I never watched Toddlers & Tiaras, for the obvious reasons. Not only is it about child beauty pageants, but it’s a one of the strongest examples of society aging children with makeup, ball gowns and bikinis. And, what do we know about this?
The more you encourage children to grow up, the higher the odds that they will become regretful teen parents to more children with the attention span of mice and an inclination to repeat the vicious prostitot cycle.
The parents are usually to blame. And that applies to the new show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
I don’t blame 6-year-old Alana Thompson. But, upon watching the promo, I don’t know if I can blame her mother (June) and father (“Sugar Bear”) either.
Can you point fingers at hillbillies who sign on the dotted line when they’re offered a television contract that requires little to no effort? No. I certainly can’t. Who says I’d turn down the money?
Too bad nobody would pay to watch me sit on my laptop, writing about Honey Boo Boo’s go-go juice addiction (her mom gave her the equivalent of two cups of coffee in the form of Mountain Dew and Red Bull during beauty pageants to keep her looking spry).
Her show debuts August 8, in case you wanted to watch it. Be prepared to lie to your friends.
