If you have never heard of Honey Boo Boo then just watch Toddlers and Tiaras and you will soon know who she is. Honey Boo Boo is following in the footsteps on Eden Wood who landed her own reality tv show “Eden’s World”. Toddlers and Tiaras is a show about child beauty pageants and the sugar-crazed girls and the obsessive parents who support them. “Honey Boo Boo” is the rather strange nickname for 6 year old Alana Thompson from Georgia.The family, which includes mom June, who was also featured on “Toddlers in Tiaras;” dad “Sugar Bear,” a chalk-miner; sisters “Pumpkin” Lauryn, “Chubbs” Jessica, and “Chickadee” Anna.
If you haven’t seen the promo trailer here it is:
Although Toddlers and Tiaras is meant to be about the children it is often the fame obsessed parents that attract more attention so it was more than inevitable that “Honey Boo Boo” would land her own reality show. She has also become more famous for her catchphrases and behaviour than her performance in pageants. One of her most famous catchphrases is “A dollar makes me holler, honey boo boo!”. What six year old cares about making money? It just seems that it’s her mother that is more concerned about getting her 15 minutes of fame rather than having her daughter in child pagaents
Obviously I have only seen the trailer so I can only judge the show from the that but from I have seen I can only think of one way to describe it – car crash television
