Does a dolla make you holla? Do you use farting as a weight-loss strategy? Do you love Glitzy, the teacup pig? If this all sounds familiar to you, you've no doubt seen "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," TLC's hit reality show featuring 7-year-old Honey Boo Boo child Alana Thompson and her lovably redneck family.
The show's surprise success (its fourth episode drew more viewers than the Republican National Convention, airing at the same time) has brought fame to Thompson and her family, which includes mom June, dad Sugar Bear, and three sisters. Let's take a closer look at Honey Boo Boo's sisters.
Anna, aka Chickadee
Honey Boo Boo's oldest sister is named Anna. Actually, all the girls are half-sisters: they share June as a mom but have different dads. It's unclear how Anna gained the nickname Chickadee, but the recently-turned-18-year-old, who shares an August 29 birthday with Alana, is growing up fast.
Alana described Anna as "the pregnantest" sister, and on July 26 she gave birth to daughter Kaitlyn. Kaitlyn's dad isn't in the picture, but that's no skin off of Chickadee's hide. "Sometimes my mama gives me pointers," she explained. "Sometimes I just learn on my own."
Jessica, aka Chubbs
Alana described middle half-sis, Jessica, as "my favorite, like my BFF." As you might guess from her nickname, Chubbs is not happy with her weight. A recent episode featured her asking mom June if they could go on a diet together.
The 15-year-old did manage to lose a pound or two (perhaps from mud belly flopping?). But with all the bargain-priced junk food June manages to buy on the cheap, it's a safe bet Chubbs will have a difficult time making good on any serious weight loss.
Lauryn, aka Pumpkin
The youngest of Honey Boo Boo's half-sisters is 12-year-old Lauryn, or "the craziest," if you ask Alana. Lauryn has indeed been shown doing some crazy things on the show - bobbing for pig's feet, anyone? Her most recent crazy antic involved dipping 1-month-old niece Kaitlyn's pacifier into Mountain Dew at one of Alan's pageants and giving it to the baby to, well, pacify her.
