ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Could you imagine retiring from your career at the age of 7?

After years of dominating the competition, pageant star Eden Wood is hanging up the crown.

Wood has modeled in numerous campaigns, appeared on TLC's Toddlers & Tiaras, and has a lookalike doll.

So you may be asking yourself, what is next for this little girl who already accomplished so much?

Eden Wood and her mother spoke with CBS Atlanta's Jennifer Banks to explain her next move.

After our interview with Eden Wood she celebrated at Planet Hollywood in Times Square.

Eden's World launched on April 16 on Logo TV at 10/9c.

Beauty pageants have been a controversy for some time.

In February 2012, Banks interviewed another girl who was featured on Toddlers & Tiaras named Alana Thompson.

Alana's mother, June Shannon, defended giving her daughter a special energy drink called "Go-Go Juice."

The drink is a mixture of Mountain Dew and Red Bull, and Shannon said each bottle is the equivalent of two cups of coffee.
