HONEY Boo Boo’s stepmom Jennifer forbids her dad Sugar Bear from seeing her in a sneak peek from Friday’s new episode.
In an upcoming Mama June: Road to Redemption, Jennifer Lamb puts her foot down and demands her husband stop thinking about his daughter as she only causes him “stress.”
The exclusive clip shows the couple arguing over Honey Boo Boo, whose real name is Alana Thompson, after Sugar Bear says he’s been thinking a lot about his estranged daughter.
After delivering her husband Mike a “healthy” dinner on the couch, Jennifer stares at him in anger when he mentions Alana, pretending not to hear him clearly and asking, “Who?”
“Alana,” he tells her again.
This confirmation of who he’s talking about only gets her even more upset, with her hammering him with questions.
She pointedly asks him: “Really? Really? You mean that child that stood out there and hollered and screamed? You’re thinking about her?”
Sitting on the couch with his arms crossed and the meal his wife just placed in front of him, Honey Boo Boo’s dad simply replies, “Yeah.”
Collecting himself, he continues: “You know, I’m a diabetic and the doctor says it’s hereditary and, you know, there’s the possibility that she might get it.”
This doesn’t sway Jennifer one bit, and she sneers at him, “Who cares? Does she give a sh*t about you?”
Mike quickly agrees that Alana, 15, “probably” doesn’t care about him, but he doesn’t think their relationship is “beyond repair.”
Mama June’s ex says he wants to try to fix their father-daughter bond, even if it might not work.
“So, let’s back this sh*tt up real quick,” his wife says while standing over him. “All they do is bring you stress. I’m tell you right now, she gonna kill you.
“You don’t need that in your life. You need to let it go.”
While sitting together for a camera confessional, Jenniferr insists that she’s always been very nice to Honey Boo Boo and tried hard to make her happy.
“No one has fought any harder for Alana than I have,” she says. “All I wanted was the best for her.”
She adds, turning toward her husband at one point: “We even got a bigger house, and then she comes to the yard telling you she don’t want to see you, that you don’t care for her.
“And you really wanna go crawling back to her? Over my dead body. Or maybe yours.”
Back in their living room, in the heat of their argument, Jennifer looks to be at the end of the rope and defeatedly tells her husband: “You know what? I’m done with it. If you choose them over me, go live with them“
Mike tells her that he’s “not choosing nobody,” but that response doesn’t appear to be what Jennifer wanted to hear, and she storms out of the room.
Mama June told The Sun that her daughter Honey Boo Boo still lives with her sister Pumpkin, as her dad Sugar Bear “doesn’t speak” to the teen.
Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson has been in her sister Lauryn “Pumpkin” Efird’s care ever since June “Mama June” Shannon went on a drug-fueled bender with her boyfriend Geno Doak in 2019.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, June said her daughter will “definitely be staying with Pumpkin where she is currently today.”
She told The Sun: “Hell no! The real reality of that is the only time Sugar Bear does have to do with Alana is when he’s in production. There is no communication. None, none! Besides when we are in production.”
New episodes of Mama June: Road to Redemption airs on Fridays at 9 p.m. on WEtv.
