Here comes… an intervention. Nine-year-old Honey Boo Boo is not healthy, and now ‘The Doctors’ are stepping in before it’s too late. But is Momma June to blame? We all remember the G0 Go Juice days!
If you are a fan of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, then you would know Alana Thompson isn’t the healthiest 9-year-old. The little reality star made an appearance on an episode of The Doctors on Feb. 25, to discuss her unhealthy diet. They told her she’s considered obese and are blaming one person — Mama June Shannon!
Honey Boo Boo’s Health Intervention: ‘The Doctors’ Step In
It’s been awhile since we’ve seen Alana and her mom, Shannon, on TV. Now the pair are back, but the reasoning behind it is scary — Honey Boo Boo’s health! Hosts Dr. Travis Stork and Dr. Jennifer Ashton of The Doctors, brought in Alana for an intervention.
During the show, the two doctors confronted Mama June about Alana’s terrible eating habits. Let’s just say she’s addicted to fried food — LOTS of it!
“I love a lot of stuff deep-fried,” Honey Boo Boo told the cameras. “I love deep-fried Oreos.” Yes, fried oreos are absolutely delicious, but they shouldn’t be consumed at the rate Alana eats them.
“I didn’t see anything in that fridge that’s either going to improve Alana’s weight or decrease inflammation in her body,” Dr. Travis told Mama June after admitting he checked the family’s fridge. “And, I’m going to be honest, you need to take some responsibility here … I want to see a bit of a light bulb, where you say, ‘Maybe I can do better, maybe even a heck of a lot better.’”
Of course, no child wants to eat their veggies, but Mama June needs to set a better example for Honey Boo Boo.
Mama June Promises To Change Alana’s Diet
Shannon didn’t like hearing her grocery shopping choices were the culprits and instead blamed Alana’s weight on asthma medication. But the doctor knows best, and he followed up with, “It’s not her steroids that are causing her to be obese. It’s the foods she’s eating.”
Then Mama June got a wake-up call when the doctors gave her and Alana healthier versions of their favorite foods. The result? Both mom and daughter thoroughly enjoyed the new foods, and promised to come back in May to check in and show off their new, healthy lifestyles.
We hope the pair really take their diets seriously, especially Honey Boo Boo!
