TLC has decided to officially pull the plug on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo amid rumors that Mama June‘s new man is a convicted child molester Mark McDaniel! Icky times a million.
June has denied any sort of relationship with Mark, despite photographic evidence alluding otherwise. First in a statement on Facebook where she admitted to once being involved with him. “It isnt true i promise,” she writes. “My kids r #1 priority over anything else and I would never put them in danger period over this or anything else they r my life this is my past I left him 10 yrs ago for it and I wouldn’t go back.”
“You can’t believe everything you read! Ppl sell stories to the tabloid everyday that r false!” June reminded fans.
“Sugar Bear and I have decided to take some time apart to figure out some things in our relationship,” they said in a statement. “We are taking things day by day but regardless of what happens the girls will always be our #1 priority. We want to thank ya’ll for your support.”
Well, that support may soon be over, because recent reports claim that Mama June has moved on and it is with a man from her past.
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.
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.
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.
