Honey Boo Boo’s mom got all glitzy for the GLAAD Media Awards.  

June Thompson, known as Mama June, sported a black wrap dress, sparkly headband and hot pink lipstick for the event held Saturday, Us Weekly reports.

The 33-year-old’s glammed-up look comes after the "sketti"-making mom lost more than 100 pounds since filming “Honey Boo Boo” for TLC two years ago, according to TMZ.

Thompson credits the hit show to her weight loss.

"I haven't done any surgeries ... no diet pills ... never went to the gym," Thompson told TMZ. "But with the show, I've been more active."

“Honey Boo Boo” was one of the reality programs nominated at the GLAAD Media Awards for its positive portrayal of the LGBT community, according to the news outlet.

In an earlier episode, Alana, aka “Honey Boo Boo,” said, "Everybody's a little gay" in response to her uncle Lee Thompson's “Uncle Poodle” coming out.

The rest of the Thompson clan, including Alana, didn’t attend the awards ceremony. They were filming back at home in Georgia, Thompson told Us Weekly.

"This is my first trip without her, and I do miss her,” Thompson said about Alana. “But we did Facetime while I was getting ready. It was really sweet. We showed her that it was snowing."

Mama June took advantage of the night without her kids. She even snapped an Instagram photo with "Jersey Shore" reality show stars Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jennifer "JWoww" Farley.
