Abusing Children to Get that 15 Minutes of Shame … er, Fame

The sickest 21st reality TV trend is those horrid kids’ beauty pageants. The happy kids scare me: they’re learning  their self-worth is a face of makeup and big hair. The unhappy children hurt me: they don’t want to be there.

    1. Toddlers and Tiaras – I can’t watch this nightmare. Now and then the camera bounces off an extremely obese mother who is up dancing around with her daughter so she won’t forget her moves. God help me.   Watch Toddlers and Tiaras … Karmen’s Mom
    2. Little Miss Perfect – Inside Child Beauty Pageants – Listen to a pageant mother tell her daughter that her smile looks “constipated”. Little Miss Perfect – Inside Child Beauty Pageants  
    3. Child Pageants – Tyra Part I A mother on the program insists her 5-year-old daughter has made the decision herself to be in pageants. A child on the show removes her “flipper” – fake teeth.
    4. Latest Little Miss Perfect Transformation. Drop-kick me Lord.

No one is calling these misguided mothers Nazis (except me). But look at the motives of Joseph and Magda Goebbels when exploiting their 6 beautiful children 34 times in several propagandist movies of the “German Model Family“.Their motives aren`t that different from modern pageant mothers. Goebbels was Hitler’s Reich Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany from 1939 – 1945.  At the end of the war, the Goebbels killed their children then committed suicide. Watch How Joseph and Magda Goebbels Exploited their Children for Nazi Propaganda

Jonbenet Ramsey. There were 2 reasons why the story dominated headlines as widely as it did:  (1) she was found in the basement of her own home  (2) she was a child beauty pageant queen. Do I believe the Ramsey’s murdered their child? No I don’t. Do I believe the Ramsey’s are responsible for the murder? Yes I do. Putting Jonbenet on display undoubtedly contributed to this child’s murder. Watch Jonbenet Investigation Part I

Child Actors. Very few make the transition from child stars to healthy adults. Read my blogs Leif Garrett teen heart-throb and gigolo; Anissa Jones – short-lived career and short-lived life , Dana Plato – Kimberly and her diff“rent lives . Other stories include Rusty Hamer who died at forty-two of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Jonathan Bandis – committed suicide since he was depressed about his career, which declined in recent years.  There`s similar stories in the blog 6 of the most epic child actor failures. If that isn`t proof enough that we`ve lost our perspective on childhood, watch video pageant mother ìnjects 8 year old with botox.

Oh, the shame, er fame, of those 15 minutes.
