Alana AKA “Honey Boo Boo” can best be described as Shirley Temple on crack. The child pageant contestant was featured on the TLC reality TV program Toddlers & Tiaras, where it was revealed that she was hopped-up on a mixture on a Mountain Dew and Red Bull known as “go-go juice.” Alana’s mother gives her the sugary concoction because pixie sticks weren’t giving enough pep in her step.
Her animated antics have landed Honey Boo Boo her own show on TLC called Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. The series will follow her family, who are self-professed rednecks (gasp).
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo premieres Wednesday, August 8 at 10 p.m. on TLC (trailer below).
