While it may be all fun and games for Here Comes Honey Boo Boo viewers, the professionals on The Doctors see a totally different story.It looks like The Doctors spend the episode digging through the family's fridge and offering her healthier eating options -- which, judging from the clips, looks really, really awkward.
"What's ironic, and something that I've learned in the emergency department, is the common culprit in a lot of these things is what you're eating," Dr. Travis Stork shared in a sneak peek at Wednesday's all-new episode. "And when I looked in your fridge, Mama June, I'm sorry but I didn't see anything in that fridge that's going to either improve Alana's weight or decrease inflammation in her body."
Another doctor took an even more direct approach.
"She is an obese nine-year-old," Dr. Jennifer Ashton proclaimed after reviewing Alana's lifestyle. Guess Honey Boo Boo's sketti isn't the best dinner choice after all.
Seriously, there's a need for something to be done. I've read elsewhere that the girl is 4'9" and weighs 125 pounds. And you don't have to watch much of the show to see that the types of foods that the family routines eats are unhealthy. It's just unfortunate that this has to take place in the public eye.
But I think that's the point. Distract fans from the sex offender story by trying to rehabilitate the family's television reputation by tackling their weight issues. But that's my cynical nature.
There's another "Honey Boo Boo" story coming out tomorrow, but I want to separate these two stories.
