Mama June: I’m Gonna Be a Beauty Queen!

It feels like it's been forever since we last got a substantial update on Mama June, doesn't it?

In reality, it's only been about six months since we saw the finale of her new reality show, Mama June: From Not to Hot, the one that documented her weight loss journey.

In episodes that aired back in the spring, we saw June get gastric sleeve surgery. The surgery, along with diet and exercise, led to her losing around 300 pounds.

Initially, she wanted to lose the weight to get one of those "revenge bodies" to throw in Sugar Bear's face — remember, they split up after he cheated on her several times.

At the time, he had just proposed to a woman named Jennifer Lamb, and June wanted to look extra amazing at their wedding, so she really did put a lot of work into her weight loss.

She went through the first surgery, then two more surgeries to remove excess skin. If you saw the show, or even if you just saw photos from those procedures, you know that it was rough on her.

But she lost the weight, she looked great at Sugar Bear's wedding, and she's managed to keep all that weight off for nearly a year now.

You know what that means?

It means it's time for a brand new season!

WE tv just released a teaser for the second season of Mama June: From Not to Hot, and it's … well, it's probably not exactly what you'd suspect.

The teaser starts with a shot of a tiara, and in the caption of the video, the network wrote "Mama June is hitting the pageant circuit!"

Could it be? Could June be following in Honey Boo Boo's footsteps? Could she really be entering the world of beauty pageants?

Looks like it. There's really no other way to interpret all this.

"To be a pageant queen, one needs refinement, poise, charm," a fancy Englishman explains in a voiceover while June acts like June.

Just in this short little teaser, we see her burp, fart, and blow an air horn while good ol' Jennifer Lamb tries to talk to her.

"Mama June's hitting the pageant circuit," the voiceover announces, as she asks "Why the hell not, y'all?"

Why the hell not, y'all, indeed.

We don't have an exact premiere date yet, but come January 2018, Mama June will find her way back to our televisions.

… Yay?

Check out the teaser below:

Royals Urged to “Prepare” For Death of Queen Elizabeth II, Sources Claim

In April, Queen Elizabeth II turned 91 years old.

With 65 years on the throne, she’s one of the longest-reigning monarchs in recorded history, and she remains beloved across the globe thanks to her tireless humanitarian efforts and refreshingly no-nonsense attitude.

Sadly, if a new report is to be believed, the Queen’s health is failing, and her loved ones have been cautioned that she may be nearing the end.

Several media outlets are reporting today that the Queen’s private secretary, Sir Christopher Geidt, has advised her family to pack black clothing for any upcoming travel, as they may need to dress in appropriate mourning attire in the weeks to come.

There’s been no official word from Buckingham Palace, but it’s believed that the Queen is in failing health and being treated at home.

Thus far, there’s been no change in the Queen’s appearance schedule, but she’s been booking far fewer official engagements in recent years due to her advanced age.

Earlier this year, the Queen’s husband, Prince Philip, retired from public life at the age of 96.

Obviously, the Queen will be mourned throughout the world when she passes, but in some circles, talk has already turned to the matter of succession.

As Elizabeth’s eldest son, Prince Charles is next in line for the throne.

At the age of 68, he’s the oldest heir apparent for the British crown in over 200 years.

Since no royal engagements have been canceled, it seems the Queen isn’t yet on her deathbed, but the news that her her children and grandchildren have been warned to prepare for the worst is certainly discouraging.

Of course, until that report is confirmed by palace officials, it will remain mere speculation.

Reports of the Queen’s failing health have surfaced on several occasions in the past, and while there may have been genuine cause for concern, she’s persevered each time.

Thus far, representatives for the Royals have declined to comment.

Our thoughts go out to the Queen and her loved ones during what appears to be a tremendously difficult time.

We’ll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.


Ex-Lakers Player BURNED By Twerk Queen, I Ain’t Bangin’ You for a Plane Ticket!

Ex-Lakers player Jordan Hill is getting called out by one of the most famous booty models on the ‘Gram — with Ghetto Barbie claiming Hill tried to fly her out to smash, but she burned him good instead.  Here’s the deal … Ghetto Barbie and…


Meghan Markle: Did She FINALLY Meet the Queen?!

Rumors about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle getting engaged have been circulating pretty much from the day they went public as a couple. 

