'Uncle Poodle' Publicly Discloses He Has HIV

Lee Thompson—known as “Uncle Poodle” on the TLC reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo—has publicly disclosed he has HIV in an interview with LGBT Atlanta–based Fenuxe magazine. The star of the show, 7-year-old Alana Thompson (a.k.a. Honey Boo Boo), had already disclosed to viewers last September that her uncle was gay after a visit by him prompted her to declare, “Ain’t nothin’ wrong with bein’ a little gay.” Lee Thompson tells Fenuxe that he tested negative in March 2012 and then positive two months later. He says that he pressed charges against his ex-boyfriend for nondisclosure and claims that his ex is serving a five-year sentence as a result.
