In hindsight, it seems obvious that Honey Boo Boo wasn't going to be a big fan of the "traditional" interview.

The reality television star guest-starred on The Tonight Show Wednesday, and while she seemed reticent to give into the typical question-and-answer format, she was more than happy to do a cheerleading routine with host Jimmy Fallon.

Luke Perry Thinks 'Reality TV Sucks for the Most Part'

Originally posted 05/05/2014 10:30AM

If there's one of Tori Spelling's former Beverly Hills, 90210 costars who isn't tuning into her dramatic True Tori docureality series, it's most likely Luke Perry.

"I think reality TV sucks for the most part," the veteran actor, 47, said when he sat down with PEOPLE last week.

"It's put so many writers out of business and put so many actors out of work that it's changed the face of entertainment. As a guy who has grown up making his living making primetime television – get that reality s––– out of here and give more writers and actors a chance to make shows that people will watch."

Mama June is ready to face her fear of mayonnaise – sort of.

In a clip from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo the 33-year-old decides to see a hypnotherapist about her lifelong phobia, but she doesn't seem to understand what the treatment entails.

Once inside the office she explains her problem with mayonnaise.

Kim Kardashian lives large, but she's got nothing on Mama June.

On Thursday's Halloween special for Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, the Thompson family dress up as reality TV's most famous clan, and as Mama June (posing as Kanye West's fiancée) told PEOPLE back in October, "Everyone seems to compare our family to them. Now we're just the redneck version."

But that's not where the comparisons end. Mama June sees Kim as a kindred spirit.

"Me and Kim are similar, uh, because we have kids out of wedlock," she says in the episode airing on TLC Thursday. "We both got big asses, but Kim ain't got s--- on this, baby. This is the bigger version, bigger and better."
