HONEY BOO BOO will be 16 years old on Saturday, and she just did a feature, along with a photo shoot, for "Teen Vogue".
BTW, she's not Honey Boo Boo anymore. She says, quote, "My mama did not name me Honey Boo Boo. My name is Alana."
Now she's Alana Frances Thompson, and sadly, her reality show fame has made it difficult to connect with people at school.
"To be honest, I do not have many friends. At all. I don't trust nobody really, so I don't have friends."
But she's got some self love, she says, quote, "Just because I got a little bit of extra meat on my bones, you want to hate me? I'll never get body shaming. I do not care. As long as I like myself, I'm good."
Alana has had a lot to deal with thanks to her mother's substance abuse issues, but she seems to have weathered the storm.
Quote, "When my mama got real bad with her [drug use], I didn't know where I was going to end up. I'm proud of myself for how far I've come."
Good for her!! YOU Go boo boo!
