june/honey boo boo

Fans got quite a fright on the Honey Boo Boo Halloween special that aired this week. Since dyeing her scraggly gray locks, Alana's mama June Shannon fancies herself a "blonde bombshell" and dressed up as Marilyn Monroe for the holiday. You read that correctly. Not Marilyn Manson. Marilyn Monroe. But that's not even the craziest part of this whole story.

The "smexy" getup was all Sugar Bear's idea. "Her new blonde hair gave me a great idea so I ordered a costume for June," he admitted. While some might think Cousin It or Chewbacca might have been a better choice, he is over the moon about her look. And to be honest, that's actually nice to see with so many other tragic reality TV couples. "Hubba hubba," he moans. "When June came out as Marilyn Monroe, I instantly became Horny Bear." While your first reaction may be "EWWWWWWWWWWW," how cool is it that Sugar Bear loves his big woman?

That said, it was a weird, uncomfortable moment for everyone except him. He was excited. Her kids, not so much. "She looked like a Neapolitan ice cream," says daughter Chickadee. "Some part was pink, some part was chocolate, some parts were vanilla. She looked raunchy. I didn't want to eat that ice cream." I am not even sure what that means, but I am pretty sure I agree. Take a look for yourself!

What do you think would have been a better costume choice for Mama June?
