Honey Boo Boo now has a round-the-clock body guard to protect her well-being. The new security measures are reportedly in response to an alleged plot concerning the abduction of the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo reality show star. TLC, the network behind the controversial hit television show, denies the kidnap claims, but momma June Shannon confirmed that the hired full-time bodyguards to protect Alana, the child beauty queen’s real name.
A source claims that June became terrified as supposed threat’s on Alana’s safety increased, the Daily Mail reports.
Shannon had this to say about the full-time protection detail for the young reality show star:
“Alana doesn’t go anywhere without her bodyguard! We have one 24/7 everywhere we go all time.”
An alleged insider source who consented to an interview with the National Enquirer had this to say about Honey Boo Boo’s safety:
“There was a meeting with all the teachers at Alana’s school. They have been instructed to keep an eye on Alana, and they know to report anything suspicious immediately.”
An attempted break-in at Alana’s home in McIntyre, Georgia in August reportedly prompted safety concerns for the TLC reality show star. Local police officers allegedly told the nation’s most well-known rural family that the break-in may have been criminals casing the home in preparation for a future kidnap attempt. Apparently, there is speculation that the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo reality show network would be willing to pay a high ransom to reclaim on of its most watched stars.
The Shannon family has allegedly considered moving out of their modest neighborhood, but are contractually obligated to maintain their current lifestyle, according to insider source claims. TMZ recently reported that TLC offered to help the family relocated to a safer and larger home, but June allegedly declined the offer.
The rural stereotypes promoted both by the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo television show and journalists who toss around terms like “rednecks” and hillbillies” are quite offensive to those of us who have chosen to live outside of a metropolitan environment. Choosing to raise a family in an area where you are surrounded by natural beauty and neighborhoods safe enough to leave your doors unlocked, does mean that we often have an hour drive to eat in a nice restaurant, go shopping, or attend a cultural event; but the trade-off is considered worth it by thousands of American families.
Choosing to live in a rural region does not make us rednecks, hillbillies, kin to the Shannon clan, uneducated, or frequent Walmart shoppers. Neither a television show nor a reputable journalist would resort to using negative stereotypes to describe a specific group of people based upon their race, ethnicity, or religion – the same courtesy should be given to those folks urban-dwellers mistakenly consider geographically challenged.
