Honey Boo Boo has lost nearly 8 lbs in the past month, dropping from 125.5 lbs to 118, her mother, June Shannon, revealed via Instagram.

Mama June credited Alana’s weight loss to “eating smaller portions and walking” as well as support from the family’s personal trainer, Natasha Fett.

The 35-year-old also said that she has lost 45 lbs and her daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon has lost 26 lbs. She went on to say that it all happened because Natasha Fett was “someone who genuinely cares about us … getting healthier and changing [our] minds”.Honey Boo Boo weight loss 2015

In February, 9-year-old Honey Boo Boo was on The Doctors pledging to lose 12-25 pounds from her 4ft6in, 125-pound frame.

The Doctors had provided Alana Thompson with a brand new bicycle and chef-prepared meals for a six-week period as well as new kitchen appliances for Mama June.


Honey Boo Boo and her mother returned to The Doctors on May 20, for the third and final check up.
Dr. Travis Stork confronted Mama June and said: “We sent you all these kitchen tools to help you cook and they’re still in the boxes, haven’t even been opened.”

He also accused Honey Boo Boo of saying one thing for the cameras, “but doing another”.

Meanwhile, mother-of-four June Shannon is planning to undergo lap-band surgery this summer, TMZ reported.

Honey Boo Boo proved her star power as she attended her very own book signing in McLean, North Virginia.

Looking every inch the mini superstar, Alana Thompson matched her trademark curls with a cool set of cornrows, diamante studded cowboy boots, jean shorts and a bright blue and pink vest top – which appeared to be doughnut-patterned.

Other members of Honey Boo Boo’s family were also in attendance offering up their autographs, although no-one seemed to quite captivate the crowds as well as Alana Thompson.

At one stage, Honey Boo Boo sat on the table with her back against her family members, that include Mama June Shannon, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, Anna “Chickadee” Shannon, and Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon.

June Shannon’s husband Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson was also on hand at the signing.

7-year-old Alana Thompson took center stage at Tysons Corner Mall to promote the new book, How to Honey Boo Boo: The Complete Guide on How to Redneckognize the Honey Boo Boo in You.

Of course, Honey Boo Boo didn’t actually write the book herself, although it has been inspired by irreducible pearls of wisdom from the young star, such as: “It’s called a biscuit because it looks like a biscuit.”

The authorized guide to the show apparently tells you all need to know to enjoy the doings and sayings of Honey Boo Boo and her lovably redneck rural Georgia family.

However, it didn’t seem to keep Honey Boo Boo’s attention for long.

After a quick outfit change the bold youngster headed straight out of the book shop in need of some retail therapy and was seen checking out the latest Windows android phone.

Mama June appeared to be as equally entertained by the phone as she played around on a test model in the shop.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo returned for a second season on July 17, and while outside of the show Alana Thompson’s star has risen, an early clip has shown her family are still very much down to earth.

In the first episode the family are seen messing around together as they prepare to visit a local wrestling event where father Sugar Bear has been working.

“Being backstage is awesome ’cause I can show off all my butt-kicking moves,” Honey Boo Boo says before demonstrating her skills for the professional wrestlers.

“Y’all can use it in the match to knock out people,” she added.

Honey Boo Boo attended the fifth annual National Redneck Olymp-Hicks in Augusta, Georgia, on Saturday, and won a medal for her dance moves.

The athletic tournament includes competitions for the biggest beer belly, redneck belly-flop, loudest belch, and the by far most daunting “bobbin for pig’s feet”.

Honey Boo Boo, 7, donned a frilly outfit with matching pants and tank top for her day of athletic competition and mud sliding fun.

The former pageant clearly having the time of her life as she skidded down a make shift water slide, constructed out of a plastic tarp and covered in brown mud.

Honey Boo Boo, whose real name is Alana Thompson, even enjoyed a dip in the belly flopping pools, which were simply large holes dug into the ground and filled with muddy water.