Everything we’ve seen seems to indicate that Harry and Meghan really are that serious and really will get hitched eventually.

Unfortunately, engagements are a bit more complicated for the Royals than they are for us plebes.

Harry can’t just swing by Kay Jewelers on his way home and pop the question over unlimited breadsticks at the Olive Garden.

There’s protocol to follow, traditions to be observed, old people whose asses need to be kissed.

Before anything can happen, for example, Harry and Meghan need the queen’s approval.

That sounds easy enough.

After all, Queen Elizabeth II is 91 years old.

It’s tough to imagine her raising too much of a fuss over her grandson wanting to get married.

That said, Meghan is something of a divisive figure around Buckingham Palace.

She’s an actress; she’s American; she’s been married before.

The Royals are a snooty bunch, and any of these things could be a deal-breaker for the Queen.

For Meghan, meeting the queen was reportedly a daunting prospect that’s been hanging over her head since she started dating Harry.

But according to Us Weekly, she and Harry finally bit the bullet earlier this month, and the encounter couldn’t have gone more smoothly.

Meghan and Harry traveled to Africa in August, in celebration of her 36th birthday.

Upon their return to the UK, they reportedly made the trip to the Queen’s summer residence in Scotland.

“Harry decided to take Meghan to visit as he hadn’t been up yet all summer,” says one insider, adding that the purpose of the trip was clear:

“He wanted to introduce Meghan to the Queen.”

So how did the long-awaited meet-and-greet go?

“It went well,” says the source, adding:

“It’ll no doubt be the first of many encounters.”

Obviously, the timing of the trip to Balmoral has fueled rumors that Harry and Meghan are secretly engaged.

Many believe that Harry popped the question during the trip to Africa, but wanted to wait for the queen’s approval before going public.

We’ll keep you posted as the Great Engagement Wait of 2017 continues.


Beauty Queen Asked to Lose Weight, Hands in Crown Instead!

With all the tragedy that’s been going on in the world lately, it feels like it’s high time for a nice, uplifting story, right?

And drop dead gorgeous beauty queen Zoiey Smale has just the thing!

That’s Zoiey. She’s really, really beautiful — and she’s also a size 10.

A size 10 in her native United Kingdom, that is. In U.S. sizes, she’s about a 6.

But why are we even talking about her dress size? Because, after winning a UK beauty pageant called Miss United Continents, she was informed that she needed to lose weight.

No, really. Someone actually looked at her and then told her that.

Not that that sort of body-shaming is OK anyway, but for real, look at this girl. In what universe does she need to lose weight?

As Zoiey explained in an interview with the Daily Mail, she won the UK title, but was expected to go on to compete for the international Miss United Continents title in Ecuador this month.

In July, the national pageant director called her up and told her that she had some “feedback” for her from the international director.

“She said to me ‘They want you to go on a diet plan and they want you to lose as much weight as possible for the finals.’ I was like, ‘Pardon?'”

“It was one of those things, in the 21st century you don’t actually expect people to be that blunt,” she added.

“I’m not big at all, I’m just bang on average. I just think to be told to lose as much weight as possible for a competition, why would people say that?” she continued.

“It’s horrible and it made me feel so rubbish about myself for a long, long time.”

Which is terribly sad, because obviously she’s not the one with the problem in this story.

She said that she hung up with the director and took time to consider how exactly to respond, because “I was so angry I didn’t just want to throw out insults.”

Eventually, “I said to my director, who was really supportive, that I don’t think someone should say that to girls, it’s awful and it’s horrible and it’s wrong.”

“I don’t think to be a good role model you have to be stick thin and I explained my reasoning that way.”

Finally, “I handed my title back because I’m not going to support a competition that can do that to people, I just think it’s so, so wrong.”

“People wonder why there’s a stigma behind beauty pageants and this is not really helping the matter.”

When she did the first part of the competition, the part for the UK title, she said that there was an emphasis on charity work, but things changed.

“This one took completely away from promoting giving,” she said. “It’s more you’ve got to be as stick thin as possible because that’s what the guys want to see.”

“So I just handed my title back and I just shut that door.”

Absolutely amazing.

Zoiey may no longer be the queen of this particular pageant, but we’re going to go ahead and say it …

She may have just landed a new title as the queen of our hearts.
