Clip of the Day: Toddlers & Tiaras’ Contestant Represents Africa…By Looking Like a Real Housewife of Atlanta

If Toddlers & Tiaras is known for anything, it’s the education offered to contestants and viewers.  (Seriously, I had no idea what a “flipper” was until I watched this show.  My IQ has increased ten-fold!)  With its impressive educational bent, it’s no surprise that in last night’s episode featuring the “America’s Genuine Jewel” pageant that there was a “World Wear” competition, in which the girls picked a country to represent with their ensembles and routines.  I mean, just behold the historical accuracy of eight-year-old Damitri’ana’s performance representing Africa, for which she “was gonna look like a Real Housewife of Atlanta” and do “flips” and “lots of stuff,” as she believes Africans do.

“It was definitely different,” noted one judge.

Later, Damitri’ana’s mom Quiana defended her daughter’s costume. “It does have feathers,” she said, “and in Africa that’s what they wore if you watch [INSERT AIR QUOTE] ‘History’ [END AIR QUOTE]!”

Hard to argue with a “history” watcher.

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)
