"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" stars Mama June and her longtime partner Sugar Bear have made some shocking revelations on "Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars," which will be aired on 4 December.
The duo decided to attend the show to mend their relationship, and according to Mama June, whose real name is June Shannon, fans will see a different side of Sugar Bear (real name Mike Thompson).
"People are gonna see a side of Sugar Bear they didn't see on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," Shannon told TooFab in a joint interview with Sugar Bear. "I think the fans are gonna be shocked a little bit, people in the house were even shocked because they were fans of the show. I just told him to go in there and be open and honest, it's not a vacation."
Thompson opened up about the cheating scandal that caused a strain in their relationship, saying his infidelity surpassed browsing online dating sites. Apparently he had an affair with a co-worker's wife.
News of Sugar Bear's cheating scandal grabbed media headlines in September 2014 when TMZ reported that Mama June had kicked him out of the house after she caught him surfing online dating websites.
"It was really hurtful because... it was a good friend of ours that we've known for quite some time. The woman had been to dinner several times," Mama June explained.
"I told him, a lot of times, people aren't liking you for Mike Thompson, they're liking you because, Sugar Bear, you're Honey Boo Boo's dad. You gotta realize who's really there for you, and who's a fanatic and just wants to say 'Oh my God, I slept with Sugar Bear.'"
Sadly, their time on the reality show did not help mend their relationship. Mama June told the media outlet that they are still living separately as they haven't been able to regain the trust they lost.
"We are still living separate," Shannon told Toofab. "We see each other on the weekend and there's some things he still needs to work on. The trust is still not there 100%. I still tell him, in the house you have to be honest no matter what the consequences are."
