The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Halloween special airs tomorrow on TLC and we have a brand new sneak peek of the show for you. The Honey Boo Boo Halloween video preview reveals Mama June Thompson‘s ultimate horror any time of the year, not just Halloween, is… mayonnaise!
In a new Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Halloween preview, Mama June Shannon confesses she is weirdly terrified of mayonnaise. Apparently the condiment actually makes her “flesh crawl” to think about.
Apparently it is the raw ingredient that freaks Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson‘s mom out. She will eat foods with mayonnaise in them — as long as she didn’t have to touch the condiment or watch someone else using it.
“I cannot stand mayonnaise,” Mama June says in the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Halloween preview. “Yes, it is in my house, and this is gonna sound weird. I do eat potato salad. I will eat a tuna fish salad. But I will not eat it if I made it. If somebody else makes it I will eat it. But if I watch somebody make it, I can’t do it.”
The Mama June mayonnaise phobia seems to come about because her babysitter when she was little used to force feed it to her all the time. “We ate mayonnaise sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, dinners, snack — every time,” Mama says with a shiver. “I can’t talk about it, it’s so… ugh.”
Mama June’s daughters think the best way to get her mom over her mayonnaise fear is to shove a huge bowl of it in her face. “I think it’s stupid that you’re scared of mayonnaise, Mama,” Lauryn “Pumpkin” Thompson says. “I mean, seriously, it’s mayonnaise. … C’mon. That’s like ketchup, but it’s just white.”
As the bowl edges ever closer to Mama June’s mayonnaise fearing eyes in the preview, she totally freaks out. “My anxiety level is up like beyond out the roof. I mean, like my chest is real tight. My throat feels like it’s gonna close up,” she says about the experience in the Honey Boo Boo Halloween video preview. Covering her eyes, she tells the kids they “gotta get that outta there, c’mon now… I’m gonna go into full panic attack… get it out of here for real!”
This, of course, prompts the show’s namesake to pipe up adorably with, “Mama was turning white — just like mayonnaise!”
The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Halloween special airs on TLC at 9PM ET on Sunday.
