“Mama June comes out,” or so that is what the headlines say today. If you know anything at all about Mama June and the rest of her brood, you are probably asking yourself, what did Mama June come out of? Was it a bus, a limo, a mud wrestling match, a plane, a ping-pong tournament or maybe a chicken plucking contest? No, none of the above, she actually “came out!”
That is because what she came out with was not at all expected. Mama June and her daughter Pumpkin have both come out and shared that this mother-daughter duo are bisexual, according to AOL News on April 24. Mama June, Pumpkin and the rest of her brood star in the reality show “Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo.”
Mama June, who is the mother of child star, Honey Boo-Boo, appeared on “Inside Edition” with her daughter Pumpkin and it was Pumpkin who spilled the news about her mother. It was Pumpkin who came to this nationally televised show to reveal that she is bisexual, but apparently she couldn’t contain herself from all the excitement and offered up her mom’s sexual preference too. So it really was the daughter outing herself and her mom!
Pumpkin told Jim Moret of “Inside Edition” during the show that “She is gay, too! June is gay, too!” That is when June corrected her daughter and said, “Bisexual.” It was Pumpkin’s night to shine with her reveal and Mama June was just on the show with her for support, but it turned into a mother and daughter outing.
Pumpkin, Honey Boo-Boo and Mama June are currently starring in a music video and they were on the show to talk about that among other things. Pumpkin told Moret that she is attracted to females and she’s also attracted to males. She then told the host, “You cannot hide who you truly are.”
Apparently Pumpkin did not want to hide who she is and she wasn’t going to let her mother hide who she is either! When Moret turned to June and asked her if she was attracted to both men and women, she said, “I am, yes.”
According to Hollywood Life Mama June said she’s fooled around with three women, but she never went “pro.” She said she kept it in the “minor league.” This was her explanation of never having a relationship with a female, she just dabbled by fooling around.
Mama June, who was recently separated from Honey Boo-Boo’s father, has dropped a bit of information that no one expected. The host asked her if she fears the backlash that may come along with this reveal because of the conservative area of the country from where she hails. Mama June said “I look at it this way, haters are going to hate!”
Mama June admits that she’s “fooled around” with women, but has never had a serious relationship with the same sex. Pumpkin, who is currently single, is hoping to get back with her ex-girlfriend. She wrote her a personal text, which she read for the nationwide audience.
The text said: “I am asking for another chance with you because I want to prove to you that I can treat you the way you deserve.” It looks like not much stays hidden in this family! It is great that this mother and daughter have the support from one another. They can now be who they really are in public without all kinds of twisted rumors popping up in the media.
