Mama June: From Not to Hot is an American reality television series that airs on We TV. The reality series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, from which the show is a spin-off, made its debut on February 24, 2017. The program follows June “Mother June” Shannon as she goes from 460 to 160 pounds (209 to 73 kg).
At a gas station in Alabama on March 13, 2019, Mama June and her boyfriend Eugene “Geno” Doak were both detained and charged with felony possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia, with Geno also being accused of domestic violence.
Following this, the series changed its name to Mama June: From Not To Hot – Family Crisis, which debuted on March 27, 2020. The subtitle “From Not To Hot” was completely dropped from the fifth season, which was renamed Mama June: Road to Redemption and debuted on March 19, 2021.
What Is Mama June’s Net Worth?
The website Celebrity Net Worth estimates Mama June to have a modest net worth of about $50,000. Given her prominence in the reality TV genre and the huge following she has gathered over the previous decade, that may come as a surprise to some.
It’s particularly unexpected because one of the show’s primary characters, Mama June, is on a mission to improve her physical and emotional health in the documentary Mama June: Road to Redemption.
In 2020, however, Mama June struggled with substance misuse and reported spending a fortune on drugs. It’s probable that she spent a large chunk of her wealth feeding her addiction to Geno Doak.
But, now that Mama June has been sober for over two years, her wealth may rise.
Mama June’s Early Life and Childhood Challenges
June Thompson, better known as June Edith “Mama June” Shannon, was born in McIntyre, Georgia, on August 10, 1979. When she was two years old, Sandra Hundley and Marvin Shannon divorced.
Joanne Shannon, Joanie Shannon (now McDonald), and James Edward Shannon are her three siblings, while Michelle Shannon and Nicole Shannon are her two half-siblings. She had cataracts since she was a young child. June became legally blind as a result of these untreated cataracts.
The Shannon Family’s Reality Tv Journey
TLC’s “Toddlers & Tiaras” exposed June and her family to its American viewers for the first time in 2012. The show followed June and her youngest daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Shannon as they attended and participated in several beauty pageants for fun.
Alana and her family became instant hits with viewers thanks to Alana’s charisma and wit, leading to the creation of a spinoff series about them on TLC. It premiered on August 8, 2012, and ran for four seasons until being canceled. Till 2014, the show aired for a total of four seasons.
During the middle of filming the fifth season, production was interrupted. Eventually, in April 2017, the remaining episodes from season 5 were broadcast.
2017 saw the premiere of Mama June: From Not to Hot, June’s reality show on We TV. Once she had substantial weight loss surgery, the show documented her progress and other family events, such as Pumpkin’s (Lauryn) wedding to her fiancé. Bariatric surgery and sleeve gastrectomy helped June drop from 460 to 160 pounds or a loss of nearly 300.
According to reports, she has spent over $75,000 on plastic surgery to improve her appearance. In later seasons, June’s health and legal problems worsen, and her relationship with her lover Geno Doak becomes strained. June was arrested in March 2019 in Alabama for felony drug possession alongside Geno Doak. The show’s name was changed to “Mama June: Family Crisis” after June’s arrest.
Does Mama June Have a Job Outside of Reality Tv?
Mama June relies on earnings from the show and her Cameo account because she does not have another source of regular income. Her rates start at $500 for a promotional video and $90 for a personal one.
Meanwhile, Mama June just announced on Instagram that she has a new business and talent manager and teased her followers with the promise of upcoming projects.
“There are a lot of exciting new endeavors on the horizon. Excitement is building up inside me. I can’t wait to get started on this!” The Instagram post was made in June. “In this next stage of my life, I hope you’ll join me. There’s a lot more to look forward to.”
Tune in to WeTV on Fridays at 9 p.m. ET to see Mama June: Road to Redemption.
Despite being a prominent reality TV personality with a massive following, Mama June’s net worth is estimated to be modest, at around $50,000.
Her struggle with substance abuse and reported extravagant spending on drugs may have contributed to her financial situation. However, with her sobriety and a new business manager, her wealth may increase in the future.
