Honey Boo Boo Snores at Dr. Drew
Fake-sleeper hates stardom, interviews and her fans
Just when you want to pity Honey Boo Child for being exploited by her mom and the media, she behaves in a manner consistent with preferring you to hate her.
Alana Thompson -- the spoiled, 7-year-old star of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" -- pretended to be asleep when Dr. Drew Pinsky asked for her reaction to sudden fame on Tuesday's episode of his HLN talk show.
"Oh, she's sleeping," Pinsky said as she snored in his flop-sweating face. "Is there something exciting you'd like to talk about?"
Not since "Celebrity Rehab" star Kari Ann Peniche has Pinsky had so much trouble getting through to someone.
Eventually, Thompson got to what she sees as the root of her problem. She doesn't like TV stardom, she told Pinsky, "because fans come up to me and I hate it."
After seven pretend snoring cycles, Thompson pretended to awaken -- only after mama June Shannon reminded her it was "so we can get this done so we can go" -- but not before taking an air slap at Pinsky's face.
Check out the video:
Chances are, she won't have to worry about that too much longer. So Thompson had better apologize to Dr. Drew, because she may seriously need his services in a dozen years.
"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" will return to TLC for holiday specials around Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
So the truth is Little Honey Boo Boo doesn't want stardom. She is only seven and there are haters who want to criticize her and her family. She is acting out. Most of the comments I have read are criticisms about overweight people. If it were easy to lose weight everyone on the planet would be thin. Give the kid a break! If you cannot say anything nice then close your hatred-spewing mouths.
I've watched only 3 shows and that is because I wanted to give it a fair assessment. Why TLC would put a child who is difficult to understand when she speaks on her own show is beyond my comprehension. When I have to struggle to understand someone who is supposedly speaking English is when I ink them off my list of "Things to Watch This Week". And doh't just attribute this to a "Southern accent". I've lived in the South and still have relatives living in the South and I have NO difficulty understanding them. These people are what gives the rest of the South a bad reputation for being uneducated.
What a fat little spoiled brat! and her Mom should be spanked too!
I see alot of negative comments about this show,and mention of others that seem to be part of a fad. These shows would not be there if they didn't have an audience. The good part of it is that their audiences are unable to stay focused on them, so the shows fall out of favor. The unfortunate part of all this is that it invades the mainsteam society and we become a part of it. This is evidenced by our uncontrollable urge to click on the article, and comment, even if we never watched any of these shows. I can only hope that people will find other forms of entertainment,but, as we all know the world is made of individuals all following their own paths.
