While it looks like all is well for Jay Z and Beyonce (PHEW!), another beloved American couple is on the rocks, threatening to destroy my faith in everlasting love. According to TMZ, Mama June and Sugar Bear from TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” and parents to its star pageant queen Alana, are headed for divorce after June discovered Sugar Bear (real name: so what, who cares) cheating on her and kicked him to the curb. Apparently, June has repeatedly caught Sugar Bear trolling online dating sites, including Plenty O’ Fish where his profile handle is “Georgiafighter31054.” Though June and Sugar Bear never married, they had been together for years and Sugar Bear was a de facto father to June’s other children, Pumpkin, Chubbs and Chickadee. They also had a commitment ceremony last year, which was filmed for their TLC show. TMZ says June is over Sugar Bear’s trifling ways and plans on moving out and taking the kids with her. This is so disappointing. Wasn’t June’s biscuit enough for him? Did Sugar Bear stop seeing the beautimousness of her forklift foot? You know what, it’s Sugar Bear’s loss. June deserves someone who appreciates all the vajiggle jaggle she has to offer. [TMZ] [Photo: Splash News]
It was only a matter of time until Alana Thompson better known as Honey Boo Boo was initiated into the world of drag. It’s a natural fit for a fierce 7-year-old who already has a stage name, wears hairpieces and knows how to read a bitch like a pro. TMZ reports that Uncle Poodle and Mama June took little miss Boo Boo to Hamburger Mary’s, a gay burger joint in Jacksonville, Florida to play Drag Queen bingo (where Mama June made her Bingo face, no doubt). Allegedly, so many Queens wanted autographs and photos that the Thompsons put out a beer pitcher as an impromptu tip jar and promised to donate the funds to a cyber-bullying charity. WERK!

I have something to live for again. “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” is returning this Sunday. If this preview is any indication, the second season should be just as happy-making as the first. Mama June reveals her fear of mayonnaise. (It looks like June and I have something else in common besides our age! I’m also a mayonnaise-o-phobe!) She says she had a babysitter growing up who made her eat mayonnaise sandwiches for breakfast, lunch and dinner. VOM. I feel the visceral pain of that. In the video above, Chubbs tries to school Mama on the virtues of mayonnaise. “It’s just like ketchup, but it’s white.” But Chubbs doesn’t eat it because she’s a vegetarian, to which Pumpkin replies: “Marannaise does not have meat in it. You cannot be a vegetarian because of marannaise … Marannaise is something you put on a sammich.” God, I missed Pumpkin. Meanwhile, Honey Boo Boo scoops marannaise into a giant bowl, inducing a panic attack in June. [Us Weekly]
Alana, Mama June, Sugar Bear, Chickadee, Pumpkin, Chubbs, and Baby Kaitlyn recently sat down for this charming Christmas portrait at Smiley’s Flea Market & Yard Sale in Macon, GA. I’m really digging Alana’s green extensions — very festive! [WOW Report]
We can always count on Barbara Walters to redneckognize greatness. On the short list of her”Most Fascinating People” of 2012 is 7-year-old Alana Thompson, better known as Honey Boo Boo. Walters called her reality show, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” a loving story:
“The relationship between Alana and her mother — that’s the story, the two of them. It’s very touching … Honey Boo Boo is not an obnoxious little girl. She’s sweet and loving with her mother and loving with her sisters… And now Anna has a new baby, and the baby has [three] thumbs — but so what? It’ll make you smile.”
No mention of all the farting and burping, but we’re hoping Babs will get around to that during the sit-down interview, airing December 12 at 9:30 p.m. I suppose I should mention that other guest will include Hillary Clinton and Gabby Douglas.
But, we know who will steal the spotlight. After the jump, some imagined moments from what has the potential to be one of the most amazing Barbara Walters interviews ever. [US Weekly] Keep reading »
