Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’s Mama June has a more serious vision problem then what was discussed on the show. The head of the redneck reality TV family that America has fallen in love with, is legally blind.
Thanks to childhood cataracts that were not not treated property June Shannon, a.k.a. Mama June, is now legally blind. If you have seen the show, you know that her eye sight has been a big topic this season and it turns out that was not just a ploy to get ratings. Her vision is blurry and she has to be very close to an object before she can see it. Even then she may be not be able to see the object the way that a person with perfect vision would.
The mother of Honey Boo Boo is no longer allowed to have a drivers license, due to the severe lack of vision. As fans have seen on the show she squints a lot and when reading her cell phone text, she has to hold it very close to her face. Although can still see, no doubt the severe impairment of her eye-sight will cause the family to make some changes. But that doesn’t mean she can’t go on to live a normal life and do most of things she has done in the past. Plus that family may be obnoxious but they certainly do stick by each other, so there is no doubt June will have a slew of support.
Mama June is a woman who won’t let a setback like this get her down. She has her family to raise and a hit TV show to shoot. I think she has a great outlook on the fame her family has endured over the past couple of years, it could all go away. June and the rest of her family seem to be very unfazed by fame so far. I have to say I am a big fan of the show and this family. Sure they can be obnoxious and are totally redneck but that is what I like about them.
