After the Mark McDaniels saga, Mama June spoke out to clear the air.
Looks like the turmoil at the Honey Boo Boo household is finally coming to an end. Well, according to Mama June it is, anyway. The Thompson/Shannon family matriarch has been doing press lately, sharing her side of the story with anyone, who will listen. And according to her side, she is single, not dating former flame and convicted child molester Mark McDaniel.
Mama June and TLC's professional relationship might be over, but the girls are well provided for.
She is also, in her words, being taken care of by TLC along with her three youngest daughters Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, 9, Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, 14, and Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon.

Honey Boo Boo and her family have narrowly escaped serious harm after getting involved in car accident on Monday (January 6th 2014) in Milledgeville, Georgia.
The 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' reality stars; including Honey Boo Boo herself, her mother Mama June, her sisters Pumpkin and Jessica and her father Sugar Bear; were nearly all injured after a speeding truck with no lights on crashed into their Chevrolet Suburban as Sugar Bear went to turn left at a traffic light according to TMZ.
8-year-old Boo Boo (real name Alana Thompson) is reportedly suffering from a headache after banging her head on the window, while her father has a bruised back, her mother has a sprained neck and back and her sister Pumpkin has bruises on her chest and is having panic attacks. TMZ did not report that Jessica suffered any damage and neither of the other two sisters, Anna and Kaitlyn, were in the vehicle at the time.

Mama and Papa Honey Boo Boo tied the knot this weekend, but apparently the family who sell themselves to a TV show may have only had the wedding to make some money.
The people responsible for bringing in Alana 'Honey Boo Boo' Thompson into the world finally walked down the aisle and exchanged vows after nine years together on Saturday (May 4) in what was a great day for forecasters of TLC's viewing figures. But it turns out that June 'Mama June' Shannon and Mike 'Sugar Bear' Thompson may not have married for love, but for the money that comes with airing your wedding on television.
A few pictures of the ceremony have emerged, with Mama dressed in what looks like the cover from an old sofa. It also looks as though the whole thing was a local affair, with the family's hometown in rural McIntyre, Georgia, taking up the background.
June 'Mama June' Shannon and Alana 'Honey Boo Boo' Thompson will be back soon!
Honey Boo Boo is returning to screens in July!
Is this good news or bad news? We're not sure. Honey Boo Boo is returning on July 17, 2013 - she's back, and more terrifying than ever. The 7-year-old television star returns with a new episode on TLC this summer, though it may not all be about the beauty pageant kid this time.
According to the Los Angeles Times, it's possible that Honey Boo Boo's mama will marry her long-time beau Sugar Bear in the latest instalment. In fact, the couple married in a May 5 ceremony, with Us Weekly running photographs of the newlyweds wearing camouflage and driving off into the distance in a yellow ATV with cans tied to the bag. It is believed that the nuptials were filmed, probably for the July episode.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is one of TLC's biggest shows, averaging 2.3 million viewers last fall. It puts it on par with the channel's other big-hitters like Sister Wives, Breaking Amish and Long Island Medium. However, June 'Mama' Shannon and Alana 'Boo Boo' Thompson have become targets across the media, while the family were parodied on South Park. The show has also drawn unexpected praise, particularly for Alana's endorsement of her gay uncle Lee. In a piece for the Los Angeles Times last August, writer Ada Calhoun called the "ritual stoning" of the family "a little ludicrous."

Mama June and Sugar Bear's wedding should make for some excellent television material.
There’s finally a Honey Boo Boo wedding on the way, as the tiny beauty queen’s parents – June Shannon and Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson are getting married. The unusual couple met nine years ago in an online chatroom and got together soon afterwards, according th The Daily Mail. Alana or Honey Boo Boo, as viewers of the show know her was born two years later.
It’s been confirmed that the wedding will definitely be filmed and broadcast on the family’s reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. The show itself came about after Honey Boo Boo and her… eccentric mother gained enormous popularity, when they appeared on the TLC show toddlers and tiaras. Seeing the pageant mom and daughter’s success with audiences, TLC created the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo series, which is currently filming its second season.
Meanwhile, Honey Boo Boo still competes in pageants and she recently returned home from New York where she picked up yet another crown – that of Miss Trump Hotel New York 2013. Seeing as how Donald Trump is the owner of the Miss Universe pageant, maybe this title will give Alana an edge, should she ever compete for the ultimate crown. If success continues to stick to her and her family like it has so far though, she definitely won’t have to.

