Honey Boo Boo Gets Kate Gosselin’s Bodyguard & He Wonders What He Did to Deserve This

Stuck in Reality 21

katehoney boo booHoney Boo Boo is clearly moving up in the world. The pint-size pageant queen needs not one, but two bodyguards to follow her around at all times. And one of said bodyguards used to be the guy assigned to protect Kate Gosselin and her gang of eight.

That's right! Boo Boo got Kate's hand-me-down muscle Leonard Lucas. My first thought? What in the world has this poor dude done to deserve this?!

Going from Kate to 7-year-old Alana, Momma June, Sugar Bear, Chickadee, Pumpkin, and Chubbs seems like a serious downgrade, doesn't it. Kate was no picnic, of course. She was known for her snarky, snide, self-important, bossy attitude. But at least he could follow that family to cool places like New York, a tropical island vacation or two, Disneyland.

From what we've seen of Honey Boo Boo's world thus far, the itinerary is likely to be belly flopping in the mud at the Redneck Games, dips in a "flesh eating bacteria disease" infected river, protecting the perimeter as Honey Boo Boo gets a spray tan in her front yard, and the occasional beauty pageant.

An insider says that the family constantly has photographers at their Georgia house and they like to go out to eat at all hours of the day and night, so having two guards on duty is much needed security. I can just imagine what these men are thinking. I am sure they had no idea this is what they were signing up for when they decided to become celebrity bodyguards. They must totally hate the guys that get to watch over Beyonce or J.Lo. Oh well, maybe their next assignment will land them at a penthouse apartment and not the Piggly Wiggly.

Do you think two bodyguards for the Honey Boo Boo family is overkill?

I don't really know who Honey Boo Boo is.  So if they signed up for famous people, I guess I feel sorry for the bodyguards. lol crazy

lol I would think Momma June could do a good job of protecting  herself and her family ifanyone tried to mess with them lol I don't know if I feel sorry for them. They aren't your typical glamours movie starts, but they actually are good people. The Dad is a volunteer fire fighter and the mom does all the couponing but donates a lot of the stuff that she gets to the community. Maybe it will be a nice change for them to not have to deal with people who are rude and just care about themselves for a change. Now they will just have to get used to foul smells and cursing lol :)

I honestly would prefer Honey Boo Boos family to Kate! Lol!

I don't think it's over kill. With all the strong opinions posted all over and how many crazy people are jn the world. She says in the show her BF works all the time so she is home alone with now 5 kids! I would want protection too!

Lol! Yeah it's strange... But I wouldn't be surprised if they get harassed a lot so they may need the protection.

If I saw this family coming I would go the way.

It is their job, so they should do it. If her parents think that she needs the protection then she should get it.

overkill for sure.

I guess I'm the only person who doesn't even know who Honey Boo Boo is. Seems I haven't missed much.
