Fans of the now-cancelled hit reality series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo will soon have a chance to own a piece of reality television infamy. According to TMZ, the owner of the three bedroom, 1.5 bathroom Georgia home is unloading the family’s famously humble former residence. The 1,368-square-foot wood house has been empty since Here Comes Honey Boo Boo family matriarch “Mama June” Shannon moved into a larger house earlier this year.
The property owner listed the house at $45,000, just shy of half the amount the owner paid for the house five years ago. Reportedly, Mama June kept the house in good condition, despite four years of filming, which will no doubt allow maximize profits for the owner.
As to why the property jumped in price, TMZ thought that a high-tech security system the family installed in the heyday of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo might be to blame.
In February, Mama June purchased a larger brick home in Hampton, Georgia, for a reported $149,000. The Daily Mail reported on the purchase back in February, complete with pictures of the interior. The home is sparsely furnished and reveals that even though Mama June has moved into a fancier house, she doesn’t intend to blow the money leftover from her reality show days. Large black shelves line the wall of the dinning room, one of them filled with enough containers of laundry detergent and toilet paper to make even the loftiest extreme coupon maven proud.
There may be old habits behind Mama June’s laundry detergent stockpile. It may be prudent planning.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Mama June may be spending time in a courtroom soon. Her oldest daughter, Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell, is suing June and TLC for lost wages and damages. Cardwell claims that June stole from the trust fund set up for her and her daughter Kaitlyn. According to Cardwell, Mama June owes them both $300,000. Reportedly, TLC was included in the lawsuit for failure to make sure that Anna, who was a minor when filming of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo began, was properly paid for her appearances.
Mama June and Anna have reportedly been estranged since news broke that June had contact with an ex-boyfriend who was convicted of molesting Anna when she was a child.
That might not be the only lawsuit in Mama June’s future. Time Magazine, reports that Mama June may sue TLC over the Duggar family sex scandal. Mama June has voiced annoyance with the network over their treatment of the Duggar family while her own family was abandoned and their reality show canceled after her own scandal.
