HONEY Boo Boo’s older sister Pumpkin has admitted she is hoping to send the 14-year-old reality star to LA to get her away from their troubled matriarch, Mama June.
Honey Boo Boo, real name Alana, has been living with Pumpkin – real name Lauryn – and her husband Josh since June began using drugs and fell in with current boyfriend Geno Doak.
Now, in a deleted scene from WETV’s Mama June: Family Crisis, Alana reveals her plans to Josh – who is more concerned about Alana’s education.
“I really do think its a good idea for Alana, she has more opportunities than she does here, a far as what she wants to do for a career,” says Pumpkin.
“We literally just got her in our house and settled in,” Josh reminds her before Pumpkin explains her reasoning.
“We cant even get frozen yogurt without paparazzi hounding us for an update on Mama… they will be looking for Mama so my hopes are me and Alana are there, they won’t hound our asses,” she said.
“It’s better for her to get away from what’s going on with Alana, and a lot of times Alana doesn’t get to do the things she wants to do because momma stops her.”
But with Josh concerned that Alana may miss school, Alana reassured him that “she’ll be back way before school even starts, Papa Bear” and Josh acknowledged that “the biggest thing [is] she doesn’t have your Momma on her back so the opportunities are countless”.
“But when she gets back she’s going on a damn schedule and she has to do her homework,” he concludes.
The family currently live in Gordon, Georgia, and Alana has been living with her sister and her two-year-old daughter Ella.
Sources recently told The Sun that the teen had decided she wants to slim down after fans of her new show Mama June: From Not to Hot started making comments about her weight.
Both she and Pumpkin have also been inspired by sisters Jessica and Anna’s recent body transformations and have decided to go on their own health kick.
Jessica recently had a tummy tuck and liposuction as part of $111,000 plastic surgery makeover she underwent with older sister Anna.
She weighed 243 pounds when she went into surgery and has since slimmed down to 189 pounds – a massive 54 pound loss.
Honey Boo Boo, 14, and Pumpkin, 20, now want to start their own body transformation and have started walking every day and eating healthily
