‘Honey Boo Boo Child’ family still surprised by fame

Every year when it comes to TV, there are a couple of shows that come out of left field on cable and find a way to surprise everyone. First, it was the world of the Gosselin family on “Jon and Kate Plus 8” — and following that, we had the crazy adventures of Snooki, The Situation, and the rest of the gang on “Jersey Shore.” With the MTV show ending after six seasons, it seems as though the world is ready for a new star — and that star may very well be Honey Boo Boo Child.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” has become a runaway hit of sorts for TLC, and this has become quite a surprise when you consider that this started off as a spin-off series for the hit TLC show “Toddlers & Tiaras.”

So what does one of the biggest stars of this new series has to say? Speaking to People Magazine, Honey Boo Boo’s mother “Mama” June had the following to say about just what sort of impact the show has had on her life:

“It’s kind of surreal … It’s been an adventure seeing ourselves on TV. We’re just common, everyday people — we don’t see ourselves as famous because we’re just ordinary people.”

From a personal standpoint, we’re just as surprised as anyone that “Honey Boo Boo” has become such a success — but one of the primary reasons for it seems to merely be that it is lightning in a bottle. There is something that resonates with this family that is drawing in more viewers every week — and although there are plenty of people who hate the idea of a pint-sized beauty queen with a loud mouth, she’s the modern-day reality TV equivalent of a child star.
