Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is forever burned into our brains.

Like accidentally seeing a family member naked, seeing a car crash, or remembering that time you threw up in Mrs. Darmody's grade seven class.

The point is that all those things stick with you. You remember the sights, the noises, and the smells. Oh, God the smell...

Anyway, remembering where you were when you first heard of Honey Boo Boo and her mom is one of those things. Mama June is a force of nature but she's no longer like how you remember her...


America was first introduced to June "Mama June" Shannon and her feisty little daughter Honey Boo Boo on TLC's Toddlers & Tiaras.

The premise of the show was following families as they shopped their kid around the child pageant circuit. 

But audiences particularly ate up the antics of the Thompsons, so much so that TLC started the spin-off show, Here comes Honey Boo Boo.

So, we got the whole family.


While Honey Boo Boo would always steal the show, it was Mama June who was pushed into the forefront with the spin-off.

Their lifestyle fascinated everyone.

The show went off the air on August 14, how do they look now??

THAT was basically a year ago.
