Honey Boo Boo's parents reveal 'random hookup' romance

Sunday night's "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" special, "You Don't Know Boo," gave viewers a chance to relieve some of the highlights (or for those who aren't fans, lowlights) of the series so far. Mixed in with the familiar scenes were some all-new gems -- for instance, the story of just how Mama June and Sugar Bear, aka Honey Boo Boo's parents, first met.

"Me and Sugar Bear met out of a chat room off the Internet," June revealed. "It was just supposed to be a random hookup thing, and here we go nine years later and a kid."

Sugar Bear described their first meeting as "love at first sight," but June didn't quite see it that way.

"Was it love at first sight? No," she assured. "Was it bed at first sight? Maybe."

OK then.

For those who want even more TMI from the family on TLC, their next special, "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo: A Very Boo Christmas," will air Feb. 10 at 8 p.m.
