‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ Premiere: Five-Year-Old Chugs Sugar Packets

For 230-pound pro-wrestlers, it’s steroids. For forty-pound five-year-old pageant queens, it’s sugar. TLC’s already controversial ‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ took the “pageant crack” scandal to new heights when five-year-old Isabella’s mom, Susanna had her tired daughter downing straight sugar packets in last night’s season five premiere.

The mothers on the hit TLC show will tell you child beauty pageants get a bad rap. They’ll insist that the fifty-grand they poured into their little girl’s spray tanning sessions, flippers (fake teeth), make-up, choreography, travel expenses and high-glitz dress was worth it for the five-grand in “scholarship” money and the flimsy trophy they’ll take home when they’re crowned “Grand Supreme.”

But it certainly doesn’t help that kindergarteners are made to trot out on stage dressed like Dolly Parton (complete with fake boobs and butt padding), Lady Gaga in her infamous “meat dress” and Julia Roberts in ‘Pretty Woman.’ Or that they’re “doping” their little girls with Pixie Stix, some sort of concoction known as “Go-Go Juice” and now straight sugar.

The issue of “juicing” little girls on ‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ has gotten some pretty mainstream attention. Both Anderson Cooper and Dr. Drew haven taken a swig of  “Go-Go Juice,” a blend of sugar and caffeine which June Shannon uses to fuel her  six-year-old daughter, Alana “Honey Boo-Boo Child” Thompson at pageants. Neither has slept since.
