Last night's episode had my jaw dropping, too, and I only got to watch the 1st half hour.
Going into it, I expect the show to go over the top to fabricate drama, but I did not expect them to go so over the top with the sexuality theme... it had that uncomfortable feeling like Toddlers and Tiaras gives. I couldn't figure out why the adults went along with this story. I guess if they are obligated to Lifetime, then they feel like their only option is to make the best of it?
I didn't like the episode, but I did like the reactions some of the girls had to the (lack of) costumes. I laughed when little Mackenzie said her top would fit her American Girl doll. And I loved Nia's comments about liking how she looked in the outfit - it was just so innocent and honest and confident, and it made me smile.
