Barbara Walters will reveal her “Most Fascinating Person of 2012″ on Dec. 12, but to hold you over until then, she’s added one more person to the seven already revealed – Honey Boo Boo.

Walters told US Weekly that she thinks Honey Boo Boo, whose real name is Alana Thompson, has unnecessarily gotten a bad rap.  ”The relationship between Alana and her mother — that’s the story, the two of them. It’s very touching,” Walters told the magazine.

The Huffington Post was tipped off on November that the star of TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” was a shoo-in for the list. “Barbara is a genius and knows controversy sell,” an ABC insider told HuffPost.

    I’m impressed, I need to say. Really hardly ever do I encounter a weblog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you may have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the difficulty is one thing that not sufficient persons are talking intelligently about. I’m very completely happy that I stumbled across this in my seek for one thing referring to this.
