June Shannon: Family Begs Her to Quit Geno, Drugs Before It's Too Late

by at .

Summer ended last week, but Mama June's scandalous, trashy version of Hot Girl Summer rages on.

She's been indicted on federal drug charges and has also abandoned her damaged house in favor of living in an RV with Geno.

The only piece of good news is that her family hasn't given up on her. They're still trying to save her life.

June Shannon Looks Odd

TMZ reports that Mama June's family is still pushing for an intervention -- even after the one that failed earlier this year.

According to various sources, June's sister, Joanne, is leading the charge to try to talk some sense into June.

The troubled reality star desperately needs professional help to address her addiction issues.

She can't get that when she's traveling around with Geno.

In fact, as Joanne knows good and well, June doesn't change a snowball's chance in hell of recovery so long as Geno is in her life.

So, as we previously reported, June and Geno went to court on Wednesday of last week.

You may recall that Geno decided to hurl obscenities and homophobic slurs at photographers. Classy guy.

Well, TMZ was there, and noted that Joanne was, too.

She and Mama June hugged outside of the courthouse.

But what's more significant is that Joanne tried, right then and there, to put some space between June and her garbage fire of a boyfriend.

Joanne followed June and Geno to their car.

She was apparently asking and then begging June to come and get lunch with her, just one-on-one.

June declined ... and was then seen closing the door on her sister.

More like slamming it, actually.

This isn't Joanne's first time at the courthouse. She was there earlier in September, but June was a no-show.

Sources say that Joanne has also been desperately trying to reach June on her phone, to no avail.

Our sympathies go out to Joanne, but to be honest, we didn't really expect for her to succeed where an organized intervention failed.

Earlier this year, June was surrounded by professionals, her family, and even a pastor.

Though Alana pleaded through tears for her mother to get help, June declined.

Specifically, she refused to take part in any sort of inpatient treatment -- which ruled out going to rehab.

One thing in particular kept her from taking that life-saving route, and it's the same thing that prevented her from grabbing lunch with Joanne.

Geno Doak at Lunch

Geno Doak has been a horrible influence, undoing years of work that June underwent to overcome her previously terrible life.

And June is clinging to him for dear life.

It was Lauryn who had to explain to From Not To Hot viewers that June refuses to leave Geno out of fear.

If she's not with him to watch him every minute, she worries that he'll cheat, leave her, or both.

To June, in her current state of mind, she'd rather keep an eye on Geno than save her life by addressing her addiction.

Geno Doak with Mama

June has given up everything for Geno -- not just her sobriety and reputation.

Her money has "mysteriously" seemed to vanish, after weeks or even months of living out of hotels, gambling, and additional alleged drug use.

Her once-beautiful house now has mysterious damage to its exterior, including some broken and missing windows.

It has some not-so-mysterious damage to the garage, where Geno plowed the SUV into it in an incident that was caught on video.

Worst of all, she lost her daughter. Alana will have nothing to do with her until she drops Geno.

The only person who can decide to make a life-saving change is June.
