Vanessa Williams' recent comments about pageant children and their parents apparently didn't sit well with one of "Toddlers & Tiaras" mothers. Wendy Dickey, the mother of Paisley Dickey, has struck back at the former Miss America by criticizing her past that involved nude photos scandal and teen pregnancy.
In expressing her annoyance, Wendy told TMZ, "Posing nude and having an abortion is 'not my world' and I would never have my kids do that ... so easy on the judging Vanessa!" She was referring to Vanessa's revelations in her memoir, "You Have No Idea", about her getting an abortion in high school and her explanation about ending up on the pages of Penthouse.
Vanessa ticked off Wendy with her statement during a recent interview on "Anderson". Asked if she thinks the children on "Toddlers" are being pushed by their parents into competing in beauty pageants, the 49-year-old actress/singer told host Anderson Cooper, "I think they don't know what they are doing."
"But when the child is screaming and saying, 'I don't want to do this, I don't feel like doing it' - when they are using special juice to get them hyped ... ," the mother of four continued on voicing her thought. After Cooper told her that the juice is called "Go-go juice", she stated, "Yeah, that's not my world, and I would never have my kids do that."
