Mama June and her family are going through a downward spiral, and it's all been documented for reality television! In the official synopsis for the fourth season of Mama June: From Not to Hot, WE tv shares that it will follow the family as they “cope with the fallout of Mama’s arrest, drug addiction and dysfunctional relationship with boyfriend Geno. Leaning on each other for strength and support, the family struggles together to maintain hope for June’s healthy return".
Honey Boo Boo family's legal issues and troubling controversy
As Entertainment Tonight reports, the past few years have been turbulent for "Mama June" Shannon and the rest of the Honey Boo Boo family. When the Mama June series began in 2017, it was intended to chronicle Shannon's weight loss journey, as she dropped an astounding 300 pounds. However, Shannon and her boyfriend Geno Doak became entrenched in legal trouble in 2019 after being arrested for possession of crack cocaine.
To add to the family's controversy even more, a video was shared online that showed Shannon's daughter Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson appearing to snort some kind of powder. A new promo trailer for the fourth season of Mama June shows Shannon and Doak in court, as well as daughter Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon staging an emotional intervention.
"Will June finally hit her rock bottom and seek professional help? Can she return to the family as the ‘old June’ they all miss terribly?" the synopsis goes on to ask. "Can love and belief in each other get them through a family crisis that is all too relatable to thousands of American families?”
