The pressure is insane.

June's publicist Gina says she represents a ton of reality TV stars, but she and June are actually friends, she says. As a publicist, she tells June she's "not going to be bookable" because being big is a whole part of her brand. Then, you can hear the glimmer in her voice when she talks about the possibility of a total transformation (it's icky, even though I'm sure it's not the first time she's actually hearing about it), and she says,"If you did lose all this weight, you could get a lot of endorsement deals." Oy.

As a "friend," Gina tells June that she's "pissed off" when, initially, June doesn't take dieting seriously. June says she was afraid of disappointing Gina (valid, given the way she talks to her), and that she doesn't understand the struggles as a "big person" to lose "all this weight." June's daughter, Pumpkin, chimes in at one point, saying, "Mama needs somebody to be positive towards her, she doesn't need to stress herself out." Very true, and also she doesn't necessarily need a TV crew following her around, but baby steps.