Midway through the day of competitive redneck challenges Honey Boo Boo took a break and enjoyed an icy treat, which seemed to be a departure from her normal diet of “sketti” and caffeine-infused “go-go juice”.

Meanwhile, her sister Anna “Chickadee” shined on the winner’s podium as her daughter Kaitlyn won an award for “cutest redneck baby”.

As the day progressed the girls took to the sidelines to watch the tournament’s main event, belly flopping.

After their day of fun, Honey Boo Boo was spotted rinsing off the mud and grime with the aid of a fire truck’s hose.

But this was not the first time the famous girl and her family have attended the Olymp-Hicks games.

The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo stars famously competed in last year’s tournament, and even participated in the “bobbin’ for pig’s feet” event – which consists of fishing for raw uncooked swine limbs swimming in a plastic bucket full of murky water with one’s teeth.

During a taping for an episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Mama June, aka June Shannon, said of last year’s event: “It’s just like the Olympics except for a lot of missing teeth and butt cracks showing.”

She added: “There are some broke down people out there.”

June Shannon, 33, first shot to fame after her daughter  Alana won national attention with her appearance on the reality show Toddlers and Tiaras before landing their own programme.

The redneck tournament, held in a field beside Augusta’s Savannah River Lock and Dam hosted thousands of attendees over the weekend.

In addition to the impressive and muddy feats performed, Olymp-hicks included a fair where youngsters, and anyone less interested in getting dirty, could take a ride down an inflatable slide, among other attractions.

An appropriate addition to the day’s fun was the actual car, the General Lee, from the 1980s television series The Dukes of Hazzard.

Honey Boo Boo was seen doing a meet and greet with her fans over the weekend where she also sold boxes of Girl Scout Cookies.

Honey Boo Boo, 8, could not help but tuck into the treats herself, and was seen with what appeared to be chocolate smeared around her face.

Setting up shop in the front yard of her McIntyre, Georgia home, Honey Boo Boo was working the crowd by holding up signs and selling boxes for people to take photos with her and her family.

Honey Boo Boo was certainly prepared for the media opportunity, also bringing along some signed photographs of herself and her family members.

The charitable youngster worked hard at the makeshift event, standing out in the sun and holding up placards to advertise the famous cookies.

Honey Boo Boo was selling the treats for $3.50 a box, and even drew cute pictures of chocolate chip cookies in pink on her signs in an effort to promote the drive.

As always, Honey Boo Boo was supported by her family members, including her Mama June, father Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson and sister Lauryn Shannon, who was holding one of the family’s pet chickens.

Honey Boo Boo and her extended family were pictured ignoring basic guidelines as they piled en masse onto the back of a moving quad bike in Georgia.

The four children sat wherever they could find a spot astride the bonnet and back of the small truck, driven by father Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson.

They seemed unconcerned by any worries they might fall or be injured, going without helmets.

With two girls sat in front of him Sugar Bear could barely see where he was going, but continued to drive.

At least the girls’ mother Mama June decided to sit out the fun. With her bulky frame the quad bike would have been seriously overloaded.

Instead she watched from the sidelines, a towel wrapped around her wet hair.

Thankfully her daughter Anna “Chickadee”, 18, also skipped the ride, sensibly deciding to stay on firm land with her infant daughter Kaitlyn.

Surprisingly Honey Boo Boo later dug out a pink unicorn helmet to protect her hair as she enjoyed the more sedate activity of riding a bike.

Teamed with her bright pink boots and pale pink Major Attitude T-shirt there was no mistaking Honey Boo Boo’s favorite color.

Honey Boo Boo’s mother, June Shannon, has revealed she won’t be upgrading her modest home for a luxury pad any time soon – as she is not profiting from reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

Instead the self-proclaimed “redneck” has divided the estimated $15,000 to $20,000 episode fee into equal trust funds for her four daughters and granddaughter.

“I want my kids to look back and say, <<Mama played it smart. Not like those other reality TV people>>,” she told website TMZ.

