Larger than lifeThe 34-year-old star is relieved Alana is taking a break from her expensive hobby because it was taking its toll on the whole family - June's partner Mike 'Sugar Bear' Thompson, Anna 'Chickadee' Shannon, Jessica 'Chubbs' Shannon and Lauryn 'Pumpkin' Shannon.She revealed: "Alana's very competitive, she's seven, so she doesn't understand the win or lose thing. For us, I can't afford for her to do everything. "It's just stressful when you're trying to get ready for a competition and trying to do other things. It used to be a lot in one day."
Negative commentsThe larger than life family have attracted criticism for their unhealthy eating habits, vulgar manners and redneck lifestyle, prompting Adam Levine to memorably launch into an X-rated Twitter rant, calling the laugh-out-loud reality show the "worst thing that's ever happened" and branding June and Sugar Bear bad parents.However, June insists she isn't affected by negative comments and has no hard feelings towards critics like Adam because the family are just being themselves.She insisted: "I don't even criticise anyone or anything. Some people are made for TV and some people aren't. Right now that's where we're at in our lives and we're enjoying it. "When it becomes not fun anymore we can move back out of the spotlight and still be ourselves. Everybody has their opinions people are gonna love us or hate us in normal everyday life anyway."
