June Shannon opens up about putting weight back after losing 100 lbs
Honey Boo Boo’s mom, June Shannon, has opened up about putting weight back on after losing 100 lbs, why her family will never diet and her thoughts on getting Botox.
Mama June, 33, has also revealed that her daughter Alana Thompson (aka Honey Boo Boo), 7, is losing her “baby fat”.
The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch told InTouch: “I gain a couple of pounds back and then I lose them. But even if I gained the whole 100 pounds back, I’d be play with it.”
“A lot of larger people beat themselves up when they gain, but I’m really happy with myself.”
Mama June also revealed that her children, Anna, 18, Jessica, 16, Lauryn, 13, and Honey Boo Boo have lost weight too.
“They’ve all lost some weight too, but it’s just because we’ve been so busy. And Alana’s growing up and losing her baby fat!”
However, June Shannon – who grabbed attention for her signature dish of “sketti” – refuses to put her family on a diet.
“We eat what we like. I’m not trying to cook whatever’s cool. I cook what my family wants me to cook!”
Earlier this year, June Shannon said that she had tipped the scales at 365 lbs before she started filming her TLC series and at the beginning of this year she weighed a lighter 263lbs.
Mama June said at the time: “With the show I’ve been more active. They have me running around and going different places… I guess it’s paying off.”
“I haven’t done any surgeries… no diet pills… never went to the gym,” she insisted.
In a recent interview June Shannon said: “Hell no!” when she was asked if she was a fan of Botox.
On Here Comes Honey Boo Boo reality series June Shannon is regularly seen tucking into giant plates of food, with her favorite family dish being Sketti – a saucy combination of spaghetti, ketchup and butter.
A recent episode also showed how Mama June’s Thanksgiving menu featuring 15 cans of vegetables, 12 cans of cranberry sauce and a large turkey coated with a gallon of butter.
“Just like all my other recipes, butter and sugar makes everything taste better,” she exclaimed as she prepared the gut-busting feast.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo – which is due to return to network TLC this summer – recently gained a new fan in Hollywood movie star Johnny Depp.
“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo… I could be called a fan,” Johnny Depp revealed this month.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Season 2 premieres with a double on Tuesday 23rd July 2013, 9 PM on TLC.
