Look, I know some of you will judge me for this, but I love both Jersey Shore and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Child, I really, really do. I like Jersey Shore because it’s just a big ol’ hot mess, and I love to watch hot messes from a safe distance, obviously, and I like Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Child because I think they’re actually a great little family. Sure, they eat roadkill sometimes, and sure, the mom makes spaghetti sauce by melting butter and ketchup in the microwave (no, really), but they have a whole lot of fun together, and they have some really positive views and values that you don’t see a whole lot on television. So yeah, I love them, no apologies.
Keeping that in mind, can you imagine how wonderful it is that most of the men from Jersey Shore got together to throw some advice to little Honey Boo Boo Child? Hint: it’s very wonderful.
“Run with it, run with it, run with it!” Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio, 32, said earlier today when he and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro stopped by E! News to promote Thursday’s premiere of the sixth and final season of Jersey Shore. “Embrace it! Embrace it and go for it.”
The Honey Boo Boo haters remind Ortiz-Magro, 26, of the Shore‘s early days. “She gets the same feedback we got,” he said. “You know, ‘Look at these crazy people! What are they doing?’ Enjoy it while you can…Make the best of it.”
Pauly D warns not to take anything too personally. “Just push it aside, stay positive,” he said. “That’s what I do.”
And make sure not to forget where you came from.
“I would tell her to have a good support system and try to be grounded,” said Sorrentino, 30, adding, “All of us have a good system when we come home where there’s family and friends and whatnot to ground us to make sure that we stay true to ourselves.”
And call us crazy, but wouldn’t it be fun to see Honey Boo Boo spend a summer in Seaside Heights? “I think she would kill it,” Ortiz-Magro predicted. “She’d be like the new Snooki.”
Ok, so who’s going to start working on the show where Snooki adopts Honey Boo Boo Child? Is someone in the business? Can one of you guys send a fax or something. Thanks!
