Doak and Shannon have been dating for the last three years. In the season 2 finale of From Hot to Not June proposed to Doak (though he hasn’t said yes yet.)
Mama June rose to fame in TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, which showed June raising pageant princess Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and serving “sketti” –noodles soaked in butter and ketchup.
The show was cancelled in 2014 but the reality star returned to TV in 2017 on We TV’s “Mama June: From Not to Hot,” which documented her more than 300-pound weight loss. In addition to surgery, June enlisted trainer Kenya Crooks to whip her into shape. Crooks, told People that June rid her kitchen of indulgences like ice cream and candy and started eating healthy foods like watermelon, grapes, and apples instead.
