Between Duck Dynasty, Hoarders and Teen Mom, there are plenty of shows on TV that embrace the charm and schadenfreude of America’s greatest white trash families, but none of them has held a candle to the Shannon/Thompson family of TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. The titular child star rose to fame thanks to the exploitative and horrifying Toddlers & Tiaras, but her family’s “Fuck it” attitude and general redneckishness has made the entire caloric clan prominent, including June Shannon, AKA “Mama”.
While Madonna was busy earning her merit vadge in pretending to care at the GLAAD Awards this past weekend, June was also in attendance, apparently showing off her new body. Maybe it was standing behind her old body.
Wearing a fashionable long black wrap dress, the 33-year-old mom of four posed and pouted winsomely on the red carpet like a pro. Her hair, held back by a sparkly headband, was styled into soft curls and her lips were painted a bright pink.
The star, who has lost 102 pounds since filming for the show began two years ago, was in town because her show was one of the reality programs nominated for a positive portrayal of the LGBT community. (US Weekly)
Honey Boo Boo’s uncle is gay, which isn’t very surprising if you imagine that he walked in on his brother having sex with June. But good for her for losing that much weight and being unafraid to flaunt it at her age.
Wait, she’s only 33? Here’s to your next 102 pounds, June.
