She was one of Toddlers & Tiaras' most popular pageant contestants but Eden Wood has transformed into a reality TV star in her own right.
The seven-year-old threw a party in New York yesterday to celebrate the arrival of Eden's World, her new reality show which premiered on Logo last night and the event attracted the cast of Mob Wives.
The smiley youngster hammed it up on the red carpet at the Dream New York hotel as Renee Graziano and Angela 'Big Ang' Raiola from the fellow reality series fussed over their new little friend.

The tiny tot, who retired from the pageant world last year at the age of six, arrived in a puffy purple gown that resembled something once seen upon the saloon girls of the Old West. A purple hair piece made of feathers and ribbon completed the look.
Eden, who is originally from Arkansas, grinned for the cameras as she showed off every angle of the rather mature outfit.

She presented her trademark pose – the blowing kisses stance – to the cameras, revealing a pair of strappy silver high heels upon her feet.
And while her blonde ringlets were kept high in an up do, her face featured the multiple layers of make-up she is often caked in.
The miniature gown's mullet-style cut, that fell well above her knees in the front, exposed Eden's tiny legs.
The Mob Wives' attendance was of course a cross-promotion between VH1, which airs the reality show, and Logo, which airs Eden's World. Both networks come under the MTV umbrella.
Mickie Wood, Eden's mother and Andrew Sullivan, Eden's agent were also in attendance at the New York bash. Both members of the pageant star's entourage feature throughout the new eight-part reality series, which sees the clan mentor a new crop of pageant hopefuls every week.
She told the Wendy Williams show that Eden's World is about 'helping other kids get to the top of pageantry.' Eden added that she will be shown visiting Kentucky and even Japan in her quest to educate others.
She said: 'And it's really fun for me because I love helping other kids.'
