MAMA June, from the hit reality TV show Mama June: From Not to Hot and Family Crisis, has reportedly spent a shocking $75,000 total on her weight loss transformation.
June lost 300 pounds after undergoing major gastric and plastic surgery in 2016.
Since then, she has undergone several more major surgeries in an extensive body overhaul transformation.
Who is Mama June?
Mama June stars in the reality tv series Mama June: From Not to Hot and Mama June: Family Crisis, spin-off shows from daughter Alana’s show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
Mama June, full name June Shannon, is the matriarch of her blended family that hails from McIntyre, Georgia, a town with a population with 600 people.
The family was first noticed after daughter Alana’s brief stint on Toddlers and Tiaras eight years ago.
June’s family comprise all women. She is the mother to Anna Marie “Chickadee” Cardwell, 25, Jessica Louise “Chubbs” Shannon, 23, Lauryn Michelle “Pumpkin” Shannon, 20, and Alana Frances “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, 14.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Mama June is worth $1 million, thanks to the success of her reality TV shows
How much weight did Mama June lose?
Since 2016, June has lost over 300lb.
Although she has mostly kept the weight off, she has fluctuated over the years.
The Sun obtained photos of Mama June working out at a gym in Florida with a face mask on in early April at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.
She has gained 50 pounds due to stress from her March 2019 crack cocaine arrest and family drama.
What surgeries did she have and how much did they cost?
Since the insertion of her gastric sleeve, 40-year-old June underwent more surgery to achieve a total body transformation in 2017.
The reality star went under the knife for a breast augmentation, liposuction on her arms and skin removal on her “turkey neck, and “batwing” arms, and stomach — an area where doctors removed 9lbs. of excess skin.
All in all, her surgeries cost a whopping $75,000.
Recently, June has appeared on Mama June: Family Crisis unkempt and missing teeth, after she exclusively told The Sun earlier this year that she had dental work done to fix a tooth she broke while eating “fat cakes.”
What did Honey Boo Boo have to say about her surgeries?
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star, Alana ripped her estranged mom in a recent episode of Mama June: Family Crisis.
“I live in a double-wide with a bunch of triple-wide people,” the Georgia native said to an audience during a stand-up routine.
Her next joke took a sour note: “My mama’s had a lot of surgeries. She had to get real skinny, real slim.
“She’s been under the knife more times than Michael Jackson.”
The former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star is living with her older sister Pumpkin – real name Lauren – as Mama awaits trials after being arrested on possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia and then later charged for the felony.
Alana revealed recently that she, Pumpkin, Pumpkin’s husband Josh, and their one-year-old daughter Ella have been living in a hotel room as a result of the “bad people” that could be looking for them due to Mama’s debts.
The 14-year-old speaks to camera in a Family Crisis clip, saying “Hi Mama, so, currently, I’m a little mad because we’re in a hotel room because of you and the people that are after us.
“I might have to move schools. Pumpkin and Josh are so hell-bent on moving.”
“I mean, I just hope someday that you realize what you’re doing and what you’re missing out on because you’re missing out on Ella’s life, you’re missing out on my life.”
Last year, June abandoned her family for troubled boyfriend Geno Doak. She sold her Georgia home at a huge loss for fast cash in October 2019.
June has been posting videos from Florida to promote her $30 personalized video messages and other merchandise and was spotted pawning a diamond ring for $1,500 and on Facebook Marketplace in January.
