The wedding has spurred the reality TV matriarch to shed weight.
‘I’m trying to lose weight for Sugar Bear’s wedding because my ex is getting married. I’m trying to rebrand myself as like the skinnier Mama June,’ she admits in a preview for Friday’s episode of Mama June: From Not to Hot.

‘But I’m kind of apprehensive, I mean we’re supposed to be here for Alana not me.’
‘I mean I’m not getting married any time soon, but I’m kind of curious how I’m gonna look in the wedding dress,’ she admits.
