What happened between Honey Boo Boo and Mama June?

MOTHER-daughter duo Honey Boo Boo and Mama June garnered fame for their appearances on reality television.

Throughout their years together on television, Mama June has not always seen eye to eye with Honey Boo Boo and the rest of her daughters.

What happened between Honey Boo Boo and Mama June?

On March 23, 2019, June Shannon – known as Mama June to the public – was arrested for drug possession alongside her then-boyfriend, Geno Doak.

Geno was also arrested and was charged with third-degree domestic violence, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Around the same time, June's addiction resulted in the fallout between her and her daughters.

The four-time mother has daughters, Anna, Jessica, Pumpkin, and Alana.

In May 2019, Alana – famous to the public as Honey Boo Boo – moved in with her older sister Pumpkin.

Honey Boo Boo gave her mother a request to ditch her crime-ridden boyfriend Geno and get sober – or else she'd move out.

Mama June stayed with Geno, and Pumpkin became Alana's legal guardian.

The next couple of years saw June estranged from her daughters until she revealed her breakup from Geno on August 16, 2021.

Viewers were able to see how far the hurt went between the mother and her daughters on an episode of Mama June: From Not to Hot.

On May 31, 2019, the family staged an intervention for June – which saw Alana speak out regarding June's drug addiction and arrest.

The reality star told her mother: "Do you not understand that I am staying with my sister, and that's not by choice!"

As she broke down, Honey Boo Boo tearfully expressed that it was "not her choice" to move in with Pumpkin.

Older sister Pumpkin came to Alana's defense and confirmed that the fallout was "not by choice" and "she did not feel safe in the house."

She also shared her struggles with being a mother and caring for her sister and said, "It's hard taking care of Alana and taking care of Ella. It feels like I'm drowning."

Alana spoke through the tears and added: "I'm scared; I'm not going to lie to you. I am scared to stay at your house."

The family matriarch admitted she had done thousands of dollars worth of drugs a day.

Did Mama June reconcile with Honey Boo Boo and her other daughters?

On April 9, 2021, Mama June reunited with Honey Boo Boo and Pumpkin for the reunion episode of Mama June: Road to Redemption.

During the episode, Alana told June: "You don't know how many nights I cried myself to sleep just hoping and praying that you didn't overdose."

"God, please don't let my mom die. Please just hold onto her. Just please!"

"I just wanted you there, and even if I texted your phone, I wouldn't even get a text back, so hell, I never knew if you were alive or dead anyways."

June shared her side of the story and said: "I couldn't take care of myself."

"I know I was selfish when I went to rehab, and to be honest with you, I'm still a little bit selfish in my recovery."

"But I'm willing to do whatever it takes to get you all back in my life, and that's the reason why I'm here today."

Months later, on June 7, all four daughters reunited with their mother for Pumpkin's second baby shower – she was expecting her son Bentley.

June and Alana also competed in the sixth American cycle of The Masked Singer.

On November 3, 2021, the mother-daughter duo was unmasked as Beach Ball.

Ahead of the season six premiere of her eponymous series, June gave an update about her relationship with Alana, Lauryn, and her two older daughters.

On Monday, May 9, 2022, she told US Weekly: "It [is] always is a work in progress."

"For people to be able to move on, you’ve got to stop."

She further disclosed: "If you keep on living in the past, all you’re gonna do is keep looking back, and you’re not gonna see what’s in the front windshield."

"We see each other. We talk. They know when they need me, I’m here."

While referring to Alana, she mentioned, "She can be a brat and a diva all in one."

"And so those stages that Alana gets quiet and there are stages that she talks … she’s all over the place."

She also referenced Lauryn's pregnancy news and said: "You just have to watch the show to see…we don’t ever believe everything you hear on Google."
