That Time Mama June Shannon Flashed Her Boobs at a Reporter

Mama June Shannon: I'm Bisexual
The 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' star says she's attracted to men and women.

Mama June Shannon is so comfortable in her own skin these days that she doesn’t care if you see her boobs.

One reporter recalls the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch flashing her breasts and taking topless selfies during recent People photo shoot. While being interviewed for the accompanying story, the 37-year-old took off her top during her sit-down, shocking everyone — stylist, photographer, producer and camera crew included — in the room.

The interviewer recalled:

Just as we were about to begin, PEOPLE’s photo editor gently suggested she change her shirt for a more flattering option. June agreed. But instead of trading out her top in private, she lifted her shirt in front of our entire crew and exposed herself. “What? Y’all never seen boobies before?” she hooted. “Screw going in the other room, I can change right here.”

The reporter added that “seeing her ‘boobies’ was a surprise — even for me” despite having met the From Not to Hot star several times in the past.

Later in the day she snapped a few topless selfies and gave us a heads-up right before she had to fart. Crass, yet courteous.

That same interview, Shannon spoke about her weight loss journey after losing almost 300 lbs. Though the reporter noted the mom-of-four was “dunking a piece of cornbread into barbecue sauce and popping it in her mouth” during the shoot, Shannon said she now carefully watches what she eats to ensure she stays a size 4.

As previously reported, she spent upwards of $75,000 to have gastric sleeve surgery, a breast augmentation and skin removal surgery.

“I’m not going to lie to you: I have thrown up, because you can’t over eat with the gastric sleeve,” she shared. “That’s not a thing that I recommend to somebody. You realize what you can and can’t do, and when you do it that one time, you don’t do it again.”
