The one-time Queen of Nice has a rather nice gesture for the stars of TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo — she wants to buy them a house.

In a video interview with People, Rosie O’Donnell said that she loves the show, and that she’s especially obsessed with its 7-year-old star, Alanna Thompson. O’Donnell redneckognizes in her a child star from another era, Shirley Temple. “She has a presence and an intellect that goes way beyond her years … I’d love to meet them,” O’Donnell said.

She then says that she wants to buy the whole gang a house, which may not be such a bad idea — the brood is expanding. On a recent episode, “Chickadee” gave birth to a baby girl.

O’Donnell might not have to worry about buying a house for Honey Boo Boo : The controversial (to say the least) show has attracted an average of 2.3 million viewers so far and was just picked up for more episodes.

Only six more seasons to go until they keep up with overtake the Kardashians.
