Mama June Shannon Hospitalized After Collapsing
Mama June was hospitalized on Wednesday after collapsing, almost exactly a year after winding up in the hospital with pneumonia.
The reality star, whose real name is June Shannon, was reportedly feeling ill throughout the day and vomited multiple times, despite not eating much. She is said to have first collapsed after walking down the stairs in her Georgia home. But after regaining consciousness, she had several fainting spells, according to TMZ.
The site says Mama June was then rushed to the hospital by her daughter Pumpkin. She is currently undergoing tests and will have a CT scan. The “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” star has been working on losing weight for the last few months, but it’s unclear if that is related to her medical emergency. A rep tells Gossip Cop, “We don’t have any updated info on June as of now. She is currently in the hospital.”
Oddly, the health crisis comes nearly a year after Mama June was hospitalized with pneumonia. As Gossip Cop reported at the time, the former TLC personality’s temperature spiked to 103 degrees, leading to a trip to the emergency room. Doctors determined pneumonia and dehydration were the cause, and put her on bed rest.
Since “Honey Boo Boo” was canceled, Mama June has returned to TV on “Marriage Boot Camp” with Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson, the father of their daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson. The series taped last year, and finished airing less than two weeks ago. Gossip Cop wishes Mama June a speedy recovery.
