Mama June's got a new body, and now she wants a new man. In an exclusive interview with Us Weekly on Friday, March 10, the reality star revealed that she won't walk down the aisle a second time. News, June's weight transition is documented in the new WE reality TV show "Mama June: From Not to Hot".
The viewers of the show suspected that they filmed the scenes after Mama June shed the pounds, so she had to wear prosthetics to look bigger than her current size.
"I had to pay, just like everybody else", Shannon admitted while noting the network had nothing to do with her medical bills getting paid.
Shannon, who said she doesn't consider her procedures "plastic surgery", added that she wouldn't be against her daughters one day undergoing similar operations if they believed it would help them.
ET sat down with Mama June's daughters, 11-year-old Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson and 17-year-old Lauryn "Pumpkin" Thompson, last month, when they revealed that their mother first underwent gastric sleeve surgery in May 2015, then surgery to remove excess skin after weight loss, and finally, surgery on her breasts - which all led to a stunning transformation. "(The surgery) was going to happen whether I had them or not".
"I'm definitely not going to have any more", she said on the radio show.
"You need to do your research, definitely", she noted.
"The type of guy I'm attracted to would be someone who is very loving, very caring, very devoted, is willing to give 100 percent like I am", she said. "That helps you lose as much weight as possible".
If you ask Mama June Shannon, marriage is no longer something she's looking forward to.
"I do encourage them to lose weight, but they're teenagers", the former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star added.
Mama June's fans were disappointed after seeing her on extremely bigger size in the pilot episode of "Mama June: From Not to Hot". "I'm trying to rebrand myself as like the skinnier Mama June".
