Blondes do have more fun!
But getting highlights at five years old isn't the most enjoyable experience. On Wednesday night's Toddlers and Tiaras, Carley's mom Melissa forced her daughter to forego her natural brunette locks for peroxide-provided blonde ones.
"I don't want to," Carley, 5, whined. "I wanted my normal color,"
"My normal hair is brown," she said. "I didn't want highlights. I want my hair back to brown. "
When Melissa tried to distract Carley, asking her if she was looking forward to having fun with her pals, Carley answered: "I don't have any friends."
Carley went on to compete in the Storybook Pageant, where she reluctantly portrayed Cruella de Vil. But after her hesitant performance, she ripped her eyelashes off on stage, much to the dismay of her controlling mother.
"Don't think that that went unnoticed," Melissa scolded.
Surprisingly, Carley won the Grand Supreme title. "We were hoping for Ultimate Grand Supreme," her mom grumbled. "[But] we are humble people. We don't expect more than what we deserve."
"After this one, I wanna take a long break from them," Carley said after crowning. "Because I've had enough of pageants."
