It’s been almost a year since “Mama June” Shannon and her family became instant celebrities with their smash-hit reality show. But along with the fame came critics slamming the mother of four for her weight and love of junk food.
“Everybody has opinions, and everyone has haters,” says June, who recently lost 100 pounds but isn’t ashamed to admit she’s already gained some of it back. “I think you have to be happy with yourself, even if you’re big. If you worry about trying to make other people happy, you won’t be happy yourself.”
In the new issue of In Touch, on newsstands now, June says she and her daughters have all lost weight, but she insists it wasn’t because they dieted. “We eat what we like, we always did,” she says of family faves like cheese puffs, cupcakes and “sketti.” “The show has just made me a lot more active.”
And don’t expect to see kale and quinoa in their kitchen anytime soon. “I’m not trying to cook whatever’s cool,” she says. “I cook what my family wants me to cook!”
The outspoken 33-year-old mother says she’s proud of her body, even if she ends up gaining all the weight back.
