We really wish we were making this up.
But Alana Thompson - a six-year old contestant on Toddlers & Tiaras known as "Honey Boo Boo" - has landed her very own reality show. It will be titled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and it will consist of six half-hour episodes that provide "an inside look into Alana's world," according to a TLC network statement.
The statement goes on to say that viewers will learn how Thompson "is more than just a Go-Go Juice-drinking beauty queen" and that "when she's not chasing after crowns, Alana's with her family in rural Georgia doing what her family does best: four-wheeling through mud pits and picking up road kill for the family cookout."
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo will also feature Thompson's stay-at-home mom, June Shannon, along with her father, Sugar Bear, and sisters Lauryn "Pumpkin," Jessica "Chubbs," and Anna "Chickadee." Really. That's how they are listed in the press release.
We doubt Vanessa Williams will tune in for this spinoff, but will you?
