Mama June admits she & boyfriend Geno 'were not prepared' for surprise court appearance after 24 hour notice

03/27/2021

MAMA June insisted she and boyfriend Geno Doak "were not prepared" for their surprise court appearance.

The couple showed up to court after a 24 hour notice during Friday's episode of Mama June: Road to Redemption.

In the episode, the 41-year-old and her 45-year-old boyfriend prepared to appear in front of a judge after they were caught with a controlled substance and faced drug paraphernalia charges.

Geno- who was charged with felony possession of crack cocaine and a misdemeanor crack pipe charge- seemed especially nervous during the episode.

Reflecting on the last time the couple was in court, June said they "behaved in the courtroom" though "made a big scene" while outside.

A flashback clip then showed Geno shouting that he was innocent and exclaiming: "They owe us a million dollars."



June admitted: 'I mean, maybe that wasn't the right thing to do."

Geno said he hoped the judge would forgive him because he was not in the "right frame of mind" at the time.   

A producer then asked the couple how they were feeling ahead of the hearing.

June- whose real name is June Shannon- said their lawyer made them "really concerned" and that they had "no idea what the f**k" was going to happen" inside the courtroom.


Before heading into the hearing, she said: "Honestly, I'm nervous. I could do two years and Geno could do ten years."

She explained that the pair was planning to get a continuance as they were not prepared and "had no idea" they "had to be at court."

June reiterated in a confessional: 'We're not prepared. I don't feel comfortable going in there."

As the Mama June: From Not to Hot star has been focusing on her sobriety, the mother has been estranged from her youngest daughter Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, 15.

Alana fell into her sister Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon's care after June was arrested for possession of crack cocaine and a crack pipe.




Though the couple is now over a year sober, the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star still lives with her sister Lauryn, 21.

The Sun recently revealed that Lauryn is so skeptical of her mother's recovery that she refuses to let her know where she's living with Alana.

While chatting with her aunt, who had told them that June had come by to find out information on her daughters, Pumpkin told her: "No ma'am. I don't even know why she's trying to come back around.

"Yeah she's reach out to me but I'm not ready to talk to you yet, y'know? Like, are you even sober?"

Alana asked her aunt: "How did she look?"

The aunt told the girls their mother was looking "much better than she did a year ago."

Later, Alana confessed to the camera that she's excited to see June.

She said: "I'm not going to forget the way mama treated us but, like, I'm really excited to see her now that she's sober. I mean, she is my only mom."

The mother and grandmother has four daughters: Anna, 26, Jessica, 24, Pumpkin and Alana.
