Wendy Williams Worries Mama June Will Gain the Weight Back


When it comes to controversial pop culture opinions, we know we can always count on Wendy Williams.

The daytime host is known for speaking her mind on all things celebrity, and she did just that this week about the slimmed-down Mama June Shannon.

In fact, following the Wendy Williams Show interview, the host is a little concerned the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch is at risk of gaining back the 300 pounds she lost on From Not to Hot.

"I am 50-50 with Mama June and I told her that behind the scenes,” Wendy tells E! News.

She continues, “I said Mama June, please work really hard to keep the weight off.”

Her concerns are based in reality, too, as the 52-year-old cites the reality star’s daughters, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” and Lauryn “Pumpkin,” as potential influences.

“She's also got Honey Boo Boo who is a child growing up,” she notes. “She wants normal food."

Plus, there’s the initial motivation behind the 37-year-old’s weight loss surgery, which Wendy fears was mostly the WE tv paycheck.

“She said her motivation was her but I suspect that along with that motivation is a nice paycheck from the network as well as the network paying for surgery,” the daytime diva theorizes.

She adds, “If that's how you lose weight, it's great in the short term, but how do you keep it off?”

Bear in mind, this is coming from someone who has been through a weight loss journey of her own.

In the past few years, Wendy herself has lost 50 pounds, totally transforming her body.

“Weight loss is one thing. Keeping it off is another and you really have to change your mindset and your way of life,” she details.
