Rosie Pope Rips on 'Honey Boo Boo'
It's time to count the ways Mama June is “misguided.”
You better redneckognize – Pregnant in Heels’ Rosie Pope has some pointers for Mama Boo Boo Child. (You, too, Sugar Bear!)
“There are many things that can be said about this show (like what a horrible idea it is to dip a baby’s pacifier into a Mountain Dew energy drink…),” the mommy concierge says on her site about the TLC smash hit that inspired countless Halloween costumes. “But there is one thing that struck me and seems particularly relevant to what I do: it seems as though Honey Boo Boo and her sisters are loved, but think I would be remiss if I didn’t say how misguided the adult figures in her life appear to be.”
So you’re not a fan of serving up go go juice and sketti, Rosie? “Love is without a doubt the most important thing a child needs. But, children also need role models and it is a parent’s responsibility to be as well educated about parenting as they can possibly be,” the three time mom shares her point of view.
Giving credit where credit is due, Rosie provides some praise for the Southern matriarch, June Shannon. “One could argue that Honey Boo Boo’s mom probably feels as though the example she puts forth is perfect, and that she would like her daughter to follow in her footsteps. After all, she has seemingly managed to get the little girl a career and potentially a brand (pageant dresses anyone?) that could perhaps pay for a college fund (if I’m not being too optimistic).”
But there’s a flip side when you holla for that dolla. “I think it important as a parent to be adult enough to recognize the things about ourselves we do not want our children to repeat.”
