Honey Boo Boo’s parents separate

Apparently, a successful marriage isn’t all cheese balls and go-go juice.

June Shannon, aka “Mama June” from the TLC series “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” has split from husband Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson just two years after getting married.

Reportedly, “Sugar Bear” had posted profiles on several dating websites.  I would assume that’s a pretty big red flag in any relationship.

Said June “Never settle for a man who doesn’t treat you right.  If a guy doesn’t love everything about you, move on! There are plenty of other fish in the sea.”

As for the star of the show about a former child beauty queen…remember the time Brad Paisley wrote a new theme song?  You can hear, and see the video for it, here!

A race was held between a horse and a locomotive! 

Tom Thumb, the first locomotive built in America, legit raced a horse. It was a 9 mile long race, and it took place between  between Riley’s Tavern and Baltimore. This should’ve been an easy victory for the train, right? It’s common sense
