Buckle up, Honey Boo Boo fans: Mama June Shannon is back!
Yes, the boisterous mama from ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ has somehow managed to make it back on TV! WeTV has decided to give the redneck mom her own show, despite her somewhat nefarious past.
The new show, Mama June from Not to Hot, will focus on Mama June’s transformation from the overweight, belching and farting redneck we’ve known her as to…a glamorous reality star!
“I’m a Mama, a Grandmama, and a big reality star—and now I’m ready for a big change,” Mama June tells us in the new promo for the show.
The promo alludes to the fact that June made both physical and lifestyle changes as part of her transformation.
“It’s time to say goodbye to bad men and junk food,” Mama June says. “Say hello to a whole new me, because when they see what I look like now, they’re not going to believe their eyes!”
Mama June has a history of choosing “bad men.” From her turbulent relationship with Sugar Bear Thompson (the father of June’s daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson), to an affair Mama reportedly had with the man who spent time in prison for molesting Mama’s daughter (!), it’s safe to say that Mama was in desperate need of a love life overhaul.
Mama’s physical transformation is also significant, according to the promo. A list appears on the promo running down what we can only assume are the things that went into making Mama June “hot.” Included in the list are weight loss surgery, physical therapy, liquid diet, tummy tuck, gastric sleeve, strength training, breast implants and laser teeth whitening.
Mama and her trainer Natasha Fett have ties to Snapchatting plastic surgeon Dr. Miami, so it’s likely that the Good Doctor had a hand in at least some part of Mama June’s physical transformation. (Like Mama June, Dr. Miami is also about to get his own reality show on WEtv.)
During an August episode of Botched, Mama June announced that she had already lost about 150 pounds in a year by working with her trainer.
Few other details are known at this time about ‘Mama June: From Not to Hot,’ but we do know that Mama’s manager, the infamous Gina Rodriguez, is serving as an executive producer and star of the show. (Just FYI: Gina was the manager who was supposedly behind both the Farrah Abraham and Mackenzie McKee sex tape scandals.)
‘Mama June: From Not to Hot’ premieres February 24 on WeTV. Watch the first promo below:

Shame on you WE TV and shame on anyone who watches this show. This woman consorts with known pedophiles and pedophiles known to her own kids. She should be ashamed to show her face in public let alone be compensated and given more undeserved attention. This is truly disgusting.
Don’t we have enough “crap” reality shows already? I could care less about “Mama June” ànd her transformations. ..she’ll always be a sad example of poor breeding and just plain poor folk…uncouth wànnabes
Fuck you. You don’t get to put your children in harm’s way and then expect everyone to celebrate your successes. I’m sad she had a free makeover when there are millions more deserving. It was a great day when she went off the air. I don’t expect this show appealing to anyone, so hopefully this time she will be off the air for good.
You guy won’t RedNeckernise me.
This woman deserves nothing! Certainly not a show where she an make any money! She repeatedly put her children in harms way allowing a convicted pedophile around her children. So shame on the channel that gives her any platform to speak about anything!!!! She thought nothing of having her daughter lay in bed with that scum of a pervert!!
I’m sorry this is a stupid show already! This woman will never be HOT! Just cancel it before it starts, we don’t need to see this garbage.
I want to be a hot moma I been struggling with my weight for so long& even got dumped by my husband I would love to have done help. I can’t do it on my own?
LOLing at all these thumb downs because I’m pretty sure this is a joke comment. Hope it is at least.
Mama June from not to not.
This tub of lard couldn’t lose weight herself
Her lazy nasty ass, has to get surgery.
What a waste of a surgeons time, she will still be shovelling the sketti down her fat neck.
I’ve seen hotter fires ( when their switched off )
Pedo protectors should not be given the time of day
Your comments have cracked me up ???
Bet she still has her forklift foot.
The only fork she lifts, is from her plate to her mouth.
AS long as she’s exploiting herself for once and not her children, it’s fine by me. Leave the kids alone with your need for attention.
Also: WTF happened to her voice?! They used to subtitle that woman!
She should be in jail for letting her kids be around the same guy who molested her now grown up kid. Disgusting.
