Here Comes Honey Boo Boo

Poor Sugar Bear

by Anonymousreply 46209/27/2014

That little girl and her mother are repulsive. Toddlers & Tiaras can be an entertaining freak show in small doses. My favorite contestant is MacKenzie Myers, famous for telling her mother stuff like "you're driving me nuts." But she hasn't gotten her own show yet. Another little girl Eden is getting her own show on LOGO. I'd be willing to watch that at least once, see what it's like.

I know how we're supposed to react to this freak show. But ask yourself this: Who approves, produces, and markets this sh*t? It isn't Kentucky hillbillies. It's people from the same class of mental midgets in corporate media who pollute the newsstands and airwaves with US Weekly and the Real Housewives and Keeping Up With the Kardashians. You'll never see a reality show making fun of them, though.

The little hamlet they live in is just a conglomeration of some houses and 3 or 4 commercial buildings along the road in the middle of the woods. The "town" has a population of 718. I've heard that the whole family (who I have nicknamed "the fat family") is already going around their little burg acting as if they are Brangelina and family and the other people around them are getting fed up fast. They should be careful because in that stretch of the woods if they piss people off too much they're apt to get their house burned down. Them thar rednecks dishes out the cawntry justice!

It will not end well either. This family of cretins actually think this is the beginning of a lifetime of stardom for them. They don't have the intelligence to know that as soon as the interest wears off with the public, as it will, that show will be canceled or not picked back up for the new season and they'll be left in their hick hamlet, deep in debt, with no friends because they've pissed everyone off.

R55, I was thinking the same thing about Britney Spears! LOL!

I grew up in a tiny apartment with my brother and mother. My parents were divorced ,but my dad came over and visited us now and then. We only had one bathroom in the apartment so of course we had to share. It wasn't our choice that we were working class and financially struggling. If it was our choice, we wouldn't have lived in a tiny apartment.There was just no way we could afford a house to live in nor rent.

Also, it is not unusual for people to wash their hair in the Kitchen sink. If one of us were in a hurry to go to school or work, we would wash our hair quickly in the kitchen sink with nothing in nor around the sink of course. After one of us washed our hair, we scrubbed the kitchen sink with bleach thoroughly. Aside from that, there wasn't hair all over the place at all. Over all our apartment was always extremely clean and we grew up not tolerating any filth nor mess. Everything was scrubbed, polished, etc. My grandmother used to say that just because you are poor, dose not mean it is an excuse for being unclean barbecue soap and water is there to be used by everyone!

Like hell were we remotely like these people on this show ,and we knew many other working class people who were not like these people in the slightest degree. On the contrary, these people on this show are just trash that is horrifying and disturbing! I do feel sorry for the children though. Crass behavior of any kind was not tolerated by my parents, and we were always well groomed and used everyday polite etiquette.

BTW, I think TLC is one of the grossest, trashiest TV stations around. I know of some people who said they stopped watching TLC because its just a piece of junk and sinking to low levels.

Found out a little tidbit about this bunch from a friend whose sister works for TLC. The coupon queen mother is a complete fraud. Yes, she coupons as much or more than anyone, but that huge haul of merchandise in her "couponing room" was all brought in by TLC to make it look like she's a couponing magician.

The family has also been told to redneck it up as much as humanly possible (as if they would have to). The picture being put out now of the whole family sitting on the front porch was well crafted by TLC who posed each of the nitwits in the most damning pose possible. They wanted to make them all look like retarded mouth breathing cretins (again, as if they would have to).

You don't see that kind of organization/order in a typical redneck home. I also think TLC cleaned out the house, painted it and brought in the non-descript furniture. Most fat slob rednecks live like hoarders. Boo Boo's home is too clean, uncluttered and stripped down. It looks like a "set."

Back in 1996, conjoined twins Abby & Brittany Hensel were first shown off to the world. They appeared on the cover of Life Magazine which was still around. I feel like some years it is sold and other years is disappears. I know when I have seen it now it is all small, but they are usually commemorative issues and not new ones. Anyway, the conjoined twins were also on Oprah. Since then they have turned up now and again and TLC has given them their own reality show. The twins just graduated from college and are looking for a job in the new show. They drive a car. One steers and one brakes. That is crazy. I actually will watch this one because I'm fascinated by how the two work together. They could always open their own restaurant like Greg Kinnear and Matt Damon.

