Isabella Barrett of Toddlers & Tiaras fame is a millionaire at only 6-year-old, thanks to her impressive beauty pageant record, TV appearances, and her own jewellery and make-up line.
Isabella Barrett has developed the lifestyle to go with her riches, telling the Daily Mirror all about her expensive taste in food, clothes and shoes.
“What’s not to like about being a millionaire?” she told the paper.
“I’m a superstar, I have my own jewellery line and I just love being the boss. I never lose at anything and almost every pageant I enter, I win. But what I love more than anything is shoes. I have over 60 pairs.”
Isabella Barrett’s mom Susanna, 39, co-owns the jewellery business with her daughter and entered the girl in her first pageant.
Susanna Barrett told the Mirror she doesn’t want her daughter to “grow up spoilt”.
She said: “You see what happens to these child stars like Britney Spears and I certainly do not want that happening to my daughter. But she does like nice things, so we do treat her.”
Isabella Barrett relishes room service at extravagant hotels.
“We travel so much to enter pageants, she really has developed a taste for five-star hotels and loves being waited on,” said Susanna Barrett.
“She can go a little crazy though and once ordered $2,200 worth of food. It’s never cheeseburgers and fries, always the most expensive like filet mignon and lobster.
“I know it seems pompous, but to us it’s just funny and part of her personality,” she explained.
Isabella Barrett has made most of her money from the Glitzy Girl collection, which features lip glosses, charm bracelets and velour hoodies. The idea for Glitzy Girl came about during her pageant days.
Every time Isabella Barrett won a beauty contest, she and her mother would get the title printed on a charm bracelet, “so she could brag about her accomplishments”, explained her mother in an interview with In Touch.
Since fans loved the look of her charms, Isabella Barrett and her mother took advantage of her popularity and launched the line.
Most the money they make from the line is spent on clothes and shoes.
“I’ll admit when it comes to Bella’s wardrobe, there is no expense spared,” said Susanna Barrett.
“That means a voice coach, make-up artist, regular spray tans, hair extensions, acrylic nails and even made-to-measure fake teeth which cost us $500.”
Susanna Barrett added: “Each performance needs to be like a Broadway show and every single outfit is custom-made, costing up to $10,000.
“We must have spent around $50,000 entering pageants in the last two years alone, but look where she is now. It’s been more than worth it.”
Isabella Barrett’s mother insisted to the Mirror: “I am not a pushy parent, I just help Isabella achieve her dreams. If she told me tomorrow she didn’t want to do it any of it any more, then that would be fine.”
