Mama June, 35, did a series of sit-ups, push-ups and weight lifting as she was in Los Angeles to pitch new reality shows to network executives, TMZ reported.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was cancelled in October 2014 after four seasons on TLC.

TLC decided to end the show after reports indicated that June Shannon was dating a man accused of child molestation.

Sugar Bear, also known as Mike Thompson, will be traveling the 90 minutes from his home in McIntyre to visit his daughter, TMZ reported.

June Shannon revealed she is having strict new cleaning rules – no shoes inside and all the girls will have chores to keep the home in tip-top condition.

Sugar Bear, 43, lives in a trailer with his brother.

TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo on October 24 after only four seasons following reports that June Shannon had been involved with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel.

Nine-year-old Honey Boo Boo is obese, The Doctors specialists said during a recent appearance of the little reality star in the show.

During the show, the two doctors confronted Mama June about Alana Thompson’s terrible eating habits.

Alana Thompson started her young career in beauty pageants on Toddlers and Tiaras.

Then she moved on to Here Comes Honey Boo Boo fame, where we all learned that she loves not-so-great-for-you treats such as fried Oreos.


“My favorite food? Chicken nuggets, I would have to say,” Honey Boo Boo told Travis Stork, host of The Doctors who stages an “intervention” on the show.

“I like corn dogs.”

But the focus of the show is to give her mother, June Shannon, a wake-up call, a reality check and to try to turn around Honey Boo Boo’s lifestyle.

“I do worry about her health,” said Mama June.

The doctors – Travis Stork and Jennifer Ashton – reveal that Honey Boo Boo’s height and weight (4-foot-6 and 125 pounds) is not good, especially for a 9-year-old.

“She is obese,” said Jennifer Ashton.

Mama June says that a lot of the weight is due to steroids Honey Boo Boo takes for her asthma.

“You’re trying to make a lot of excuses,” said Travis Stork, but he added that her diet of fried, salty and sugary foods is contributing to her health problems, including asthma, which is inflammation of the airways.

After checking out their home fridge, Travis Stork said: “June, I”m sorry, but I didn’t see anything in that fridge that’s either going to improve Alana’s weight or decrease inflammation in her body. And, I’m going to be honest, you need to take some responsibility here. … I want to see a bit of a light bulb, where you say, <<Maybe I can do better, maybe even a heck of a lot better>>.”

June Shannon didn’t like hearing her grocery shopping choices were the culprits and instead blamed Honey Boo Boo’s weight on asthma medication. But the doctor knows best, and he followed up with: “It’s not her steroids that are causing her to be obese. It’s the foods she’s eating.”

The two take a taste test of healthier foods and realize that maybe they can learn to love pizza made with cauliflower crust and oven-fried chicken made with rolled oats.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch June Shannon makes a brief appearance in the recently released Dumb and Dumber To.

Mama June plays the trailer park wife of Jeff Daniels’ character Harry in a short dream sequence.

The role was kept secret until the film’s release last week. 

June Shannon’s scene shows the character Lloyd – played by Jim Carrey – going to pick up Harry’s young daughter for a date, only to grope the breast of Mama June instead.

Allegations that Mama June is dating convicted child molester Mark McDaniel led TLC to cancel her reality program last month, but it hasn’t altered her film debut in Dumb And Dumber To.

TLC dropped Here Comes Honey Boo Boo after images emerged apparently showing June Shannon with Mark McDaniel.

June Shannon’s child molester boyfriend, Mark McDaniel, has been unfriended by Facebook.

Mark McDaniel, who spent 10 years behind bars for child assault, has been kicked off by Facebook per its policy toward s** offenders.

His account was active until November 18 when his profile was removed by Facebook, multiple media outlets confirmed. Prior to being booted off Facebook, Mark McDaniel had posts from friends welcoming him back home after being prison. His profile photo was of him holding his baby granddaughter.

Mark McDaniel recently completed his prison sentence, which reportedly stemmed from a child assault. Mama June’s daughter Anna Cardwell has made allegations that Mark McDaniel molested her.

For her part, Honey Boo Boo’s mother has said that her relationship with Mark McDaniel is blown out of proportion, but she understands why people are upset that they are seen together.

June Shannon has finally revealed who is the real father of her daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin”.

For the first time since allegedly resuming her relationship with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel, Mama June is sitting down for an exclusive interview with ET‘s Brooke Anderson to defend her actions and answer the questions everyone has been asking.

Honey Boo Boo’s mother said:“I have nothing to hide, I have nothing to lose.

