WE TV’s controversial reality show “Mama June: From Not to Hot” will soon return for a second season.
But fans are already raising concerns after watching the newly released trailer about the former “Honey Boo Boo” family.
According to People, Mama June has made an even bigger transformation since last season, when fans watched her lose more than 200 pounds and undergo plastic surgery.
She’s now decided to take on an entirely new challenge — pageants.
Over the summer, the family dropped hints that the mother of four was following in her famous daughter’s footsteps and venturing into the world of pageantry.
And the new trailer reveals that she decided to show off her glamorous side at the request of her own pageant queen, Honey Boo Boo, according to Too Fab.
But in the clip, Mama June says she’s unsure about the idea:
“I’ve been always on the other side of the pageant world. I don’t have any talent.”
However, she quickly jumped right into the new role. The 38-year-old mom even stripped down for a holiday-themed lingerie photoshoot in preparation for the pageant world.Healthy Celeb/Twitter
Mama June’s new pageant queen persona prompted a big reaction from fans, but not all of them were supportive.
Many social media users were quick to criticize the mom for concentrating on her looks, instead of her children. Some Facebook users wrote:
I don’t care how much weight she drops or how much makeup she puts on, she is still ugly on the inside.
She put a pervert ahead of her own daughter.
Obviously, this woman is selfish. First she pimps her daughter(s) out and now she fixes her own shady self and just lets that child keep getting bigger and bigger on her moo moo juice. I just can’t even look at any of it anymore.
She needs to do something about her daughters’ weight. Its incredibly unhealthy.
She is beautiful on the outside now, now work on the inside. Please help your daughter too. Her weight is so unhealthy!
Good for June for losing all that weight but what about her daughter. She needs to be thinking about her instead of her stupid show.
Fans were primarily concerned about her youngest daughter’s weight, while others were still furious over the controversy that resulted in the girl’s own reality show getting canceled.
In 2014, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” a spin-off from TLC’s “Toddlers and Tiaras,” came to an abrupt end when it came to light that Mama June was dating a convicted child molester.
The new trailer also included footage of Mama June’s 17-year-old daughter, Pumpkin, announcing her pregnancy.
But regardless of others’ opinions, it seems that Mama June is going to keep living her life the way she wants. The new season premieres January 12.
