The most recent episode of “Mama June: Family Crisis” included an emotional reunion between Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and her mother June “Mama June” Shannon. Honey Boo Boo sobbed, “I simply feel like my mother should be there at graduation ceremonies, and I feel that she should be present for my prom, and she should be there for the little moments in school… just the little senior activities I have,” Page Six said.
The former “Toddlers & Tiara” star, who has been living with her elder sister Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon since last year, admitted that she often felt excluded whenever her peers discussed things she wasn’t interested in.
