'Toddlers and Tiaras': Now with a chance for animal cruelty!

As if "Toddlers & Tiaras" weren't disturbing enough on its own, now they're bringing helpless pets into the mix. Yes, there's a pet pageant. Pets and little kids -- two groups forced into these strange traditions, mostly against their wills.The season premiere features three little girls and their three little (and not so little) pets: Rainbow Dash (named after a My Little Pony) with her dog, Titi, Gabby with her guinea pig, Puddinin, and Lily with her miniature horse, Blackjack.

'Toddlers & Tiaras': One Million Dollars Invested In Pageants

“Probably near a million dollars," Kelly admitted. "They have a tour bus, they have a race-car trailer, they have Carl the bodyguard. They have their 13,000 square-foot practice building with a stage.” A practice building larger than many people's houses, a tour bus and a body guard! These girls are five!

While both girls placed in the pageant, she still wasn't pleased. she told the judges that Giovanni should have won the face title, as she was the prettiest girl in the pageant -- Kelly said quite plainly that Gia was prettier than her sister Alycesaundra. She then told the judges she would have beaten them "to death" if her daughter hadn't been there. Classy.