And Mama June, as she is known, has ensured she won’t be tempted to take the money for herself by asking TLC to pay it straight into the trust funds.

“TLC puts the money into the girls’ trust accounts for me and then I get an email telling me how much everyone gets,” she explained.

“You’re never gonna see me drive a Range Rover or a Mercedes. I’ll drive one if someone else pays for it. Never gonna live above my means.”

Her far-sightedness means that when 7-year-old Honey Boo Boo, aka Alana Thompson, and her sisters Lauryn, 12, Jessica, 15, Anna, 18, and Anna’s daughter Kaitlyn turn 21 they will receive a sizeable amount of money.

Only if they need money for their education, or healthcare, can the girls access the money before then.

Full time mother June Shannon, who is known for her love of extreme couponing, explained that she and her partner live off his salary as a contractor.

The family has made one large purchase since their new found fame – a second hand, 7-year-old Ford Expedition.

Barbara Walters has named Honey Boo Boo as one of her Most Fascinating People of 2012.

Barbara Walters, 83, has been spellbound by the antics of the spoiled 7-year-old beauty queen Honey Boo Boo, whose real name is Alana Thompson.

The veteran TV journalist told Us Magazine the reason the TLC show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is a hit as it exposes the touching bond she has with her mother June Shannon.

She said: “It’s a love story. It’s a very sweet, loving story.

“A lot of people will say, <<For heaven’s sake, this is ridiculous, this is a child at 5 or 6 years old entering beauty contests>>.

“But the relationship between Alana and her mother – that’s the story, the two of them. It’s very touching.”

And Barbara Walters claims beneath the bluster, the show is actually full of demonstrations of old-fashioned family values.

She said: “Honey Boo Boo is not an obnoxious little girl. She’s sweet and loving with her mother and loving with her sisters [Jessica, Lauryn and Anna].

“And now Anna has a new baby, and the baby has [three] thumbs – but so what? It’ll make you smile.”

Ben Affleck, One Direction and 50 Shades of Grey writer E.L. James have also been named among the Ten Most Fascinating People of 2012.

The Argo director, British boyband and literary sensation have made the ranks this year for Barbara Walters’ annual television special.

The veteran newswoman revealed Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane and Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas also made the cut.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton makes the list for a second time; and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will make his debut.

Three others on the list have yet to be announced.

Ben Affleck has had a banner year, now tipped for an Oscar for his critically-acclaimed CIA drama Argo, in which he stars and directs.

One Direction has meanwhile conquered the US music charts after its members Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan emerged a public favorite after finishing third on The X Factor UK in 2010, while E.L. James has made similar feats in the literary world with her erotic novel.

The most fascinating person of 2012 will be named during Barbara Walters’ December television special, which typically includes sit-down interviews with those on the list.

Hillary Clinton was previously named in 1993 during her tenure as First Lady of the United States.

Late Apple boss Steve Jobs was number one on the list last year, preceded by shamed former CIA boss General David Patraeus in 2010.

First Lady Michelle Obama was number one in 2009, preceded by President Barack Obama.

Speaking on The View on Monday, Barbara Walters said 2012 list was compiled of people “very much in the news” this year.

She also added there would be “no criminals” on the list.

Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of the Year is scheduled to air December 12th on ABC network.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo reality show has been branded by Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine as the “worst thing that’s ever happened” to civilization.

Adam Levine has slammed the reality series – which follows 7-year-old beauty pageant contestant Alana Thompson (aka Honey Boo Boo) and her family – for causing “decay” to society and insists its high viewing figures do not mean it has anything important to offer.

He told GQ magazine: “Seriously, Honey Boo Boo is the decay of Western civilization.

“Just because so many people watch the show doesn’t mean it’s good.

“So many people witness atrocities and can’t take their eyes away from them, but that doesn’t mean they’re good. That show is literally The. Worst. Thing. That’s. Ever. Happened!”

