June Shannon: I’m Going BLIND!

Mama June only just got hot. We hope that she spent plenty of time admiring her new shape in the mirror, because she might never again see her reflection.

In the clip below, June Shannon's boyfriend walks into the room to ask June what's wrong.

It turns out that she's going blind.

June Shannon is 38 years old. That's awfully young to be losing one's eyesight.

Then again, she's also a grandmother — Lauryn Shannon welcomed her baby girl last December.

As you'll see in the video below, last week, June Shannon calls for her boyfriend.

She's laying in bed, looking distrought … but doesn't seem to be looking at anyone or anything.

June's boyfriend, a man named Geno Doak, comes in to help.

He looks concerned … but he's also asking June if she's messing with him. He is, after all, fairly new to reality television.

(There's really no way of knowing how much is planned, but while the actually blindness issues surely weren't planned, it's likely that this conversation was — but that doesn't mean that it was rehearsed)

June says that she's losing vision in her one good eye — because her eyesight has been deteriorating for years.

She describes a "black circle" obscuring what she sees. That's, um, alarming.

"What if I lose sight in my good eye?" June openly worries. "I went totally blind in my right eye four years ago!"

Geno helps June get up from her bed.

(Her room, though sparsely decorated and with a pretty boring carpet, has a gorgeously bold wall painting choice — we haven't really mentioned this before, but June Shannon's house has some great paint choices on the interior).

June calls for Alana (that's Honey Boo Boo herself, folks) and the two of them head to the doctor.

This is absolutely the right choice. There can be a number of causes for sudden blindness or near-blindness, and none of them are good.

As we said, loss of vision can have a number of causes.

(Non-fun fact: I once lost my vision for a matter of minutes — did you know that some people lose their vision after riding roller coasters? It's called a "grey out." I didn't know that either until it happened to me, and I didn't know the term until years later)

In June's case, the doctor diagnosed her with a detached retina.

If your first thought was that Mama June was a victim of some sort of violence (she's opened up in the past, accusing Sugar Bear of having beaten her and her daughters), know that there can be a number of causes.

One of the potential causes is good ol' inflammation. Another is neovascularization (the natural growth of new blood vessels).

In any case, the solution is eye surgery, which was promptly ordered for Mama June.

From not to hot june gets up

June Shannon is concerned over the idea of being disabled.

"I don’t want to lose my independency," she says, unintentionally lightening the mood.

A preview for the next episode shows Mama June Shannon wearing a white eye patch, complete with googly eyes.

Technically, Mama June only has a 50% chance of restored vision after she recovers from surgery.

Of course, we can all infer that this story has a happy ending, since Mama June flaunted her weight loss at a premiere just last month and didn't seem to have any trouble while she was doing it.

Still, this must have been a terrifying experience for her.

Sugar Bear to June Shannon: “You Are a Dumb B-tch!”

There will be no more Mr. Nice Guy for Sugar Bear on this week's episode of Mama June: From Not to Hot.

Instead, there will be at least one instance of Mr. I-Can't-Believe-You're-Doing-This-And-You-Totally-Suck-For-It Guy.

In the following clip from this surprise WEtv hit, Sugar Bear tries to call his ex-wife because he says it's his day to at least talk to daughter Alana.

But June is nowhere to be found. The Bear simply gets her voicemail.

Angry that he's getting the run-around on a previously-agreed-upon arrangement, Sugar goes off on Shannon, screaming about how unfair it is for her to keep his child from her father.

“I hate it when you act like a stupid type of women that you are,” yells Sugar Bear, adding:

“I don’t know what the hell you are trying to pull – I knew I couldn’t trust you to keep up your end of the deal, and I know you have a man living in that house!”

Indeed, she actually, somehow does.

Shannon isn't just dating some dude named Geno Doak, but she may very well be living with him, meaning Geno gets to spend a lot more time with Alana than Sugar Bear does.

