Mama June is back and she has a new man!
“Extra’s” AJ Calloway spoke with Mama June and her daughter Alana, formerly known as Honey Boo Boo, about her new boyfriend, whose identity has yet to be revealed.
Mama June gushed that she is “off the market.” The identity of her new mystery man will be on the first episode of Season 2 of “From Not to Hot."
As for how the two met, the 38-year-old revealed, “We met through some mutual friends at a bingo place… I was sweating him.” When Alana joked that he was like Prince Charming, she replied, “I was kind of took back… He just walked in and it was like, ‘Damn, I want to talk to him!’… I chased him out to the parking lot.”
Mama June has the seal of approval from her daughter Alana, but will we see wedding rings? Rumors started swirling that he already gifted her with a diamond ring. Mama June set the record straight, saying, “I’m not engaged. Mama June is not engaged.”
Alana brought attention to the five rings on Mama June’s right hand, saying, “You got something to tell?” Having already pointed out she wasn't wearing a ring on her left ring finger, Mama answered, "Negative.”
June is unsure if marriage is in the cards, admitting, “For the first time, I don’t know. He’s a great guy and I love what we have going on right now and we don’t have any expectations.”
June has also been keeping the weight off, but how is she doing it? She said, “Honestly, just staying busy. I don’t have any secrets. I’m not going to sit here and lie to you and say I am in the gym every day.”
She has gained some weight back after losing 300 pounds, June admitted. “I have gained back about 10 pounds. Honestly, it’s really messing with me... because I know everybody’s like, 'She’s going back to the same... 'No, gaining 10 pounds over a year and a half isn’t that bad.”
Tune in to see Mama June find love again on “From Not to Hot” January 12 on WE tv.
