The Thompson Family is returning to television

Look out, world because Mama June is coming back! Or if you’re anything like me, you’re probably thinking, “For the love of God, why?” Ha! For many fans, however, the question of whether or not the popular Thompson family would be returning to television has been on their minds for quite some time. Okay, well at least ever since the show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was canned after June’s alleged sexual affair with a child molester came to light.

Well, guess what? Mama June and the clan of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo are heading back to a television screen near you – how lucky can we get? This is, according to Mama June herself, who shared the news on social media recently. You’ll have to hop inside for all the fun details.

Unfortunately, I can’t go back to an easier time when memories of “go-go juice” and “sketti” served in the finest of Cool-Whip containers meant that life was simple, back when one’s only concerns were exposing forklift foot if a water park’s rip-roarin’ slide proved too much for a pedicured ankle sock or whether a scheduling conflict with the local railroad would create a loud, late night train situation. Nope, I can’t hop in my Kuntry Store purchased time machine and unlearn all I now know about the folks of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Thanks June Shannon.

When TLC’s cash cow was at the height of popularity, the line was clearly drawn before those who (like me) found the family’s ridiculous antics equally endearing and disgusting and those who thought the show’s fans were verging on insanity. Sure, the six-year-old beauty queen wannabe Alana Thompson was sassy to the point of rude, but her one-liners were everything. The family was open about their past struggles (June, a grandmother in her mid-thirties has four daughters from various incarcerated men), but who am I to judge? Plus, what’s not to love about Sugar Bear?

Duggar Family TLC

TLC announced this afternoon that it’s pulling all episodes of 19 Kids and Counting in the wake of the Josh Duggar molestation scandal.  Mama June is probably a little sad she has to put that lawsuit on hold…possibly. 

TLC isn’t exactly saying that they’re canceling the show, just that they’re pulling the episodes off the air. “Effective immediately, TLC has pulled all episodes of 19 Kids And Counting currently from the air. We are deeply saddened and troubled by this heartbreaking situation, and our thoughts and prayers are with the family and victims at this difficult time.”  They didn’t give any further info about the status of the show.

Former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star June Shannon (aka Mama June) is hopping mad at TLC this morning and she’s about to lawyer up.  June is furious that the network hasn’t pulled the plug on 19 Kids and Counting now that Josh Duggar has admitted to molesting several young girls when he was a teenager, a few even allegedly his own sisters. 

If you’ll recall, TLC canceled the Boo Boo clan almost immediately after rumors started swirling that June was dating her former flame Mark McDaniel, who had molested her oldest daughter, Anna “Chickadee” Caldwell, when she was just eight years old. The camera crew packed up and headed out of dodge in a hurry, but the same isn’t happening for the Duggar family and June is furious.  TLC had even threatened to sue June if she shopped around a spin-off show!
