Ex­tra Honey Boo Boo? Oh, TLC, you shouldn’t have

Winnipeg Free Press - Section D - - ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK — Get ready for some Honey Boo Boo hol­i­days.

The TLC net­work said Wed­nes­day that it has or­dered Hal­loween, Thanks­giv­ing and Christ­mas spe­cials fo­cus­ing on its seven-year-old break­out star, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thomp­son. The se­ries airs its 10th and fi­nal episode of its de­but sea­son on Wed­nes­day.

The show cen­tres around Thomp­son, her mother June Shan­non and their ru­ral Ge­or­gia fam­ily and has been a break­out hit for the ca­ble net­work. Thomp­son’s out­go­ing per­son­al­ity and catch­phrases like “A dolla makes me holla” made her a star, al­though some crit­ics sug­gest the show mocks small-town South­ern life.

TLC has also or­dered ad­di­tional episodes of the se­ries to air next spring.
