Yes it may be gross and dumb but at the same time, I like how they know how to be confident and secure enough to be able to laugh at themselves, have fun, and not take things too seriously. I would rather be a dumb, happy redneck than a sad, depressed and stressed out person who is too uptight to enjoy the life that they were given. That's my opinion, hate all you want, but I do think we can all learn a little something from Honey Boo Boo.
Stupid, I heard that they aired the show because they're trying to make fun of them and watch them make a fool out of themselves,and now we got people from the big cities judging the southern part of the United States. Honey Boo Boo isn't making a good impression on the south. I live in the south by the way.
In my opinion it is really a shame what those mothers do to their children on toddlers and tiaras. and as for honey boo boo and her family, that just proves that it is TLC's mission to make people and america in generall look dumber than a bag of rocks. they seem to offer people who are uneducated about business and social behavior a "sweet deal" and they end up signing a television contract which will ruin their professional and mature reputation, therefore ruining their chances of getting a real paying job to start a life of their own. but don't get me wrong, it's not just TLC, it is reality TV in general.
I think it's okay. I watched the whole series and alot of things they do is because they're probably poor. Like washing your hair in the basin and throwing the dirty water out in the yard is probably because they don't have the money to fix their sink. Also if you notice the house is right next to a railway track and a petrol kiosk which probably means it's not the most expensive house of the lot. They just have really bad money managing skills and a couple of dirty habits but they generally seem like an okay bunch of people.
