Mama June is ready to do some "bachelorettin'."
In a sneak peek from TLC's Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, matriarch June Shannon, 33, and her girlfriends head to Wild Bill's in Atlanta for a night of drinking, dancing, flirting and all-around partying to celebrate her commitment ceremony.
Sporting a wedding veil, a "Mrs. Sugar Bear" T-shirt and at times a candy necklace and a pink, feather boa, the reality star throws back shots and shows off some serious dance moves.

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.
But here we are a year later, with season 2 starting Wednesday, and I redneckognize (as you'd say) that you meant and did no harm. All the Boo-hating was a big to-boo about nothing. For instance ...

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.

Landlubbers no more!
Mama June, along with daughters Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon and Kaitlyn Shannon, took a dip in the ocean Monday in Tybee Island, Ga. – and apparently had a Baywatch-inspired good time alongside her husband Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson, Lee "Uncle Poodle" Thompson, and older daughters Anna "Chickadee" Shannon and Jessica "Chubbs" Shannon.

The two rival reality show stars each opt for the same bold trend

The most-coveted accessory this weekend? A hat, hands down. But in close second: a wet nap or some rawhide, depending on whether you were partying with Mama June or Kevin Spacey.
5. If the Hat Fits ... Dear Princess Beatrice, we've spent precisely two years and six days thinking about that fascinator you wore to the royal wedding. Good news: We think we're finally ready to move on from all that pretzel-like, bow-ish goodness, and we have Miranda Lambert to thank. The Southern belle-worthy hat she wore to Saturday's Kentucky Derby in a nod to tradition ruined our college baseball caps forever, while Coco Rocha left us wondering what would happen if we showed up to work wearing orchids on our heads.
(Girls, we tip our hats to you)

They had vows, a cake, a camouflage gown and all their family and friends present, but Here Comes Honey Boo Boo stars Mama June (June Shannon, 33) and Sugar Bear, 41, won't say whether they've actually gotten married – or just recommitted to each other.
On Sunday, friends and family, including Honey Boo Boo (Alana Thompson, 7) and big sisters Pumpkin, Chickadee and Chubbs, joined the duo in their Georgia backyard for a ceremony to celebrate their love, followed by a rowdy family barbecue on what happens to be Cinco de Mayo.
"The day was very special mostly because my girls were able to take part in it," says June. "I felt like it was important for them to see this moment and celebrate my love for Sugar Bear."

Who's that lady?
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo's Mama June dramatically dressed up her newly slimmer bod Saturday at the GLAAD Awards, where her show was nominated for best reality series.
Mom to Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, June Shannon, 33, looked chic and sophisticated (or as she'd put it, "smexy!") in a black wrap dress, plenty of jewelry and tasteful makeup.