This fact did not sit well with Sugar Bear's wife on last week's installment of this scripted reality show…

… and it won't sit well with Sugar himself this Friday night, either.

“You’re not gonna get away with this… this is the last time you’re gonna f-ckin’ mess with me! You’re a dumb bitch, June," Sugar Bear says in the clip featured here, concluding loudly:

F-ck you!

We also get glimpses in this video of the family's cat and dog.

Later on, speaking directly to the camera, Sugar says the following:

"I knew June was going to try and keep me away from Alana … she’s trying to sabotage our relationship – it ain’t gonna fly with me, it ain’t gonna happen!”

Mama June and Sugar Bear broke up in 2016 after they failed to salvage their romance on a season of Marriage Boot Camp.

Since then, Shannon has scarcely allowed Sugar Bear see his daughter, alleging her daughter’s suffered “emotional abuse” as a result of her dad and adding that the two can't have a relationship until he “gets help."

Celebrity Big Brother Recap: Did Shannon Elizabeth Get Blindsided?

There was a lot at stake for the houseguests on the latest episode of Celebrity Big Brother. 

When the episode got underway, Omarosa and Keshia were on the block and wondering which one of them would be exiting the house. 

While it seemed like one of those two houseguests were leaving, Ross, Brandi, Ariadna, and Marissa floated the idea of evicting Shannon via the back door. 

This was fueled by paranoia because everyone was growing concerned that Shannon was getting closer and closer to working with James. 

Not helping matters was Omarosa, who was vocal to Ross about not being mad that he threw her up on the block. 

Omarosa knows how to manipulate situations, and that’s why she’s such a big threat. She and Shannon are about as scary as each other. 

The odd thing about all of it was that Marissa was getting excited about the prospect of even taking Shannon out. They knew each other before the game, but they don’t seem actually to like each other. 

“I really Rthought that we would make it to the end together,” Marissa said of Shannon. “I can’t believe I’m actually saying this, but I want to backdoor Shannon.”

The veto competition played out live, and Marissa slid into victory. Just when we thought that Shannon might be getting put on the block, everything changed. 

Keshia was missing her child and decided the game was too much for her to deal with. She made an emotional plea to Marissa to keep the nominations the same. 

Somehow, news of Shannon being backdoored was doing the rounds, and everyone thought it was going to come to fruition. 

Eviction 2 Votes:

  • Shannon Elizabeth votes to evict: Keshia
  • Ariadna Guiterrez votes to evict: Keshia
  • Brandi Glanville votes to evict: Keshia
  • James Maslow: votes to evict: Keshia
  • Mark McGrath votes to evict: Keshia
  • Marissa Jaret Winokur votes to evict: Keshia
  • Metta World Peace votes to evict: Keshia

Keshia is the second evicted houseguest! 

Omarosa can breathe a sigh of relief, but will she be able to get the houseguests on her side to try and get Shannon out?

We have no idea, but something tells us the producers will be glad Omarosa is still inside the house.  She is TV gold. 

We still have another two weeks left with the houseguests, so the evictions will likely be ramped up to leave us with our final three. 

Shannon should watch her back because Omarosa is going to be gunning for her in retaliation for everything that transpired between them. 

What did you think of the episode?

Sound off below. 

Celebrity Big Brother continues Wednesday night on CBS. 


Shannon Beador: I Want David Beador OFF The Real Housewives of Orange County!

It’s been about two months since Shannon Beador filed for divorce on December 1st.

Since then, things have gone from somewhat amicable to no-holds-barred hostilities between Shannon and David Beador.

Now, Shannon is taking things a step further — and reportedly trying to get David fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County.

A little before Halloween, Shannon and David Beador decided to split after 17 years.

It had been reported that the two of them were basically living separate lives in the same household anyway, so the separation was not a huge surprise.

Still, the two of them had resolved to maintain some semblance of normality for the sake of their daughters.

For starters, even though David stopped loving Shannon when she became “fat,” they had resolved to keep things friendly.

