Honey Boo Boo SCORES A Spot On Barbara Walters' Coveted Most Fascinating People List!!

Move over, Kim Kardashian! You had your turn last year!

Alana Thompson — aka Honey Boo Boo — has won herself a spot on Barbara Walters' ego-boosting Most Fascinating People list of 2012!

And Babs already has A LOT to say to the haters:

"It's a love story [between Honey Boo Boo and her mother]. It's a very sweet, loving story. A lot of people will say, 'For heaven's sake, this is ridiculous, this is a child at 5 or 6 years old entering beauty contests.' But the relationship between Alana and her mother — that's the story, the two of them. It's very touching."

Ooo GURL! You're preachin' to the converted over here!

But we know there's still a number of people who are easily annoyed by the most infamous of Toddlers & Tiaras. So it's important we include this part of Babs' explanation too:

"Honey Boo Boo is not an obnoxious little girl. She's sweet and loving with her mother and loving with her sisters [Jessica, Lauryn and Anna]. And now Anna has a new baby, and the baby has [three] thumbs — but so what? It'll make you smile."


The world just needs some more smiles! And as long as Honey Boo Boo & Co aren't hurtin' anyone, we support them with cheers and confidence!

Also, getting a spot on this list was 110% deserved!!

Hillary Clinton and Chris Christie also earned a place on the roster, making this year's group a VERY diverse one indeed!! Wonder who #1 will be… hmmm…

    I can' think of any truly facinating people. our leaders, entertainers, sports people and everyday people are just mediocre.

    I gave Barbara a "break" last year with the Kardashians Krap but this is the nail in the coffin. I have lost all respect for BW. How sad when there are SOOOO many other people that fit the bill.

  3. 3

    It is not people like Kim K and Honey Booboo who are fascinating. What is truly fascinating is that people follow these reality stars to the extent that they do. The fact that people are willing to spend their evenings watching this manipulated, often scripted, brain-numbing mush is, indeed, fascinating.
