Joy Behar blasts ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’; was she too harsh?

Anyone who knows Joy Behar is already well aware that she is someone with an opinion; and now, her latest target is someone who is really not old enough. (Then again, she is probably targeting the parents more so than the actual child herself.)

So what does she specifically have to say about the newest star of “Here Comes Hoo Boo Boo“? Speaking to The Huffington Post, here is what the “View” panelist had to say about the sort of woman that seven-year old Alana Thompson is going to become:

“What’s little Honey Boo Boo going to grow up to be? That’s what I want to know? … She’s going to be a fat kid; she’s going to grow up to be a big fat woman. She is, I can tell. She’s just a kid, but you see the genetics are right there. She’s going to have large boob boobs — Honey Boobs Boobs.”

While Honey Boo Boo’s show is currently a ratings smash for TLC, there is a question here, as there is with many family shows such as “Jon and Kate Plus 8,” as to how long something like this can really last. This series is really based on the humor and awkwardly-obnoxious innocence of its lead, and there are some major questions as to just how much of that will still be there as she continues to grow up and develop more and more of her own identity. We do see at least see one more season for the family, but after that it’s best to use a wait-and-see approach.
