Mama June: From Not to Hot star, June Shannon has spent her money and since there is no salary this season she is looking forward to one. Reports indicate that WEtv doesn’t owe her anything after 10 episodes of the season. It seems she may not have appeared on Mama June: From Not to Hot enough this season to justify a paycheck.
Mama June: From Not to Hot: Mama June Just a Ghost This Season?
So far this season has been a rather sad situation, because Mama June’s family has collected the pieces of their lives destroyed. Mama June arrived just long enough for the fans to see her missing mother for most of the season.
The episodes passed without Mama June. But the cameras caught her coming out of the classroom. Apparently, that’s not enough to get the money she usually rakes in from her reality show.
The series even cancelled the title, like Mama June: The Family Crisis has taken over. Apparently the protagonist’s behavior is so unreliable that the network wasn’t ready for any June Shannon this season. But that’s about to change after Friday’s episode, when she showed up to talk to her daughter, Lauryn Shannon.
Mama June: From Not to Hot: An Inappropriate Family Crisis Switcharoo?
Instead of introducing the mama of this dysfunctional family this season, they highlighted the damage she did to the family.
Not only did this mom sell the kids’ house, but she also got rid of a lot of their stuff. The show may offer entertainment value to some people, but others see it differently.
Another camp sees this show as an exploitation of her children’s sadness, which is not an appropriate way to entertain. However, Mama June from Hot to Not remains a popular WEtv destination.
On Friday is Mama June: From Not to Hot episode, June was plucked out of the background. She appeared in front of and in the middle of the screen. She now claims to be sober and free again for the WEtv show.
While this puts a paycheck in the hands of Honey Boo Boo’s mother, it will probably also boost ratings. Some fans think this decision was made out of desperation by both June and the people behind the scenes.
