I am almost ashamed to say that I like this show. I don't really agree with the extreme coupon clipping but other than that I'm okay. I mean, they never have coupons for fresh broccoli and I can't use that much deodorant so what's the point?? But the little girl is so spunky and confident. Yeah, she's a redneck. Yeah, her mom is a bit rude. But I think that mom would run through fire and flames for her girls, and they know it. And that's important. I dunno. I enjoy this show and I don't find it to be a bad mark against America. It's fun. It's real. It's not me but I'd love to drink a beer with mom and dad and let my kids play with the boo-boo.
One of these days I'll stop being sensitive. Until then, I'll continue to be devastated on a daily basis. Life breaks my heart.
I shudder to think what HBB's life will be like when her 15 minutes of fame are up! From that video clip (KTLA) she appears to be getting heavier and heavier and I doubt she will continue to win any of those pageants she is in that got her all this fame!
That KTLA interview was indeed a train wreck.
I chose to look at the KTLA clip, too.
From just the promo clips, online articles, etc., it is painfully clear that this child is blowing up as though she's a balloon being filled with helium.
And the behavior?
Oh, my Lord.
Do or WOULD I expect a seven-year-old to behave like a child in, say, their teens? Or an adult?
Absolutely not. That's not going to happen in this lifetime, or any other.
However, the behavior on that clip?
No way. I wouldn't've behaved that way around adults at seven, and I'm sure quite a few of us here at the FoRT wouldn't've, either.
It wouldn't at all surprise me to hear or read articles a few years down the road about how HBB hauled off and smacked Mama, Sugar, and all the REST of 'em.

I am sure other countries have people/communities comparable to our "rednecks"; we just don't know what they are called!
