LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Reality stars unite!
Add Snookie and JWoww to the long list of Honey Boo Boo fans.
“I love her!” Jenni “JWoww” Farley told Access Hollywood, when asked about 7-year-old Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson at the “Jersey Shore” Season 6 premiere party in New York City.
“That show is my guilty pleasure,” added Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi.
The longtime reality vets said they are not only fans of the Alana’s TLC reality hit, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” they have been fans of the pint-sized pageant queen since she first hit the small screen on the network’s “Toddlers & Tiaras.”
“Nicole knows, even before [the show] even came out, I was like, obsessed with her,” JWoww shared.
Both ladies agree Honey Boo Boo, Mama June and their family have many similarities to the “Jersey Shore” bunch.
“They’re kind of like us in a sense – they don’t care, they’re a big family, they love who they are. We love who we are,” JWoww said. “They’re different, but at the end of the day they’re not doing anything harmful. They’re just having a great time.”
And Snooki said that despite the family’s quirkiness, they appear to be a loving, good-hearted group of people and should be treated as such.
“They’re honestly like, a really good family,” Snooks told Access. “And just because they’re different, people make fun of them and I think that’s so disgusting.”
