Honey Boo Boo’s Mom, June Shannon, Is Absolutely Terrified Of Mayonnaise – Weird Or What?

Honey Boo Boo's Mom, June Shannon, Is Absolutely Terrified Of Mayonnaise - Weird Or What?

There are rather strange phobias and fears out there. Some people are afraid of the clichéd dangers – heights, snakes, spiders, enclosed spaces, etc. – while others have more interesting and absurd fears – pennies, Friday the 13th, shampoo, little people, etc. I, for one – breaking the fourth wall here – am absolutely terrified of soup. It instills a fear in me that no one is able to understand. Thinking about soup, looking at soup, talking about soup, and even writing about soup terrifies me so much that I break out into a cold sweat and crawl under a table. However, I am not alone. Honey Boo Boo’s mom, June Shannon, has an intense fear of mayonnaise.

In the upcoming Halloween episode of TLC’s breakout hit show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Mama June’s kids try to help her overcome her deadly fear of mayo. Shannon talks about her fear in an Us Weekly promo clip of the upcoming episode, saying, “The reason why is because when I was growing up, the babysitter I had, we ate mayonnaise sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack. I can’t talk about it. It is making my flesh crawl.” You’re not alone, June, you’re not alone… Shannon will, however, “eat potato salad or tuna salad with mayonnaise if someone else makes it and she can’t see the mayo.

Her daughter, Jessica “Chubbs”, said to her mom, “I think it’s stupid that you’re scared of mayonnaise, Mama. I mean seriously, it’s mayonnaise. It’s white, and it’s mayonnaise. C’mon. That’s like ketchup, but it’s just white.

Side soup dish: A fear of food is not that uncommon. I once knew a woman who was afraid of anything tomato – she believed it looked like blood. The brain is weird like that. Don’t giggle – I know you want to, but don’t.

Soup is not to be trusted – it’s like the Teresa Giudice of foodstuffs.

    The fact that this is news just shows how sad society has become, and seriously all these people with stupid phobias, most of the time it is just a call for attention, soup, i mean seriously what is there to be afraid of, it is colored water for gods sake, do you have a fear of other liquids? I would not go and see a psychologist for this i would sit myself down and give myself a good talking to, even bringing up such a silly phobia is part of a bigger underlying need for attention.

    Imagine yourself caring about the likes and dislikes of some random annoying redneck in the grocery store, because that’s what you’re doing. Pick any random person off of the streets and you could make a show about them, but that doesn’t mean you should. Actually, it makes the network a lot of money, so who am I to complain? Good job!
