Here Comes Honey Boo Boo doesn't just inspire punch lines and pearl-clutching—it inspires gay equality, at least according to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.

Honey Boo Boo Snores During Televised Interview

Usually when someone is wearing no shoes, smudged eye makeup, and nodding off during a television interview, it's because s/he is on Intervention.

I Entered My Baby in a Beauty Pageant and Lost My Mind

"Her!? She's ugly!" I didn't say that aloud, thankfully. But I thought it—about a baby. What a horrible thing to think about an infant, even if it's totally true. Oh, how far I'd fallen from my lofty position of being "above it all," only to land in a stackable banquet chair in the ballroom of an airport hotel in… »10/02/12 4:00pm10/02/12 4:00pm

Nicole Scherzinger Wants You To Know Her Lips Were Near Chris Brown's But They Did Not Make Out

Get Your New Nickname with the Honey Boo Boo Nickname Generator

The family on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo actually has more nicknames than the Jersey Shore cast, so it only makes sense that a nickname generator would be created in their honor. And it's pretty good!
