In an appearance on the Dr Drew show, Alana Thompson, the star of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, feigned sleep rather than have to answer the popular TV doctor’s questions.
Honey Boo Boo only opened her eyes to declare that she doesn’t like being on TV.
“Fans come up to me and I hate it,” she shouted.
Leaning forward to get the little girl’s attention the Celebrity Rehab host asked his barefoot guest: “Is it difficult to be on TV?”
But the uncooperative Honey Boo Boo, whom TLC and her family have already come under fire for exploiting, responded by snoring loudly.
It was not until her mother, June Shannon said: “Alana, Come on now let’s get this done so we can go,” that Dr Drew managed to elicit a reply from the cranky child.
Dr Drew also tried to get normally outgoing little girl to do some cartwheels but she flatly refused.
Honey Boo Boo and June Shannon are in Los Angeles to promote the upcoming series of their reality TV show and have been busy making appearances on Access Hollywood and the Jimmy Kimmel show, where Alana Thompson endorsed President Barack Obama.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo will return to TLC with new episodes and several holiday specials after the elementary school student has a well earned break.
The fidgety seven-year-old is clearly tiring of the promotional media circuit as she was also fidgety and bored during her Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance.
After wriggling uncontrollably, Honey Boo Boo pretended to have a quick nap, resting her head in her arms and also shoved her hand in Jimmy Kimmel’s glass of water before flicking it at the audience.
But Honey Boo Boo’s erratic behavior may also be due to her diet junk food and Go-Go-Juice, a mixture of Mountain Dew and Red Bull, that June Shannon gives her daughter before pageant shows.
