Fans got to see Lauryn ‘Pumpkin’ Shannon in parenting made last week after her 13-year-old sister Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson went live on social media.
As Dearly previously reported, Pumpkin was granted temporary custody of Honey Boo Boo when their mother, ‘Mama June’ Shannon began having health issues and was arrested after drug paraphernalia was found in her car while she was with her boyfriend, Geno.
It remains unclear how often Honey Boo Boo gets to see either of her biological parents. However, it seems like Pumpkin, who is a mom and wife, is making sure her little sister stays out of trouble.
During the live video, the 13-year-old is seen harshly talking to, who TMZ reports, is her sister behind the camera. Honey Boo Boo first says:
“What is next? Tell me what’s f**king next, now.”
To which Pumpkin replies back saying, “I already told you, Stephanie Hayz. She wants to know if you’re having a special,” and that’s when Honey Boo Boo starts playing with what looks like a plastic knife.
After moving the object around, Honey Boo Boo bends over and pretends to snort something. That causes Pumpkin to lose her cool on Honey Boo Boo.
“Alana quit f**king doing … don’t even f**king mimic that on f**king live!!! Don’t f**king ever do that again.”
She then plays coy by saying “what?” in a shocked tone. Pumpkin added:
“What you just f**king did. Act like a f**king idiot on Live. That’s why you don’t go f**king live on your Instagram.”
It’s unclear where Honey Boo Boo learned how to snort something, or if she ever saw someone doing such a thing.
As Dearly previously reported, on their reality show “Mama June: From Not to Hot,” the teen was in tears during an intervention they coordinated for their mother. She admitted that she was scared of her mom:
“Mama, I would love to come home and stay with you. Tell you about my day, but I can’t do that because I’m scared. I’m not even going to lie to you, I’m scared to stay at your house.”
She added, “I don’t really have a dad. And I thought, well maybe mama won’t be there for me. And basically, it’s like my sister is my mom now.”
And it seems like Pumpkin is doing the best she can.
