Yet another reality television star is making dubious weight loss claims. Mama June Shannon says she's down to size 4 thanks to diet and exercise. But she forgot to mention bariatric surgery and later plastic surgery. Like Khloe Kardashian and her "Revenge Body" trim down, there's more to Shannon's supposed 325-lb makeover than meets the eye. What's the real story behind the ex-star of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" and her "From Not to Hot" transformation?

Mama June 'From Not to Hot' lies?

Since 2013, Mama June has been bragging that she has lost weight with workouts, but the celebrity complained that folks noticed no difference.

Numbers vary on where the reality television star started but 460 pounds is commonly quoted. June Shannon said she lost 100 pounds the old-fashioned way (with diet). On "From Not to Hot" she revealed getting gastric bypass surgery after repeatedly saying she didn't have to diet and only had to walk to lose. Like Khloe Kardashian, who admitted to using Forskolin, an appetite suppressant, Shannon found weight loss took more than exercise.

Does Mama June need diet?

In 2016, the mom of four appeared on "Botched" asking for the tummy tuck she says she was promised after C-section.

She was denied plastic surgery due to morbid obesity. Shannon claims she already shed 150 pounds but physicians were no more convinced than they were by her botched C-section claims. The 37-year-old also appeared with daughter "Honey Boo Boo" Alana Thompson on "The Doctors" that year. Mother and daughter were urged to lose weight now and told that diet was the only way to do that. On WE tv "From Not to Hot", the reality TV star promises to have done that but her methods are questionable.

Mama June's makeover due to plastic surgery?

"From Not to Hot" shows an obese woman who undergoes a remarkable transformation with hardcore exercise and changed eating habits after gastric bypass surgery. At least part of that is true. As patients on TLC's "My 600-lb Life" know, bariatric surgery alone will not lose weight. It takes a lot of willpower and work, but Shannon says she had help from the plastic surgeon.

Shannon had skin removal surgery (a type of all-body tummy tuck that greatly reduces weight), and daughter Lauren "Pumpkin" Shannon fessed up that "Mama got her boobies done." So a breast implant procedure was part of the makeover. If June wears size 4, she has lost well over 300 pounds. Pumpkin says mom wears a fat suit to hide her massive weight loss.
