Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson is only seven-year-old, but she is already used to wearing make-up and grown-up clothes when she takes part in child beauty pageants.
So it was no surprise that the pint-sized reality star stepped out in a pair of strappy silver heels as she joined her family for a family shopping trip to Walmart on Saturday.
Honey Boo Boo was joined by her mother June Shannon and three sisters at the store in Alabama before the young star made a public appearance at a nearby shopping mall.
Alana Thompson also wore a T-shirt emblazoned with the slogan “show off!” perhaps appropriate for the star, whose confident appearance on the TLC show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo! has made it a big hit with viewers.
Since its début in August, the show has averaged 2.3 million viewers per episode.
It topped all individual cable and network broadcasts of the Republican National Convention on August 19 getting a 1.3 rating with adults 18-49, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In fact, the network has already ordered a second season of the show, along with three holiday specials – dubbed “HOLLAday” special shows, celebrating Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas with America.
Amy Winter, general manager of TLC, said: “Alana and her family have become a pop culture phenomenon.
“What you see is what you get, and we are excited to share even more of their unbridled hilarity, sincerity and love with our viewers.”
The programme focuses on the four sisters, along with Anna’s baby Kaitlyn and Honey Boo Boo’s father Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson.
For their trip to Walmart, the sisters all sported casual clothes, with baby Kaitlyn strapped to Honey Boo Boo’s front.
The family was without patriarch Sugar Bear who has recently been treated in hospital for a nasty leg infection.
“He is not getting his leg amputated, what it was he had a four wheeler wreck a couple weeks ago and his leg was badly bruised,” June Shannon revealed.
“Sugar Bear is a big baby, when he gets hurt he’s a big baby and he likes us to stay and when we have to leave he doesn’t like it.”
