Mama June is ready to face her fear of mayonnaise – sort of.

In a clip from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo the 33-year-old decides to see a hypnotherapist about her lifelong phobia, but she doesn't seem to understand what the treatment entails.

"Hypnosis works supposedly by somebody getting into your mind and getting you relaxed or whatever," she says, before warning, "I mean, if this hypnotist brings out a shrunken head, I mean, if she tries to put, like, some, like, spell on me, I'm outta here."

Once inside the office she explains her problem with mayonnaise.

Kim Kardashian lives large, but she's got nothing on Mama June.

On Thursday's Halloween special for Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, the Thompson family dress up as reality TV's most famous clan, and as Mama June (posing as Kanye West's fiancée) told PEOPLE back in October, "Everyone seems to compare our family to them. Now we're just the redneck version."

But that's not where the comparisons end. Mama June sees Kim as a kindred spirit.

"Me and Kim are similar, uh, because we have kids out of wedlock," she says in the episode airing on TLC Thursday. "We both got big asses, but Kim ain't got s--- on this, baby. This is the bigger version, bigger and better."

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo ... and here comes Mama June's sex talk!

The new season of TLC's hit show premieres Thursday with back-to-back episodes, including one titled "The Birds and The Bees."

"A girl meets this boy, they fall in love ... and the boys try to get in girls' fruit loops," Mama June, whose real name is June Shannon, tells daughters Lauryn (Pumpkin), Anna (Chickadee) and Jessica (Chubbs).

Cereal, it is not. "A fruit loop is your biscuit, a woman's vaginal area ... your privatal area," she explains as part of an awkward talk that sends her running to the bathroom with a case of the nerves.

Dear Honey Boo Boo Child:

When Here Comes Honey Boo Boo debuted on TLC last summer, I thought the sky was falling and that civilization was ending. The show seemed to expose viewers to a new low in what passes for American life on TV – I never got over that local swimming hole with the warning sign about flesh-eating bacteria – and at the same time I thought it exploited you, your Mama June and your siblings.

I thought it was especially condescending, and insulting, for the show's producers to supply subtitles translating your dialogue, even though your family's Southern accents are admittedly jowl-shakingly thick.

It's not pink, nor is it Glitzy, but it'll have to do.

The 7½-year-old star of TLC's Here Comes Honey Boo Boo added a new member to her eclectic petting zoo on Tuesday: a hermit crab named Hermie.

Hailing from Panama City Beach, Fla., the crawly crustacean is barely perceptible in the pageant queen's Facebook photo, but honestly, we think it's probably just hiding from the inevitable limelight it's soon to receive.
