I consider myself a veteran Honey Boo Boo Child fan, frantically cutting together this montage the morning after her amazing, hysterical, breakout Toddlers & Tiaras episode. Since then, the Go-Go-Juiced sassafrass [legal, rarely-heard name: Alana Holler], along with her coupon-cutting mamma June and daddy Sugar Bear, have scored their own reality series that infamously garnered more viewers than the RNC and has spawned catchphrases like “You Betta Redneckognize!” In light of the show’s success, Honey Boo Boo’s veering more and more into the mainstream with a recent, hilarious interview on Anderson Live and a sketch featured on SNL‘s Weekend Update, starring Vanessa Bayer and Bobby Moynihan.
Love ‘em or hate ‘em, this family isn’t going anywhere. The only natural step is a featured role for Boo Boo on one of television’s hottest Emmy-nominated shows. Right? No? Whatever, let us dream.

Is the world ready for a duet with RuPaul and Honey Boo Boo Child? Well, get ready, because Ru is really trying to make it happen! The fashion icon and host of RuPaul’s Drag Race has made a personal appeal to the pint-size reality-TV sensation while on the red carpet of the 2012 MTV VMAs last week. “I’m doing a duet record and I’m here to ask Honey Boo Boo Child to be my duet partner,” he told E! News. RuPaul is apparently a huge fan of the Toddlers & Tiaras breakout star, whose less colorful name is Alana Thompson. The 6-year-old recently debuted her own spinoff series called Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Child, which features the trials and tribulations of her close-knit Georgia-based family.
From what we gather, RuPaul never misses an episode! “She is real, she is lovely, she’s funny,” he gushed. “She doesn’t take herself seriously. The whole family doesn’t take themselves seriously. It’s really just good fun. I love anybody who dances to the beat of a different drummer.” RuPaul admits to identifying with the girl, even admitting that she would totally beat him in a drag fashion walk-off! “Honey Boo Boo is there,” RuPaul said. “She is the queen. She understands what drag is. That’s what pageants are. That’s why pageants are so lovely.” No word on whether the duet will come together, but the resulting cloud of eye shadow and fabulousness would definitely be unforgettable!
