Who is Jennifer Lamb from Mama June: From Not to Hot? That’s what fans are wondering after she stirred up a whole mess of drama between June “Mama June” Shannon and Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson this season. Jennifer is Sugar Bear’s new wife and the couple tied the knot in February 2017, which means that Jennifer is now a stepmom to Sugar Bear and Mama June’s 12-year-old daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson — but she quickly got promoted to the role of evil stepmother after she questioned whether Sugar Bear is Honey Boo Boo’s biological father.

Jennifer might go on a weight loss journey.
The 44-year-old was in for a rude awakening on this week’s episode of Mama June: From Not to Hot when she went to the doctor because she was complaining about chest pains and shortness of breath. Her doctor referred her to a dietician who revealed that her symptoms are the result of her obesity. Since she currently weighs about 430 pounds, she should seriously consider getting weight loss surgery in order to lose weight — which will help reduce her heart and lung issues.

But Jennifer was unsure about undergoing surgery because Sugar Bear is sexually attracted to big women. She also doesn’t want to follow in Mama June’s footsteps.
“I don’t believe in having surgery like June did just to lose weight. I’ve always said big is beautiful and I will always stand by that,” Jennifer said in her confessional. “I don’t want to look like June. I never would want to look like June, but if I keep doing what I’m doing now, I’m not guaranteed the next five years.”
Jennifer is close with Mama June’s family.
Even though Jennifer is clearly Mama June’s enemy, she’s very close with June’s sister-in-law Janice — and one of Jennifer and Janice’s favorite things to do is get together to talk about June. Janice is also the one who planted the seed in Jennifer’s head that Sugar Bear might not be Honey Boo Boo’s real dad.
Mama June thinks Sugar Bear cheated on her with Jennifer.
During the explosive Mama June: From Not to Hot Season 1 tell-all, Mama June hinted that Jennifer and Sugar Bear had gotten together while Sugar Bear was still with June, but Jennifer denied that she was the other woman and said her relationship with Sugar Bear started out as a friendship after they met and exchanged numbers while waiting on line at a Walmart.
“It was nothing more than, ‘Hey, how are you?’ Actually, it was even ‘How are you and June doing?’ It was nothing that was ‘Hey, come spend the night at my house.’ So there was no cheating,'” Jennifer explained.
