    Honey BooBoo

    Has anyone seen this child who is frequently talked about on morning shows? She seems pretty annoying and how did she get to be a TV personality?

    I find her to be in the same category with Jerry Springer.... and really is there nothing better to put on TV?

    It's pure voyeurism - like watching a train wreck. I don't mind laughing WITH someone, but laughing AT this young girl has made me change the channel.

    I find it disrespectful in every way, shape, and form! I sure would not let my kids watch it and think it was funny!

    What gets me is that shows like this are called reality TV; it sure isn't my reality and I can't see how they can exploit this child just to make money. She maybe enjoying it now but wait until she gets older and this is still being viewed by kids she goes to school with. "Reality" can bite you in the but if you aren't careful. The only show that I watch that is really Reality is The Biggest Loser. I used to be over weight and can relate to these people and their struggles that got them there. What they face; that is truely reality as far as I'm concerned. I don't watch this other stuff.

    I am sure her parents are laughing all the way to the bank. It is pure exploitation of a child and I hope her money is put in trust from her when is is an adult. Who is going to hire a child with no manner and etiquette? Opps what am I thinking....that is already a problem with young adults.

    I think she is being exploited by her parents, and her parents are being exploited by tv producers. I hope they save all that money for therapy, because I don't think that child is going to deal very well when her 15 minutes of fame passes, no one cares about her anymore, and she grows up enough to realize she was just a joke to many people. Poor thing!

    Tuesday today is a HoneyBooBoo marathon on TLC -- info on the first episode says she was a toddler beauty pageant contestant -- I would rather watch Sister Wives, my new tv fascination -- previews remind me of the annoying home video shows, somewhat embarrassing to watch

    I thinl this show teaches kids that it is alright to be disrespectful to your parents. After all it got her on TV. I am afraid that if any of my kids talked to me that way they may be missing a tooth or two. And yes they are all grown but know when I say enough it is enough.

    It is sad in every way imaginable. Entertainment for all the wrong reasons.

    I've never watched it and never will. Hundreds of channels on t.v. and so often there is nothing decent to watch. That is why I spend time watching old re-runs and HGTV.

    Yep, they laugh all the way to the bank! $100,000 an episode in first season; Heard it was $150,000 for 2nd season per episode. Hope they save some of it and then take etiquette lessons with some of it!!

    For better viewing, Law & Order, SVU marathon on TNT...all new episodes with new cast. Of course, I miss Elliott!!

    I have only seen her in advertising for her show. I cannot imagine wanting to watch it. The culture has sure changed in Amercia and not for the better.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I couldn't agree more lillybeck. I've never watched the show, and for the life of me I can't figure out what makes it entertaining. I saw her and her mother on Leno a few months ago and it discusted me so much that I had to turn it off. That poor child is growing up with the wrong idea about how life really is. Unfortunately it's going to come back to kick her in the backside. However, after seeing her parents and how they act I'm not surprised. At the risk of sounding judgemental, they seem to be trailer trash as well.

    Thanks for the heads up! We love HBB. Gives me a break from the trash that is going on in Washington. Exploitive? Sure! No one is forcing them to do the show. There are plenty of other nasty shows that have been on the air for too long. I get the impression this family does love each other and have fun. My guilty pleasure. Sorry.....

    HBB is no better/worse than most other shows on tv. Those housewives/sisterwives/etc are of the same genre. These shows are inexpensive to make and probably very lucrative for the producers. So many channels are constant repeats that I became a member of netflix to get some shows I like to watch. I watched the show with the dance moms and changed the channel pretty fast. Glad I have a remote so I can channel surf til I find something to watch.

    "The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America" Have you ever heard of this?
    The HBB 'phenomenon' is just following a long pattern. Read the reviews on the link for thoughts to curl your toes.

    My feelings exactly! Amazing that there are sooooo many people who find it entertaining that it stay on the air.
