Mama June is moving on after her split from Sugar Bear last month – but the man she is now dating may have just put the future of the family's TLC show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, in jeopardy.
According to TMZ, June Shannon, 35, has moved on after her separation with a new man. The problem?
PEOPLE has confirmed that the man was convicted for aggravated child molestation and was imprisoned in June 2004, making him "a cause for serious concern by the network," a source close to the show tells PEOPLE.

In hindsight, it seems obvious that Honey Boo Boo wasn't going to be a big fan of the "traditional" interview.
The reality television star guest-starred on The Tonight Show Wednesday, and while she seemed reticent to give into the typical question-and-answer format, she was more than happy to do a cheerleading routine with host Jimmy Fallon.

If there's one of Tori Spelling's former Beverly Hills, 90210 costars who isn't tuning into her dramatic True Tori docureality series, it's most likely Luke Perry.
"I think reality TV sucks for the most part," the veteran actor, 47, said when he sat down with PEOPLE last week.
"It's put so many writers out of business and put so many actors out of work that it's changed the face of entertainment. As a guy who has grown up making his living making primetime television – get that reality s––– out of here and give more writers and actors a chance to make shows that people will watch."

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.
