Honey boo boo

I just saw honey boo boo and her mom on ET and it's a joke. Is this what america has come to? Praising an obese mother an her obese child for being redneck and uneducated? I an appalled by shows like this.

I see you are from S. Carolina so they hit kinda close to home for you but ME, I'm from Georgia. Everyone thinks everyone from Georgia is like that now. I don't even consider them rednecks. I'd have no problem at all with proper rednecks for neighbors. The people on that show are trash, plain and simple. I understand that this is someone's vision of entertainment and they have a right to express it. I exercise my right to not watch it. I am embarrased to be from the south when crap like that turns up. So nobody thinks that I am better than that, I have a confederate flag and the real Georgia State flag proudly displayed at home.

And to think one of my buddies actually PAID for the honey boo boo ring tone.

Sargar- I didnt know they were from Georgia. Rednecks are everywhere and are in every state whether its Georgia, south Carolina, or California. I know people from each. My grandparents proudly fly the confederate flag in Louisiana and I applaud you for that. If I recall a particular governor from last night, he spoke about children in respect to their parents. I can only imagine what that camera hungry mother actually puts her child through. :thumbup: to all good parents on this forum. The least I can do is applaud what you are doing for your kids and their actual wellbeing.

They are in South Georgia somewhere, I forget what town. Thanks for the respect shout out to parents. I've got 2 kids and they can be stressful to say the least. BTW, mine are not obese rednecks.

I HATE that show. My IQ drops watching it. I can stand that pageant stuff because it's for the parents to live through their kids.
I tell my fiance, that the best thing for that girl is to fail at pageantry miserably and maybe be shocked into something worthwhile.

I guess TLC must be politically correct with children on their network but damn. They're setting that girl up for failure while they make money off HER. While watching ET, she was eating pizza on rodeo drive, eating cupcakes out of an atm, and receiving a tiffany necklace all in a couple minute segment.

Btw, my background comes from being the oldest sibling of 4, oldest grandchild of too many to count, and a University of South Carolina educated person that my cousins, sisters, and 6 month old nephew look up to. Role models :thumbup:

My wife watches it. If I see it on, I find 'something else to do.' I don't understand what the appeal is.

That's how I feel about most crap on television. Real Housewives of anywhere, any of the talent stuff, etc.
