"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 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.

But now, Mama June is determined to deny the doubters!

From Not To Hot airs Fridays at 10pm ET on WEtv.
