Rosie O’Donnell Offers To Buy A House For Honey Boo Boo And Family

Rosie O'Donnell Offers To Buy A House For Honey Boo Boo And Family

Rosie O’Donnell wants to help out Honey Boo Boo and the youngster’s family in a big way — by offering to buy a house for the clan.

In an interview with People, Rosie said she’s a big fan of the reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and can even do a perfect impression of Mama June. Her affection for the show and the family goes far beyond most other viewers, as the comedian and former TV host wants to help out Honey Boo Boo and family in a big way.

“I’d love to meet them,” Rosie O’Donnell says, “And buy them a house.”

The offer, whether sincere or not, would certainly be a big help for the family. Their home in McIntyre, Georgia has railroad tracks running through the backyard, not the best or safest environment, especially for a child as energetic as Alana.

Even if the offer is something of a joke, it appears Rosie O’Donnell’s love for the family is definitely sincere.

“I love Mama June. I love Sugar Bear. I love Chubbs,” she said, referring to some of the family members by their nicknames. “I love ‘em all.”

Rosie O’Donnell saved some of her biggest praise for the star, 7-year-old Alana Thompson, affectionately referred to by the family as Honey Boo Boo. Rosie compared her to the pinnacle of child stars, Shirley Temple, and said that Alana has “a presence and an intellect that goes way beyond her years.”

Honey Boo Boo and her family may not need Rosie O’Donnell’s help if they want a new house. As The Hollywood Reporter noted, the family is seeking a raise for their next season and wants $10,000 per episode.

    only 10 grand they should get 1/2 mill per season becauce sombody is makeing that the network?

  2. Lori Richards

    Doubt they would take the home from her. Recently the network offered to buy them a new home and June refused saying that they do things in the community at Christmas time and do not want to leave that location. Heck Rosie can buy me a house, I'd take it!

    Perfect, the fat old Honey Boo Boo and the fat young Honey Boo Boo.

  4. Angie N Robert Hernandez-Cole

    buy me a house rosie.. they make tons of money from this show.. help a struggling family!

  5. Tammy Pelletier-Pierce

    Seriously.. they make money from a dumb network for being lazy slobs! Buy a house for a soldier or someone deserving of it. I cant believe they pay people for being slobs nowadays!

  6. Janet Thompson

    it doesn't seem to me that they need a house, as they seem to be very happy in their surroundings as it is. from what I can see they don't need anyone to buy them a house, they are making money on that show.

  7. Bill Whitlock

    Rosie is one person who should have been sterilized before coming of breeding age. Along with 80% of the population. Oh, and Tammy… this thought applies to you also.

  8. Deborah Kumle

    They may be slobs however, look at Kris Jenner, she uses her daughters to make money, and puts her family on TV too. Honey Boo Boo may be what you define as a "Slob", but they are real, what you see is what you get. Compare them to the Kardashians who are Fakes, and ill-mannered.

  9. Carolyn Skagen

    I can not comprehend why any one would watch such a show!

    Real headline." Rosie trying to resurrect failing career with free publicity" she doesn't care about that fat little porky fat f@@king kid………

  11. Carol Schwartz

    Tammy, I have to agree with you! there are soldiers that have lost their homes after coming back from fighting for our freedom, Bill! rosie do something good for someone that is keeping you FREE! a VETERAN!

  12. Teri Klotz

    You may not like what you see about this family and you may not agree with everything they do BUT they are a family and stay true to each other and live life the way they want to and by not hurting others in the meantime. The reality to this show is that it is what it is and June(the mom) wants to make sure that they stay true to the way they were before TLC came knocking at their door. Don't like it Don't watch it, their are many other reality shows that people are watching on TV that a far worse. I would take Honey Boo Boo and her family over any episode of the Kardashians and their so called "REALITY".

  13. Paula Qualls Gurley

    I do not watch "Honey Boo Boo", or "the Kardashians" and I despise Rosie. I really don't care about any of them. I just think of all the homeless children, all the hungry children, all the children who don't have it anywhere near as good as "Honey Boo Boo" and wonder why they aren't the ones getting all the attention.

    Love my job, since I've been bringing in $132h… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I'm making it online… Here's what I do, http://Buzz17.cøm.

