'Toddlers & Tiaras': Toddler Fued Between Kayla And Kailia Gets Real

Competition has always been fierce on the pageant circuit, and that goes for the girls of " Toddlers & Tiaras " (Wed., 9 p.m. ET on TLC) as well.

At the pageant itself, Kailia showed she had no love for Kayla, either. When she took home the prize, she went so far as to rub it in Kayla's face a bit.
