Honey 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?
