Shannon June, mother of our newest “Toddlers & Tiaras” muse Alana, is speaking out about feeding her daughter “go-go juice” in last week’s episode. Was I the only one who snickered at the term? Last I heard, “go-go juice” was slang for, well, female juices shall we say. We know that’s not what she was drinking. “The go-go juice is just Mountain Dew and just a hint of Red Bull,” Alana’s mother explained. Sounds healthy! All judgey-ness aside, there are lots of terms on “Toddlers & Tiaras” that mean very different things in the real world. Click through to find out what the hell those pageant folks are talking about.

Alana? Alana who? MaKenzie is coming back to “Toddlers & Tiaras,” Honey Boo Boo Child! Yay! Her Ni-Ni is gone, but she has a new flipper, a kitten named Prince and so many fans that her name is Tweeting on Twitter. Her ego must be the size of Alana’s mother’s double chin. I look forward to watching more of Mak being herself tonight, i.e. getting jacked on Pixie Sticks and dancing, throwing temper tantrums and verbally abusing her mother. What more could I dream of? Oh, Mack and Alana in one episode.

Miracles happen when you mate extreme couponing with children’s beauty pageants. From the inner sanctum of a paper towel hoard in McIntyre, Georgia, emerges our latest “Toddlers & Tiaras” muse, Alana. Part drag queen, part Southern diva, this child knows what the pageants are all about — the Benjamins, Honey Boo Boo Child! She’ll holler for a dollar or break out her tummy if need be — whatever it takes to win that crown. But really it’s her special drink — her Go-Go Juice — that that’s gonna help her win. God bless Red Bull. If only we could get Alana and Makenzie together in one episode. I’d die of spirit animal happiness.

Whoa boy, there’s no end to the “Jersey Shore” scourge. The show’s producers have now cast their sights on a new breed of hyper-constructed reality: nerd reality. Their new show, “Fandom Rising” (let’s hope this is the working title), is casting for “eight strangers for a mission to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new lifestyles and relationships, to boldly go where no fanboy or fangirl has gone before.” Keep reading »
