How does 7-year-old Alana Thompson, aka “Honey Boo Boo child,” handle the harsh glare of the public?
Not very well, it seems.
In a new interview, Dr. Drew asks “Is it difficult to be on TV?” to a restless and barefoot Alana. Unenthused, she ignores the question and pretends to fall asleep on the TV doctor but after being pushed to answer by her mother June, Boo Boo wakes up to yell, “My fans come up to me and I hate it!”
It’s sad but it’s hard to look away, which is exactly the premise of TLC’s runaway hit “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” It’s either the show that everyone’s watching or the one that no one can stand.
