Fame has had many a gnarled soulless form over the years, but no one makes celebritydom look as bleak and stomach-turning as Mama June. AKA what Anna Nicole Smith would look like if drawn for Ren & Stimpy. This woman should literally be imprisoned for child endangerment as years of sketti force-feeding has turned her daughter Honey Boo Boo into human Kirby. But instead of holding June accountable for abysmal parenting, we’re supposed to salute her for jumping the fat ship via gastric bypass only to watch Honey Boo Boo drown in her own ocean of skin.
The main focus of this post was going to be these abhorrent lingerie pics taken as a plotline on June’s WE TV (Television for women!!!) series From Not to Hot, but this clip from the series is so genuinely disturbing that it needs mentioning. During a mother-daughter chit chat, June explains drastic weight loss techniques to her impressionable, brain-dead, and 100% fucked for life kid. She tosses around various fat shedding remedies such as wearing a trash bag in the shower to lose water weight from perspiration. A trash bag. How fitting for Mama June. Now, how about just wrap the bag around your head and call it a damn day. June then mentions a remedy involving a treadmill, Saran wrap, and Preparation H. Those product-placement people are always thinking.
Just so we can all touch base with reality together for a second, here’s what researchers from Duke published in Pediatrics about diet fads, via NBC:
There are few long-term studies of obesity development or treatment outcomes because this work is occurring in a Biggest Loser environment, with the focus being on short-term changes in weight that we are only beginning to see as an erroneous pursuit in adult populations.
And at least on Biggest Loser they do something besides sit around in trash bags. The silver lining is of course that once all the hot weight control tips fail Honey Boo Boo, she can undergo multiple painful procedures and look as stunningly vivacious as her mom…
