Mama June Shannon to appear on 'Botched'
Mama June Shannon is making her reality TV comeback.
Shannon revealed to ET's Kevin Frazier that she's set to appear on Botched. She's going on the E! cosmetic surgery reality series to remove excess skin following her extensive weight loss.
The 36-year-old reality star, who first became famous on TLC's Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, is currently on WE tv's Marriage Boot Camp with her estranged husband, Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson. The two have been dealing with revelations that Thompson cheated on Shannon.
"Me and Sugar's been in a relationship for a little over 11 years, and it's in serious trouble, because Sugar's been cheating, and I'm hoping to get some answers," Shannon shared on the show. "My daughter, Alana, found proof and that's what really devastated me!"
Shannon's return to TV comes hot on the heels of the news that she and the Thompson family are working on a new show. According to an update on the now 10-year-old Alana Thompson's official Facebook page, the new series will start in December, and will be "real and unscripted."
"OK for everyone it was asked if we are going to be back on TV, the answer is yes and it will be very soon," the statement reads. "It will not be [on the] TLC network but it will be announced as we were told with people on Tuesday. I will be able to get out more details soon but we are excited as it will air starting in December. But it will not be [a] Here Comes Honey Boo Boo kind of thing, but it will be reality TV and it will be real and unscripted like we have always ever been. That's [the] only kind of TV we believe in and we want you all to see the true side of all of us."
The new series will have no affiliation with TLC, which canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Booin October 2014, following reports that Shannon was dating convicted child molester Mark McDaniel. McDaniel was convicted of molesting Shannon's oldest daughter, Anna Cardwell, when she was 8 years old. Shannon denied last fall that she and McDaniel had renewed a romantic relationship.
