Will Rosie O’Donnell buy Honey Boo Boo a house?
Comedienne Rosie O’Donnell loves watching reality TV star Honey Boo Boo so much, she may just buy her a house.
O’Donnell says she’s amazed by the whole Thompson family, but especially by 7-year-old Honey Boo Boo, who she thinks says some quite amazing things. She even declared she reminds her of 1930s child star Shirley Temple.
O’Donnell was recently interviewed by People magazine and, when she got onto the subject of Honey Boo Boo, AKA Alana Thompson, the comedienne couldn’t stop talking enthusing.
O’Donnell said she’s enamored of the show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” and all its participants, and would love to meet the entire Thompson family. Buying them a house would even be an option.
The Thompson family and Honey Boo Boo are currently in negotiations with The Learning Channel (TLC) for a second season of the popular reality show, and it’s been previously reported that a house had been part of past offers.
O’Donnell tells People magazine that she is a huge fan of the show. O’Donnell comapres little Honey Boo Boo to former child screen legend Shirley Temple.
“I think that little girl, Honey Boo Boo, she is like Shirley Temple,” O’Donnell tells People about the 7-year-old reality star. “She has a presence and an intellect that goes way beyond her years.”
“I’d love to meet them,” she says, “and buy them a house.”
June “Mama” Thompson, however, has said several times before that she’s perfectly happy living where she and her family already live, particularly as she wants to “keep the show real”.
In fact, she, Honey Boo Boo and the rest of the family may just be more grounded than the show sometimes makes them seem.
