Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson to Stay in Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Despite Split
Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson may have split from the star of reality TV program Here Comes Honey Boo Boo “Mama June” Shannon, but it seems that the show must (and will) go on.
It’s claimed that producers want to keep him in the cast because he’s vital to the whole thing as the biological father of the real star of the show, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson.
It seems, too, that the couple’s separation will inevitably become a major storyline. And there’ll certainly be no shortage of potential and potentially exciting plots, from single parenting to breakups and dating.
But the show’s makers, TLC, have vowed to proceed sensitively as far as the kids are concerned, and will reportedly show Mama June, who also has three other daughters older than Honey Boo Boo from another relationship, as the newly single, independent rock of the family.
Though technically never married, Mama June does have a “wedding ring” which she apparently threw off after hearing her newly ex-former long-term partner had been browsing dating websites.
Mama June also allegedly plans to take the kids closer to her family once the latest filming round is over.
Season 4 of the show ended last month, and there’s no word on when season 5 will air, but it, and season 6, are likely to deal above all with the fallout from the break-up.
We’ll keep you posted.
