Honey Boo Boo Star Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon Struck By Lightning! (VIDEO)
In last night’s episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, we found out a fun fact about one of Alana’s sisters — she was struck by lightning in a freak accident when she was younger! So, who was it? Lauryn, or more commonly known as Pumpkin!
As June and Honey Boo Boo explain, Pumpkin was electrocuted while playing video games during a storm when lightning hit their house. And according to June, “Pumpkin's never been the same since she got her brain fried.” You’ve gotta see the clip to believe it, though. Alana tells the story much better than we ever could!
For some reason, we’re not surprised Pumpkin had the bad luck of being struck by lightning, especially after she was the one who got hit in the eye with Sugar Bear’s keys last year, which resulted in a serious scratch on her cornea.
Another interesting tidbit about Pumpkin from last night’s episode? She takes on a massive food challenge, and we can’t tell if we’re hungry or nauseous after seeing her chow down on what has to be the world’s biggest sandwich.
