'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' star Alana Thompson retiring from pageants

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 07/18/2013 

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star Alana Thompson is hanging up her tiara. 

The little seven-year-old beauty queen, who previously appeared on TLC's Toddlers & Tiaras, is retiring from the world of competitive pageantry, In Touch Weekly reported.

"We're done," family matriarch June "Mama" Shannon told In Touch. "We haven't done a pageant for a while, because we're so busy with our show and school and life in general."

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.
