Things are about to get tense on the next episode of "Toddlers & Tiaras" as veteran pageant princess Alaska and her on-stage rival Gabby face off in a battle for glitzy bragging rights. And if Alaska's parents have anything to say about, it won't be pretty.
Get a glimpse of the intense parental pageant prep in this exclusive sneak peek:
"You have to take the full arsenal of all your outfits," dad Jay warned his daughter before the big weekend showdown.
That prompted an age-appropriate response from the 9-year-old: "What's an arsenal?"
Mom Lori explained that Alaska's bounty of frilly costumes and colorful cosmetics were her arsenal.
"If we were going to a pageant war, we would be pretty locked and loaded," Lori explained. "Between the outfits, the hair, the makeup, lashes, everything, I am locked, loaded, glitzing and ready to go kick some butt."
And just in case anyone thinks that Lori meant to say that Alaska, the actual pageant competitor, was the one ready to kick some backside rather than her, think again. As pageant time approached, it was Lori and Gabby's mom that were really ready to go head-to-head.
That fighting spirit from Lori should come as no surprise to regular "Toddlers & Tiaras" viewers. After all, this is the same woman who told Alaska, "You're not a stripper, but shake your butt a little bit," to get the pageant edge when last we saw her.
See how the pageant war works out when "Toddlers & Tiaras" airs Wednesday night at 10 p.m. ET.
