Mama June Shannon has denied wearing a fat suit on her hit WE reality TV show.
Online haters posted comments after watching the premiree episode of her series, Mama June: From Hot to Not. They believed she had used some prosthetic trickery to make herself look fat and speculated she had already lost weight when the cameras started rolling.
But TV's most popular Mama told Us Weekly on Friday that she absolutely didn't don a fat suit!
"I don't know what the hell people were thinking, but no, I would never do that," Mama June, 37, told Us.
She added about losing weight on her show, "This journey started a long time ago. We started filming a little bit and then through the process, we had stopped and there's nothing … no, hell no, you're seeing me for me.
If you look back, you're seeing me at the doctor's office, you're seeing me this and that, so that's actually me being me. … I mean, I guess now that people are seeing the transformation happen, they're like, 'Woah!
That didn't happen that fast!' I've been going through this journey since May of 2016, so it has been a little while."
But eagle-eyed fans who watched the premiere episode doubted her weight loss journey was filmed authentically, as Radar has reported.
Mama June, the obese former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star reportedly weighed 406 pounds before she got weight loss surgery.
And From Not to Hot is supposed to begin with Shannon at her highest weight. However, intrepid viewers of her show pointed out a suspicious look to her on-camera appearance in the "before surgery" scenes.
"It's obviously obvious that Mama June is wearing a fat face and suit for this show's confessional," one Twitter user captioned a video, in which Shannon appears to have a prosthetic chin below a slimmed-down face.
Another person tweeted on @KMorrison729 that they smelled a rat, writing, "You can tell... by the fake neck & much blonder hair" that Shannon could be using a fat suit trick to appear larger.
But now, Mama June is determined to deny the doubters!
From Not To Hot airs Fridays at 10pm ET on WEtv.
