When Toddler and Tiaras aired on TLC in 2009, viewers were immediately hooked. They were getting a behind-the-scenes look at crazed stage moms and toddlers who were addicted to eye shadow, sequins, and hairspray. While the show might have been controversial at times, such as Paisley Dickey dressing up as Julia Roberts’ Pretty Woman, people couldn’t get enough of the glitz and glamour.
Years have passed since the cancellation of the show. And while fans like to believe the girls stayed spunky toddlers forever, they are far from it! Take a look at what some of the contestants are up to today.
Taralyn Eschberger joined the cast of Toddlers in Tiara‘s in 2009 when she was only four years old. On the TLC reality show, Taralyn was known as being the perfectionist, wanting to win first place in every pageant she entered. She was poised and did very well under the intense pressure that comes with the lifestyle.
Since then, Taralyn took a step away from pageantry and show business to focus on school and have a normal childhood. She is a straight-A student and is enjoying extracurriculars at her high school. She’s on the cheerleading squad and has been dabbling in singing and songwriting.
