It was a "Toddlers and Tiaras" turnabout on "Anderson," when the stage moms from the reality show donned adult-sized versions of their daughters' pageant costumes. Check out all the photos below:
The purpose of the moms' makeovers was to let them experience what their daughters feel when they compete.
Despite the role reversal, the moms didn't seem to change their opinions about beauty pageants.
Alicia, who dresses daughter Laci like Lady Gaga, admitting feeling "revealed" in her matching costume but didn't have any qualms about Laci dressing that way. "It's not showing anything, it's a swimsuit for her," she explained to Anderson Cooper.
June, the mother of Alanna aka "Honey Boo Boo Child," admitted wearing a frilly pink costume didn't change her mind, either. "I don't rethink any decision that I've made for my daughter as far as pageants. This was all in fun for us today, yeah, the corset is a little tight. With her, she enjoys doing it, so we are going to continue doing it."
The "Toddlers and Tiaras" episode of "Anderson" airs tomorrow, Friday the 17th.
