Mama June and Sugar Bear have been in LA doing talk shows to promote the big show finale.
The Season 2 last episode featured their commitment ceremony.
Mama June also said: “Thanks so much for supporting us through another season looking forward to next season as we start backup production tomorrow…”
There is a confirmation that Here Comes Honey Boo Boo will be back for season 3 on TLC.
It is still unknown when it will actually air.
June Shannon is seen getting a shave from her daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon in her hit show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
Mama June, 34, is shown in the season two finale of the show, preparing for her commitment ceremony with longtime love Sugar Bear.
The bride was keen that everything should be perfect for her big day, including her own personal grooming.
Loyal daughter Lauryn is seen attacking her mum’s “neck hairs” with a razor as the family prepare for the ceremony, which took place back in May.
“Mama still hasn’t shaved her neck hairs for the commitment ceremony,” Pumpkin helpfully points out.

“And I think I’m gonna help her with that so we can check it off the list.”
Once the shave is complete June Shannon is seen getting her make-up applied, choosing a bright pink lippie and green eyeshadow to get the blushing bride look.
The green makeup coordinated perfectly with Mama June’s unusual choice in wedding gown, a “camo-style” dress, with the entire family later joining the family matriarch in full on camouflage gear.
Honey Boo Boo, now 8, served as flower girl at the ceremony, which took place at the family’s home in Georgia.
Mama June and Sugar Bear met almost ten years ago in an online chat room following relationship break-ups. They hit it off and two years later welcomed the star of the family, Honey Boo Boo.
Honey Boo Boo shot to fame on the fly-on-the-wall pageant show Toddlers & Tiaras in 2009 and scored her own spin-off series last year.
Kris Jenner has come under fire for her show once again, this time by comedienne Chelsea Handler, Star magazine reported.
The publication quotes a source claiming Chelsea Handler told Kris Jenner to “shut her pie hole” after she started a war of words with President Barack Obama.
“She said that Honey Boo Boo’s mom has more class [than Kris Jenner]” the insider added.

Although there appears to be no firm decision on the future of Kris Jenner’s talk show, Radar reported last night that it is close to being cancelled.
“It is a very crowded market and Kris didn’t do anything to set herself apart from the field,” a source told the site.
“Believe it or not, most of America doesn’t want to hear about the Kardashians for an hour every day.”
June Shannon prepared to walk down the aisle in the season finale of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
Mama June, 34, is shown in a trailer, released on Monday, preparing for her commitment ceremony with longtime love Sugar Bear.
Sugar Bear, whose real name is Mike Thompson, is meanwhile seen waiting for his bride, dressed sharply in a black shirt, bright orange vest, matching tie and boutonnière.
Their 8-year-old daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson served as flower girl at the ceremony and was seen in the clip dropping petals along the aisle in a pretty pink and orange dress.
As Mama June looks out to the crowd who are waiting for her under an outdoor tent, she is asked off-camera if she is nervous.
“I ain’t that nervous, might be, when I open up the door, that I’m actually doing it,” she responds.
The commitment ceremony took place in May at the family’s home in Georgia.
The ceremony also included Honey Boo Boo’s three stepsisters, who wore pink dresses with blue ribbons around their waist and carried multi-colored bouquets of flowers.
Mama June and Sugar Bear met nine years ago in an online chat room following relationship break-ups.
They hit it off and two years later welcomed Honey Boo Boo.
Sugar Bear had proposed to Mama June twice before, but after rejecting his proposals she accepted when he popped the question earlier this year.
Their precocious child shot to fame on the fly-on-the-wall pageant show Toddlers & Tiaras in 2009 and scored her own spin-off series last year.
The season two finale of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo will air on Wednesday on TLC.
Honey Boo Boo’s mother, June Shannon, has shared her top tips for perfecting her favorite pastime – couponing.
In a new trailer for Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Mama June, 33, suggests organizing coupons in a binder with labels for each individual product, and bringing the binder to the store.
While Mama June uses coupons to score discounts on many things, she says the one item she splurges on most is toilet paper: “Because everybody’s got to wipe their ass! I mean, hello!”
June Shannon, who often refers to herself as the coupon queen, exchanged vows with her boyfriend, Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson, at her home in Georgia in May.
