Honey Boo Boo Hits Mom On ‘Jimmy Fallon': Is She Out Of Control?

Fri, June 20, 2014 3:30pm EST by 11 Comments

Eek. What’s going on with Honey Boo Boo? An audience member at ‘The Tonight Show’ claims the TV personality was a ‘monster’ during the taping, and even got violent with her mom, Mama June. Now, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVE details about the alleged incident.

Honey Boo Boo, 9, did not impress one audience member while taping an interview on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on June 11. Christy O’Shoney of Salon.com claims that Honey Boo Boo was a “tiny, dimpled monster.” But is that the truth? Click inside to find out!

Honey Boo Boo Hit Mama June On ‘The Tonight Show’ — What You Didn’t See

Uh oh. A new report claims that the Honey Boo Boo interview that The Tonight Show aired on June 11 was edited — a LOT.

Not only was Honey Boo Boo — real name Alana Thompson — misbehaved, but she also allegedly hit her mom during the interview, reports audience member Christy O’Shoney.

“[…] I was there, and from where I was sitting, Honey Boo Boo — let’s not mince words — was a tiny, dimpled monster,” Christy wrote in an eye-opening article on Salon.

One of the more disturbing aspects that was allegedly left out of Alana’s interview is when the 9-year-old girl physically attacked Mama June.

“[…] the most notable moment to be left out of Honey Boo Boo’s appearance on ‘The Tonight Show’ was when she became so fed up that she actually struck Mama June.”

In Christy’s article, she claims that this was the only time Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon lost his cool with Alana.

“Up until this point, Fallon had been doing a great job of 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 a joke, and the studio audience erupted in applause,” Christy explains. “Finally, we thought, someone is addressing this child’s attitude.”

Although everyone is used to Alana’s antics, being outright disrespectful is not the same thing as being a sassy little girl with a bit of redneck twang. Obviously, Christy agrees with this sentiment, and openly wonders if the Honey Boo Boo that America celebrates actually exists off-screen.

“The Alana I saw on ‘The Tonight Show’ set was visibly troubled: disrespectful, defiant, entitled. Of course, with a bit of editing, ‘disrespectful’ becomes ‘precocious,’ ‘defiant’ becomes ‘sassy,’ and ‘entitled’ becomes ‘confident,'” she wrote.

However, how much of Christy’s report was actually true?

Honey Boo Boo Was Just Being An 8-Year Old, Eyewitness Tells Us

As usual, here at HollywoodLife.com we are eager to find out the truth about everything. Thankfully, we were able to track down another audience member from Honey Boo Boo’s appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon who tells us that Christy’s report is nothing but exaggerated lies.

“I was there — 95% of what actually happened was filmed and was what you saw on the air,” an audience member tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

Interesting! Our eyewitness also reports that Alana never physically lashed out at her mom, either.

“She did not hit Mama June in a violent way, she simply shooed her mother away, maybe tapped her leg, she was just being a typical 8-year-old. It’s totally exaggerated,” the source explains. “Jimmy did tell her not to hit her mom, but he did it in a comedic way and the audience laughed with him.”

“Alanna is obviously a sassy little 8-year-old, she was just being herself,” the witness continued.

You can check out an unedited clip from Alana’s Tonight Show appearance above, which apparently took place just moments after Jimmy disciplined her for hitting her mom.

I think she was her usual ubnoxius self. She has outgrown her cuteness and now she looks like an overweight bra with no manners. I felt bad for June and that tv has once again exploited a family until it emplodes. Hopefully this will be the last season.

Nothing weird in the video other than her pom poms accidently swiping her mom.Maybe they edited the video but it’s June’s fault as Alana is getting famous and she thinks everything revolves around her.June needs to correct her before she gets to old and she can’t control her anymore.

This is what happens when a family is living off the money a child earns. History is replete with child “stars” whose adult lives are desperately troubled. TLC and Bravo earn their mega profits by exploiting the weak, greedy and stupid for the pleasure of the viewing public.
When the cameras disappear, Honey Boo Boo will probably follow the path of her mother and sisters: get fatter, have several children and fade into oblivion.

You apparently don’t know that the money that is coming in from this show all goes into trust accounts for the children. They are still living off of what they were before the show because they did not want to alter their life and become one of those families that falls apart over money. Although they are a little backwards mama June knows how to be frugal and prepare for their futures. She wants her kids to have the opportunity to go to college without financial worries which is something she didn’t have.

I didn’t see anything inappropriate in this clip. Seems like they were just being playful.

You can check out an unedited clip from Alana’s Tonight Show appearance above, which apparently took place just moments after Jimmy disciplined her for hitting her mom. Note the clip took place AFTER he disciplined her…Reading is important. Yes, 9 year old can change quickly like the wind!

You must work for this site because this video’s only purpose, (same goes for this “ground breaking must-know” report), is publicity. The headline refers to something that the provided clip does not even show. Reading IS important, as is not becoming a sheep. Where is the footage of Honey Blub punching her mom? Oh it happened just before this clip? Okay cool I’ll just watch the footage following the alleged incident that initially brought me to this page in the first place, and just believe all the text is completely accurate.

Nobody is doing this little girl any good by keeping her in the limelight. This is a tragedy waiting to happen.
