mama juneSay what you will about the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo clan, but you have to appreciate the fact they are incredibly honest about their lives. They don't care if we think Sketti is gross or that mud boggin' seems like a crazy, dangerous sport.

But as open as they are, they still manage to surprise us sometimes. Take the latest confession from mama June Shannon about her relationship with baby daddy Sugar Bear. It's a doozy!

When The Huffington Post recently asked her what's the silliest thing she's ever lied about, she revealed:

Spending more money on something that I bought for Sugar Bear than I actually did. There are times when he’s asked about how much pageants cost. I’ll lie and tell him it’s less because I think it’s important to spend the money on Alana and do what makes her happy. Sugar Bear also doesn't know anything about clothes, so if I buy him something nice, I won’t tell him that I got it on discount.

So basically, honestly isn't always the best policy when it comes to mama’s nine-year romance with Sugar Bear. Clearly his ignorance is her bliss. Though, it's a pretty smart move on her part. In fact, we all have been guilty of this at one time or another, haven't we? A fib about how much you occasionally spend is one of those little white lies that can help a relationship. Why risk getting into an argument because you spend too much or making your partner feel bad because you spent too little on their gift? Smart move, Mama. Smart move.

What do you think of Mama's little white lie?
