Guilty pleasures don't hold our attention for long. So after four seasons, we admit that we're not as diligent about watching "Toddlers & Tiaras" as we used to be. (Our love for psychotic parents and sexy babies is more easily satisfied by encore viewings of the Tom Hanks spoof anyways.)But maybe that's a mistake. Thanks to some well-chosen clippage on a recent episode of "The Soup," three-year-old Olivia has revived our love of exploited, spray-tanned youngsters in under two minutes.