They even scheduled regular weekend activities for the whole family.

But it’s really hard to go from loving your partner in life to feeling neutral-yet-friendly towards them. It is so much easier to hate them.

Things no longer appear to be amicable between the exes.

For starters, Shannon Beador apparently does not make the kind of money that David does, so she’s wanting a good deal when it comes to division of property and when it comes to alimony.

That’s pretty standard for divorce, but so are contentious debates about money.

In fact, it’s been reported that Shannon Beador accuses David of hiding money. If true, that sort of sneaky move to make it appear that he has less than he does could mean that a court might not have him pay Shannon her fair share.

And now it sounds like Shannon can’t even stand the sight of David.

RadarOnline reports that Shannon Beador wants David fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County.

She’s getting divorced, so that’s a huge thing that they’d need to cover, but Shannon believes that there’s enough unused footage of David from previous seasons.

“Shannon wants producers to use old footage to tell her story next season.”

That’s a hefty demand, especially from someone who’s reportedly negotiating more money from the show in order to spill secrets for the cameras.

“At this moment, she doesn’t want anything to do with him and filming with him would make this whole process so much harder on her.”

So this sounds less like a calculated financial sabotage and more like a lack of desire to show up to work with a man she can’t stand to be around.

“It is already really hard on her and the kids and there is just no reason to bring him on-camera if they already have what they need.”

For Shannon, this is a deep and emotional pain. They only split a few months ago and it will take a lot of time for these fresh wounds to heal.

“She is still hurting inside a lot.”

Imagine getting a divorce but showing up to work and your spouse is there and the two of you are supposed to spend a lot of time together. That’s what she’s facing.

“Shannon is in a better place than she was but she still does not want to have to face him, on-camera or in real life, because it is very hard.”

Shannon’s desire to go without David is very understandable.

And obviously, if one of them is to leave the show, we can’t imagine why it would be the Housewife. Not all of the Real Housewives are actually wives, but Shannon still makes more sense than David.

But we can’t help but wonder if this effort could come back to bite her.

Were he so inclined, couldn’t David try to sue her for “ruining his reality career” as Blac Chyna has been attempting with the Kardashians?

This is a fight over money, ultimately, and there’s no reason to believe that David will just go quietly.


June Shannon Talks All the Trash About Daughter’s Baby Daddy

June Shannon, role model?

Yes, according to June Shannon, that is.

In the following clip from this week's new episode of the WEtv reality series From Not to Hot, Shannon lays into her daughter's fiance and baby daddy, some dude named Josh Efird.

The 38-year old is simply stunned and aghast that little Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon has gotten herself knocked up at the age of 17 and is actually going to stay with this Josh fella.

"Josh gets on my ever-loving last God damn nerve,” June vents in the clip below to her boyfriend, Geno, adding of her future son-in-law:

“I told him he needs to get a better job if he’s going to support my grandchild. Every time he thinks that I let my guard down, I’ll be right behind him saying, ‘Boom motherf-cker."

But, wait, didn't June also have a child at the age of 17?

TWO children, in fact?

Yes, but she held down three jobs at the time and was responsible, she tells Geno.

"Pumpkin doesn't understand bills. Like, she's always coming [to me saying], ‘Hey, I need $ 100. Hey, I need gas.'" June explains here.

"But if Josh thinks I'm always going to be him and Pumpkin's safety net, they got another damn thing coming."

Geno (who, it bears repeating, is dating June Shannon on purpose) does his best to comfort his previously overweight lover.

But June is on an angry roll in this video.

"Pumpkin knows ain't none of my babies' daddies stuck around. But I don't want the same thing to happen to her…

"Pumpkin, I'm always going to be there for her, but Josh, he needs to shape up or ship out."

Lauryn, meanwhile, gave birth in December.

She is now the mother to a little girl named Ella Grace.

But when June first learned her teenager was expecting, she WENT OFF on the guy whose sperm made this possible.

