Did Mama June Shannon Lie To Fans About Her Prosthetic Fat Suit?

Despite being a reality show, Family Crisis viewers do not believe that Mama June and her family are being authentic. They have called out the cast for staging scenes though June has maintained the series is authentic. She questioned why she would show herself as rock bottom if it was all for show. Yet, a few fake storylines have been revealed, some minor and some quite deceptive. The first was Pumpkin’s husband, Josh Efird working alongside Sugar Bear which never happened. Keeping in line with Pumpkin, the house seen on the show is not where she lives.

It is a production home, used during filming for space and likely to keep her family safe. Finally, it appeared Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson lived with Pumpkin for several years until she graduated. That was untrue as she moved in with her boyfriend, Dralin Carswell when she was sixteen. Now, a Reddit thread has been started to address how the show has never been real from the beginning.

  • Remember when June wore facial prosthetics and a fat suit the first season? This show has always been fake!

Apparently, Mama June had already dropped weight from her gastric sleeve so production was attempting to disguise this. Therefore, they allegedly put her in a fat suit but she struggled to move in it. Still, she maintained she was not wearing one. So, what did followers have to say?

  • They had to hide June’s weight loss for her big reveal.
  • Reminds me of the NUTTY PROFESSOR
  • Yes! You could sooo tell. It reminded me of that movie with gweneth Paltrow.
  • You could literally see cracks in the prosthetic on her face, she lied when she said she didn’t wear it.

On The Flip Side

Mama June’s followers did have to try to see the positive in all of this. One of them had this to say:

  • Yeah, but she was trying to disguise her weight loss, because the whole point was that we didn’t see how much weight she had lost until the very end, and all the confessionals and interviews are filmed at the end of the season after filming is wrapped and the producers ask the family questions about each event that was filmed, and what they thought. That didn’t exactly make it fake because they just didn’t want to spoil themselves .

That is a fair thing to say as many shows do film interviews throughout the whole season. A lot happens so they go back and reflect. Shows like Unexpected have the teen moms don fake bumps after postpartum just to keep interview consistency. Maybe if June had just been honest at some point and explained the logic behind it, fans would have been more accepting.
