Mama June & Sugar Bear Are Bringing the 'Honey Boo Boo' Family Back to TV (VIDEO)

marriage boot campJust when you thought it was safe to turn on the TV! The Honey Boo Boo family will be making a triumphant defeated and desperate return to the reality show circuit, WEtv announced today -- or at least two of its members will: "Mama June" Shannon and Mike Thompson ("Sugar Bear") will be appearing on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, slated to premiere in December.

Great news for Honey Boo Boo family fans (are there any?), but if you're not a fan, don't worry -- June and Sugar Bear won't be alone; also starring on Marriage Boot Camp will be Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici (The Bachelor), Sundy Carter and Cedric Carter (Basketball Wives: LA), and cast members from Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta and Bad Girls Club.

Of course, none of those couples have dealt with issues quite as, er, disturbing as the Honey Boo Boos have in the past few years. (In case you missed it, and I hope for your sake you did, June started dating a convicted child molester who was accused of abusing one of June's own daughters when she was just 8 years old and TLC promptly canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.)

So I would assume that June and Sugar Bear do indeed have a few issues to work on in their relationship, though honestly I didn't think they even had one anymore, and I could have sworn they weren't even married (wasn't their famously televised "wedding" really a commitment ceremony?). But, either way, this has all the makings of a classic reality TV train wreck. Just take a look:

That's a lot of emotion right there. But what's behind it? Did Sugar Bear really cheat on Mama June like she says? Were these two really badly in need of a new TV gig? Guess we'll have to wait until December to find out. (Or do we already know?)
