Love them or hate them, Honey Boo Boo and her extended family are definitely some of the most interesting people on TV.
We followed the reality star’s life as a beauty pageant contestant on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, and she’s returned to TV on Mama June: Not to Hot. The series explores Mama June’s life after her impressive weight loss, but the show also features some family drama.
While Mama June, her ex-husband Sugar Bear, and his second wife Jennifer Lamb are all featured on the new show, they’re not exactly one big happy family.
In fact, viewers were stunned by the most recent episode, when Lamb dropped a bombshell on the family. During a legal meeting to plan Sugar Bear’s visitation schedule, his lawyer asked if Honey Boo Boo (whose real name is Alana Thompson) had ever taken a DNA test.
Lamb suggested it wouldn’t be a bad idea for the child star to take a paternity test.
“If it turns out that Alana is not his, June Shannon will be out of my life forever,” Lamb said on the show. “And I sure ain’t paying child support for a kid that’s not Mike’s.”
It sounds ridiculous at first, but Mama June’s own family added fuel to the fire later in the episode.
