Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson Is Starting an Acting Career
All of the attention might be on Mama June and her total body makeover right now, but let’s not forget who brought fame to the family in the first place.
No, not with another reality makeover show like her mom’s From Not to Hot.
That being said, she is doing more TV — just this time it won’t be as herself, per se.
In an interview with Good Morning America this week, the mother-daughter pair teased Alana’s acting debut.
Amy Robach explains, “She said she’s going to be on a scripted show, which means Alana may be an actress soon.”
No further details have been released, but judging by the tween’s big personality, she’s made for this industry. After all, she was a pageant queen when we met her on Toddlers & Tiaras all those years ago.
If and when she does break out in Hollywood, it sounds like the Southern gal has her eyes on some famous hunks.
While playing a game about celebrity matches with E! News, Alana revealed a pretty major crush on Zac Efron.
“I love me some Zac Efron!” she gushed, nearly breathless.
She’s also a fan of Justin Bieber and Drake, though it seems to be for their music above anything.
Then again, celebs aren’t really the focus of the middle schooler’s love life right now. In fact, it seems she has her own real-life boyfriend!
She didn’t share too many details about her beau, though we did learn his name is Justin and she loves his “personality.”
Sounds about right for her age.
Mama June: From Not to Hot airs Friday, April 7 at 9 p.m. ET on WE tv.
