Alana Thompson (better known to reality television fans as "Honey Boo Boo Child") recently sat down for a little tête-à-tête with Dr. Drew and her momma June - but apparently the feisty southern beauty pageant queen-wannabe just wasn't feeling it. During the interview (which airs Tuesday, Oct. 23), an agitated Honey Boo Boo actually pretends to be asleep (and even feigns dramatic snores during her impromptu "nap") just so she can avoid answering Dr. Drew's questions. Alana then flails her arms and and manages to slap Dr. Drew in the face in the middle of the convo. Maybe instant reality stardom is getting to be a little too much for the 7-year-old tot to handle.
During the interview clip, Dr. Drew attempts to ask Honey Boo Boo if it's difficult being on TV. That's when Alana closes her eyes and pretends to zonk out. Dr. Drew presses the issue, and Honey Boo Boo eventually exclaims, "No! (Fans come up to me and I hate it)," in-between heavy snorts, snores, and wild flailing of the arms. Check it out:
When Dr. Drew continues with, "No? You don't like being on TV?" Alana smacks him in the face. Momma June attempts to be a neutral barrier, but it doesn't seem to stop Honey Boo Boo's hostile attitude towards the popular television show host.
Maybe little Alana misses having a "normal" childhood? She claims that schoolmates treat her differently now, but her mother brushes such comments off as if it's nothing. Does there need to be a "Honey Boo Boo Child" intervention before the show continues?
