No. I don't see myself or anyone I associate with (present company excluded) that anywhere relates to Hunnybewbew or her Chewbacca mommy. It's disturbing because. . . it's disturbing. People aren't supposed to be like that. Branchless family trees show more discretion than that.

Just watch the commercials. The show is just the commercial with 28 minutes of OTHER commercials on.

I think the show is funny because one of my roommates is from the area that Honey Boo Boo lives in. There have been multiple episodes where she will say how she knows that place. She hates that she shares a hometown close to where she lives.

I can't believe we as a population can waste precious time watching some other persons perceived reality.

Especially that of a controlling parent/child (they are interchangeable).
Real reality is a *****. I get reality all my waking hours.

I want some escape from reality, and that's getting to be scarce on the media, except for the news, no reality there.

I think it's odd how people talk about Honey Boo Boo being all trashy, but compared to the other reality show, they are not half as bad. Yes, they carry themselves trashy in a stereotypical "white trailer park trash" kind of way, but as far as the people themselves, they aren't bad people.

I'd say they aren't half as trashy as say those repo show families. I mean what is there to be said about a bunch of hardass types that like to get all tatted up and work out so they are all swolen then go around dominating people. They get a big thrill out of taking people's stuff and then having the confrontation where they are in control. What kind of people are those? People who deserve to get shot. Bounty hunters are the same way. They like that power. The Jersey Shore crew are/were twice as trashy in my opinion. They are just trashy people but they have money, and they know how to dress and stay clean cut or whatever, because they can afford it, but they as people, are garbage.

People see someone worse than themselves and make fun of it feeling more moral about themselves.

Remember Anna Nichole Smith's show? People like watching other's demise because it makes them feel better about themsleves.

I've never seen the show, but I looked it up on Wikipedia and found this:
June Shannon herself has been criticized for her daughter's diet, which includes "Go Go Juice", a mixture of Red Bull and Mountain Dew . . . . She has also been praised by Mother Nature Network for the "keen business sense" with which she feeds her family on $80 a week by clipping copious coupons, playing Bingo, exploiting roadkill and acquiring child support checks from each of her four children’s fathers.

There is also a picture, which raises the question of how she managed to find 4 different men willing to have sex with her.
http://img2-2.timeinc.net/people/i/2012/news/120910/mama-june-600.jpg

Sounds like, if you like this you probably had to quit your job to avoid missing episodes of the Jerry Springer Show.

I can't believe we as a population can waste precious time watching some other persons perceived reality.

I remember seeing on the news a few years ago how a contestant on an Italian "reality" show had to be rescued from an island because they would have died otherwise.

I thought to myself "Wouldn't the guy dying be reality?"

There isn't enough decent content on TV in an entire week to make it worth turning on for an hour. IMHO the majority of television is propaganda aimed at reducing the inteligence and morality of the public to the point that they become perfect consumers, mindless, bloated worms sucking down pap and excreting dollars.

If you're a fan of anyone on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, this show is your fault. It saw your demographic and tried to make a show that was more family-oriented and approachable.

Are they brain damaged? Seriously, are they? Do they eat lead paint chip salads every day? We really have issues that the galactically stupid are elevated to celebrity status. Just watching the promo's make me pray for a meteorite the size of Texas to strike the earth. The stupid now out number those with average intelligence.

Unless you get away from the pavement and concrete you'd never come across people like her sort.

that show and others like it are an attempt to further the stereotype that people from those areas are all like that. It goes to strengthen the idea that people from the south are dumb, lazy and fat.


These shows are all focused on one racial demographic. Ever wondered why?

White people are stupid and lazy, ESPECIALLY the southern ones. dirty hillbillies.

I had no clue what you were talking about until I youtubed it. I think I remember seeing a promo and tuning it out.

Based on the Duck Dynasty thread, I would have thought another show full of white trash southerners who can't speak English would be a hit with GT'ers. I guess if they were slimmer and had a bit more cash it would be more popular around here.

Not hard to see its about white trash. Complete idiots. Nothing more.

In a country that just re-elected Obama, its not surprising it has viewers. Stupid TV for stupid people.

These shows make all Southerners look the stereotype.

It isn't just in the South. The North has more than it's fair share of poor white trash. Come to think of it, Honey Boo-Boo's family should aspire to becoming poor white trash. It would be a step up for them.

In her teenage days, the mother actually lived in a neighboring town about 10 miles down the road.

I've never seen the show start to finish. I think I watched about 15 min on netflix.

The mother and boo boo were on the Today show. She was bragging how she was saving all the financial windfall for the kids.

BULL! these folks don't strike me as the type person that saves anything. I would bet 10 paychecks that soon as the show is over they will be broke and applying for welfare.

The people from Duck Dynasty are just good ole boys and very rich ones at that. I do not consider them white trash by any means. The Honey Boo Boo clan fit the white trash label that makes you cringe when they say they are from the south. In reality trash is in each and every state of the union so I don't let it bother me to much.

Ain't that the truth. Add to that Wal-Mart and Unions and you have the trifecta of hate.
