Former “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” star Alana Thompson says the darndest things. She and her family became famous for her one-liners from “Toddlers and Tiarra” and she’s still cranking out jokes for her mother’s new reality show, “Mama June: From Not To Hot.”
To help her lose weight, Mama June Shannon underwent gastric bypass surgery. In a sneak peek clip obtained by Us Weekly Friday, the doctor explained to Shannon and her two daughters, Alana and Pumpkin, that her eating habits must change once she is able to eat solid food again.
While Shannon was responsive to the new diet plan, Alana wasn’t happy when the doctor told her she would need to change her eating habits, too.
“Like, I have no idea what this man's talking about,” Alana told the cameras. “Mama's on this diet, but I'm not, boo boo. I like my curves. … I mean, seriously, this dude is really crazy.” She added: “I'm not jumping on any bandwagon, unless it has cheeseburgers and stuff.”
Despite not wanting to get rid of fatty foods, Alana supported her mother. “Mama, you're gonna be looking sexy in that bikini I'm going to buy you,” she said.
The episode was filmed four days after Shannon had weight loss surgery. Her surgeon, Dr. Michael Feiz, was when happy when he saw her incision marks. “Once these heal, you're going to have essentially no scars whatsoever,” he said. “I'm very happy with the results of that.”
The idea for the series was for Shannon to get back at her ex-husband, Michael “Sugar Bear” Thompson, who invited Shannon to his wedding. She wanted to get a “revenge body.” Since her transformation, Shannon reportedly slimmed down to a size 4.
