Poor Honey Boo Boo.

Thanks to a recent interview with People, Mama June Shannon revealed that ex Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson essentially has a “non-existent” relationship with their daughter, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson. How sad.

The 12-year-old confirmed the estrangement, as she added:

“He calls me every once in a while… He doesn’t really call me that much, which is kind of sad because he’s supposed to be my father and I think if he’s my father, you should call me more.”

We agree, wholeheartedly. However, as Shannon has alleged that Sugar Bear has been abusive toward the family in the past, it may be for the best that he’s MIA. (Although, we should note, Sugar Bear has denied the troubling allegations.)

Regardless, Mama June believes it is Mr. Thompson’s sole responsibility to prove to Alana that he can be a supportive and present parent. The 38-year-old TV personality explained:

“There’s so much hurt from the past that has brought us to where we’re at today, so honestly for me, he’s got to show her ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ not me ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ that he wants to step up and be a father and that he wants to do what he needs to do.”

Shannon has totally moved on from Sugar Bear though. Yes, Thompson got married to Jennifer Lamb earlier this year, but Mama June moved on thanks to her own new romance.

On finding love again, Alana’s momma spilled:

“It’s actually this person came into my life when we actually needed it, where the girls and me had lost hope in men, period. Seriously, I had been single for quite a while and I honestly wasn’t looking for anything and he wasn’t either. The truth is, he didn’t even know who Honey Boo Boo was or Mama June ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ his kids did, but he doesn’t watch reality TV, I guess he lives underneath a rock. And I love it.”

This is the first time in 15 years that Mama June is truly happy. And, according to Alana, Shannon has considered marrying her new beau. The Toddlers & Tiaras alum quipped:

“She wouldn’t be like, ├óΓé¼╦£Marry me,’ but if he did get down on one knee, she would say yes… I don’t think Mama’s ever smiled this much.”

YAY. As for more children, Mama June says it’s a big “hell no” there.

Here’s hoping Mama June and Honey Boo Boo are truly living their best lives sans Sugar Bear. *Hugs*
