Dancing With the Stars 2013: Honey Boo Boo’s Mama June Won’t Be on Season 16
It sounds like we can cross Mama June off the list of potential contestants on Dancing With the Stars 2013. The New York Daily News recently listed some people ABC was rumored to be interested in casting for Season 16 of the celebrity dancing competition. Among them was Mama June, mother of Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and co-star of TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. However, a rep for TLC told The Huffington Post that it's just an untrue rumor. So, no sequin duty for Mama June. We’re pretty relieved, especially since DWTS pros Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy have both said they don't want to see Honey Boo Boo or her mom on the show. Maks told Extra, “I don’t see Honey Boo Boo or any of her relatives having earned the right because I think it’s an honor to be on the show.”
It is an honor. But who will be chosen? Right now most of the casting rumors are about who won’t dance. We’ll get the full scoop on the real cast when the 12 couples are revealed Tuesday, February 26 on Good Morning America.
