‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ preview: When life gives you lemons…

The bizarre sensation known as “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” keeps going strong, and on Wednesday night Alana Thompson’s family is going to find yet another way to turn something normal into something that is really pretty shocking: making lemonade.

Apparently, Honey Boo Boo’s “Mama June” has a very interesting recipe in order to create the perfect lemonade: pour as much lemon juice and sugar on something as humanly possible. Then, if it doesn’t taste right, add more until it does. She does make a comment in here that this is probably going to give someone out there diabetes, but we are not quite sure that it sticks.

In watching the clip below of this activity, we are in many ways reminded of why this series is so popular: it’s pretty much the perfect storm of everything that TLC likes. We have the story of a large family (think “Jon and Kate Plus 8”), beauty pageants (“Toddlers & Tiaras”), and some “Extreme Couponing” all rolled into one. The only thing that we are really missing her is someone having multiple wives or having some sort of strange addiction. Does that mean that it is worthwhile entertainment? It’s all in the eye of the beholder. “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” is similar to “Duck Dynasty” in that it is a reality show that feels like a sitcom, but we actually like the latter show more mostly because it feels a little less like we are laughing at some kids who simply do not know any better.

Would you ever drink any of this lemonade June is making in a million years? We want to hear some of your thoughts with a comment below! If you want to hear some rather shocking comments recently made by Joy Behar about “Honey Boo Boo” you can do so over at the link here.
