Honey Boo Boo, 16, and boyfriend Dralin Carswell, 20, hit Hollywood to meet fans after fears she's acting 'too mature' | The Sun

HOLLYWOOD became Honeywood over the weekend, as Honey Boo Boo and her family met with fans during their trip to tinseltown.

The reality star, whose real name is Alana Thompson, took time out of their Los Angeles vacation to meet with viewers and followers – for a price.

Around 100 fans turned up to chat and take photos with the family.

Joining Alana, 16, and her boyfriend Dralin, 20, were her sister, Lauryn "Pumpkin" Efird, husband Joshua and their children Bentley, Sylus Ray and daughter Stella Renae.


The Mama June: Road to Redemption stars continue to break away from the shadow of June Shannon, as evident by her absence on the trip.

Earlier this week, the group also visited Universal Studios and Santa Monica Beach.

At each stop, the teen made sure to help take care of her baby cousins.

Alana, who is now being raised by her older sister after she was granted full custody, has seemingly been trying to act beyond her age, and fans are growing concerned.


In recent photos obtained by The Sun, Alana appears in a pink T-shirt and black shorts.

Her hair appears natural, while she has massive fake eyelashes and long fake nails.

She also appears to have heavy makeup on her face.

The family snaps circulated online, where many fans were too distracted by Alana's appearance to focus on the newborns.

One commenter wrote: "Alana's lashes are a LOT and her nails!"

Another added: "It's hard to look at anything but Alana's ridiculous lashes."

A third commenter agreed: "Obnoxious eyelashes are the latest trend. My nieces walk around looking like they are about to take flight I just look at them and smh."


Tickets for the meet and greet started at $25, and went up from there.

There is also growing concern the expanded family really needs the money, after The Sun exclusively revealed that Pumpkin has been struggling to provide for those in her care.

Several factors have come to light regarding the 22-year-old's financial situation.  

One family insider claimed that "Pumpkin told June she didn't have any groceries in the house, and she told Pumpkin 'Well you better get on TikTok and make some d*** n money."

The source added incredulously: "Why would a mother even say something like that?!"

And the L.A. trip could be mixing pleasure and business, as the sisters also reportedly have a meeting lined up with some Hollywood bigwigs about getting their own spin-off reality show.

While fans of the show Mama June: Road to Redemption assume the long-standing reality stars make a good living, in an interview with The Sun in May, Mama June, 42, claimed "What a lot of people don't realize that this filming doesn't pay what people think it does.

"We all have regular entrepreneur jobs after filming- like [my daughter] Jessica works at a daycare. Josh works with a friend of ours. We have events that we go out and do."
