It gets so much crazier than caffeinated beverages though, Gasmii. There is also a rumor that June had Alana dance on a bar for dollars! That would make her an awful human being, right? Is it possible that Honey Boo Boo did her pageant routine in a college bar and it was misinterpreted? Or, did June try to pull off a Gypsy Rose Lee with her 6-year-old daughter?
If the Gypsy Rose Lee-ing of Alana is true, that would make her worse than Shirley Tempe’s mom, both of Macauley Culkin’s parents, Dina Lohan, and every other stereotypical pageant mom to date.
I can’t fathom it. But, and you have every right to judge me for this one, I really want to know the details.
The problem is substantiating the facts. I’m just not dedicated enough to find the proof that this video exists, or that it happened the way the “sources” describe it for the Enquirer. I don’t have the patience to search through court documents on the internet. I just enjoy the fruit of other peoples’ diligence.
Did June really coerce her 6-year-old daughter to dance on tables for dollar bills, or did she decide that this would be a good place for Alana to practice her act?
Either way, it makes me second guess my original perception of June. If she coerced Alana, then she is worse than a madam. If she thought that it was a way to practice her pageantry, then she is as bad as any pageant mom when it comes to me judging her (seriously, you don’t want to know what I think of pageant moms). Either way, it merits research. The problem is that I don’t have any other information available. But, since it is the internet, I assume that there will be lots more coming.
And if 300 comments has told me anything, it’s that we have some very smart (when they aren’t too busy being hilarious) readers here at the Gasm.
Jezebel has (as of this writing) the most recent story. Their tone seems pretty supportive of the family though.
The one thing I can’t find though, is any mention of the family utilizing the welfare system. That seemed the be the biggest part of the comment discussions from the last recap, so I would love it if someone could provide info on whether or not the family is actually on welfare or whether this is just an assumption based on their economic standing.
I am sure that you guys will help a sister out with your info – please provide links so that I can get all of the juicy details, and I will do a follow-up on this investigation. Next week, we will resume our normal recap format – unless something really juicy crops up and another investigation is merited.
Thanks for all of the comments and the lively discussion. And thank you for your kind words over the loss of my friend Lynn. You guys are truly amazing! I’m going to let you take it from here. I can’t wait to see what you guys have to say.
