WATCH: 6-Year-Old Beauty Queen Retires

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Beauty queen Eden Wood has retired from the pageant circuit at 6-years-old, "Good Morning America" reports.

After racking up 300 wins, and becoming a fixture on "Toddlers and Tiaras," Eden is hanging up her crown to build a mini-empire -- including the Eden Wood Princess Canopy bed collection, her own action figure, a memoir entitled From Cradle to Crown, a variety show and an upcoming album. She already made $1,000 from first single "Cutie Patootie," which apparently didn't go over well when she performed on "The Talk."

Eden's mom Mickie remarked, "I couldn't believe the disgust and the disdain. If you want to attack somebody, attack me. I'm a big girl I can handle it. I mean, come on, [Sharon Osbourne] has a performance family. My kid's no different." And then she helped her daughter pen a song called "Under Puppy" (the smaller version of an underdog) dedicated to Osbourne.

Mickie said, "I think [Eden]'s following in the footsteps of some pretty big people who have done pageants like Oprah Winfrey," adding, "As long as she enjoys what we're doing and what she's doing, mama's gonna keep doing it. If it leads to the Miley Cyrus status or the Selena Gomez or whoever, so be it. If it doesn't, that's fine, too....Why not see if we can't have a Hollywood contract? A reality show? A spot on a Disney program? Why not? It's the American Dream. It's almost like her destiny." >>>CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO
