Mama June Has Weight Problems Again For A Tragic Reason But Assures Everything Is Under Control

Date June 18, 2018 11:43

Mama June might have weight problems again. The 38-year-old mother of the four claimed she gained 25 lbs. for the unpleasant reason: her eyesight has almost gone.

Additional weight?

June Shannon has recently made another fabulous appearance with her daughter Alana Thompson day before the beginning of the next season of their show.


The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star is already 12, and she resembles her mom both in appearance and size.


Shannon was noticed to gain some extra weight during that public visit. In the latest show trailer, Mama June has obvious troubles fitting into her size eight luxurious dress, claiming she would get into it for any sake.

Deteriorating vision

Unfortunately, the reason behind the excessive 25 lbs. is tragic. Mama June is getting blind. Shannon claimed she has already lost her right eye and now struggles to preserve her left. The reality show star moved to North Carolina together with her boyfriend Geno Doak to be closer to the Duke University hospital where she is hoping to save her eyesight:

The vision in my left eye is a four out of ten. Nothing is guaranteed. Even if it stays as good as it is now, I’ll be happy.


June is not concerned about the extra weight. She is confident to stay below 200 lbs. as she knows how to lose extra kilograms. That is why obesity is not her problem number one now:

It’s been physically and emotionally draining to start it all over again. I’m paying attention to it.

Not a problem

She also complains about the lost ability to exercise. Lack of physical activities deprives her of possibility to control her weight gain, but once she gets rid of problematic vision issue, she will be back in the game again.

We hope for that as well. Shannon has gone through the long and challenging way to ruin everything in a blink of an eye.