The trailer shows Mama June and Honey Boo Boo painstakingly clipping out coupons and sticking them into their purple binder.
Then they take their tickets to the grocery store, where they scope out the best discounts.
Mama June suggests organizing coupons in a binder with labels for each individual product, and bringing the binder to the store
“I think the thing that people most ever spend on is probably laundry detergent,” explains Mama June.
“With a coupon you can get the smaller size laundry detergent for like $2 if it’s on sale.”
June Shannon then gets confused doing the math, saying: “Buy four smaller bottles that equal the big bottle, you’re spending $4 versus $17.”
There is one product that Mama June and her gang buy without the help of her coupon collection.
“There’s not a lot of meat product coupons out there these days,” she says.
“So if you can find these, like, staple items, then you can provide that money that you saved to buy your meat.”
While toilet paper is one of her favorite items to buy with coupons, June Shannon says that she’s actually low on it at the moment, thanks to Honey Boo Boo.
The reality mom explains that when she and Sugar Bear went out for their anniversary, Honey Boo Boo and her babysitter decided to decorate the entire house – inside and outside – in toilet paper.
“I didn’t get Mama or Sugar Bear nothin’ for their anniversary,” Honey Boo Boo, who turned eight on Sunday, says in the clip.
“So I wanted to make their house very purdy.”
June Shannon rolls her eyes as she remembers the incident, saying: “We actually put my whole trash can out filled with toilet paper, when I could have used that for six months to wipe my ass with.”
Honey Boo Boo received not one but three cakes to celebrate her eighth birthday over this past weekend.
However, it seems that Honey Boo Boo didn’t even get to enjoy them, for most of the pink dessert ended up on her parent’s faces.
A food fight between Mama June and Sugar Bear broke out after Alana Thompson blew out the candles of her cake.
Over the Labor Day weekend the reality TV family travelled to Panama Beach in Florida.
While on vacation, June Shannon decided to throw a birthday celebration for her daughter at their 400-room Holiday Inn hotel.
Mama June invited all the guests staying at the hotel to join the family down at the pool for swimming, cake and a photo opportunity with the clan.
A flyer was placed on every room, reading: “You are invited to come down to the pool from 6-8pm to celebrate Alana (Honey Boo Boo)’s 8th birthday!
“Come down and hang out with the family and have some cake and go swimming! Hope to see you there!!!! Alana.”
The hotel was sold out over the weekend due to the American holiday so guests were excited to find out that Honey Boo Boo’s family was staying in the resort.
Mama June took to the microphone and had everyone line up for a photo with the family.
Honey Boo Boo received not one but three cakes to celebrate her eighth birthday
After an hour of happy snaps, everyone got together and sung happy birthday to Honey Boo Boo.
June Shannon had two huge Hello Kitty cakes to cut up and hand out to the hotel fans.
But at the end of the night a cake fight had broken out between a family friend and Mama June.
Sugar Bear also jumped in on the fun and his brother Uncle Poodle joined too with all four covered in the sugary treat.
During their vacation, the family also spent time at the hotel pool and beach where Honey Boo Boo had a blast on a lobster float and a shark boogie board.
At one point in the day, Honey Boo Boo and Lauryn had pushed their bodyguard into the pool for some fun.
And no trip to Panama Beach would be complete without a trip to Miracle Strip Pier.
The family headed straight to the amusement park where they went on several rides and had their faces painted.
At one point Sugar Bear and Mama June even shared a tender kiss.
The couple recently tied the knot during a ceremony in May at their home in Georgia.
June Shannon and Mike Thompson met on an online chat room nine years ago following relationship break-ups.
After hitting it off they got together and their daughter, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson was born two years later.
Honey Boo Boo shot to fame on the fly-on-the-wall pageant show Toddlers & Tiaras in 2009, which saw her score her own spin-off series last year. Her three stepsisters and parents also star.
Sugar Bear, 41, proposed to Mama June twice previously but got a ‘no’ both times.
However, when he popped the question this year June Shannon decided to accept the offer.
Honey Boo Boo was born on August 28, 2005.
