Mama June Slams TLC For Canceling Her Show, But Keeping The Duggars

Mama June Shannon of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is slamming TLC for the fact that they canceled her show, but they are keeping the Duggars around. Radar Online was able to talk to Mama June and they got her opinion and it is obvious that she is still not happy with TLC for the way that they treated her. Tonight, Mama June and Sugar Bear will be returning to television in the show Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars.


Mama June is not happy that the Duggars have a show coming back to TLC next week. On December 13, a three week special will be airing that shows Jill and Jessa along with the rest of the Duggar family besides Josh. This appears to be a way to get the Duggars back on television after canceling 19 Kids and Counting. Mama June’s show was canceled whenever it was revealed that she was dating her ex, who also happened to be a child molester. June denied that they were more than just friends, but that wasn’t enough to keep their show on the air.

Here is what Mama June had to say about it all. She is not happy about how it is all going down right now.

“TLC does some crazy stuff. Jill and Jessa are going back on TV. Don’t tell me the Duggars aren’t going to be a part of that. They are working the Duggars back on TV in their own secret way.”

There has been some talk that the Duggars could be coming back full-time if this show does well. If the ratings are high, then TLC may bring the show back just under the new name Jill and Jessa: Counting On. Of course, Josh Duggar will not be allowed on the show since he is the reason the show was canceled in the first place.

Mama June Shannon went on to talk about how she feels like TLC took everything away from her family, but is not treating the Duggars the same way.

“TLC took everything from us. They took so much away from the girls. Their bodyguards. They made them leave. The Duggars had security for weeks after they were cancelled. They took out the two people who had been in my kids’ lives for three years. If you were concerned about my kids, then why did you do that?”

The Duggars are not the only family that Mama June slammed. She is also not happy that Kate Plus 8 is returning again and says TLC even talked bad about Kate Gosselin.

“It is what it is. They are bringing Kate Plus 8 and they told me she was the worst person to work for and they were never going to bring her back. I can’t believe TLC is bringing her back.”

Mama June went on to talk about how her girls miss the television show and they would be open to being on reality television once again in the future. On their new show Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, viewers will get to see a lot of truth that was never revealed before. Mama June and Sugar Bear will take lie detector tests and talk about how he cheated on her while they were together.


Yahoo! reported that Mama June shared that her daughters are actually the ones who found out that Sugar Bear was cheating on her. Alana actually found proof of the infidelity, which of course crushed her considering Sugar Bear is her dad.

Do you agree with Mama June that they should have never canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and left the Duggars on television? Sound off in the comments below.
