Usually when someone is wearing no shoes, smudged eye makeup, and nodding off during a television interview, it's because s/he is on Intervention. In this case, though, Alana Thompson is speaking to Dr. Drew for a sit-down which airs on his HLN show tonight, and the results are just as sad. While the show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo displays the family's polarizing, warts-and-all lifestyle that triumphantly revels in the "it is what it is" philosophy promulgated by their matriarch Mama, this interview, sadly, suggests that fame has perhaps morphed that into "it is what it's become."
The interview was conducted during Alana and Mama's whirlwind media blitz trip to L.A., where they stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live, responded to a viral video Christopher Walken made, and hung out with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Lisa Vanderpump and her dog Giggy. It's no wonder that Alana seems exhausted in the Dr. Drew clip.
