Behold the Thompson family’s genius Halloween costume idea. In case you need help identifying them all: Honey Boo Boo was Kris Jenner, Mama June channeled Kim, Sugar Bear transformed into Bruce Jenner (and managed to look more manly), Anna did her best Kourtney, Jessica killed it as Khloe, Pumpkin slayed Scott Disick, baby Kaitlyn became Penelope Disick and Uncle Poodle rocked the Kanye costume (sans blackface).
“We decided to dress up like the Kardashians because everyone seems to compare our family to them. Now we’re just the redneck version,” explained Mama June. Well played, Boo Boos. [People]
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!

“You don’t have to do a lot of makeup or whatever. Just take care of yourself, take pride in how you look. There are some days I look homely like hell, but beautimous comes within yourself and if you’re happy with yourself, that’s all that matters.”
– I’ll admit that Mama June from “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” would not be the first person I’d expect to dole out a great beauty tip. I mean, this is a woman who has neck crust. But I can admit when I am wrong! Mama June’s tip to a viewer on a recent Facebook live-chat on how to be “extra beautimous” is actually balls-on correct. You’ll never read this in Allure magazine, but a pretty face or slim physique mean nothing — nothing — if you aren’t happy with yourself. Beautimousness does come from within! [TLC]
Admit it, despite your Grizzly Bear records and your taste for artisanal cheeses, you friggin’ love “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” Mama June and Alana and Uncle Poodle are seriously addictive, and we are so glad there’s a new season of the show on right now. But TLC, being the little buggers they are, aren’t giving up all the goods — they’ve got a clip from the show under lock and key, and they won’t release it unless the Twitter hashtag #booboosback becomes a thing. Once the container of cheeseballs is filled up, the clip will unlock. You want more Alana, Pumpkin and Chubbs, right? So what are you waiting for — get on ye olde Twitter and work that hashtag magic.

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 »
Ladies! Has it really come to this? Mikey Day and Trevor Moore of “The Whitest Kids U Know” appeared on “The Tonight Show” and challenged each other to pick up a girl using only lines from Masterpiece Theatre mini-series “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” And sadly? It worked! I guess all a girl really wants is for a guy to talk about vajiggle-jaggle with her. We have really lowered the bar. [YouTube]