A new Here Comes Honey Boo Boo trailer shows June Shannon downing shots and dancing the night away during her bachelorette party.
Mama June, 33, who tied the knot at her Georgia home in May, explains in the clip that once she gets her “body in motion” there’s “pretty much, like, no stopping”.
Meanwhile her husband-to-be, Sugar Bear is seen celebrating his final days as a bachelor in a less raucous way – talking and reflecting on his relationship with friends around a BBQ.
Sugar Bear sweetly tells pals gathered: “I want to get committed. I mean I want to settle down now. I’ve been a renegade for a while.
“I wanna [sic] have fun but I just want something that when I come home, I’ve got something at home.”
“The way [women] b**** and all I still love ’em [sic]. I’m going to be there. As long as she’s got a heart and loves me for who I am . . . I’m happy.
“She can be big, fat, small, skinny. ‘m still going to love her.”

June Shannon however doesn’t touch on “love” while partying at Wild Bill’s in Atlanta, Georgia. Instead she is clearly focused on having a good time.
“On the limo ride up here, I got a little buzzed, I feel kinda [sic] good, I’m ready to get the rest of my drink on,” she exclaims as she enters the country music venue.
Once inside the mother-of-four is seen drinking at the bar, bumping and grinding with men on the dance floor and even getting up on stage.
“If it’s a good beat it just . . . overtakes me,” June Shannon later explains.
The footage is only a taste of what the now newlyweds got up to and a full-length episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, set to air tonight, will reveal more.
June Shannon and Mike Sugar Bear Thompson met on an online chat room nine years ago following relationship break-ups.
After hitting it off they got together and their daughter, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson was born two years later.
Honey Boo Boo shot to fame on the fly-on-the-wall pageant show Toddlers & Tiaras in 2009, which saw her score her own spin-off series last year. Her three stepsisters and parents also star.
Sugar Bear, 41, proposed to Mama June twice previously but got a “no” both times.
However, when he popped the question this year June Shannon decided to accept the offer.
Offering him some words of wisdom for the future, one of his friends Doode said: “I’ve been married four-and-a-half years and the advice I can give Sugar Bear is just to keep Mama happy.”
Another friend added: “The hard part about being married is keeping her happy.”
Honey Boo Boo and her family proved yet again that their approach to life is piloted by their own unique and quirky brand of American values.
In an upcoming episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Anna “Chickadee”, 18, and Lauryn “Pumpkin”, 13, are seen crashing into each while holding giant balls as Mama June eggs them on and Honey Boo Boo delights in the carnage.
In a clip from the episode, the reality show family from McIntyre, Georgia is seen enjoying a picnic in the park.
While June Shannon, Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson and Honey Boo Boo relax in the shade, the two sisters face off in the potentially dangerous game.
They are seen standing apart before charging at each other with large rubber balls in an attempt to knock the other down.
“Y’all are supposed to hold the balls,” shrieks Mama June, clearly enjoying the action.

“I did pretty good, I knocked Anna down on the first try,” says Pumpkin.
“Knocking Pumpkin down is like knocking a rhino down,” says sore loser Anna.
“I thought my sisters’ heads were going to fall off,” Honey Boo Boo gleefully exclaims.
Anna then pretends to be a bull and Pumpkin a sumo wrestler. As they start to charge each other for the umpteenth time, Mama June yells: “Hold your balls!”
The girls are both seen toppling to the ground.
“You just knocked the livin’ p*ss out of me,” says Pumpkin.
“I knocked Anna down because of my momentus. It’s science,” continued the reality star, displaying her admirable grasp of the English language.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo new episode airs tonight 8/9c on TLC.
As preparations got underway for June Shannon and Sugar Bear’s long-awaited commitment ceremony – which took place on May 5 and will air later in the year – the family enjoyed a rather sweet moment.
Googling the word “wedding”, Honey Boo Boo proceeds to ask her mom and dad about their plans for a first dance.
“Have you and Sugar Bear ever danced, Mama?” 18-year-old Anna “Chickadee” Shannon queries.
“No! Sugar Bear ain’t have no rhythm,” June Shannon responds.
Not willing to take the dig, Sugar Bear banters back that Mama June doesn’t have any rhythm either, before leaping to his feet and coaxing her up for a whirl around the living room.

