“Mama June” Shannon and her most famous daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson struck poses on the red carpet Tuesday night at the local launch event for “Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta.”
Mama June wore a glamorous red gown to show off her newly sleek physique, the result of her most recent reality-show gig, “Mama June: From Not to Hot.”
WE tv hosted the red-carpet event at Woodruff Arts Center.
It will feature Bow Wow, Shaniah Mauldin (daughter of Jermaine Dupri), Reginae Carter (daughter of Lil Wayne and Toya Wright), Zonnique Pullins (daughter of T.I. & Tiny), Brandon Barnes (son of Debra Antney and Waka Flocka Flame’s brother) and Ayana Fite (daughter of DJ Hurricane).
WE-TV’s “Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta” is a natural spin-off from the Los Angeles version that debuted last year and did well. That cast featured Romeo and the kids of Rev. Run, James DeBarge, Jam Master Jay, Treach, Sandra “Pepa” Denton and Damon Dash and already has a third season set to debut in July.
Atlanta’s version, which debuts Thursday at 10 p.m. after “Braxton Family Values,” also features one big name in 29-year-old actor and rap star Bow Wow (Shad Moss), who has been living in Los Angeles for a long time but has roots in Atlanta where he became a kid star. For the show, he comes back to his hometown to promote a mixtape and possibly produce his first album in six years with his former mentor and father figure Jermaine Dupri.”
