Family matriarch "Mama" June Shannon, who has parted ways with Mike "Sugar Bear" Shannon romantically, posted the news on her public Facebook page. She and most of her girls including former beauty pageant queen Alana HBB Shannon now live in Hampton. Daughter Jessica remains in McIntyre to complete her senior year of high school.

Daughter "Pumpkin" (Lauryn) continues recovering from injuries she received in a car accident and will be homeschooled. Daughter Anna, the victim of Mama June's alleged paramour, has struck out on her own.

June says she and Sugar Bear remain civil and he'll continue to see the girls (Alana is his biological child but he was a father figure to the others).

The family's reality show career came to a halt amid revelations June was dating a convicted child molester, a claim she denied. A spate of other televised appearances, such as a visit with Dr. Phil, didn't help.

But, June remains positive moving forward. Here's the entire message:
