I myself can’t sit through an episode because June Shannon makes me nauseous (in one preview, she scratched her head and talked about bugs).
It’s a disgusting show, and getting into the details of why is like beating a dead horse. We all know why. Pulling back the curtain on the life and times of one ass-backward, redneck family is a tired concept, much like the one taking place in a certain section of the tri-state area (hell, make that a few sections).
Yesterday (August 26th), six-year-old Honey Boo Boo Child (given name: Alana Thompson) filmed the final scenes of season 1 with her family, including niece Kaityln (“Anna’s baby daddy ain’t in the picture,” Shannon said while her oldest was still carrying Kaitlyn).
The family taped interviews, posed for photos, jumped into the pool (with all of their clothes on, thank God), snacked on chips and chocolate and noticed that the paparazzi were creeping nearby.
The same day, HBBC competed in the Sparkle & Shine pageant in Cochran, Georgia. Mom, dad, niece, older sisters and even Uncle “Poodle” attended the pageant. During the crowning portion of the pageant, HBBC was surprised on stage by a visit from her former pet pig, Glitzy, who got lucky when the family returned her to the breeder.
Are you able to sit through an episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo? If your answer is yes, I want to know why.
