It’s Here! Check Out the “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Show
We warned you it was coming!
Alana Thompson, aka Honey Boo Boo, first hit the small screen after starring in Toddlers and Tiaras back in June 2011. After the public got wind of her “go-go juice” and her bigger-than-life personality, the reality-show world was hooked. It doesn’t come as too much of a surprise then that she would get her own TLC show.
“You know that’s just us. For the most part that is us every day,” Alana’s mom, June Shannon explained. “We’re not all about pageants. We are a little redneckish, and we live in Georgia and that’s what people do in the country — get muddy and have fun with the family.”
The family includes her mom June, dad “Sugar Bear”, and sisters “Pumpkin”, “Chubbs”, and pregnant “Chickadee.” In the first episode, they also add another member to their family: a tea-cup pig “Glitzy.”
“She’s been asking for something similar to that pig for awhile,” Shannon said. “Alana came to us a couple weeks before the pageant, then she lost, and Sugar Bear wanted to cheer her up. Glitzy’s no bigger than about seven or eight pounds.”
“We’re just not like a boring family. We like to have fun and we do whatever pops in our head to a certain extent,” she also added. “People may call it crazy, but we just call it fun, anything to spend time with one another and pass the time.”
