Mama June
is puttin' her foot down ... BANNING Crazy Tony from appearing on future episodes of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" -- all because he's TOO DAMN crazy ... even for reality TV.

TMZ broke the story ... Tony was arrested in Nov. for taking part in a dangerous prank -- which involved a man scaring people on the side of a freeway in a giant gorilla suit -- a move Mama June was none too pleased about.

The "HBB" matriarch tells TMZ ... as of now, she's not comfortable having Tony appear on the TLC mega hit in light of the stunt, saying "We love him as a friend ... but that was a crazy story."

She continues, "Not trying to be mean, but we want to keep it family oriented."

Mama also makes it clear ... despite people calling him "cousin" on the show ... Tony's not related to the family, saying "Crazy Tony's just a family friend ... who is just crazy."

We reached out to Crazy, who told us he's super bummed out by the news ... adding, "TV's changed that family."

THIS is a perfect example of why tv programming is going down the toilet! WHAT is so entertaining about a backwards, uneducated, fat little girl and her dimensionless family?

Is he the guy who makes moonshine and masturbates inside a gorilla costume at the end of each show?

Obviously people are watching since they've been around for a while now. I saw a few episodes recently to see what all the fuss is about and have to admit I found it funny and I think the little girl is cute and hilarious at times. It is a shame that their diet seems to be so bad and their manners could use some improving but that's how they live and we are watching their reality. It's also too bad that the people on Jersey Shore were whoring themselves out every night and binge drinking. That is their reality I guess. It's all just entertainment. It shouldn't be taken so seriously.

First of all, there is no such thing as "Reality TV" It is all well thought out...targeted..scripted...rewritten and massaged for ratings. I am truly amazed that anyone with an ounce of intelligence watches this program.

I don't see how you can dump a friend just for getting arrested for hanging out with a man in a gorilla costume. You are supposed to stick by your friends. People wear costumes to attract attention all the time. The Cluck-U chicken walks around by the road to get customers. Is he arrested for almost causing accidents?


The gorilla at night could be mistaken for a bear. People should get used to encountering bears on the road. One was just hit and killed by a Mercedes near where I live. It could happen to anyone.


I think she is maybe afraid of the hillbilly porn aspect. He said he wanted to get into porn from being on the show. That could reflect badly on her kids, who is dressed up in adult ways.

This poor illiterate family, having babies from the age of 15, and yet for some reason I watch this show. One thing that does come across is that mama June loves all her kids. "Pretty comes in all sizes". You gotta love that.

He's just a pecan in the world of nuts. Everyone on this show is absolutely nauseating.

The Kardashians need to be involved. I know create a show with boo boo kitty F*** and the Kardashians and call it Cash $ Trash, "when crazy meets lazy". Sort of a modern day reality TV version of the odd couple. Only as two families trying to co-exist in the same house / block or as neighbors, etc.

To pay these idiots any money at all it pathetic. You don't have to be uncuth and trashy because you don't live on Rodeo Drive. These folks are disgusting. It's like a remake of a "deliverance movie" only trash being in it this time instead of actors. And just because the ignorant Mom gives the Jr. idiot way too much caffeine, makes her harming the child and it's not funny to look at her nor even listen to her make a fool out of herself. Reality tv is nothing more than crap!

Tell It Like It Is    

In reality the whole darn cast should be banned from appearing in any of the future eposodes. He's crazy? What about the rest of them Redneck dropouts. Pull the plug on this. Nothing entertaining about it at all. Even the little girl is an oversized TarTar.. Get em off the air
