Honey Boo Boo’s dad, the aptly-nicknamed Sugar Bear, is reportedly at risk of losing his leg after his involvement in an ATV accident several days ago.
Honey Boo Boo and family (of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo of TLC fame) rushed to Sugar Bear’s side after he was involved in a (mud boggin’) ATV accident about a week ago. Sugar Bear is currently laid up in the hospital from his injuries, and, according to the most recent reports, he may lose one of his legs.
Perez reports that Sugar Bear has already had surgery to remove the infected tissue from the injuries he sustained in the ATV accident, and now Honey Boo Boo and family are waiting patiently to find out whether or not he’ll get to keep his leg. Sources say that there’s a pretty good chance that he won’t lose it, but you never know.
If he heals up from the surgery and doesn’t lose his leg, Sugar Bear will make a full recovery and return to work in four weeks.
What with Sugar Bear’s ATV accident injuries, TLC should probably grant the family’s request for a raise heading into season two to help cover his medical bills. The Honey Boo Boo family asked for $10,000 per episode, but they’re most likely to get around $8,000, according to Enstarz. Whatever the Shannon-Thompson clan ends up pulling in, it’s going to at least double their current rate of $4,000 an episode.
Do you think that Sugar Bear will lose his leg? Or maybe he should just be a little more careful on those ATVs?
