The sisters are reportedly looking to dominate their world of reality shows without their mother by their side as they want to do things their own way!
Honey Boo Boo & Pumpkin In Talks For New Reality Show
According to The Sun, an insider close to the family revealed that Honey Boo Boo and Pumpkin are preparing for a meeting later this month with a top shot to discuss the prospect of having their own reality show.
“They are in talks about having their own show and they will be meeting about it in the next few weeks,” the source disclosed. “Pumpkin packed up the SUV. She is driving out there with Josh, the twins who are just two months old, Ella and Bentley. Alana and Dralin are also driving. ”
The siblings are said to be taking two cars to their destination because one vehicle won’t be enough for everyone going on the trip. However, the journey isn’t strictly business for the girls who plan to make a pitstop at the Grand Canyon.
Details of the meeting and the proposed show remain unknown. However, it is believed that the girls are making such major moves in response to the custody issues involving their mother, Mama June.
The new reality show will follow Honey Boo and Pumpkin and how they deal with the dramas of their daily lives.
Mama June Lost Custody Of Honey Boo Boo
As The Blast reported, Mama June, whose real name is June Shannon, made headlines early last month when it was reported that she officially lost custody of her 16-year-old daughter Honey Boo Boo.
As you might know, Mama June has been plagued with drug addiction battles and has had to be in and out of rehab in recent years. As a result, she was perceived unfit to have custody of her underage daughter.
According to court documents filed on April 11, a Wilkinson County judge signed off on relinquishing the “Mama June: From Not to Hot” star of custody.
Instead, Pumpkin, 22, was given sole custody over Honey Boo Boo, and she will decide on Mama June’s visitation rights, if there are any.
Mama June, however, wouldn’t be totally cut off from her teenage daughter as she can contact the “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” star daily via phone. The 42-year-old was also required to pay a monthly child support of $800 to Pumpkin until Honey Boo Boo turns 18.
The child support won’t prove to be a hassle for Mama June who is reportedly making as much as $25,000 per month thanks to her new show, “Mama June: Road To Redemption.”
Despite the reported ruling on the custody of Honey Boo Boo, Mama June has maintained that she didn’t lose custody in the first place.
The WE tv star said during a recent interview that it was a matter of “temporary guardianship” and not lost custody.
She explained, “Alana made that choice to stay in that environment. People don’t understand the custody thing. It’s not like somebody ‘lost custody.’”
Mama June continued, “In the state of Georgia, you do temporary guardianship every year and [Alana] had been with [Lauryn] in my addiction. Well, at the age of 12, you’re able to make your choice.”
The older reality star insists she has a solid relationship with her daughters. She shared that she actually had the discussion with Pumpkin about what was best for Honey Boo Boo.
