Mama June channels Marilyn Monroe

'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' matriarch gets a makeover, becomes a blonde

'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' '/' TLC

"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" is a huge success and it was only a matter of time before its stars became glamorous.


But fear not fans. Glamour is relative and when the TLC show's matriarch, June Shannon (aka Mama June), decided to get a makeover, it involved her daughters dying her hair in the kitchen sink. Although Alana (aka Honey Boo Boo) is a pageant vet, she and her sisters had trouble applying the dye. "Mama, all your bugs are jumpin' out your head," she quipped.

Mama June's blond transformation was a part of the show's Halloween special, which aired Sunday. If January seems a little late for pumpkins and costumes, don't sweat it. The "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" Thanksgiving special airs next week and the Christmas special airs in February.

And the new 'do didn't go unnoticed. Sugar Bear was so excited about his 33-year-old mate's newly golden tresses, that he bought her a Marilyn Monroe-style frock so she could dress up as the legendary bombshell for Halloween. But in the end, Mama June was too modest -- and possibly too embarrassed by her daughters' insults -- to channel her inner Marilyn on the trick or treat circuit.


Check out the video:


Even if you aren't as excited about Mama June's blondness as Sugar Bear, you have to admit, it certainly suits her.


The "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" Thanksgiving special airs Sunday, Jan. 13, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on TLC and the Christmas special airs in February.

I must admit, however, that the apparent 'love' that Bear guy has for his wife Mama is admirable and more than a lot of people will or do know; BUT that does NOT change nor excuse that Runny Eew Eew's atrocious behavior or the mere vile of her greasy little existence.

First- ParkAvenue4me: Trash is not required to reside in a trailer to qualify as trash. Next time when you are out and about leering at the world from the end of your high-end beak, take notice of the Park Avenue Trash Elite...

Second- I do completely agree with ParkAvenue4me; when things like Runny Eew Eew and Mama have a fan base and following, it proves why our country has fallen from being the World Power to the World Jester.

As my Grannie used to say (she, from the Ozark people)

"Ya can't polish a turd."

Blonde, brunette, red head she's still looks like a hog.  When the zombie apocalypse comes  they will be running from here.

Seriously, this is news? How pathetic.

When I saw this TV show touted all over the media it was a sad awakening as to how desperate and low our nation has gone to find entertainment. There is nothing appealing about this child or family in my opinion. When the hell did the USA start glamorizing trailer trash

Glamorous?!?  R U #@&*! blind?

Looking glamourous?  Are you freaking kidding me?  An old saying comes to mind.  You can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear.

What's sad is that this even warrants printing, as well as visuals. This IS NOT entertainment, not noteworthy, not anything but trash. Shame on anyone who wastes 1 second of their life watching this garbage!

She needs a heck of a lot more than this.  She looks NOTHING like MM.  OMG.
