The Big Bang Theory which I find hilarious. Sheldon is my favorite character. The other night after a few episodes of BBT, the show 19 and Counting came on. That is an awful show and thankfully it was boring enough to finally put me to sleep.
Last night I finally got to see Here Come’s Honey Boo Boo. Mac
likes watching Toddler’s In Tiara’s so I was familiar with Alana Thompson (5-year-old, Honey Boo Boo) but I had no idea that her family was such a mess. It has to be worst reality show I’ve ever seen. These people are so off-the-wall crazy that as bad as it was I couldn’t stop watching. It was a train wreck, one bad scene after another.
They call these people red necks but they don’t deserve that title, they are in a much lower class all by themselves. I lived in West Virginia and hung with some of the finest rednecks the world has to offer and
these people are nothing compared to them.
I’m not sure when the turn off began, it could have been the conversation about picking up road kill and eating it during weekend barbeques or maybe it was when the mother revealed her foot that was mangled from being run over by a fork lift. Or it could have been the boyfriend spitting tobacco into a mason jar or maybe it was when the 17-year-old daughter thought she was going into labor and the mother wouldn’t allow her to go to the restroom as she feared the girl would “pee the child right into the toilet.”
But the last straw for me was when the family was doing a
Christmas in July fund raiser for some charity. The boyfriend was dressed as Santa and the mother commented how Alana (Honey Boo Boo) STILL believed in Santa and she wanted her to believe for as long as possible. My children were watching this show; after all it’s supposed to be about the life of a little girl and her family. I was pissed and the channel was immediately changed and the show will never be turned on in my house again. And shame on A&E for running that part.
I looked further into this family and learned that all four of the children come from different fathers who ALL have criminal records; one
is a convicted child molester. Even the Mom did time for writing bad checks and stealing from a McDonald’s where she worked.
This is a freak show and I give it two thumbs down and a big sad
face. This family needs professional help, not a reality show.
