'Honey Boo Boo' Canceled: Mama Dated a Sex Offender!

By Robert Paul Reyes

June Shannon  the matriarch of the Honey Boo Boo clan has only two discernible talents: Being able to consume prodigious amounts of roadkill without her rear end exploding in diarrhea or her mouth erupting in projectile vomiting, and an uncanny ability never to miss an opportunity to exploit her daughters.

You don`t expect the matriarch of a redneck family to be a paragon of virtue, but TLC did expect her to maintain a modicum of civility.

But Mama Shannon failed to live up to the low moral standards expected of a reality show star. When TLC discovered that she was dating a convicted sex offender who molested her 8-year-old daughter they kicked the obese redneck skank to the curb. 

Viewers of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" delighted in the redneck antics of Mama Shannon and her family, but they were aghast and appalled when they learned that she was putting her daughters in jeopardy by dating a sexual pervert. 

Shannon managed to stretch her 15 minutes of fame into four seasons of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo", but even the most despicable reality shows must come to an end.

Moral of this story: Celebrities can overcome the most grievous crimes and transgressions: Murder, drug addiction, adultery, but we still draw the line at child molestation or dating a child molester. 

June Shannon`s reality show career is as dead as the roadkill she enjoys devouring.
