Mama June

June Shannon, better known as Mama June, is a reality television star. Mama June and her family became one of America’s greatest guilty pleasures on TLC’s “Toddlers and Tiaras,” which chronicled her youngest daughter’s, Alana (Honey Boo Boo), beauty pageant career in 2011. She was known to give her daughter “go-go juice” to hype her up. The network cast the family in a spin-off titled “Here Comes Honey Boo,” which aired for four seasons. It was cancelled when allegations surfaced that Mama June was romantically linked with registered sex offenders Mark McDaniel and Michael Anthony Ford, who is the father of two of her daughters Chubbs and Pumpkin. Her oldest daughter, Anna, alleged she was sexually assaulted by McDaniel when she was 8-years-old. Mama June was born on August 10, 1979 in McIntyre, GA to parents Sandra and Melvin Shannon. She was only two when they divorced. She also has a sister, Joanne, nicknamed Doe Doe. Mama June became a mama at the young age of 15. She’s now a mom of four – Anna (Chickadee), Jessica (Chubbs), Lauryn (Pumpkin), and Alana (Honey Boo Boo) – and grandmother to Anna’s two children – Kaitlyn and Kylee. Anna’s father is David Dunn. Mama June wore a camouflage dress to her May 2013 commitment ceremony to Sugar Bear – who fathered Honey Boo Boo – but the two did not legally wed. After a failed attempt to get their relationship back on track on “Marriage Bootcamp” in early 2016, they split for good and Sugar Bear has since married Jennifer Lamb in January 2017. Mama June got her revenge body that same year, going under the knife and revealing her new size four figure on a WEtv show called “Mama June: From Not to Hot.”
