During this week’s episode of the new WEtv series Mama June: From Not to Hot, the ladies argued over how to parent 11-year-old Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson. Since Mama June is on her weight loss journey and she’s adopting a healthy lifestyle, she’s trying to make sure her daughters also develop healthy eating habits — but all of that gets sabotaged when Jennifer insists on letting Alana eat all the junk food she wants.
“I’ve been working hard on my body and I’m trying to get the kids to eat healthy — if y’all wanna eat unhealthy on your own time, go ahead,” she told Jennifer and Sugar Bear after they dropped Alana off with a box of cupcakes.
Sugar Bear (real name Mike Thompson) said he wanted Alana to eat her sweets. But Mama June said that if they were going to continue to disrespect her wishes about Alana’s eating habits, then she wouldn’t let them have visits with her daughter anymore.
“The point of the matter is I would appreciate you not giving my daughter sweets,” June said. “Know that whenever I see that sh-- it’s going in the trash because you’re not the mother and you’re never gonna be anything to Alana.”
“I’ll just be the mother that you can’t be,” Jennifer hit back.
But even with all of the drama between her, Sugar Bear, and his new fiancee, Mama June is still committed to her weight loss goals. One of the reasons she decided to start her journey is because she wanted to get revenge on her ex after he announced that he was marrying Jennifer — and she underwent weight loss surgery in order to help her drop from 460 pounds to a size 4, which will be revealed at the end of the season.
