Mama June looks amazing after shedding 300 lbs., and she stopped by the HollywoodLife.com offices for an exclusive tell-all podcast interview about her journey. So why did she decide to lose so much weight? Here’s a hint: it wasn’t just to please a guy!
June “‘Mama June” Shannon, 37, had been wanting to lose weight for a long time, and she told HollywoodLife.com exclusively why she suddenly decided to take the plunge. “I had been losing weight and people had been saying, you know, your clothes look better, you look better,” the Mama June: From Not To Hot star revealed to us. “What I realized is that I wanted to do better for myself,” she added.
We’re thrilled to hear that Mama June was doing this for herself, but we had to ask — did her ex Mike ‘Sugar Bear’ Thompson have anything to do with it? “You know, Sugar Bear decided to get married,” she said, referring to Sugar Bear’s wedding to Jennifer Lamb in January, “So I wanted to show him like how I was worth it,” she continued, admitting that at first she felt like it was for revenge. “But then I felt like, you know, I needed to do it for myself, to be here,” she explained. “I realized that I had to do it for myself and myself only.” So awesome!
You can hear Mama June talk about all this and more in the next episode of the HollywoodLife.com podcast, coming soon! You can also check out part of the interview in the exclusive video above, and be sure to tune into the Not To Hot season finale tonight at 9:00 PM EST on WeTV!
