Children especially girls should not be made up and objectified for the purpose of making money or winning a trophy. Though there still will be child beauty pageants, TLC has made a noble decision to cancel the airing of such shows. It’s a step in the right direction to stop the glorification of meaningless beauty pageants involving children.
Put away the glitzy dress, the fake eyelashes and stop the spray tan appointments because, as RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned, the controversial television program Toddlers & Tiaras is over.
The hit reality show that made Honey Boo Boo a household name is not coming back for another controversial season of tears, tantrums and go-go juice at TLC, multiple productions sources have confirmed.
“After six series, the show has been officially taken out of production,” one insider revealed.
“Was it pressure from distractors? No-one is saying, at least, not yet. They aren’t using the word ‘cancelled,’ but I can tell you that the show is over.”
The last episode “History of America Pageant” will air on October 16.
Toddlers & Tiaras was a huge hit for TLC, launching the careers for a host of young stars, but the show faced serious backlash and even caused Maddy Jackson’s parents to fight in court over pageant participation.
When asked for comment, TLC said: “Nothing has been decided at this time, we are just not currently casting at the moment.”
