It’s never easy to look at your family through the lens of a true story. That’s what happens to 21-year-old reality star Lauryn Shannon. Lauryn of Mama June fame opened up about being in the public eye for so long. She also talked about the impact of having no personal life and the consequences of that. Mama June’s daughter Lauryn Shannon spoke candidly about how she saw her mother’s struggle with addiction and recovery. She also spoke about their strained relationship.
In a candid interview with ET Online, Lauryn talked about the difficulties of being a star of a reality series. She said it’s hard because she deals with everything personally. And then she also has to film it all. The star revealed that it’s been three shows in a row.
She confirmed that even the current season is hard because she has to go back to the past which puts her in a lot of “wear and tear” both physically and mentally. Her daughter says she doesn’t want to go back to the mental place she was in when her mother was an addict.
It was a hard time for her because she had to get up, do all the things and not look after herself well. Even after all the therapy and suicide, Lauryn doesn’t want to go back to her past.
