“Dancing With the Stars” better stock up on go-go juice … Honey Boo Boo is joining the cast.
According to our sources, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson has been in Los Angeles for the past week training for the new season of the show. We’re told she’s been seen going in and out of practice and is taking it very seriously.
Our sources say Mama June is in town as well to help Honey Boo Boo get ready for the show.
Honey Boo Boo will be one of the kids chasing Mirrorball Trophy in a special kids season that will be called “Dancing With the Stars Junior.” Much like the recent season featuring athletes, the “Juniors” edition will feature famous kids.
The show has yet to officially be announced but ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said during the Television Critics Association winter press tour that show will air at some point, it was just a matter of casting.
We reached out to reps for Honey Boo Boo, calls have not yet been returned.