Adam Levine also slammed Honey Boo Boo’s parents, June Shannon and Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson.

He blasted the “despicable” parenting shown in the programme during his expletive-filled rant.

Adam Levine said: “It’s complete f***ing ignorance and the most despicable way to treat your kids. F**k those people.

“You can put that in the magazine: F**k those idiots. They’re just the worst. Sorry, I’m so sensitive to that – like, I don’t know, man, it’s upsetting. Just to clarify, I said, <<F**K THOSE PEOPLE>>.”

Artist Jason Mecier spent 50 hours and used 25 lbs of garbage to create a larger-than-life portrait of Honey Boo Boo.

The San Francisco-based artist, who has previously made junk portraits of Donald Trump, Andy Warhol, and Phyllis Diller, used the seven-year-old superstar as inspiration for his latest project.

Utilizing her trademark “sketti”, as well as butter, cheese balls, chicken nuggets and the infamous Go-Go Juice that kept her energetic while starring on Toddlers & Tiaras, Jason Mecier re-imagined her as a pile of garbage.

Jason Mecier said: “I used Red Bulls, Mountain Dew, two cans of hair spray, three tiaras, make-up, mascara, fake eyelashes, coupons, a pink Snuggy box, and all sorts of things that make Honey Boo Boo so unique.

“But don’t worry no roadkill was injured during the making of this portrait!” he joked, making reference to the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo family that often cook and eat roadkill animals found near their home in McIntyre, Georgia.

Hardly any pieces in Jason Mecier’s sculpture are coincidental.

For example, Honey Boo Boo, whose real name is Alana Thompson, recently got a pet chicken and named it Nugget.

Her mother, Mama June (June Shannon), wrote on her daughters official Facebook page: “[H]er and nugget have became very attached this weekend and it in the house but has a outside house too but alana refuses to let her sleep outside lol she she sleeps inside at night in her inside cage.”

Honey Boo Boo was also recently immortalized in cartoon form, in a garish new comic book titled 15 Minutes.

The colorful 23-page magazine charts Honey Boo Boo’s meteoric rise to fame over the past 11 months, from her TV debut in Toddlers and Tiara’s to landing her very own reality show.

Explaining his inspiration, writer and illustrator Michael Troy said: “Andy Warhol’s quote about 15 minutes of fame is one of my favorites and as a pop culture junkie I jumped at the chance to put my spin on spoon fed America’s latest reality obsession.”

The front cover of the comic book, shows Honey Boo Boo, whose real name is Alana Thompson, dressed in a pink pageant dress that will be familiar to many of her fans.

Kris Jenner, Rosie O’Donnell and Anderson Cooper also have cameo roles in the short book.

In one of his strips Michael Troy asks readers “What is fame?”, responding with a quote from poet Lord Byron that “it is the thirst of youth”.

U.S. publishers Bluewater Productions, say the magazine examines the “the underbelly of fame”.

Its publisher Darren G. Davis explained that people shouldn’t take the magazine too seriously.

He said: “Clearly this one was meant to be fun for people and not to educate society.

“There are some of these biographies we do for strictly the entertainment value.”

Bluewater’s comics have previously featured stars such as One Direction, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato.

Its new series 15 Minutes will focus on personalities from the realms of reality TV, and it hints that Kim Kardashian, and characters from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Jersey Shore could possibly star in future issues.

It isn’t the first time Honey Boo Boo has been imagined in cartoon form.

Last month she starred in an episode of the animated sitcom South Park, along with her mother June Shannon.

The Honey Boo Boo comic is available in print for $3.99, while a digital version is priced at $1.99.

While the rest of the nation dressed as Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson for Halloween, the reality starlet put that same flair for pageantry into her pink pirate wench costume on Wednesday.

In a photo obtained by TMZ, precocious 7-year-old Honey Boo Boo smiles cherubically while wearing a pink and black pigtail wig, lashes and red lips, and a pink and black pirate dress fastened with a skull-and-crossbones belt.

