Shame!

Have you seen the commercials on TLC for the reality show Toddlers & Tiaras? I'd post it here, but it actually makes me sick to my stomach. It's about moms and their Jon Benet-style kids. The commercial shows them giving their little girls spray tans, putting fake eyelashes on them, and other horrific things. I'm sure TLC thinks that they're exposing these mothers for the nutjobs they are, but I think that they are in fact validating them. I find it interesting that there is no information about this show on the TLC Web site. Maybe they're disgusted with themselves.

(Okay, stepping down off of my soapbox now.)

I've seen the ads for this show and they are appalling. I can't even watch them anymore. I have to either turn the station or mute it. Disgusting. Aunt T

I saw a show/doc like this a few years ago on TV. It was very disturbing.
