Eat your heart out, David Hasselhoff!!!
For the first time in her life, Mama June
splashed around in the Atlantic Ocean ... during a family vacation to Tybee Island in Georgia this week.
June posed for some Baywatch-inspired photos ... helped bury Uncle Poodle in the sand ... all while keeping an eye on Honey Boo Boo
, who went crazy with an inner tube.
After the outing, June facebooked about her day in the waves ... writing, "Omg had a blast on tybee today a first time ever at a beach for pumpkin katilyn and alana and my first time going in the ocean."
Just how redneckish was the Mama June
wedding hootenanny?? TMZ has learned the "Honey Boo Boo
" stars didn't just serve up a whole roasted pig (with the head intact) ... they also gave away HUNTING KNIVES to the male guests!
And it only got more gluttonous from there!
Our well-placed wedding spies tell us ... when June Shannon
and Sugar Bear
unofficially tied the knot, guests feasted on pulled pork sandwiches and ribs (ya know, from the dead pig), corn on the cob, macaroni and cheese, baked beans, rolls and sweet tea ... basically your cardiologist's worst nightmare.
And don't forget dessert ... which included a frickin' gourmet candy bar -- i.e. a bar full of candy -- which offered Airheads, Sour Patch Kids, Twizzlers, Swedish Fish ... you get the idea.
As for the gift bags -- women got red candles ... the men got small hunting knives ... and EVERYONE got diabetes!!!
Kidding ... instead they got wine glasses made from mason jars ... and also probably diabetes.
'Honey Boo Boo
' stars Mama June
and Sugar Bear
finally tied the knot in the redneck wedding of the century -- an event worthy of its own theme song. You're welcome June. Yee-haw!!!

is on a show on TLC -- home of shows like "Say Yes to the Dress" and "I Found the Gown" -- but clearly she did not enlist the help of either of them to pick out the dress for her wedding today.
As TMZ first reported, Mama (aka June Shannon) and Sugar Bear (aka Mike Thompson) decided to tie the knot
today in Georgia.
Our sources had said that the people working the wedding were told to dress in either hot pink or camo clothing ... but we didn't think that extended to the participants as well!
Sorry gentlemen, Mama June
is officially off the market ... 'CAUSE SHE'S FINALLY GETTING MARRIED ... TMZ has learned.
In just a few hours, the "Honey Boo Boo
" star is gettin' hitched to her special man friend Sugar Bear ... for a special Cinco de Mayo wedding fiesta!
FYI -- Mama (real name June Shannon) and Sugar Bear (real name Mike Thompson) met in an online chat room 9 years ago ... hit it off, shacked up, popped out a now-famous kid -- Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson
But this ain't gonna be no private small shindig -- according to the wedding invitation, obtained by TMZ, cameras will be rolling during the ceremony ... and will most likely air on TLC.
In fact, wedding guests have been warned -- "No cell phones, cameras, or outside video taping will be allowed."
Fun Fact -- we're told the people working the wedding have been instructed to show up in full redneck attire (either hot pink or camo clothing).
Honey Boo Boo
's mother "Mama" June Shannon
flaunted her sexy new curves -- after recently losing 100 pounds
-- while filming her hugely successful reality TV show in Georgia Thursday.
Now, we ain't sayin' she a golddigger ...
Reality stars Rob Kardashian
and Honey Boo Boo's Mama June
have guts ... to be so public with their weight battles.
Rob -- who has been working out hard trying to lose the 40 lbs. he gained since his breakup with Rita Ora -- showed off his manly curves in a clingy white t-shirt at the Clippers game in L.A. last night , while Mama June proudly showed off her slimmer physique on Wednesday ... after dropping 100 lbs.
from not dieting and not hitting the gym.
Rob better redneckognize that sketti may be the new protein shake.
Honey Boo Boo
's dad is in danger of getting his redneck card pulled -- 'cause TMZ has learned Sugar Bear
's health is forcing him to cut out ... FRIED FOOD!!!
Sugar Bear was released from the hospital on Thursday after checking in last week with severe chest pains. Doctors diagnosed him with pancreatitis.Mama June
tells us Sugar's “feeling pretty good, for the most part” -- and doctors say if he takes his meds he should be able to keep flare-ups under control.
But June says doctors also advised Sugar to lay off fried and spicy foods -- no small feat for anyone living in the deep south.
June says the family plans to eat the same stuff they'd normally eat -- which ain't exactly Lean Cuisine -- and Sugar will just have to sit out on fried chicken nights.
At least sketti ain't fried.
