Ever since the Hartley thread drew comparisons to freakshow TLC reality stars like the Matriarch of the "Honey Boo Boo" family, originally notable for being showcased on the show Toddlers & Tiaras with her daughter, I've been thinking about giving her a thread here too.
And she without a doubt fits in with the goal of the Beauty Parlour board. For one, she's heavily involved with fashion, make-up, beauty industry, and pageantry related topics. She's incredibly fucking trashy, is constantly embroiled in drama, and her families entire life has been documented in excruciating detail.
June Shannon was born on August 10th, 1979; making her 37 years old. Her parents divorced when she was the age of 2, and by age 15 she pumped out the first of her four children. She became a grandmother after her oldest daughter had a kid at age 18.
As mentioned above, the family was first brought to the world's attention via reality TV show Toddlers & Tiaras, as well as the "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" spin-off. Honey Boo Boo is a reference to Shannon's youngest daughter, Alana 'Honey Boo Boo' Thompson. During the shows 2nd season, Shannon got "married" to Alana's father, Mike Thompson, known by the nickname Sugar Bear.
Before that she had dated not just one, but two different sex offenders, one of which she dated twice. His name was Mark McDaniel, who sexually assaulted one of Shannon's other daughters, Anna Cardwell. This actually got the show pulled from TLC in 2014, according to the wikipedia page on the program. The other of which is Michael Anthony Ford, the father of 2 of her daughters.
Mama June also drained money our of Anna and her own's joint bank account, leading Anna to accuse her of stealing, and add that on top of being assault by a sexual predator, led the two to become estranged.
Being an expert in not taking any responsibility for anything she does, June blames her mother on Anna hating her, and claims her mom (ironically) is just a "Money Hungry Bitch"
Her most recent spot in the limelight was earned after getting put on a new reality show showing off her recent weight loss. It's called "Mama June: From Not to Hot"
And if any of y'all ladies were wondering, Mama is bisexual
She currently lives with "Pumpkin" and Honey Boo Boo, with the other two daughtershaving fled the coup.