The Toddlers & Tiaras star finished her trick or treat look off with a festive purple jack- o’-lantern basket.

On Halloween, Honey Bo Boo was seen playing in her McIntyre home’s front yard alongside a similarly costumed friend sporting a two-tone wig, blue dress and Frankenstein stitches on her arms and legs.

According to TMZ, Honey Boo Boo had a great time and ate delicious candy, including her favorite – lollipops.

Alana Thompson has been known to ingest a junk food and “Go-Go-Juice”, a mixture of Mountain Dew and Red Bull, that her mother June Shannon provides for her before pageant shows.

TV Guide recently confirmed that Alana Thompson’s hit TLC spin-off series, Here Comes Honey Boo, was renewed and three specials are due to air for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

The popular show follows Honey Boo Boo, along with her mother, father Mike Thompson, and her three older sisters in their rural Georgia hometown.

In a special Halloween clip released by TLC, the street-smart star told viewers that her favorite costume for the holiday was actually her “bride costume”.

“I love that costume and then you can get married in your costume,” Honey Boo Boo told cameras.

Meanwhile, her stay-at-home mother waxed lyrical about some of her favorite kids’ costumes.

“My cutest costume I’ve had for my kids would be… Alana would be a princess because she’s a princess diva,” said June Shannon.

“Jessica has been… last year when she dressed up as a kind of Madonna issue, I thought that was kinda like crazy.”

And she added of her oldest daughter who has just given birth to a six-fingered baby girl: “Anna has never been into trick or treating so she never like dressed up as a kid.”

Honey Boo Boo and her mother just returned from Los Angeles where they promoted their series on Dr. Drew, Access Hollywood, and the Jimmy Kimmel show where the tiny diva officially endorsed President Barack Obama.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo airs Wednesdays on TLC.

Honey Boo Boo has yet again made it into the Presidential election campaign – this time with Vice President Joe Biden admitting to “catching snippets” of the TLC show on Air Force Two.

Quizzed about his pop culture habits, gaffe-prone Joe Biden revealed his favorite television shows were Modern Family and Parks and Recreation in an interview with a Miami Radio station on Friday.

But Joe Biden said he was well aware of the phenomenon that is Here Comes Honey Boo Boo after watching the program while travelling.

“Beyond Modern Family and Parks and Recreation, that’s about it, those are ones that I spend most of my time [watching],” Joe Biden told 93.9 MIA radio.

“I haven’t spent most of my time with pop culture that, like, my granddaughter talks about. Like Honey Boo Boo is not top on my list, but I am aware just, you know by catching snippets on Air Force Two, [that it is] quite a phenomenon. But, but I do try.”

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.

Honey Boo Boo’s gay Uncle Poodle, Lee Thompson, has spoken out about what it is like to be gay in the South.

Uncle Poodle bravely shared his harrowing memories in a video for GLAAD’s Spirit Day.

Lee Thompson says he has fallen victim to some horrible attacks at the hand of ignorant thugs, which have left him with broken ribs and a dislocated jaw.

Sugar Bear’s brother made the horrifying reveal in a video for GLAAD – which was created to fight intolerance and violence against the LGBT community.

Uncle Poodle explains in the reel: “Being gay in the South… people don’t like it.”

“Growing up as a kid, I was bullied day in and day out … broke ribs, dislocated jaw, cars vandalized … I’ve had cars vandalized to this day.”

But Uncle Poodle says he was able to get through it all because of his family and friends who stand by him.

“But I have a family that stands by me, supports me,” he said.

Adding: “I’m wearing purple today to let every youngster and every teen know it is okay to be who you are. Don’t let nobody change that.”

Honey Boo Boo herself, real name Alana Thompson, supports her uncle wholeheartedly.

On the season finale of her hit TV show, Honey Boo Boo voiced her pro-LGBT stance, saying “ain’t nothin’ wrong with bein’ a little gay”.

Uncle Poodle is Honey Boo Boo’s undisputed favorite.

