Bad Parenting In Glastonbury
Any dummy can have a kid. And any dummy can get lucky enough to have a kid that is deemed cute. But it takes a real animal to take their cute kid and tart them up like a hooker and make the “perform” for trophies and cash. Enter the Pageant Parent. You can see their activities documented on TLC’s “Toddlers & Tiaras”. (It should be noted that TLC stands for The Learning Channel not Tiny Little Call-Girls)
The pox that is T&T has been on the air since 2008 and has spawned the shit-storm that is Honey Boo Boo. A couple in Glastonbury has decided to drag CT in to the smut by getting their child on the show. Darci McHenry’s six-year-old daughter Devin will be featured in the upcoming season of T&T. Devin is a veteran of 30 pageants, is National American Miss Connecticut Princess 2012 New England Cinderella. Feel free to watch the video linked below to see Devin’s audition “rap”.
I am not sure what possesses a parent to treat their child like a living dress-up doll. Perhaps Darci is living out her fantasies through her daughter. Or she really believes that her daughter wants to be a show pony. I just don’t get it. Thankfully this is reportedly the final season of T&T. Perhaps TLC can actually provide programming that we can LEARN from in the near future.
