Rosie O'Donnell makes no secret of her sometimes controversial opinions, but this is one we certainly were NOT anticipating!
The comedienne recently opened up about her new favorite reality series, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, and even went on to compare little Alana Thompson to none other than a young Shirley Temple!
We KID you not!
"I love Mama June. I love Sugar Bear. I love Chubbs. I love 'em all. [Honey Boo Boo] She has a presence and an intellect that goes way beyond her years. I'd love to meet them, and buy them a house."
Don't get us wrong, that family and their crazy antics tickle us pink just as much as the next person, but that is some SERIOUS fandom right there!
Perhaps if we're all lucky, this will lead to a very special guest star for the reality show's second season!
Think about all of the AH-MAZING-ness that would entail!
