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.
Summer is upon us and what that really means is lots of reality TV! I mean it's hot, what else are you gonna do?! Below is your guide to the June and July 2013 premiere dates for all your new and returning shows.
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.
How did you celebrate Cinco de Mayo yesterday? Did you enjoy some delicious food and perhaps a margarita or three? I'll tell you what I didn't do. I didn't get invited to McIntyre, Georgia to see Mama June Shannon walk down the aisle to an awaiting Sugar Bear, and that makes me terribly sad…but happy for them. #conflicted
While there is no official word as to whether Alana Thompson's parents actually got married or if it was just a commitment ceremony, the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo family celebrated in a big way…complete with camouflage, barbeque, and hopefully lots of 'sketti. Not surprisingly, TLC cameras were on hand to capture the exciting event.
Oh my, oh Si! I seriously cannot get enough of the Robertson family, and I am so excited to share more of this fabulous group with the wonderful RT readers. The fan favorite seems to be Uncle Si, although I have a soft spot in my heart for Jase. Poor Willie seems to be the brunt of the family's good-hearted ribbing, with Phil doling out the most deadpanned advice. Honestly, I wish other reality families would take note (cough, cough Kardashians!).
Today, we get to delve a little behind the scenes of the Robertsons, and the executive producer of the Duck Dynasty shares just why this show works so well. Enough chatter from me…let's get to it, shall we?
