Mama June goes makeup-free in new video to thank fans for support TEN YEARS after reality show debut
MAMA June went make-up free in her new video as she thanked fans for their support over ten years after her reality television debut.
Mama June and her daughter Alana Thompson, also known as Honey Boo Boo from the reality show Toddler and Tiara's, were unmasked as the beach ball on The Masked Singer.
The Masked Singer is a singing competition featuring contestants disguised in various costumes where the contestant with the lowest votes each week has to reveal themselves.
The Beach Ball was forced to reveal its identity earlier in November, which was Mama June and Alana.
In her TikTok video, Mama June said: "Maybe some of y'all caught The Masked Singer tonight and figured out the beach ball was us before we got unmasked."
She continued, filming make-up free at home and cozied up in a sweatshirt: "I just want to say thank you so very much.
"It's been ten amazing years, but you know why?
"It's been amazing fans like all of y'all out there that support us in every and each project that we do."
The reality star encouraged her fans to watch the show.
Mama June also teased that she doesn't know the celebrity identities of any other contestants, even after being eliminated from the show.
Last week Wednesday, Alana and Mama June were slammed as the "worst performers EVER" in the show's history as they were eliminated.
In the previous episode of The Masked Singer, the Beach Ball made its debut as the final wildcard contestant of the season.
It was soon revealed that the Beach Ball was actually two women competing together.
Following their performance of Miley Cyrus’ Party in the USA, the Beach Ball received the lowest votes and host Nick Cannon, 40, revealed they would be sent home during the Thanksgiving-themed episode.
Before their identities were revealed, the panelists took turns guessing who the voices behind the Beach Ball were.
Ken Jeong, 52, guessed the Beach Ball was Kim and Khloe Kardashian, while Jenny McCarthy, 49, said it was Jersey Shore’s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “J-Woww” Farley.
Meanwhile, Robin Thicke noted the contestants “literally brought the shore to the stage” due to the performance’s beach-themed setup.
However, the 44-year-old guessed the singers were not the Jersey Shore stars and instead were 2 Broke Girls stars Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs.
Guest judge Joel McHale, 49, insisted the singers were Snooki and J-Woww, while Nicole Scherzinger, 43, guessed it was Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo from Barb and Star.
Fans were not surprised that the pair was eliminated, as many viewers took to Twitter to criticize their singing skills.
One fan wrote: "That had to be the worst performance I ever heard on this show."
Another added: "Mama June was a tiny bit better than Honey Boo Boo but they were both tone deaf. So I see why they didn't last past tonight."
A third chimed in: "What a waste of an episode."
An additional viewer commented: "Probably the worst performance in Masked Singer history lmao. Just send them home no voting necessary."
Others slammed the show for their choice in contestants, as one person wrote: "I’ve had bowel movements that could sing and perform better than Honey Boo Boo and Mama June.
"I understand getting B and C list celebrities but, damn.
"Getting people whose fifteen minutes expired years ago is sad.
"S**t, I’m available next season."
Back in 2019, Mama June abandoned her family for troubled ex Geno Doak.
The mother has four daughters: Anna, Jessica, Pumpkin and Alana.
In an episode of Mama June: Family Crisis, Pumpkin and Mama June reunited after not seeing each other for months.
The family matriarch admitted she had done thousands of dollars worth of drugs a day.
She sold her Georgia home at a huge loss for fast cash in October 2019.
Mama June told her shocked daughter: "The only reason I sold the house, I was dead f***ing broke.
"Because you know, at that point, we were doing quite a bit.
"I mean, it was a couple ounces a day.
"Our habit was $2,500 a day, if not more."
June has been posting videos from Florida to promote her $30 personalized video messages and other merchandise.
She was spotted pawning a diamond ring for $1,500 and on Facebook Marketplace in January 2020.
June and boyfriend Geno Doak recently wrapped up a 30-day rehab stint, while June revealed she is now living the "sober life."
Although June feels confident with her new sober lifestyle, the couple's therapist exclusively told The Sun that a relapse "is happening."
As mentioned, Mama June and Honey Boo Boo performed together on the Masked Singer in November 2021, so it appears their rift has now been mended.
Mama June was spotted with her boy toy Jordan McCollum on a trip to Las Vegas back in September.
In The Sun’s exclusive photos, the couple were seen exiting a stretch limousine at their luxury, VIP hotel accommodations on the strip in Sin City.
The pair looked particularly glammed up for their big night in the city.
Their whirlwind trip began last Wednesday when an unemployed Jordan took to TikTok to brag about the getaway he was about to embark on.
He told his over one-million followers that he was flying from Alabama, to Atlanta and then onto Las Vegas.
The 24-year-old did not however share his reasoning for flying all the way east to Atlanta only to go all the way back west to land in Las Vegas, when he bragged about his big trip.
Presumably the young man was picking up a nearly blind June from her home state, before they both boarded a first-class flight to Vegas.
Once they landed; the couple checked in at the VIP desk at the Bellagio for their four-night escape together.
Jordan quickly got doubly lucky when hit a $2,600 at a slot machine on their first night in town.
The pair visited Cesar's casino together on Thursday morning, before they hopped in the limo which took them out of town for an excursion to the Hoover Dam.
