Her weight loss has left her more confident than ever, but don’t expect Mama June to hit the Dancing With the Stars ballroom anytime soon!
While chatting with Life & Style on Friday, April 7, the 37-year-old remained adamant that she wouldn’t appear on the ABC competition, though her trainer, Kenya Crooks, is all for it!

“She would look good doing that,” the fitness guru admitted, though June just kept shaking her head. This season of DWTS includes contestants such as Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne, and former Bachelor Nick Viall.

However, sources are now telling Hollywood Life that Mama June may be changing her mind when it comes to the reality dancing competition — and hopes to be paired up with pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
“Obviously, in the past, it would never have been even a slight possibly, but now she’s lost all that weight and she’s on a grueling workout regime, she’s in tip-top shape," the insider said. "June’s manager has put out feelers to the show’s producers and she seems to be getting pretty positive feedback.”
The mother-of-four also revealed to Life & Style that she has no plans to pose nude after dropping 300 pounds. “I think there comes a point where you just draw the line. I am still the same June that everyone knows and loves,” she shared. “I mean I’m not going to change and go buck wild and say ‘I’m 37 and look like I’m 20.’ Hell no.”
And despite her new figure, bikinis, Daisy Dukes, and crop tops are all no-nos too. “I am still very conservative. This is the most you will ever see,” June said, pointing to her semi low-cut shirt. But Kenya has other plans for the reality star. “Thick thighs save lives. We can make [short-shorts] happen. I can do it!” he declared.

So what’s next for the From Not to Hot star after her life-changing transformation? “Who knows. Right now, I’m just laying low and really spending time with the kids and enjoying life,” she told Life & Style. “And hopefully being able to go back home and then going to Vegas.”

Relationship Status: Separated from husband Michael Cardwell. The couple has two daughters, Kaitlyn Elizabeth and Kylee Madison.
The oldest of June's children slammed her weight loss, telling E! News, "I think she did it just to be more famous. I don't think she did it just for her because she never mentioned anything ever before about getting plastic surgery." Anna is currently estranged from her mom, claiming the reality star owes her money for appearing on their TLC series, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
