MAMA June’s oldest daughter, Anna Cardwell, is sticking up for her sister Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson, after fans claimed the reality star acts “too grown up” with fake nails & lashes.
Anna, 26, exclusively told The Sun that her 15-year-old sister is just being a normal teenager.

The Honey Boo Boo star who is also known as Chickadee, defended her little sister, saying: “Alana is a teenager who is growing up and is basically trying to find herself. She is going through what every teenager goes through.”
Fans have criticized Alana for wearing fake long nails and thick false eyelashes, but Anna says she’s more mature than most teens her age.
“She is grown up. She is more grown-up than most 15-year-olds. The nail stuff that doesn’t bother me, what do you expect for 15?”
Anna continued: “You don’t expect anything different from teens. They all want the same thing; they want to be grown up.”
She added she isn’t personally into the long nail trend, and has questioned her little sister about the functionality of such a manicure.
“With the nail thing, I’ve asked her how do you wipe your ass with that?,” Anna laughed, adding “Alana said ‘Its easy, you just wrap the toilet paper around them and wipe!’”

Last month Honey Boo Boo took to Instagram to share a selfie in which she wore no makeup, which came as a surprise to fans who have gotten used to the star looking much more made up.
Alana’s followers have recently seen the reality star post snaps of herself in heavy makeup, long nails and fake eyelashes.
In the make-under Instagram post the teen stuck out her tongue, while she pulled her blonde hair back in a side ponytail.
Alana captioned the post: “i don’t care, i live MY WAY.”
Many fans seemed to love Alana’s more natural look, as her Instagram followers raved over her appearance in the comments section.
While one fan called the teen “gorgeous,” another wrote: “Pretty girl.”
The TV personality has faced backlash from the public regarding her appearance and her family.

In March, the teen appeared on social and announced to fans that Mama June would be returning to TV screens in a new season for Road To Redemption.
Honey opted for a more understated look after she was slammed by fans for wearing fluttering falsies and a full face of makeup.
The former child pageant star kept it simple with mascara, a smoky eye, and slightly brown-tinted brows.
She told her 869k followers of the new season: “You should watch for sure, because you are about to see some crazy things.”
The series follows Mama June, 41, as she tries to get her life on track following a stint in rehab due to cocaine use.
