Honey Boo Boo, aka Alana Thompson, of TLC's reality show spin-off "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," came to Conyers with her family and a TLC film crew on Thursday for a little holiday fun. Thompson took a spin on the ice at the ice skating rink at the Olde Town Pavilion as onlookers and fans watched from the sides. Gina Hartsell, Conyers-Rockdale's Camera Ready Liaison, said TLC producers called that day looking for places to stop by for holiday activities. The episode with the ice skating scenes might air sometime in January or February, she said.
Andrea Melton heard about the appearance on Facebook and drove out from Jackson to catch a glimpse and meet up with Lindsay Coker of Covington. "I watch her show all the time," said Coker.
Kim Miller of Henry County watched with amusement as her daughters Kristen and Gracie and their friends signed waivers after they were caught on camera interacting with Thompson. Other parents were not so amused at the hubbub and said they would return when it was not so crowded.