  15. Sandy Hutto Devura

    I hate most of those reality shows. They are really dumbing down our society. I like to live in denial and pretend that this isn't the new norm

  16. John DeYoung

    But you can't that's why the morale fibers of this nation has been reduced to this kind of crap. Television just sells the idea.

  17. Kristen Almeida

    Kardashians and boo boo are one in the same. Rosie is ridiculous. Society creates it all too by watching

  18. Ashley Bearden

    you have GOT to be kidding me…this show is disgusting and it exploits their child. why not buy a home for someone who really needs it and doesn't feed off the public with the humiliation of their family. buy it for a struggling family or a soldier or someone who's life it would impact. these people are NOT hurting for money or they would have their own tv show. pretty much any redneck, uncivilized person that doesn't hesitate to jump in some scene for publicity can make it these days in the tv world and they don't need rosie o donnel to help them get there.

  19. Linda Fisher

    Bill: Rosie didn't give birth, she adopted them and her previous girlfriend gave birth to one of the children.

  20. Heather O'shea

    How would a struggling family be able to pay the mortage?

  21. Deanna Wheeler

    That is fucked up. they make money so they dont need it. . Help people that really need help. I need throat surgery but cant get it because i dont have money. but it is ok. in already starting to lose my voice so i guess the ones that have everything or dont need anything gets all the help.

  22. Jassy Bella

    I love honey boo boo but seriously buy a house gor a family who seriously needs it

  23. Hanna Anderson

    Wow. Seriously reality shows make me so mad. I work my ass off, pay rent, bills, pay part of my moms mortgage. And I rarely eat normal meals during the week. Just got my medical cut off, type one diabetic… Yea. Pretty sure I hate this family, and her mother is all to blame.

  24. Linda Fisher

    Rosie O'Donnell has given a lot to those in need (especially children) and has adopted the children she does have since becoming a celebrity. I don't understand why people choose to hate others when none of us really know these people nor have any of us walked in their shoes. It's seems so easy to judge another when what really matters is the condition of our own heart & soul.

  25. Cherri Hairston

    I don't care for reality shows I caught a glimpse of honey boo boo she's cute in a country hick kinda way.. I guess if its Rosies money she can do what she wants…but I think it would be great to give to the wounded warrior program….just my opinion.

  26. Jeanette L. Hathaway-Dickinson

    Come on people where have our morals gone too…Honey Boo Boo was on a Toddler and Tiara program and lost. Her mother gives her Mountain Dew and Energy Drink mixed together to stay awake and "perform" if that is what you call it. She lost…there are more children in this country that need clothes, PARENTS, food and a better life than giving a family who lives the way they live by choice. They make themselves look bad. I have family who mud rides and they act human. And if you did not know the the channel gave them a raise? Why how hard is it to act ignorant, gas all over and shove food in your mouth! Come on gets some better writers and take them off! What does that teach other children? I do not get what and why they do this?

  27. Patricia Owens

    looks like a spoiled brat and family feeding off her buy a home for someone who really needs it, or help rebuild a neighborhood speacially if shes going to make 10,000 bucks and episode 2 shows would be what my husband makes busting his ass every day working get with the real program.

  28. Lori Buelteman Walcher

    Thats crazy. Stars are useless waste of space. Over paid idiots.

  29. Christine Ackerman

    This child and her family are ridiculous! Stupidist show ever i find nothing funny and the entirety of the family repulsive for the dumb stuff she says and does! If that's all it takes to make thousands of dollars………shit I can act stupid and embarrass myself and family on tv Also…complete waste of money do something useful! !!!!

  30. Donna Waldo Ogdahl

    I hate Rosie O'Donnell for thinking this family is more deserving than others….

  31. Jennifer Hopkins

    Really! What is wrong with this world, where the idiots who leach off their children and the system are handed everything and those who work for everything they have get NOTHING. My husband lost his hearing and suffered brain damage in service to this country, permanent damage received during basic training to defend this country. Buy us a house, hand us everything for nothing. But then, we would respect what we have as much as these spoiled brats who never have to work for what they get.

    I am grateful for everything we have, and for the help we have received, as well as the wonderful gifts that have been sent our way, but it still irritates me to no end that we have to work for everything we have, and worthless slobs are given a free ride.

