Onto The Next! Mama June Shannon Now Dating Her Home Remodeler!
That was fast!
As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, Mama June Shannon and her common law husband, Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson, split after failing to work out their many issues on WE tv's Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars. And now, the former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch has already replaced her longtime love with a new man!
Shannon, 36, is dating local home remodeling company owner Geno Doak, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.
According to family insiders, the couple met when 40-year-old Doak was hired to fix up her new Hampton, Georgia abode.
"They've been dating for about a month," a source told Radar. "She's really smitten."
Though the relationship is brand new, the mother of four and grandmother to two is already gushing about her romance to friends.
She even referred to her man in a January 18 post on her private Facebook page.
"Well we are safe back in Atlanta, so exhausted, so headed home to my someone special," she wrote.
A week prior, Shannon told a friend her boyfriend " is very good to me and the girls. We are happiest we have been in years!"
Like Shannon, Doak is a parent. He has a 21-year-old son, and two teen daughters.
The G & J Home Improvements CEO lives about ten miles away from Shannon in a town called Griffin.
When contacted by Radar, Doak denied knowing Shannon— though he is friends with the reality star, her daughter Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, and the 16-year-old's fiancé, Josh Elfird, 19, on Facebook.
He also "likes" Shannon's 10-year-old former pageant queen daughter, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, on the social media site.
