Rosie O’Donnell: I “Love” Honey Boo Boo’s Family, Want to “Buy Them a House”

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes



Rosie O’Donnell is a big fan of Honey Boo Boo (Alana Thompson).

But it isn’t just 7-year-old beauty pageant vet and star of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” she likes.

The talk show host says she’s taken with the entire family.

“I love ’em all,” says O’Donnell. “I love Mama June. I love Sugar Bear. I love Chubbs,” referring to various family members by their nicknames.

O’Donnell, who even does an impersonation of family matriarch Mama June, tells People that she thinks Honey Boo Boo is like Shirley Temple.

“She has a presence and an intellect that goes way beyond her years,” says the comedienne.

In fact, she’s such a fan, O’Donnell says she’d “love to meet” the family that lives by a railroad in rural Georgia, and “buy them a house.”