You know, much (most?) of reality TV really has become the modern equivalent of the freak shows popular around the turn of the century into the 20s and 30s. I had always thought we had evolved so much since then, but I guess not.

These latest shows have completed overtaken the social experiment-type that were first presented by MTV during those early seasons. There is nothing left to learn, it's all about gawking.

Remote Control with the late Ken Ober was the first show to break format on MTV in 1987. Good show, but I sort of wish it had been the first-and-only.

The PTB at TLC should be ashamed for inflicting this garbage on America. That's especially true of CEO John Hendricks, who founded Discovery/The Learning Channel.

There is no such thing as a "dwarf" pig or a "pocket" pig. They do not stay that small and end up abandoned when the stupid owners, like these slobs, figure that out.

Now idiot rednecks everywhere will think this is a good idea. Pigs are very intelligent creatures and what happens to them is very sad.

Mama June was talking to the camera at one point and burping. She is gross and so is that pumpkin creature who also looks quite slack jawed.

Sooo, Honey Boo Boo (a.k.a. Alana Thompson, a.k.a Joy Child) was on Anderson Cooper’s daytime talk show again (the last time she outed him as gay before he actually came out himself.)

I missed it because my DVR is set to Anderson, but it’s now called Anderson Live, but what I didn’t miss was this wonderful clip below of Honey Boo Boo taking OVER the interview with her mom without saying a word.

It’s Honey Boo Boo style, you better Redneckonize.

Honey Boo Boo: Ratings soar, as does criticism September 13, 2012 - 10:08 am

MCINTYRE, Ga. (AP) - The reality show "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" has been a ratings winner in recent weeks, capitalizing on redneck stereotypes and the oversized personality of a 6-year-old beauty pageant regular. But some who live nearby are concerned about the way their quiet pocket of central Georgia is being portrayed on the TLC series.

Continue reading

The show centers around Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, her mother June Shannon and their family. The round-cheeked second-grader, who previously appeared on the TLC show "Toddlers & Tiaras," has a penchant for outrageous catchphrases - "A dolla makes me holla!" and "You better redneckognize!" - that have gone viral and raised some eyebrows.

Yet as the show attracts healthy audiences for a TLC series - from two to three million weekly - it has also drawn strong reactions. Some say it exploits and mocks small-town people and perpetuates offensive stereotypes of life in the South. Others criticize the parenting involved. Still others insist the series shows a loving family that doesn't let outside opinions bother them.

In an interview with The Associated Press this week, Alana said filming the show was fun because she got to do things she doesn't always get to do, like going to a water park. Her mother said the family has enjoyed doing the show and believes the way it's edited portrays their unscripted life fairly and accurately.

"This is who she is," Shannon said as her daughter interrupted her with silly jokes and giggles. "This is her everyday life. She's got her own little personality, especially like when the cameras come on and when she's got attention."

Alana, who turned 7 late last month after filming ended, was friendly and playful, though a bit distracted, during her second national media interview of the day. Like so many kids her age, she likes to be the center of attention, and when she said or did something funny, she'd look around to gauge the reaction of those around her.

She whined to her mother about not wanting to go to school, but finally headed out the door to join her classmates in a tan dress and strappy silver sandals with little heels.

The tiny town of McIntyre is nestled in a rural county that is a major exporter of kaolin, a chalky clay used in a wide range of products, including cosmetics, medicines, catalytic converters for vehicles and heat shields on space shuttles. The town's population is around 650 and nearly 40 percent of the families had an income that put them below the poverty level, according to 2010 Census numbers. Main Street stretches for about three blocks and features a small handful of businesses.

The show has portrayed the area unfairly, choosing to fixate on shots of junk cars, garbage dumps and stray animals, Wilkinson County Chamber of Commerce president Jonathan Jackson said in a statement, adding that he'd like to see more of the region's positive attributes on the air.

"You can't very well ask and expect a television network to possess tact and taste - unless it makes them a dollar," he said.

Among the more than two dozen locals approached by the AP, the most common reaction to the series was that, for better or worse, it has "put McIntyre on the map." Many said they watch and enjoy the show, though most didn't necessarily think it represents the way most people in the area live.

