Some of you might know her from the pageant-related show “Toddlers and Tiaras”. Those who haven’t seen the 6-year-old Southern beauty by now, will have the opportunity to meet her during TLC’s upcoming reality TV show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”, says Good Morning America.
Alan Thompson, better known as Honey Boo Boo from “Toddlers and Tiaras”, is expanding her career horizons due to her new reality TV show which will air on TLC every Wednesday. The 6-year-old star and her Georgia family want to prove viewers that getting ready for pageants is not the only activity they do and that they are a normal family who like to have fun.
Honey Boo Boo’s mom, June Shannon had the honor of presenting the show during an interview with ABC News. She told the press that people will get to see the more redneckish side of her family. Since the Thompsons are from Georgia, they all like to get involved in fun and muddy activities, so there will be plenty of amusing moments in the show.
Viewers will be able to meet Honey Boo Boo’s family, that is, her mom, June Shannon, her father, “Sugar Bear”, who is a chalk-miner and her sisters “Pumpkin” Lauryn, “Chubbs” Jessica, and “Chickadee” Anna. In the first two episodes of the show, the Thompsons went to the Redneck Games where they had fun playing all sorts of country games. While the rest of the family took party in the “Mudpit Belly Flop”, Pumpkin was busy bobbing for pigs’ feet. Shannon explained that taking part in the Redneck Games is very important for southerners. “It’s like the Olympics,” she added.
Despite the discussions that have been made in relation to Alana being exploited by her parents, Honey Boo Boo took part in another pageant and the preparations were displayed on the first two episodes of the reality TV show. Shannon defended herself against viewers’ accusations by saying that Alana doesn’t compete in pageants every weekend. Moreover, the clothes that she wears are only meant for the stage, so Alana is a normal kid when she doesn’t take part in beauty contests.
