Ami and I are both depressed that the first season of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” has come to an end. To quote June, “It is what it is.” To ease our sadness, I’ve compiled 35 of the best GIFs featuring Alana and her craaaaaazy family. You’d better redneckognize!
“I’m doing a duet record and I’m here to ask Honey Boo Boo Child to be my duet partner … She is real, she is lovely, she’s funny … She doesn’t take herself seriously. The whole family doesn’t take themselves seriously. It’s really just good fun. I love anybody who dances to the beat of a different drummer .. She is the queen. She understands what drag is. That’s what pageants are.”
– RuPaul Charles‘ official duet proposal to Alana Thompson aka Honey Boo Boo Child. Wait, my idol RuPaul would like to record a duet with my other idol, Honey Boo Boo? I need to process this bit of information. When the very short list of celebrities that I worship end up in one news headline together, I feel very overwhelmed. Obviously this needs to happen. This must happen. It MUST. Song titles are running though my head: “Glitzy Made Me Do It,” “A Dollar Makes Her Holler,” “Pageant Girl,” “Crown Chaser,” “Jealous of My Flipper,” “Shh!

It took me all of 10 seconds to fall madly in love with “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” the “Toddlers and Tiaras” spin-off about Alana Thompson, the 6-year-old pageant hopeful known for her one-liners and love of Go-Go-Juice, and her self-described redneck family.

Put a flipper in her and call her a reality star, because “Toddlers & Tiaras’” Alana (aka Honey Boo Boo Child) is getting her own show. Ms. Alana’s spinoff — working title “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” — will be coming to TLC late this summer and will follow Alana in her pageant pursuits and her day-to-day life in rural Georgia doing normal things like picking up roadkill for the family cookout. Best part: The show will also feature family members like belching mom, June Shannon, chalk-mining dad, Sugar Bear, and sisters Lauryn “Pumpkin,” Jessica “Chubbs,” and Anna “Chickadee.” OMG yessssss, please! Congrats to our little tummy-squeezing, dollar-hollering, Go-Go juice guzzling spirit animal muse ! There are various celebrations going on here in the Frisky office. I am playing with my stomach fat as we speak. But dare I say it? What about Makenzie? [Us Weekly]
