Mama June Packs on 60 Lbs in New Trailer for Season Five after Struggling with Crack Addiction
In the recently released trailer for season 5 of "Mama June: Road to Redemption," 41-year-old Mama June gave some insight into her weight loss journey after overcoming her substance addiction.
June "Mama June" Shannon is on the road to redemption. This sort of journey, however, is never truly easy and void of its own various challenges along the way.
Mama June and her boyfriend, Geno Doak, are walking this path together after they have both battled with cocaine addiction for so long. They will be chronicling their journey to better health in the upcoming season of "Mama June: Road to Redemption."
In the recently released trailer for the much-anticipated season, the mother of four and her boyfriend opened up about the challenges of their lives as sober people and the severe effects their past addiction life had on them.
Addressing their weight gain, Mama June admitted that she is back, bigger and sweeter. The reality star also revealed that she and Doak have been sober for seven months. Mama June added:
"Look we have put on a little couple extra pounds. I've put on about 60. He's put on about 100. We put on a whole other person."
While lightheartedly sharing the news, Mama June said she would blame the unexpected physical changes on healthy quarantine weight.
She then joked that she finds Doak's new look to be very sexy. The boyfriend and girlfriend reportedly moved to Florida after Mama June left rehab to focus on sobriety.
Alana was seen sobbing as she narrated how thinking about her mother's addiction had her crying herself to sleep often.
Earlier this month, before Mama June and Doak's weight and sobriety revelation, fans saw the 41-year-old's daughter, Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, show off her impressive weight loss.
While Mama June struggles and works hard to get her life in order, her youngest daughter, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, 15, has been living with Pumpkin.
In the trailer for the coming season of the show, viewers got to hear the family's youngest share her side of the story. Alana was seen sobbing as she narrated how thinking about her mother's addiction had her crying herself to sleep often.
The distraught 15-year-old described several sleepless and troubled nights as she bitterly shed tears. Mama June cried in response, saying that she had no idea how broken her struggles had made her family.
"Mama June: Road to Redemption" is set to premiere on Friday, March 19, on WeTV. Fans cannot wait to see the Shannon family lay it all out on the table and possibly work things out, especially with the matriarch's weight loss journey.
