Former Miss America and Desperate Housewives actress Vanessa WIlliams has majorly pissed off one of the reality stars from Toddlers & Tiaras. And hell hath no fury like a pageant mom scorned. The drama started when the topic of child pageants came up during Williams' appearance on Anderson Cooper's show. The former pageant queen took aim at the stage moms. The mother of four responded, "When the child is screaming and saying, "I don't want to do this. I don't feel like doing it.' When they are using special juice to get them hyped ... that's not my world and I would never have my kids do that." Well, apparently those were fighting words. Wendy Dickey, who is pageant princess Paisley's parent, fired back at Williams, saying, "Posing nude and having an abortion is 'not my world' and I would never have my kids do that ... so easy on the judging, Vanessa!" The dig is a total reference to Williams' new tell-all when she discloses that she terminated a pregnancy in high school. And of course there were those naked photos that ended up in Penthouse, which caused her to be dethroned as Miss America. So far, Williams has yet to respond to Dickey's comments.
