It’s been more than three months since TLC announced they were canceling Here Comes Honey Boo Boo in the wake of reports that Mama June Shannon had been spending time with Mark McDaniel, the man convicted of molesting June’s daughter Anna when she was eight years old. Although the cameras stopped rolling, the drama has continued with the Honey Boo Boo family, including the break up of Mama June and Sugar Bear, a bitter falling out between “Uncle Poodle” Lee Smith and the rest of the family, and a very public feud between mama June and daughter Anna Cardwell among other things.
Today Mama June took to Facebook to provide fans with the latest family updates, including the very last photos of the family at their now famous home in McIntyre, Georgia:
Here is Mama June’s full caption:
Well this well b the last pic as a family at 100 pine circle mcintrye ga as me and the girls move to hampton 100% but right now sugarbear and his brother (not lee) will b staying in mcintrye in another house they rented yes we r being civil and have agreed to that he will c alana and the girls in hampton every weekend we have had some AWESOME times and MEET ppl we wouldn’t have meet in our life other wise famous or not …. the fans we have meet thanks for coming to visit and thanks to all of u for our support we have some BIG things coming up this yr but cant announce just yet but will when we can and b4 anyone says anything yes jessica will b staying in mcintrye to finish her senior out as she wants to graduates with her friends she has known since 2nd grade but she will in hampton every weekend and every time they r on vacation at school it was a hard decision and im going to miss her dearly there is so many memories in this house we lived here 5 yrs and filmed for 2 and 1/2 of them we have had our ups and down alot of love alot of pranks this is where all the fame started this is where brought katilyn home too … where we was able to help 100s of family with christmas for 5 yrs with the christmas display and 3 of them christmas we had help from fans and we appreciate that very much we will still b doing things for the community starting in hampton as I have been in touch some ppl but at the end of the day it’s about making memories and now it’s time to make new memories back in my hometown and see what new adventures life will provide for us….we appreciate all the support and love from fans u can still send fan mail to po box 72 McIntyre ga 31054 right now as I will get it once a wk from jessica ..thanks for sharing this awesome journey with us there us more to come ….
So, in summary, Sugar Bear and his non-Uncle Poodle brother have rented a home in McIntyre and he visits Alana and the girls on the weekends. Jessica, however, is remaining in McIntyre (it is unclear if she is living with Sugar Bear) to finish her senior year in high school, and she also spends her weekends (and holidays) with the rest of her family in their new house in Hampton, Georgia.
Also, it appears as though the Honey Boo Boo family will be returning to television! Or something similar. “We have some BIG things coming up this yr,” Mama June says, adding, “but cant announce just yet but will when we can and b4 anyone says anything.” In comments section she was asked, “When are they going to show the last season recorded? I miss this show.” Mama June responded with a similar statement. “I don’t know but we will b back with some big things soon.”
Another commenter pointed out, “June, you said on Dr. Phil that the girls were tired of filming & wanted to get back to a normal life. So why hire a PR firm & announce more to come in 2015?” Another added, “If the girls are tired of it why put ’em thru it again?” Mama June’s answer seems to further hint at a new show of some sort. “They r oh k filming once in a whole not all the time.”
Mama June also posted this next photo of Alana in their new home and reveals that she is headed to her first day at her new school and “is excited and nervous:”
Mama June adds that Pumpkin (Lauryn) is still having problems stemming from her brain injury she received in a car accident last January and that she will be “getting schooled from home 3 hrs a wk.”
The post received hundreds of comments, many of which Mama June responded to, including several about the home schooling comment:
Why just 3 hours?
That’s what ga requires
3 hours a week? Sure teachers in the states can put in more time for her in her condition
That’s all ga gives u on homebound
Mama June continued to answer questions and respond to comments, including A LOT about her ex Mark McDaniel, the one convicted of molesting Anna as a child.
Is the child molester going to be moving to the new house???
HELL NO I COULD CARE LESS WHERE OR WHAT HE IS DOING
Why are you moving to Hampton
This is my hometown and my sister lives around the corner
Once I learn u lived with child molesters and then had enough nerve to act like your child was lying changed everything I thought about u June! You are gross and need help
I NEVER LIVED WITH HIM WE DATED OVER 11 YRS AGO I JUST SEEN 2 TWICE ONE BY CHOICE SECIND CAUSE PUMPKIN WANTED CLOSURE
The biggest mistake you could have made! You and sugar bear should have never did that! You ruined your fan base of what you did!
Lol all I have to say on that is u never know how a person is out side of tv and I can promise u sugarbear ain’t all good
Really feel bad for SugarBear. He got the raw deal in all this. Try to make it right for all the girls and keep loving each other!
We r friends and r talking and not fighting anx civil abd u never know the future
Where has Jessica been during this whole ordeal?
How far is Hampton, Ga. from McIntyre, Ga. and what made the decision to move do you have family there
I have family here abd support as I don’t drive abd all
Brain injury my butt, now you’re looking for social security benefits for her…..
Lol she does have a closed brain injury that not any f***ing thing to play with abd I don’t get no f***ing check for her thank u why don’t u go back to your buddies page our u one that goes and reports everything to them but they both knkw bout that I don’t play when it comes to my kids health PERIOD
She had the injury since 1/6/14 and I haven’t got a f***ing dime and don’t want any money her health and well being is all I worry bout ….
I think Lee told the truth and unfortunately those kids are in the crossfires because their mom shacked up with a pedo and now is moving just miles away from him.. Yes such a great mom 🙂
I guess on here, you can sleep w molesters and lie on your kids and yet still makes mother of the yr!!!
IT’S FUNNY HOW Y’ALL KNOW ABOUT HIS LIFE THEN I DO AS I COULD CARE F***ING LESS WHERE HE IS OR WHAT HE IS DOING BUT HE HAS ALWAYS HAD FAMILY AROUND HERE HIS KIDS HAVE ALWAYS LIVED HERE EVEN WHEN I WAS WITH HIM 11 YRS AGO I BROUGHT MY HOUSE TO B CLOSER TO MY FILY FOR FAMILY SUPPORT AS MY SISTER LIVES AROUND THE CORNER
I just find it hard to believe that Mama June has chosen to move closer to her child molesting boyfriend..And the fact that she took Anna’s money & bought him a car & so many other things..I really thought she was all about her children .Praying Over This Broken Family !! The Truth Always Comes Out & Sometimes The Truth Is Very Ugly !!
I FOR ONE IM NOT IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM AND HAVENT BEEN SINCE 2004 SECIND I COULD CARE LESS WHERE R WHAT HE DOES WITH HIS LIFE IT’S NONE OF MY BUSINESS AND THIRD I MOVED TO HAMPTON FOR FAMILY SUPPORT AS MY FAMILY LIVES HERE THANKS
Is the child molester moving in ???? I miss seeing Alana but June mesed that up because she love the child molester..
NO I HAVE NOT SEE HIM
NOR DO I CARE TOO
Always sad when a family breaks up. Guess I am of the old school where I believe people don’t try hard enough to save or repair what they have. I have been a fan however that will change if you really are involved with a molester (now or down the line).
No I am not we dated 11 yrs ago from 2000 to 2004 when the incident took place that it’s I could care less what he is doing in his life
[Someone posted this next map and wrote “A picture is worth a thousand words.”]

Lillie she only wants him around to be her whipping boy. Plus if he’s there it takes the heat off of CPS snooping around looking for Mark. If I had to wager on it.

UPDATE – If you were wondering about the comment referencing Mama June hiring a new manager, that was something she revealed on Instagram about a week and a half ago:
