‘Toddlers And Tiaras’ Five-Year-Old Star Calls Three-Year-Old Rival A Hooker

“Toddlers and Tiara” star Isabella Barrett, age five, was interviewed by TMZ yesterday as she was finishing up her spray tan appointment (like you do at five). Totally unprompted, the adorable tot told the cameraman that the last time she was in the salon, her three-year-old rival, Paisley Dickey, was there, and was trying to jack her swag. But she has nothing to worry about, she said, subsequently pointing out that “my mom won’t dress me like a hooker.”

Barrett is, of course, referencing Hookergate, in which Dickey was dressed as Julia Roberts’ character in “Pretty Woman” for a beauty pageant.

The only utterly unsurprising twist here — in what otherwise seems like a perfectly normal playground dispute — is that Barrett clearly has no idea what she’s actually saying. The words aren’t spoken with any trace of five-year-old malice, or even a small amount of understanding as to their meaning. In other words, there’s absolutely no doubt that she’s mindlessly parroting something she heard her mom say.

Another shining example of good parenting, brought to you by “Toddlers and Tiaras.” Watch the video here.

    I’m hardly surprised by kids these days when they parrot their parents. Have you seen the comments at Mommyish? To say that mommies are getting a little, uhm, bold with what they say to others (even in front of their kids) is an understatement. Those comment sections are riddled with assumptions, accusations, curse words & general filth. For some reason I find the hostility fascinating in a horrible way. Like how is that level of animosity and lack of empathy even socially acceptable? Especially the ones who state their opinions as if they were fact. Gotta love those types. “I saw it once so that’s how it is” types.
    It’s like one minute the kid’s Da Vinci and the next she’s too dumb to understand your “adult speak” let alone repeat it in the proper [bitchy] context. That doesn’t excuse the kid for being Miss McSnooty-Pants.

    It really grosses me out that TMZ is now following toddlers around trying to get them to say horrible things about each other. I know in this case the little girl is definitely repeating something she heard her mother say, but seriously TMZ? Stalking a 5-year-old? Get some class.
