Honey Boo Boo and Glitzy the pig

A sparkly pink dress (and equally shiny eye makeup, of course) can make a 6-year-old a beauty queen. But when it comes to edging out the competition on the pageant circuit, Alana Thompson (better know as Honey Boo Boo) has a very special accessory.
And, yes, it's pink (with a rather sparkly name).
The pint-sized star of TLC's Here Comes Honey Boo Boo
has big plans to incorporate Glitzy, her pet pig, into her glamor routine. But she may have to rethink her squealing secret weapon, if her mom, June Shannon – also know as the "Coupon Queen" – loses any more beauty sleep.
"I think it's cute to see Glitzy and her play together," June says in a sneak peek at Wednesday's episode (watch below). But after Honey Boo Boo's hungry pet woke her up at dawn, she said, "Hello, I'm asleep. I ain't got time to feed your a–."
As the Southern belle continues to prep for her next pageant – in between couponing, which her mom last described
as "even better than sex" – it doesn't look like she has any plans to switch up her act.
"Glitzy, we're going to be the prettiest girls at the pageant," the 6-year-old Toddlers & Tiaras
alum says in the clip. "And there's no way we can't win because I got me a pig. How about that?"
