          What Were You Thinking?

          January 31, 2012

          Spray tans, fake teeth and hair extensions — is it too much for a toddler? Pageant moms Wendy and Susanna have been criticized for their parenting decisions — and they’re also locked in a bitter battle with each other. Can Dr. Phil help bring an end to this ugly feud?

          More than 16 million kids in the United States are at risk for hunger each day. Fortunately, you can help. Visit Feeding America to find your local food bank. And, help Dr. Phil raise enough money for 10 million meals. Donate today!

          A Controversial Costume
          Wendy came under fire when she dressed her then 3-year-old daughter, Paisley, as the prostitute character from the movie Pretty Woman. She faces her biggest critic, fellow pageant mom Susanna, who added fuel to the fire by calling Wendy out in the media. Does Wendy regret the costume choice? Plus, Susanna answers accusations that she’s coaching her daughter, Isabella, to bash Paisley for media attention.

          “I did not dress my 3-year-old as a hooker.” 

          Positive Pageantry?
          Is there a positive side to child beauty pageants? Two audience members who have strong opinions about pageants — and Wendy and Susanna’s choices — weigh in. Plus, Dr. Phil provides his assessment of child pageantry.

          “When these children get dressed up way older than they are, and they wear fake teeth and heavy makeup, that bothers me.”

          Susanna in the Hot Seat
          Susanna is put in the hot seat and confronted about a video that surfaced in the media, showing her 5-year-old daughter singing LMFAO’s hit song, “Sexy and I Know It.” Did she teach her daughter the lyrics?
