WeTV documented Shannon's experience on the reality television show From Not to Hot, which showed her losing the weight in advance of her ex's wedding. She dropped from 460 pounds to 132 pounds by the end of the show.
On the weight loss show, Lauryn Thompson and her 12-year-old sister, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, sometimes participated with June Shannon while she exercised and dieted. Now there are rumors Alana Thompson might get a weight loss show of her own. Perhaps Lauryn Thompson will document her pregnancy in the family's next project, whatever that might be.
