Despite the fact that “Toddlers and Tiaras” was met with very mixed reviews and gained the ire of many children’s advocacy groups, TLC nonetheless offered Thompson the chance to host her own show. As they competed in pageants, Alana and her mother, June “Mama June” Shannon, were followed by the camera crew of the spin-off series “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” It also focused on her older sisters, Lauryn, Jessica, and Anna, who were not part in pageant life and have problems of their own, including teen pregnancy.
Her father, Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson, was another major character in the show. Many viewers felt that the show exploited the family and glamorised an unhealthy way of life, and they voiced their opinions by criticising the show in a number of different ways. After airing 55 episodes, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” was cancelled after the fourth season after it was discovered that Mama June was seen hanging out with a man who had reportedly sexually abused one of her daughters.
In 2017, TLC aired a special that was named “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo: The Lost Episodes.” This special comprised a few episodes that had been filmed for the fifth season of the show.
Following the conclusion of the show, Thompson took part in the 2018 season of “Dancing with the Stars: Juniors,” for which she reportedly received a salary of $50,000 from ABC. During the competition, she was partnered with Tristan Ianiero; however, both of them were eliminated from the running during week four.
Alana has also made guest appearances on the television programmes “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “The Doctors,” “The Wendy Williams Show,” “The Screen Junkies Show,” “Steve Harvey,” “Good Morning America,” and “Live with Kelly and Ryan.” Her family went up against the team of “Cake Boss” on an episode of “Family Feud” in 2013. She was one of the 10 most fascinating people of 2012 and was featured on “Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2012.”
The Net Worth of the Honey Boo Boo Child:
Honey Boo Boo Child is a child reality television personality and beauty pageant competitor from the United States, and she has a net worth of $400,000. Her family received a payment of $50,000 per episode for their participation in the TLC reality show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” (2012–2014), for which they earned a total of $2.75 million over the course of the show’s run.
She was given her first shot at stardom on the TLC reality series “Toddlers and Tiaras” (2012–2013), which followed several child pageant candidates and their families as they prepared for competition. Alana Frances Thompson was born on August 28, 2005 in McIntyre, Georgia. Following the conclusion of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” Alana made an appearance in the series “Mama June: From Not to Hot,” which was produced by her mother and aired on TLC from 2017 to 2020.
Private Life of Honey Boo Boo
When Thompson’s parents divorced in 2014, Alana was there to walk her father down the aisle for his subsequent marriage, which was to Jennifer Lamb in 2017. In 2015, Alana and Lauryn collaborated with singer-songwriter Adam Barta to record the song “Movin’ Up.”
The music video for the song was responsible for starting a trend that became known as the “honey boo boo bop.” Following the incident in March 2019 in which Mama June and her partner were found in possession of crack cocaine, Mama June was placed under arrest for possession of a controlled substance, and Alana’s older sister Lauryn, who was 20 years old at the time, was granted legal guardianship of her.
It was stated that Lauryn, her husband Josh, and Alana were evicted from their house in April of 2020 due to the fact that they were $1,242 behind on their rent payments at the time of the eviction.