“How I’m going to dance with June is I’m just gonna put my arms around her and go for a ride!” Mike Thompson, 41, cheekily begins.
“Dancing is all about hand placement,” June Shannon counters as she takes the lead, which is followed by jeers from her girls, who encourage Sugar Bear to “grab her tushy”.
While the fun moment that ended in a lighthearted wrestle had three of June Shannon’s daughters in raptures, one person wasn’t laughing.
Honey Boo Boo, 7, was mortified by the display and cautioned her parents to get their act together before their big day.
“Sugar Bear and Mama better take a dance class before the commitment ceremony. I don’t wanna be embarrassed,” Alana Thompson warns.
“After the children saw me and Sugar dance, they recommended that we get professional help,” June Shannon, 34, later admits, referring to her partner’s moves as The Rabbit Dance.
Alana Thompson, aka Honey Boo Boo, was taken back to her glamorous contest days in Wednesday’s episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
Honey Boo Boo was clearly enjoying herself as she tried on garish and colorful gowns for her forthcoming role as flower girl at her mother June Shannon’s commitment ceremony to father Sugar Bear.
“To be honest, I look good in all dresses,” Honey Boo Boo told viewers after trying on a bright fuchsia pink dress complete with frilled skirt.
Alana Thompson appeared to enjoy the expedition a lot more than her older sisters, with Lauryn “Pumpkin” and Jessica “Chubbs” not used to wearing dresses.
Older sister Anna “Chickadee” faired a little better due to her being “really skinny” according to Pumpkin.
However, there was an equal amount of discussion about the smell of Pumpkin’s feet than the dresses themselves.
An ultra short minidress was dismissed by June Shannon as “not age appropriate”, before she settled for a pink and blue number.

The sisters were busying themselves in preparations for the forthcoming commitment ceremony and to take their mind of family patriarch Sugar Bear’s mystery illness.
Sugar Bear, real name Mike Thompson, remained in hospital recovering while the girls stayed in charge of cleaning the house and arranging a bridal shower for Mama June.
Of course, the food list for the big event ended up taking priority, with meatballs, steak and a buffet all being thrown forward as possible options, before the girls settled on a pizza and chicken wings for the bash.
“We hope this bridal shower will hope Mama calm down, because she needs a little celebration or something,” Chubbs told viewers.
The big day came with June Shannon accosted by her sister’s new boyfriend Jose who found himself the only man in the restaurant as June and her friends chowed down on food and drink.
However, Pumpkin ruined the sisters’ unusually ladylike behavior by squashing a slice of tiramisu in her mother’s face, which June Shannon objected to, mainly because she is not a fan of the Italian desert.
Mama June then got emotional when it came to thanking her friends and family for attending and said she hoped they’d all be at the commitment ceremony.
Earlier, the four girls had been left in charge of keeping house while Mama June was visiting her partner in the hospital.
Honey Boo Boo appeared to have a very novel way of keeping the house clean, using the same mop for the floor as the inside of the fridge and the cupboard doors.
“It is very emotional – for me and the kids,” June Shannon said.
“I’m physically drained. The other girls really look up to him as a father figure.”
Honey Boo Boo was thrilled to be reunited with her father when he was finally allowed home and the pair shared a welcome home thumb wrestle.
Sugar Bear appeared to be in rather amorous mood after putting his feet up for a few days, asking a spluttering June Shannon: “How do you feel about having another baby?”
June Shannon’s larger than life size is all part of her attraction, according to her beau Sugar Bear.
“I consider myself a chubby chaser,” Honey Boo Boo’s father revealed on Wednesday night’s episode of the show, which saw him propose for the third time to his partner of nine years June Shannon.
Having turned him down twice before, it took some persuading to get Mama June to agree to a commitment ceremony.
After being confronted with a ring inside a golden egg after a tasty chicken dinner, Sugar Bear needed his three stepdaughters and daughter Honey Boo Boo to help talk their mother round.
“The M word scares me because he’s been through two marriages and it hasn’t worked,” June Shannon admitted.
“Marriages are easy to get into and hard to get out of.”
