Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’s Mama June and Sugar Bear reportedly exchanged vows in a romantic ceremony on Sunday May 5th. The two have yet to confirm if they are now actually married or just recommitted to each other.
The ceremony was host to some interesting fashion where Mama June sported a camouflage dress accented with a bright orange sash. Sugar Bear sported matching camo pants and tie (so on point with his menswear game), a black shirt and orange vest. Of course, Honey Boo Boo was all glitzed up for the event in a sparkly pink and orange dress of her own.
“My sister baked the cake, and we spent most of the money on barbecue,” June told People Magazine. “We stayed true to our roots and made the focus on the family and my commitment to Sugar Bear. You can definitely plan an event on a budget!”
Also in attendance were Honey Boo Boo’s sisters Pumpkin, Chickadee ad Chubbs. June also revealed some important love advice to the mag:
“Never settle for a man who doesn’t treat you right,” she says. “If a guy doesn’t love everything about you, move on! There are plenty of other fish in the sea.”
“I give this advice to my daughters,” she adds, “because I always want them to be themselves and surround themselves with people who love them for them.”
There are a few important life lessons that I have stuck to throughout the majority of my life. A couple of them are:
Unlike the first two rules, the third is one that anyone can enjoy and it’s really fun to tell people you spent a whole summer watching Arthur with your 18-year-old brother.
One of my personal favourites (asides from Arthur) is Phineas & Ferb where they invent some crazy things during their summer vacation. Hilarity ensues as their sister tries to bust them and their pet platypus is actually a secret agent with an archenemy named Dr. Doofenshmirtz.
While most of the adult-friendly gags come from the doc, it’s kind of perfect to see him get his own YouTube channel (which may or may not be by Disney) where he comments on pop culture (last week: bacon & Honey Boo Boo Child). While the Doof is hilarious all on his own, too bad YouTube’s closed captioning can’t exactly pick up on his accent.
Here’s the latest installment of his show, Doof Daily, and remember to hit that CC button:
Thanks, cartoons for making us laugh, even if it wasn’t intentional!
On top of all his other projects, country singer Brad Paisley is now getting involved with television, creating the new theme song for one of your
least favourite shows. The musician premiered his parody song called “The Ballad of Honey Boo Boo” on Jimmy Kimmel.
The country singer manages to bring patriotic pride to one of the worst “reality” shows in television history. For that, we salute you Brad Paisley!

The next time we meet again, 2013 will be well on its way. While I look forward to the new year ahead of us, I can’t help but look back at some of 2012′s hits and misses. Thus, I present to you the best and worst of 2012 a.k.a. the year the world was supposed to end according to the Mayan but didn’t (thanks, Doctor!). Enjoy!
HIT: One Direction Mania
Every couple of years, a new teenage heartthrob comes in to replace the older version. In 2012 though, we not only got one cutie patootie, we got FIVE all thanks to music business genius and X-Factor judge, Simon Cowell. One Direction hit North American by storm selling millions of records, filling up concert venues and causing riots everywhere they went. If they can shoot out more infectious pop hits and stay as charming as they are in interviews, they can easily bypass the press’ comparisons to the Beatles and maybe last longer the few years normally allotted to boy bands.
MISS: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez split up
With the final blow of a heart-wrenching split, it’s official: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were the Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake of this generation, minus the matching denim outfit. With only rumours of a rekindling love affair to keep us warm at night, I’m going to call this celebrity relationship as official over until they show up at the next red carpet event hand in hand. Otherwise, I guess the title of the greatest lasting love story of this generation has to go to Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth by default. They may not be as picture perfect as everyone would like them to be, but they’ve been together for years and are engaged. Congrats, Miley!
HIT: Honey Boo Boo
Whether or not you were laughing along or laughing at her, you can’t deny the attention the sassy pageant princess known as Honey Boo Boo garnered this year. Honey Boo Boo, a.k.a. Alana Thompson, and her rag tag redneck family entertained us all summer long with their unusual ways and head scratching taglines. While TLC has moved incredibly far from the educational channel it initially hoped to be, we can learn a lot from Honey Boo Boo with her high level of self-confidence that many people (adults included) lack. You go, Alana!
MISS: Chris Brown Twitter attack/meltdown Read more…
You might think using pickup lines from the TLC reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is a doomed experiment in dating but this guy actually managed to do it!
Mikey Day challenged fellow comedian Trevor Moore to pickup a girl using one liners from the redneck pageant queen on Jay Leno.
The first couple girls seemed slightly disgusted but the third seemed charmed with this zinger: “Mama says that pretty comes in all different sizes, my size is cute. You wanna trade numbers?”
I don’t think many girls would be quite as forthcoming. Would you trade numbers with a guy who used a Honey Boo Boo pick up line?

