“Honey Boo Boo’s Mama, June Shannon weds Sugar Bear 9 years after meeting online”
I have seen many articles and TV segments about this lately. There are a few things that are really bothering me about how the press is conveying this story:
They met in an online chat room. The amount of people today who meet significant others online is higher than it ever has been. I think this is awesome! Why would we not want other people to connect with someone they enjoy talking to. This also helps to take physical appearance out of the picture. People are falling in love because they enjoy the conversations they are having.
People have been raging on the wedding attire and decor. I think every bride should feel beautiful on her wedding day. There are many typical bridal dresses I think are ugly, but a bride needs to wear what she feels beautiful in. I don’t mind her dress at all and I think it is a very flattering cut on her. Why does anyone feel it is acceptable to say negative things about what she is wearing. Every bride has the right to feel beautiful, hop off!
Appearance vs words. I REALLY bothers me how people feel it is ok to comment about how “gross” they feel the family is. I think the family is really fucking awesome! They have so much love for each other and it shows. These were the comments June Shannon had about her wedding:
“The day was very special mostly because my girls were able to take part in it”
“I felt like it was importnat for them to see this moment and celebrate my love for Sugar Bear”
“We stayed true to our roots and made the focus on the family and my commitment to Sugar Bear. You can definitely plan an event on a budget!”
“Never settle for a man who doesn’t treat you right,” she advised. “If a guy doesn’t love everything about you, move on! There are plenty of other fish in the sea.”
“because I always want them to be themselves and surround themselves with people who love them for them.”
If every parent felt this way, we would have a much better world.
I REALLY REALLY hate when people say they are stupid. Lets all remember that she arranged for TLC to directly deposit all the money into 5 different trust funds she set up: 4 for her daughters and 1 for her granddaughter. The girls can not touch the money until they turn 21 with exceptions for school and medical emergencies.
The comments that center around this family are disgusting. The only thing you have to comment on is their weight and how it is “unhealthy”? These comments are directly coming from the fact that people can’t find any other way to criticize her parenting style and it annoys them. I wish people focused as much about their own families as they do about this family. This family is happy. Go away and let them raise their children how they want to.
Thank you! People harp on this family a lot and it’s sad when they all love each other and never really fight. I love that it’s not like regular reality dramas where everyone is hating on everyone else. I also love how humble they are when it comes to money. Rosie O’Donnell wanted to BUY them a new house and they refused, they said you can help fix ours up but we are happy where we are. The mother also took the money from the show and put it all into accounts for her girls so when they reach a certain age they do as they please, she keeps nothing big for herself only the minimum to run the household. cause ya know, terrible gross rednecks with no dignity. :/
I completely unironically LOVE this family.
Not only is June’s dress, hair, shoes, and bouquet just adorable, I’m just loving how happy she is in these pictures. I love this family so much.
this is just amazing to me. this family catches so much flack from the public but damn, they have better morals and better family ideals than most Americans, including my own family.
this woman cares for her girls, loves the man she finally married and obviously enjoys life.
how can we hate? really. some of us will never have this chance.
and besides, if my mom decides to protest my inevitable Steampunk/Superhero themed wedding I’ll just show her this and say, “remember how much you love Honey Boo Boo’s mom? Yeah? Okay. I’m doing the Steampunk Avengers.”
