Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson was in the passenger seat of boyfriend Dralin Carswell’s car when he led police on a chase that resulted in a PIT maneuver and a DUI arrest.
It’s been almost 10 years since Here Comes Honey Boo Boo debuted on TLC featuring the then six-year-old Alana Thompson. She had been a stand-out of the network’s pageant show Toddlers & Tiaras because of her outgoing personality and talent for catchphrases, including the iconic “honey boo boo” line that is now forever attached to her identity. In a new Teen Vogue feature, the now 16-year-old Alana is now is finding her way to navigate her own identity as she grapples with the Honey Boo Boo persona. “My mama did not name me Honey Boo Boo. My name is Alana,” she says in the interview. “They are completely two different people.”
WEtv’s reality show Mama June: From Not to Hot now has a further subheading: “Family Crisis.” In March of 2019, June Shannon and her boyfriend of three years Geno Doak were arrested after a domestic altercation at an Alabama gas station. Last fall they were indicted on felony drug charges in relation to that event because they were caught possessing crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia. Now, as June’s criminal trial, her life seems to be spiraling further out of control. Tonight’s episode of the show deals with the heartbreaking toll her situation is taking on her children and the rest of her family. Earlier this year she even resulted to selling all of her possessions on Facebook for some quick cash, including possessions that belonged to her children Pumpkin and Alana, and her grandchild Ella.
Mama June’s daughters Anna Cardwell and Jessica Shannon are following in their mom’s footsteps as they both received complete makeovers that included over $100,000 worth of plastic surgery, dental veneers, and more. Keep reading for photos of the siblings before, during, and after their makeovers!
From Not To Hot star Mama June is asking a judge to lift the no contact order in place between her and boyfriend Geno Doak in part because she is partially blind and needs his help to get through the days. Plus, watch a From Not To Hot promotional clip which seems to make it obvious that WE tv has no plans to cancel the show in the wake of the arrests. In contrast, they seem perfectly happy to use it as a promotional tool to boost ratings!
