TMZ: June Shannon Won't Be Paid for 'From Not to Hot: Crisis' and Family Is Happy about It
June 'Mama June' Shannon will reportedly not be making any money when the next season of "From Not to Hot" comes around, says TMZ. The reality star is still estranged from her family.
According to the outlet, June is not an active participant on the show, which will mostly focus on Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson and sister Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon."
Fallout of June's arrest
June will still be the primary figure in the show, but most of the footage of her consists of movement to and from court appearances and tense interactions with her family.
June has been in deep trouble with the law since last year when she and Geno Doak were arrested for drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance.
Since then, the 40-year-old has distanced herself from her four daughters. Her youngest, Alana, lives with sister Lauryn who is married and has one daughter.
No money for her
TMZ alleges that June refused to do interviews with the WE TV network — making her ineligible for payment. Due to her drug and gambling abuse, her family is happy with that.
June has been struggling financially for months now. At one point, she sold her home way below the actual value. Her family believes she did it to pay for her drug and gambling habits.
June and Doak have been making their way around hotels in Alabama, where they also make a lot of casino visits. June's family believes she should stop and split from Doak.

New trailer released
Including June's sister, Joanna, the family has tried to convince June to better herself both for her sake and to improve their relationship. The trailer for the new season of the show implies that the family may reunite.
Although June is not active in it, the trailer was posted to her Instagram account. In it, Alana sits down to eat cereal. Then, a voice-over suggests that Mama June is finally coming home.
The promo ad seems to be contradicting all other reports, including a post from June last week where she wrote that "me [and my] kids arent [sic] still seeing each other."
June's family reach out
Last month, a TMZ report also implied that June is still strapped for cash. She reportedly pawned a diamond ring at a place called Cash America for $1,500.
The last time June's family attempted to help her was in November. An insider told TMZ that they would make rounds where they though June might be staying to see where she was.
They even allegedly called the cops once to determine her whereabouts. The officers found her in a hotel with Doak. We hope the new season of "From Not to Hot," which airs in March, sees a turnaround.
