The Honey Boo Boo Hall of Fame - Poster Children of America's Christian Rednecks


Honey Boo Boo's loud-mouthed mom, June Shannon, is apparently at war with her ex, Michael Ford, after he has demanded she allow him to see his estranged daughter.
Honey Boo Boo's half sister, Jessica Shannon, also know as Chubbs, is the daughter of Mr Ford, a registered sex offender once charged with sexual exploitation of a minor over the Internet.
According to The National Enquirer, he is remorseful of his 2005 crime, and has defied Ms Shannon, writing an open letter to the 15-year-old, who stars on the hit TLC show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, urging her to get in touch with him.

Mr Ford was arrested in 2005 after he contacted an undercover policeman posing as a 13-year-old girl in an online chat room.
He believed he was talking to a minor, and subsequently sent a naked  
 picture of himself along with instructions on how to perform oral sex.




 Mike Thompson
Alana Thompson was born August 28, 2005, to June Shannon and Mike Thompson, who have been together eight years but remain unmarried. They are portrayed as a Blue Collar family. Mike is said to work seven days a week in the chalk mines to support them. Thompson never graduated from high school. Shannon became pregnant with oldest daughter Anna at age 15 and had to drop out of high school. She later earned her G.E.D.
Shannon considered giving Anna up for adoption before her birth but refused to sign away her parental rights, and is sometimes criticized in the media for having four children, each with a different father. Shannon is the star of the show as much as her daughter with her extreme couponing with her family at the Piggly Wiggly, farting, sneezing, bingo playing and even her ketchup and spaghetti recipes.[clarification needed] June Shannon portrays the head of the household as a loving redneck woman. She believes the show is a success because many lower income families identify with her family.
 Michael Ford
The family lives in McIntyre, Georgia. The average family in McIntrye is below the poverty line with a median household income of $24,028. The chalk mines are the principal industry in Wilkinson Count
