Hello red-hot Mama June Shannon!
In the New Year, audiences will be seeing a brand new Mama June when the second season of Mama June: From Not to Hot premieres. When the WE tv series returns, the reality star, who lost an impressive 300 lbs., will once again showcase her slimmed down figure — this time in sizzling lingerie and in a bedazzled pageant dress.
“Damn!” Mama June, 38, says as she looks at herself in the mirror.
Mama June, whose youngest daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson previously competed on pageants — which was documented on TLC’s Toddlers & Tiaras — will throw her own tiara into the pageant world ring.
“If you love me, you’ll do this pageant,” Honey Boo Boo, 12, tells Mama June. “You thought coach Mama June was rough? Wait until you meet coach Alana.”
But Mama June admits her insecurity about the new endeavor: “I’ve been always on the other side of the pageant world. I don’t have any talent.”

Despite her hesitations about pursuing pageants, Mama June is showing off her sexy side and is confident about dipping her toes into the dating scene.
While Mama June is out on a date, Honey Boo Boo and sister Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon spy on their mother, who is recorded locking lips with her male suitor: “She’s kissing him!”
Audiences will also see Pumpkin reveal her “unexpected baby” news to Mama June: “I’m pregnant,” she tells her mother, who expresses her surprise.
Mama June’s ex Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson and his new wife Jennifer Lamb — a.k.a. Mama June’s nemesis — will also return and “come looking for trouble.”
“What are you doing here?” Mama June asks Jennifer, who arrives at her doorstep and came to “talk about some visitation with Alana.”
Mama June will also “fight her biggest battle yet” when she suffers a “medical emergency” that results in her hospitalization. “Every day it’s worse and worse and worse,” she admits.
The season 2 premiere of Mama June: From Not to Hot airs Friday, Jan. 12 at 9 p.m. ET on WE tv.