Lee Thompson explained to the Georgia Voice how Honey Boo Boo came up with the Poodle nickname.

“We were at practice one day, getting ready for a pageant. Her coach was talking about her gay friends, and she said, <<I love all my poodles>>,” he told the Georgia Voice.

“Alana thought she was really talking about dogs. She wanted to know how many poodles she had, and what were their names. And I said, <<No, Alana, she’s talking about gay people>>. Well, that did it. All gay people are poodles to her now, and I’m her number one poodle.”

Only in LA would you find an ATM machine that dispenses cupcakes and Honey Boo Boo and her family sought it out pretty much immediately after arriving on the West Coast.

Honey Boo Boo, 7, was as excited as can be to make her selection, and even stuck her head into the machine while still eating her first cake.

Everyone’s favorite reality star was joined by her mother June Shannon.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo reality show star recently endorsed President Barack Obama as her choice to continue his run as Commander in Chief.

Honey Boo Boo, real name Alana Thompson, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel this week, where her mother revealed she is saving the profits from her young daughter’s fame in a fund for her.

June Shannon told Jimmy Kimmel: “I am the manager, the agent in all of this. I know what’s best for my kids… that’s why I chose to put money in the trust fund.

“This journey may last six months or it may last a year but I don’t want ten years down the road Alana or any of the kids to be thinking, <<oh my god, I have nothing to show for it>>. So I wanted to put it in a trust fund, split equally for all the kids.

“So most of the money is there, and the other money goes to our community outreach programmes like the UR brand that we raise for anti-bullying.”

Honey Boo Boo says she doesn’t get her own allowance just yet, but that Mama gives her money to go to the store.

“Like if I wanna go to the store, she gives me my own money. I buy some candy or somethin’, or somethin’ to eat,” she said.

On her nickname as “coupon queen”, June Shannon admitted: “Unfortunately because we’ve had a busy schedule I don’t get to coupon as much as I used to, but when I do get to coupon… oh boy.

“It’s kind of like an addictive drug for me, you save money for your family, but I could be a multimillionaire and I’d still save family for my family.”

Honey Boo Boo and her family are about to change their lifestyle as with fame comes money, travel and fancy meals in posh restaurants.

It all started for Honey Boo Boo, real name Alana Thompson, on Tuesday at Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump’s Beverly Hills restaurant, Villa Blanc.

Honey Boo Boo and her mother, June Shannon, were treated to the restaurant’s spaghetti and tomato sauce dish to see how it measured up with their favorite concoction.

Judging by the way Honey Boo Boo was dangling strand after strand into her mouth with gay abandon we can assume that the answer is, very well.

Before long, Honey Boo Boo will be demanding chai lattes instead of Mountain Dew and having burrata flown in from Italy to scatter on her pasta.

Then there’ll be the celebrity diet, and she’ll inevitably launch a singing career.

The joy of little Alana Thompson and her family is that they’ve not yet been affected by the fame, or Hollywood.

Honey Boo Boo proved her personality is far from pint sized on last night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel.

Seven-year-old Alana Thompson was unable to contain her excitement and boredom during the nine minute segment, which she appeared on with her mother, June Shannon.

While uncontrollably wriggling, Honey Boo Boo endorses Barack Obama, admits she once had a stutter and discusses her allowance; while mother June Shannon reveals how all the money made from the show is split equally between the children in a trust fund.

Meanwhile, they youngster decides to have a quick nap, resting her head in her arms, but not before shoving her hand in Jimmy Kimmel’s glass of water and then flicking it at the audience.

Turning to June Shannon, otherwise known as Mama, Jimmy Kimmel asks: “The Kardashians are making millions of dollars, and their show is about as popular as yours. Are you making millions of dollars?”

Earnestly, Mama replied: “No, we just started out, you don’t make millions when you first start out.

“I am the manager, the agent in all of this. I know what’s best for my kids… that’s why I chose to put money in the trust fund.

