Mama June Shannon Honey Boo Boo

If you thought the stories about Honey Boo Boo’s mom ‘Mama June’ losing weight were clickbait, we are here to tell you it’s true!


Mama June became famous when she started appearing on ‘Toddlers and Tiara’s’ with her daughter Honey Boo Boo. From there the family got their very own TV show.

Mama June was overweight during the filming of the TV show and for a long time after it was cancelled as well. Recently we started to see “clickbait” type stories across the internet with the typical titles like “You won’t believe how she looks now”.

Refusing to give in to the clickbait scam we ignored them until today. Someone shared a Facebook post of a before and after picture and we had to find out if it really was a true story.

Turns out that Mama June really has lost the weight and is looking pretty fabulous.

June had gastric sleeve surgery in 2016 and went on a diet. She weighed 209kgs (460 pounds) at her heaviest. She worked hard to fit into a size 4 dress. Her goal was to show off her new body at her ex’s, Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson’s, wedding.

Here are some of her after photo’s.

We found a video of an interview with Wendy Williams where Mama June discusses the process of her change and what it all cost.
