Mama June painted her old barn, wiggled her vajiggle jaggle into a beautimous, camouflage gown and tucked her forklift foot into some bedazzled sneakers for a ceremony of some sort this weekend. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say she and Sugar Bear got hitched. But they don’t normally have bouncy houses and serve sketti at weddings, do they? You can check it out the highlights of the big event for yourself and see what you think. I believe a mazel tov is in order.
“You don’t have to do a lot of makeup or whatever. Just take care of yourself, take pride in how you look. There are some days I look homely like hell, but beautimous comes within yourself and if you’re happy with yourself, that’s all that matters.”
– I’ll admit that Mama June from “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” would not be the first person I’d expect to dole out a great beauty tip. I mean, this is a woman who has neck crust. But I can admit when I am wrong! Mama June’s tip to a viewer on a recent Facebook live-chat on how to be “extra beautimous” is actually balls-on correct. You’ll never read this in Allure magazine, but a pretty face or slim physique mean nothing — nothing — if you aren’t happy with yourself. Beautimousness does come from within! [TLC]
This episode of “Here Comes Honey Boo” made me realize that I’ve been celebrating Thanksgiving wrong all these years. I’ve never made a Junecrow to scare the gnats away or ate Billy Bob mega multi-meal style or worn a fuzzy turkey hat or used the wishbone as a toothpick. What have I been doing with my life? Thanksgiving Boo Boo-style, after the jump. Keep reading »
Praise Jeebus, cute little country nugget Brad Paisley has done us a favor and recorded a new, country-fied “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” theme song. Because I have never listened to country music, I’m a bit unaware about this Paisley fellow, but he seems like one of us?
Admit it, despite your Grizzly Bear records and your taste for artisanal cheeses, you friggin’ love “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” Mama June and Alana and Uncle Poodle are seriously addictive, and we are so glad there’s a new season of the show on right now. But TLC, being the little buggers they are, aren’t giving up all the goods — they’ve got a clip from the show under lock and key, and they won’t release it unless the Twitter hashtag #booboosback becomes a thing. Once the container of cheeseballs is filled up, the clip will unlock. You want more Alana, Pumpkin and Chubbs, right? So what are you waiting for — get on ye olde Twitter and work that hashtag magic.

Gather ’round children and let me tell you a ghost story that will scare the ooo out of you. It’s about the Fart Ghost — a ghost that you smell before it scares you and it likes scaring people really bad. Sometimes the Fart Ghost farts … mayonnaise. BWAHAHAHAHA!
Oh yes, the return of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” was a scary one because it’s Halloween in McIntyre. So, we get to go deep into the Boo Boo’s psyches and find out what scares the ooo out of them (mayonnaise, frogs, ghost stories, getting pumpkins stuck on their heads) and how much they like candy. A GODDAMN LOT. Since we’re sharing here, my biggest fear is finding out that Mama June and I are actually the same person, which I’m starting to fear we are. We are the SAME AGE (still not over that), like to talk about farts and have a crippling fear of mayonnaise, or as Pumpkin calls it, “marannaise.” Holy crap. Some of my favorite frightening moments from the premiere after the jump. Keep reading »
I have something to live for again. “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” is returning this Sunday. If this preview is any indication, the second season should be just as happy-making as the first. Mama June reveals her fear of mayonnaise. (It looks like June and I have something else in common besides our age! I’m also a mayonnaise-o-phobe!) She says she had a babysitter growing up who made her eat mayonnaise sandwiches for breakfast, lunch and dinner. VOM. I feel the visceral pain of that. In the video above, Chubbs tries to school Mama on the virtues of mayonnaise. “It’s just like ketchup, but it’s white.” But Chubbs doesn’t eat it because she’s a vegetarian, to which Pumpkin replies: “Marannaise does not have meat in it. You cannot be a vegetarian because of marannaise … Marannaise is something you put on a sammich.” God, I missed Pumpkin. Meanwhile, Honey Boo Boo scoops marannaise into a giant bowl, inducing a panic attack in June. [Us Weekly]
It’s official. The phenomenon which is “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” has infiltrated every last crevice of our psyche. Including our sex lives. Boo Boo and other “redneck” reality shows like “Duck Dynasty,” “Bayou Billionaires” and “Swamp People” are causing an obsession with “hillbilly porn.” Adult website Gamelink.com confirms that there has been a 250 percent increase in titles like “Hillbilly Honeys,” “Real White Trash,” and “Ozark Sex Fiend” since 2010.

Alana, Mama June, Sugar Bear, Chickadee, Pumpkin, Chubbs, and Baby Kaitlyn recently sat down for this charming Christmas portrait at Smiley’s Flea Market & Yard Sale in Macon, GA. I’m really digging Alana’s green extensions — very festive! [WOW Report]
