Seriously... the girl should be removed from her mother's care. A minor should not be allowed to have botox unless it's for medical reasons ("wrinkles" not being one of them). Not only is it physically painful but psychologically, this girl is going to be majority effed up if she doesn't get help soon.

And how can the mother even afford it?! Botox is expensive and she only works part time...

I think the mom is the one with the psychological problems. Eight year olds do not worry about wrinkles unless someone has told them they need to. Could certainly cause lasting damage to the child's psyche. Removing a child from his/her parents should be a last resort unless the child is in imminent danger.

Thankfully the mother is being investigated for the child abuse, which is exactly what it is.

On the interview she said she got it from someone and taht she was sorta OK to give it to the girl. Its very shady where sheis getting it from. I'm sure its illegal as the day is long.

This girl is going to have body issues by the time she is 10. I mean most women do anyway, but could you imagine what it must be like at this young age to have your mom tell you you are not good enough. Yikes.

It's horrifying and ridiculous. What a shallow woman!

What's even scarier is this woman acts like this is commonplace among the pageant circuit for the younger girls.

I'll confess I watch the TLC show where they have kid pageants and no one has done that one. HOwever, they do some pretty crazy stuff on there. Its sad, really.

I'm not convinced it was all fabricated - people are often coached on what to say in interviews even if the basic story is true. So the emails instructing her with certain quotes don't prove anything in my opinion.
