‘The Doctors’ Fault Mama June for Honey Boo Boo’s Obesity [VIDEO]
Former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo stars Mama June and Alana Thompson (aka Honey Boo Boo herself) are set to appear on an episode of The Doctors today (Feb. 25), where the doctors will attempt to have an intervention with the two for the sake of Alana's health.
In the dramatic trailer (which you can watch above), the doctors have a serious sit-down with Mama June, telling her, "No more excuses. She is an obese 9-year-old. It all starts with you." Interspersed throughout the trailer are clips with Alana, who says things like "I like a lot of stuff deep-fried; I like deep fried Oreos" as the music swells in the background.
Like almost everything surrounding Mama June, Honey Boo Boo and the whole Here Comes Honey Boo Boo phenomenon, the way the trailer is edited, it almost appears to be poking fun at the mother and daughter. That being said, the subject is a serious matter and the doctors appear to be taking Mama June's stake in her daughter's health very seriously.
Mama June has been under fire ever since she reportedly began dating her ex-boyfriend Mark McDaniel, a convicted child molester who spent ten years in prison for molesting her daughter Anna. She later admitted that she had "made mistakes and done wrong."
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was canceled in October 2014 after news broke that Mama June was reportedly back with McDaniel. As of December, Mama June revealed that her ex (and Alana's father) Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson had moved back into their home and the two were working on their relationship.
