Don’t even get me started defending Honey Boo Boo or that whole family, because I will not stop until everyone who talks shit about this family shuts the hell up and realises their own ignorance. What many see as an obese redneck family with no class or sophistication is actually a really loving clan led by the incredibly intelligent and down-to-earth Mama June who is smart enough to have put the money from their TLC reality series away for her kids’ future instead of squandering it on some real bullshit. The show doesn’t have to be your cup of tea – I don’t take particular joy in watching them throw spaghetti strands at the wall or having fart contests – but I certainly don’t feel the need to put them down.
Anyhoo, Mama June – often criticised for her appearance, as happens – has dropped over 100lbs over the past couple of years without doing much besides becoming more active and changing her eating habits a bit. Here’s what she had to say to Access Hollywood (via DS):
“When I got on the scale, I was very, very shocked. I used to weigh close to 400lbs.
“Do I feel better? Yes, in a way I [do]. I’m more happy with myself. I try to tell people, be happy with you [no] matter what people say.”
Get it, Mama June! She also said she gets a lot of attention from men now, since many like “thick girls”. LOL. Don’t worry, she’ll never cheat on Sugar bear.

Hey who feels like vomiting today? Great, I have just the thing! Here Comes Honey Boo Boo premieres tonight with a special twist: scratch-and-sniff TV! The TLC nightmare put scratch-and-sniff cards in People and Us Weekly. And there’s a special method to this madness. From Business Week:
According to TLC, it works like this: When the show flashes numbers onscreen during the episode, viewers will be instructed to smell a correspondingly numbered card. [...] if you scratch the right one during the right scene…you’ll feel like you’re experiencing a fart.
And that’s exactly what I want from my television viewing experience.
While this dastardly show isn’t the first to use Smell-O-Vision, it’s the first show in decades to do it, and the first reality show. Why couldn’t they have done this for Cupcake Wars or Top Chef?
Who would watch and do this? SHOW YOURSELF!
How horrible, right? How could you hate an innocent little child like Honey Boo Boo? If you don’t like her, fine, or if you think she’s trashy, whatever. I see you up there on your high horse, I get it. But hate? That’s just sad.
It’s because she has a pet chicken. See that photo up there? The chicken’s name is Nugget. And PETA thinks that is the least cool thing to name a pet chicken. They want her to rename the chicken “Not A Nugget,” which for some reason just isn’t as catchy, and they want Honey Boo Boo to teach her family and all her friends that “they should be nice to chickens by not eating them.”
They also let her know that there are some super tasty vegan-chicken nuggets in grocery stores, which have the fun and deliciousness of chicken nuggets without the slaughter. They sent her some of those nuggets, along with a shirt with a chicken on it that reads “I am not a nugget.”
Oh, PETA. Stay classy.