You can come out from behind the sofa now, folks. It turns out that one of the most disturbing TV rumors of recent months is NOT true. Honey Boo Boo’s Mom, Mama June will NOT be appearing on DWTS. Those rumors began when an ABC insider informed New York Daily News that June Shannon would be appearing on the forthcoming season of the celebrity dancing show. A rep for TLC, however, have told Huffington Post that those rumors are false. Huge breaths of relief being sighed the nation over, we wouldn’t wonder. The very thought of Mama June’s brash voice bellowing across a dance rehearsal space was filling us with a sense of unprecedented dread.
Mama June made the headlines recently for her massive weight loss. She dropped her weight by 115 pounds, despite her love of fried food and ‘sketti’ (a worryingly calorific mix of spaghetti with a ‘sauce’ comprised of ketchup and melted butter) and insisted that the loss was down to the hectic schedule that her daughter’s reality TV show (Here Comes Honey Boo Boo) places on her. Sketti’s still on the menu, it would appear, but she’s just a bit more active than she used to be. How many calories does ‘bellowing consistently at your family’ burn up, we wonder?

News just in: Christmas isn’t officially over. Oh no. Not until we’ve all watched the Honey Boo Boo Christmas Special, which airs on Sunday night (February 10, 2013) at 8pm. Not only do we get to see the new lightweight Mama June (well, she’s lost 100lbs already – perhaps ‘lightweight’ is pushing it a bit) but we also get to see the Thompson family decorating their artificial Christmas tree, as only the Thompson’s know how.
After a lot of wrangling with white spiky branches and a cringe-worthy exchange of double-entendres between Sugar Bear and Mama June (in front of the children no less!), the tree was eventually erected (and no, that wasn’t actually one of the double entendres – that’s actually a bit more highbrow that what you’ll get to see on screen) but when they couldn’t find the tree topper, Alana, aka Honey Boo Boo had a novel idea of what they should they should put on top of the tree instead: a live farm animal (we won’t completely spoil it for you by telling you which type of animal it was). Needless to say, the end result was something of a catastrophe, leading Honey Boo Boo to remark “this is a family secret,” for fear that Sugar Bear might find out and punish them.
According to TMZ, Mama June says she lost 100lbs since the series began, but mainly due to her hectic TV schedule. “They have me running around and going different places ... I guess it's paying off,” she explained.
A strict Honey Boo Boo ban has been slammed down on cast-member Crazy Tony, simply because he's too damn crazy. Tony stars in TLC's mega-hit series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo - about a terrifying six-year-old child beauty pageant participant named Alana Thompson.
According to TMZ.com, Tony was arrested in November 2012 for a dangerous prank in which he dressed as a giant gorilla and scared people on the side of a freeway. It was a stunt that Honey Boo Boo matriarch Mama June was none too pleased about. In fact, she's no longer comfortable with Tony appearing on the show, saying, "We love him as a friend ... but that was a crazy story..Not trying to be mean, but we want to keep it family oriented." Honey's mother also made it clear that while Tony goes by the name of "cousin" on the show, he's not actually related to the family. She added, "Crazy Tony's just a family friend... who is just crazy." Did anyone mention that he's crazy, too? A representative for Tony says he's disappointed by the news, adding, "TV's changed that family."
Last week, it was reported that Mama June is dumping all the earnings from the TLC reality show into five separate trust funds for her children and grandchildren. The family reportedly earn between $15,000 and $20,000 per episode.
