Hi, I am Aimee, and I am a 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' closet watcher. I will admit it and I am not proud of it, but I feel that it is important to be honest.
It all started with TLC's 'Extreme Couponing' starring Mama June. She was featured on 'Extreme Couponing' because she was able to buy a lot, especially toilet paper, and pay little to nothing. A few months later her daughter, Alana appeared on 'Toddlers and Tiaras'. She made headlines with her coined phrase 'A Dolla Makes Me Holla', pulling out her jiggly belly and squeezing her fat, and her special Go Go Juice that is a concoction of sugar, sugar, caffeine and more sugar. Since Alana was such a huge hit, her family was given their own show, 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo'.
I will admit, out of boredom and curiosity I watched Season 1. I am not proud of this, I did not learn anything from this and I certainly did not get any smarter from watching this show, but I could not stop! I watched week to week with my mouth gaping open and my eyes wide like saucers. What has America come to? Why is this show allowed air time? Why? Why? Why?
I skipped Season 2 of 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' because I became sick to my stomach at the thought of watching this family. The belches, the obsessive gas, the really gross games that they play that involve strange body odors, and the dirtiness of their house. I know we all get a little busy and our house can become dirty, but if you know you are going to have a camera crew at your house one would think that you would dust, vacuum, and straighten up the clutter. I am hoping they are told not to clean up their house so that the show is 'better'.
Season 3 rolls around and my curiosity got the best of me again. I relapsed and started to watch it again. The show was almost the same as the previous seasons; excessive gas, belching, nasty games, over indulging in fatty foods and pure obnoxious. The scary part about Season 3 is that it now features boyfriends of the older girls. God, help them. Let's pray they are on some form of contraception.
My intent is not to judge this family because quite honestly, they seem like nice people and they raise money for the community. In addition, I learned from the Wendy William's show that Mama June has an account for each child so that the money earned from the show will go towards their futures. I just sit, watch and wish that this family would look into a healthier lifestyle, possibly one with less sodium and sugar. It's not cute or funny, no matter your size, to shove and stuff your mouth with junkie foods. I also wish they would understand the importance of a clean home. Yes, I'm a clean freak, not an over the top clean freak but a clean freak.
'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' is over the top, but like I said before, I am a closet watcher and I can't stop watching. It's similar to watching a train wreck or a horrible auto accident. I can't take my eyes off of this show.
What are some shows that you secretly watch and are not proud of?