“I just want, honestly, to tell my side of the story and let’s move on.”

June Shannon, 35, came under fire last month after reports surfaced that she had rekindled a romantic relationship with Mark McDaniel, who was recently released from jail after serving 10 years for aggravated child molestation.

However, according to Mama June, she has only seen Mark McDaniel twice since his release from prison, once at a coincidental meeting and the second time at an arranged meeting to give closure to her daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, 14, who was raised believing Mark McDaniel was her biological father.

“Since two months to almost six years, she knew nobody but him,” June Shannon explained.

“She was starting to resent Anna and she was starting to ask me questions. I can’t answer those questions for Pumpkin.”

June Shannon says that she arranged a second meeting with Mark McDaniel so that Pumpkin could ask him questions in an attempt to get closure and move on.

“I was sitting right there with twelve other people,” she told ET.

“It was a conversation that she wanted her answers: what happened, why did he leave, you know, if he was her real father. He admitted to her, no. I had already told her that but, you know, she wanted to hear from both sides of the story.”

Mama June revealed for the first time her claim that Pumpkin’s biological father is also the father of her 18-year-old daughter Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon. His name is Michael Anthony Ford, he is a convicted s** offender who served time for exploitation of minors after being caught on To Catch a Predator in 2005.

“Jessica and Pumpkin have the same dad, but Jessica’s dad has had nothing to do with her over the years,” June Shannon said.

“So, why the hell would I open up that can of worms until today? I lied to my family and told them it was somebody else.”

As for whether June Shannon understands why people were so upset over her being seen with Mark McDaniel, she says: “I understand that…and honestly it’s not like I’m seeing him every day, I promise…I wanted to be able to give one of my other daughters closure and now Pumpkin is happy, that piece of our life is over.”

Honey Boo Boo’s eldest sister Anna “Chickadee” Shannon Cardwell has revealed their sister Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon believes Mama June’s child molester boyfriend Mark McDaniel is her father.

Anna Cardwell, who accused Mark McDaniel of repeatedly assaulting her when she was 8, told Dr Drew on HLN that Pumpkin believes the convicted molester is her dad.

She said that is why Pumpkin has defended June Shannon since reports emerged that she was dating Mark McDaniel again after his release from prison in March.

“You know, out of all the kids we have, Mama does not know who Pumpkin’s dad is. And Pumpkin thinks it’s Mark which kind of hurts my feelings, because Mama is making her believe that someone who did that to me is her father.

“Now Pumpkin hates me for it… I don’t really care. Me and Pumpkin have never been that close… Now with her cussing me out, [saying ] <<screw you>>, <<F you>>… I’m just done with it.”

June Shannon denied reports she was dating child molester Mark McDaniel or even seeing him since he went to prison back in 2004.

However, it appears that Mama June’s daughter, Anna Shannon, who was the victim of her ex-boyfriend child molester, decided to leave Here Comes Honey Boo Boo show on the same month Mark McDaniel was released from jail.

Was Anna Shannon’s decision to leave the show linked to a rekindled romance between her mother and the child molester?

June Shannon, 34, said that news of her rekindled romance with Mark McDaniel – who was indicted in June 2003 for molesting her daughter Anna “Chickadee” Shannon when she was 8-year-old – isn’t true.

However, sources claim that Mark McDaniel and June Shannon dated before he went to prison for assault in 2004, and they reconciled shortly after he was released in March.

Now, Honey Boo Boo’s older sister believes that her mother betrayed her by dating Mark McDaniel again behind the family’s back.

“I believe she is seeing him and hanging around him,” Anna Shannon told RadarOnline.

“I’m hurt,” she added.

Mark McDaniel, now 53, was sentenced to ten years in prison for his crime. He was released from Dodge State Prison on March 1, 2014.

On March 28, according to a statement posted on Mama June’s Facebook page, the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch announced that Anna Shannon was leaving the reality show: Anna is leaving the show, I am so sad but its her decision she wants nothing to do with the family.”

June Shannon split from longtime love and Honey Boo Boo’s father, 42-year-old Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson, in September.
Meanwhile, TLC decided to cancel Here Comes Honey Boo Boo amid Season 5 production.

We are taking things day by day, but regardless of what happens, the girls will always be our number one priority. We want to thank y’all for your support.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Season 3 finale revealed that Mama June is two weeks late and she might be expecting.

June Shannon is experiencing all the classic symptoms: mood swings, exhaustion, and out-of-control appetite.

