Life in the spotlight isn’t always a party, as young celeb Honey Boo Boo has made clear. Sick of sitting still for interviews day in and day out, the Here Come Honey Boo Boo star recently caught attention for pretending to sleep during an appearance on Dr. Drew. June Shannon later took a moment to clear the air on her Facebook page. What did she have to say in her daughter’s defense?
Mama June has been catching a lot of flak for her daughter’s poor behavior on Dr. Drew. She wants her fans to know that they haven’t heard the entire story. The famous mother took to Facebook to share her frustration, explaining, “they didn’t show the other part of that they edited out the rest like most news and media does to get a reaction out of ppl.”
So what really happened? According to Mama June, Honey Boo Boo’s fan-hating comment was followed up by, “ im just kidding I LOVE seeing my self on TV but I don’t like when ppl take alot of pics of me.” The picture complaint was aimed at the paparazzi, as their incessant photography seemed to have ruined an otherwise pleasant evening for the reality star. “the night b4 at the fountains on the walk of fame at the shopping center she went to play in the fountains after kimmel and about 50 paparazzi followed and cause it caused alot of attention they turned the fountain off she was so mad bout that.”
Okay, we can understand that. Honey Boo Boo is only 7 years old and having the fountains turned off would be a real bummer. Especially if the fountains were stopped in response to a crowd of paparazzi.
June Shannon insists that, for the most part, Honey Boo Boo really enjoys being on TV. “trust me if she hated being on tv I would b the first to stop production period cause my kids r #1 so I hope this clears up some of the questions from that interview ..”
The Dr. Drew interview was likely just a case of Honey Boo Boo being…well, Honey Boo Boo. Nothing to get worked up over!
