If you ever wondered what it would take for the Parents Television Council to go after TLC's "Toddlers & Tiaras," here's your answer: A 3-year-old named Paisley dressed up as Julia Roberts in "Pretty Woman," the streetwalker scenes.

Bing: More about 'Toddlers & Tiaras'

 

"We have a serious problem when The Learning Channel features a toddler, who probably hasn't even learned to read, dressed as a prostitute showing off her sexy strut," the PTC tells TMZ. "There's no question, TV executives are complicit in robbing these small kids of their childhood."

What do you think about this latest "Toddlers & Tiaras" controversy? Tell us on Facebook.

Or, some could argue, the parents are. However, Paisley's mom, Wendy Dickey, has a different take on things.

She tells TMZ that the outfit is "less revealing than gymnastics wear and swimsuits" and that Paisley does transform into the "classy" Julia Roberts as well but that TLC chose to edit that part out.

"I take my kid to church every week," Dickey says. "At least I'm not forcing them into sports and getting my child injured, like some parents."

WHERE ARE THE REAL STARS.??? WHEN I WAS YOUNGER THERE WERE REAL STARS IN HOLLYWOOD.   THE STARS OF TODAY SEEM LIKE A LOT OF WANNA BE'S. THEY AREN'T THAT INTERESTING. WHERE ARE THE JIMMY STEWARTS, THE CARY GRANTS, THE JOHN WAYNES.

 

ALL WE GET ARE JIMMY KIMMEL AND TRACEY MORGAN.  WE HAVE GONE DOWN HILL

I am so tired of Hollywood and all their phonies. They are for the most part morally empty.

Hollywood has really gone down hill. Don't really care anymore.

Well...I have to agree....all the "real stars" are sadly gone, or working in the director's chair.  All we have left are whatever the hell a "snooky" is, something called a "honey Boo-boo"? or something like that, and all the super teens with white teeth, big smiles, perfect hair.....and no "real" talent. Hollywood....you have lost it.....shame on you!

I watched this show with some curiosity for awhile last night; simply because the wife was watching it.  One cannot honestly say that there was anything normal about the characters portrayed in that show.  Perhaps I am an anachronism, but I must conclude that if NBC wants to convince people that these weirdos are normal, there must be some quite odd people at NBC..
