Mama June: From Not to Hot – June Shannon Goes Through the Motions
June’s “last chance at recovery takes an unexpected turn” on this coming Friday’s episode, according to the previews from Xfinity. It looks as if homeless and broke Mama is still not at the place she needs to be to make a successful effort at rehab.

Mama June: From Not to Hot – Why June Shannon Idolizes Geno?
Fans of Mama June: From Not to Hot don’t need a refresher course on the many ways Geno Doak controls Mama June. But Pumpkin really needed a better understanding of what’s going on with her mother.
Pumpkin doesn’t understand the control Geno has over Mama June. She also worries that while her mom stopped her drug use, if Geno decides to start back into drugs, Mama will follow.
Dr. Ish explained the huge transformation her mother went through – From Not to Hot, as the title goes. June knew who she was before she lost all that weight and underwent a complete makeover. She doesn’t know who she is today.
Then Geno walks into her life and she’s got a guy who is closer to normal than her previous relationships. So, she’ll do just about anything to keep him, suggests Dr. Ish. If it takes doing drugs to make that happen, then she’ll do some drugs. This she’s already proven.
Like a Puppet On Strings
The outside world sees the star from Mama June: From Not to Hot as an attractive woman. But June sees herself the way she always did. She doesn’t think she’s good enough for Geno. She’s become dependent on the guy.
It seems it’s like this relationship is like a sickness for June. Dr. Ish explains:
“The reason Geno [Doak] works for her is because Geno treats her in life the way she feels about herself inside“. He continues by saying, “When she was heavier, she knew who she was… But now she went from not to hot. So now what does this mean?”
June is no longer in control of June, now she’s got someone pulling her strings, like a puppet. Once June starts doing drugs, it works for Geno as well. She’s easy to control when she’s hooked, suggests the doctor.
So, in a nutshell, this is why June has an unhealthy relationship. Pumpkin seemed to need this guidance before meeting her mom face to face. The video above offers a glimpse of Pumpkin’s meeting with Dr. Ish.
