June Shannon: Clean, Sober... and Still with Geno Doak

by at .  Updated at .

Reality star and celebrity gossip staple June Shannon has allegedly moved on from her very dangerous drug habit.

But not from her very dangerous lover.

June and Geno Doak Go to Rehab

As depicted on Friday's season finale of Mama June: Family Crisis, the reality show's title character shocked WE tv (WeTv? We TV?) viewers and even her own kids by actually checking into rehab.

And then even more shockingly, by actually sticking it out and completing an entire 30-day in-patient program.

Prior to finishing this treatment, the troubled mother of four conceded that she was a crackhead, which we knew.

"It got to the point where being able to afford a hotel and being able to live just was not possible," she said.

"So then we started sleeping in the Suburban."

She later dropped the A-Word for the first time we can recall, confessing:

"My addiction to crack cocaine, cocaine, I didn't think I was an addict."

"Now that we're ready [to leave], I am definitely an addict."

Previously, June had come right out and said she "lost my vision" as the result of a cocaine habit that sometimes cost her $1,500.

A day. Not total, that's every day.

At the conclusion of the finale, June said her main goal was "getting our kids back and getting our lives back together," referring to both herself and her seemingly awful boyfriend, Geno Doak.

Considering all the ways Shannon has let her daughters down - due to her drug addiction - will she actually succeed?

Sounds like fodder for another season, doesn't it? (Obviously.)

For now, however, Shannon has taken to Instagram to first claim she is five months clean...

... and to also ask for money for a family friend who passed away.

Wrote June on social media after Friday's episode aired:

"HELLO I DIDN’T MAKE THE GO FUND ME I HAVE MONEY IM SHARING IT ON BEHALF OF HIS FAMILY SO PLZ STOP WITH THE B******"

"WE LOST A DEAR FRIEND TO A HORRIBLE DISEASE OF ADDICTION WE R CLEAN N HAPPY TODAY IS ACTUALLY 5 MTHS."

June Shannon is Apprehensive

We can't translate that any better than you can, but she appears very serious due to her use of CAPS LOCK and it seems she's adamant that she personally is not asking for your money.

More significantly, as you can see, Shannon continues to use the pronoun we.

Why?

Because photographic evidence (below) from the weekend proves that June is still very much with the toxic Geno.

Guess we can't say we're shocked, considering Shannon and Doak both completed their rehab stints together.

“We made it through inpatient together, so we’re just gonna make a fresh new start for us," she said.

Shannon, as you can see, has shed a whole heck of a lot of weight since her infamously plus-300 pound days.

Doak, as you can also seen, has not.

"Oh my God I just got a scale today," Doak wrote on Instagram along with a photo of a scale that read 304 pounds.

"Between June and I getting clean and the Coronavirus we totally need to lose some weight and this is not our combined weight this is only mine."

But is Geno actually off the crack?

Will it finally be a good influence on Mama June?

June on TV

Yes, Doak claimed in a response to a fan online, claiming the only high he gets these days is from old-fashioned endorphins:

“I get high off a good workout but COVID19 has made that a bit difficult too. However I feel good about my recovery."

"Thanks for the support."

For a couple who seemed hopelessly addicted to coke and meth just a few short months (maybe even weeks) ago?

As skeptical as we are that this is for real, you have to give the troubled twosome credit for trying to turn this around.

And we obviously hope it takes.

Part of us thinks they'll stay on a positive path, although as we've seen, June and Geno have let people down before.

That's putting it mildly.

It's certainly a sentiment that everyone - from fans to the Shannon family and others in their orbit - share at this point.

When Sugar Bear's wife starts getting on her high horse about things, you know how bad the situation has gotten ...

What do you think? Can Geno and June stay clean and continue on a road to redemption for more than a few months?

Or are we destined to cover even more tragic tales of relapses and crying family members - or worse - later this year?
