Honey Boo Boo has been on a whirlwind tour of talk shows and interviews since becoming the most interesting thing on television since the Kardashians, and apparently it’s starting to catch up to her. She’s tired, folks, and she’s sick of you all coming up to her in public when she’s eating or walking through a mall or farting in the Wal-Mart checkout line.

During a recent interview with Dr. Drew, Honey Boo Boo, a.k.a. Alana, feigned sleep to avoid answering his questions, much to her mother’s chagrin.

“Alana, come on so we can get this done and go,” she said.

When Alana finally “woke up”, she gave a firm and resounding “NO!” when asked if she was enjoying her newfound fame, saying she doesn’t like it when strangers come up to her.

It’s hard to blame her, really. After a few years of exposure on TLC’s “Toddlers And Tiaras” as a Southern girl with a whole lot of head-snappin’ attitude, she landed her own gig on the network and has cameras shoved in her face at all hours of the day, making it impossible for her to live a normal life when she goes out in public with her family, who are all just as–if not more so–redneckognizable as she is. And, of course, with fame comes the inevitable haters who make it their business to tear down a seven-year old and her family/way of life because that’s what trolls do. But Honey Boo Boo, as you can see, is done caring.
