'Honey Boo Boo' Star My Extra Thumb Went Thump

10/23/2016 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1021-mama-june-granddaughter-tmz'Honey Boo Boo' star Kaitlyn Cardwell is healthy and recovering after surgery to remove an extra thumb.

Kaitlyn -- Mama June's 4-year-old granddaughter -- was born while the show was still on-air ... and her extra digit became a big topic of conversation. Kaitlyn's mom, Anna, tells us she made the decision to have the thumb removed to thwart medical issues and bullying.

Kaitlyn will wear a cast for 6 weeks ... but it's definitely worth it.

It could have an adverse effect on her cheese ball intake ... just ask Honey Boo Boo.

3/14/2016 10:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cops have NO bones about it -- but TMZ just obtained the video that had construction workers thinking there was a skeleton in Mama June's well.

June bought the GA home as an investment, but as we reported ... workers with G & J Home Improvement thought they'd stumbled upon something fishy when they ripped up her bathroom floor.

This is the video they shot when they lowered a smartphone into the well. We'll say this -- it DOES look like there's something down there. Could be a rock, could be ... well, judge for yourself.

But now cops have already decided ... no skull.

3/14/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0311-mama-june-surgery-fun-art-02Mama June's going under the knife to find a safer weight loss solution ... after falling unconscious multiple times.  

We're told June is set to go in for gastric sleeve surgery later this month, and hopes to lose at least 80 more pounds. She's been on a crusade to slim down so she'd be healthy enough for the surgery. She's already dropped 90 lbs.

We're told "sleeve specialist" Dr. Michael Feiz in Beverly Hills will perform the operation. 

TMZ broke the story ... June was hospitalized two weeks ago after collapsing. Although doctors couldn't pin down the problem, we're told they suspect she was pushing her dieting too far.

0302_mama_june_tmzMama June was just rushed to the hospital after collapsing at her home in Georgia Wednesday... TMZ has learned.

We're told June had been complaining about not feeling well, and had thrown up several times throughout the day. She passed out right after walking down the stairs in her house. She regained consciousness, but then had multiple fainting spells ... so her daughter, Pumpkin drove her to the hospital.

We're told June has been pushing it with her diet lately, and after passing out she admitted she hadn't eaten much today.

June's still in the hospital. We're told doctors plan on giving her a CT scan and taking blood work.


Mama June Pumpkin Is Engaged!!!

1/12/2016 6:41 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0111_Pumpkin-is-EngagedMama June is adding a son-in-law to her brood.

June tells us her 16-year-old daughter Pumpkin is engaged to her boyfriend of 9 months, Joshua Efird. He popped the question 2 days before Christmas, complete with a ring, during dinner at a seafood restaurant.

June says she approves of 19-year-old Joshua, mostly because he's cool with taking things slow ... as in Ciara-Russell Wilson slow. Yes, the teenagers say they're saving themselves for marriage.

We know what you're thinking, but they don't HAVE to wait. Age of consent is 16 in GA. Still, they don't plan on getting hitched until Pumpkin's 18.

We'd say they grow up so fast, but ...

Mama June Cancel the Duggars 'Wrong is Wrong'

6/14/2015 7:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mama June thinks the Duggars are getting a pass they don't deserve, and the ax should have fallen hard on them  ... just like what happened to "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."

June was with Sugar Bear at LAX when our photog also asked about the lawsuit her daughter Anna filed against her, but this time June seems to be laying the blame on Anna, calling her a spendthrift.

June said last week Anna was just a pawn for the boyfriend of June's mom and it was all a transparent money grab.

Mama June My 'Money Hungry Bitch' Mom Is Behind Anna's Lawsuit

6/11/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Mama June's daughter Anna/Chickadee was bullied into suing her mother -- bullied by her grandmother and her grandmother's BF -- and Mama June says she has text messages to prove it.

TMZ broke the story ... Anna is suing Mama June, claiming June kept all the 'Honey Boo Boo' money that should have been distributed to the family. Both Anna and her daughter Kaitlyn are suing.

But TMZ has learned June will file legal docs Thursday, claiming her mother, Sandra Hale, is behind the lawsuit and Anna never wanted to file it nor does she believe what's being alleged.  

We know June has text messages from Anna to a family member, one of which says, "I did not hire the lawyer. My grandma did ... I know I can't get her money and that's what I tried to tell him [Sandra's boyfriend]."  

What's more, June has another text from Anna which reads, "I never really talked to [the lawyer] cause my grandma boyfriend talked the whole time and then kicked me out so he could talk to the guy. So Idk what was said behind closed door." 

We got Mama June at LAX a few months ago, and she clearly knew who was fueling the family feud, calling her mom "a money hungry bitch."

Mama June I Don't Owe Anna a Dime ... TLC Paid Her Direct

6/10/2015 11:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0610-mama-june-chickadee-tmz-instagramMama June is crafting a "direct deposit defense" against her daughter Anna's claims MJ made off with thousands of TLC dollars from the family's "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" days. 

Mama June tells TMZ it's "ridiculous" to think she owes Chickadee any money ... because she says the network deposited Anna's money directly into her accounts.

MJ says their most recent contract, drawn up in September 2012, specifically stated that one-third of the family's $22,500/episode paycheck was to be divided up equally among the kids and paid to them individually -- meaning Mama June never saw a cent of it.

Mama June claims she gave Anna a $15,400 check last December ... her cut of a lump sum the family was paid when their show was cancelled.

In fact, Mama June says she even helped Anna by paying her cellphone bill and other household expenses.
