If you’re like us, when word spread last year that Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’s hilariously candid Mama June was considering a stint on Dancing With the Stars, you probably were totally pumped. What could be better than adding a little brash, redneck quality to the race for the mirror ball — one that’s usually littered with aspiring Disney pop stars and ‘80s sitcom stars?
And though Alana’s mama didn’t turn out to be one of the contestants on Season 18’s roster, we still held out hope that maybe she was waiting for her TLC reality show to be in its off-season. But now June is finally addressing the rumors herself, and it doesn’t sound like we’ll be seeing her try her hand at the foxtrot any time soon.
In a recent interview with DigitalSpy, Mama June was honest about what she’s most afraid of with DWTS: the body-clinging costumes.
"I don't think I would do Dancing With the Stars because those outfits, I'm sorry, my booty — badonkadonk — would fall out of it,” the curvy lady admits. Aww come on June, plenty of plus-size gals have graced the dance floors — you could totally do it!
But apparently her reservations don’t end at the revealing ensembles. The Coupon Queen is also wary of hurting herself, which is fair considering the number of people who’ve suffered injuries over the years.
“It would be my luck I would break my neck, break a heel and be showing all my junk on TV,” Mama June says with a laugh. “Uh-uh - it ain't happening! No, no, no. I'll leave that to the other celebrities."
Fair enough! For now we’ll have to settle for our weekly dose of June hilariously nicknaming private parts “Tic Tacs” and “Skittles” and tagging along on her daughters’ double dates. We love you just the way you are, lady!
