Is this the end of Honey Boo Boo? Looks like it.
Sorry, folks, no more Honey Boo Boo. After three productive and educational (*cough cough*) years on TV, TLC has cancelled the polarizing series, after co-star “Mama June” Shannon reportedly started dating a convicted child molester. TMZ reported earlier this week that Mama June ha started seeing Mark McDaniel, who was convicted in 2004 of aggravated child molestation of an 8 year old.
Members of the Shannon clan denied the rumor after it was made public – according to their statement, the pair had not dated in over 10 years, and Shannon was “all about the kids” after her separation from Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson.
Then, on Thursday, TLC released the following statement to Entertainment Weekly: “TLC has canceled the series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and ended all activities around the series, effective immediately. Supporting the health and welfare of these remarkable children is our only priority.TLC is faithfully committed to the children’s ongoing comfort and well-being.”
Sorry guys - we may have seen the last of Honey Boo Boo.
The statement continues: “TLC is not currently in production on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. We are very concerned about this new information and are reassessing the future of the series.”
