Hey, Moms and Daughters: It's Pageant Time!

Hey, Moms and Daughters: It's Pageant Time!

This just might be the best bad idea I've heard in a while. The CW is casting for a new show called "Crowned" that will pit mother-daughter pairs of beauty contestants against each other. Sort of "America's Next Top Model" meets "The Amazing Race," but almost guaranteed to be more screwed up than either of those.

They're looking for both pageant veterans and first-timers, and the prize is $100,000 — plus, no kidding, a pair of tiaras. The CW promises that while physical beauty counts in the selection process, so does inner beauty. Well, I feel all warm and fuzzy now, so

I'm not going to lie: While I wouldn't in a million years enter a mother-daughter beauty pageant (sorry, mom), I think the people who do will be some of the best reality contestants we've seen in years. And I'm talking about an industry that produced Constantine Maroulis.

Also, almost all of the casting calls are at malls in the South. Stereotyping, much? Check here to see if there's a casting event in your area; it might be fun to just hang out and eavesdrop for a day, dontcha think?

my 6 year old wants to be in a pageant SOOOOOOO bad. i wouldn't mind, but dh is totally opposed. this show sounds like that true story/movie of the week called "texas cheerleader mom". what grown woman with children would want to be in such a thing? i think you have to a little different.

This is such a bad idea that it will surely be a huge hit.
