TLC's Toddlers and Tiaras feature Warwick girls

Posted: Updated:

A couple of south Georgia pageant girls are preparing for some national attention. They'll be featured on the TLC show Toddlers and Tiaras.

A film crew from California filmed the girls in the Miss Sugarplum Fairy Pageant in Valdosta in December.

7 year old Kylie and 5 year old Karley Barnes got into pageants when they were only 2 years old.

And the two little girls are very proud of their accomplishments.

Sisters Kylie and Karley are exactly what TLC's Toddlers and Tiaras are looking for.

"Once upon a time this princess went on stage and she won, there, there is your story," says Kylie Barnes.

They're princesses on stage and off.

"What is your favorite part of doing pageants? 'Winning'," says Karley Barnes.

And her big sister agrees.

"Going on stage and winning, that's the only thing I think of," says Kylie.

Their mom says the girls wanted to be in pageants because their aunt used to compete in them. Now, it has become a lifestyle.

"I always said I wouldn't ever put them in pageants but it becomes addicting," says Keetra Barnes, the girls' mother.

Even though they are competitive, their mom says they hate practicing.

"I just make up my own routine on stage," says Kylie.

While getting ready to go on stage they go from looking like normal little girls to pageant winners.

"The girls are so cute in their little outfits and little go boots, its just for stage. We would not dare wear this stuff out anywhere else," says Keetra.

She says for the time being they are going to sit back and watch other girls compete.

"We just ran out of room to put stuff," says Keetra.

As for now most of the crowns are hanging from their ceiling.

This weekend the girls will compete in the Miss Girls of Summer pageant, and even their mom is competing in this one, she is featured in the mommy and me portion of the competition.

They will be featured on the episode of Toddlers and Tiaras airing July 27th on TLC at 10:00 PM.
