Mama June got the skin removal surgery she thought she wanted on Friday's episode of From Not to Hot, but it turns out, recovery is a lot harder than she expected.
Last week's episode of the WE tv series saw June's manager, Gina, cancel her tummy tuck and breast lift after she failed to get down to the 190 pounds her doctor required for the surgery, but the move might have been the reality check she needed to stop stress eating and get back in shape.
Honey Boo Boo and Pumpkin staged an intervention at the beginning of Friday's episode, rescheduling their mom's surgery for a couple weeks later, and promising to help her drop the weight.
"We're going to be just like a bra. We're going to help her when she's sagging, and we're going to make her look as good as possible," Pumpkin told the camera as she and Honey Boo Boo accompanied their mom on a bike ride with trainer Kenya.
While Mama June got back to exercising, she had still been lying to Kenya about cheating on her diet -- which blew up in her face after Honey Boo Boo found her secret stash of junk food. Finally with her secret out in the open, however, June decided to get some help, and attended a support group.
Though Mama June was three pounds over her doctor's requirement, she was able to have the surgery as planned... but not before a tearful goodbye as she left Pumpkin and Honey Boo Boo and headed to L.A. for three weeks.
Surgery wasn't everything June hoped it would be, however. "My body looks like Frankenstein and I hate that I did this," she said as her doctor removed her bandages. "At this point, I can't imagine going through another surgery."
Weeks later, the mother of four still wasn't feeling ready for round two -- which would remove her "bat wings" and "turkey neck" -- and even fired Gina for pressuring her.
Being back at home wasn't any better for June. "I could care less about the dress. I could care less about this wedding," she told Pumpkin and Honey Boo Boo, before retreating to her bedroom to hide out -- and throwing her revenge dress in the garbage.
Mama June: From Not to Hot airs Fridays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on WE tv.
