Honey Boo Boo’s Mom Has A Record — The Criminal Kind

August 17, 2012 01:30 PM by Gina Hall

Who would have thought that someone that sells her child’s looks for money doesn’t have the most illustrious backstory. Seems that Honey Boo Boo’s mom, June Shannon, has a history with the cops. So will this affect the “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” star’s quest for pageant glory?

According to the “New York Daily News,” June Shannon has an arrest record in Georgia from 2008. She was arrested for theft and contempt of court. Allegedly the theft charges may involve child support as June was involved in a number of child support cases at time according to “Starcasm.com.”

Now, mind you that this all happened before June figured out that she didn’t have to worry about child support if her child actually supported her. So six-year-old Alana Thompson, more commonly known as Honey Boo Boo, went on the pageant circuit.

Honey Boo Boo went viral when a video clip of her downing a Mountain Dew/Red Bull combo that sent her zinging onto the stage with uber-childlike energy.

“I want to win because I want to make money,” the six-year-old said. “A dollar make me holler, honey boo boo!” That’s a catchphrase if ever we heard one. They learn so young now.

June Shannon defended the drink, of course.

“A lot of pageant moms and people know what the ‘special juice’ is. Everybody has their different concoction. ‘Special juice’ is to help energize her,” June said.

Yeah, it energized her to holler for the almighty dollar for June. Of course we’ve seen kids at Disneyland more hopped up on sugar than that and we’re not publicly calling them out. So is it wrong to sugar up your kids for money or should we stick to what most Americans do and sugar them up for free?

    You know, everyone makes mistakes and just because you’re arrested for child support doesn’t make you a bad person. We don’t know what the circumstances were. Also you can tell when a child doesn’t want to do pageants and it’s the mom’s idea. This is obviously not the case with Alana and June, Alana wants to do this. Also, when I’ve watched their different episodes, all of those kids are happy and laughing. Yea they might be a little ruff around the edges, but I haven’t one time seen them be nasty to anyone other than joking around as a lot of people are being to them about this show. You all must forget this is a 6 year old and her sisters and her mother and dad…grow a heart and enjoy it for what it is!! Quit looking for the negatives!!
