On Sunday, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” returns for another season on TLC with the episode entitled “A Very Boo Christmas.” Viewers of the show will see a different looking Mama June Shannon, who has dyed her hair and has lost 115 pounds. She was able to lose the weight without going to the gym or going on a diet, according to The Huffington Post.
“No, I have not felt no pressure to change,” Mama June said in an interview with the Huffington Post. “I was blond about six years ago and I wanted to go back blond, so I went back blond and I loved it. I have lost 115 pounds, but that’s because I’m on the go. We love fried food, but I lost that weight because I’m more active doing things.”
She also said that the fame brought upon her family has not changed them one bit.
“In five years, I see us still playing mud ball games, being a family and being there for one another. Wherever this amazing adventure leads us, we are ready for anything as long as we are a family,” says June. “That’s where I’m the most happy, because my kids mean the world to me. You know I would be lost without them. That’s all that matters to me.”
She even offered advice for other moms: “My advice to mothers is be foremost a parent. Second of all, make sure you are a friend also. I don’t want my kids doing what other kids’ parents don’t know about. You got to open that line of communication. Its what I call an open-door policy.”
Without providing viewers too much information about the season premiere episode on Sunday, she did note that Alana still believes in Santa Claus.
“You get to see what we do on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We do charity work for our community and it’s a huge project we do every year. We make sure every kid that is needy in our community gets something at Christmas time,” says June. “We got reindeer food — it’s corn and glitter — and we sprinkle it on the yard for Santa to be able to find our house better.”
