Mama June: See Her Amazing Transformation Through the Years!

Can you believe that it's been six years since we were first introduced to Mama June and her wild and wacky family?

It's true — all the way back in 2012, we saw a little girl called Honey Boo Boo on TLC's Toddlers and Tiaras. We met her family, including her mother, June, known for couponing and for her infamous "go-go juice."

(Just in case you missed this fascinating origin story, "go-go juice" is a mixture of Red Bull and Mountain Dew that June gave her kid to keep her energy up during beauty pageants.)

They were so fascinating that they landed their own reality show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, shortly after their Toddlers and Tiaras episode premiered.

The show lasted for four seasons until it was abruptly canceled in 2014 after June reportedly began dating a convicted child molester.

After that, the family left the spotlight for a bit, but not for too long — June and her partner, Sugar Bear, did a stint on Marriage Boot Camp.

And then 2017 brought us Mama June: From Not to Hot, in which she lost a ridiculous amount of weight and shrunk down to a size 4.

Even though she achieved the apparent goal of getting hot in that first season, the show was renewed, and in the second season we saw numerous health issues as well as the pregnancy of her daughter Pumpkin.

That's right, June became a grandmother one more time, and one more of her kids became a teen mom, just like their mama before them.

It's a lot to take in, right?

So let's just sit back, relax, and see Mama June go through all those changes right before our eyes …

‘Amazing Race’ Stars Cody and Jessica Engaged After Runyon Canyon Proposal

Jackson Roloff Has Something Amazing to Show Off

Attention, Little People, Big World fans:

Tori Roloff has something to say about her son.

Actually, first Tori Roloff has something to show on her son.

And here it is:

Did you catch it? Do you see it?

We’re not talking about Jackson’s adorable robe, which includes two ears atop the boy’s head and which is positively precious.

No, right now, we’re talking about two things down below those pretend ears, two things Jackson seems very excited to now have in his mouth…

… a pair of teeth!

You see them now, right?

Can you believe Tori and Zach’s first child is already old enough to have his own chompers?!?

In her affiliated caption for the image above, Tori doesn’t really mention her son’s teeth.

But she does gush (and gush and gush!) over her affection for Jackson, writing:

There are not enough hours in the day. Not because I didn’t get to the dishes or finish the laundry. But because there aren’t enough hours in the day to hang with this guy.

I actually miss him when he goes to bed and literally can’t wait for him to wake up. I love you so much you toothy grin mister mister.

So very sweet.

And we’re sure many new moms out there can relate.

Tori and Zach welcomed Jackson into the world on May 10, 2017.

Just a few days ago, Tori updated Instagram followers in regard to where Jackson is at the age of eight months.

She says he can now sit up for about 20 seconds at a time… that he actually has four teeth total… and that he’s crawling around!

Okay, not exactly, Tori says: Jackson is “scooting.” But still. He’s moving around a bit on his own!

It’s a very exciting time for this couple, only exacerbated by the fact that Tori is also opening up her own Etsy shop.

That’s a business decision, of course.

Many Little People, Big World viewers are wondering about something personal when it comes to Tori – and that something is this:

Could she be pregnant again?!?

This speculation was fueled solely by Tori referencing kids (plural, as opposed to kid) in a recent Instagram caption.

What was likely a harmless typo, or merely a harmless word choice, sparked chatter around social media about the status of Tori’s womb.

As far as we know, it is empty at the moment.

We don’t think a sibling is on the way any time in the next few months for Jackson.

He already has a cousin with whom he can play, in the former of Audrey and Jeremy Roloff’s daughter, Ember Jean.

And he most definitely has two very loving parents at home, along with two very loving grandparents living not too far away.

Oh, and did we mention that he is just SO GOSH DARN CUTE!!!!

See what we mean below:


Mackenzie Standifer Confirms Ryan Edwards Wedding: He’s Doing Amazing!

Looks like wedding bells will indeed be ringing this weekend for one of the Teen Mom franchise’s most discussed couples – again. 

Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Edwards’ wedding will take place in the duo’s native Chattanooga, Tenn., and this time, not in a parking lot.

If you watch Teen Mom OG online, you surely recall that Ryan and Mackenzie rushed to become husband and wife on the season finale.

How could you possibly forget if you saw that?

The couple tied the knot with only Ryan’s parents and a camera crew present, which would’ve been weird enough, but wasn’t the half of it.