Mama June may have said “no” to Sugar Bear’s marriage proposal, but the lack of paperwork attracted June to the idea of a commitment ceremony.
“I don’t believe in forever but I do believe in Sugar Bear,” she confessed, before their children make the couple confess their love for one another.

And it wasn’t long before the duo were reminiscing at old photographs of themselves with Sugar Bear objecting to June Shannon’s decision to lose some weight before the ceremony, as it emerged that the couple had met in an online chat room.
June Shannon and daughters Pumpkin, 13 and Chubbs, 15 began planning an exercise routine, with the reality show matriarch concerned about her two middle daughters being picked on in school.
Pumpkin thought she had got her regime off to a good start, walking around the block and eating “apples and pears”, maintaining that “an apple a day keeps the fat away”.
But the family soon got bored with exercise, with June Shannon needing to run to the bathroom after just one sit up.
“We are a dysfunctional family,” she declared before taking Sugar Bear to a local wedding planner where he was hoping their ceremony would include “an ice sculpture or something cool like that”.
Unsure about the details of their big day, Mama June and Sugar Bear were agreed on one thing.
“The ceremony can be crappy as hell but when it’s time to eat, people have got to eat,” June Shannon said.
However, she got laughed out of the building after asserting she was only planning to spend $2,000 on the big day.
“This commitment ceremony is about having a good time more than anything else,” said Sugar Bear, while the two began to plan their list of 60 guests.
Discussing whether to invite friends L’il Willie, Pork Chop, Boxcar, Catfish, Corn, Niblet and Phlegmie, June Shannon dismissed some of her beau’s guest proposals as being “too crazy”.
Despite her reservations, even June Shannon began to get excited about the looming big event, agreeing to Honey Boo Boo’s request to be a flower girl.
“I’ll add a bit of paint to the barn and get my roots done,” she mused.
“Everybody in McIntyre are going to want a piece of this.”
However, after a rather nerve-racking effort to teach Chubbs to drive, events took a bad turn when Sugar Bear was rushed to hospital in pain.
June Shannon was clearly upset when Sugar Bear’s diagnosis was delayed before doctors informed her he was suffering from pneumonia and pancreatitis.
“Without Sugar Bear, I’d be lost,” Mama June wept.
Luckily, Sugar Bear appeared to pull through, although remained in hospital much to the chagrin of his extended family who sent colorful get well cards.
Honey Boo Boo’s sister Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon and father Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson have met their match in the form of a 4 lb sandwich.
In the latest episode of hit reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, 13-year-old Pumpkin got ready to tackle the “Pigzilla” – consisting of 3 lbs of meat and a 1 lb bun.
The reality show family from McIntyre Georgia decamp to Papa Buck’s BBQ to get gluttonous, with Pumpkin hoping to be the first woman to win.
“Pigzilla has been challenged 55 times and it’s only defeated once – by a professional eater,” family matriarch June Shannon explains.
“I think it’s going to be defeated twice because, hey, I’ve got my own professional eater on my hands. We’ll see which beast wins.”
With winnings of $200 up for grabs and only 45 minutes to scarf the giant meat and bread creation, Pumpkin and Sugar Bear steel themselves for the task ahead.

“Before I eat Pigzilla, I need to concentrate,” says Pumpkin.
“I need to get in the zone. I don’t need any distractions.”
Luckily, Mama June had plenty of advice for her eating prodigy, who she hoped would be the “redneck Kobayashi”.
“Dip the bun in the water,” June Shannon tells Pumpkin, who put on her “professional shirt” for the occasion.
“Every time she wears her professional shirt, you know she’s being serious,” says June Shannon.
After learning the sandwich would cost her $30 if it didn’t get eaten, she urges her family onward: “Hell no, you better eat that s***.”
However, the challenge is only complete if the participant keeps the sandwich down for five minutes, according to Mama June.
“And then you can puke,” June Shannon confides.
June Shannon has revealed that she is legally blind as a result of childhood cataracts that were not properly treated.
Mama June’s eyesight is obviously an issue during Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Season 2, when the family goes go-karting to celebrate her husband Sugar Bear’s 41st birthday.
