Reality TV quote: ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’
TLC gave “Ducky Dynasty” network A&E some competition for best reality show quotes, with memorable moments from the family featured in “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” The show centers around 7-year-old Alana Thompson, a.k.a Honey Boo Boo, and her family, and is a spinoff of the network’s “Toddlers and Tiaras.” Alana’s family hails from Georgia and has a penchant for outrageous catchphrases, which may be a part of the reason why the show became somewhat of a phenomenon this year.
Alana (at left) and her mother, June Shannon (at right), were even the subject of a reading this year done by Christopher Walken, Colin Farrell, and Sam Rockwell as the actors promoted their film “Seven Psychopaths.” Walken and Farrell did a reading of scenes from the show while being interviewed on “The Screen Junkies Show.” June and Alana later read some of Walken’s best lines for the online review show. Although there were some gems in those videos, our favorite quote came from Miss Honey Boo Boo herself in August when she described what she wanted to be when she grows up to “Access Hollywood”:
“I want to be a doctor, a nurse, a hair saloner, a makeup saloner, work at Wal-Mart, work at Kmart, work at McDonald’s where I can eat all the chicken nuggets and work at a hotel so I can go swimming. And I wanna be a mama too!”
