Former TLC fixture Mama June Shannon is recovering after an incident that sent the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch to the hospital.
TMZ reports that Shannon collapsed in her Georgia home on Wednesday after a period of feeling ill and vomiting. She experienced multiple fainting spells during that time which prompted her 16-year-old daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon to rush her to a medical facility. According to TMZ, the health scare was likely brought on by Shannon pushing herself particularly hard with her diet.
People has provided a bit of an update on Shannon’s condition. The outlet shared a Splash News picture of Mama June with her daughter Alana (aka the titular Honey Boo Boo) in the hospital together. As of this time, tests are still being done to determine what caused the 36-year-old to pass out.
Mama June and the family have been pretty much shunned as a pop culture entity after a report surfaced that June had been dating a man who was previously convicted of child molestation in a horrific incident involving her own daughter. TLC axed the show relatively quickly in light of this revelation, and the Thompson/Shannon clan have kept busy popping up on programs like Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars since the cancellation.
