Anyway, we meet the E.T.-eyed Natali, 3, who is shy to the point I’m pretty sure she’s catatonic, and mom Holly who tells us she’ll do whatever it takes for her daughter to rock it out onstage. Ironically, her daughter kind of does remind us of a rock.
Natali “interviews” by having her mother sit right next to her feeding her the lines. Natali looks like she’s about to break out in hives from speaking out loud and it’s quite possible she’s missed her naps for the past 2 years. She seriously looks like she’d rather crawl in a hole and die instead of being on this show, which is the exact opposite of every other mother/child combination we normally see.
The reincarnation of GARBO!
Holly says she put Natali in pageants to help with her shyness and confidence, which is a huge load of bullshit as we shall see. Holly says she was really shy as a child and she didn’t want that for her daughter. Along with building confidence, she’s traumatizing her kid by having a roomful of production people watching her every move. This kid will be bedwetting for years.
I find my value in others depending on me.
Holly tells us Natali has a different personality onstage and typically wins her age division. I’ll believe that when I see it. Holly asks to see pretty feet but Natali only does duck feet, so Holly shows her. Pageant moms, we know your m.o. Why don’t you just participate in pageants yourself?
Then Holly says was started the comment influx last week, that although Natali is 3 ½ years old, she still nurses. That’s right. A kid who can walk, almost talk, chew gum WITH TEETH, and knows enough to hide her face on TV is still nursing. On her mother’s breast. Which is probably due to the fumes they are inhaling from living in a gas station.
Look, I get that people have strong opinions about breast feeding (check last week’s comments), but at 3 ½, isn’t she getting ready for pre-school and what I like to refer to as “real school”? How is having her rely on her mother for FOOD building her confidence? Is she learning to eat with a fork/spoon/spork at all? Can the child even hold a cup?
Mommy, can you drop me off at hospice and leave me there?
Personally, I find this gross and most of the time I think this has to do with the mother’s inability to let her child grow up. Wanna build your child’s confidence? Perhaps you should teach her to eat like human being instead of suckling you.
“If other people don’t like it, they don’t have to look,” Holly says. I hope you aren’t whipping out your boobs at the local foodcourt when Natali needs a snack.
