You've seen those slideshows promising "Mama June hot." If you thought they were just clickbait, click again. Because June Shannon, of TLC's "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" transformed herself. She's gung-ho to tell everyone about weight loss and an emotional makeover on her new reality TV show "Mama June: From Not to Hot." The mom of pageant star Alana Thompson hints at finally getting plastic surgery after E! "Botched" doctors rejected her for a tummy tuck.

Mama June is back

WEtv will air Shannon's new reality show beginning Feb. 24, 2017. TLC dropped her first show like a hot deep-fried Oreo after the mom of four admitted to hooking up, again, with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel.

That was a bad year for TLC when pedophile allegations tainted the popular reality television show "19 Kids and Counting." Josh Duggar admitted to porn addiction, Ashley Madison cybercheating, and sexually assaulting his sisters. Shannon was furious when TLC canceled her show but not the other one. TLC finally reshuffled the Duggar story into "Jill & Jessa: Counting On."

New reality show, new look for Mama June

June has been angling for a new show after WEtv reality television "Marriage Boot Camp" failed to save her relationship with baby daddy "Sugar Bear" Mike Thompson (father of Alana Thompson). At an obese 400 pounds, the 37-year-old found her shtick--weight loss. She's been dabbling with it since 2013 and there are varying reports of how much she's actually lost.

Shannon tried for a tummy tuck on "Botched," saying that doctors screwed up her last C-section and left her with scar tissue. She also claims to have always gotten a tummy tuck after Caesarean.

Weight loss earns Mama June plastic surgery

Horrified doctors explained that no, with childbirth, you don't get a complimentary tummy tuck.

And "Botched" or not, obesity makes many procedures too dangerous. Shannon lost some weight but doctors wanted to see her shed 75 more pounds. "The Doctors" echoed this advice to Mama June last year too. They felt she was in the danger zone. But "Mama June: From Not to Hot" promises a surgical makeover. So did she slim down, and if so, how much?

Mama June needs cosmetic surgery or weight loss?

Shannon says she's having weight loss surgery. It's not gastric bypass surgery, but skin removal. June claims that all the "fat' on her body is just loose skin which body contouring will neatly remove. After bariatric surgery on "My 600-lb Life" patients may qualify for skin removal surgery. At 245 pounds, Doctors warn that plastic surgery while morbidly obese may leave patients with an even more botched body. She claims to have lost 150 pounds in one year but has really been at it much longer.

Commenters say they can see no difference. Shannon's breast implant augmentation makes her waist look smaller. Her face retains all the original bloating and that's the first place weight loss shows. Given her C-section misunderstanding, doctors may deem the young mom in need of old-fashioned diet and exercise, not more surgery.
