No matter what happens, dancing remains her place to shine. And she will always have her charisma and dance moves.
Mama June’s Drug Problems
We said in the beginning that drug troubles tore the family apart. Mama June had a terrible battle with drug addiction. That battle negatively impacted and affected the life of the whole family. Mama June sold the home to feed her drug habit. This left Alana homeless and made her move with her sister.
And Mama June put her daughters in danger by informing drug dealers where they live. Alana and her sister’s family had to move to a hotel.
As a result, Alana lost her trust in her mother. She now lives with her older sister Pumpkin. Mama, on the other hand, awaits trial after getting arrested on possession of controlled substance charges. She faces jail time.
As a result of “bad people”, Alana, her sister, and her sister’s husband live in a hotel room. She might have to change schools and her sister is hell-bent on moving.
Honey Boo Boo loves her mom, and she will do anything for her, but at this point, she has to try and survive.

Despite her earnings, Alana and her family might get stuck in financial woes. Since Here Comes Honey Boo Boo got dropped from television in 2014, she managed to get in and out of the spotlight. Alana made some guest appearances on other TV shows.
For her appearance on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Alana earned $50,000 per episode. But despite these figures, her family suffers financial woes. That is all because of Mama June’s drug addiction and problems.
According to estimates, Honey Boo Boo’s cash flow now is $500,000. That is as of October 2020.
Honey Boo Boo now tries to lost weight. She and her sister Pumpkin recently got pictured by paparazzi in workout clothes. They exercised as they embark on a new journey.
The two sisters got inspired by Jessica and Anna’s transformation. So, they joined with the family and walk every night trying to lose weight and start a healthy lifestyle.

What is next for Honey Boo Boo?
We know what happens with Honey Boo Boo now. But what the future holds? It remains unclear what she wants to do in the future. After all, she is still in her teenage years.
But she will have a lot of options to pick from. She runs her website, AlanaThompson.com. There, she sells merchandise with some proceeds going to charity. It is a clear sign she has an entrepreneurship spirit inside.
She also has a fashion line. Alana tried her hand at modeling and walked for an LA-based modeling agency. Thompson wants to try and change people’s perspectives on body image.
Whatever she chooses to do in the future, we can expect great things from Alana.
