Bariatric surgery for kids? That's what Mama June Shannon suggested for her daughters "Honey Boo Boo" Alana Thompson and "Pumpkin" Lauryn Shannon. After June's shocking 300-lb weight-loss, Shannon fears for her plus-size daughters' obesity. The reality television star would let them get gastric bypass surgery, skin removal plastic surgery, even a boob job as she did. But the mom of four cautions that slimming down isn't all nip and tuck.

Mama June fears obesity stigma for daughters

The reality television family came to fame on "Toddlers & Tiaras" where Alana Thompson was a plump, cute pageant star.

But at 11, that charming puppy fat has turned to juvenile obesity. The former child beauty queen of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" lost her reality TV show but found a major junk food addiction that rivals Mama June's. But mom can speak to the shame and stigma of weight gain. Even HBB's dad "Sugar Bear" Mike Thompson isn't about fat-shaming his own child. And this after he hypocritically let his new wife Jennifer Lamb undermine June's efforts to help Alana lose weight.

Morbidly obese Jennifer Lamb wants protege

Misery loves company and so, apparently, does obesity. Honey Boo Boo's stepmom must be miserable because the overweight woman is sabotaging Alana's healthier eating just to spite Mama June for looking better at Lamb's wedding.

Mike Thompson's wife is making the girl into a mini-her by stuffing her with desserts. The obese woman ironically called June a whale, then backpedaled, admitting her nemesis had lost weight but feared that she was sick. Does Jen equate obesity with health and weight-loss with anorexia?

Honey Boo Boo could get bariatric surgery or plastic surgery

Ignore Lamb's body-shaming and eating disorder jibes, says Mama June because neither she nor Sugar Bear are fit parents to Alana. But does Shannon have her daughters' best interests at heart? Instead of making the girl diet and exercise, June takes them for ice cream.

After gastric bypass surgery, she'll continue eating junk food and so can Honey Boo Boo if she wants. She can also go the bariatric surgery and skin removal plastic surgery route if she wishes. Did the reality TV star learn anything on "From Not to Hot"? Yes, evidently Mama June discovered one important thing and it's that no surgery will fix weight problems like diet and exercise. But as Pumpkin and Alana face adulthood, they have to learn to find their own path and the willpower to follow it.
