Rosie O'Donnell really, really loves and respects Alana Thompson.
Okay, not really.
"I love Mama June. I love Sugar Bear. I love Chubbs. I love 'em all."
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, of course, earned monstrous ratings for TLC this summer and will return in the fall/winter with more episodes.
Of the seven-year old at the center of it all, Rosie says: "She has a presence and an intellect that goes way beyond her years."
And O'Donnell concludes that she may one day take a trek fo McIntyre, Georgia: "I'd love to meet them and buy them a house."
She's kidding. We assume. We really, really hope.
