If you learn anything important from TLC (and why wouldn't you? It's The Learning Channel for goodness' sake!), it should be that you don't mess with June Shannon. The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch may be a fierce mama bear when it comes to protecting her colorful brood. That said, she's just as quick to call them out for bad behavior!
Those of you who admit to watching the show (and those of you who watch it in secret and silently giggle while reading Sugar Bear's one-liners) know that middle daughter Pumpkin (not to be confused with the slightly older Chubbs) often uses negative behavior to gain recognition among her loud and crazy family members. She has complained in the past that she isn't thrilled with the attention she's garnered in her life outside of the hit reality show. While Pumpkin has complained of being the victim of bullies, it seems that she's taken on the role of mean girl.
They're baaa–ack! And no one is more happy about it than this girl. Y'all know I think the Thompson-Shannons of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo put the "real" back in reality television. Sure, they are unhealthy, and they may not set the best example in every aspect of their lives, they are certainly much smarter than they get credit for from most viewers.
June Shannon wants to make sure her daughters never feel entitled. She's often said that this crazy ride can end just as quickly as it started, so she isn't going to change how they once lived. Now in the second season of the family's hit TLC show, she seems hell bent on continuing that trend, as evidenced on last week's first episode.
Mama June the matriarch of the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo fam has just announced that there will be no more pageants. But what reason do I have to watch the show if not for June belting out "Shake It, Smoochie!" in the audience?!
Apparently Honey Boo Boo is so busy pursuing a career in reality TV that the reason she became famous – pageantry – is just too time consuming! Bummer.
I hate the reminders that our favorite reality stars are human just like us. We get so invested in their lives, that it is always sad when bad news strikes. Of course, for the family of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, it's the hardships that seem to make them stronger.
With the new season of HCHBB right around the corner, TLC has a brand new way for fans to be part of the action. As the girls fart and burp their way through a day filled with June's forklift foot and infamous 'sketti, now you can be a part of the aroma-filled action. Still reading without gagging? Just wait…
It's been a hard holiday weekend for the Shannon/Thompson family, and things don't seem to be looking up for the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo clan. Here's hoping they get some good news soon.
As we posted on Saturday, Sugar Bear is in the hospital, and tests are being run. Unfortunately, June Shannondoesn't have much more to report on his condition. Also, their sweet pooch China, who often appeared on the show (he was particularly visible in most of the train shots) passed away over the weekend as well. The whole family, especially Alana Thompson, is having a difficult time dealing with the loss.
June Shannon shared on Facebook about Sugar Bear's latest medical scare, "just wanted everyone [to] know sugarbear was taken to the hospital earlier tonight after getting dizzy and passing out, their [they're] running test on him to see what's going on. So far everything is coming back ok so no answers yet, will update when we know something! Thanks for the prayers & concerns as always! ♥"
Sugar Bear wound up having emergency surgery last fall after a wound on his leg became infected, but it sounds like this most recent scare was nothing serious.
Deadline reports were about to see a whole lot more of them come July 17th! The wedding will of course be included in this season's story. I'm sure we'll also get to watch Mama June coupon clip her way through wedding planning. I wonder if she made the dress herself out of hunting tarps? Honey Boo Boo herself, aka Smoochie, aka Alana will also be back to spread the sassy to the pageant world.
