Mama June Honey Boo Boo Won't Move Back 'Til Geno's Gone Gone Gone

6/18/2019 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mama June may have moved back into her home, but that doesn't mean her famous daughter is following behind anytime soon ... quite the opposite, actually.

Sources close to Mama June's family tell TMZ ... 13-year-old Alana -- AKA Honey Boo Boo -- adamantly refuses to move back in with her troubled mother, as long as she's got her BF, Geno, hanging off her hip.

We're told Geno being in the picture is a straight-up nonstarter for Alana. She wants MJ to ditch Geno ... and get herself into rehab.

There's grave reason for concern. TMZ broke the story ... Geno was so wasted behind the wheel a few days back, he crashed into Mama June's home and couldn't even walk. He collapsed on the ground and Mama June needed help from a neighbor to drag Geno inside.

HBB begged her mom to straighten out her life a while back, tearfully pointing out that she's currently living with her older sister, Pumpkin ... and not by choice but by necessity. It's pretty obvious she wants to be with her mom, but not in a chaotic, unstable and dangerous environment.

And, there's this ... we're told if push comes to shove and nothing changes, Pumpkin will go to court and fight to gain custody of her little sister.  Our sources say so far, June hasn't expressed interest in getting her daughter back.

Tough situation, for sure.

Honey Boo Boo Living with Big Sis While Mama June Hangs with BF

5/19/2019 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mama June's youngest daughter, 13-year-old Alana -- aka Honey Boo Boo -- has been forced to move in with her sister ... while June lives the casino life with her felon boyfriend.

Sources close to June tell us 19-year-old Pumpkin (gov't name, Lauryn), is now serving as a de facto guardian to Honey Boo Boo. We're told HBB's been living with Pumpkin for several months and helps look after Lauryn's 1-year-old daughter, Ella

Family sources tell us, Alana and June's other daughters understand their mom is going through a tough time ... and want to keep their distance from her and the "drama."

We're told June rarely sees her family these days.

TMZ broke the story ... cops were called to a gas station in Alabama back in March after a domestic dispute between June and her boyfriend Geno Doak. According to the report, Doak threatened to kill June during the argument.

When cops arrived they busted June for possession of crack cocaine.

June was ordered to stay away from Doak by a judge, but she's clearly ignoring that ... shacking up with him at an Alabama casino and routinely hitting the slots.

June's family has urged her to get away from Doak -- as they feel he's a bad influence -- but our sources say their pleas have fallen on deaf ears. 

Mama June Life's a Gamble!!! Allegedly Moves into Casino

5/17/2019 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mama June still has the gambling itch ... so much so, she's allegedly shacking up in an Alabama casino with her boyfriend. 

The reality TV star was spotted again at the Wind Creek casino in Montgomery, and she apparently hit the jackpot, because folks who were there, last Friday, tell us Mama June was cashing out a $1,000 ticket!!!

And, get this ... we're told Mama told a fellow gambler she lives at the casino, and has been staying on the property for the past few months. 

June isn't alone in her casino hotel room though -- we're told her boyfriend, Geno Doak, came down to the casino floor and spoke with her a few times.

This is the 3rd time Mama's been spotted hitting up an Alabama casino since her March arrest for crack cocaine ... and it's the 2nd time we've seen her try her luck at Wind Creek. 

We broke the story ... Mama and Geno are in the market for a new lawyer for their crack cases, after the guy who was defending them quit. 

Gambling. At least that habit's legal.

Mama June Slots of Fun ... Without Boyfriend

4/28/2019 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mama June's still trying her luck, putting legal drama and relationship issues aside and hitting up the slot machines ... again.

The reality TV star was spotted last week at the Wind Creek casino in Montgomery, Alabama, firing off some spins on the slots while chatting with a friend. Folks at the casino tell us they aren't sure if she walked away a winner, but she wasn't gambling this time around with her boyfriend, Geno Doak.

That's interesting, because we broke the story last month ... Mama filed legal docs asking the court to allow Geno to return to her side because she's partially blind and he takes care of her.

Doak was ordered to stay away from June due to their domestic dispute and subsequent arrest for crack cocaine in March. Geno allegedly threatened to kill her, which is why he was also booked for domestic violence and ordered to stay away.

The couple ignored the order, though, by hitting up a casino together a few days later.

Looks like Mama June's back at it ... but flying solo on the slots now.

Mama June Arrested for Crack Cocaine ... Manic Conversation

3/16/2019 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mama June's drug arrest was more serious than we knew, because cops say she admitted the white powder they found was crack cocaine, and she was also caught with a needle and a pipe.

