Oh, creep me out! That's revolting. They're feeding a kid that.
I watched part of a video of them on YT (couldn't last through the whole thing) and I noticed that the mother is only 32 years old. That made me sad. Her body is decades older than she is.
The little girl has a very pretty face; you can see it even with the garish clothes and the round body. Just look at the contours of her features and the shape of her smile. But I don't imagine the pageant industry will find her cute in a few more years. What will her future be like?
I'm all for cultural variety, but these folks are closing out so many opportunities because of a lack of education and of just plain curiosity about life.
Even as I say that, though, I have to add that I'm not put off by things like the "redneck water slide" they made out of the tarp and the hose, or the coupon expertise. Those are great ways to get the most out of life. They also obviously enjoy being with one another, and they take care of one another. Nothing wrong with that!

as long as they don't turn into the Gosselin's, then I don't care if they are making some extra money. Just as long as they spend it wisely and don't become addicted to becoming famous.
I generally refuse to watch these types of shows. I do admit that I recently started watching the Kardashian's but I'm determine to kick that habit, as I've come to realize that I don't like these people.... maybe Khloe and Lamar and Bruce. The others seem to be far too self-centered.
The Kardashians...my only hope for them right now is that they are a lot more active in charity than the public knows. Otherwise, I can't imagine the emptiness of a life where you get richer selling nothing but your name and your face. And richer, and richer, and richer...just displaying yourself.
Honey Boo Boo is a beautiful little girl. She reminds me of Shirley Temple. However, those girls (all of them, including the 1-year old born to the 16 year old) need to value their education. Pageant days, like figure skating days, are numbered. HBB met with Miss Georgia and told Miss Georgia her goal in life was to win Miss America. A great goal, but many of those girls competing for Miss America are also very educated.
