If you're the parent of a precocious, glitz-loving little girl, now might be the time to try and get her a spot on Toddlers & Tiaras!

Eden Wood has said her goodbyes to the pageant world completely, Alana (aka Honey Boo Boo Child) is getting her own show, and now, Isabella Barrett is leaving the TLC series that brought them all to our attention.

Isabella's mom Susanna tells E! News that while her daughter is leaving Toddlers & Tiaras, she's not saying goodbye to the pageant world completely.

"We don't believe pageants are bad, but we believe the way it is portrayed on Toddlers & Tiaras is," she says. (If you'll remember, a video of Isabella dancing to LMFAO's "Sexy and I Know It" caused some controversy earlier this year.)

"Isabella has been offered some amazing opportunities, but has been held back by what you see on Toddlers & Tiaras," her mom says. "And we tried to show that we are different from that. We are [into] positive pageants, but unfortunately it kind of fell on deaf ears, so we now longer want to be associated with the show."

The 5-year-old already has her own reality show on German TV, and is headed back to L.A. to shoot for pilot season.

She's also serving as the spokesgirl for Joy Dolls, the first ever hairless doll.

"We have dealt with cancer in our family and we have visited the hospitals with Isabella after her titles from pageants," says her mom. "I think the doll will open up the lines of communication with people for talking."