"Pumpkin is f-cking pregnant. This not what I envisioned for her – at 17 to be f-cking having a baby," she yelled at Josh on an earlier episode, adding:

"I mean, what plans do you have? I mean, do you have any idea how much it takes to raise a baby? Coming home, working nine to five, eating f-cking ramen noodles and macaroni and cheese for the next 18 years.

"Are you ready for that? Ding dong!"

Sugar Bear: Angry Yet Horny After Mediation with June Shannon

Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson might not be the star of From Not to Hot, but he's sure getting some screen time. 

OBut on tonight's episode, his last mediation with Mama June left him so angry that his new wife encouraged him to calm down.

He had his own idea for how to blow off steam … and it involves his wife, Jennifer, and their shared bedroom. That's right, folks. Sugar Bear wants to bang out his frustrations.

Sugar bear and jennifer lamb amorous intentions

From Not to Hot is about more than just June Shannon's insane weight loss and total makeover.

It's about her life and her family's life. And that includes her ex-husband, Sugar Bear.

In tonight's episode, he is fuming about his latest interaction with the From Not to Hot star.

"In mediation, I knew June was trying to push my buttons," he tells the confessional.

Nobody can push your buttons like family, folks. Especially an ex.

Sugar bear and jennifer lamb at home

"And one of these days," he says. "I'm afraid I might just blow up again."

June Shannon accuses him of domestic violence, so that's … not a reassuring thing to hear.

The on-camere conversation between Sugar Bear and his wife, Jennifer Lamb, begins on a much more playful subject.

Sugar Bear wants to go to bed, and he does not wish to sleep.

Jennifer quickly understand what has him all riled up.

"You're just frustrated because of what happened at mediation."

And she knows how he processes that.

"More than anything, you just take it out in the bedroom and then you sleep."

Sugar bear on his couch

Jennifer cautions him against letting his anger get the best of him.

"If you let this anger out in front of people, like lawyers and judges, that's what June wants."

Really, he should be processing his anger in a healthy way, regardless.

"When they see that, there is no way Mike they will let you see your daughter by yourself."

And really, should any child's safety be risked around someone with anger management issues? The answer is, categorically, no.

"You got to be the calm, Mike, and not the blowed up Incredible Hulk person."

That is a truly incredible line. Imagine Chris Hemsworth delivering that line to Mark Ruffalo in Thor: Ragnarok instead of parodying the ridiculous "sun's going down" line from Age of Ultron.

Sugar bear and jennifer lamb amorous intentions

Of course, in this same episode, Jennifer White confesses that she has some reservations about Sugar Bear seeing Alana in the first place.

"I can't help thinking that Alana might not be Mike's."

A DNA test was brought up when Sugar Bear complained that June Shannon was keeping his daughter from him. But Jennifer's right — it could backfire.

"I know I would love Mike's child just like I love mine, but that lawyer said something that keeps sticking in my mind."

She has some definite opinions on how to respond to the test.

"If it turns out that Alana's not his, June Shannon would be out of my life forever. I sure in the hell ain't paying child support for a kid that’s not Mike's."

And Jennifer believes that she has good reason to doubt Alana's paternity.

"When he was with June, he was working a lot of nights. I wanna do a DNA test."

Sugar bear winks

And you can see that clip below.

In the end, though, Jennifer suggests a "healthy" stress-relief technique: throwing cinderblocks at photos of June Shannon

(We don't know how common it is for someone to have cinder blocks on hand, but apparently Mike's issue is that he doesn't have any photos of his ex)

We're not necessarily saying that it's the healthiest way to process things, but … it's better than actual violence against a person.

Sugar Bear: June Shannon is Keeping My Daughter From Me!

June Shannon's From Not to Hot is including her ex, Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson. You might say that she's sharing the wealth.

As you'll see in the clip below, though Sugar Bear is eager to see his daughter Alana again, one obstacle is giving him pause. Well, giving his new wife pause:

Child support. Every deadbeat dad's nightmare.

