≡ What Has Honey Boo Boo Been Up To All These Years? ➤ Brain Berries


It’s been many years since we saw Alana Thompson, aka Honey Boo Boo, in the spotlight. In case you wiped the story from your memory, there was this woman called Mama June, who became quite popular thanks to Alana, one of her four daughters, known to the whole world as Honey Boo Boo.


In 2010, the American television channel TLC launched the TV show “Toddlers and Tiaras” about participants in children’s beauty pageants. One day a 6-year-old baby girl and her 32-year-old mother appeared on the show and somehow stole the audience’s hearts. Young Alana did not seem to fit into the beauty queen’s standards, which did not bother her mom, who kept actively promoting her daughter in different pageants. Honey Boo Boo’s charisma was unmatched among the contestants, especially when she had those contagious laughing fits. The showrunners were not even mad about the fact that Mama June constantly treated Alana with cocktails of soda and energy drinks, even going as far as saying she’d add alcohol if it would help Alana perform better. Mother of the year, right there.

Mama June clearly came to the “Toddlers and Tiaras” to get some easy money, and she succeeded. When the world saw Honey Boo Boo in that cute dress, all covered in makeup, the ratings of the show skyrocketed. The viewers loved watching the chubster and her eccentric mother so much that the TV channel launched a reality show about their life. Soon after, their house was riddled with cameras, and for two whole years, every step they took was planned by the scriptwriters. The show was canceled in 2014 when June’s new boyfriend was accused of sexually harassing Alana’s older sister.
