With her commitment ceremony to long term partner Sugar Bear just a month away, June Shannon needed a dress and enlisted her daughters to help her make the all-important choice.
However, the redneck “replica” of Kate Middleton’s royal wedding dress didn’t exactly fit as June Shannon hoped.
“This is what Kate wore when she married Prince William,” Mama June declared to her daughters, emerging from the changing room in the lace long sleeved creation during last episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
However, Mama June soon realized the gown didn’t really flatter her buxom figure.
“As a little girl, I never dreamed of having that white princess gown,” she admitted.
“I don’t want a white dress, It’s really not really a true wedding and also I’m not pure so…”
The larger than life star had to be laced into another dress by the store’s assistants before leaving empty handed.
The family’s excess weight was clearly bothering the family matriarch who attempted to put her brood on the cabbage soup diet in a last ditch attempt to shed some pounds before her big day.
“If I eat this, I better lose 50 lbs instantly,” June Shannon declared with some distaste.
“The soup’s been cooking for a while and it smells like wet gym shorts.”
June Shannon’s 16-year-old daughter Jessica “Chubbs” was equally unimpressed.
“It looks like someone threw up in a bowl,” she said, wrinkling her nose up at the stew of vegetables.
All the rest of the girls bottled out of trying the healthy concoction except for Pumpkin who proceeded to spit out the soup as soon as she tasted it.
June is later seen rushing to the bathroom in order to throw it up.
“I like non healthy food because it tastes good,” Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson declared, showing her stomach to the camera.
“Last time I ate a salad was never.”
Meanwhile, June Shannon tried to salvage her family’s reputation, telling viewers her clan are “big boned”.
“We don’t eat a lot of fried food. We eat baked food,” June Shannon maintained, while putting hunks of butter on top of a tray full of meat chops.
Meanwhile, as the ceremony approached, Sugar Bear and June Shannon worried their dance moves might not be up to scratch and agree to practice at a dance class.
Mama June also begins to pen invitations, using old thank you cards for the task.
“You are invited to a celebration of love,” she began to write, before sneezing with stress.
“I’m using old thank you cards to send out invitations. As long as you have food people will come.”
But the amount of organization wasn’t the least of her concerns.
With June Shannon a self confessed marriage phobic, she started to have commitment ceremony jitters.
“I’m a little nervous about doing it,” she confessed.
“One day I want to do it and another day I don’t want to do it kind of situation. I don’t even really want to do it anymore.”
And Sugar Bear also appeared concerned.
“I just hope June shows up on our wedding day,” Mike Thompson fretted.