Ryan drove high to the ceremony – so much so that he was nodding off at the wheel – leading outraged fans to slam Standifer and MTV.

How could she (or they) let him drive in that state? What does that tell us about his mindset (or lack thereof) at the time he said “I do”?

Edwards went to rehab soon after, but instead of quelling doubts about the future, a new scandal rocked the newlyweds upon his release.

Rumors of Ryan sending d–k pics and looking to hook up with random girls on Tinder turned out to be true, with Mackenzie even intervening.

Not only that, he reportedly told members of the MTV show’s crew that he was filing for divorce, and he didn’t just say this in passing.

Yet here we are at this exciting, surprising juncture.

Maci Bookout’s ex-boyfriend and his spouse will hold their “original, intended” wedding ceremony this weekend, and couldn’t be happier.

“It’s been in the works since the day we got engaged,” Mackenzie said, speaking to E! News. “It was never just decided upon.”

“We knew from day one this was going to be it.”

Mackenzie added that unlike the parking lot finale, this wedding will be “in this little cathedral-type church and it’s just absolutely beautiful.”

Standifer told the site that the event is a blend of their styles:

“We went for a rustic-chic theme so there are elements that are super formal and elements that are just very laid-back. But it’s gorgeous.”

“There’s a reception afterwards that’s in this old warehouse-type space that’s been redone. The ceremony is me: super urban, super chic.”

“The reception is Ryan, where it’s rustic. It’s a great mix.”

MTV cameras will be rolling when the pair exchange vows this time, too, and Mackenzie believes Maci Bookout herself will be attending.

“She invited us to her wedding. Everything is just kind of at a resting place right now. It’s about our boys. This is a day about us, yes.

“But it’s also about us becoming a family.”

Maci attending the event would be a great show of support and solidarity with a guy who hasn’t exactly made her life easy over the years.

Bookout, who has three younger kids with husband Taylor McKinney, has often feuded with Ryan and his family over Bentley’s care.

Still, to hear Standifer tell it, they’re all on the same page, and she’s looking at Wedding #2 as a means of cementing their family bond.

“The boys have no idea that we’re already married,” Standifer said, adding of Ryan and Maci’s son, “Bentley doesn’t even know that.”

“So you know, for them, this is a huge day.”

Mackenzie, who is also the mother of young son, said it’s all about the kids, and “if that makes them happy, then that’s what we’ll do.”

Standifer’s son Hudson (top photo above) and Bentley’s feelings aside, fans are understandably wondering how Ryan is feeling lately.

Leading up to the big day, Mackenzie says that despite their ups and downs, she can’t help but gush over the special man in her life. 

“He’s doing amazing. I’m really truly impressed,” she said of how far he’s come since spring. “I’m so proud of him and he is trying so hard. 

“I mean, I can’t imagine what that’s like,” she added, referring to all that Edwards has gone through and struggled with, but “I’m so proud.”

This America’s Got Talent Singer is Deaf. And Amazing.

No water was thrown on the set of America's Got Talent on Tuesday night.

But jaws were definitely dropped.

About six weeks after Mandy Harvey first took the stage on this NBC reality show, the deaf singer performed in the quarterfinals, hoping to take yet another step closer to winning it all.

(Yes, Harvey really is deaf.)

The aspiring singer-songwriter lost her hearing at the age of 18 due to a connective tissue disorder, but she refuses to let this condition get in the way of her dreams.

"When I lost my hearing, music died. I lost my way of communicating. And my parents were the ones who encouraged me to find music again," Harvey said in a pre-recorded package before her live performance at the Dolby Theater this week.

"I was told for such a long time that you had to have hearing to enjoy music.

"But I've found that music was meant to be felt. Feeling everything move – feeling the song through the floor, feeling my voice."

Harvey earned a Golden Buzzer for her debut audition, along with the admiration of viewers everywhere.

Standing by herself with nothing but her ukulele in this case, the 29-year-old poured her heart with a lovely, original ballad titled "Mara's Song," which she wrote for her close friend's wedding.

There is so much I could say to you – so much I want to say," Simon Cowell said in response.

"But your music, and you, says it all. All I'm gonna say is you are and you will make a difference. That was stunning."

Added Heidi Klum:

"There was no backing track, there was no production around it. It was just you, your beautiful voice, your ukulele, and it was very powerful."

This really was a unique performance…

… but a unique individual.

Watch it for yourself – and prepare to stand up and clap immediately afterward.
