The popular reality TV star, Mama June, who shot to fame on TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”, and then during her weight loss journey in “From Not to Hot”, says that she’s planning to host an x-rated virtual bingo party that will feature adult novelty toys and male strippers.
Mama June (a.k.a. June Shannon) announced her saucy plans on her Facebook page late last week, and invited all of her “crazy, freaky and wild fans” aged 18 and older to stop being “bored at home” and join her and DJ Rockstar Aaron for a virtual online bingo party.
US based DJ Rockstar Aaron’s risqué virtual bingo events run every Monday at 7 PM and every Thursday at 8 PM (MST), and people from anywhere in the world can join in the fun as cards are emailed and any non-cash prizes can be shipped to the lucky winners. It’s also free to take part.
Mama June has been criticised in the past for her unhealthy lifestyle and unconventional parenting skills. However, in recent months, the mum-of-four has been in rehab to receive help for a crack addiction.
June has also quit drinking, and after undergoing gastric surgery in 2016 has managed to shed 300 pounds.
Mama June is also a firm fan of all things bingo, which she describes as “my all-time favourite sport”, and one of her famous phrases that she coined on “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” is “bingo face”. The phrase refers to the way that June scrunches her face up as she squints due to her poor eyesight.
June says that bingo is not an “old person’s sport” and that she’s been playing it since the tender age of 10. Despite her efforts to get Honey Boo Boo to embrace bingo games in the same way, June’s famous daughter is more interested in playing with the pink markers than aiming for a full house.
Let’s hope that the fans rally round and that this does not do the reputation of the humble bingo game more harm than good!
