MAMA June recreated the iconic Ghost pottery scene made famous by Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore as she introduced fans to her new boyfriend on From Not to Hot.
The 38-year-old redneck matriarch debuted her new beau – 42-year-old Geno – on the first episode of the latest series of her reality show, and got down and dirty with a clay wheel to show her at her loved up best.
Speaking to the camera, she beamed: “I’ve found love, ya’ll! I have a great, wonderful guy, Geno, and I feel like a kid again.”
The pair were then seen recreating the pottery scene and were told to keep the clay “wet” and “moist” as they got their hands dirty making a vase that easily looked phallic in nature.
In one of the most remembered love scenes of all time, Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore were seen romping after working on a clay pot together to the tune of Unchained Melody in the 1990 drama, Ghost.
However, the classic movie scene reference was lost on Geno, and when Mama – real name June Shannon – remembered the moment, he asked: “What are we gonna do with goats?”
Mama June had been keeping Geno away from prying eyes over the last few months as their romance continued to bloom.
Cleary smitten with her new boyfriend, she joked that sneaking him around had been “kind of like foreplay” and beamed as she told the cameras: “I think he likes me for me, not for the fame-ability or being skinny.”
“Geno is the first guy that I’ve dated really seriously since I lost the weight,” she said. “I’m trying to keep this one to myself to see how it’s going to work out.”
However, the star is clearly fearing falling in love again, as she admitted: “I’ve had some really terrible luck with guys and I’ve got burned. So it’s really hard for me to fully trust him right now.”
But proving that he was willing to go all in, when he finally met children Pumpkin and Honey Boo Boo, he made himself right at home – by jumping in the back of a truck the girls had made into a “redneck bubble bath”.
She then beamed: “He’ll make a great addition to the family.”
Mama is still clearly better than ever after undergoing a 328lb weight loss transformation in the latest series.
Speaking to People ahead of the new series, she joked it was down to her “sleeping til 1pm and skipping breakfast”.
Sound like our kind of diet.