"I don't mind it, it's just that it doesn't give a good image for the county since it is a small county, and it's a really family-oriented county, and we are basically, you know, church goers down here, and a lot of the things they do ... we don't agree with it," said Carolyn Snead, a McIntyre resident who works as a tax preparer. But she thinks Alana is funny and adorable and that if the show helps her succeed, it's worthwhile.

For those who didn't watch...Honey Boo Boo is outside on a chair giving her "testimonial" and she sneezed and two big snots came hanging out of each nostril and she covered her nose...the camera proceeded to stay on her as she hardly moved at all for the next 20-25 seconds. No one else could be seen or heard.

You couldn't help but feel sorry for her, but laugh at watching her and knowing that she was wondering what she should do...wipe it, remove her hand,...she finally got up and walked away without saying anything.

'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' hits ratings high

TLC is probably pretty pleased right now.

Following the network’s decision to order additional episodes (and “HOLLAday” specials) of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” Wednesday’s mid-season finale earned the series’ highest ratings yet.

A record 2.8 million people tuned in to watch Alana, the former "Toddlers & Tiaras" star, and her family on the reality show’s one-hour episode, according to TV by the Numbers.

“Honey Boo Boo,” which was the source of controversy even before it premiered, has averaged 2.4 million viewers since its August 8 premiere.

by Anonymousreply 35609/28/2012

TLC’s rural reality cringefest Here Comes Honey Boo Boo aired its midseason finale to strong ratings Wednesday night.

HCHBB was seen by 2.8 million viewers, up 27 percent from last week, just shy of the show’s series high 2.9 million. Among household ratings, it was the show’s biggest night ever. The performance comes on the heels of TLC ordering more episodes (including holiday specials) of the polarizing-yet-popular show. The new episodes will air sometime later this year.

Incidentally, Honey Boo Boo‘s adults 18-49 demo rating was a 1.4 — matching last night’s rating for NBC’s Summer Olympics-promoted comedy Animal Practice. Should NBC hire Boo Boo and ditch the monkey?

[On the air] My name is Frank. That's not important. The important question is: who are you? America has become a cruel and vicious place. We reward the shallowest, the dumbest, the meanest and the loudest. We no longer have any common sense of decency. No sense of shame. There is no right and wrong. The worst qualities in people are looked up to and celebrated. Lying and spreading fear is fine as long as you make money doing it. We've become a nation of slogan-saying, bile-spewing hatemongers. We've lost our kindness. We've lost our soul. What have we become? We take the weakest in our society, we hold them up to be ridiculed, laughed at for our sport and entertainment. Laughed at to the point, where they would literally rather kill themselves than live with us anymore.

I like June. She's salt of the earth and refreshing devoid of pretense. I'd rather spend an hour or two with her at Waffle House than 30 minutes at a press junket with Kim Kardashian.

I'm irritated over the sneezing. She clearly has untreated allergies. give her some fluticasone and stop making fun of her regular sneezing.

I truly hope they get representation and end up making the same kind of increasing salaries as those losers at Jersey Shore.

R359 - that doesn't fit this family. Not at all. Anyone who thinks so doesn't get it. They're the anti-Housewives. They're likable. When you look at them, they're more decent than half the reality whores out there. These people represent more of America than we'd like to think, which is probably what makes some people uncomfortable. They're the norm, though. The Real Housewives with their fake lips, fake tits and fake hair are just that - fake. Give me Honey Boo Boo any day. It's too bad more people don't think this way.

by Anonymousreply 36109/30/2012

R359 my point was that a percentage of those ratings are from people who do watch the show to mock and make fun of them. Reality tv is popular now because, as Frank says in another speech, it's the new gladiator sport for a dying civilization (us) and instead of christians and captured slaves we laugh at and mock trashy reality stars, talentless dreamers and medical freaks.

‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ Breaks Ratings Records When Mama June Kinda Ties The Knot

Weddings are crack for female viewers, so it’s maybe no surprise last night’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo commitment ceremony between Mama June and Sugar Bear clocked that TLC series’ biggest audience ever– 3.2 million viewers – and finished No. 2 in its 9 PM time slot among all TV programs, broadcast or cable, with women 18-34.

