Rosie O'Donnell says she has become a fan of the reality TV family on "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."
"I love Mama June. I love Sugar Bear. I love Chubbs. I love 'em all," the 50-year-old comedian told People of the "Toddlers & Tiaras" spinoff.
O'Donnell, who is recovering from a serious heart attack, said she was impressed she was by the show's 7-year-old star, Alana Thompson. She even went so far as to compare her youthful moxie to Shirley Temple. "She has a presence and an intellect that goes way beyond her years," O'Donnell said.
Rose also extended an offer to the family who lives in a home interrupted by railroad tracks running through the backyard in McIntyre, Ga.
"I'd love to meet them," she said, "and buy them a house."
