Honey Boo Boo is all grown up.
Reality star Alana Thompson, 13, shared with Page Six at WE tv’s “Bridezillas” event in New York City how excited she is to be able to drive soon.
“I cannot believe it,” Thompson said. “Next year!”
In August 2020, Thompson will turn 15, which is the required age to apply for a learner’s permit in her home state of Georgia.
The former pageant queen, who stars with her family in “Mama June: From Not to Hot,” said she already has an idea of what kind of car she wants.
“It’s definitely not going to be a Lamborghini,” Thompson said. “I mean, if I get offered that, I’m definitely going to take it. But I’m down to earth, so maybe a Honda.”
Kelly Bensimon, who was also at the event, tried to sway Thompson to get a pickup truck because “it’s the most fun thing and all the cool girls drive [one].”
However, before Thompson starts visiting dealerships, she must learn to drive first. Her sister, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, told Page Six she hasn’t let Thompson practice in her car yet because the teen “doesn’t know how to drive.”
Thompson responded with annoyance, “I’ve got to learn to drive to know how.”
Season 3 of “Mama June: From Not to Hot” premieres Friday night at 9/8c on WE tv.
