Beauty pageants may have landed Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson her own reality show, but the former Toddlers & Tiaras star is officially ending her reign.

“We’re done,” her mother, “Mama” June Shannon, 33, exclusively tells the new issue of In Touch, on stands now. “We haven’t done a pageant for a while, because we’re so busy with our show [TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo] and school and life in general.”

The spotlight-loving little diva certainly “misses the stage,” June admits, but says Alana, 7, finds ways to stay connected to the beauty world. “We still have all our pageant friends. We go along and cheer on our other pageant friends.”

This “Mama” knows best and has a feeling the sky is the limit for her youngest: “Alana’s trying different things, but I don’t think she’s found that new niche yet that she wants to get into.”
