Fans of "Mama June: From Not to Hot" are pretty heated over "Pumpkin" Lauren Shannon and Honey Boo Boo. Teen mom Pumpkin ran her mouth and Alana Thompson just plain ran away. This may have put a damper on June's new relationship. Earlier June Shannon worried folks with a revelation that she has a mysterious illness after weight loss and plastic surgery. What's eating the Reality TV family?

Viewers call out Pumpkin, HBB

Pregnant 17-year-old Pumpkin Shannon blasted her mom with f-bombs, nasty names, and whipped her the bird after Mama June confronted Pumpkin's baby daddy.

Honey Boo Boo got all sulky and scared June by taking off from a dress shop they were visiting. YouTube fans of WETV "From Not to Hot" saw red over such disrespect. Viewers shamed the celebrity kids for their "spoiled brat" behavior and said they deserved to be spanked.


Mama June's producers want to keep the reality television show going. After the bariatric surgery, new breast implant, skin removal, tummy tuck, and plastic surgery reveal of Season 1, folks are losing interest. To advertise her fabulous 300-pound weight loss, "From Not to Hot" will feature June Shannon in a beauty pageant. Ex pageant star Alana Thompson was all on board with the publicity shtick till June passed the crown of pageant coach on to someone else.

Alana ran off to cry to her Sugar Bear.

Alana dethroned

It's no surprise to most folks that Honey Boo Boo was replaced as Mama June's coach. Alana's time on "Toddlers & Tiaras" may have given her pageant experience, but not as a coach. Reality TV producers wanted a professional, not a kid. And then there's the little matter of Alana's alarming obesity.

Former reality star Abby Lee Miller of "Dance Moms" pulls off the morbidly obese dance coach and "My Big Fat Fabulous Life" star Whitney Way Thore is a dancer. But being so overweight isn't ideal.

Sugar Bear and Jennifer Lamb play HBB off her mom

Mike Thompson wants more time with his daughter, Honey Boo Boo, perhaps because it keeps him and his wife Jennifer Lamb on reality TV.

On "From Not to Hot" they were delighted to trash talk June and welcomed Alana after her flounce and bounce from mom. They've used their daughter in power struggles with Shannon before. But is Sugar Bear Alana's baby daddy? Mama June hinted that he might not be.

Mama June scares off boyfriend?

June Shannon has a new lover named Geno Roak, but it may be more passionate on her side than his. Shannon asked him to move in with her and he refused. So June offered to stay with him, but Geno politely declined. What about the secret illness June has alluded to? Is that dampening his ardor? Geno just said he felt it was too soon and that the Celebrities' menage was a little crazy. Perhaps he is that rare reality TV star with common sense and maturity.
