These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous "insiders." After a while, it's easy to forget that stars are real people. That's why HuffPost Celebrity decided to launch its all-new #nofilter quick-fire question and answer series. Because how well do you know someone until they've shared their guiltiest pleasures?

"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" has become a huge hit for TLC, thanks to the over-the-top antics of its 7-year-old star, Alana Thompson. But Alana's mother, June Shannon, has proved to be a scene-stealer in her own right. Whether she's sharing her recipe for sketti, or coining colorful catchphrases, Mama June tells it like it is. We caught up with the family matriarch to discuss white lies, favorite flicks and what makes her lose her cool.

What's your guiltiest pleasure?

It'd have to be watching reality shows. Not just ours. We love »
