Shangela spoke exclusively with about prepping Hailey for the pageant.

“We got a spray tan! Black people don’t need a spray tan, but we did it together and it was fun!” Shangela said.

He also said that he gave Hailey some stern advice.  “Show some life in your eyes and remind them that you want something – get that check!”

As a popular fixture from RuPaul’s Drag Race, Shangela said drag queens are becoming more accepted in society, even with little kids.

“They’re so much more accepting and it will be a better day today and tomorrow than it was yesterday!”

Toddlers & Tiaras airs on Wednesday on TLC at 10 p.m.
