If you think it’s a joke that the tiny pageant divas of Toddlers & Tiaras are “juicing,” think again.
Watch as Toddlers & Tiaras’ “Honey Boo Boo Child” Alana makes an appearance on Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers, where they talk about her magical “go go juice.”
For the uninitiated, Alana’s mom keeps her kid on a steady stream of “go go juice,” a twist on some of the pageant crack the other moms serve up in the form of pixie sticks and sugar cubes.
Alana’s “go go juice” makes her beyond hyper, keeping her lively and engaged so that she can perform her pageant talents.
More accurately, it makes her zing off the walls, spin on the floor and spout little gems like “A dollar makes me holler, honey boo boo child.”
Cute kid, but c’mon pageant moms… you can’t tell me there isn’t a better way to keep your kids attentive than by pumping them full of sugar and caffeine?
Dr. Drew had little Alana and her mom on his show, where he asked about the go go juice and even gave it a try himself.
It’s a blend of soda (Mountain Dew?) and a caffeine drink like Red Bull.
Dr. Drew tries a bit of the magical mix and then notes, “I’m kind of starting to sweat a little bit. I can’t speak, my tongue’s getting thick… I can’t talk because I’ve got this go go juice making my mouth thick… I’m having trouble, I’m starting to lose it.”
Bad acting aside… sounds like a real kid friendly drink, right?
In an article posted (but now removed) on Extra, Dr. Drew noted, “To give a child anything that can alter their mood is egregious, and their behavior is unconscionable.”
The Dr. Drew Lifechangers episode with Toddlers & Tiaras Alana airs on February 2 on the CW.
