When Honey Boo Boo appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last week, we saw her show off her cheerleading skills while appearing almost shy throughout the interview. But, according to Christy O’Shoney, a woman who attended the taping, we didn’t exactly see how it all went down.
“I know this because I was there, and from where I was sitting, Honey Boo Boo — let’s not mince words — was a tiny, dimpled monster,” she wrote in a blog post. Christy went on to explain that most of the reality star and her mother, Mama June’s, interview got cut from what was shown on TV. “The broadcast left out all of the eerie tension,” she explained.
What exactly did that entail? “Mama June was continually either answering questions on behalf of Boo Boo or mumbling answers to her,” the blogger added. “The quick wit we’ve come to expect from Honey Boo Boo was nowhere to be seen, but instead it was fed to her by her pageant mom.”
The most notable moment, Christy said, was, “when [Honey Boo Boo] became so fed up that she actually struck Mama June. Up until this point, Fallon had done a great job navigating Alana’s weird behavior, but it was at this moment when he became positively awesome. ‘NEVER hit your mother!’ he exclaimed, in a voice that was serious with just a hint of joke.”
Time to break out the discipline, Mama June!
