Mama June Shannon has her work cut out for her as she tries to stay sober … telling us it’s a daily struggle to avoid her addiction while trying to repair her relationship with her family. The reality star joined us Friday on “TMZ Live” for an uplifting conversation about how she’s turning her life around after her astronomically expensive drug addiction.
Not only did she temporarily lose her family, but it also cost her nearly $1 million — the amount she says she and her boyfriend Geno lost in drugs in the year before they got clean.
Mama June Shannon tells us that she has to remain patient in her fight to get back in her children’s good graces, and while she admits that she’s been hit and miss so far … she’s not letting it deter her from staying present and keeping in touch. Alana Thompson’s mom says she and Geno entered rehab in January 2020, and have been sober ever since – but says battling their addiction when they got out was complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mama June Shannon explained how she used social media to hold herself accountable for her sobriety while facing life in quarantine. One more thing…she’s back on TV: “Mama June: Road to Redemption” debuts Friday night on WeTV, but June says she’s focused on her daily battles…for sobriety and family.
I have to say, it’s really remarkable to see where Mama June Shannon is today, compared to her low points in 2019. If you weren’t rooting for her before, this might change your mind.
