Joy Behar: Honey Boo Boo Will ‘Grow Up To Be A Fat Woman’
Does the apple fall far from the tree? If you ask “The View’s” Joy Behar it doesn’t when Honey Boo Boo is concerned. Everyone’s favorite sensationalized 7-year-old beauty contestant has been a topic of discussion for weeks now, as is her mother. From celebrities to socialites it seems like no one can get enough of the train wreck TLC reality show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.”
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Behar took it a step further and predicted that the future may be grim for Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, if she doesn’t clean up her act. Behar counters the pop cultured fascination with Honey Boo Boo:
“What’s little Honey Boo Boo going to grow up to be? That’s what I want to know?” Behar asks. “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.”
Although Behar lacks tact in her statement; she does have a point. Alana who’s known for being a proud “redneck” and chugging “go-go juice,” a mix of Red Bull and Mountain Dew, consistently refers to herself as “fat” on the show, which says a lot about how the 7-year-old perceives her image and the world around her. Even socialite Kris Jenner had something to say about the show, calling Honey Boo Boo’s mother, “classless.”
It shouldn’t be ignored that mother June Shannon has initiated a weight loss system in the household, but Behar still says that it isn’t enough for Alana’s health issues. “Wait until she grows to a 400 pound woman!”
