Honey Boo Boo’s mum Mama June may lose TV show after drug charges

The Advertiser 2019-08-19 12:26:00

“Mama June” Shannon may lose her reality show over her lifestyle with boyfriend Geno Doak — and the potential drug charges each of them faces.

Mama June first rose to fame starring on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, based around her daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, before getting her own reality TV show in 2017.

TMZ reports the channel that makes Mama June: From Not to Hot, which airs on Foxtel, may cut ties with the troubled 40-year-old matriarch following her crack cocaine arrest in March and her conduct following the bust.

Sources told the site producers tried to help Mama June but she refused.

While they won’t abandon her on a personal level, insiders claimed the potential for a fourth season of Mama June: From Not to Hot rested on whether or not she would clean up her act.

Mama June reportedly has been behaving erratically, with The Sunreporting that she and Doak were selling off many of her personal possessions, including her own bed, two desks, a car stereo, coat hangers and various toys. A video obtained byTMZ from inside the home indicates the property is mostly empty.

Mama June’s net worth was estimated to be in the $US1 million range, but insiders have suspected she’s squandered her reality TV fortune on gambling and substance abuse since dating Doak.

Mama June’s most famous daughter, Alana, has moved out of Mama June’s home and has been living with big sister Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon.

Mama June was arrested at a gas station in Alabama last March on suspicion of felony possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.

Doak was arrested on accusations including possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia as well as domestic violence.

Pumpkin and Alana, along with other family members, attempted an intervention for Mama June, but she reportedly has refused to leave Doak despite the dire alleged circumstances in which the romance has been mired.

Reps for WeTV, the network who makes Mama June: From Not to Hot, did not comment.
