By now, most everyone's seen the big weight loss reveal of Mama June Shannon. But word is that her "From Not to Hot" makeover cost the reality TV diva a plus-size lot of cold cash. How much did the former "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" star shell out for gastric bypass and plastic surgery? And, more importantly, where did the supposedly-cash-strapped mom of four get the money?

Mama June dished up for diet

Losing weight isn't cheap if you do it the celebrity way. (The old-fashioned ways of diet and exercise are still free). Shannon forked out a lot of dough to learn how to put down her fork.

Bad puns aside, what was the tab for her "From Not to Hot" transformation? Sources say it could be as high as $50,000! That includes the bariatric surgery, breast implant procedure, tummy tuck, skin removal and other plastic surgery on her back, neck and arms. But it probably doesn't cover the cost of the personal trainer. Did WEtv pay or did June Shannon use "Honey Boo Boo" earnings as she says?

"Extreme Couponing" pays off for Mama June?

So how did the "From Not to Hot" star, who can't afford the proverbial pot or window to throw it out, get the money? Come to that, who paid for that luxurious new home that Alana Thompson and sister "Pumpkin" (Lauryn Shannon) are always seen lolling all over?

They lived in a tiny rundown house on "Honey Boo Boo." Is "Sugar Bear" the sugar daddy? Mike Thompson may be the fiscally smarter one but he likely wouldn't or couldn't pony up for an extreme makeover, Mama June edition. Did Shannon fund it with her coupon skills or did the she finally learn to save reality TV show earnings?

Mama June's bargain plastic surgery

Actually, $50K is pretty cheap, comparatively speaking, for a boob job, skin removal and bariatric surgery. The average out-patient appendectomy runs around $15,000. Babies cost around that too and cancer treatment is off the charts. That explains how patients on "My 600-lb Life" can afford obesity treatment, gastric sleeve procedures and other surgeries. It's been said that hospitals overcharge on medically necessary procedures so they can offer reduced rates on elective surgery.
