitty hooker outfit. Pass the hankie, dear. I’m just so, so very proud.

If you thought  every mother’s dream was to see her baby don fake boobs and butt pads to emulate Dolly Parton, as demonstrated last week on Toddlers & Tiaras, things are being taken up a notch. Well, actually, the show has reached a whole new low.

In an episode set to air tonight on the TLC reality show, 3-year-old Paisley performs dressed in a prostitute ensemble inspired by Julia Roberts’s streetwalker in Pretty Woman. Yep, thigh-high boots, teeny mini, wig and all.

Outraged? Join the club. More than 2,000 people have joined the Facebook group Take "Toddlers and Tiaras" off the Air!. And message boards across the Web are going crazy over the outfit.

We knew Vivian, Pretty Woman's hooker with a heart of gold, just wanted a fairy tale. But, sorry, no 3-year-old dreams of one day having sex for money. What will Toddlers & Tiaras deliver next week? We shudder at the thought.

What do you think? Has Toddlers & Tiaras gone too far? Should it be forced off the air? Or is it “just TV,” as one Facebook commenter writes, and everyone just needs to “get a grip?” Leave a comment below!
