Mama June Shannon is no stranger to drama, but the latest Family Crisis episode is proving to be a tough pill to swallow. In the upcoming episode airing this Friday, Mama June’s husband, Justin Stroud, drops a bombshell that has her reeling. He tells her that their marriage is not what he wanted and that he only agreed to the courthouse wedding because she asked him while he was in jail.
The WEtv star’s anger builds as she reminds him that he was also at the courthouse that day to sign the papers. But Justin has more to say, citing his recent stay at rehab as something he should have taken into consideration before exchanging vows. He tells her that he was emotionally messed up at the time and wasn’t emotionally into their marriage.
Mama June is understandably worried and defensive, fearing the worst that her health issues and the age difference are becoming an issue for him. The sneak peek video leaves viewers hanging as to what Justin’s response will be, but one thing is for sure: the Shannon family is in for one wild and chaotic season.
Mama June: Family Crisis: The Background of Mama June’s Family Crisis
Mama June: From Not to Hot premiered on WEtv in 2017 and followed the reality star’s weight loss journey. The show was a hit with viewers and was renewed for multiple seasons. But things took a turn when Mama June’s relationship with her ex-boyfriend, Geno Doak, began to spiral out of control due to their drug use.
In March 2019, Mama June and Geno were arrested on drug possession charges. The arrest led to the cancellation of her show and a legal battle. In August 2019, Mama June and Geno pleaded not guilty to the charges and the case is still ongoing.
Mama June’s daughter, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, was placed in the custody of her sister, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, and her husband, Joshua Efird. The family continued to struggle with Mama June’s addiction and legal issues, leading to the spin-off show, Mama June: Family Crisis.
