Honey Boo Boo and her family have become overnight celebrities thanks to the reality show ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,’ and Mama June says their fame has made then more like the Lohans! Read on to find out what she said.
Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and her family have been called many things since the launch of their TLC reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, but similar to actress Lindsay Lohan and her dysfunctional clan is not one of them — until mama June Shannon made the comparison herself!
Alana and June stopped by the TMZ offices on Oct. 15, and when Harvey Levin asked the “Coupon Queen” what she thought about Lindsay Lohan’s personal troubles, Mama June gave a shocking answer!
“Lindsay Lohan, I bet that she has had a lot of family issues,” she said. “We’re going through the same thing with a couple fathers of my kids [who] have not been in their lives for years, and all of a sudden now, they are wanting to be father of the year.”
June, referring to her ex-boyfriends Anthony Michael Ford, the father of Jessica “Cubbs,” 16, and David Dunn, the father of Anna “Chickadee,” 18, said both men have come forward with the desire to have a relationship with their kids again, but only because they are “famous” now.
But June insisted that Jessica has no interest in pursing a relationship with her biological father, who was notably absent her entire life.
It does seem like a fair comparison to Lindsay’s father Michael Lohan. He has been capitalizing on his oldest daughter’s fame ever since she became a film star — even landing a spot on the VH1 reality show Celebrity Rehab — and using every chance he can to talk about Lindsay’s drug and legal problems to the press.
What do YOU think of June comparing her family to the Lohans HollyMoms?
