We almost made it to the weekend without having to talk about an exploitative pageant mother this week. So close! But sorry guys, this news just came in and I have to share it with you. It’s going to make Honey Boo Boo Child and Eden Wood look like well-adjusted children. So from my scarred brain to yours, here goes.
Sarah Bunge, more popularly known as The Human Barbie, will be bringing her 7-year-old daughter, Poppy, to America to compete in pageants. While her name may not be familiar to you, her story probably will be. The 51-year-old mother undergoes plastic surgery like it’s on a 24-hour fire sale. She claims to have spent 1,000,000 dollars on surgery — and considering she’s not the sexiest woman alive, I don’t know that was 1,000,000 well spent.
Everyone on the Internet started talking about her last year when she gave Poppy a voucher for breast implants when she was older. An An ABC News story says:
Last year Burge, who says she taught her daughter how to pole dance when the girl was 6, defended giving her daughter a breast augmentation voucher when she told Closer Magazine, “Poppy begged me for a boob job, so I gave her the voucher so she can have it after she’s 16, when it’s legal. If she develops naturally big boobs, she can have something else done with it.”
And now Radar Online reports that she’s coming to America to out flipper every flippered child in America.
Sarah has revealed that Poppy is preparing to storm the USA pageant scene, and that she has already spent thousands of dollars on training, travel, hair and makeup to get her daughter ready to beat Toddlers & Tiaras at their own game.
Considering that this mother thought the photo of her and her 7-year-old (sorry, have to keep typing that number to remind everyone how young this child is) wrapped in caution tape was anywhere near appropriate just shows how terrifying it is that she wants to participate in these pageants.
All we can say is poor, poor Poppy.
