No wonder all those Toddlers & Tiaras pageant queens and their crazy mom are so damned hungry for the Most Absolute Best and Most Ultimatest Ultimate Grand Supreme title. They want some moooooooneeeeey! And they're not getting it from TLC.
Radar Online has revealed that the glitzy tikes from the TLC trainwreck, I mean reality show, aren't getting a penny from the network. Even though they get on national television and humiliate themselves (I'm talking about the moms).
“Toddlers & Tiaras does not pay their kids,” an insider told Radar Online. “They survive off of finding unique stories that draw in viewers. They don't even pay for the families' entry fees into the pageants. But the moms do it because it's good exposure for their little girls and that's exactly what they want.”
So much for a dollar making you holler, honey boo-boo child.
“They can cast their entire season without paying a talent fee,” the insider added. “It is brilliant.”
It looks like little Alana Thompson and her mom might have figured out the special formula (Go-Go Juice) for earning a paycheck from TLC since she's getting her own show that is most certainly a paying gig.
