Mama June Shannon rose to fame as the stage mother of Alana Thompson AKA Honey Boo Boo on the show Todders & Tiaras. After TLC noticed the massive amount of interest in these rednecks, they gave the family their very own show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
Shannon messed everything up when she left Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson and began cavorting with her ex-boyfriend and convicted child molester Mark McDaniel. She reportedly used her daughter’s (his victim) money in order to find him a place to say and get him a car. After the scandal hit the internet, she was found flat on her butt without a reality show. The kicker was that the show’s fifth season was already filmed but had to be canned because the network didn’t want any backlash for supporting this monster.
Now that she is out of work as a reality TV personality, Mama June Shannon is seeking out other televised opportunities. Take The Biggest Loser, for instance. Shannon was seen working her butt off in the park with a trainer in order to prepare herself for the weight loss associated with being on a show such as this one.
She is said to be looking for one hundred pounds of weight loss and then perhaps she will look for other ways to exploit herself. It’s a very distinct possibility that if Shannon is able to commit to workouts and weight loss, that a workout DVD could be in the pipeline in the future. I guess some people need the inspiration and seeing an obese person being able to lose the weight may inspire them to want to do the same. Still, we know that Shannon would be doing all of it for the almighty dollar.
Mama June Shannon is almost as bad as Kris Jenner and Kate Gosselin. Almost.
