4. She found fame on a reality show.

In 2012, June and Alana made a splash on the TLC show Toddler and Tiaras, which detailed Alana’s performances on the kiddie pageant circuit.

Alana quickly grew such a fan base that the family was offered its own show called Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, which began in 2012. The show was canceled abruptly after producers and audiences found out that June was involved with a McDaniel, a registered sex offender.

6. Will she be a mama again?

While the second season of Not to Hot, focused on family drama more than on weight loss, the third season is alleged to be getting back to its roots. According to the trailer for season three, June has started putting weight back on and loved ones are scolding her for her return to unhealthy eating habits. June however, expresses some concern that the weight gain might be related to a pregnancy.

In one clip on the trailer she says “Gramma Flo is a little late for her visit this month,” suggesting that a pregnancy is a real possibility. The trailer leaves fans hanging, however, and doesn’t give any more clues about what happens next. A peek at social media feeds for June and the show are equally frustrating. The network and its stars are keeping the photos to a minimum so there are no spoilers about what happens on the new season.

Will Mama June be a Mama again? Fans will have to watch and see.
