Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is a genuine TV hit, garnering huge ratings for TLC and generating more buzz than a beehive. Its freshman season was so popular that the network quickly ordered up extra holiday episodes and ponied up more money for Mama June Shannon, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and the rest of the redneck family.
But if you think that ordinary people are the only one who tune in to see HBB and her sisters mud bogging and eating cheese-ball breakfasts, y’all got another think coming. True, Mitt Romney, Kris Jenner and Dance Moms‘ Abby Lee Miller don’t have kind words for the show, but other famous folk do. Many reality stars are supportive of Alana and her kin – perhaps because they know the challenges that come with letting cameras into one’s life.
Look who finds Honey Boo Boo utterly beautimous!