Sugar bear on from not to hot

For years, things were going reasonably well for Mama June Shannon and Sugar Bear.

Even when the couple split, they still had Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

And then Mama June ended up in bed with convicted child-molester who had once preyed upon her own daughter. The show got canceled, and the good times and easy money came to an end.

Astoundingly, Mama June was able to make a comeback with her own makeover series, From Not To Hot. She recently flaunted her insane weight loss at a premiere.

And, since Sugar Bear's such an important part of her past and her story, he's along for the ride.

Yes, including in season 2.

Mike thompson and jennifer lamb

In the clip that you'll see below, Sugar Bear and his new wife, Jennifer Lamb, are meeting with an attorney.


Because Sugar Bear wants to see his daughter, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson.

Sugar Bear alleges that June has been keeping Alana from him. He claims to have not seen his daughter for six months — since he got married to Jennifer.

We're not sure if we're meant to infer that June is angry that he remarried; that would be silly, since June Shannon has her own boyfriend now.

A more likely explanation would be that June Shannon accuses Sugar Bear of domestic violence, of having abused her and her daughters in the past. That's very, very serious.

Jennifer lamb sugar bears wife

Here's the thing: Sugar Bear isn't legally recognized as Alana's dad. So, he would need to fight to even be acknowledged as her father before he could get visitation.

And the attorney mentions to him — and his wife — that there's a price to be paid.

A literal price, folks. Child support payments are a real responsibility.

And apparently, Sugar Bear has never in his life paid them before now.

Mike thompson on from not to hot

Here is where Sugar Bear reminds viewers that he better resembles an offensively stereotypical cartoon character than a real person.

Sugar Bear describes how he "plans" to pay child support:

"I'm not worried about it right now. I'll figure it out when that time gets here."

That's barely even an okay way to decide what to eat for dinner with friends. Winging it with financial planning is a recipe for catastrophe.

And it's not exactly reassuring coming from a guy who wants to spend more time with his daughter.

Jennifer lamb

You know who isn't loving this? Jennifer Lamb.

She says that she's totally on board with Sugar Bear spending more time with Alana. She says that she'd make a good stepmom.

But she doesn't love the idea of yet another expense.

"We can't even finish saving up for our honeymoon, so how are we going to pay child support?"

The realization that this couple got married six months ago and still haven't gone on their honeymoon is … sad.

She does her best to sound adamant, insisting: "We're not dipping into our honeymoon fund."

See the exchange:

June Shannon to Daughters: This is My Boyfriend!

The disturbing rumors were turned into a frightening reality on the season 2 premiere of From Not to Hot:

June Shannon has a boyfriend.

As previously confirmed, his name is Geno Doak… he’s 42 years old… and he has unusual taste in women.

The television world was introduced to June’s lover on Friday night when she and her kids returned for the second go-around of their surprisingly popular series.

After growing suspicious of their mother and suspecting that her extreme weight loss had caused some dude to fall for her, children Lauren and Alana followed her to bingo one evening.

What they witnessed there was then burned into their eye sockets forever.

And ours as well.

“She’s kissing him!” Honey Boo Boo said as the couple exited a building and shared a smooch an hour after they had walked in.

“What kind of guy takes mama on a date to bingo?”

When June arrived home after her night out, she faced an interrogation session from her two daughters.

“Yes, I have found love y’all. I have a great wonderful guy, Geno, and I feel like a kid again,” explained Mama June, who dropped an incredible 300 pounds over the last year or so.

She is now a Size 4, which is a sentence we never thought we’d write.

“Geno knew me when I was heavy and I really think he’s here for the right reasons,” she continued, speaking to the camera and adding:

“I think he likes me for me, not for [fame] or me being skinny.”

That’s wonderful.

We’re not here to judge (too much) or anything.

It really is amazing how many pounds Shannon has shed.

Yes, she did it through a controversial medical procedure, but one must also diet and exercise properly to keep this weight off.

