Honey Boo Boo just got a huge compliment from comedienne Rosie O'Donnell, who likened the 7-year-old TV personality to the one and only Shirley Temple, RadarOnline.com is reporting.

Rosie, 50, starts out with a southern drawl in a recent video interview with People doing her best Here Comes Honey Boo Boo impersonation of mama June Shannon before complimenting the Georgia-native.

"I think that little girl, Honey Boo Boo, is like Shirley Temple," Rosie says.

"She has a presence and an intellect that goes way beyond her years. Some of the things she says and comes up with, I dunno…"

And it's not just Honey Boo Boo that has captured Rosie's heart — she loves the whole family!

"I love Mama June. I love Sugar Bear. I love Chubbs…I love 'em all," she says.

"I love Smoochie! Look at Mama, Smoochie!" Rosie jokes, pretending to be June. "Look at the judges."

TLC's breakout star has already been signed to Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas specials of the wildly popular Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, along with a new season airing next spring — maybe with a cameo by Rosie.

"I'd love to meet them," she says.

"And buy them a house."
