People, we live in a sad world when a 7-year-old reality star is considered for such an honor as: Barbara Walters Most Fascinating Person of the Year.
In this day and age we get it, entertainment rules everything. However, when more people watched Here Comes Honey Boo Boo than the presidential debate.. that’s sad.
If you don’t know Honey Boo Boo, her real name is Alana Thompson. Her TV debut came from the show Toddlers and Tiaras, you know the show where parents dress their 3-7 year old girls like mini-prostitutes? (Sorry we’re not sorry). Well from there came Alana, her mother the “Coupon Queen” and the rest of the family on her spin-off show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
Here’s the thing, we don’t hate this little girl and her family we just don’t like and understand why this is what Americans have succumb to for their entertainment. If one little girl who drinks “Go-Go Juice” (a mixture of Red Bull and Mountain Dew, which her mom provides) to get her hyped for pageants can make it on TV than why not anyone in this country. How about we spend that money on things we actually need in this economy. Anyways we got our rant out, enough about her.
Last year for example, Barbara Walters picked the late Steve Jobs for her most Fascinating Person..job well done Barb. We bet most of you are reading this on your Mac Books and iPhone’s too, ha.
Every December Walters produces a list of 10 people, celebrities, groups, politicians, etc. and has a brief interview with each then picks her favorite. In the running this year along with Honey Boo Boo are; New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, One Direction, Ben Affleck, Olympian Gabby Douglas, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Prince Harry,Director of the CIA David Petraeus and Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James. That’s a solid list and we totally get why 9 of the 10 made the cut. Clearly she picks based on who brought the top stories and entertainment to the world this year.
Furthermore, the show airs tonight on ABC and the word around the web is that David Petraeus, the general who had an affair with his biographer, is the winner. He was also crowned the title in 2010.
Our top 3 picks from that list would have been: Seth MacFarlane, E.L. James or Chris Christie.
Betties, let us know what you think about the list, do you agree with the choices and the winner?
