Honey Boo Boo’s June Shannon Thinks She’s Just Like Dina Lohan

October 16, 2012 09:37 AM by Stephanie Gustafson

Everybody is weighing in on the latest Lohan scandal. And everybody includes June Shannon, the mom made famous by TLC’s hit show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. June Shannon thinks she has a lot in common with Dina Lohan. What do the two share besides fame and crazy children?

June Shannon can sympathize with Dina Lohan, the latest celebrity train wreck. During a recent chat with TMZ’s Harvey Levin, June weighed in on the recent Lohan blowup. “Lindsay Lohan, I bet that she has had a lot of family issues. We’re going through the same thing with a couple fathers of my kids who have not been in their lives for years, and all of a sudden now, they are wanting to be father of the year.”

Just in case you were wondering, Mama June is not referring to Honey Boo Boo’s dad Sugar Bear. He’s been around to witness his daughter’s childhood. But Sugar Bear is not the biological father of Cubbs or Chickadee, June’s other strangely-nicknamed daughters. That honor goes to Anthony Michael Ford and David Dunn, two guys who left a long time ago and are now starting to show interest in their daughters.

Mama June does have a point. Although Michael Lohan’s assessment of Dina as “cuckoo” seems spot-on, he can take the blame for being absent throughout much of Lindsay’s childhood, and then showing up to capitalize on her fame and fortune.

Do you think June Shannon is right to compare herself to Dina Lohan? We think that Honey Boo Boo’s mom is a hell of a lot more likable than Dina…but that’s just our opinion. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below!

    It would have been easy for June to knock Dina Lohan, everyone does. However, June took the high road and offered up compassion instead. I suspect the comments that follow mine will be quips about June’s weight or parenting skills by people too shallow to recognize her innate goodness. I find that sad.

    I like June and her family. She seems honest and down to earth.

    June is a good mom. She takes a cautious approach to Alana’s new found fame. Her first intention was to establish trust funds for all of her daughters. Mike (sugarbear) has been in those girls lives for over 8 years and is a father type to Jessica, Lauryn, and Anna. Their family is totally down to earth and normal like most of us. June is compassionate, self accepting, and always open about teaching her girls to ‘give back’. These are qualities we should all take example from. Dina is lost in her own dillusions – I feel sorry for her kids because they have no form of guidance from either parent!

    i think that June has her act together then Dina. Michael and Dina Lohan are pathetic parents. I love June and Sugarbear, wish they wouldn’t pass gass on t.v. But they r a joy. I can’t wait tell they come back on TLC.
