For a while there, it looked like June Shannon was really turning things around.
Now, however, the freshly made-over Mama June is so severely addicted to drugs that loved ones fear for her life.
Recently, June’s family held an intervention for the troubled reality star, and like just about everything the Honey Boo Boo clan does these days, the whole thing was documented by a camera crew.
The move was a response not only to June’s recent arrest for possession of crack cocaine, but also to the reality star’s deteriorating health issues.
Unfortunately, based on a preview for the newest episode of From Not to Hot, it doesn’t look as though June was very open to the concerns of her loved ones.
The family is clearly concerned not only by June’s drug use, but also by her abusive relationship with boyfriend Geno Doak.
The situation has become so dire that June’s youngest daughter, Alana — aka Honey Boo Boo — has been living with her older sister.
In the clip above, June argues that her daughter moved out by choice — but a tearful Alana disagrees.
In addition to the fact that she’s unable to care for her children, June’s substance abuse has reportedly destroyed her health.
Insiders say drugs have nearly killed June several times already, and her family fears that the 39-year-old won’t live much longer if she continues on her current path.
Comments on recent clips from Not to Hot are littered with observations about June’s various symptoms.
"I don’t know how none of them see that they both obviously were on drugs," asserts one fan.
"I mean June’s eye is messed up normally but she and Geno both show classic signs of drug abuse."
"Her constant jaw grinding, slurred speech. And eyes rolling around are classic," says another commenter.
"It’s common for folks to develop new addictions after weight loss surgery."
Many fans have suggested that June’s addictions are at least partially tied to her severe weight loss in recent months.
Shannon is unrecognizable from her former self following a series of invasive weight loss surgeries.
However, those surgeries and her new lifestyle have left her unable to engage in the binge eating that used to serve as her number one addiction.
Now, June is suffering from a wide variety of health issues, and sources claim she’s on the verge of total tooth loss as a result of her drug use.
And June’s relationship with Doak certainly isn’t helping matters.
Fans saw a glimmer of hope when June caught Geno sexting another woman, but recent reports indicate that Shannon is trying to save her relationship with Doak despite his apparent cheating.
Here’s hoping June’s family is able to convince her to seek help before it’s too late.
