From Not to Hot star Mama June was dramatically rushed to hospital in the latest episode of her reality TV show. On Friday’s show, viewers saw the 37-year-old star, who recently slimmed down from 460 pounds to a size four, in severe pain at the end of the episode. Mama June - real name June Shannon - said to her daughters, Alana and Lauryn: “My stomach, I can’t even get up, “I should have gone to the hospital last night. I really hope I haven’t pushed my body too far.” Earlier on, doctors had warned Mama June of the risks associated from her recent gastric band surgery, which could lead to blood clots or infection. The star took to her Twitter page to tell her followers about the incident. She wrote: “OMG I’m in so much pain. I was scared to death, I didn’t know what was going on.”

Viewers will have to wait until the culmination of next week’s two-part show finale to find out the reason behind Mama’s health scare. Her followers on Twitter were worried about the health of their favourite reality star, with one posting: “Hope you are better now?!” and another saying, “I’m so concerned about you!” One fan sympathised, writing: “Been thru that too…had gastric bypass 16 years ago but it was still worth it. Good luck & keep it up!” Whatever was wrong with Mama June, she appears to have recovered as she was back to posting upbeat messages on her page. “Definitely a night of TV u don’t want to miss,” posted Mama June about the Friday night episode.
