    Love the whole family – the only thing I don’t love is Sugar Bear’s chewing. Ewwww – so gross. Other than that, love the entire family, and the new little baby………..Keep being real, unapologetic, sincere, and hilarious. No matter what, your show always has me laughing as hard as I can. Love you Alana!

  • Niki

    Honey Boo Boo can make me laugh and not many things can. She is a shining light. Haters, keep hating, the family can laugh all the way to the bank.

  • trudys’gramma

    I love them and will watch as long as they are on.Thanks TLC.A winner for you and us!

  • RyanCanada

    love this show.

  • Jeff (Canada)

    I….I can’t tell…..is everyone in this thread being sarcastic? Because this show is terrible.

  • LZH (Georgia)

    YES I am a fan and I am from Georgia so I know that there are really folks THAT COUNTRY! BUT…..Now that this $$MOVIESTAR$$ lifestyle has hit them, I am MORE than sure they are putting on a little X-tra flavor for the camera. I mean come on, she did not just get pushed into the spotlight without a bit of producer encouragement. I doubt they even live in the same house now. Think about it…..really. But as long as they give us “middle class and lower class” folks something to relate to, they will keep getting paid!

    The fact that this show (and others like it) gets the ratings it does and has the following it does, tells people everything they need to know about America today.
