Honey Boo Boo needs to lose weight, says Abbey Lee Miller


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.
