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]
We can always count on Barbara Walters to redneckognize greatness. On the short list of her”Most Fascinating People” of 2012 is 7-year-old Alana Thompson, better known as Honey Boo Boo. Walters called her reality show, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” a loving story:
“The relationship between Alana and her mother — that’s the story, the two of them. It’s very touching … Honey Boo Boo is not an obnoxious little girl. She’s sweet and loving with her mother and loving with her sisters… And now Anna has a new baby, and the baby has [three] thumbs — but so what? It’ll make you smile.”
No mention of all the farting and burping, but we’re hoping Babs will get around to that during the sit-down interview, airing December 12 at 9:30 p.m. I suppose I should mention that other guest will include Hillary Clinton and Gabby Douglas.
But, we know who will steal the spotlight. After the jump, some imagined moments from what has the potential to be one of the most amazing Barbara Walters interviews ever. [US Weekly] Keep reading »
Happy HOLLAdays from Alana and the gang at “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” Guess what Sugar Claus wants to stuff in your stocking? A special HOLLAday nickname! You may have received your regular “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” nickname this summer, but in Boo Boo land, I guess they update nicknames seasonally. From here on out we’ll be referring to the Royal Baby as “Razzle Dazzle Butter.”
What will we be calling you this HOLLAday? [TLC]
Ladies! Has it really come to this? Mikey Day and Trevor Moore of “The Whitest Kids U Know” appeared on “The Tonight Show” and challenged each other to pick up a girl using only lines from Masterpiece Theatre mini-series “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” And sadly? It worked! I guess all a girl really wants is for a guy to talk about vajiggle-jaggle with her. We have really lowered the bar. [YouTube]
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.” Read more…
On the season finale of ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” Alana was briefly reunited with her former pet pig Glitzy, which was sadsies because we knew the petite pig wasn’t going home with her. Looks like Alana has moved on. She has a new bestie — a pet chicken named Nugget. Clever!
According to Honey Boo Boo’s official Facebook page, “her and nugget have [become] very attached this weekend … and it [is in] the house but has a outside house too but Alana refuses to let her sleep outside lol she sleeps inside at night in her inside cage.” I hope this best friend lasts. But I’m doubtful that Nugget will like wearing dresses as much as Glitzy. [People]
I’ve been following Honey Boo Boo’s delightful, Los Angeles publicity blitz this week. The highlight for me, besides the “Merock” Obama endorsement, was this “Inside Edition” clip where Alana and Mama June dined at Villa Blanca (the restaurant owned by Lisa Vanderpump of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”) and then visited the Sprinkles cupcake ATM. “Cupcakes in an ATM Machine, Mama!” Alana screamed. My thoughts exactly! You don’t see this in the clip, but at some point she stuck her head inside the cupcake ATM. She’s my spirit animal. Yes, she is.
Dammit! Why wasn’t I invited? I have modest hopes and dreams for my life: to go to the cupcake ATM, preferably with someone who likes cupcakes as much as me (ahem, Honey Boo Boo) and to be a guest judge on “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” How do I make these things happen? [LAist]
