It feels like it’s been forever since we last got a substantial update on Mama June, doesn’t it?
In reality, it’s only been about six months since we saw the finale of her new reality show, Mama June: From Not to Hot, the one that documented her weight loss journey.
In episodes that aired back in the spring, we saw June get gastric sleeve surgery. The surgery, along with diet and exercise, led to her losing around 300 pounds.
Initially, she wanted to lose the weight to get one of those “revenge bodies” to throw in Sugar Bear’s face — remember, they split up after he cheated on her several times.
At the time, he had just proposed to a woman named Jennifer Lamb, and June wanted to look extra amazing at their wedding, so she really did put a lot of work into her weight loss.
She went through the first surgery, then two more surgeries to remove excess skin. If you saw the show, or even if you just saw photos from those procedures, you know that it was rough on her.
But she lost the weight, she looked great at Sugar Bear’s wedding, and she’s managed to keep all that weight off for nearly a year now.
You know what that means?
It means it’s time for a brand new season!
WE tv just released a teaser for the second season of Mama June: From Not to Hot, and it’s … well, it’s probably not exactly what you’d suspect.
The teaser starts with a shot of a tiara, and in the caption of the video, the network wrote “Mama June is hitting the pageant circuit!”
Could it be? Could June be following in Honey Boo Boo’s footsteps? Could she really be entering the world of beauty pageants?
Looks like it. There’s really no other way to interpret all this.
“To be a pageant queen, one needs refinement, poise, charm,” a fancy Englishman explains in a voiceover while June acts like June.
Just in this short little teaser, we see her burp, fart, and blow an air horn while good ol’ Jennifer Lamb tries to talk to her.
“Mama June’s hitting the pageant circuit,” the voiceover announces, as she asks “Why the hell not, y’all?”
Why the hell not, y’all, indeed.
We don’t have an exact premiere date yet, but come January 2018, Mama June will find her way back to our televisions.
