'Toddlers & Tiaras' has had some seriously questionable displays of parenting, but never before has production literally halted an interview, rewound for an instant reply and asked, "Wait, wait, what?" in utter disbelief. Until now.
We've got an exclusive sneak peek at this week's new episode (Wed., 10PM ET on TLC) where Riley and Bob's mom proves how dedicated she is to socializing her home-schooled children. "We have taken our children to several drag shows. I've had her performing 'Poker Face' on the bar at Applebee's."
Yep. Uh-huh. But don't worry -- it's not that bad. "It's not like people threw dollars at her or anything, you know? She's not a stripper." Ah, well when you put it that way ...
Nevermind five-year-old daughter Riley's reasoning for not wanting to go to an actual school: "The teacher might be mean. She might throw me in a locker. She might put a bat, a rat, and a vampire ... she might put all of those things and I'll be passed out."
What is happening in this family? Take a look to see for yourself.
