Honey Boo Boo on a media blitz touting Mama June's new look and show

Honey Boo Boo (Alana Thompson) and her sister Pumpkin (Lauryn Shannon) are making the media rounds to promote their mom "Mama June" Shannon's new show and new look.

The new WE network show, “Mama June: Not to Hot,” launches Friday.

"She's actually living a more healthier lifestyle and a more happier lifestyle," Alana tells Inside Edition, one of the media outlets the family is visiting this week as the new show approaches.

Personal trainer Kenya Crooks whipped Mama June into shape and promises a stunning transformation.

"This is going to be epic," he tells Inside Edition.

Honey Boo Boo says Mama June's new look is so dramatic, some viewers might think it's not really her. The new WE show also documents Mama's attempts to find love again (she and Sugar Bear went on a "Marriage Boot Camp" show, you may recall, but it didn't take).

"Not very well," Honey Boo Boo says, assessing her mom's dating game. "She has met people but she does not stay with people."

Here's a sneak peek:

From the WE folks:

“After failing to save her relationship with Sugar Bear on Marriage Boot Camp, Mama June has set out to reinvent not only her personal life, but her appearance as well. She’s decided to go under the knife for extreme weight loss surgery in an attempt to not only to look hot, but to improve her health for herself and her daughters. In Mama June: From Not to Hot she works to reclaim her life one intense workout at a time, with a few bumps along the road. From disastrous dates to Sugar Bear’s new fiancé, Mama June attempts to defy the odds and become nearly unrecognizable! Here are five reasons you can’t miss the series premiere!”
