Honey Boo Boo Squirms as Mama June, Sugar Bear Rehearse Wedding Dance
Mooooom! Outspoken pint-sized pageant queen Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson is the one who's worried about being embarrassed by her parents, Mama June Shannon and Sugar Bear, in a sneak peek of an upcoming episode of her hit reality show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
In the clip, the 7-year-old is busy typing away on a laptop, asking Mama June how to spell "wedding," when the topic of first dances comes up.
"Have you and Sugar Bear ever danced, Mama?" Anna "Chickadee" Shannon, 18, asks the bride-to-be.
"No! Sugar Bear ain't have no rhythm," Mama responds, with Sugar Bear reclining comfortably in a nearby chair. When her daughter points out that "you don't have rhythm either," the good-humored mother quips, "I got more than Sugar Bear!"
To prove her daughters wrong, Mama gets up (at Sugar Bear's kind request, of course), and the two proceed to jokingly dance around the room.
"How I'm going to dance with June is I'm just gonna put my arms around her and go for a ride," Mama's main squeeze tells the cameras, later telling the girls with a grin, "Dancing is all about hand placement."
Honey Boo Boo isn't too convinced that dancing is all that simple, however.
"Sugar Bear and Mama better take a dance class before the commitment ceremony," she says during her confessional. "I don't want to be embarrassed."
The happy couple tied the knot during a filmed ceremony in Georgia on Sunday, May 5, with flower-girl Honey Boo Boo in a neon pink-and-orange dress, and Mama in an over-the-top camouflage gown.