TMZ broke the story ... Mama June and her boyfriend, Geno Doak, were arrested at an Alabama gas station on Wednesday after someone called to report a domestic incident between the two. Cops busted her for felony possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. Doak was also arrested for felony possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia, in addition to domestic violence/harassment. 

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, after arriving at the gas station cops were about to pat down Doak when he told them not to reach inside his pocket and said, "I don't want you to get sticked or nothing." Cops found a needle and then set their sights on Mama June.

She said she was the owner of the vehicle and claimed ownership of everything inside. Cops found a needle on the driver's floorboard. Police then patted June down and found a glass pipe with white residue inside the pocket of her jogging suit. They also found a green pill bottle containing a white controlled substance in the glove compartment. June said the white substance was crack cocaine.

And, check out the audio of a conversation between Mama June and the tow truck driver after she was released -- she was trying to get her car out of impound. June sounds manic as she describes what she says went down.

Honey Boo Boo Boo Hoo Hoo Dancing is Hard

8/12/2018 7:16 AM PDT

Honey Boo Boo is learning a hard lesson ... dancing can really suck.

The 12-year-old dissolved into tears after a rehearsal Saturday at CBS Studios in L.A.  

All is not bad ... she's getting $50,000 just for signing to do the show, and the longer she competes the more money she'll pull in. If she makes it to episode 3 she'll get $10k, episode 5 she'll get another $15k, episode 7 she'll get $20k, episode 8 another $15k, and if she's in the finale she'll get another $20k. 

Judging from the pics, she's not bankin' on more than the minimum.

Honey Boo Boo has the chance to reel in some serious cash if she can survive the grueling competition on "DWTS: Juniors."

Boo Boo -- aka Alana Thompson -- got $50,000 just for signing on to do the show ... and the longer she competes, the more money she will make each episode. We've obtained a copy of her contract, and the rest of the cash breaks down like this ...

- $7,500 per episode for episodes 4 & 5.

- $10,000 per episode for episodes 6 & 7.

If you are bad at math -- that is $130,000 total -- or a lifetime supply of "sketti and butter."

Mame June & Honey Boo Boo Family Affair in Vegas ... Pumpkin Got Married!!!

5/2/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mama June's family has officially expanded by one -- because Honey Boo Boo's big sis just got hitched!

June's 18-year-old daughter, Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon tied the knot with her fiance, Joshua Efird, Monday night in Vegas ... and then the whole crew hit the Strip for a dinner at Buca di Beppo.

We broke the story a couple years ago when Pumpkin got engaged to her then 19-year-old BF. They'd only been dating for 9 months, and she was only 16. Despite the age gap, June approved of the engagement because the kids were taking things slow. 

The plan then was to wait 'til Pumpkin was 18 before getting married ... and that's exactly what they did. They didn't take it slow in the baby department though -- the couple had a daughter in December.

We're told TV cameras were shooting Pumpkin and the wedding party, so it's a good bet the happy event will be on the new season of "Mama June: From Not to Hot."

Congrats!

Honey Boo Boo 'Cash Me Ousside' Girl Is Gonna Beat My Sister's Ass!

2/22/2017 7:39 AM PST

Kylie Jenner is about to start World War III ... between "Cash Me Ousside" girl and Honey Boo Boo's big sister!

HBB and Pumpkin arrived in NYC Tuesday night and a photog asked what they thought about Danielle Bregoli talking major trash on the Kardashians. Pumpkin's a huge fan of the K Krew, and quickly fired back on their behalf ... until her sis shut her down.

It's pretty hysterical -- Honey Boo Boo quickly warned Pumpkin about Cash Me's quick hands.

Still, 17-year-old Pumpkin vs. 13-year-old Danielle? Place your bets.

EXCLUSIVE

Mama June's granddaughter, Kaitlyn Cardwell, is now bandage-free and showing off her solo thumb.

TMZ broke the story ... Kaitlyn's mom, Anna, made the decision last month to have an extra thumb surgically removed from the 4-year-old's right hand. The surgery went off without a hitch, and Kaitlyn's recovery went faster than expected ... so she got to ditch her cast early.

Kaitlyn's extra digit was a big talking point on the show, but we're told it won't be missed. Most importantly, she's feeling great after the surgery.

'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.

Mama June Is That a Skull in My Well?!! Video That Launched Probe

3/14/2016 10:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

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. 

Mama June Getting Gastric Sleeve ... Regular Dieting Too Risky

EXCLUSIVE

Mama 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.
