The Shannon family found fame from the spin-off from her daughter’s TLC reality series, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, which was a spin-off from the famed pageant show Toddlers and Tiaras.

But the fame came at a price for the matriarch of the brood as she only recently reconnected with her daughters amid a devastating addiction and legal issues.

Mama June revealed she spent nearly $1 million on drugs during the height of her addiction to crack cocaine with boyfriend Geno Doak. 

While Shannon found her own fame and a new body on Mama June: From Not to Hot while losing 300 pounds via weight-loss surgery and going from a size 18 to a size 4, she also spiraled into a world of drugs and gambling.

‘I would say the last year of our addiction, probably a good $900,000,’ she told Access Hollywood. ‘So much money was sent to our dope man.’

The 41-year-old reality star was arrested in 2019 for cocaine possession and, at one point, was on the open road with boyfriend Geno Doak, after reportedly selling her home in Georgia for $100,000 in cash. 

In October 2019, Shannon and Doak pleaded not guilty to crack cocaine possession but are still both facing charges of felony drug possession stemming from a March arrest in Alabama.  

Her daughter Alana, aka Honey Boo Boo, has been living with her sister Pumpkin throughout the turmoil and it was reported at the time that June and Geno were living in an Alabama casino.

The We TV network has been the home of Shannon’s makeover show From Not to Hot since 2017 and producers have scrambled to get her the help she needs following her crack cocaine arrest.
