June Shannon has had a downfall the likes of which has perhaps never been seen in showbiz. The once extremely popular reality TV star, known to the world over as Mama June, was detained on drug possession charges in March 2019, and her life has been a downhill tumble since then.
Following her felony and misdemeanor charges, she became estranged with the rest of her family and the future of her reality TV show ‘Mama June: From Not To Hot’ was in doubt.
Things were looking up for fans when Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon hinted at a possible fourth season.
Pumpkin's Instagram post fuelled rumors of a new season but hinted nothing of June's return to the show.
While on the superficial level, June, at least to her fans, may seem to be a deserving member for the show, but nothing of such sort have been mentioned on a concrete level by the concerned department, reasons being more than one.
Well, the reluctance coming from the casting team may hugely concern her past misdemeanour and disorderly present.
Putting it straight, June is not the wholesome motherly figure she portrays on the screen and her family has been caught in the crossfire time and again due to her lack of good judgment.
However, considering a massive expectation coming from her fans, let's analyze if she will make a comeback in the show.
June's fall from grace is a cautionary tale for everyone about the dark side of fame. Here is a person, beloved, and had her reality show and all the glitz and glamor that comes with it.
But after a string of horrible decisions, a lack of insight, and an inability to introspect, her career seems over. June is estranged from her family, sold her stable home for a mobile one, and faces felony charges.
Only time will tell whether Mama June is returning to the reality TV show or not. The central character of From Not to Hot, her fans are clamoring for her return, but considering her recent behavior, it is understandable why her family and the showrunners are reluctant to advertise her return.
A walking time-bomb, June hardly exudes the image of a stable person. She recently surfaced looking disheveled and as down-in-the-dumps as ever. She also noticeably had one of her front teeth missing, prompting eagled-eyes fans to speculate domestic abuse, for which her boyfriend is notorious.
Here are a few other factors that stand against her favor and maximize the chances of her not being cast on the TV programme.
The Shannon family is no stranger to controversy. Mama June came under fire for rekindling her romance with the man who molested her daughter. Her terrible oversight led to TLC canceling her TV show at the time, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
Foregoing things that happened in the past, June's recent behavior indicates a lack of personal growth and no sense of responsibility.
In March 2019, June and her boyfriend Eugene "Geno" Doak were indicted under charges of possession of narcotic substances.
She and Geno were found with crack cocaine and a crack pipe in their possession, leading to felony and misdemeanor charges.
June also sold her Georgia home for far less than its worth to continue fueling her vices and spent most of 2019 living in a mobile home and making the rounds of casinos.
Following her indictment, her already rocky relationship with the rest of her family turned cold, and while she is on speaking terms, the damage has already been done.
