Mama June reveals daughter Honey Boo Boo's shocking future career path AND if teen will QUIT reality TV

May 20, 2022

MAMA June Shannon revealed her daughter Alana 'Honey Boo Boo' Thompson's shocking future career path and revealed if the teen will quit reality TV. 

In an exclusive interview with The Sun, June, whose show Mama June: Road to Redemption airs Friday on WeTV, revealed that Alana's post-high school graduation plans won't necessarily involve reality TV. 

"She has been accepted into some colleges and she graduates high school next year," June said of her youngest daughter who fans were first introduced to more than a decade ago on Toddlers & Tiaras. 

The 42-year-old mother-of-four explained they have been on TV for over 11-years now. 

"Granted, we've made a career out of it when it fell in our lap, but I don't see Alana doing reality TV at the age of 40," June said.  

With Alana setting her sights on potential colleges, her mother added: "She wants to go into a nursing program."

Alana, who turns 17 in August, and her three sisters have had a strained relationship with June, following their mother's 2019 arrest.


The 42-year-old's relationship with her four daughters has been strained since her 2019 arrest on possession charges.  

June hasn't given up on mending their bond, explaining in a recent interview with US Weekly where she stands with her daughters.

"It [is] always is a work in progress," the reality star said while promoting the latest season of the WeTV show.  

She noted that making things right with her children has motivated her to stay sober, which she has maintained for 29 months.  

June also voiced her frustrations over the constant discussions with her family about her sobriety.  

"It’s beating, like, a dead horse. For people to be able to move on, you’ve got to stop. … If you keep on living in the past, all you’re gonna do is keep looking back and you’re not gonna see what’s in the front windshield."  

Nonetheless, June acknowledged that her past drug use has been the reason for her rocky relationship with Alana "Honey Boo Boo" and Lauryn "Pumpkin."  

"I still understand where they’re at. … I was pissed off as hell [to start]," the TV star confessed. "But now that I’ve been in recovery, you know, I can [see] why they did the things that they did.  

"We see each other. We talk. They know when they need me, I’m here."  


June's family struggles were ignited when she was arrested on March 13, 2019, on drug possession charges, including possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia charges.  

Her then-boyfriend Geno Doak was also arrested and was charged with third-degree domestic violence, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.  

The former couple each allegedly had crack cocaine and a crack pipe on them.  

June and Geno – who split in August – were arrested at an Alabama gas station after someone called the police to report a domestic incident between the two.  

In June, it was reported that the reality star had dodged prison time in light of the arrest.  

Instead of going behind bars, June agreed to do 100 hours of community service and have court supervision.  

She has since moved on with a new love interest, Justin Shroud, 34, who also has a criminal history of his own.
