Holla! Pageant star Honey Boo Boo Child gets her own show

We love her.

SHE’S SMALL. SHE’S blonde. And she’s a force to be reckoned with.

Six-year-old Alana is a self-proclaimed superstar child pageant queen, and it was only a matter of time before she got her own TV show.

If you ever have the pleasure of meeting this young firecracker, she’s most likely to shout, Oprah-style:

“I like to win because I want to win MONEEEEY!

While hopped up on special ‘Go Go Juice’ (it’s a mixture of an energy drink and a caffeinated drink), Alana competes in the controversial world of child pageants, with her coupon queen mother close at hand.

Here’s Alana assuring Dr Drew that there’s no meth, crack or ecstasy in her special juice:


Famous for informing us that “a dolla make me holla,”  Alana first appeared on our screens thanks to eye-opening behind-the-scenes pageant show Toddlers and Tiaras.

Now the Georgia native and her family – mum June, father ‘Sugar Bear’ and sisters ‘Pumpkin,’ ‘Chubbs’ and ‘Chickadee’ (we’re pretty confident those are not their legal names) – have got a show all to themselves: Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

You can watch the magnificent trailer here and the series will premiere on August 8 on US channel TLC.

We’re counting down the days.
