Because TLC seems to enjoy finding the most interesting characters to profile on their reality shows, they now have a new series featuring a little girl who goes by the name “Honey Boo Boo.”
If you’re unfamiliar with who she is, “Honey Boo Boo” (her real name is Alana Thompson) is a beauty pageant queen who has previously been on Toddlers & Tiaras. In her new show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, TLC will follow the six-year-old’s home life with her family. In the first episode, it appears that she will be spending it in a farm-like setting that seems to have huge pits of mud.
I’m not much for reality series, but this particular show is a little concerning and horrifying to me. A six-year-old definitely doesn’t need a reality show or be subject to this much exposure. I mean really, didn’t anyone learn from Jon and Kate Plus 8?
But for good measure, remember her stint on Toddlers & Tiaras?
