'Toddlers and Tiaras' Returning for Third Season

toddlers tiaras tlcPrepare yourself for more pound-cake makeup, orange spray tans, fake hair and, oh yes, fake teeth, because TLC has renewed 'Toddlers and Tiaras' for a third season.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the unscripted reality series will return on June 2, though no word yet on how many episodes were ordered.

The show, which follows young girls as they compete in various beauty pageants, is a big ratings hit for TLC. Last summer's July premiere, for example, earned the show its highest ratings up until that point.

Meanwhile, there's more good news to report for TLC fans: The Hollywood Reporter also notes that 'Hoarders: Buried Alive,' about people who can't seem to get rid of anything from their house, will return for a second season, beginning Sundays this fall.

I think it is pretty pathetic for parents to subject their daughters to this sort of thing because it robs them of a "normal" childhood and puts too much pressure on the child. The parents who do this to their children should be horsewhipped!

When this "show" first came on I watched about 15 minutes of it and changed the channel. I think it's disgusting how these tiny little girls are being paraded around on a stage, made up to the hilt, costumed and used so their mothers can live vicariously through their children. This is, in my opinion, child abuse. Shame on these mothers and shame on TLC for continuing this "show."

Talk about putting lipstick on a ( baby) pig. This show is one of the lowest of lows there is on Television. Repugnant and truly exploitation of innocent children. The parents of these little girls bring out the ugliest of ugly and glam it up. This show is nothing more than child abuse in glitter and spray on tans.

The message being sent by this series- your looks are the most important attribute that you will ever have. Message not being sent is that the facade is NOT more important than what is inside a person. Nice to know that TV and pageants for toddlers are helping to cultivate a culture of self centered kids and the moms who live through their daughters (and sometimes sons). The show certainly does not present any indication that pagents teach kids what they really need to know to succeed in life- team work, accepting people for what is inside not just how they look, and that using your brains is integral to success in the real world. But as long as there are poeple watching the networks will continue to provide us with this junk.

this is a desparet mother who forces her daughter to give up her childhood to walk around hotel ballrooms. don't any mothers realize that there are thousands of perverts out there who attend these contests to get their kicks?i've seen a few while working at hotels and to see the way mothers yell and scream at these little girls because they didn't win a prize. one of the biggest scams are the ones thhat charge a $10-$20 registation fee so baby whoever can win a $3 trophy. these things make my skin crawl, hasn't anyone remember what happened to jon benet?

I love Toddlers & Tiaras! The whole pageant concept is alien and weird to me, but I find it fascinating nonetheless. As nuts as the pageant parents are, parents can be JUST as nuts with sports...... There is not as much difference as you might think in their behavior.

Thank God I don't have cable. Keep in mind, TLC stands for "The Learning Channel"...what exactly are we learning from this show? Push your kids to make up for your defered dreams? Disgusting, these little girls don't even look real.

"Young girls?" Try three-year-olds. This show is disgusting, and I cannot BELIEVE anyone would watch it, let alone endorse it and show it on their network. What is wrong with people today? Where have the real moms gone?
