Here Comes Honey Boo Boo premiered on TLC Tuesday night and apparently there were a lot of mixed reactions to the Southern child who made her début on Toddlers and Tiaras.
While there's no doubt that Alana Thompson, who goes by the name of Honey Boo Boo Child, is a cute little girl, does she really need her own reality show?
Apparently, some people love the feisty personality and crazy catch phrases that Alana comes up with but others think that the family of the 6-year-old pageant queen is making Americans look stupid.
As if Jersey Shore hasn't done that already? Please, you know they have.
The unconventional reality show will surely draw a large audience but are those watching enjoying the family for their personalities and their fun-loving lifestyle or because they want to mock them and make fun of them?
, a 6-year-old can be affected by harsh criticism just like anyone else, so the question is: Why would Alana's mom want to put her in the position to be mocked or teased?
Did you watch the show? What did you think?
I don't think this helps but we gave them a show so we're already stupid. You can't do some dumb shit knowingly and get mad when you're called dumb.

Where is Elliott Neese? Is the " (...) " star missing or fired from his job as captain of the Ramblin' Rose? In a story today carried by the (...) , the (...) Channel cast member, the youngest skipper among the dueling captains was not among other members gearing up for a rugged season in the Bering Sea.
Scott Campbell, Jr., aka Junior, the captain of the Seabrooke said this about the missing "Deadliest Catch" star:
"Elliot should be here. He should be ready to go."
Northwestern captain, Sig Hansen, who is convinced Neese may have been fired from his job didn't hold back any punches in what he thought of the young captain's MIA status from the premiere of
"In all honesty, Im kinda not surprised Elliott isn't here this year .. No owner is going to let a guy run a boat and not produce. You're going to lose your job."
It's no secret Neese ( (...) ) had a hard time of it last season. He struggled to land a bounty of crabs and was tested on the sea every step of the way. If it wasn't unfriendly weather or uppity deckhands, it was his mounting financial problems back at home. His woman even threatened to leave him.
Well, here's a spoiler:
The "Deadliest Catch" star is not missing after all. Discovery, in a press release about Season 9, wrote this on its website:
"The youngest skipper in the fleet, Elliott Neese,
, is all in this year as he returns as the owner of his own boat, the F/V Saga. With more than $1 million in the hole and 10 bucks to his name, the stakes have never been higher for Neese."
And if that's not enough proof, the troubled captain took to Twitter and dispelled rumors about him not making the show by the premiere deadline.
"...don't believe everything you see it a tv show there has to be drama and conflict and resolution its tv," the (...) read on his timeline Thursday.
With the "Deadliest Catch" star not missing, what is in store for him next? Will he still helm the Ramblin' Rose? Things that make you go, Hmm?

Man, 70, Marries 15-Year-Old Sold For $20,000 (
( (...) ) A 70-year-old man has married a 15-year-old girl in Saudi Arabia, human rights workers confirmed on Tuesday.
The 15-year-old was sold to her husband.
CNN interviewed the man, who said the girls parents sold her to him for the equivalent of $20,000.
The marriage came to light when the man complained to a local official, saying the girls family had taken her back and hed been ripped off.
He refused to provide his name to CNN.
His account is countered by human rights workers looking into the case.
They believe there was a fight between the teen and the man, and she ran back to her family.
Her father is believed to be Yemeni, her mother Saudi.
She is from Al-Hurath village in Jizan province, in southwestern Saudi Arabia near the border with Yemen,
Thats according to Dr. Hadi Al-Yami, the head of the Asir branch of the Human Rights Commission, a Saudi government supported organization.
The commission sent an investigator to the courthouse in Al-Hurath, Al-Yami said.
The organization is planning to offer the girl as much help as shes able to receive, particularly legal help in case the courts require her to formally dispute the marriage.
Some groups, such as the HRC, advocate for setting a minimum age for marriage, though theyve not said what age.
The group proposes that anyone younger than 18 who wants to get married should get a courts consent.
Extremely conservative religious scholars have opposed a law that would govern the age to marry.
Messages on social media reflect frustration with the opposition.
Prominent Egyptian activist Mona Eltahawy tweeted, "Its only when theres enough public outrage that we can fight #childmarriage. We are not angry enough to help that 15 y/o &
Prominent Yemeni activist NoonArabia tweeted, "#ChildMarriage is a violation of human rights (...) .. #RunAwayBride #PTs."
Other Egyptians took to the Web.
Kareem Bassem tweeted, "#ChildMarriage is a result of dehumanizing female humans and degrading them to treats in alleged paradise. Fight dehumanization!"
Dr. Suhaila Zein al-Abedin, a member of the Saudi National Association for Human Rights, also government-backed, is outraged about the case.
"When you consider the very large difference in age, it looks more like this was not a marriage, but like the girl was sold," al-Abedin said. "The girls parents need to be held responsible for this."
