'June Shannon' /' TLC


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."

I refuse to watch Honey Boo Boo so thank God, she's not going to be on the show, because I definitely wouldn't be watching it this coming season.

It kind of sucks knowing we'll never see her do classic dance moves like "The Hippo Stomp:"; The Shamoo Slide";  The Big Butt Bugaloo", or "The 16 Chin Waddle"!

Wow I thought I might have to give up watching the show for this season. Thank God for small (or should I say BIG) favors. I probably should say I'm sorry as that was a mean thing to say and I have never watched that show but I can't even stand the commercials about it. Looks like trash out to make a buck by showing the public how dumb and dumber can get idiots to watch their trashy life.

Gee... what a shame! At least they won't have to change the name of the show to "Dancing With Whales"!!!!!

a small list of things we dont need (provided you watch the show) 1. Mama junes fat @ss causing a 9.0 in the area of filming. 2. her @ss to drop dead from a heart attack during the middle of a show where she has to exert herself physically.  3. anything having to do with Honey boo boo or her inbred family.

 This just ruined my entire day. This mutt needs to get a clue and stop parading her daughter around the stage with her at the fat farm. The worst part is that this woman is a role model to millions of fat, KFC addicts, and is probably a spokesperson for many trailer park ads.

Not going to dance on the show ?????


I am so pleased about that. I feel blessed !! lmao

Thank god. Can you imagine being her partner and having to toss her around "effortlessly".  I'd be lookin at my contract.  That's a hernia on two legs. You'd last maybe a week. Dances are supose to be pretty and sexy.  There is nothing pretty or sexy about that woman. Avon doesn't make enough cosmetics to cover up that much ugly. They have had heavy dancers before but not that heavy. They'd have to fly  her with arresting cables off an aircraft carrier and a winch. Having thought about it for a minute I might actually watch it.  I like physical  comedies and that would be one hell of a hoot. I'm all for full figured women but damn she could set the movement back a few hundred years. And somebody gave her perfectly good sperm?  Well wait have you seen Baby Boo Boo perhaps I am wrong about that quality.

The D is for dancing, right? Wow, can't see that happening. She has children? Who would want to hit that is what I can't figure out.

WTF?  Momma looks and acts like an ignorant cow, bet the entire male staff of dancers would have quit rather than appear in public with her.  Of course getting Pamela Anderson of T&A fame on there wasn't such a good idea either.  Show used to be classy.

Since when was that ignorant, uneducated cretin considered a 'star'??? If she is a 'star', then the definition of the word has changed.
