Sometimes a show has a great first couple of episodes and fades away as the season continues. The opposite is true of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” It just keeps getting better. Amelia thinks Alana will grow up to be the “funniest comedian that ever lived.” I agree. And, here in the office, we’re kicking around the idea that June is a sex positive feminist and doesn’t even know it. Oh, all the things I’m learning from this show. After the jump, some more nuggets of wisdom from last night including FORKLIFT FOOT. Keep reading »
Oh, happy day. The sneak peak of this week’s episode of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” includes a trip to the local Piggly Wiggly for some extreme couponing, an activity which June admits is “an addiction” and “better than sex.” I really need to try this couponing business, huh?
For now, I’ll have to live vicariously through Alana, June and the girls as they stock up the “buggy” with chocolate milk and mustard. Not surprisingly, June’s “quick math” skills are on point when it comes to saving money for her family. Alana’s math is not too shabby either. It might be better than mine. And Pumpkin? Well, she falls backwards out of the shopping cart. Of course she does. They should just cancel “Extreme Couponing” because no other couponers will be able to live up to the Boo Boos. More, please! We can hardly wait for Wednesday. [People]
It took me all of 10 seconds to fall madly in love with “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” the “Toddlers and Tiaras” spin-off about Alana Thompson, the 6-year-old pageant hopeful known for her one-liners and love of Go-Go-Juice, and her self-described redneck family. While I was already enamored with Alana after seeing her on “Toddlers and Tiaras” last year — for being, essentially, the opposite of everything the pageant world wants their living dolls to be — but “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” sold me on the entire Thompson family. What Alana, June, Sugar Bear, Pumpkin, Chubbs, and Chickadee lack in traditional etiquette and higher education, they make up for in love, acceptance, and family values. Keep reading »
I want to climb into the womb of “TLC” and live there forever. The network really, really gets it. Um, did anyone see the preview for “Abby & Brittany,” the new reality show about the conjoined twins? Holy crap, TLC. I bow down. Anyhow, last night’s two-episode premiere of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” was more epic than I expected. Not only were most of my pressing questions answered, but I learned things I never expected to know in this lifetime. Bless you, Boo Boos, for how you’ve enriched my life. This is definitely my new favorite show. Bottom line. Here are the six very important things you might have missed on last night’s episodes of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” Be prepared to have your mind blown. (Plus! Bonus clips of Alana on a new episode of “Toddlers and Tiaras,” which also aired last night.) Keep reading »
I’ve seen every incarnation of the “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” trailer, as I’m eagerly awaiting the forthcoming TLC show (premiering tomorrow night!), which features Alana from “Toddlers & Tiaras” and her clan. I’ve accepted her family’s nicknames (Sugar Bear’s not such a bad thing to be called), pondered the purpose of tummy jiggling (it’s fun!) and tried to understand how mud pit diving works (kind of like swimming?). But now that the extended one minute and three second trailer for the show is out, I have some serious questions about the Boo Boos (whatever the family’s real last name is, I am choosing to refer to them as the Boo Boos). Please help me understand the following: Keep reading »
The preview for TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” featuring “a dollar makes me holler” Alana and her family, is upon us. We already know the go-go juice guzzling beauty queen and her gaseous mother June from “Toddlers & Tiaras,” but we have much to learn about the rest of her Georgia clan. Here’s what we know so far: They like to jiggle their tummies, are into competitive mud diving, may have a lice infestation, have all their teeth and have names like Sugar Bear, Pumpkin, Chubbs and Chickadee. Oh, and they are NOT rednecks. Or are they? The August 8th premiere can’t come soon enough. Check out the preview after the jump. Keep reading »
