Lots of horrible stuff hitting the news lately but one of the more interesting was the unusual wedding put on by Honey Boo Boo’s parents. Never heard of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo?” Well, in my opinion you are not missing anything. I’m not sure if this whole redneck family is one big spoof, or if they are for real, but they sure know how to rake in the dough. Their cable show has 2.8 million viewers, and the family gets paid $50,000 per episode.
Don’t ever judge a book by its cover. Honey Boo Boo’s Mama told the media that she has no intention of moving from her typical, low-end tract house into a luxurious estate or driving a Mercedes. She has set up trust funds for her four daughters, and has the money direct-deposited into each daughter’s account. So how did this rural George-based woman become so finance-saavy? Could be the 8th wonder of the world!!
She certainly has done her research, I have to give her that. Those lottery winners who have been mega-rich and bankrupt in the same year should hire Mama as their financial planner. Stranger things have happened.
But on the other side of the coin, money does not buy good taste. This week Honey Boo Boo’s Mama and Mama’s Sugar Bear, Honey’s father, exchanged vows followed by a backyard barbeque. And of course, the media was right there to cover this “earth-shattering” event, or was it possibly to cover the “designer” wedding outfits. Not a doubt in my mind that these clothes were purchased off a special rack at Walmart.
The bride wore complimenting sneakers with orange laces while the groom wore pants made of the same fabric as the bride’s gown. An orange vest and black shirt complete his ensemble. The flower girl, Honey Boo Boo, of course, wore a pink, yup, PINK, ruffled tutu-looking long gown which didn’t match anything. God help us if this look catches on.
