Alana Thompson is the 6-year-old known as “Honey Boo Boo Child” on TLC’s “Toddlers and Tiaras.” Her huge personality and hilarious antics made her a favorite on the reality show, but she and her mother have also been the subject of several controversies this year. Alana has been seen using “pageant crack” and dancing on a bar. Yesterday, mother June Shannon defended her daughter on HLN. You’ve Gotta Watch this pageant family.
Alana Thompson’s mom sets the record straight on the notorious video showing the little girl dancing on a bar for dollars. Learn why she defends the event.
If you missed the video that caused this controversy in the first place, we’ve got it for you. This YouTube video shows Alana dancing on top of a bar. You’ve got to see what she’s wearing.
How do those tiara-wearing toddlers get so peppy onstage? Many of them inhale sugary Pixie Stix to get an energy boost. Watch to decide what’s in Honey Boo Boo’s mysterious “go-go juice.” CNN’s Anderson Cooper pokes fun at the practice on his RidicuList.
Why would TLC feature an overweight unattractive little girl for a spinoff series. I could understand maybe McKenzie Meyers or Eden but Alana be serious..........There are much more attractive, talented girls. What is TLC thinking?
You have to remember, the parents put her in this position, also this little girl is going to deal with allot of ridicule for being on this show...we really should watch our choice of wording when describing her appearance after all she is still a child and saying things like unattractive and overweight will only set her up to be bullied. Remember what we think doesn't always have to be said.
What you hav esaid may be true, but remember this kid goes to school & the parents of the kids she goes to school with are definately watching the show. The kids in Alana's class have parents who watch the show & word gets around about this family's lifestyle. I feel sorry for the kid.
Unquestionably consider that which you said. Your favourite reason seemed to be at the net the simplest factor to take into accout of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed at the same time as people think about worries that they just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and outlined out the whole thing without having side effect , folks could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thanks
I can remember cimong home on report card day and trying to put on as many extra underwear as would fit under my pants (and not show). Every C, D, or Lord forbid, an F earned my brother and I a beating with the belt. I can recall several times having to wear long pants to school for a couple weeks afterwords to hide the cuts and marks left on the backs of our legs.As a parent of three, I know first hand how frustrating kids can be. But I cannot fathom what would drive someone to treat a child in that manner.Thank you for sharing your story Mitzi.
