Honey Boo Boo child’s very own reality show is here and has a sneak peek where you can get to know her mama June Shannon before the show airs.

Six-year-old pageant super star Alana Thompson and her self-proclaimed redneck family are starring in Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and they’re doing what the rest of the country is right now – trying to save money.

“Pageants are very, very expensive,” June tells the camera.  “It is not a cheap sport by any means.”

So June and Honey Boo Boo head off to the local auction where they’re going to try and get cheap household goods and food.

“I’m a thrifty saving mommy,” June declares, and says she doesn’t go in with any expectations.

“Sometimes he has what I’m looking for sometimes he don’t. I know some of it is close to expiring or maybe fell off the back of the truck but shoot, it’s cheap.”


Here Comes Honey Boo Boo premieres Wednesday, August 8 at 10 ET/PT on TLC.
