Toddlers and Tiaras

Beauty pageants and brides collide on TLC

First, TLC gave viewers cute little girls dolled up for beauty pageants in "Toddlers & Tiaras." More recently, the network offered up super rich ladies in search of their dream wedding dresses in "Brides of Beverly Hills." Now, the two are merging.

Sort of.

Rather than a 5-year-old shopping for a spectacular gown to top all gowns, it's 27-year-old former beauty queen Kari-Ann on "Brides of Beverly Hills." And boy, is she one tough customer. After trying around 200 to 300 dresses, Kari-Ann admits she still hasn't found a dress that she likes, even with a hefty $5,000 budget. Check out this sneak peek TLC shared with exclusively:

Wonder if it'll be like this for "Toddlers & Tiaras" stars Eden, Paisley, MaKenzie and the others when they grow up and find their Prince Charmings ...

Speaking of "Toddlers," the controversial show is set to return on Dec. 7 at 10 p.m., and it's kicking off with a Christmas-themed episode.

"Brides of Beverly Hills" airs on Fridays at 10 p.m.
