After the mother-daughter duo competed together on Wednesday’s episode of The Masked Singer, the teen opened up about her relationship with her mother during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
Honey Boo Boo– whose real name is Alana Thompson- said: “I feel like right now, we’re definitely working on us and trying to fix the relationship.
“I don’t feel like it’s 110 percent fixed, but it’s definitely getting there, that’s for sure.”
In order to regain the trust of her family, June moved closer to her kids as they film the latest season of Mama June: Road to Redemption.
During the interview, June said they now see each other “every day.”
The TV personality added: “We see a lot of each other during production, because we film five days a week, and so, I live probably 15 minutes from there now.”
The estranged pair grew even closer when they prepared to compete on The Masked Singer together.
While reflecting on their short stint on the show, June said: “It was very emotional.
“It was kinda great that it was coming from our 10-year anniversary of being on reality TV, that happened Oct. 12 of this year, just last month and now we’re on The Masked Singer, which is huge for both of us because Alana did Dancing With the Stars, and for us, it’s one of the biggest things that we’ve done in our career.
“So, I’m hoping that with everybody seeing that, we can do more projects similar to this one.”
BEACH BALL DEBUT
Unfortunately for the contestants, their time on The Masked Singer only last one episode.
The pair competed as the Beach Ball on Wednesday’s episode, which featured them singing Miley Cyrus’ Party in the USA.
Following their elimination, fans rushed to Twitter to slam their singing skills.
One fan wrote: “That had to be the worst performance I ever heard on this show.”
Another added: “Mama June was a tiny bit better than Honey Boo Boo but they were both tone deaf. So I see why they didn’t last past tonight.”
A third chimed in: “What a waste of an episode.”
LIVING WITH PUMPKIN
The former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star currently lives with her older sister Lauryn “Pumpkin” Efird, who has been given legal guardianship of the teen after June was arrested on possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia in 2019.
At the time, she faced jail time for the criminal charges.
In March 2021, Mama June told The Sun in an exclusive interview that she was working on her relationship with Alana after completing a stint in rehab.
Viewers of the family’s show have watched as Alana has broken down and struggled with her mother’s absence.
