Ashley Tisdale and Leah Remini parody 'Toddlers and Tiaras'

TLC's “Toddlers and Tiaras” was a parody waiting to happen, and Ashley Tisdale and Leah Remini have taken the bait. The duo filmed a hilarious Funny or Die video poking fun at the baby beauty queen reality series.

The gals skewer the stars of “Toddlers and Tiaras,” which follows dolled up tots competing on stage, with spot-on impersonations.

Disney star Tisdale shows off surprising comedic skills playing a grown-up Makenzie (an actual beauty queen on the TLC series) in a “where are they now” sketch. “King of Queens” comedian Remini portrays her long-suffering stage mom, Juana.

In one scene, Juana sees an outburst for getting spray-tan liquid on Makenzie’s “ni ni” (her prized pacifier).

In another, Juana and the other “moms” brag about spending hundreds of thousands on their little girls’ pageant careers.

Ashley, meanwhile, trots around on stage in “high glitz” frilly costumes and a voluminous brunette wig.

The hit series has recently come under fire for showcasing pageant practices like spray tanning, waxing and dressing toddlers in outrageous costumes. The controversy even warranted a People cover story.

How well do you think Tisdale pulled off playing an overgrown toddler?

    Would have been funny had it not been about a real child. This is in poor taste, this is a real child they are making fun of. Children are at the mercy of whomever raises them. Why poke fun at a little girl who cannot help how she is being raised? I'm pretty sure Ms. Remini would be outraged if a spoof was made about her daughter. The tangent she went on trying to defend the reason her daughter was on a bottle for so long says it all. Can dish it out, but can't take it.

    I used to think Leah was mean until I saw her on The Talk last year. She is a good actress because she fooled all of you haters. Leah is a very caring person. I agree, you are mean spirited people and you don't understand what acting is.

    What's wrong with you people? I've never seen so many mean-spirited people comment on an article. She did this for your entertainment. Stop being so rude and hateful!

    Normally I dont post, but in this case felt I should. I have to agree with those who think Leah Remini is an ugly, bitter, has been. Even in interviews and personal appearances, she reeks of foulness.

    Thats what makes her funny. She never has to act. She is just naturally unlikeable. A bitter hag whose 15 minutes are over.

    From looking at her facial expression in this photo, recent research indicates that a person only makes this type of frown when they have gambled on a fart and lost. She realized her flatulence actually turned into a full blown bowel movement, but it was too late to turn off the spout.

    In all honesty, it would not hurt Leah to work on her public image some. Maybe she enjoys appearing harsh, bitter, angry, rude, and mean. This hasnt landed her many jobs lately though.

    Does Leah have to use an entire thing of makeup every morning? Even acne scars look better than 6 inches of makeup. Come on girl.

    That look suggests she just discovered beastiality is illegal in the USA. Guess she will need to move to Sweden or Denmark.
