Aside from the Kardashian family, the modern queens of reality television aren't exactly what you would expect to look like. They include a band of misfits and not-so-mannered individuals who have managed to make their way to the public eye. The Georgia family took over reality cable with their rising-star child, Honey Boo Boo. The southern clan of somewhat close relatives showcased moments of heartfelt laughter and odd southern traditions that managed to penetrate the hearts of many American families.
The real celebrity of the show was Mama June's youngest daughter, Honey Boo Boo. Her early rise to fame sparked with her very candid moments and transparent attitude on her family and herself. At the age of 6, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson became one of the youngest reality television stars in American entertainment history. She made a lot of fellow Americans laugh until their chests couldn't take it as well as her very ill-mannered family.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo first aired on TLC in 2012 and only had a short-lived run on cable until 2014. Since then, Mama June has lost a huge amount of weight where she is barely recognizable and her celebrity daughter is now 14-years-old. The family drama has unraveled more so behind-the-scenes rather than in front of the camera. Mama June is being blacklisted by her family for several illegal actions she has committed since the ending of her reality television era. She was arrested in Alabama for drug possession and a domestic violence case with her most recent boyfriend, Eugene Doak.
One of America's most beloved families is being torn apart by the irresponsible actions of a mother who is severely motivated by money and fame. Mama June's ex-boyfriend was the main reason their popular show got canceled for being a convicted child molester. Mama June then lost 300 pounds after a post-operation of her weight loss surgery. Now, she is feuding with her biological family after she has had more unlawful possession of drugs and has continuously mistreated her three daughters.
It isn't uncommon for multiple cameras faced on someone and a stack of cash given to them results in a change of heart. More common than you think, a lot of reality stars get in their biggest scandals shortly after their claim to fame evaporates out of thin air. Mama June is no exception to this cycle of demise where individuals get consumed by the spotlight. Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson has released an emotional video of her begging Mama June to change in order to salvage their relationship, hopefully in due time she follows suit.
