Alana Thompson, better known as Honey Boo Boo from TLC's Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, had mixed feelings when her show was unceremoniously dropped from the network.

TLC canceled the show when reports surfaced alleging that Alana's mom and co-star, June Shannon, was dating a registered sex offender. Alan recalls the moment the camera crews left with a mixture of positive and negative feelings.

"I was kind of happy about that," Alana tells Oprah: Where Are They Now?, "and at the same time, I was sad, so I was sa-happy?"

Here, the reality TV star opens up about the sudden end of her fame.
