Plot Synopsis

MAMA JUNE: FROM NOT TO HOT is a one-hour reality series that follows June Shannon (aka Mama June) on her journey through a life-changing transformation, a physical and emotional metamorphosis, that will leave the HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO star virtually unrecognizable. In this series, Mama June embarks on a quest of self-discovery that will redefine who she is as a woman, mother, lover and celebrity. Throughout the transformative journey Mama June will find much needed support - and a little tough love -- from daughters, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Shannon and Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, as well as other close family and friends, including: her lifelong friend, Mike; her loving but judgmental older sister, Doe Doe; her niece, Amber; and her ex-husband, Sugar Bear, who has started a new life with his very new fiance, Jennifer. Plus, no-nonsense fitness and nutrition guru Kenya Crooks has his work cut out for him when it comes to Mama June. The first season documents Mama June's entire journey, from the moment she learns that her ex is getting hitched, right up to her shocking reveal in front of the universe. During this extraordinary process, she undergoes not only a series of extensive plastic surgeries, but also intensive workouts with an unlikely trainer, Kenya Crooks, who forces her to change her entire way of thinking. June battled self-doubt, ongoing temptation to cheat, and a string of hilariously disastrous dates to become the woman she has always wanted to be.

Season 2 premiered Friday, January 12, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT on WE tv. 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. Will the revelation of Pumpkin's secret pregnancy be too much for Mama to bear? Will a budding new romance fade because of her overprotective family? Is she struggling to keep the weight off with diet and exercise? Or are the eyes of the world all the motivation she needs to keep the hot from going back to not?

The third season of MAMA JUNE: FROM NOT TO HOT premiered on Friday, March 15, 2019 at 9pm ET/PT on WE tv, immediately following a new special at 8pm. Two years ago, June Shannon underwent television's most shocking transformation, but she is slipping back into old habits and threatening all her hard-won success. Now, June is locked in a slimdown showdown with her arch-nemesis Jennifer, facing unexpected pregnancy news, and her boyfriend Geno is in trouble with the law. Will the stress bring June to her breaking point? And over the course of 10 episodes, Alana embarks on her first teenage romance and a new career in showbiz following a stint on "Dancing with the Stars: Juniors," while Pumpkin, Josh, and baby Ella finally move out of June's house and into their own chaos -- embroiled in Josh's penchant for get-rich-quick schemes.

June's sister Joanne ("Doe Doe") is determined to find June and separate her from Geno, who the family believes is a bad influence. Jennifer, June's nemesis and wife of June's ex-boyfriend "Sugar Bear", is eager to step into the spotlight vacated by June, winning a major magazine cover contest showcasing her own "not to hot" transformation.

However, constantly lurking in the background is the frightening decline of their family matriarch -- as June faces legal problems, physical deterioration, money issues and suspected abuse from the partner she refuses to abandon. Will June finally hit her rock bottom and seek professional help? Can she return to the family as the "old June" they all miss terribly?
