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.

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."

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.

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are prime examples of reality TV subjects gone wrong. Heidi ended up developing an addiction to plastic surgery and blew a load of their money on that, plus reports a while back said that Spencer spent a ton of dough on crystal. Not the drug, no, literal crystals. Shiny stones. Anyway, there's one reality TV family who is treating their money right: the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo family.
According to TMZ Mama June, Honey Boo Boo's mom, has been stashing away their earnings in trust funds for her four daughters- star of the show Alana aged 7, and her sisters Lauren aged 12, Jessica aged 15 and Anna aged 18, plus another fund for June's granddaughter Kaitlyn.
"TLC [the company that pays us] puts the money into the girls' trust accounts for me and then I get an email telling me how much everyone gets,' she explained. "You're never gonna see me drive a Range Rover or a Mercedes. I'll drive one if someone else pays for it. Never gonna live above my means."
'Buckwild' is an American reality TV show that has been described as the meeting of Honey Boo-Boo Child and Jersey Shore, and has been greatly criticised by West Virginia Senator, Joe Manchin, because it panders to "ugly, inaccurate stereotypes" of his home state.
Buckwild follows a group of West Virginia teens who "share a deep pride in contemporary small-town American life and a passion for living it to the fullest, while making up their own rules as they go," a press release said. Before it's production even started the show came under criticism and a PhD candidate, Jinny Turman-Deal, reported by The DA said: "Honestly, I think people have a reason to be concerned. The characters of these shows are usually the most eccentric and don't represent the whole population. I know a lot of people from New Jersey who resent 'Jersey Shore,'" she said. "But, hopefully there's something deeper to this show, and it doesn't simply reinforce a stereotype."
The Senator himself said "As a proud West Virginian, I am writing to formally request that you put a stop to the travesty called 'Buckwild'... Instead of showcasing the beauty of our people and our state, you preyed on young people, coaxed them into displaying shameful behavior -- and now you are profiting from it. That is just wrong." Adding, "I hope that as you consider your decision, that you would consider your own state, your own community and your own children. Would you try to portray them in this light?"
