Honey Boo Boo goes wig shopping with her family
Alana Thompson, also known as Honey Boo Boo, and her family visited a wig store during the latest episode of reality TV show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
Honey Boo Boo, 7, headed to the hilariously named Shh! It’s A Wig store with her mother June, her father Sugar Bear, and older sisters 12-year-old Lauryn “Pumpkin”, 15-year-old Jessica “Chubbs”, and 17-year-old Anna “Chickadee” in search of the perfect wig for an upcoming pageant.
Alana Thompson decides that the right wig will help her win the competition and tries on various styles.
However she is unhappy with most of them and her mother agrees that the majority look “a hot mess”.
“I look like I’m gonna rob somebody!” jokes the pint sized beauty queen as she is fitted with a wig cap.
Her mother also gets in on the wig sampling action, much to the delight of partner Sugar Bear.
“When I saw June in a blonde wig, it kinda made me a little frisky and uhh I wanted to jump some bones,” he says.
Honey Boo Boo eventually settles on a gold sparkly wig, but mother June Thompson decides that the store’s selection are not suitable for her daughter, remarking that they look more like Halloween wigs than pageant wigs.
The Thompson family later celebrates Independence Day by having dinner together at a barque house, where Honey Boo Boo remarks that the food-loving clan are “fat”, before her father corrects her, adding: “We’re not fat, we’re pleasingly plump.”
“I want the chicken, and the barbeque and then I want the ribs,” says Alana.
“That’s three!” replies her mother, June Shannon.
“I know, but I get two sides, why can’t my sides be meat?”
The episode also showed the Thompsons driving over to the local dumpster, which they dubbed the “department store”, and sifting through the rubbish.
They excitedly reveal that they once found a surround sound with only one broken speaker at the spot.
“They should have a <<Dumpster Diva Pageant>> cos I would win,” Honey Boo Boo declares, before revealing: “All Pumpkin’s clothes comes from the dumpster.”
TLC first introduced viewers to Toddlers and Tiaras star Alana Thompson in January, where her amusing personality and self-confidence became a fixture in pop culture.
The network offered the family a spin-off series, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, an inside look into little Alana Thompson’s world.
Since premiering on August 8, the show has attracted millions of viewers and its August 29 installment attracted nearly 3 million viewers, eclipsing every network’s coverage of the Republican National Convention and Paul Ryan’s speech.
Each episode follows Honey Boo Boo and her unapologetically outrageous family.
