'DWTS' Needs Honey Boo Boo Whether They Like It or Not (VIDEO)

I mean, she's already got the costumes ...
If I had it my way, the Dancing With the Stars cast would be made up entirely of the Real World Road Rules Challenge contestants, former American Vice Presidents, and the whole Honey Boo Boo family. It's too bad ABC won't consult me for casting decisions, isn't it. Even if they did, though, it sounds like my selections would be harshly disputed by some of their pro dancers. Karina Smirnoff was caught on camera leaving New York's Dream Hotel, and when asked if DWTS should lower their age-requirement so that Honey Boo Boo could star on the show, girl did not mince her words.

Karina agreed that Honey Boo Boo deserved to be one of Barbara Walters's most fascinating people this year, but that's where her love for the HBB stopped.

She went on to say that, no, they should not lower the age-limit, and no, Mama June shouldn't be on the show, either, because the cast is good just as it is, thankyouverymuch.

Aw, c'mon, Karina! Where's your sense of redneck spirit?

I'll just have to agree to disagree with Ms. Smirnoff because I think every last member of the Honey Boo Boo clan should be on Dancing With the Stars. I'd love to see them hoof around on stage in tight, glittery clothing. In fact, Honey Boo Boo herself wouldn't be so bad -- her pageant experience would give her a leg up, not to mention that damn Go Go Juice. Woo-wee! She'd dance circles around the competition. I'm happy and dizzy and nauseated just thinking about it.

    If they lower their standards to that level, I would have to stop watching the show. It's been the only thing I watch on tv for all these seasons but I draw the line at stupidity! That Honey Boo Boo crap is the worst thing I can imagine watching on tv. That child isn't going to have amy sense at all when she grows up. She's not being taught anything! So no thank you, on that one. And I have more respect for Karina now than I've ever had....thank you, Karina.:)

    Stop bashing a little girl and the mother is doing right by her family. She is doing her best so people shut your faces and stop the hate! All you're doing is being a bunch of bullies!! So I would have to say a big old YES to this. Put Honey Boo Boo on there and everyone will be surprised. She might be crazy and a little strange when she's off the stage but when those lights come on and she has to be serious and work her stuff, she gets it done.

    Dancing with the Stars is a class act. The BOO BOO clan now have a scratch and sniff show. I really think your argument is invalid.
