If you are thinking of “talking trash” to Rosie O’Donnell about famed starlet Honey Boo Boo, then think again.
The talk show host and media mogul is reportedly a supporter of the pint-sized princess and has even likened her to Shirley Temple. “I think that little girl, Honey Boo Boo, she is like Shirley Temple,” O’Donnell told a media outlet about the 7-year-old beauty queen and reality show star. “She has a presence and an intellect that goes way beyond her years”, O’Donnell added.
O’Donnell is reportedly not only a fan of the show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Honey Boo Boo herself but she has also offered to purchase a house for “Miss Boo Boo” and her family. It has been reported that TLC offered to provide the family with a larger home; however, Mama June refused. In fact, Mama June wanted to stay in their current Georgia and reportedly remain humble and centered.
Even if they ever wanted to purchase a new and bigger house Honey Boo Boo and her family are reportedly paid between $15,000 and $20,000 per episode to star in their reality show.
Additional reports indicate that as the show grows in popularity, it now averages 2.3 million viewers per episode.
