While her sly grin in the above profile shot is saying everything that I conjure up when I ask a male companion for $5 and a ride to the liquor store, I will forever bow down.

Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson is getting to the paper.

The Thompsons reportedly pulled in $50,000 per episode (shade as a family) for their hit TLC reality show ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ last year according to Parade’s annual “What People Earn” issue, which reveals the incomes of some of Hollywood’s highest paid celebrities.

gabby1 Quick Quotes: Gabby Douglas Doesnt Care What You Think About Her Hair    Thanks!

Days after becoming the first African American gymnast to win her sport’s biggest prize Gabby Douglas tells the Associated Press that she was left confused when she discovered people online were debating her hair. Girl, I am too.

“I don’t know where this is coming from. What’s wrong with my hair? I’m like, `I just made history and people are focused on my hair?’ It can be bald or short, it doesn’t matter about (my) hair. Nothing is going to change. I’m going to wear my hair like this during beam and bar finals. You might as well just stop talking about it. I don’t think people should be worried about that. We’re all champions and we’re all winners. I just say that it’s kind of, a stupid and crazy thought to think about my hair.”
