After initially being a huge hit, ratings for Here Comes Honey Boo Boo are sagging and the show has become stale. After all, for all their red neck eccentricities the family is pretty normal. Kinda. But are Mama June and Sugar Bear faking their cheating scandal for a storyline?
Sources share that the Boos Boos may have sold out to pressure to save their declining reality show and that producers helped orchestrate Sugar Bear‘s cheating to give the show a more exciting direction. Especially now that daughter Alana is done with pageants, the drama has been pretty lackluster. Season 1 averaged about 3 million viewers an episode, but the most recent fourth season had a season high of 1.8 million viewers an episode.
Publicly Sugar maintains that yes, he did make a profile on a online dating site, but that he “never acted on anything.” And “absolutely would never” cheat on June. But in secret he confirms that the scandal was a set-up – and Sugar is furious that he left himself be talked into such shenanigans!
Oh no! Another reality TV marriage bites the dust. Mama June has called it quits with her (not so) devoted Sugar Bear because she believes he’s cheating!
Sources reveal that Mama June caught Sug, real name Mike Thompson, trolling online dating sites and that the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo patriarch had a profile on PlentyOfFish.com with the handle “Georgiafighter31054.” The deets make it pretty unmistakably Sugar Bear! He’s seeking a longterm relationship with a woman who is adventurous.
Be careful on the roads, people! Stop texting and driving! Slow down! Use your headlights! For goodness sake, pay some friggin' attention when you're behind the wheel! I shall step off my soapbox now and inform you that on Monday, the Shannon Thompson clan of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo fame, was involved in a terrible car wreck. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured, but it sounds like a scary ordeal!
First reported by TMZ, sources claim that Sugar Bear was driving the family's new Suburban while June, Pumpkin (Lauryn), Chubbs (Jessica), and Honey Boo Boo (Alana) were along for the ride as passengers. Apparently, Sugar Bear was trying to make a left hand turn on a green light when a truck (allegedly speeding and sans headlights) plowed into the family's vehicle.
As if her delusions of grandeur aren't troublesome enough already - Farrah Abraham has been named Google's most searched for reality TV star in 2013.
According to Google Zeitgeist, the search phrases "farrah abraham backdoor", "farrah abraham video", "farrah abraham tape", and "farrah abraham full" were wildly popular between May 5 and May 11. Gross. Considering Vivid released the Teen Mom star's porn video on May 6, I'm willing to bet the vast majority of Farrah's fans were more interested in her backdoor than her reality star status.
In the good news department, interest in Farrah (via Google anyway) has been declining since July. Also? Kim Kardashian ranked a lot lower on the list than I would have guessed. My heart sings! However, Teen Mom and Kardashian stories constantly end up at the top of Reality Tea's most viewed list, so neither Farrah nor Kim is going to fade into obscurity anytime soon. Unfortunately.
Well, this shouldn't shock you. The network that has brought us such gems as Toddlers and Tiaras, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, and Breaking Amish (and don't think I don't DVR every last one of them!!) has totally outdone itself. The channel once known as The Learning Channel wants to teach you about nudists. That's right, y'all! Get ready for Buying Naked, TLC's sure to be latest hit.
The show follows a realtor in Pasco County, Florida which she hails as the nudist capital of the world with over a dozen communities where folks can let it all hang out…literally. She's the premiere saleswoman for nekkid homes, describing her clients as not wearing any pants, yet still having deep pockets. I can't even. I mean. Yes. This is an actual thing. Thank you TLC. I have now officially seen everything…and I can't unsee the preview!
Be sure to check out a sneak peek of Buying Naked after the jump, but be forewarned…there are a lot of hairy bums (no blurring here!) and strategically placed garden hoses (true story) and margarita glasses. I wish I were making this up!

With no frighteningly competitive tantrum-throwing moms and creepy pageant coach dads living their dreams through overly caffeinated living dolls, wherever is the THE LEARNING CHANNEL (it cracks me up every time) going to get its material? Oh, that's right…the Amish (and I love it. No shame).
Where am I going with this, you ask? After six seasons, Toddlers & Tiaras is no more. Let that sink for a second.
Forklift foot, neck rust, and 'sketti aside (I do sometimes have to avert my eyes), this family loves one another. They seem to have accomplished what no other reality stars have been able to do—staying grounded!
And now, we get to see even more of crew because TLC has ordered more episodes.
