Toddlers and Tiaras Star Hangs Up Her Crown to Launch Tour

A 6-year-old star of Toddlers and Tiaras steps down from pageant competition to launch her own tour as death threats have shown up on her Facebook page. INSIDE EDITION has the story.

Eden Wood, the pint-sized star of the hit TLC reality show Toddlers and Tiaras is hanging up her crown.

But six-year-old Wood isn't exactly going into an early retirement. "She is too big for pageants now," her mom said, "We are looking at the music industry and at Hollywood."

The tiny tot's career move came just two weeks after a series of threatening messages were posted on her Facebook page. The posts were from Australia, where Wood will be going on tour next month.

"We don't want your type of American trash here," one comment said.

Children's pageants have come under fire from critics who believe the contestants are pushed into the spotlight and exploited by their parents.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's 21-year-old daughter, Katherine, just tweeted this message: "I am seriously disturbed after watching toddlers and tiaras!! Totally child abuse!"
