Mama June: From Not To Hot: Alana Thompson Told Lauryn Shannon She Wants To Stay With June
As early as March 2019, Mama June and her boyfriend Geno Doak were arrested in Alabama on drug charges, including controlled substance and drug use.
The Mama June: From Not to Hot stars have since focused on their sobriety while living in Florida.
Meanwhile, Mama June’s youngest daughter Alana has been living with Lauryn Shannon and her husband Josh. In the teaser clip, Alana Thompson – and Lauryn Shannon visited 41-year-old Mama June and her boyfriend Geno Doak at their Florida home.
While spending time with the couple, Alana Thompson told her older sister, “I wanted to see if you and Josh wouldn’t mind if I stayed here a little longer.” She said: “I was gonna see if you and Josh don’t mind if I just stayed here a little bit extra.”
After Alana Thompson said Mama June and Geno Doak would book her a return flight, he added: “It’s just so nice to see Mama how she is. It’s kind like she’s old Mama now.”
Lauryn Shannon said she liked seeing Mama June in a better place, though continued, “Let’s not forget what they have done and that still are under a year sober. And just like Dr. Ish told us, statistically they are supposed to fail.” Alana Thompson replied: “I wanna be around Mama. I haven’t been around her in a minute and she’s back sober- her and Geno both.”
The older sister said it’s “pushing it” that Alana Thompson could stay with the couple while they focus on their sobriety, though the teen countered, “It’s not that much longer.”
In a confessional interview, Lauryn Shannon admitted she understood why Alana Thompson wanted to stay longer with Mama June in Florida. However, he said he was “worried that Alana Thompson may never want to come back home because there is finer things in Florida than there is back in Georgia”. When Alana Thompson asked if she was allowed to be with her mother, Lauryn Shannon said, “Yes, I think so.
