It's been a bizarre couple of years for the reality star once known as "Mama June" Shannon.

These days, June seems to have dropped the "Mama" from name, and we can't say we blame her.

After all, based on some shocking recent reports, parenting is not her strong suit.

First, the world learned that June was dating Mark McDaniel - a man who previously spent ten years in prison for molesting Shannon's eldest daughter, Anna.

(Just let that sink in, even if you're already aware of it.)

Shortly thereafter, June was accused of stealing from Anna.

After several weeks of public denials, she confessed and returned the money.

Maybe June had to hit rock bottom in order to turn things around.

Or maybe in the absence of a camera crew, she realized there's nothing all that funny about her family's eating habits.

Whatever the case, Mama June has has re-focused on her health and lost a bit of weight.

Make that a lot of weight:

Yes, it's hard to believe, but that's the same Mama June you used to know and somewhat tolerate.

It's surprising that the reality star found time to diet and exercise, what with her busy schedule and all.

You know, promoting her upcoming appearance at Larry Flynt's annual WTF?! Weekend alongside Bubba Sparxxx and porn star Jesse Jane.

(Sadly, we're not joking.)

June hasn't revealed any of her weight loss secrets, but they may be forthcoming.

Several outlets have reported that the 36-year-old (yes, she's only 36) filmed much of her weight loss journey in hopes of landing a reality show.

To that, we roll our eyes, but have to say:

Would you really expect otherwise?

So, the good news is that she lost a lot of weight, which has to be good for her chances of living beyond her 40th birthday.

Seriously, she looks great and we're happy for her, both for the improvement in self-confidence as well as overall cardiac health.

The bad news is that she may be back on TV.

Call it a slight net positive ... or a wash.

However you want to score it, you just have to take the good with the horrendously awful when it comes to Mama June.

That much we can tell you for sure.