Honey Boo Boo’s mother admits that her blurry vision make her afraid to get into a go-kart, and has prevented her from getting a driver’s license.
June Shannon’s eyesight has been an issue in the past when interacting with seven-year old daughter Honey Boo Boo and her sisters Pumpkin, 13, Chubbs, 16, and 18-year-old Chickadee.
During the season premiere, June Shannon, 33, was shown putting her daughters’ cell phones into a cheese ball bucket when they refused to stop texting. But when Mama June uses her own phone, she is forced to squint and hold it inches from her face.
June Shannon has revealed that she is legally blind as a result of childhood cataracts that were not properly treated
During the first season, June Shannon was shown having to squint incredibly hard to see the numbers at Bingo. Her imperfect vision is also an issue when she tries to save money by doing Honey Boo Boo’s pageant make-up herself.
“My mama better stick to couponing and stay away from the makeup table,” Alana Thompson aka Honey Boo Boo says.
Though cataracts are very common in older people – with around 50% of adults developing them by age 80 – experts estimate that a baby’s chances of being born with cataracts is only around one in 5,000.
In the past Mama June has expressed insecurities about her “forklift foot” that was run over by a piece of heavy machinery. Even Sugar Bear wasn’t allowed to see her sockless.
But for the most part, June Shannon is confident, happy and doesn’t let physical issues get her down.
After encouragement from her family, Mama June takes the wheel at the go-kart track – and even laughs when the kart gets jammed and she has to be rescued by three attendants.
What are childhood cataracts?
- A cataract is an eye disease in which the clear lens of one or both eyes becomes cloudy
- It is estimated that one in 5,000 children are born with cataracts
- In most cases, the exact cause is not known, but some possible causes include genetic conditions or infections during pregnancy
- Doctors recommend performing surgery within the first two months and definitely by four months
- Cataract operations are generally very successful, with a low risk of serious complications
June Shannon was unimpressed with partner Sugar Bear’s meager seduction technique in the premiere episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
Wanting to get a little “frisky”, Sugar Bear tried to woo Mama June with a small cream-filled cupcake on his birthday.
Unfortunately for him, June Shannon remained unmoved.
“A new crockpot, new deep fryer, might get you to first base,” she said.
“It takes a lot to turn this big mama on.”
“I need some quality alone time,” Mike Thompson said, after having packed June Shannon’s four children off to a babysitter.
“I really love June, she’s my woman.”
June Shannon, 33, finally gave in, telling her long term beau: “Just be quick.”
The family had celebrated Sugar Bear’s 41st birthday with deep fried pork chops and a Dukes of Hazzard-themed bash namely because it’s his favorite show.
Sugar Bear tried to woo Mama June with a small cream-filled cupcake on his birthday
Mike Thompson and the four girls – 7-year-old Alana aka Honey Boo Boo, Anna (Chickadee), 18, Lauryn (Pumpkin), 13, and 16-year-old Jessica (Chubbs) took it in turns to thrash a piñata shaped like a pair of Daisy Duke shorts.
It was an action packed double episode for the family from rural McIntyre Georgia beginning with Mama June daringly confiscating her daughter’s cell phones for not doing their chores.
Despite June Shannon’s hope that her girls could enjoy some family time without “electronics”, the girls decided to cover themselves in plastic wrap, pour cooking oil on the floor, grease themselves with butter and turn the house into a “Redneck Slip`n’ Slide – Extreme Home Edition”, according to Chubbs.
Unhappy at the mess her brood had made, June Shannon returned their cell phones, but not before ordering them to clean up.
“I would prefer my girls with phones rather than destroying my house,” she said.
The family bonded rather more over their love of road kill.
In a squeamish turn of events, the family heard a pig had been found dead nearby.
“We’re not really hunters in our family,” June Shannon told viewers about road kill finds.
“We bring it home, skin it, cook it, eat it, save money. That’s the way the cycle of life works in our family.”
“Roadkill is any animal that didn’t look before it crossed the road,” added an excited Honey Boo Boo, before the family decamped to hang the pig, skin it, and then make pork and beans from the trotters and the tail.
The girls were equally thrilled by a family outing to a wrestling match, where Chickadee was in her element.
“I like wrestling because of people fighting each other and they’re some good looking folks in there,” she said.
