A couple of weeks ago I wrote about this crazy redneck family from TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo show. The season just ended (why are TV seasons so short these days) and I still like this family very much.
Yes, they are rednecks and they are perfectly ok with that. Well, a couple of the older girls aren’t so sure about that title, but in general the family embraces their lifestyle it seems. No, they are not perfect parents or children. But again, they don’t claim to be that either. What I do see is a family who truly seems to enjoy spending time together and that really care for one another.
While we do not see everything on TV, it did appear that the family is very open minded. June (Mama) seems to really want to pass along to all of her girls that it is ok to be who you are and for others to be who they are. During the season we saw different races on the show – I mention that because sometimes people assume rednecks are racist (yes, some are, but not all of them by far). We were introduced to Sugar Bear’s brother, Uncle Poodle, who is openly gay. The family seems to not only not have a problem with that but also support gay rights. The oldest daughter Anna, aka Chickadee, gave birth to her daughter Kaitlyn on the last episode and the baby was born with an extra thumb. I love that Mama had the attitude that it is what it is and they love her and just move on. Young Honey Boo Boo thought having an extra finger would be nice because she could grab more cheese balls! You just cannot help but laugh. As you can see the family has that live and let live attitude.
I am fortunate enough to know such a huge variety of people. Some of these people are rich, some are poor, some are nice, some not so much – they run across the board. Included in that group are a few who are truly very much like this family in their redneck ways. While you may not want to live their style of life, it does not mean it is not nice to visit sometimes and be able to completely let your hair down either. When they are as nice as what the Honey Boo Boo family seems to be it is even better!
Did you watch Here Comes Honey Boo Boo? What were your favorite moments or one-liners from this first season? Are you hoping for a Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Season Two?
P.S. I think Jeff Foxworthy needs to go visit this redneck family for sure!
