It's definately as real as you can get! I'm a West Virginia native and current resident. Not in the Boone Co. area. But, most of us know people like them and have a few in our own families. It's real! Believe me.
Now that you've heard what they did with the corpse... do you still want to say that most people know people like them or have a few in their family? lol Probably not - lol
yeah, alot of people know people that act just totally wild but this bunch takes it to a whole different level

That's really hard to believe!! C'mon! Does anyone know why Kirk's father shot and killed that couple? And does anyone know how Norma Jean died?

it may be hard to believe but it is true. Just ask Mr Handley or anybody that was a cop at the time, many people around here know about it.

Wow! That's pretty crazy to say the least. Maybe that's what they thought their father would have wanted though, idk. It hurts me to know that Mamie did something to hurt Bertie Mae :( Very disturbing. Actually, there is a person in my own family who also threatened to kill their own mother over pills! I dont' snort pills or collect a free check for anything, but i'm very familiar with this type of lifestyle.

"It's called a wake", yes well most wakes do NOT include having the dead body propped up against a wall, a joint in one hand...
Kirk's baby was taken away from her because she did drugs through her entire pregnancy. She she not have custody of either of those children, no one in that family should. The smoke, do drugs, drink right in the faces of those poor children.
The producers gave the White family say in the final movie cut...and after the pre-sceening were happy with they way they were portrayed.

All of Boone County should be embarrassed about the Whites and the way that Boone Countians portrayed in these movies. The abuse inflicted upon their poor children is criminal, but sadly, all of their children ultimately become just like them (except for one great football player from Van who knew at a young age that he had to get away from them). These children have no chance of having a decent life, all they know is drugs, crime, violence, and sex. The children need to be taken away from them at birth before they ruin more lives. Does anyone believe that they should all be sterilized to prevent the spread of their moral depravity?

The producers of the film have set up an education fund for the children who appeared in it.

So maybe something good can come of it.

You gunna say that to my face? Cause that's all you keep saying.

No one here is playing god. There are good upstanding people in society those who work for a living, who take care of their children, then there are shit faces like the Whites who do neither. It's not about playing god. It's about knowing what's right in this world and knowing what's wrong.

Do ya get it? Try to defend them all you want, I think it's funny.

I know what a 'wake' is, we have them here. when I was young, it was very common to have at wake at home, but, the funeral home brought the body to the house - we didn't steal it. and it is a good thing to actually celebrate someone's life when they die but that does not mean being disrespectful. This was just a full-blown, wild party with all of them just getting wasted.

I just watched the movie-The Wild and Wonderful Whites of WV.
This is my opinion..and you know what they say."we all have one"-
I dont think people walk away from seeing this and think this represents all of WV..I didnt, at least. The Whites embraced their lifestyle, as difficult as it seems to be, they remained true to who they are with no excuses. That is about the only positive thing I can say.
I dont feel people should publicly dog this family. They participated in the film and opened up their lives for all to see..The Whites cannot complain when now. People will speculate, it's part of the deal with putting it all out there.The thing that was hard for me to take in was the Children being subjected to a lifestyle they did not sign up for. Pitiful. I have no doubt all the lil ones are loved, but, the basic need of being safe and cared for was not shown at all!!! Being around drug use, guns, cursing, drinking and fighting?? really? I saw "Mamie's" Myspace page and a blog-post from Nov. stated she needed money for Thankgiving Dinner,Heat,food,hot water and Christmas money for the kids. She was asking for help. Isnt this all basic stuff? Where is the money given from the Film? Not many people will donate to people who are drug users..knowing NOT how their money will be spent. It makes it hard to have compassion for the adults.
The cycle with the Whites needs to end. Their life choices directly effects those Children!!
