Here Comes Honey Boo Boo

duck dynasty boys
 
Oh my, oh Si!  I seriously cannot get enough of the Robertson family, and I am so excited to share more of this fabulous group with the wonderful RT readers.  The fan favorite seems to be Uncle Si, although I have a soft spot in my heart for Jase.  Poor Willie seems to be the brunt of the family's good-hearted ribbing, with Phil doling out the most deadpanned advice.  Honestly, I wish other reality families would take note (cough, cough Kardashians!).
 
Today, we get to delve a little behind the scenes of the Robertsons, and the executive producer of the Duck Dynasty shares just why this show works so well.  Enough chatter from me…let's get to it, shall we?

Mama June has officially arrived as a reality star, y'all!  The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch is releasing her first book!  Scratch that, she's releasing TWO new books! 

June Shannon took to Facebook tonight to share her exciting news!  (Lauren is preordering her copies right now, I guarantee it!)  June writes, "for all of u that love me, mama june, this is for u!  I am writing a book bout our lives."  The book is due out on July 2nd.  She shared that a book tour is a real possibility, but she'll give more info as it unrolls.

Oh gracious!  Kenya Moore had better redneck-ognize.  The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is not being very Gone With The Wind Fabulous!  In fact, I'd say she's the exact opposite.  The former Miss USA 1993 is bashing on everyone's favorite seven-year-old reality phenomenon.  Remember Kenya, pretty is as pretty does…and jealousy/mean girl remarks aren't very becoming!

Of course, Alana Thompson and Mama June know the old adage, and they live it with their good deeds–even if they get criticized for it.  Not only is Kenya hating on the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo mother/daughter duo, but the the Girl Scouts of America are taking issue with the pair as well.  Do you know who couldn't care less about either one?  That's right.  June and Alana are too busy helping their community to bother with such nonsense.

As if they weren't enough for 'Merica to handle, Alana Thompson and her family are all set to internationally dominate all things deer statutes, four-wheelers, and forklift foot.  June Shannon, Sugar Bear, and Uncle Poodle are going to have people all over the world talking about the small town of McIntyre, Georgia…heck, the South in general.  Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is going global!  Frightening, huh? 

I am a huge fan of the show–and a proud Southerner–but gracious, this is a lot to digest (and not just because I had 'sketti for dinner.  Kidding–gag!).  On one hand, I'm happy for the family and their successes.  However, I hope that people in other parts of the world don't assume we're all eating pigs feet and going dumpster diving…not that there's anything wrong with those things!

Here's a question for you…given the opportunity, would you rather spend a day with the peeps from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, engaging in their small town (and often gross) shenanigans or spend a week with those Kardashian Jenners, traveling to promotional gigs around the world and being treated to overpriced tiny rapper inspired wardrobes?  I'll give you my answer later in this post.

The truth is, both families have their fair share of haters and media backlash, but they couldn't be more different.  One group is constantly looking to increase its visibility and find more lucrative gigs, while the other dynamic happened to feed their five-year-old pixie sticks and enter her in pageants.  Now, I am NOT condoning amping up a child on sugar and go-go juice so she can twirl around stage in a dress that costs more than your monthly income; however, one crew seeks out fame at every turn, and the other is dealing with the effects of having notoriety fall in their laps.  It's not the same, I don't care how you spin it!

So, Kardashians or Shannon-Thompsons?  Let's compare and contrast, shall we?

I remember a much simpler time when TLC was all about stories.  There was A Makeover Story (fun fact: The Office's Angela Kinsey and her friend from an improv group were once on it before she became famous), A Dating Story, A Wedding Story, and (the only one still left) A Baby Story.  Sure, it was a really long time ago, but The Learning Channel didn't used to be all about scary pageant moms, wedding dress salons, and Gypsy Sisters getting kicked out of hot pink stretch limos and tanning with motor oil.  The only thing I learn from the network these days is how to make Here Comes Honey Boo Boo's sketti.  I must add that my boyfriend Clinton Kelly calls TLC home, so he's bringing the class. 

Now TLC is just ninety minutes up the coast from where I reside, in what may be South Carolina's version of the Jersey Shore.  That's right!  The Learning Channel has landed in Myrtle Beach, or "The Dirtle" as many call it.  Don't get me wrong, Myrtle Beach is all kinds of fun and has a little of everything.  It's like a tiny Vegas with a Planet Hollywood, a Hard Rock Cafe, and a giant shopping/restaurant/bar/music venue that spans city blocks and includes everything from Medieval Times to a mini Grand Ol' Opry that features singers who look just like actual country stars.  Add in the helicopter tours and a shop on every corner that sells over priced beach towels, shark tooth necklaces, and hermit crabs, and you've got a little slice of heaven in the Palmetto State.  Don't take my word for it–you can now see for yourself on TLC's new series Welcome to Myrtle Manor.  Joking aside, I have friends from Myrtle Beach who are none too thrilled at the idea that this show is potentially mocking their hometown.

You have to love what constitutes a star these days…especially in the eyes of ABC execs when they are casting Dancing with the Stars.  You can't really blame them though…when Lindsay Lohan turns down the show, it may be time to call it quits.  

As always, rumors are swirling about who may foxtrotting across the ballroom.  Some of the names being tossed around are more believable than others, and some would be pure television gold if the gossip proves to be true.  Likewise, the speculation is often more exciting than the dancing itself.  ABC's Bachelorette darling Emily Maynard's name has been thrown into the mix, as well as Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch June Shannon.  How amazing would that be?
