Mama June won't be 'Dancing With the Stars'
TLC says rumors 'Honey Boo Boo' matriarch will compete are untrue
Bad news for fans of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" and "Dancing With the Stars" -- Mama June will not be a contestant on the hit ballroom competition series.
A TLC spokesperson told Huffington Post the rumors are false. Whisperings that Mama June aka June Shannon might appear on "DWTS" first surfaced when the New York Daily News quoted an ABC insider, who named Shannon as a possible contestant.
Mama June, 33, recently grabbed headlines when she said she lost 115 pounds without changing her diet and just being "more active" for the show. Wow. Just imagine what doing the cha-cha could've done for her.
The contestants on "Dancing With the Stars" Season 16 will be announced Tuesday, Feb. 26, on "Good Morning America."
