Princess and/or Tiara Complex

Now that I've confessed my penchant for beauty pageants, I have another confession to make. I've always had a thing for crowns, tiaras and the like. At Halloween as a little girl, I always gravitated toward princess costumes or anything with a tiara or veil. One Halloween, it was snowing and I insisted on wearing my bride costume. Of course, the material is so flimsy and I was wet and frozen in no time. Of course I got sick. Did that daunt me from my princess/bride complex? No way. Well, I'm off to work singing "When you wish upon a star........." Have a royal day dear people! (P.S. For anyone who was heartbroken at missing the Miss America pageant, CMT is rerunning it often. I saw it yesterday. The talent was worth watching this year - especially Miss Oklahoma now Miss America's beautiful ballet "en pointe.")

THe Miss America Pageant is an American institution. Hopefully it will work it's way back onto something other than CMT. I've always thought it was a fun way for little girls to dream. I never bought into the femisit crap that it molded girls into "barbie". What's wrong with celebrating being a girl?

I confess too - I also have a complex but it is not connected to a tiara. I would really like to have anything on my head.

Hey, the miss America pageant is great especially since the talent has improved so much but I have to confess I haven't watched any of it for 25 years or so. I go by tv sound while I am reading in another room and the wifie is watching it. In the old days I could barely stand to hear the screeching some contestants called singing.

WW, I'm sure you are a princess. As for me, I might qualify as a footman for the carriage. Old Baldy

It's the Cinderella complex. We, gals, are introduced to the fairy princess stereotype very early in our lives. Sometimes we manage to get it out of our system, sometimes it just follows us around. However, I always wanted to audition for the part of the fairy godmother.
What tiara! Give me that darn fairy wand so I can make some serious changes in my pumpkin patch!

there is SOMETHING to be said for there being a talent portion and an interview part of the competition, but why bathing suits? who wants to see that? Jeez!

why don't they give them something useful instead of a crown or tiara? Something like a socket set or a set of screwdrivers...

I have a tiara complex coupled with a Snow White obsession... the bride thing doesn't really come into it so much, but I can understand the tiara love!
