It seems as though Kenya Moore is holding herself out as an expert of children’s beauty pageants, and …hookers! Yep. Kenya reached a new public relations low recently by telling In Touch magazine that Honey Boo Boo looks like a hooker! The article quotes Kenya as saying the following, ”Honey Boo Boo is not a role model for young women. Her mother puts her onstage looking like a glorified hooker! Pageants are about having poise and promoting self-esteem and self-worth. When a little girl wears a lot of makeup, fake teeth and extensions, like hookers do — that’s just not appropriate.” Continue reading »
Remember when I told y’all I didn’t believe that Honey Boo Boo’s mom June would have a body guard for the family? When I said that I was thinking that June could handle the papparazzi on her own. Today though, June admits that Alana has a bodyguard with her at all times. The National Enquirer says that there have been kidnapping threats against Alana; however, TLC denies that any such threats have been reported. Also, The National Enquirer story mentioned an attempted break-in. However, they also say that June wants to move but more credible sources have said that June wants to stay right where she is. I’m hoping the kidnapping thing is all just a bunch of made up drama for selling magazines. Nobody better mess with Honey Boo Boo!
Is it me or does the bodyguard look a bit unhappy with his job?
I read about ole Sugar Bear flippin’ his four-wheeler the other day. I didn’t really see it as newsworthy despite the fact that he has a very physical job in the chalk mines and it might affect his income. But today I was over at the UK site MailOnline and saw them explaining things like this, “Meanwhile, the patriarch of the family, David Michael ‘Sugar Bear’ Thompson is on crutches after sustaining an injury ‘mud boggin’, which is driving a car quickly through mud according to TMZ.” Driving a car quickly through mud would be stupid! Unlike mud boggin’ which is just a normal Saturday afternoon! Those silly Brits!
Meanwhile, the tabloids are claiming that June and Alana are traveling to Wal*Mart with a bodyguard. I seriously doubt that. Somebody named Bubba probably just offered to drive them. June would make quick work out of some LA TMZ types showing up. She don’t need no stinkin’ bodyguard.
I admit, I was pretty put irritated by the idea of yet another reality show set in Georgia that makes us look ridiculous. So I put off watching Honey Boo Boo Chile for as long as possible. But once I gave in…I …um sort of love it! TLC thankfully gives just a few scripted moments (like last night’s wig shop visit) and most of the time just lets America’s favorite redneck family be themselves. Despite the high brow folks who think the poor ignorant family is being exploited and mocked, the reality is that this family knows they are fat, and rednecks and don’t exactly eat a healthy diet, and fit a lot of negative stereotypes, and they embrace it. They practically scream, “Yes, we are rednecks, AND WHAT? You better redneckonize!” I love them for that.
Kris Jenner on the other hand apparently doesn’t love it. According to “a source” close to Kris, Radar Online reports that Kris thinks June is exploiting her daughter and is a terrible mother. The horrors of putting a child in a few beauty pageants! I reckon Kris thinks she should be getting those older girls in home porn if she wants to make the big bucks like her daughter!
