Get ready because June “Mama June” Shannon is making her return to reality TV! The former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star and her daughters Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon are returning for Season 2 of WEtv’s hit series Mama June: From Not to Hot — but now there’s a twist! Now that Mama June has already gone From Not to Hot during Season 1 — where she shed 300 pounds with a mix of weight loss surgery, diet, and exercise — she’s going to be flaunting her new revenge body on the pageant circuit.
In the first official trailer for the upcoming season — which premieres Friday, Jan. 12 — Mama June is still the same person that reality TV fans have grown to love over the years. She’s still belching and passing gas, and it seems like she’s hoping to gain a little more refinement by entering herself into a beauty contest. It’s the same world that brought Mama June and her family to reality TV in the first place — they signed on their own spin-off after Alana charmed viewers on TLC’s Toddlers and Tiaras.
However, just because she dropped the pounds doesn’t mean the drama in Mama June’s life is also gone! Keep scrolling below to find out what fans can expect to see on Season 2 of Mama June: From Not to Hot.
Mama June’s daughter Pumpkin is pregnant.
Lauryn announced that she is pregnant with her first child back in August and last month she revealed that she is expecting a baby girl with her fiancé Josh Efird. Her pregnancy and journey to motherhood will be a major storyline in the upcoming season.
Mama June is still feuding with Sugar Bear’s new wife Jennifer Lamb.
The ladies didn’t exactly get along during Season 1, and their feud over co-parenting Alana is still going strong this season. Jennifer even has growing suspicions that Honey Boo Boo is not Sugar Bear’s biological child!
Mama June is dating again!
There’s a hot new romance with a mystery man — but it looks like her overprotective daughters will get in the way! Earlier this year, Mama June revealed what she looked for in a guy. “The type of guy I’m attracted to would be someone who is very loving, very caring, very devoted, is willing to give 100 percent like I am,” she told Us Weekly. “Someone who knows that my kids are a No. 1 priority and knows that no matter what, they are going to be here. And also someone who can be my best friend, but also we can have that seriousness to our relationship.”
Mama June is working to maintain her weight loss.
Now that it’s been nearly a year since she went from a size 24 to a size four, she has to continue her healthy lifestyle in order to keep the weight off.
Be sure to tune into Mama June: From Not to Hot Friday, Jan. 12 at 9 p.m. EST on WE tv.
