Those who don't miss a single episode of TLC's “Toddlers & Tiaras” must remember Eden Wood who, then aged just 6, sang “Cutie Patootie” and outraged the nation with her outfits, attitude and bad manners. Apparently, she hasn't changed much.
The reality show mentioned above takes a closer look at the world of kiddie beauty pageants, and the lengths mothers would go to to see their daughters crowned the prettiest.
As it happens, “Toddlers & Tiaras” has also been harshly criticized for the way it presents the girls and especially for showing what mothers do to have them up and ready for the competitions.
Eden Wood is an example of the worst kind in this sense, voices online are saying.
She and her mom were guests on Wendy Williams the other day and, as Radar Online and the video below will confirm, she was very rude to her host.
For a girl of 7 to call a grown woman “gurl” and to quiz her about her hair, whether it's fake or not, Eden clearly showed that, when it comes to attitude, she has the worst.
As if that wasn't enough, she also cut Wendy short when she tried to sing her “Cutie Patootie,” telling her bluntly, “Oh, please don't sing it.”
The 7-year-old diva in the making also talked about her upcoming show, stressing that it was all about helping other kids break in the industry.
“[It's about] helping other kids get to the top of pageantry. So I’m going to Kentucky, Japan, all over. And it’s really fun for me because I love helping other kids,” she said.
Later, in the same interview, Eden got her very own “diva fan” and “worked it” for the audiences, in what is, without a doubt, another instance of shameful television programming, voices online are saying.
Of course, there are also those (such as Wendy herself) who simply think that Eden is being “cute” when she does all these things.
Check out the video below and let us know, in the comments section below, what you think.
Eden's a fantastic little performer being judged far too harshly. She came across as bubbly, full of life and fun to interview. Wendy took it all in her stride. Love and encouragement, maybe with some friendly advice, would be better than constant criticism. Eden's got lots of fans following a superstar in the making.
