Mama June's Weight Loss Reality Show Sparks 'Fatsuit' Allegations

After the 37-year-old reality star's new WE tv series premiered on Friday, February 24, several viewers took to social media to question whether the "before" scenes were actually filmed after she dropped the weight. She added, "You're gonna see Mama's transformation first and then you're gonna see her gettin' skinnier and her having a trainer now - all, everything". So when "Mama" June Shannon started rising to fame for her diva daughter, "Honey Boo Boo", it wasn't long before different networks and producers saw that Mama June was long overdue for some health and beauty guidance.

The television personality had the surgery after hitting a plateau during her quest to slim down.

Pumpkin, already taken, got engaged when she was 16. She approached them with hopes to get rid of the excess skin and scar tissue from when she had a c-section when she delivered Alana.

Mama June started her weight loss journey at 460 pounds, and a teaser for her new reality show suggests that she's now down to a size 4.

"And then she's just like, 'No, I have to go out, I'll just put on big clothes and they will never see me, ' " Alana continued.

Mama June is looking for love!

"It is very hard, because mama, she is a very stubborn person, and she wants to do everything", Pumpkin explains.

"The cool thing is, you get to see her transformation not only from a physical standpoint, but you also get to see her change here, you know, from a mental standpoint", Kenya explained to ET's Jennifer Peros on Wednesday.

"Pumpkin, she gonna catch you outside if you keep talking about her", the 11-year-old said. June's loving her new body and new life - she feels sexy and flirty, and hot.

"It isn't like I want Sugar Bear back or anything, but I'm not ready to see him with anybody else either", she said in her confessional.

"I ain't trying to be like R-rated or anything, but she walks around the house in a pair of her underwear now, so.", Pumpkin joked. Pumpkin later jokes about her mom's self-confidence these days. "Uh huh. I'm like, 'June, put some trousers on!" Sugar Bear, Mama June, Honey Boo Boo, this is what society is watching?
