“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” alum Alana Thompson will reportedly compete on “Dancing with the Stars: Juniors.”
Thompson, 12, who’s known by her nickname “Honey Boo Boo,” will reportedly join “Black-ish” star Miles Brown on the competitive dancing show, Us Weekly reported.
Thompson currently stars on “Mama June: From Not to Hot” on WE tv. TLC canceled “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” in 2014 after a story surface claiming June Shannon “Mama June” was dating a convicted child molester. Thompson got her start in reality television after appearing in TLC’s “Toddlers & Tiaras.”
“Dancing with the Stars: Juniors” is a spinoff the competition program which features celebrities paired with pro dancers as they learn dance routines and competing for the show’s Mirror Ball trophy.
ABC has not announced a premiere date for the “Juniors” edition and the network did not immediately comment on the show’s casting.
