Alana Thompson, Honey Boo Boo, Pretends to Snort Cocaine

Hey, you know who we haven’t heard from in awhile?  Alana Thompson aka Honey Boo Boo , and her train wreck disaster of a family. Maybe that is because they haven’t really done very much lately. Or in life in general.

Well, Alana decided to throw her family back into the limelight by doing an act on live camera that was sure to raise the ire of any who watched it.  And then promptly have us talking about her. Like I am about to.

Unfortunately, I can’t go back to an easier time when memories of “go-go juice” and “sketti” served in the finest of Cool-Whip containers meant that life was simple, back when one’s only concerns were exposing forklift foot if a water park’s rip-roarin’ slide proved too much for a pedicured ankle sock or whether a scheduling conflict with the local railroad would create a loud, late night train situation. Nope, I can’t hop in my Kuntry Store purchased time machine and unlearn all I now know about the folks of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Thanks June Shannon.

When TLC’s cash cow was at the height of popularity, the line was clearly drawn before those who (like me) found the family’s ridiculous antics equally endearing and disgusting and those who thought the show’s fans were verging on insanity. Sure, the six-year-old beauty queen wannabe Alana Thompson was sassy to the point of rude, but her one-liners were everything. The family was open about their past struggles (June, a grandmother in her mid-thirties has four daughters from various incarcerated men), but who am I to judge? Plus, what’s not to love about Sugar Bear?
