Nelson Mandela Loves … ‘Toddlers and Tiaras’?

0208-toddlers-and-tiaras-nelson-mandelEveryone has their guilty pleasures and it seems former South African President Nelson Mandela has one of his own … the TLC show “Toddlers & Tiaras.”

Yes, the revolutionary leader has a soft spot for child beauty pageants … at least that”s what his granddaughters say. Zaziwe Dlamini-Manaway and Swati Dlamini, who are promoting a reality show of their own, told the AP, “You”ll be interested to know that he loves “Toddlers & Tiaras”. Because of the kids, he just loves children.”

Another grandchild told the Guardian he”s never actually seen Mandela watch “Toddlers” and that he”s more of a National Geographic kind of guy.

That sounds more like it.
