Honey Boo Boo, Mama June Booed On ‘The Doctors’:
Mama June Shannon and Honey Boo Boo (Alana Thompson) first appeared on The Doctors in February to discuss the little reality TV star’s need for weight loss and her obesity. Now, after several visits from nutritionists and the show’s co-host Dr. Rachael Ross to try to help, it’s time for Honey Boo Boo and Mama June to return to the show, and June received a chorus of boos amid revelations that she wants lap band surgery for herself, reported the Daily Mail.
But an April 2 check-in from Dr. Rachael and Jeanne provided questionable results on their progress.
“There are a lot of meals that have been left over from some weeks. I’m not really sure why Mom isn’t on board but, she has expressed that they all want to eat healthier. It appears Alana is going this on her own right now.”
On the May 20 episode, Mama June and Alana tried out some recipe alternatives on the episode, but Dr. Travis Stork and Dr. Jennifer Ashton also confronted Mama June regarding her commitment to save Honey Boo Boo’s life and happiness. And June found herself booed by the audience.
Mama June, 35, has struggled with her own weight. But The Doctors focused on the fact that the nine-year-old, at four feet, six inches tall, needed to lose at least 12 pounds to overcome her obesity, with 25 pounds recommended as the ultimate goal.
But Dr. Travis was stern with Mama June at the fact that the little girl had not achieved her goals.