The Boo Boo clan closed out its season ranking No. 1 at 9 PM among ad supported cable networks in virtually all key demos. TLC nabbed its biggest audience in the timeslot, and it biggest female demo numbers, since a Trading Spaces: Home for the Holiday telecast in 2002. For the night, TLC enjoyed its biggest overall audience and best female demos since December of ’10. (Shhh–don’t tell Boo Boo fans Mama June recently told Ryan Seacrest she opted for a commitment ceremony versus a traditional wedding because it’s not legally-binding.)

"We need to have some order around here when it comes to farting."

The doorknob/fart safety game from earlier this season made me laugh so hard. My siblings and I had a similar game when we were kids.

R435 - they gave TLC those ratings all for $8,0000 per episode. Wow.

I saw a picture somewhere with June and all the girls wearing anti-LGBT bullying shirts. Love the whole family. People like them exist all over, and besides obvious health concerns (and sketti being gross, having tried it myself), you can see how supportive and loving they are.

The daughters are just too obnoxious, I can't believe they go to school the next day after these episodes air where they are shaking their fat guts and farting all over the place. I just don't like how disrespectful they are. Poor Sugar Bear.

Kids are mean, I would think the older girls would get mocked for being such pigs.

It's funny you should mention that, R442. Pumpkin was accoused of bullying two classmates earlier this year:

"Mama June took a can of whoop ass on her daughter after she found out she was cyberbullying two girls in her class ... TMZ has learned.

13-year-old Pumpkin posted 2 cruel Instagram videos last week, ripping into 2 classmates ... calling them fat, ugly and annoying.

What makes it even worse ... 4,000 followers watched Pumpkin rail on the little girls.

The mother of one of the girls got wind of it and blasted Mama June on Facebook, calling her a hypocrite because June has been so active in anti-bullying campaigns.

When June realized what was happening, she went ballistic, and took swift action. For starters, Pumpkin had her Internet privileges yanked. June also ordered her daughter to apologize to all involved.

June tells TMZ ... "My family takes bullying very seriously. I do not tolerate it. As a mom, I jumped in, reached out to the parent and took action."

Pumpkin got the message -- she went back on Instagram, but this time to post an apology.

Lesson learned."

I think the girls think they are too cool now, I hope June has saved them money because a few years down the road they will probably all be unwed mothers living in a dump

R445, June has said she is putting all the money the girls make from the show into savings accounts for each of them.

Discovery Communications wishes TLC had a deeper bench to support Honey Boo Boo. Get Tlc News and alerts free to your inbox

With ratings at nine of the company’s 13 networks up this year in the double-digit range, TLC’s are “kind of flat to down,” said Andy Warren, chief financial officer at the Silver Spring, Md., cable programmer. “TLC has been a challenge for us. It is certainly more choppy than we would like it to be.” He was speaking at an investor conference organized by Goldman Sachs.

Earlier this month, Discovery named Nancy Daniels general manager of the network that gained popularity for such fare as “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ and “Cake Boss.” She replaced Amy Winter, who stepped down in August and is to remain with the network as is exec veep of brand marketing.

Warren expressed hope that TLC, with a new GM at the helm, might develop a broader array of popular programs, rather than one or two shows that do better than the rest of the network’s lineup in capturing viewer fancy.

“We need more consistent delivery” when it comes to programming, he said. TLC has successful shows like “Breaking Amish” and :”Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” he said, but lesser programming lights “don’t perform as well.”

Warren said the company did not anticipate having to invest additional dollars into TLC programming, but saw a need to develop “more singles and doubles rather than big home runs.”

When exactly did the The Learning Channel become the Reality Show Channel?

I can't believe Breaking Amish does so well, it seems so staged

Anyone have any insight as to why Lee wasn't in the non-wedding episodes?

by Anonymousreply 45410/02/2013

I was watching the wedding episode reruns, R454, and noticed Lee was in them, but didn't have any sort of prominence. I wonder if he's just been quietly dropped as a supporting player?

What is the premise of Breaking Amish? Sounds fake as hell along with that Amish mafia show, which is totally fake because the Amish are complete pacifists for the most part. The Amish eschew most modern technology and avoid outsiders or "worldly" people.

how much do they get per episode now?

No one watch anymore? Anyone see that real estate agent last night? Loved when Honey Boo Boo asked him if he was a poodle.