Honey Boo Boo’s mom figures it’s either a baby or menopause, but she is only 33.

As far as Mama June is concerned, a new baby is the last thing she wants. The four she has are plenty. So she keeps her fears to herself and goes about planning Honey Boo Boo and Anna’s joint birthday party as they were born on the same day 11 years apart.

They agree to celebrate at a local carnival, but Anna didn’t show up. A mean move that really devastated her mom, but it was clear what the teen was up to. Anna is still intent on moving out and Mama June is giving her a hard time about it. She was probably trying to assert her independence. Mama June can’t help but lament about what it will be like without Anna and Kaitlyn in the house.

Finally, Mama June takes a pregnancy test and gets the answer she was hoping for. It’s negative.

Last week’s episode of  Here Comes Honey Boo Boo left fans in big suspense as Mama June is late and thinks that she would be pregnant.

Huffington Post also talked about the fact that Honey Boo Boo’s mom could be having a baby.

June Shannon does a lot of posting on their official Facebook page but she isn’t saying anything.

The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch shared a video of herself recently but it is just of her face.

Pictures have shown Mama June and she has actually lost weight. The entire family was in a car wreck and there was no mention of a baby or of a pregnancy. It would be pretty shocking if she is pregnant and they were able to keep it a secret from the fans for this long. There is no news out there for sure if she is pregnant or not so hopefully they will reveal it next week.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Season 3 big finale airs on Thursday, March 6, at 8 p.m. on TLC.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’s latest episode ended in suspense: Is Mama June pregnant or not?

This week’s episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo started with Alana Thompson walking into the bathroom and quickly emerging, flushed with horror, over someone who didn’t.

Declaring the situation “a poop mystery that we have to figure out,” Honey Boo Boo encountered a round of denials from the family, including Jessica “Chubbs”, who asks: “What are you, Sherlock Poop?”

After Honey Boo Boo failed to get to the bottom of the situation, the action shifted to Mama June and Sugar Bear, who once again asked for alone time, “which is baby-making time,” a notion June Shannon flat-out rejected as she wants no more kids.

However, June Shannon agreed to go on a double date with her sister, Doe-Doe, and her new paramour, Jose.

The action is back to Honey Boo Boo slinking around the house with a magnifying glass, tracking her family with a vow to get to the bottom of this “mess-tery”.

The two couples went on a double date to a Japanese restaurant.

Back at home, June Shannon mused about how important it is to create lasting family memories, then emerges from the bathroom and looks at the calendar in a panic, realizing her time of the month is late.

People commenting on the show’s Facebook page are now wondering if June Shannon is pregnant.

„i dont think she is pregnant they just want to keep the suspence up in the show and get viewers most likely!” said one of the show’s fans.

However, the episode was filmed last summer… so, most probably, June Shannon is not pregnat.

In the latest episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Alana Thompson’s family must make a scary medical decision about their youngest member, baby Kaitlyn.

As we already know, Anna’s daughter, Kaitlyn, was born with two thumbs on one of her hands.

Now that Kaitlyn is one year old, it’s time to consider removing it.

As Honey Boo Boo explains, she isn’t the only family member with an interesting body part. Mama June has forklift foot, Sugar Bear has his inside parts reversed (his heart is on the wrong side), Anna’s got a weird skinny gene, Jessica’s got shark teeth, and Uncle Poodle’s got nine toes.

They’ve got two options: leave the thumb there and she grows up with it or remove it. Problem is, Anna wants her baby to have the surgery and Mama June is against it.

June Shannon is afraid that the surgery could go wrong and it could paralyze Kaitlyn’s remaining thumb. She also is fearful of putting such a little baby under anesthesia. But Anna is worried about it being the butt of jokes or the reason Kaitlyn is teased as she grows older.

That doesn’t mean she’s not worried about the procedure. Anna cries knowing that her daughter has to go through surgery and the possibility something might go wrong. The issue becomes a real source of tension between Mama June and her eldest daughter. But Anna doesn’t back down asserting that the decision is ultimately up to her.

After a visit with the doctor, Anna decides to wait a year.

Honey Boo Boo’s mother June Shannon revealed her daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” was back in hospital this week with further complications stemming from the family’s car accident in January.

Mama June shared the news on Facebook early this morning explaining that the family was driving back home after dinner when Pumpkin, 14, got headaches, then felt nauseous and passed out several times.

