On "Toddlers & Tiaras," viewers were introduced to Trystian. She was a pageant mom who said she wasn't like all those other pageant moms on the show because she wasn't into starting drama. Lesson learned: if someone says they're not into starting drama, they are totally into starting drama.
We probably should have realized, because she was on this show. The incident started at the registration table over the pageant fees, and then escalated when another pageant mom called Tristian the b-word. With that, the mother of 17-month-old Kelsie went off. Things only got worse when the pageant director, Carol, stepped in.
“Don’t act like you’re not a hoodrat, 'cause you know you are!" Trystian told Carol. When Carol tried to calm her, Trystian lost her mind, shouting, "You need to get out of my face! Don’t you put your hands on me, Carol! I will punch you in your damn face!”
“I never touched you," Carol said a little flabbergasted at the violence of this outburst. Things continued to escalate until Carol finally had to have security escort Trystian out of the building.
Shockingly, she still showed up the next day thinking that Kelsie would be allowed to compete in the pageant. When security showed up again, she created another scene. So, yup. No drama.
