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

    Coffee is life: Washington woman's hands-free drinking tip goes viral

    Monday, July 24 2017 7:30 PM EDT2017-07-24 23:30:43 GMT

    VANCOUVER, Wash. - With Washington's new distracted driving law in effect, holding a phone while behind the wheel could cost you. In addition to the cell phone crackdown, the law makes eating, drinking or other activities that could potentially take your hands off the wheel secondary offenses. That means if you run a stop sign while drinking a cup of coffee and get pulled over for running the stop sign, you could get a $99 fine for drinking that coffee.
