Mama June spent Thanksgiving Eve at Harrah’s Cherokee Hotel and Casino in Cherokee, NC. She was seen with her boyfriend, Geno.
Mama June, her real name being June Shannon, has seen better times. Since her TV show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, which aired for two years, from 2012 to 2014, things have pretty much gone downhill. I mean, that show was cancelled after Mama June admitted to fraternizing with registered sex offenders.
Watching Mama June is kind of like watching a train wreck, am I right? Honey Boo Boo, real name Alana Thompson, refuses to live with her Mama while she is shacking up with this Geno Doak guy. He reportedly has a serious drug issue, and Mama June does as well. In fact, since at least June Honey Boo Boo has been residing with older sister, Pumpkin.
In March, Mama June was arrested for crack cocaine. Since, she apparently continues to choose a man, along with drugs and gambling, over her own children.

Remember her weight loss? She was quite overweight during the TV show. Afterwards, she lost a lot of weight. As in 261 pounds. She lost it with the assistance of surgery, but I wonder if she is using the crack to stay skinny. Who knows.

I never did understand why that show was ever aired. It was bizarre. I admit to having it on my TV a couple of times. The entire time it was on, if I gave it my attention, my jaw remained dropped. Kind of like rubbernecking at a really bad car accident. You don’t know why you are looking, but you just can’t stop. Human nature I suppose.
