But what about another precocious blond star who's won America’s heart? We’re talking, of course, about Honey Boo Boo, aka Alana Thompson, age 7.
TMZ stopped DWTS pro Karina Smirnoff while she was on her way out of a nightclub to ask about lowering the age minimum on the show so that Honey Boo Boo could appear in an upcoming season. At first, Karina said, “Who?” when she heard the name, but then she replied, “No, I don’t think that should happen.”
When asked if Alana’s equally famous mom, June, should appear, Karina said, “Um, no, I think we’re pretty good with people we have on the show.”
Watch for yourself and tell us if you think Karina was being insulting or just polite?
