Chubbs & Honey Boo BooIf you're like everybody else on the planet, your primary preoccupation in life right now is wondering who, if anyone, will be The Next Kim Kardashian. (What do you mean, people think about other stuff?) Guess what? By process of elimination, you are now one step closer to figuring out the answer to that question -- because according to Mama June, Honey Boo Boo will NOT be the next Kim (or Kourtney, or even Khloe) Kardashian.
“My girls are not high-maintenance like them," says Mama June, referring to the Kardashian sisters. "They prefer to play in the mud than shop for new clothes. My girls are not labels. My kids love knowing who they are and know who they are, so, no.”
Wow. That's ... a pretty awesome thing for a parent to say, isn't it? I mean, isn't that the best we can do in this life, to get to the point where we not only know who we are but "love knowing who we are"?
Mama June sure does have her head screwed on straight. And wait 'til you hear what she had to say about her family's sudden fame:
“We are just everyday people. We don't consider ourselves celebrities. We still have respect for people just like we did before ... what’s so funny to me is the haters that talk about our show, they can quote just about everything. So those haters know every detail of our show and keep our ratings up just as much as die-hard fans. It's kind of funny, you hate our show so much, how do you know so much about it?”
Touché, Mama June! You better redneckognize, indeed.
What do you think a reality show about Honey Boo Boo as a grown-up would be like?
