Honey Boo Boo's Mama June says family is "perfect" as daughter Anna pursues own show

Although their TLC show was scrapped amid allegations the Honey Boo Boo family matriarch "Mama June" Shannon was seeing a convicted child molester, the McIntyre clan keeps on keeping on, posting regular video clips and assorted updates.

In her latest missive Mama June wishes daughter "Pumpkin" (aka Lauryn) a happy birthday and references her car accident last year as well as the family's travails and signals a wish to move forward:

"happy bday pumpkin I know we have your ups and downs and we been through so much in the last yr with your brain injury from the car on Jan 6 last yr we still have good days and bads one but I know we will make it through all of this together abd I know we r all looking forward to the new chapter of our life love ya girl as I am of all of u y'all r my rock and my everything I'm not saying we r perfect but we r our own perfect dysfunctional family that love each other without a doubt and would hurt someone if they tried 2 do anything 2 us hope u have a great day."

Mama June has never been one for a lot of punctuation.

Meanwhile estranged daughter Anna "Chickadee" Cardwell announced on her public Facebook page that she has retained a management firm and hinted at a return to television: "Well just join GRMEDIAFIRM Management maybe you will see more of me and my family," posted Anna, who seems to have inherited a disdain for punctuation.

The firm describes themselves thusly: "GR Media is an entertainment company specializing in Celebrity Management and Public Relations. We represent Reality Stars, Artists and Top Plastic Surgeons."

It's not the first suggestion of a "Honey Boo Boo" 2.0. Her "Uncle Poodle" also has hinted that something could be in the works.
