Comedienne/talk-show host/actress Rosie O'Donnell knows a thing or two about show business, which is why her high praise of reality star Alana 'Honey Boo Boo' Thompson shouldn't be taken lightly.
In an interview with People, Rosie compares the 7-year-old Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star to Shirley Temple, saying, "she has a presence and an intellect that goes way beyond her years. Some of the stuff she says and she comes up with ... I don't know."
In fact, Rosie is a fan of the entire family.
"I love Mama June. I love Sugar Bear. I love Chubbs," said Rosie, doing spot-on impressions of each. "I'd love to meet them and buy them a house."
This comes after internet reports circulated last week, alleging that TLC offered the family a new home as a part of their contract negotiations.
