Former Toddlers and Tiaras star Isabella Barrett is a millionaire at only 6 years old, and the pint-sized pageant queen certainly lives an extravagant lifestyle.
Isabella regularly enjoys filet mignon and lobster and once ordered $2,200 worth of food at a restaurant. She also has a closet full of custom-made outfits, which cost up to $10,000 each.
The majority of Isabella’s money come from her Glitzy Girl jewelry line, which she co-owns with her mother, Susanna. The mother and daughter got the idea from the first-grader’s pageant days, which started two years ago when she was just 4 years old. Every time Isabella won a pageant, she and her mother would have the titled print on a charm bracelet, “so she could brag about her accomplishments,” Susanna Barrett told In Touch magazine. Fans of the young beauty queen liked the charms so much that the two decided to take advantage of the popularity and launch the jewelry line.
Susanna Barrett also admitted that most of the revenue from the jewelry line is spent on clothes and shoes. “I’ll admit when it comes to Bella’s wardrobe, there is no expense spared,” she said. “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.”
However, the 39-year-old assures people that she hasn’t pushed Isabella to do anything she didn’t want to.
“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,” she said.
But it doesn’t look like the Rhode Island native has any intention of walking away from the fame and fortune anytime soon.
“What’s not to like about being a millionaire,” Isabella told The Daily Mirror. “I’m a superstar, I have my own jewelry line and I just love being the boss. I never lose at anything and almost every pageant I enter, I win.” All of that winning landed her onToddlers and Tiaras.
But there is something that Barrett loves more than being the boss and winning pageants. Shoes. “I have over 60 pairs,” she said.
Susanna and Antonio Barrett are required to save a percentage of Isabella’s income, which she will not be allowed to touch until she turns 18. The parents insist they don’t want their daughter to grow up spoiled or end up like Britney Spears. “I certainly do not want that happening to my daughter,” Susanna Barrett said. “But she does like nice things, so we do treat her.”
Do you think Isabella Barrett’s lifestyle is too extravagant for a 6-year-old?
