It's stupid! Why should this seven-year-old girl be oversexualized and practically tortured just for her obese whale of a mother to live her life through her daughter? Why can't TV be good again? :iconstareexplodeplz:

Never watched the show (and haven't watched television for years now) but I saw this article floating around: [link]

At least they're better than most reality television one hit wonders.

I normally hate American TV bullshit, but I actually love Honey Boo Boo. Her mother isn't living through her, she's just allowing the kid to do what she wants. She has trust funds set up for all of her kids and her granddaughter, which they can't touch until their 21, except for college or medical emergencies.

They spend very little of what they earn on luxuries. Their biggest spend was on a car, which was used
Any spending they do comes from her husband's wages. She knows that this life won't last forever, and she doesn't want her family to start living above their means.

They also do fundraising and donations to charities in their area, especially children's charities. Honey Boo Boo raised over $16,000 to buy toys and presents for disadvantaged kids.

They love each other unconditionally, they are much smarter with money than the majority of "reality stars" and they have got a pretty good outlook on life. They don't deserve the hate they're getting.

In case it escaped you there are many shows like that - beauty shows for very young girls and dance competitions for the same. The mothers fight more among themselves than a married couple.

Honey Boo Boo is my inspiration in life. The total confidence, endless drive to win and succeed above all else, compassion for pigs, tolerance of alternative sexualities, and precocious quips that in no way sound scripted give me hope to go on. Redneckogize this! TV sucked for a long time before Honey Boo Boo, but now the shitpile has been redeemed. And Boo Boo is at the top of the heap. All hail our TLC overlords and the brave new world they have revealed to us.

TV is trashed for the most part with reality shows. And honestly, I don't get why these parents complain about pedophiles, they are the ones showing their hormone-charged children off on TV!

Television died the day the first reality show launched. It went from "see things you won't find anywhere else" to "see other people fight about stuff and shit". Hell, even the Discovery Channel and History have fallen to it. American primetime has become the cartoony-southern-people-do-stuff hour. :ohmygod:
