If your a Toddler and Tiaras fan then you're familiar with the cast of characters. Mickie Wood, is a shameless stage mother and works with Heather Ryan, a "Talent Agent," in an attempt to make her inept child a celebutant. Predictably, the relationship implodes and Heather seeks revenge by writing this poorly edited book cataloging her petty grievances. The details range from the ridiculous, like Mickie Wood putting ketchup on a $100. steak to the genuinely serious, like her failure to educate her child.
The shallow digs, superficial details and fluff are fun but Heather Ryan's whining and narcissistic rantings can be insufferable. She sees herself as a ground breaking creative genius and a brilliant professional. It's ludicrous. Listening to NPR doesn't mean you're intelligent and lying to promote Eden is flat out dishonest. It's ironic that everything she finds despicable about Mickie are all character flaws glaringly apparent in herself. They are both shady, passive aggressive, exploitive and delusional about their "talents."
Heather says she soul searches about her role in "creating the momster," when she should be exploring how she contributed to this train wreck. She laid the tracks by never setting boundaries with Mickie and blurring their professional relationship. She whines "we were family," and "she didn't respect our business contract," ad-nauseum, without ever seeing the connection; it can't be both. Real marketing and business professionals don't fetch hamster supplies at Walmart for their clients. They say "NO! THAT'S NOT MY JOB." The contradictions are endless but amusing. Heather is incensed that she was exploited by a woman who's exploiting her child, who she's hired to essentially help exploit. Who saw that coming? It's unintentionally hilarious.
The only thing redeeming about this book is it calls attention to Mickie's neglect. Hopefully after this was published CPS got involved and forced her actually start educating Eden and take the poor kid to a dentist. Otherwise, it's nothing but trashy mean girl gossip. Yes, Mickie Wood is a despicable but Heather Ryan is too. They deserved each other and we get laugh at it.
I am so sorry Heather that you had to go through this and feel such betrayal. It is obvious that it is YOU and your management that brought Eden to where she is BUT your story is very common among the early managers of celebrity's. They get to where they no longer need you and move on. Mickey is ridiculous and I noticed that in every shot od her and Eden she looks like she is about to punch Eden to the side so that her head is centered in the shot.
DOnt worry, when Eden becomes a teenager she will probably run off with some guy to get away from her mother . At least I hope that is all she does because there is cause for concern about her well being and self esteem as her looks are going through the awkward stage. I feel sorry for that little girl.
I really loved the book and my advice is to turn it into a screen play and pitch it as a TV movie. With Honey Boo Boo,s popularity the timing is right.
Also Snootie Patootie is hilarious.
