"I wanted to also show Sugar Bear," Mama June shared. "He really made me feel like s**t [and] I wanted to show him, 'Hey, I can do [whatever] I want to do'… I wanted to show him, like, I am actually worth it."
Mama June and her ex split up in September 2014. Not long after, Sugar Bear sparked up a relationship with a new woman, Jennifer, and according to Mama June, it was this development that motivated her drive for a revenge body.

"I don't know and don't really care [what he thinks]," she admitted.
As documented on her new reality series, Sugar Bear actually invited Mama June to his wedding, which ended up being the first time he saw her after she underwent $50,000 in cosmetic surgery to slim down.
According to the former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star, going to her ex's wedding was understandably "awkward."
"I told him that he made me feel like s**t, honestly," Mama June shared.
"I think after this show people are asking me what [kind of person he] really is," she added. "I'd say not Father of the Year material."
Mama June also got candid about her current love life, but the mother of four said she really doesn't have any interest in finding a new love right now, and that it's been tough meeting men "that are genuine."
"I gave it up. It isn't worth it," she shared. "There's jerks and douchebags and you never know who is gonna be here for you."
