Mama June Shannon seems to be done with reality TV now. Her show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was canceled and then she was on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars along with Sugar Bear, but they didn’t work out their issues. People shared that Mama June Shannon is now speaking out and admitting that she is okay with the fact that their show was canceled. This happened two years ago, and it has taken her a while to get to the point where Mama June isn’t upset over this show being gone. They did make some great money while it lasted.
Tonight you can catch Mama June Shannon on Oprah: Where Are They Now? where she will talk about how life is for her after the show. June is finally okay with the show being over though, and said, “[there’s] nothing like being at home and knowing that you don’t have to deal with drama and you don’t have to deal with craziness.” Mama June went on to explain that it is nice to have calm and peace now without the cameras around all the time.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was actually canceled because Mama June Shannon was linked to a former child molester. This man was Mark McDaniel, who allegedly molested Mama June’s oldest daughter Anna. Mama June never admitted that she was dating him again, but couldn’t deny the fact that she was seen with him. She also shared about the moment her daughter Alana found out the show was canceled. Alana Thompson said, “I woke up one morning, and I was like, ‘Where’s the crew?’ And my mom was like, ‘We stopped filming the show.’ I was kind of happy, but at the same time, I was sad. So I was kind of sa-happy?”
Oprah: Where Are They Now? shared a preview of this upcoming episode with Mama June Shannon and it reveals what else is going on with the family now. Mama June talks about how they have changed their lifestyle. It is obvious that she has lost weight. June says the family is being more active and walking more. She shared that they don’t eat healthy all of the time, but she doesn’t think that anyone does.
Mama June Shannon has pretty much quit eating fried foods and said that it’s all about portion control. She does indulge every once in a while, but Mama June gave up a few big things. A few years ago, she totally gave up soda, which of course is a lot of calories that she was drinking every single day. She actually went cold turkey and doesn’t drink it at all, but she used to drink three a day.
June even opened up her fridge to show her fans what is in there. She had milk, condiments, and a few other things in there. Mama June did have almond milk as well. She also had stuff for salads and said that Pumpkin loves to have salads. It really does look like this family is getting their act together and taking care of themselves better.
