UNREAL REALITY TV!
Have you had the opportunity to watch Here Comes Honey Boo Boo? OMG. I know there is no reality in reality TV, but this SURREAL!
They refer to themselves as "red necks" and I can think of no more perfect adjective. They certainly do put the FUN in dysfunctional! One of their favorite things to do is go mudding...yes they play in the mud! And it seems they pretty much live on junk food and I do believe road kill!
They are a family of Mom, 4 daughters and Sugar Bear...Honey Boo Boo's daddy. I don't know if mom and Sugar Bear are married, but a few episodes ago they had their first date! And one of the teenage daughters is expecting her first daughter.
Of course one of my favorite family members is Glitzy, the pet piglet! Sadly they had to give her back to the breeder, but she was a cutie patootie. But, and there is a BIG but...they let that little piggy walk on the table and yep, you guessed it, it took a dump on their table! She did fit right in as she had a rather imposing flatulence issue, but then again so does Mom! And she doesn't hold back!
Honey Boo Boo is the star of the show. She is around 6 or 7 and an aspiring beauty queen. That is another issue I have and maybe another blog in itself. I do give the kid credit, she works hard. But the real defining quality of Honey is her attitude! And she has 'tude to spare! She can teach graduate level additude...with a shake of her head and 2 snaps at least!! She is quite endearing...in a red neck sort of way!!!
As dysfunctional as each and every one of them are, they love each other ginormously. They make it work!
In some odd way, they really do have strong family values.
If you haven't seen this yet, give it a try...you might like it. Or be repulsed!!
