Great but....

Love it all BUT I can't stand that Ravens mom is so up her daughters butt!!! Its annoying. Also MARAS MOM needs off the show completely. No mom should EVER treat her child like that. I mean look at her , over weight and lacking in kindness, beauty and personality. Maybe her daughter should teach her instead !!!!!

upgrade it please

Although I think Kim has good intentions for someone that was a Miss and walked on the Miss America stage what has happened to her language and professionalism or grace. I know it is the south but isn't she trying to raise professional and young LADIES of grace and poise.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Kim of Queens highlights the kinds of things that go into making tween girls pageant ready, which ranges from having the right hair, make up, and talent, to being confident and articulate. But most of the focus is on the larger-than-life Gravel, who believes that her strong sense of self-confidence developed by doing pageants as a young woman, and whose coaching style is designed to help her young clients develop life skills as well as external beauty.

Not everyone will agree with the coach's beliefs about the relationship between looks and inner beauty. But some folks may find the the coach's efforts to help girls go from awkward to elegant interesting and fun. They might enjoy the entertainingly contrived disagreements between cast members, too. But if you are looking for a pageant series full of over-the-top cattiness and lots of glitzy craziness, you won't find it here.
