As if the intense pageant moms of "Toddlers & Tiaras" aren't enough, TLC has introduced "Cheer Perfection," a new series that follows young cheerleaders and their hyper-competitive moms. On this week's installment, viewers got to see one mom get mad when a little girl was hurt.
"How’s she gonna be a flyer when she has a boot on her foot?" the mother complained. "Why don’t we just find some blind kids and stick them in there, too?"
Two other moms were on the brink of getting into a physical fight, with one of them trying to have it go down right there in the gym and in front of all the kids.
The other mom had a different idea, though. "I’m not gonna do anything to here here. I catch her at Walmart," she said.
RadarOnline thinks these moms are worse than those pageant moms, while The New York Daily News is over all of these shows, writing, "Watching children get abused to satisfy the performance fantasies of adults got old several reality shows ago."
"Cheer Perfection" continues the tough competition every Wednesday at 10 p.m. EST on TLC.
