'Honey Boo Boo' Family Loves Fame So Much, They Don't Care About Lawsuits (VIDEO)

Honey Boo Boo lawsuit

Hey remember when the Honey Boo Boo family was harmless entertainment, admittedly unrefined but sort of charming in their own sketti-eatin’ way? Yeah, me neither. The entire Boo Boo franchise seemed tarnished beyond repair, what with Mama June’s molestation scandal that went through several increasingly unpleasant reveals before I just had to cover my eyes and turn away from the tabloids altogether.

Well, they’re baaaaaack … or I suppose it would be more accurate to say they never really left. Honey Boo Boo was recently featured on an episode of The Doctors when they staged a public “health intervention” — because hey, why not inform a nine-year-old girl of her obesity via a television show? — and while I guess you could argue they participated in that for all the right reasons because they really are worried about Alana’s health, I’m thinking, based on this image alone, that wasn't really the case:

"Yeah, can we get a shot of the kid chowing into some fried chicken while the hosts look on with expressions of manufactured concern? Great."

Alana is also recording her first song and music video, which Mama June announced via this very shouty Facebook update:

JUST WANTED TO SHARE ONE OF THE EXCITING THINGS THAT WAS RELEASED TODAY WE HAVE A SONG/MUSIC VIDEO COMING OUT WITH PUMPKIN AND ALANA AND A AWESOME GUY ADAM WE HAD A BLAST RECORDING IT AND WAS COMMENTED ALANA DONE GREAT FOR HER FIRST EVER ON A STUDIO I’M VERY PROUD OF HER AND PUMPKIN AND WE DONT HAVE RELEASE DATE YET BUT WILL LET Y’ALL KNOW IT’S A GREAT IT’S A GREAT CATCHY SONG WE WANT TO THINK OUR TRUE FANS WE APPRECIATE OUR SUPPORT AND ALWAYS LOVING US THERE IS MORE EXCITING THINGS TO COME.

The video includes Mama June, sister Pumpkin, and dad Sugar Bear dancing to a dance move called the “Honey Boo Boo Bop,” and it’s basically exactly as horrifying as you might imagine:

Wow. Just ... wow.

Still, while the family appears to be going full steam ahead on their various entertainment pursuits, TMZ reports that Honey Boo Boo’s former network TLC has issued the family an ultimatum stating that they cannot work for another entertainment company until their contract runs its course at the end of May. Apparently they were paid for the season that never aired, plus tutoring and health insurance.

I guess you have to admire this about the Boo Boos: they sure are tenacious. Where some families might have decided their bad press and the looming threat of a lawsuit should be enough reason to lay low for a while, these folks seem to have locked their formidable jowls onto their 15 minutes of fame and are holding on for dear life. Maybe they just figure the legal fees are worth whatever royalties they get for the "Honey Boo Boo Bop."

Do you think TLC will be able to stop the Honey Boo Boo family from continuing their reality lifestyle?
