Alana was a break out "star* on Toddlers and Tiara's, and, not for anything good. Boom, she got a summer show....I have caught a couple of episodes, and the style if life they live is really something I am not familiar with.
One thing I will say about this family,from what I have seen is, the love is obvious... Something for everyone I guess.... *reality* shows are something we, in a million years, never thought would be so popular.
Trip, with her book & tea!

Thanks for the heads up Paul,
I will have to remember to give this a very wide berth when it lands on this side of the pond. I thought most of the 'entertainment' we in the UK churn our now is dire, but I think the US have just taken the crown ;o)

Don't laugh but I love spaghetti & ketchup, I have been eating it for years and years but no butter! My hubby thinks it's gross but it's yummy. Lets hope I don't start calling D/H Sugar Bear! p/s I don't throw the spaghetti on the cabinet to see if it ready either!

A lot of popular reality shows (Operation Repo and Lizard Lick Towing) are fully re-enacted (read: faked) for safety and dramatic effect, and use actors instead of the actual persons, so they will not get sued. They even so much as admit in in their opening disclaimer.
Many other shows are re-shot because the actual incident was off-camera, or just not intense enough. Storage Wars uses actors as bidders, so that the winning bid falls to one of the "stars", as intended. In other words, not a real auction. The show has also been caught with boxes opened before the sale is final. In one shot, perfect boxes. In the very next scene, the boxes have been opened and clearly rifled through.
I have seen bits and pieces of " Honey Boo Boo "--that was all I could take. To me, it's an embarrassment for the whole country but then again, I guess there's some out there who are like the people in the show-- they'll like it and think it's great.
Personally, to me, it's about as dumb as you can get and as has been said, just another case of dumbing down of America in front of the world.
And oh yeah--- mommy and daddy supposedly are not married but have been together 8 years. His name is Sugar Bear and the other kids are not his--supposedly belong to other men--Honey Boo Boo is the little girl that Sugar Bear and Momma Bear had together so apparently Sugar Bear and Momma Bear know how to breed!!
Unbelievable what we have on T.V. today.

All the "UN"reality shows turn me off. Dancing with the stars and their tacky outfits and phony fainting stars. Stumbling around the stage in quest of a buck. Give me the "World Ballroom Competitions". Now...they can dance. I cannot believe the people swearing and using the F-bomb it is unbelievable. Not to mention the "adult" siblings on that pawn show who do nothing but whine and tattle on each other. They too use language that makes me blush. "Is that is how they conduct business? really? Then of course their father who never changes his clothes. Eeeeeeyew! The ones that upset me the most are the ones that exploit children. There ought to be laws against that. Then there is "Snooky" and her buddies who are more annoying than having a wasp caught in your underwear. I could go on and on about the foolishness called "reality" tv but I would be typing all day.
