Is Mama June wearing a fat suit?
That’s what fans are wondering after the highly anticipated series premiere of her new WEtv show Mama June: From Not to Hot. The reality show will document her weight loss journey, but fans are speculating that the former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star had already lost the weight before filming the show — and accused her of wearing a fat suit and prosthetics in her “before” scenes.

Fans took to Twitter to post screenshots of scenes from the first episode, pointing out what looks like a prosthetic double chin peeling around Mama June’s eyes and nose. Fans were convinced that she’s wearing a fat suit because she was very stiff and did not move around much, and she especially couldn’t move her head from side to side. Many of them said the show is “fake” and “scripted.”
