'Toddlers & Tiaras' diva wants big money, 'honey boo-boo'

"Toddlers & Tiaras" introduces viewers to Alana, a pint-sized diva.

Forget the usual pageant princesses. A couponing mom, a sassy money-loving tyke and one big toilet paper fight make up the must-see action on the next "Toddlers & Tiaras."

In a TLC sneak peek, viewers meet June, a mom who coupons her way to stockpiles of household products all in the name of financing her daughter's pageant participation. But little diva Alana thinks pageants might just lead to their own payday soon enough.

After a rousing paper towel and TP fight, in which the whole family threw around Mom's enormous stash of paper products, June made the introductions.

"I'm June, I'm known as the coupon queen, and my daughter Alana is known as the diva beauty queen," she said with a smile to the camera.

But if June's greeting seemed royally over-the-top, it was nothing compared to Alana's.

"I'm Alana. I'm 6, and I'm a beauty queen," the little one said with a smirk. "Those other girls must be crazy if they think they're gonna beat me, honey boo-boo child!"


Then Alana launched in to ... posing? Voguing? Whatever you want to call the kid's odd contortions. Meanwhile June showed off her hoard of laundry detergent, deodorants and "the stuff you wash dishes with."

"The reason why I coupon is because pageants are fairly expensive," she explained. "I would say, all together in pageants, we have spent about $8,000, $9,000. But that's OK. I've saved it all with my coupons."

Good thing mom's such a super saver, because it takes big bucks to satisfy her little girl.

"I want to win moneyyyy!" Alana said. "A dollar makes me holler, honey boo-boo."


See the rest of Alana's story when "Toddlers & Tiaras" airs Wednesday night at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
