This is NOT gonna be pretty!
Toddlers & Tiaras star Eden Wood and her mama, Mickie Wood are getting ready to be exposed by the child star's ex-manager Heather Ryan, and we cannot believe that homegirl would do such a thing!!
Miz Ryan wrote a tell-all book about how Eden faked philanthropy and how she had all sorts of temper tantrums while she worked with her.
An excerpt from the book reads:
“Mickie was afraid that Eden would have a psychotic meltdown on camera because the child was not used to doing the ‘charitable thing’ by giving away toys on her own birthday… Mickie was so worried that Eden would melt down when she realized we were donating all the toys that I collected to children in the hospital, that she was chain smoking like a fiend…
I gathered several donations from generous friends and went shopping for additional items listed on the Blank Children’s Hospital website to make a pretty display of toys for ‘Eden to Donate’ to sick, hospitalized children, in honor of her 6th birthday. Mickie purchased a bunch of toys for Eden at the Wal-Mart when she arrived in Iowa, so that Eden wouldn’t see other children, regardless of their life threatening illnesses, receive toys when she did not. I thought it was very shallow and took a teachable moment from Eden’s life and cheapened it – but I guess that’s what Mickie considered as her ‘contribution to the projects.’"
Heather even went into the deets behind the video shoot for Eden's single, Cutie Patootie and revealed that her team had no financial plan, so they had to get fans to be in clip for free.
“When Eden returned to Iowa during her birthday weekend, February 18, 2010, I also set up a shoot schedule for her to film her very first music video. Again, I wanted Eden to be the ground breaker for which every other pageant girl aspired. No other girl had a doll, a book, a single, and now a music video.
Mickie was absolutely worthless in all things production and creative – not to mention budget. We had absolutely no budget at all for a music video, so I was tasked with, and devised a plan, to create a mall concert scene where people actually showed up – for no pay – and cheered as if they were big fans… Pulling off these tasks were not that easy an undertaking.”
The author turned to Eden's former publicist, Andrew Sullivan to launch the book, which is set to debut in early April.
Will U be picking up a copy?!?
