June shared on Facebook that despite negative reports, she’s not having any problems with Jessica! Instead, after the former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo family relocated to Hampton, GA to cosplay The Beverly Hillbillies in a big new house, Jessica decided to remain in McIntyre to focus on graduating high school.
“The reason Jessica stayed in McIntyre is cause she only has two and half mths to graduate,” June insisted. “It was a hard decision but she wanted to graduate with her friends she had been with for 10 yrs but she comes home and we talk and I’m up on all her progress still.” June added that Jessica plans to start college in the fall. June also didn’t elaborate on where Jessica was living!
Okay, okay. When I’m wrong, I say I’m wrong (pours out some wine for the amazing Jerry Orbach), and I was wrong about the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo family. Once upon a time, I was the reality phenomenon’s biggest defender. Heck, I even made ‘sketti with butter and ketchup in a Country Crock container for a HCHBB viewing party! False. That was a giant lie. Not even I am that gross.
However, I did love this family’s dynamic. Mama June seemed extremely grounded in light of her crew’s sky rocketing fame (remember those trust funds?). Sugar Bear was (and honestly still is, or at least seems to be) a guy who just wants to do right by his common law (that marriage ceremony was bogus, right?) wife, their daughter, and his step-children. Alana Thompson, aka Honey Boo Boo herself, was everything you could have hoped for in a cheese-ball chomping, pageant preening, fart loving seven-year-old. Of course, when the news broke that June had left Sugar Bear and reconciled with the pedophile who had victimized her oldest daughter, I had to stomp on my rose colored glasses and throw them in the dump that family once foraged for our entertainment. Le sigh.
Since TLC wants nothing to do with the Boo Boos, who no longer fit their funky family-friendly image, the Boo Boos are taking their redneck lovin’ lifestyle to more interested parties – they hope! Reports are circulating that Mama June and the crew – including Sugar Bear – are in LA meeting with producers this week to shop around a new “Beverly Hillbillies Themed” reality show to various networks!
RIP TRAIN! It’s with a heavy heart I write that the one constant that was once part of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is whistling a farewell to the once revered (at least by me) reality family of McIntyre, Georgia. While she may not make the best decisions (I realize that is the understatement of the year), matriarch June Shannon is still being fiscally responsible with her family’s television earnings…even if that’s the only way she’s being responsible!
The family is still facing backlash from the controversy surrounding her ex-boyfriendMark Daniel. Mark is a convicted child molester who linked back up with June upon his release from prison. Sadly, her oldest daughter was one of his victims. Her lapse in judgment (to put it VERY mildly) caused TLC to cancel the family’s hit show.
Now that Mama June has lost her job when Here Comes Honey Boo Boo got cancelled over her affair with a registered sex offender (and all the insanity that followed!), and she’s also having her paycheck seriously docked for ruining the almost fully-filmed fourth season as a result of her salacious behavior, someone at Vivid believes she’s hard up enough to accept a major payday for a sex tape. Please, no. Just please. NO.
According to sources Vivid approached June and Sugar Bear with the possibility of filming a specialty sex tape, but also performing for the network’s website!
If you’ve been following the deplorable news of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo then you know Mama June is now back in a relationship with the man who molested her eldest daughter Anna Cardwell. If that’s not disgusting enough, Anna now reveals that June has stolen money her children earned on reality TV to buy him a car and other things!
Mark McDaniel spent ten years in prison for child molestation charges, got out, and immediately rekindled things with June, causing her to break-up with Sugar Bear, put all of her daughters, but most specifically Honey Boo Boo herself, Alana, at risk. Anna believes her sisters are in danger “if Mark’s back in the picture.” Anna, now 20, feels betrayed by June’s decisions and claims that June still doesn’t believe Mark molested her.
Anna initially did not believe reports that her mother had gotten back together with Mark, but has since confirmed their relationship. Anna feels June’s relationship with Mark is “ruining” her mother’s life, leading her to not only endanger her children and their relationships to their mother, but also steal from them!
TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo when the scandal broke that Mama June got back together with Mark McDaniel, the man who molested her daughter Anna Cardwell. The network had nearly completed filming for the fourth season when they decided to pull the plug and not air the footage – and they blame Mama June entirely! As a result Mama June will lose most of her salary for the unaired season – but her three daughters will be paid-in-full!
TLC has made the decision to put paycheck money in trust for Pumpkin, Chubs, and Alana Thompson, while seriously reducing June’s earnings under the stipulation that she violated the networks “morality” clause when she entered into a relationship with a child molester. The network is confident they have the legal grounds to do this, says TMZ.
Sugar Bear and Uncle Poodle, Alana’s uncle, will also receive their full salaries because they are not responsible for any behaviors that would have put the show at risk of cancellation.
