Honey Boo Boo Mother Defends, Explains Arrest Record

by at . Comments

It's a matter of public record: June Shannon, theā€¦ eccentric mother of six-year old Alana Thompson (aka "Honey Boo Boo") was arrested in 2008 on a count related to a child support issue.

She also faced a theft charge around that time, but both cases were dismissed.

In March, meanwhile, child services looked into the Thompsons after Honey Boo Boo was featured on an episode of Toddlers and Tiaras chugging a mixture of Red Bull and Mountain Dew dubbed by Alana as "Go-Go Juice."

Is that something the family gives its toddler often? No, June tells People: "It was a one time only thing. We don't do it."

What about when a video surfaced of Honey Boo Boo dancing on a bar, another incident investigated by the the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services?

"It was the worst four days of my whole entire life," June says, explaining that the bar appearance was "a meet-and-greet at a concert" and: "After I left, I realized, 'I'm not gonna put Alana in that situation again because it was crazy.'"

Coming from June Shannon, that's really saying something.

Ken1: Your comment is priceless, let alone perfectly said!! Way to go dude!


the views expressed in reality shows do not express my views as an american. it's a shame that the trashiest attention seekers on reality tv are making bank. im also embarassed that the show " 2 and a Half Men " paid Charlie Sheen & Ashton Kutcher so much $. Lol what about Facebook. Getting an education nowadays isnt enough to make an impact. Seems like uneducated freeloaders are the future for my country.


RE 9/11 You have no idea what your government does in your name do you? That was Blow Back. Ask your politicians WHY.


What a hurtin unit. I know that sounds harsh.. but good lord woman, take care of yourself.


Ken, you actually brought up 9-11? You make me sick to my stomach. Ycu are a pathetic excuse for a human being. How sad your life must be. And you talk about how stupid we are and yet you are the one watching countless hours of tv and making idiotic comments. Do you ever read a book or go outside or do you just stare at the tv in a zombie-state? Dont be hating because we live in the LAND OF THE FREE AND THE BRAVE.


True honey poopoo and pizzaface. How can anybody in good conscience watch this show??? I really think you have to be a true, genuine idiot. Think about it. You could be doing pretty much ANYTHING else and your time would be better served. Ask yourself why such pure ignorance, stupidity and mindlessness entertains you. It embarrasses me and I've only seen one two minute clip. Thus show makes all other stupid reality shows look brilliant. There's no hope for ppl that watch this show. And for ppl that let their kids rot their brains with this??? Certainly not even doing the bare minimum as a parent. So shameful.


just sex with her isn't logical.


@honey poopoo-
I agree! We are stupid!! ('we' meaning Americans, not I though). And look at who we have as president!
I am proud to be an American at times, but I am ashamed other times. Americans know about honey boo and kardashian more than they know history or current events. Sad.


And you wonder why other countries view @mericans as dorks..... Seriously how stupid do your TV shows have to get for you people to realize the government wants you to be stupid. So you don't question their policies..... TLC you know what the stands for? The Learning Channel. 10 years ago they had tolerable learning shows, now think about it what are you learning? How to dress you toddler like a Hooker? Honey poopoos mom provided makes more than you now? Seriously... stop making yourselves victims of stupidity, We have reasons We stand by when We say America the land of the hicks. And the home of the TVs boobs...
