You know, when I first heard about this cutesy baby wanna-be-beauty-pageant-queen, I thought WHAT THE FUCK? It took me a while to really grab the concept of what this angel and her Mama June were sent here from heaven to deliver, and that message is to be yourself, no matter your form; be generous; but above all, BE YOURSELF.
Unlike many of the so-called and self-proclaimed reality stars grabbing their 15 minutes of fame, soon-to-be 8-year-old Alana Thompson, known the world over as Honey Boo Boo, along with her family, led by their matriarch, Mama June Shannon, is one real-ity star. I think it’s just taken some of us longer than others to realize. (After all, I’m much too busy ridiculing the likes of the Shmartrashians and their matriarch… the almighty self-professed pimp/whore-beast master of her very own high-flying family circus.) I never thought I’d give their reality television show on TLC, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, or their lives a chance, but I finally had to cave-in to all the hype. Boy, am I glad I did! I learned something about them and about myself. They are a kind and loving people who do give the shirts off their backs and more.
Yeah, they’re a bit odd-ballish at times, but what family isn’t? It’s those that are willing to go on national TV and share it with everyone else who are my heroes. So, what I’m saying is give peace a chance; give hope; and GIVE HONEY BOO BOO & MAMA JUNE a chance to grace their way into your hearts. You will be as surprised as I was to learn what they have to offer.
Could be this kid be the next GlindaTheGoodBitch in the making? Honey Boo Boo, that’s who!
