Pearson girl will be featured on 'Toddlers & Tiaras'

A four-year old Pearson girl will be in the national spotlight next week.

Little Olivia McKinnon and her pony Bubbles will be featured on TLC's Toddlers and Tiaras.

You may have even caught her on a commercial promoting Season Four screaming: "I want a crown."

"She was in all the local pageants screaming at the judges and wasn't patient and wanting a crown," said Karey McKinnon, Olivia's mother.

"I got big trophies," said Olivia.

So a friend suggested they contact TLC and sure enough a crew came down in August.

"I'm excited but I'm nervous," said Karey. "I don't have a sneak peak and you know how edited T.V. is."

Olivia's buddy bubbles will also be on the show. Bubbles has been known to sleep on the porch.

"He thinks he's a dog," said Karey.

They have fun with him and have dressed him and dyed him with food coloring. Little Olivia says she takes care of him.

 "I feed him and water him," said Olivia.

Little Olivia has a unique bond with her miniature horse bubbles. Her mom says little olivia has placed and won several pageants.

"She just has a real competitive attitude and she loves to do it," said Karey.

And they hope they win the crown and hope you'll check them out next week.

The show featuring Olivia is scheduled to air on July 20th.
