Honey Boo Boo’s Mama June loses 300 Lbs
Mama June, also known as Honey Boo Boo’s mom, ha showed off her new figure while walking the red carpet in a slinky red dress at the premiere for Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta seemingly channeling screen siren Marilyn Monroe. Mama June appeared at the event with her daughter Alana, better known as reality star Honey Bo Boo.
June Shannon, the 37-year old mom known for her appearances in the world-popular reality TV show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, went on a diet two years ago, determined to loose weight and become popular and more attractive. The reality star’s dramatic transformation was covered on TV show From Not to Hot, which showed her try to get a “revenge body” in the run up to her ex Sugar Bear’s wedding.
At her heaviest, Mama weighted a staggering 33 stone. She told cameras: “It makes me feel really good to show other people this is what I’ve always thought of myself and that my inside hadn’t changed, like my giving and outgoing and loving personality that was there when I was there. It’s just a little bit more out there.”
Red seems to be Mama June’s color since going from 460 pounds to a size four. In a recent photo shoot, the mother of four looked like a Baywatchlifeguard while modeling a flattering red swimsuit. She also wore a red dress to her ex Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson’s wedding, which was featured on the season finale of From Not to Hot.
After revealing to the world her dramatic transformation, the media spoke with Mama June about her dedication to this new lifestyle. “I will never go back to what I looked like,” she said. “Never.”
“I will do whatever it takes,” she added. “You have to exercise and you have to maintain [this lifestyle]. A lot of people think that when you have surgeries, that it’s just — nothing else has to be done. And that is not the case. It is a live and learn thing.”