  32. Peggy Seck

    You got to admit that they are big on family (a good thing), BUT they could teach their children some good manners and etiquette while still allowing them to be "who they want to be." What are they thinkng??? Or, maybe, they don't teach manners because THEY were never taught? Just a thought.

  33. Peggy Seck

    Oh, and at $10,000 per week, they can buy their own new house. Use some of the money to learn good manners.

  34. Ryan Pawlak

    Leave that poor girl alone she needs to be a little pig and play in the mud and act a fool its making her rich ! I'd dress in drag and act a fool for millions I don't do that nor would I ever do that but if they thru so much money at me I'd set my family up for life I'd act a fool !!! Number one show in America !!! End of story acting a fool pays huge and America loves a jackass or court jester !!

  35. Gerard Scott Waite

    on the air or off the air, there are better things to watch!

  36. Sylvia Solis

    Shoot Buy Me A House, I don't even have rooms or a stove and live by train tracks!!

  37. Melissa Brasuell-Tackett

    oh please comparing her to shirley temple is a total insult… I am sorry I think it shows how bad things are getting when we reward horrible parents and disgusting behavior. I agree instead of buying them a house… donate that money to a worthy cause or as suggested for a veteran…

  38. Melissa Brasuell-Tackett

    Cindy Conley-Pelletier she is a bratty child from toddlers and tiaras .. a show about little girls dressing up like 25 year old hookers for beauty pageants .. and now that she is to old to be a toddler she gets her own show …. your not missing a thing … as a mom 2 min of those shows makes me want to throw up they are just so bad

  39. Sylvia Solis

    Rosie Buy Me A House! I don't have bedrooms and live by train tracks, and I work a full time job single parent of 3 girls and everyday is a struggle… I leave it in GODS hands wishing one day I can own a beautiful home and won't be embrassing to have anyone over cause we don't have room…

  40. Sylvia Solis

    Honey Boo Boo, they don't a house if they got money for her pagents and want $10,000 an episode I don't think they need a new House…

  41. Kristine Fisher

    I just lost all respect for Rosie O'Donnell and TLC! Now they want $10,000 per episode? They can buy their own damn house! and the idiots on the Executive Board of TLC would probably pay it! They're ALL DISGUSTING!

  42. Susan Blackwood Hunt

    The most stupid show on T.V. I think the parent's should be arrested for child abuse. Just the junk they let them drink and eat is enough to kill them. Sometimes I just can't believe they are for real. The big, fat, laszy Mom makes me so sick that I can't sttand to look at her. I just would love to know what grade they made it to in school before they dropped out. I find nothing funny about that stupid show.

  43. Hope Merryman

    WHATEVER! I use to like Rosie…but I think this just changed my mind! That family makes enough being on tv….why not help me out? my daughter does pageants and we live in a single wide trailer that is 34 years old! Why not help people like me out? This really makes me mad! If they have the money to stuff food in their over weight kids mouth then they should have money to get a new place to live.

  44. Adell Bolden-Dawson

    Sorry that they have RR tracks running through their backyard but they chose to take money that they had to enter her into pageants instead of trying to make a bad situation better. I neither condone the Kardashian idea of making money by exploiting their kids. BUT…. there are way too many children and families out there struggling for them to through away funds to these folks. You have students that do not eat except when they go to school. Students who only go to college because they are so poor they're eligible for grants and scholarships but have nothing for clothes, food etc. Let's get real America; we are in a sad state of affairs and we aren't showing the next generation what a backbone and responsibility is.

  45. Cathy Scaggs

    HOMELESS CHILDREN AND THEIR MOM AND DAD ARE SOME LOST A JOBS AND PEOPLE ARE HARD WORK FOR PAY BILLS AND RAISE CHILDREN! I AM MOM OF 4 AND I AM VERY POOR BECAUSE I TRYING LOOKING FOR JOB BUT JOBS NOT LET ME GET JOBS BECAUSE THEY ARE AFRAID OF I AM DEAF! BUY ME A HOUSE ROSIE!

  46. Debbie Booth Lazzara

    And who are you to say how Rosie spends her money and who or who isn't deserving of it? Go spend your own money how ever you want too and let Rosie spend hers however she wants too.
