Thompson apparently just doesn't have the time to continue her pursuit of crowns, as Shannon explained Honey Boo Boo is now a brand of which they're trying to expand on.
"Alana's trying different things, but I don't think she's found that new niche yet that she wants to get into," Shannon said.
While pageants will become a thing of Thompson's past, she reportedly still "misses the stage" and plans to keep in touch with friends she's made throughout the years.
"We still have all our pageant friends. We go along and cheer on our other pageant friends," Shannon told the magazine.
