If you ever wondered what it would take for the Parents Television Council to
go after TLC's "Toddlers & Tiaras,"
here's your answer: A 3-year-old named Paisley dressed up as Julia Roberts in "Pretty Woman," the streetwalker scenes.
"We have a serious problem when The Learning Channel features a toddler, who
probably hasn't even learned to read, dressed as a prostitute showing off her
sexy strut," the PTC tells TMZ. "There's no question, TV executives are
complicit in robbing these small kids of their childhood."

Or, some could argue, the parents are. However, Paisley's mom, Wendy Dickey,
has a different take on things.
She tells TMZ that the outfit is "less revealing than gymnastics wear and
swimsuits" and that Paisley does transform into the "classy" Julia Roberts as
well but that TLC chose to edit that part out.
"I take my kid to church every week," Dickey says. "At least I'm not forcing
them into sports and getting my child injured, like some parents."