She wrote: “Well we r back at the hospital with pumpkin with complication s from the car wreck that was 6 wks…we have a time with good days and a lot of bad days lately and tonight was very scary for me as a mom as we was driving down the highway after dinner pumpkin was in the back having a bad headache like she has had for the past 6 wk then the shooting pains starting got nausea but that’s been normally happening over the 6 wks then all the sudden she was like I’m about to pass out then a few mins later she

Honey Boo Boo is reportedly suffering from post-traumatic stress brought on by the recent car accident.

Alana Thompson, aka Honey Boo Boo, 8, and her family are still recovering from the incident.

Father Mike Thompson (aka Sugar Bear), Honey Boo Boo, Lauryn Shannon, Jessica Shannon, and mother June Shannon were involved in a small wreck in early January when the family vehicle was struck by a truck.

While there were no serious injuries reported, physical after effects resulted in Lauryn’s brief hospitalization.

Meanwhile, Honey Boo Boo’s road to recovery has been rocky as well.

“She has what [doctors] call post-concussion symptoms, which is like the headaches, the body aches, being dazed and confused,” Mama June explained to BANG Showbiz.

“Then she also has post-traumatic stress syndrome from being in a traumatic event. So we are just taking it one day at a time.”

While fans take in new episodes from the third season of Here Come Honey Boo Boo on TLC, the family’s recent off-screen drama has Mama June worrying that her youngest may not return to her old self.

“We are just trying to get her back to the most normal routine we can, which is going to help her healing process,” June Shannon continued.

“What is frustrating is that we don’t know what the outcome will be, or when she is going to be back to normal.”

It remains unclear how much of this story will find its way onto viewers’ television screens.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on TLC.

On tonight’s episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Mama June lets Jessica and Anna go on a double date with the whole family there to chaperone.

Honey Boo Boo’s family ventured to an arcade where Alana and Pumpkin (Lauryn) were sent to watch the two couples during a game of laser tag.

“I mean, my biggest concern for the girls, honestly is one of ‘em coming up pregnant,” June Shannon says.

“Because Anna already has a baby. I don’t wanna be a grandmother again.”

Honey Boo Boo and her family visited Savannah and Tybee Island in the latest episode of reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

The episode, filmed in June and titled Hubba Bubba follows the Georgia family on an RV roadtrip to Tybee Island where 8-year-old Alana Thompson, sister Lauryn “Pumpkin” and niece Katilyn see the beach for the first time.

June Shannon takes her first dip in the ocean, and the girls take their first surf lesson before ending the day with some Southern cooking at Sisters of the New South on Skidaway Road.

Kenneth Brown, operations manager at Sisters of the New South, said they knew of the family’s visit about a month in advance but had to keep quiet so it would be a surprise for the customers.

“It was a normal day for us, and all of the customers were really surprised to see them,” Kenneth Brown said.

“They were all very friendly. I think TV portrays them a certain way … as <<backwoodsy>>, but they were very down to earth, just like anyone else you would meet.”

Dorothy Bing, front line supervisor at the restaurant, waited on the family and agreed with Brown, saying what you see on television is what you get with the family.

“They’re just regular, ordinary people. They acted the same way they do on TV, acting a fool and all,” said Dorothy Bing.

She said the family enjoyed red and white velvet cake and that Mama June tried ox tails for the first time.

“I was surprised at how quiet the little girl was. She did talk, but she was a lot quieter than I thought she would be,” Dorothy Bing said.

After the family’s day of fun in the sun June Shannon gave Honey Boo Boo’s one million Facebook followers a peek into their day: “Omg had a blast on tybee today a first time ever at a beach for pumpkin katilyn and alana and my first time going in the ocean we have a awesome time just as a family and meet some fans down there now going to dinner and then maybe walking river st.”

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo returned for its third season Thursday night with two episodes featuring somewhat less flatulence and more conflict.

The reality show ended last season with June Shannon and Sugar Bear’s lavish commitment ceremony.

The first episode kicks off with a flashback to the ceremony “one month ago,” and flashes forward to present day with a trailerful of noise involving everyone being out of pads at the same time.

Honey Boo Boo’s father, Sugar Bear, won’t be moved to get some, saying that, as he lives with six females: “I know more about feminine hygiene products than any man should.”

That’s when it occurs to him that even though he loves his family more than anything, he needs to get away from them sometimes and he sets up his “manper” in the front yard – a rickety camper decked out with a deer skull, hula-girl figurine, Nerf basketball hoop and cuckoo clock. Mamma June’s not happy about it, but Sugar Bear is a happy hibernator.

