Like many others, you’re probably wondering where you’ve heard the name, ‘Mama June’ before. Her rise to fame came after her younger daughter Alana, aka Honey Boo Boo, appeared on hit TV series, Toddlers & Tiaras. The show first aired on our screens back in 2009.
Since then the family was given their own TV show after the network, TLC, decided that the world needed to see more of their daily life. The series that followed was called ‘Here comes Honey Boo Boo’ and aired from 2012-2014. But recently, a new series, dedicated entirely to Mama June. The latest series called ‘Mama June: From Not to Hot’ documents her astounding weight loss, totalling over 300lbs!
While the sceptics say that she only underwent the surgeries because the TV networks were footing the entire bill, you can’t knock the hard works she’s had to go through. Speaking to ET, she said 'It’s a daily struggle. Trust me it’s work. You have to put the work into it because if you don’t, there’s no sense in spending the money and having the stuff done.'
Following her incredible transformation, the 37-year-old has been given a newfound confidence about herself. She’s so happy in fact, that she plans to become a model and enter the world of competing in adult beauty pageants.
