gameshowhost: I just want to know how much her disgusting blob of a mom has pissed away.


From what little I gathered, she's splitting it up equally among the kids in college funds.  I hate how these people are considered famous, but maybe she isn't that stupid after all.

Look.  Being the butt of a bunch of cheap jokes and the catalyst for so many heartfelt yet meaningless "World is ending/America is Bad/Idiocracy is real" proclamations actually ended up paying well.

farking good.


(Complaining about the latest popular thing is just another form of clinging to popular things.)

She's set for life. Do you have any idea how much sketti that buys? About 15-20 years worth. That's why she's set for life.
 
2013-03-09 01:55:08 AM
Feel terrible? I feel nothing.

But I will feel smugly satisfied when I read the headlines that Justin can't quit his coke habit, Taylor gets herpes from Derek Jeter and Honey Boo Bo dies of a massive heart attack at the ripe old age of 11.

THIS BAH GAWD!

Seriously, I could never... EVVVVVVVVVVVVVERRRRRRR sell out my family like that.  Its why when I detect my Warhol-mandated fifteen minutes trying to force itself upon me, I quickly say out loud that I yield it to somebody more desperate than I.  Unfortunately, we get a Kardashian or Honey Boo Boo forced upon us.

Splitting it up before or after she takes the vig?

Why should I feel terrible? Either she or her family will blow through those millions by the time she reaches 18. Then those creepy "X days until she's legal" countdowns will essentially be countdowns until she's doing legal porn to make up her missing fortunes.

Do those countdowns still happen? I thought they imploded when the Olsen twins grew up.

hope she beats the odds, gets a good education and has a wonderful life. still won't watch the TV show.

I like Honey Boo Boo and her clan. They make me laugh. I think they are an incredibly funny and loving family.

I have no hate for any of them or for anything they do, although I think some lines are scripted or encouraged.

im more angry at the schmuck i work with who gets paid more than me.  so this twat essentially won the lottery. i have no problem with that.  it sucks, sure, but its nothing more than dumb luck

Recently I remember seeing countdown timers for Emma Watson and, the more obscure, Saaya Irie and Elly Tran Ha, so I'm sure people are still doing them.
 
2013-03-09 02:30:40 AM
I don't mind because I make money by not being like that family.
 
2013-03-09 02:33:21 AM
Her parents will handle the money before she's 18, right?
If so, she'll never see a penny.
 
2013-03-09 02:33:42 AM
Yes, yes,  but how well did this sort of thing work out for Elvis Presley, Howard Hughes, River Phoenix, Keith Moon, Marilyn Monroe, Kurt Cobain, Whitney Houston, Janis Joplin, John Belushi.......

Not to mention whatever income taxes are paid for this revenue.

And fees for agents, personal staff, accountants....

Be careful what you wish for.

Honey boo Boo has a college fund? Isn't she a special needs kid? It's hardly required, although if she were male, I'd think her a lock to get a football scholarship at Alabama.

Is it really "Reality TV", when the cast are paid salaries? Seems to me if you're throwing money at someone, suddenly they stop being themselves in front of the camera, and start doing whatever the producers want instead. That isn't reality, it's "Trained Seal TV".

Honey Boo Boo is going to need it.

That child has all the classic facial features of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, which means she's going to be as useless as all git-out when she's too ugly to have a camera pointed at her in a few years. And then she'll need every dime her fat mother hasn't drank away.

What do you mean "when she's too ugly"?

Y'all won't be laughing in 2017 when the results of the joint Harvard/Johns Hopkins research project net the Nobel Prize in Medicine for Dr. J. Shannon Thompson when, sans fat suit and makeup, she presents the results of her study "Obesity and Southern American Buffoonery: The Last Guilt-Free Stereotypes" where she and her research team break down the online and on-air reactions of an entire nation to the antics of the actors playing her family on a reality show.

Ok, maybe y'all won't be laughing in 2017 when she has to sell her feet on eBay after the 'beetus got 'em.

A camera can change the very thing it's trying to capture simply by being there. The viewer alters reality by viewing it, and science seems to hint that this may even occur at the most fundamental physical levels of reality.

This is nothing new to any cameraman or producer worth his salt. Money doesn't even need to enter into it, but in the case of reality tv, money is certainly another altering element.

Money in this case might actually provide us with a more merciful buffer from what real reality tv could be. To say, it could be keeping the horror of what can happen when real life is exposed and/or altered by a cameras presence and instead provides us with a lighter superficial facsimile of reality.

It's been joked before, but imagine if survivor really was a matter of survival. Or if the children on Jersey Shore weren't putting on a show and really did act like that all the time. We can laugh at them knowing it's part act, could we if we knew it wasn't? If so, how long would it take before it really stopped being funny? (Even with our lighter take on reality, I'm wondering if we are approaching that point now, even with the designed entertainment buffer.)

'An American Family' (and the recent movie/documentary hybrid of it, Cinema Verite) touched on that very real vein and it isn't a pretty place. I'd almost prefer the crap we call reality tv (not that I actually watch any of it)... because when we turn on the tv we (usually) want entertainment, not a humbling rollercoaster of emotion that exposes us in a way that can be so raw and uninvited.

As the producer of 'An American Family' (who later became rather reclusive, running from his creation) sadly and reflectively said in an interview back when they were making 'Cinema Verite' "What have I done? What do I do?" He paused. "I've never resolved it. I didn't know what I had wrought. I still don't."

If regular tv was the tourtorture de force that true examinations of reality can be (plenty of films out there that are just so hard to watch they are so brutally honest and naked) you might find yourself begging for Honey-Boo-Boo.

Whatever it is, for 50k an episode, sign me up! I'll balance a ball on my nose all day long for that kind of coin.

I'm fairly convinced filming my antics wouldn't attract nearly as many eyeballs for the advertisers as her and her family does, so why should I be jealous?

You know what, I'm convinced that TLC will put anything on air as long as its mindless and degrading. How about "People On Welfare", where we can watch and get enraged by welfare queens using tax money to pay for booze and nose jobs. Or "Life In Florida", where we drag a $100 bill through a trailer park and film whatever grabs onto it. I can hear the dialog now: "Skeeter, put yer mother****ing python back in its tank and put a cinder block on the lid this time. It done crawled into the baby's crib again." Or how about "Citizen Stupid", where we dump a bunch of uneducated idiots in the middle of nowhere and instruct them to build a society. Or how about a show where we take groups of people and have them build society based off of several forms of government. One being a Athenian direct democracy, one being base off communism, one being a dictatorship, and one being based off of anarchism. Then watch how they respond to different challenges, such as a food shortage, or a windmill breaking.

True. The way she feeds herself and the kids is nauesating, but putting $$ aside for her kids (not to mention they seem generally happy) and devotion to her family makes her not-so-bad in my book.

At least there isn't a chance of her getting Jon-Beneted. She's got that going for her. She could also have success being a real life Miss Piggy. People should start calling her Muppet Baby. Also, as someone mentioned earlier, the mother really isn't as dumb as she looks. She does split the money up equally, and they can't touch it unless for medical emergencies until they're 21. You can't really call it a 'college fund', because let's be realistic; college isn't cut out for everyone. At most it could support them and the many kids they pop out. Except for Honey Boo Boo. Maybe her 'medical emergency' will be gastric bypass surgery.
