On the first season of Mama June: From Not to Hot, we witnessed as the formerly obese star of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo went from not to… well..
Or, at the very least, to less obese.
Shannon shocked viewers by shedding 300 pounds, partly due to her impressive willpower and work out regimen – and partly due to major weight loss surgery.
Has she kept the weight off, though?
What can we expect from Season 2 of this surprise hit?
According to a WE TV press release, new episodes will premiere on January 12 and will feature a “romance with a mystery man.”
They will also feature Shannon competing on the beauty queen circuit, which is how her daughter rose to fame many years ago.
What else can fans expect?
Consider the following synopsis from producers of the series:
This season takes June’s transformation even further as she strives to compete with the “mean girls” of the pageant circuit and become the Queen she’s always wanted to be.
However, as she loses herself in the quest for the crown, Alana (aka “Honey Boo Boo”) Thompson gets lost in the shuffle and runs into the arms of Sugar Bear and Jennifer for attention.
This reignites the rivalry between June, Sugar Bear and Jennifer which only intensifies during Sugar Bear’s pursuit for increased visitation with Alana, and Jennifer’s growing suspicions that Alana might not be Sugar Bear’s biological child.
Meanwhile, June’s daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon’s unexpected pregnancy forces her and boyfriend Josh to grow up and take on adult responsibilities but that doesn’t stop June and Pumpkin from butting heads as less than mature Josh moves in.
June soon realizes that her weight was the least of her problems as she now faces decisions that could potentially tear her family apart.
How will Shannon react to the news of Pumpkin being pregnant?
Who is the aforementioned mystery man?
Is she struggling to keep the weight off with diet and exercise or is this whole thing a breeze?