“This journey may last six months or it may last a year but I don’t want ten years down the road Alana or any of the kids to be thinking, <<oh my god, I have nothing to show for it>>. So I wanted to put it in a trust fund, split equally for all the kids.

Jimmy Kimmel pointed out the family’s other nickmanes, like Chubs, Sugar Bear and Pumpkin.

Honey Boo Boo offered: “I have other nicknames, one’s Smoochi and one’s T.T.

“It’s because when I was little I used to stutter. I used to say a <<lotta T, T, T>>”

Jimmy Kimmel turned the focus to politics, telling the mother-daughter duo that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney recently said he prefers Snooki to the TLC stars.

“Do you know who Mitt Romney is?” asked Jimmy Kimmel.

“No,” replied Honey Boo Boo.

He tried again: “Barack Obama?”

Answering with uncertainty, she said: “The President?”

Jimmy Kimmel thne asked who she would be supporting this year.

“Marack Obama,” she replied, as Mama adjusted her daughter’s legs into a more ladylike position, an ongoing struggle between the pair during the segment.

Nine minutes later and the youngster jumped for joy when she realized it was over.

“You better Redneckognize!” she yelled.

June Shannon has hired a 24-hour bodyguard to protect her youngest daughter, Honey Boo Boo.

The security measure is believed to be in response to an alleged plot to abduct seven-year-old reality star Alana Thompson.

While the network behind the hit show, TLC, has denied any suggestions of a kidnap plot, June Shannon, confirmed the full-time protection via Facebook.

June Shannnon wrote: “Alana doesn’t go anywhere without her bodyguard! We have one 24/7 everywhere we go ALL the time!”

According to The National Enquirer, Honey Boo Boo’s school received abduction threats from an anonymous caller.

A source told the tabloid: “June is terrified. With the threats on Alana’s safety increasing, security is being provided for her around the clock.

“There was a meeting with all the teachers at Alana’s school. They have been instructed to keep an eye on Alana, and they know to report anything suspicious immediately.”

An attempted break-in at the Honey Boo Boo household in rural McIntyre, Georgia on August 27 is also believed to have triggered concerns over their safety.

The source added that police told the clan it “may have been casing the place for a future kidnap attempt, by someone convinced that TLC would pay a huge ransom for their newest little star”.

Despite Here Comes Honey Boo Boo reality show attracting huge ratings since airing on August 8, the family has remained in the same neighborhood.

The National Enquirer reveals that the family has thought “about moving, but the problem is that TLC has them locked under contract to keep their lifestyle”.

However, TMZ previously reported that the network wanted to help the stars relocate to a larger and more secure home, but June Shannon declined the offer.

It also described that TLC boosted the family’s wage from approximately $5,000 per episode, to a sky-high $20,000 after seeing the success of the series.

Honey Boo Boo got stuck into the attractions at a local country fair in Atlanta, Georgia.

Alana Thompson, 7, especially enjoyed herself as she ran around in a giant inflatable ball positioned on water, laughing as she threw herself on the floor of the see-through orb.

The youngster sported a practical outfit of jeans and a red and white top as she hit the fair with her famous family.

Sisters Anna “Chickadee”, Jessica “Chubbs” and Lauryn “Pumpkin” strolled alongside mother June Shannon, although there was no sign of Alana’s father Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson.

Sugar Bear is currently recovering after undergoing an operation on his leg to treat an infection.

Earlier, Honey Boo Boo was spotted keeping herself entertained outside the family’s house, playing with a wheelchair which Sugar Bear has been using while his leg recovers.

The family home in rural McIntyre Georgia, has already been decorated for Halloween, with a plastic orange pumpkin set out on the outside stairs.

The family is having to get used to their new found fame, after their reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was a ratings hit for TLC.

TMZ have reported that TLC boosted the family’s salary from approximately $5,000 per episode, to a sky-high $20,000 after seeing the success of the series.