At one point on the premiere, June said sneaking around with Geno was “hot… like foreplay,” yet she also said her main goal wasn’t to be all secretive.

She’d prefer to be open with her kids.

“Geno’s the first guy that I’ve dated really serious since I’ve lost the weight, and I’m trying to keep this one to myself to see how it’s going to work out,” she said.

“I hope this one works out, but honestly, I’ve had some terrible luck with guys and I’ve got really burnt. So, it’s really hard for me to fully trust him right now.”

That’s an understatement.

Ex-husband Matt “Sugar Bear” Thompson has been accused of assaulting Shannon, while an ex-boyfriend was actually convicted of molesting her oldest daughter.

YIKES, right?

Following a pottery class they took together, Geno and June agreed that it was time for the former to actually meet Shannon’s family.

“This is Geno, we’ve been dating for a couple months,” Mama June said, as Alana shook his hand and asked:

“What’s your intentions with my mama?”

Later on, Alana admitted to her mother that she feared the new romance would mean far less time spent together for mother and child.

kissing june

“I mean, he’s a cool guy or whatever,” she said, before turning to her mom and inquiring:

Does that mean me and you ain’t going to hang out no more ’cause you have a boyfriend? You haven’t been around a lot.”

Replied Shannon:

“I mean, now that y’all are getting older, it’s time for me to find somebody that I can be happy with. I’ve been single for so long and been devoted to y’all.”

We’ll see if this relationship lasts, however.

The season 2 finale may need a cliffhanger. Will it be a break-up or a proposal?


Mama June Shannon: Secret Boyfriend’s Identity Revealed!

You know how the world recently learned that June Shannon has a secret boyfriend who taught her how to love again?

Mama June gushes about him and the two kiss on the From Not to Hot season 2 trailer, but his actual identity has been kept pretty hush-hush.

But now we know his name … and a lot more about him.

While it’s great that June’s new size 4 figure is helping her find happiness, for a lot of viewers, the news that June Shannon was dating again brought up … mixed feelings.

After all, June was infamously seen cozying up to Mark McDaniel … a convicted sex offender whom June’s own daughter, Anna Cardwell, accuses of molesting her.

The only good reason anyone can think of for a mother to spend time with the man who molested her then-8-year-old daughter while her then-three-year-old daughter (Lauryn) was also on the bed is if she had been planning to murder him.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was canceled over that scandal. It was years before the final episodes were aired and before June Shannon made her (real) reality television comeback with From Not to Hot.

Thankfully, Mama June does not appear to be repeating such an unimaginable mistake.

RadarOnline reports that Mama June’s new boyfriend is Geno Doak, a 42-year-old carpenter. 

June had previously stated, without naming her beau, that the two had met through mutual friends.

Apparently, that also involved her hiring him to fix up her home in Hampton, Georgia.

Geno Doak is also a single parent, as he has one son and two daughters.

What’s more — these two have dated before. Way back in 2015, in fact.

As we previously reported, Mama June hasn’t been able to resist gushing about her then-mystery boyfriend.

“He is very, very awesome,” she told E!

Well, she definitely sounds enthusiastic about the guy.

“He actually restored my faith and the girls’ faith in men.”

That’s pretty profound. Before you question why a girl as young as Alana might need her faith in men restored, remember that she has eyes and has also probably noticed her mother’s relationships over the years.

June also talks about what makes her love Geno.

“It’s the little things…he is above and beyond anything that I could ever expect.”

She talks about how this happy romance got started.

“We honestly were just wanting to be friends and things just worked out.”

A lot of relationships begin that way.

RadarOnline confirms that Geno Doak will appear on the second season of From Not to Hot, by the way.

We’d figured as much.

But we already knew that June’s ex, Sugar Bear, and his new wife would be appearing on the new season, too.

And apparently June does not give one flying flip what he thinks about her new relationship.

“As long as I’m happy and the girls are happy at the end of the day, that’s all that matters to me.”

It sounds like she has her priorities in order.
