Love the banner! Princess Mononoke

mer

i hope she is in virginia. i will try to scope her out at the local mall stands. rich, i hope you get to interview her because i'd love to see what you have to ask her? look at those beautiful teeth!

milk&honey

Wow. Not a good idea to watch that clip before bed... Nightmare-tastic.

Neva

YES! I'm glad somebody pointed you to the link - I saw that this morning and just assumed you had felt a disturbance in the Swan force and would not require my services. I recently watched to documentary on YouTube, per your glowing recommendation and, man, you did not fail me. Live on, Swan!

Laura

Is there any way you can post or recap that VH1 show about pageant girls? I'm in Europe and can't see it and no one has uploaded it that I could find!

Orchide

Oh wow Rich. Thanks for posting those links. I always wanted to see Living Dolls but it had been pulled by the time I got around to it.
Swan is the best! Now, I am obsessed too. you MUST find her! haha
Its like watching a car crash. Those poor children...gah.
And hey if you can't find Swan, we know where to find Leslie Butler- still competing and still dealing with creepy ole Mister Tim (the singing mc). Go here americasmodelmiss dot com and scroll to bottom select galleries. Maybe you should interview Mister Tim or Leslie:)
ps- loving the Mononoke banner too- one of my favorites.

I do hope she has as normal a life as her circumstances allow. It turns my stomach to see little girls put into that meat market. The make-up, the processed hair...little girls are beautiful without all that. I wish they would stop traumatising these poor children. Notice it's always about the mom's ego. They do this to their daughters because THEY were never attractive enough.

If that's Swan today, she looks older than 13. I hope she's survived her very interesting childhood.

Thanx for posting the YouTube links. Now I can relive Swan all over again! :D

Leanne

I IMed Silva before her Myspace went private. She's a mom with two little boys, the manager of a Carraba's restaurant, and has a steady guy. Still looks as mature and together as she did in the documentary.

I WANT that to be Swan, because the eyebrows and bone structure are the same when she smiles, but I'm betting it's not. She just looks too old. Plus they didn't say where they got the picture.

Leslie Butler's Myspace is on private also. Still pageanting it up! Shane is doing pageant stuff on the West Coast and the other guy is still down South.

God, if Swan every sat down to an interview with Leslie, Mr. Tim and Shane, I think every fourfour disciple would cry tears of joy. There would be national celebrating!!!

I cannot thank you enough Rich for putting up that pick of Swan. You know I have tried very unsuccessfully to find any recent pics of her (although I have found updates on Asia Mansur and Brooke Breedwell). But Swan was always my favorite. Shame about her eyebrows though.

Wow, I remember this documentary. I saw it before I had a daughter of my own. Now that my child is of "pageant age" (meaning she's over a year old), I'd really like to watch it again. Thanks for the link. Just watching the clip you posted made me realize that, as horrified as I was the first time around, it's nothing compared to how horrified (and sad) I'll feel this time.

I hope little Swan is doing well, wherever she is.

I just went to americasmodelmiss.com to see Leslie Butler in all her tarted up glory. Check out the names of the girls...all pornstar names and spellings. They're all so spray tanned they look orange!!! Check it out Rich, it's a fourfour fan's dream come true.

Side note: Since Shane and what's his face broke up, anyone know the story behind that and why they got a divorce?

I too became obsessed with this documentary after Rich posted links to youtube. It's the perfect show to pic apart and make fun of. Perfect combo of funny and sad. I hopw swan is doing well. It killed how these girls are all dolled up at these pageants while their families are in the audience in old raggy tee shirts and dirty sneakers. And it killed me how Swans mom basically ignore the little boy and used the dorky boyfriend for his car and babysitting services. Remember how he trekked around on the bike. I could ramble about this documentary all day. Love it.

I cannot wait to watch Living Dolls! Can't wait!

My favorite part is Swan Brooner's "real" profile on myspace: http://www.myspace.com/swanbrooner
It cracks me up. Like "Hey y'all! This is me! All my pictures are screen captures from Living Dolls! I'm definitely not some creepy 70 year old man making fake pervy profiles for little pageant ladies!"

W.C.

OMG, me and Swan have the same birthday! Oct. 1!!!

Lauren

No, that "now" photo of Swan Brooner is a fake!

That is Tammy Lynn Leppert whom was in beauty pageants and an actress...and she has been missing since 1983 when she was 18 years old:

I really don't know who started this...but I guess it's not horrible if it gets her picture out there. Odds aren't she isn't alive anymore, but I know that her younger sister is desperately trying to find any information that is out there about her...

julie

i might be pretty unpopular in saying this, but i really feel for swan's mom. maybe it was due to strategic angles, shots, and film editing, but i just harbored such empathy for her, this have-not in a sea of apparently wealthy, seasoned contenders.

Orchide

that makes me sad that Tammy's picture was stolen and is now being pushed as being "Swan" on the Myspace page.
So wrong.

Hey boy! It's 'O' (I'll have to start using that now) or pikapika217 as I'm know on LJ. I immediately thought of you when I saw this. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Poor Swan! such a cute girl, such a tragic life
