Mama June

I Don't Want Money From Sugar Bear

But I Do Need ...

1/25/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mama June Sugar Bear Child SupportMama June knows Sugar Bear is broke as a joke ... so she's willing to cut him a break on child support -- but she tells TMZ she's demanding something more important from him. 

Mama June says she and Suge aren't squabbling over money because she's flush right now, and realizes he's strapped for cash. However, she's putting her foot down when it comes to him spending time with Alana.

She says daddy-daughter time will be tricky once she moves to her new house 90 minutes away from McIntyre, GA ... where SB is living. June says they're working out a plan for regular visitation.  

We're told Sugar's determined to see his daughter -- and June says they've kept things very civil when it comes to Alana.

You can't keep a bear from his honey.

If Sugar Bear Shows Up

Exclusive Details


Mama June might give Sugar Bear one last chance to work things out -- and she might get PAID to do it ... on a reality TV show.

Sources connected to the now ex-couple tell us they've been contacted by 2 different shows -- one of them being "Marriage Boot Camp" on WE tv -- looking to cast them for an upcoming season.

We broke the story ... June kicked Sugar Bear out of their home last week ... claiming she found out he was two-timing her with several women he'd met online. We're told the marital strife is the real deal -- not created for TV -- but June intends to follow through and meet 'Boot Camp' producers.

She's just not sure Suge will do the same.

As for their relationship right now -- watch the video. June brags about torching a bunch of Sugar Bear's stuff ... if that tells you anything.

Signs First Promotional Deal

I'm Making LiLo Money!

EXCLUSIVE

Chickadee Sponsorship DealChickadee can stop hawking snake oil ... the former reality star has landed a legit money-making deal sorta -- getting paid to tweet like other big celebs.  

We've learned Anna Cardwell signed a deal with 310 Shakes to send out promotional tweets for its product ... similar to deals brokered for Lindsay Lohan, JWoww and Kyle Richards

We're told Lindsay is paid around 5K to tweet for the company ... but it's unclear how much scratch Chickadee is getting.

Calls to Anna's rep went unreturned.

Sugar Bear

This Is How I Dew ...

The Single Life

EXCLUSIVE

0117-sugar-bear-kicked-out-TMZ-01Sugar Bear was drinking heavily the night Mama June broke up with him ... but he wasn't dipping into the hard stuff -- the reality star was just hitting the Dew.

Sources connected to Suge tell us he spent the night at a relative's house on Wednesday after MJ kicked him to the curb. Then he drowned his sorrows in Mountain Dew and chili.

We're told S.B. vented to his family about his frustrations with June ... including his belief that she is still talking to Mark McDaniel. He also argued with his ex on the phone for hours following the meal.

An earful of June and a bellyful of chili -- not enough antacid in the world. 

The next day Sugar Bear rented a new double wide with his bro.

Kicks Sugar Bear Out

Claims He's a No Good Cheater

EXCLUSIVE

Mama June Kicks Out Sugar Bear

Mama June
 has kicked Sugar Bear to the curb again ... and it's the same old story -- she thinks he's just too horny.

June tells TMZ she told him to leave after finding out he's continued engaging in online romances. She says Sugar Bear insists it's harmless ... he just does it for the thrill, but she's not buyin' it.

Sugar Bear and June have been trying to rekindle their relationship after she promised to stop seeing convicted child molester, Mark McDaniel.

As for Sugar Bear ... we're told he's sick of June's accusations, and he's done with her.

And June's not the only one that recently made a big home purchase ... we're told SB quietly rented a 4-bed 2-bath double wide with his brother ... so he can stay close to Honey Boo Boo.

Mama June

I Still Got Money to Burn ...

On a New House!

1/16/2015 10:46 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mama June New Home
Mama June may be out of a job but she just scored a sweet new house.

The "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" gravy train may have come to an abrupt halt ...  but that didn't keeping June from splurging on new digs ... a 3,225 sq. ft, 4 bedroom home in Georgia. And get this (don't read if you're from CA or NY -- it's too painful) ... she paid $149K.

The house may look familiar ... it's the same one she scoped out with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel last September, with Honey Boo Boo in tow.

That could torpedo the truce between Chickadee and June, but she might get over it once she sees the pool.

Uncle Poodle ...

I Almost Died And

My Family Didn't Give A DAMN!!

EXCLUSIVE

Uncle Poodle Hospitalized
Uncle Poodle is lucky to be alive after a New Year's Day health scare ... and no one cared.

Poodle tells TMZ he woke up with a dangerously elevated heart rate ... it felt like his heart was pounding out of his chest.   

Docs put him under and used paddles to shock his heart back into rhythm.   