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Jennifer Lawrence gets in a fender bender because she thought she saw Honey Boo Boo and One Direction calls Piers Morgan stinky.
HIT: Jennifer Lawrence car accident caused by wishful Honey Boo Boo thinking
With each and every uninhabited Jennifer Lawrence interview, the actress continues to give us more and more reasons to love her. This week, The Hunger Games starlet had to explain how she rear-ended a family in Georgia because she thought she saw Honey Boo Boo. On the 0.00001 per cent chance Lawrence reads this, we can totally be BFFs, nerd out on Harry Potter and watch Here Comes Honey Boo Boo together. Call me!
MISS: CNN’s Piers Morgan vs. One Direction
On the heels of the news that David Beckham was leaving the L.A. Galaxy, CNN’s Piers Morgan tweeted, “No serious top flight team would sign Beckham for football reasons any more- he should retire gracefully.” 1D’s Liam Payne and Harry Styles harmlessly replied to Morgan saying that Beckham is their hero. Apparently, that was enough for Morgan to throw in a couple of unwarranted 1D quips of his own, including a suggestion that Beckham should join the group and Harry should grow a pair. Was it a feeble attempt on Morgan’s part to finally get some publicity in America since joining CNN? Maybe, maybe not. But we do know the boys got the last laugh as #PiersMorganisSmelly trended on Twitter.
HIT: Journalists go crazy on 777 tour
Hands down some of the best stories of the week had to be the ones filtering out of the 777 Boeing airplane Rihanna and her crew hired to take her, 150 or so journalists and fans to seven cities in seven days for her 777 tour (see where she’s going with the 7s?). While the singer stayed up till 6 a.m. slinging out shots from behind the bar, some music journalists were going crazy due to lack of sleep and access to the singer. During one airplane ride, a radio DJ from Australia went streaking down the airplane aisles to the delight of his tired and frustrated peers. Another reporter, this time from GQ, somehow managed to keep typing a story out on his laptop even though he was falling asleep. At the end of the tour on Tuesday, Rihanna apologized for her absence and mentioned that she would do it all again (I can hear the invitations being ripped apart now).

1. Introducing the panda cat.
Even though he looks totally unimpressed with his life, he should be happy that he’s like the most adorable cat on the planet.
2. No F*cks Given of the Week.
Redditor Jillillac posted this photo of two people suspended in air on a portaledge, which is a device used for long trecks in the mountains. No big deal, just casually sleeping in midair.
3. The best/worst photoshop job.
Aberguine posted this super corny photoshop job that looks similar to that wolves-howling-at-the-moon t-shirt. It’s kind of creepy, but camels howling at the moon is my new fave thing.
4. Honey Boo Boo garbage art.
Here comes 25 pounds of glory. An artist named Jason Mecier uploaded this piece of Honey Boo Boo art which he made out of 25 pounds of garbage. It could possibly be a comment on how “garbage” some reality tv is, but I doubt that since Honey Boo Boo is pure gold.
5. Pugs galore!
“Pugs! They’re everywhere!”
While watching these videos, I felt my self-esteem slowly deteriorate into nothingness. I’ll be turning 20 soon, and there are many things that these kids can do that I can’t even dream of. Here are just 10 of the many crazy-talented kids out there.
1. Nolan Gould
You probably recognize Nolan from the television show, “Modern Family.” But after watching this video, I learned that the 14-year-old has already graduated high school and is studying at a college level. Um, when I was 14 I was bopping around my bedroom to various selections of “emo” music.
2. Lennon and Maisy
These young sisters have graced the youtube world with their lovely voices, earning millions of hits. Lennon, 12, and Maisy, 8 have won the hearts of the interwebz with their beautiful covers of songs like “Headlock” by Imogen Heap. The duo will be featured tonight in an episode of Nashville — their pretty voices included!
3. Matty B
This nine-year-old recorded a cover of “Ice Ice Baby” with the legend himself, Vanilla Ice. If that isn’t enough to describe how awesome this kid is, then I don’t know what else is. Matty B is a young rapper from Georgia, who has gotten attention from some pretty big names (Dr. Phil, anyone?) He’s also covered One Direction. Enough said.
Screen Junkies video of the Seven Psychopaths stars Christopher Walken, Colin Farrell and Sam Rockwell reading dialogue from TLC’s depressing reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo turned out to be certified Internet GOLD.
The video was so popular that TLC agreed to let host Hal Rudnick flip the script and have Honey Boo Boo and her mom read some of Christopher Walken’s most famous lines. Scenes were taken from Pulp Fiction, Catch Me If You Can and Saturday Night Live (GOTTA HAVE MY COWBELL).

Honey Boo Boo discovers cupcake ATM machine
I didn’t think Honey Boo Boo’s life could get any better. Then this happened.
I’m really curious to see what Canadian journalist Nardwuar asked Carly Rae Jepson. Call me maybe, perhaps?
Whoever made this balanced breakfast has a lot of time on their hands. I like it.
X-Men Gangnam Style
Soo this happened. Hugh Jackman teamed up with Psy to dress up as Wolverine. I really, really hope this evolves into an epic nerdy version of Gangnam Style.
365 reasons why…
Aww. Somebody has a really thoughtful girlfriend (apparently with an intense love of rainbow assortments of paper). A woman wrote 365 reasons why she loves her boyfriend, including #19 that says “…you still love me when I’m being a crazy, overly attached girlfriend.”
Maybe I’m a little confused these days, but when did calling someone Honey Boo Boo become a compliment? Have our standards become that low? Kesha tweeted Britney Spears her well wishes before last night’s premiere of The X-Factor, on which Spears is a judge, by jokingly calling her Honey Boo Boo.
Yeah, okay, the whole peer support thing it pretty cute — even if Honey Boo Boo is a six-year-old brat — but Spears’ reply was the clincher. Of course, her reference about Pepsi being her special juice is straight from The Book of Boo itself.
I try to reserve a no-judgment rule about what shows people watch, but I’m just saying, given the choice of watching a TLC brat and genuinely talented people on the old X, I’m going to take the latter!
It really couldn’t be more fitting. Remember Randall’s sassy narration of the “Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger?” The Honey Badger doesn’t care about anything. He just doesn’t give a shi*t. Just like reality TV’s pageant princess Honey Boo Boo!!
HyperVocal created the ultimate mashup using clips from TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Randall’s narration from the viral hit “Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger.” Why didn’t this happen sooner?
