Mama June: Makeover Takes Off Ten Years

Mama June, otherwise known as Honey Boo Boo’s mama, has had a startling makeover recently that takes at least ten years off of her.

June, 33, might have realized that with newfound success comes a desire to look good at all times. The mother of four changed up her look with a simple hairstyle transformation and possibly a fake tan, and her new blonde locks do wonders to make her look younger.

The family saw the first of their “Holladay” specials air on Sunday; the episodes follow June and her brood through the end of the year, when they dressed like zombies for Halloween and collected food, money, and toys for needy families at Christmas. The girls also have some fun with June while tormenting her about her fear of mayonnaise.

The family has been at the center of much debate over the past several months after “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” first aired on TLC; some see them as a bad representation of the South, or perhaps as people who don’t realize they’re being made fun of. However, the millions of viewers the show has amassed will contest that the family is just being themselves and should be applauded for it.

    nice makeover, now can they do something about the chin??

      Look in the mirror, Lisa

      I find it sad that you have to make fun of this or any persons looks. What does it matter? People lead different lives. She does not seem to be a bad person. Are you a super model or have you won any Nobel prizes? I know I havn’t. What I find interesting is the kind of people that make fun of this family usually admire people like the Kardashians. And that is a whole other discussion.

      • Aimee

        in response to the super model question, judging by her picture like she’s doing to Mamma June i would say NO.

  • JO

    still ugly, still low class, nothing can beautify this woman NOTHING.

    • http://yahoo janetw

      So your so perfect JO?

    • Aimee

      i feel the same way about your attitude and rudeness

    I saw it coming in some of her earlier comments on the show. Nothing wrong with it, just always knew this woman saw an opportunity and ran with it. Smarter than the average bear, people just don’t realize it because of where she comes from. People are still rude of course, like she cares, she has love from her family and is making money. She looks at you haters as the suckers I am sure.

      Still obese. A pig is still a pig with blond hair dye and fake tan or not. They should go on The Biggest Loser Family Edition. They need to get control of their weight. Maybe then they would get some respect from me. I would not want to live like that and have my kid carry on my fatty legacy. GROSS

      • http://yahoo janetw

        No reason to call people names. Your just a big bully, and that’s where kid’s, if you have any, get their bad behavior from.

      • Lj

        Seriously, not nice. It is better to say nothing. Check your self, there is always something you can work on. The only person you control is you. Nasty, rude and offensive are as bad or worse then obesity.

      • Jess

        ADH, who really cares about earning your respect?

        • http://yahoo Mary N.

          High five that one!

      • http://yahoo Mary N.

        And, sounds like you should go to church!

      • Aimee

        A lot of us on here don’t respect you and your rude comments either.

  • JF

    Regardless of what you think of the show I read an article that she has trust funds set up for all of the kids and doesn’t even see the $$ that they make on the show. If that’s true, and I’m taking it with a grain of salt, then I applaud her for doing what’s right with the money.

    • http://yahoo janetw

      At least Mama June has sense about the money, and dad has a 9 to 5, or even longer, job that supports the family. Only Alana is his, but he steps up to take care of them all, financially.

  • jasmine

    lets see your face..some people are just mean!!! Like yourself

    • http://yahoo janetw

      Mean, or in other words a BULLY

  • Rita

    Why do people tend to always look for the worst in everything now a days. It’s sad that no one has anything good to say about their family. At least they love one another and stand by one another. There are a lot of wealthy families out there that don’t even see one another.

    • Michelle

      I agree with Rita. Whatever happen to the rule, “if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all”.

  • Linda S. Carbonell

    A season on “Biggest Loser” would probably be more useful.

    • trish

      LMAO!!! Indeed!

      • Gem

        oooooh Trish, the thing about life and hormones it can happen to the best of us … the tongue and evil thoughts can make you reap your actions, to have a better understanding of others. Be careful! challenge yourself to be more nobel!! If anything, I wish her and her family the best.

  • trish

    Well she needed it, LOL! Now she needs to take that show money and get that fat trimmed from her neck—- it’s disgusting!

    • tina

      What’s disgusting is people like you Trish who make comments like that.

  • Danielle Sarabyn

    It makes me sick to my stomach that we as people watch this. All we are doing is making fun of them. As we say we are against anti-bulling we are brodcasting it for everyone.

  • http://yahoo Mary N.

    The FACT OF THE MATTER IS THIS: The people who watch this show do so for a laugh. Period. That’s not to say that they haven’t come to respect them, in a way, but the show is on the air for a laugh – – to make fun of their language, their activities, etc. It has more to do with making fun of them. You can deny it all you want but you know it’s the truth.

  • Gem

    I have not watch the show, but, I have say and agree with some of the positive posting (you are bullies).

    • RH

      I’m a Southerner. We know you laugh at our accents and ways of doing things. We don’t take ourselves too seriously and neither should you. We’re not into size down here, we’re into HEART. We’re smarter than we sound (and you think). It’s okay to laugh. I’m sure Mama June is…all the way to the bank! *Wink, wink to you, Mama!*

  • Karrie

    You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.

  • MissGmoma

    June is smarter than people give her credit for.She found a way to make money & truly the family seems to have fun doing it.As log as they don’t care what other people think i find them to be truly happy & genuine.

  • Laura

    Critics, how much are you making, she may not be pretty, but she know how to survive in a pretty big way.

  • Laura

    She has a great personality, more than what I can say for those who put her down. She is making a honest living and I am sure do not care about you vemous remarks.
