No one's going to stop mom Tricia from entering her little princess, SamiJo, in beauty pageants. Not even her husband!
When "Toddlers & Tiaras" viewers first met Tricia in January 2011, she made it clear why she wanted to have a little girl. "I decided to put SamiJo in pageants ‘cause that was the whole reason I wanted to have a daughter," Tricia revealed on the episode.
But Dad wasn't quite so on board with the whole pageant thing, and a lot of it had to do with how much they cost. "I think pageants are a waste of money," the turtle farmer had explained to TLC's cameras after telling his wife that he thinks they spent close to $100,000 on the beauty contests.
Money concerns? They're not getting in Tricia's way anymore.
"I am now divorced," Tricia, who now works at a "world famous wing place," reveals in an exclusive sneak peek TLC shared with us of Wednesday's new episode.
She's also traded in her ex-husband for a new man who supports her pageant dreams for 2-year-old SamiJo.
"Me and SamiJo have a wonderful relationship," boyfriend HG says. It's so great that the man had the little girl's logo shaved into his head. "I went and got it cut just to show I support her."

"Toddlers & Tiaras" airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on TLC.