The "Honey Boo Boo" clan never showed up ... not a single one of them. Poodle's bro, Sugar Bear, texted him a few times but otherwise it was radio silence. Not even a damn flower.  

Poodle says he specifically texted Mama June but she clearly was not on his "get well soon" list.  

Here's the bigger problem. Poodle was laid up in a hospital bed for a week, and the $150K bill is all his ... no health insurance. 

A spinoff would come in handy right about now.

EXCLUSIVE

Chickadee Reality Show
Anna "Chickadee" Cardwell wants to pick up where her little sis left off, because we've learned she's shopping her very own reality show. 

Chickadee tells us she's hired an agent who's pitching a family-centric show, but not Mama June's family. Chickadee wants the show to revolve around her small brood -- her, her hubby and their kid.

They think they can create compelling TV around their day-to-day life, which includes hunting, fishing and figuring out how two 20-year-olds can survive in a cold, cruel world.

As for June ... Chickadee says her mama can make occasional appearances along with the rest of the family, but they won't steer the ship.  

And Chickadee says Mark McDaniel -- the man who sexually assaulted her when he was June's boyfriend -- will be fair game.

No bites yet, but there have been worse ideas ...

I Put Mama June On Notice About

Her Molester Ex-BF

EXCLUSIVE

0101-chickadee-june-01

Mama June may be telling everyone her oldest daughter is putting their issues behind them -- but Chickadee says all is not forgiven just yet ... when it comes to June's relationship with Mark McDaniel

Anna 'Chickadee' Cardwell tells TMZ she and Mama J are trying to get back on track after meeting last week. She says they've been texting and talking on the phone regularly. 

TMZ broke the story ... Anna cut off all ties when she found out June was back with McDaniel -- who was convicted of molesting Chickadee when she was 8. 

Anna says June apologized for dating McDaniel -- and while her mom insists the creep's totally out of the picture ... Anna remains hesitant. She says she's warned June the forgiveness train will be completely derailed if Mark comes around again.

For her part ... June's told us she's fine with that.

Reunites With Chickadee

But Not For Free

EXCLUSIVE

1227-june-shannon-anna-chickadee-shannon-check-TMZ_01Mama June and Chickadee's feud over money and Mark McDaniel is over after they smoked the peace pipe this weekend -- a very expensive peace pipe. 

June tells TMZ ... she and her daughter Anna "Chickadee" Cardwell started squashing their beef once June forked over a check for $15,400 -- the remaining cash from Anna's trust fund. 

1227-anna-chickadee-shannon-check-TMZ_02
Anna had accused June of swiping money from the account, but June says it was only dwindling because she was using it to pay Chickadee's expenses -- mobile phone bill, spending money, and rent (she has her own place). 

June basically did Anna a solid by cashing out the trust fund -- which Anna couldn't touch yet because she's only 20.

As for McDaniel -- June's ex-bf convicted of molesting Chickadee -- June told her daughter and the whole family she hasn't seen him since September, and plans to keep it that way.  

June tells us she knows they won't be able to completely patch things up overnight -- but says she video chats with Chickadee twice a day, and they've agreed to "move on." One positive sign -- Chickadee brought her daughter Kaitlyn to hang with June -- which she previously refused to do.

Mama June & Sugar Bear

Reunited for Massive

Soda Run at Walmart

EXCLUSIVE

1224-honey-boo-boo-walmart-TMZ-02Mama June and Sugar Bear have discovered the key to their reconciliation -- a crazy amount of soda.

The estranged couple hit up their local Walmart on Tuesday, where they filled up an entire shopping cart with Mountain Dew and Pepsi. Honey Boo Boo's love of Mountain Dew is rather legendary.

MJ and SB have been on the rocks for some time, but we're told they are still living together and are working on their relationship. 

And if they can't fix it, well ... at least they have all that soda.

Mama June

Forget Santa ...

I'll Save Christmas!

12/16/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mama June Donates MoneyChristmas in the town of McIntyre, GA was almost cancelled, but Mama June ponied up out of her own pocket to save it.

The Shannon family has hosted a toy drive for the last 5 years ... with great success. Sometimes 500 people a night would show up at their well-decorated home, where adults deposited toys and the kids would sit on Santa's -- AKA Sugar Bear's -- lap.

But the fallout from the collapse of the Honey Boo Boo empire has taken its toll ... only a few hundred people showed up so far, and it looked like some kids would get nothing next week.

So Mama June says she personally forked over $2,000 for toys and says she'll ante up more if need be. She tells us, "No matter if one or one hundred came out, I was going to make sure the kids here in the county will wake up to something at Christmas."

So she's been naughty and nice.
