It was only a matter of time until Alana Thompson better known as Honey Boo Boo was initiated into the world of drag. It’s a natural fit for a fierce 7-year-old who already has a stage name, wears hairpieces and knows how to read a bitch like a pro. TMZ reports that Uncle Poodle and Mama June took little miss Boo Boo to Hamburger Mary’s, a gay burger joint in Jacksonville, Florida to play Drag Queen bingo (where Mama June made her Bingo face, no doubt). Allegedly, so many Queens wanted autographs and photos that the Thompsons put out a beer pitcher as an impromptu tip jar and promised to donate the funds to a cyber-bullying charity. WERK!

I have something to live for again. “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” is returning this Sunday. If this preview is any indication, the second season should be just as happy-making as the first. Mama June reveals her fear of mayonnaise. (It looks like June and I have something else in common besides our age! I’m also a mayonnaise-o-phobe!) She says she had a babysitter growing up who made her eat mayonnaise sandwiches for breakfast, lunch and dinner. VOM. I feel the visceral pain of that. In the video above, Chubbs tries to school Mama on the virtues of mayonnaise. “It’s just like ketchup, but it’s white.” But Chubbs doesn’t eat it because she’s a vegetarian, to which Pumpkin replies: “Marannaise does not have meat in it. You cannot be a vegetarian because of marannaise … Marannaise is something you put on a sammich.” God, I missed Pumpkin. Meanwhile, Honey Boo Boo scoops marannaise into a giant bowl, inducing a panic attack in June. [Us Weekly]
Alana, Mama June, Sugar Bear, Chickadee, Pumpkin, Chubbs, and Baby Kaitlyn recently sat down for this charming Christmas portrait at Smiley’s Flea Market & Yard Sale in Macon, GA. I’m really digging Alana’s green extensions — very festive! [WOW Report]
We can always count on Barbara Walters to redneckognize greatness. On the short list of her”Most Fascinating People” of 2012 is 7-year-old Alana Thompson, better known as Honey Boo Boo. Walters called her reality show, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” a loving story:
“The relationship between Alana and her mother — that’s the story, the two of them. It’s very touching … Honey Boo Boo is not an obnoxious little girl. She’s sweet and loving with her mother and loving with her sisters… And now Anna has a new baby, and the baby has [three] thumbs — but so what? It’ll make you smile.”
No mention of all the farting and burping, but we’re hoping Babs will get around to that during the sit-down interview, airing December 12 at 9:30 p.m. I suppose I should mention that other guest will include Hillary Clinton and Gabby Douglas.
But, we know who will steal the spotlight. After the jump, some imagined moments from what has the potential to be one of the most amazing Barbara Walters interviews ever. [US Weekly] Keep reading »
How horrible, right? How could you hate an innocent little child like Honey Boo Boo? If you don’t like her, fine, or if you think she’s trashy, whatever. I see you up there on your high horse, I get it. But hate? That’s just sad.
It’s because she has a pet chicken. See that photo up there? The chicken’s name is Nugget. And PETA thinks that is the least cool thing to name a pet chicken. They want her to rename the chicken “Not A Nugget,” which for some reason just isn’t as catchy, and they want Honey Boo Boo to teach her family and all her friends that “they should be nice to chickens by not eating them.” Read more…
On the season finale of ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” Alana was briefly reunited with her former pet pig Glitzy, which was sadsies because we knew the petite pig wasn’t going home with her. Looks like Alana has moved on. She has a new bestie — a pet chicken named Nugget. Clever!
According to Honey Boo Boo’s official Facebook page, “her and nugget have [become] very attached this weekend … and it [is in] the house but has a outside house too but Alana refuses to let her sleep outside lol she sleeps inside at night in her inside cage.” I hope this best friend lasts. But I’m doubtful that Nugget will like wearing dresses as much as Glitzy. [People]
Last week, the Screen Junkies Show convinced actor Christopher Walken to read lines from “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” and the video went viral. This week, Alana and her mom June returned the favor, reading lines delivered by Walken in movies like “True Romance” and “Pulp Fiction,” as well as his infamous call for “more cowbell!” on “Saturday Night Live.” Hilarious, all around.
As you already know, Alana was in Hollywood this week for an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” which aired last night. She was hilariously adorable throughout and I couldn’t bring myself to clip just one moment. So, above, see it all, from Mama June repeatedly reminding Alana to keep her legs closed and Alana explaining her sisters’ nicknames, to a decidedly unscripted and somewhat NSFW hand/mouth gesture and an endorsement of “Marack Obama” based mostly on the fact that Mitt Romney said he prefers Snooki to Honey Boo Boo. It’s all the best, she’s so cute, and I love her so much. The end!
My favorite Southern beauty queen, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, arrived in Hollywood this week to film appearances on “Extra” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” and basically seemed to have the best week of her life. Let’s see how she spent her time in Tinseltown.
