“It’s Got A Cotton Ball Taste,” Says The Woman Addicted To Eating Cat Hair

Yesterday, I had dim sum and was feeling adventurous so I ordered chicken feet just because I was curious. Not exaggerating, one bite and I gagged. They were so gummy and gelatinous, I wanted to die. I felt nauseous for most of the day and into this morning. Sometimes, when I am disgusted by something,…

Oh, heeyyy. What's that? TLC has a new amazing show coming down the pipelines? Oh, yes they do. The channel whose womb I want to crawl into, is bringing us "Plastic Wives," a series about the wives of some of the most high profile surgeons in Beverly Hills. "Underneath all that plastic are the wrinkle…

“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Recap: A Mega Multi-Meal Thanksgiving

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…

“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”: Time To Get Your Scare On

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…

I’m Kind Of Obsessed With Knowing Everything About “Wives With Beehives”

Oh, feminism, what a tangled web you weave! How could I have missed "Wives With Beehives," a program that aired last Thursday night on TLC (of course), about couples who purposefully live a 1950s lifestyle? The husbands go off to work, carrying their lunch in a pail, natch, while the wives stay at their kitsch-ed…

Here Comes Your Honey Boo Boo HOLLAday Present!

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 o…

“Extreme Cougar Wives” … TLC Is Going There

Nobody does extreme quite like TLC. They are leaving behind toilet paper eaters and polygamous couples for the moment, and delving into the world of extreme cougars and the men who love them. In this instance, the adjective "extreme" when used in conjunction with the word "cougar" means that there is a 20-year or larger…

“Long Island Medium” Channels Legendary Skater Harold Hunter

Well, this is weird: "Long Island Medium" Theresa Caputo wandered into a New York City skate shop on last night's episode and channeled skateboarding legend -- and "Kids" star -- Harold Hunter. Hunter, a controversial figure in the downtown scene (who died in 2006), supposedly wanted to let the dudes in Wampum Skate Shop know…

Finally, An Answer About “Abby & Brittany”‘s Sex Life!

A shout out to RoyalEagle0408 who sent me this Atlantic article, The Sex Lives of Conjoined Twins, which endeavors to answer some of the questions the TLC show "Abby & Brittany" failed to touch upon. In a British documentary about conjoined twins Abby and Brittany Hensel twins, which aired a couple of years back, there…

“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Recap: All Aboard The Biscuit Express

The good news is "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" has been picked up for another season! WOOT! And the bad news is ... well, you know the bad news. The season is over and now I have nothing to look forward to on Wednesday nights. I'm almost too sad to write about the "Here Come…

Watch A Sneak Peek Of TLC’s Crime Documentary, “Half-Ton Killer?”

We need to talk about the upcoming TLC documentary, "Half-Ton Killer." If you've seen TLC's other "Half-Ton" docs ("Half-Ton Mom," "Half-Ton Teen," etc.), this is a different beast. Yes, Mayra Rosales does weigh a half-ton. Actually she weighs 1,100 pounds and is considered one of the heaviest women in the world. But this is not…

“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Recap: Put Your Bingo Face On

I forbid you to talk about how next week is the finale of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." No, we are NOT going to discuss it. I am still working on my post-"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" contingency plan and until then, I am choosing to remain in denial. Let's talk about last night's episode,…

“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Recap: Guess Whose Breath, But Not After Eating Sketti

Ami: I am already anticipating going into a deep depression when this season of "Here Comes Honey Boo" ends. I can feel it coming. And I can't even bare to think of it. But we still have episodes to discuss and they are still mind-blowing, heart warming and disgusting all at once. I am going…

“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Recap: Shhh! It’s A Dumpster

I have come to trust in the power of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." I know that each week, it will leave me renewed and invigorated about life, teach me things I never would have known, take me places I never would have travelled … like Shhh! It's A Wig or the local department store.

“Abby & Brittany” Recap: Please Date Josiah!

I feel like an awful human being saying this, but TLC's "Abby & Brittany" just isn't living up to my expectations in terms of answering any of my technical questions. HOW DO THEY POOP? Don't get me wrong, they are wonderful, inspiring human beings. I enjoyed learning how they drive, watching them ride a Segway,…

What’s Your “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Nickname?

Do you need another way to waste time today? I think you do. And should it involve "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo?" I think it should. I still haven't figured out the formula for how the Boo Boos come up with their nicknames, but TLC has applied the top secret algorithm to their Honey Boo

June’s Forklift Foot Revealed On “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”

As always, the precious moments on last night's episode of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" were bountiful. I was still a little distracted by the discovery that June is the same age as me. It's going to take me a while to process that. Anyhow, the Boo Boos are showing no signs of slowing down.
