Mama June: From Not to Hot – Pumpkin Against Ella Efird Doing Pageants
Mama June: From Not to Hot updates recall Pumpkin did not want her little girl Ella Efird to participate in beauty pageants. Of course, she had a front-row seat to how that lifestyle can affect a child. Remember, she watched her little sister Alana (Honey Boo Boo) Thompson go through it.
Mama June Shannon had Alana in Toddlers in Tiaras years ago and that’s where she got her fame. However, Mama spoiled her and she never had a “normal” childhood because she was always in the spotlight. Of course, that’s not something Pumpkin wants for her own child. But, something shifts and she changes her mind.