It added that TLC also offered to cover a number of additional expenses for the family, including a driver and bodyguard figure for Sugar Bear who was hospitalized recently after a “mud-boggin” crash.

The site also reports that the network wanted to help the clan relocate to a larger and more secure home, but June Shannon declined the offer as she likes to decorate the property over the holidays for the local community.

June Shannon has also refused to sign with an agent, despite numerous offers, TMZ says, for fear that a publicity schedule would keep her away from Sugar Bear and her girls.

TLC offered Alana Thompson, aka Honey Boo Boo, and her self-proclaimed redneck family their own spin-off series this year after she appeared on Toddlers & Tiaras.

The début season of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo enjoyed an average of 2.4 million viewers per episode.

In response to the show’s success, TLC has ordered three HOLLAday specials (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas) and additional episodes of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has become a pop culture phenomenon,” said Amy Winter, general manager of the U.S. network.

“What you see is what you get and we are excited to share even more of Alana and her family’s unbridled hilarity, sincerity and love with our viewers.”

June Shannon came under fire for giving her daughter Go-Go-Juice, a mixture of Mountain Dew and Red Bull, before little Honey Boo Boo took to the stage in pageants.

Yet the mother-of-four thought it wise to take seven-year-old Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson to the Coca-Cola factory in Atlanta, Georgia, for a family day out instead of somewhere educational.

The whole gang – including Honey Boo Boo’s half-sisters Lauryn, Anna and Jessica, and her father Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson – were spotted as they took photographs with Coca-Cola’s iconic polar bear.

They also took the factory tour, watched a 3D movie on the secret ingredient, posed by the famous American Idol chair, and tasted different varieties of the carbonated drink from across the globe.

Honey Boo Boo initially found fame on Toddlers & Tiaras before landing her own self-titled spin-off show on TLC, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

She was seen confidently playing around the tourist spot, dressed appropriately in black leggings and a white blouse with stars speckled on it – instead of garish pageant clothes.

Even Honey Boo Boo’s newborn niece Kaitlyn went along for the ride, strapped to her mother Anna.

The last episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, which aired at the end of September, saw the 17-year-old single mother give birth during the season finale.

Meanwhile, Honey Boo Boo played the devoted daughter, pushing her father around in his wheelchair.

Sugar Bear recently spent 12 days in hospital following emergency surgery to fix a leg infection.

In other news on the loveable rogues, TMZ have reported that TLC boosted the family’s salary from approximately $5,000 per episode, to a sky-high $20,000 after seeing the success of the series.

Dance Moms TV personality Abbey Lee Miller has ripped into Honey Boo Boo, saying she needs to lose weight.

Abbey Lee Miller made the controversial comments today – saying the youngster needs to get fit if she wants to win pageants.

The tough-talking choreographer spoke to TMZ, admitting she wasn’t happy with her own weight issues.

But she then went on to blast Honey Boo Boo, saying: “[She] needs to get in shape. She needs to be at a dance studio.

“She needs to be training. She needs to work on her turnout.”

Wednesday night saw the season finale of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo aired on TLC.

During the episode the youngster – real name Alana Thompson – had to be coaxed on stage by her mother June Shannon at Georgia’s Miss Sparkle and Shine Pageant.

“Mama, I think I’m a little chunky today,” Honey Boo Boo said to her mother at the show.

Her mother replied: “You have to stay away from those chicken nuggets,” as they both became concerned the velcro on her pink could come undone.

Prior to her on-stage turn, one of Honey Boo Boo’s sisters described how the junk food-loving seven-year-old was bigger than most of the other pageant contestants.

“Alana’s not your average pageant person. Most of the girls are like twigs. She’s more of a log… or a boulder.”

Honey Boo Boo managed to muster the confidence to get on stage, though, and show off her dress.

“Once she gets into pageant mode she becomes a different child,” her mother June Shannon said from the audience.

Honey Boo Boo missed out on the grand title, but was awarded People’s Choice prize.
