Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson is trying to help support herself and her family in the best way that she can. She is currently selling shirts online. Additionally, she and her family headed to California for meet and greets with their fans. Yet, is she trying too hard with her latest endeavor? Fans seem to think so.
Honey Boo Boo Has Been Working It Forever
The truth is Alana is the reason her family was catapulted into the public eye, to begin with. She started out as a pageant tot on Toddlers and Tiaras. Her spunk and quirky personality helped garner her and her whole family their own reality series. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo followed the Shannon/Thompson gang as they navigated life. Her mother, Mama June was larger than life while Alana’s dad, Sugar Bear just sat back and watched the insanity. He helped to raise her and June’s three daughters from previous relationships and, with all of the oddities, they made it work.
Unfortunately, the show was canceled when June was in the company of questionable people but that did not keep them down for long. A new show was launched with life showcasing Mama June’s full-body makeover. Alana was seen evolving into a teenager and all that came with it, still trying to keep her name alive. She appeared on Dancing With the Stars Juniors but also had a dark cloud surrounding her. Her mother got heavy into drugs, lost it all, went to rehab, and got sober so Alana went to live with her sister Pumpkin. It was a struggle but she tried to maintain her spirit.
The Latest Gig, Not Impressed
Despite a steady run on reality television, Honey Boo Boo has to find ways to keep up an income. Her older sister, Pumpkin may have sole custody of her now but she also has a full house. Last summer, she welcomed her second child and in May, she welcomed twins. Mama June pays $800/month in child support but teenagers are expensive. Therefore, Alana is out there hustling. Her latest project is for the new chicken tenders from Boston Market. She posted a promo of herself going inside and excitedly trying them on her Instagram. Fans were less than impressed with her acting skills.
- “Paid advertisement, poor acting lol”
- “You took a tiny bite so I’m not convinced”
- “you really paid her for this huh”
Her followers were also put off by the fact that she dropped one nugget on the table and put it right back into the cup. Then, there were other fans who were just amazed to see how grown up see she was. Maybe she should have promoted something she was super enthused about. It might have come off as more sincere. Then again, she is not really a professional, just a teenager trying to get by.
