MAMA JUNE WANTS TO BE THE NEXT MELISSA McCARTHYFebruary 28, 2017
She’s reportedly dropped 300 lbs, and now Mama June is ready for her big Hollywood close-up!
Honey Boo Boo‘s mother June Shannon is reveling in her dramatic weight loss and wants to turn her new look into a brand new career on the big screen.
“She’s got a whole new lease on life and feels better than she has in years. June’s confidence is sky-high, and she’s even considering a major life move. June’s interested in breaking into Hollywood and would love to become a comedy actress like Melissa McCarthy,” a source told HollywoodLife.
And the Georgia peach – who rose to fame on the reality series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo – has taken the first steps to try and emulate the Ghostbusters actress.
“She’s already met with a couple of agents and is seriously thinking about relocating to Hollywood at some point in the near future,” the website’s source added.

But for the moment, Mama June is concentrating on furthering her reality TV career with her new WEtv series From Not to Hot, which chronicles her recent surgical transformation.
The show premiered last week and some fans believe the 37-year-old – who is reportedly now a size 4 – wore a fat suit to make herself look larger in the first episode.

The program has been trying to keep Mama June’s makeover under wraps until it is revealed on the show.
June’s daughter Pumpkin also hinted that her mother has had to wear a disguise in public in the past.
“Even if she does go out, she has to be like suited up, big clothes on,” Pumpkin disclosed. “I mean, she looks huge when she goes out.”
Fat suit or not, do you think Mama June has what it takes to be a film star? Let us know!
