Well, this shouldn't shock you. The network that has brought us such gems as Toddlers and Tiaras, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, and Breaking Amish (and don't think I don't DVR every last one of them!!) has totally outdone itself. The channel once known as The Learning Channel wants to teach you about nudists. That's right, y'all! Get ready for Buying Naked, TLC's sure to be latest hit.
The show follows a realtor in Pasco County, Florida which she hails as the nudist capital of the world with over a dozen communities where folks can let it all hang out…literally. She's the premiere saleswoman for nekkid homes, describing her clients as not wearing any pants, yet still having deep pockets. I can't even. I mean. Yes. This is an actual thing. Thank you TLC. I have now officially seen everything…and I can't unsee the preview!
Be sure to check out a sneak peek of Buying Naked after the jump, but be forewarned…there are a lot of hairy bums (no blurring here!) and strategically placed garden hoses (true story) and margarita glasses. I wish I were making this up!

With no frighteningly competitive tantrum-throwing moms and creepy pageant coach dads living their dreams through overly caffeinated living dolls, wherever is the THE LEARNING CHANNEL (it cracks me up every time) going to get its material? Oh, that's right…the Amish (and I love it. No shame).
Where am I going with this, you ask? After six seasons, Toddlers & Tiaras is no more. Let that sink for a second.
Forklift foot, neck rust, and 'sketti aside (I do sometimes have to avert my eyes), this family loves one another. They seem to have accomplished what no other reality stars have been able to do—staying grounded!
And now, we get to see even more of crew because TLC has ordered more episodes.
If you learn anything important from TLC (and why wouldn't you? It's The Learning Channel for goodness' sake!), it should be that you don't mess with June Shannon. The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch may be a fierce mama bear when it comes to protecting her colorful brood. That said, she's just as quick to call them out for bad behavior!
Those of you who admit to watching the show (and those of you who watch it in secret and silently giggle while reading Sugar Bear's one-liners) know that middle daughter Pumpkin (not to be confused with the slightly older Chubbs) often uses negative behavior to gain recognition among her loud and crazy family members. She has complained in the past that she isn't thrilled with the attention she's garnered in her life outside of the hit reality show. While Pumpkin has complained of being the victim of bullies, it seems that she's taken on the role of mean girl.
They're baaa–ack! And no one is more happy about it than this girl. Y'all know I think the Thompson-Shannons of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo put the "real" back in reality television. Sure, they are unhealthy, and they may not set the best example in every aspect of their lives, they are certainly much smarter than they get credit for from most viewers.
June Shannon wants to make sure her daughters never feel entitled. She's often said that this crazy ride can end just as quickly as it started, so she isn't going to change how they once lived. Now in the second season of the family's hit TLC show, she seems hell bent on continuing that trend, as evidenced on last week's first episode.
Mama June the matriarch of the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo fam has just announced that there will be no more pageants. But what reason do I have to watch the show if not for June belting out "Shake It, Smoochie!" in the audience?!
Apparently Honey Boo Boo is so busy pursuing a career in reality TV that the reason she became famous – pageantry – is just too time consuming! Bummer.