Pumpkin tries out her wanna-be beauty school tricks on her family in the living room, transformed into Poot-Poot’s Salon. Chubbs screams when her mustache gets waxed, and Mama June looks like the Cesar Romero vintage of the Joker when her face and neck are covered in avocado mask, which Honey Boo Boo says makes her look “like Beetlejuice”. Sugar Bear luxuriates in the manper, cutting up a watermelon while explaining that it’s “a freakin’ estrogen fest in there”.

Then the family takes off for the Redneck Games, an annual fest involving lots of mud, lots of rolling around in said mud and Cornbread, the redneck of the year in 2012 (it was left unclear whether he kept his title). Baby Kaitlyn wins cutest redneck and Honey Boo Boo sulks because she doesn’t take home any prizes.

The second episode opens with Honey Boo Boo, home for the summer, shunted aside by her sisters, who have boyfriends, or, in Pumpkin’s case: “I don’t need a boyfriend. I have way more important things to do. He’d just slow me down anyway.”

After Honey Boo Boo said she doesn’t want to turn out like Pumpkin, but not before a prolonged staring contest with the camera, June Shannon enrolls her in cheerleading camp for the summer.

Anna and Jessica belch with their boyfriends, and Mama June knows it’s time for the talk.

“Boys try to get in girls’ Froot Loops,” she tells them, before the discussion devolves into talk of biscuits, motorboats.

And Sugar Bear gives the boys the talk, covering all the bases. It’s important because “you guys are getting close to my girls like two roaches on a bacon bit,” and “these girls can be nuttier than a port-a-potty at a peanut festival.” Sugar Bear ends it up by urging them to “treat ‘em with respect – don’t make ‘em cry,” which is advice we could all use once in a while, especially the good folks at TLC.

The episode ends with Alana Thompson at her cheerleading performance, where she says she wants to make her family proud.

Honey Boo Boo’s family was involved in a car accident in Georgia this week that required some of the reality stars to be hospitalized briefly.

Alana Thompson and her family were reportedly out shopping when the crash happened on Monday night.

Gossip website TMZ has reported that Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson was driving with Mama June and daughters Alana “Honey Boo Boo,” Jessica, and Lauryn “Pumpkin” in the vehicle.

“They were at a red light, waiting to turn left,” TMZ reported.

“The light turned green and Sugar Bear began the turn. A guy driving a truck was allegedly speeding in the opposite direction with his lights off and crashed into them.”

A source told TMZ that Sugar Bear has a contusion on his back, Mama June has a back and neck sprain, Honey Boo Boo hit her head against a passenger window and has a headache, and Pumpkin has severe chest bruises and is having panic attacks.

“As many of you have heard we were in a car accident last night. It was really scary for us, since it was the first time any of us had ever been in a wreck,” June Shannon said in a statement obtained by Entertainment Weekly.

“We are definitely really sore today, but our top priority is to celebrate Pumpkin’s birthday. She turned 14 today and no matter how sore we feel we are going to go out and celebrate. As always we want to thank everyone for their support and well wishes.”

Honey Boo Boo’s family appeared on Steve Harvey’s show last month and her sister Chickadee farted in the middle of the interview.

Eight-year old Alana Thompson and her family were interview by Steve Harvey and while mother June Shannon was rambling about something or other, Chickadee interrupted to inform the group that she had to fart.

Chickadee let out some major gas, the family laughed and groaned and Steve Harvey reacted in the only sane way possible: via stunned silence.

Honey Boo Boo’s mother, June Shannon, shares her family’s favorite Thanksgiving delicacy, cranberry lasagna.

“Alana’s favorite thing is cranberry sauce,” Mama June says.

“I always have to keep it in the house, even if it’s not Thanksgiving. She loves me to make what we call our cranberry lasagna.”

The cranberry sauce cans can also be used as hand weights, as June Shannon demonstrates in a rigorous 10-second workout.

Moving on, the Mama June lists the ingredients other than cranberry sauce that you’ll need to replicate this treat: A pan, a knife, and some sugar.

“We do thoroughly enjoy cranberry sauce as a family,” June Shannon says as she slices the sauce into hockey-puck sized slabs, arranges them in the pan and then douses them with sugar.

After a couple of hours in the fridge, it’s ready.

“I hate to say it but Alana would probably, if I let her, she would eat this whole thing,” June Shannon says after sampling her handiwork and declaring it to be pretty good.

“Cranberry sauce is kind of like the food of the Gods.”