“I love it. It’s my heart. My soul.”
“I like wrestling because it’s all my family do,” added Honey Boo Boo.
A go-karting trip also went down well, despite larger than life Mama June getting stuck in her vehicle after crashing.
It took three track workers to pull her go-kart back in action “because I’m kind of voluptuous”, she said.
The final moments of the show previewed next week’s episode where Sugar Bear finally takes the plunge and proposes to June Shannon.
Mama June has revealed she failed to recognize Miley Cyrus when the excited singer ran up and hugged her at a television studio.
June Shannon, 33, admitted the gaffe during an interview on the Wendy Williams Show.
Mama June has revealed she failed to recognize Miley Cyrus when the excited singer ran up and hugged her
Honey Boo Boo’s mother said: “This may sound bad on my part, but because it was so crazy at Good Morning America, [Miley Cyrus’] like, <<Oh my god, there’s Mama June!>> and she came up and hugged me because it was so fast, I didn’t realize it was her until after she walked by!”
June Shannon also made her infamous sketti and chunky pork and beans dishes, which Wendy Williams announced “tastes like home”.
She also chatted about her reasons for doing the hit show, explaining: “It gives the kids a more better future like, whenever they get older.”
“And I’m able to take the kids on vacations and see parts of the world they never have been able to see before.”
But it isn’t changing their lives entirely, as the savvy saver is filtering it all into trust funds.
June Shannon explained: “I don’t see that money. What it is, I’ve got it set up to where they automatically go in to all five accounts, the four girls and the grand baby, and they can’t touch it until they’re 21.”
Mama June enjoyed a taste of the glamorous life while promoting her reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo in New York.
Honey Boo Boo’s mother June Shannon got the full hair and make-up treatment before giving an interview to Good Morning America from Times Square in New York City.
June Shannon, 33, had on heavy foundation, dark eyeliner and pink lipstick for her on-set visit.
The reality star dressed comfortably in a draping turquoise blue short-sleeved blouse, loose-fitting black pants and a pair of white sneakers.
The Good Morning America crew surprised June Shannon with a taped message from Mario Lopez
June Shannon arrived with no make-up and with her blonde hair down, but spent some time in the stylist’s chair and had her facial cosmetics applied and hair pulled back for her interview.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo returned to TLC on July 17 and showed the self-proclaimed redneck family visit the White House, race around in go karts and attend a pro wrestling match.
Honey Boo Boo didn’t make the trip to New York City and was at the family’s rural home in McIntyre, Georgia.
“She’s asleep, we’re not morning people,” June Shannon said.
June Shannon also confirmed that she has a huge celebrity crush on Extra entertainment news host Mario Lopez.
The Good Morning America crew surprised June Shannon with a taped message from Mario Lopez in which he offered congratulations on her recent wedding and said he was “extremely flattered” to be her celebrity crush.
Honey Boo Boo’s mom, June Shannon, has opened up about putting weight back on after losing 100 lbs, why her family will never diet and her thoughts on getting Botox.
Mama June, 33, has also revealed that her daughter Alana Thompson (aka Honey Boo Boo), 7, is losing her “baby fat”.
The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch told InTouch: “I gain a couple of pounds back and then I lose them. But even if I gained the whole 100 pounds back, I’d be play with it.”
“A lot of larger people beat themselves up when they gain, but I’m really happy with myself.”
Mama June also revealed that her children, Anna, 18, Jessica, 16, Lauryn, 13, and Honey Boo Boo have lost weight too.
“They’ve all lost some weight too, but it’s just because we’ve been so busy. And Alana’s growing up and losing her baby fat!”
However, June Shannon – who grabbed attention for her signature dish of “sketti” – refuses to put her family on a diet.
“We eat what we like. I’m not trying to cook whatever’s cool. I cook what my family wants me to cook!”
June Shannon admits weight gain after losing 100 lbs
Earlier this year, June Shannon said that she had tipped the scales at 365 lbs before she started filming her TLC series and at the beginning of this year she weighed a lighter 263lbs.
Mama June said at the time: “With the show I’ve been more active. They have me running around and going different places… I guess it’s paying off.”
