'Mama June': It's not Geno but June who should be blamed for substance abuse as fans say she'll never be clean
'Doe Doe needs to get off the 'Its Geno's fault' train. Yes... they are together but its June making the choice to love meth'
Despite completing 30 days in a rehabilitation center in Florida, June Edith "Mama June" Shannon continues to be blamed for her actions and for not taking responsibility for her kids — Lauryn Michelle "Pumpkin" Efird and Alana Frances "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson. For the longest time. June's boyfriend has been blamed for June doing drugs and not being able to stay focussed on her family. But fans are certain that's not the case.
June is an adult and can make choices, take concrete decisions about her life but doesn't simply because she doesn't want to, feel fans. "Doe Doe needs to get off the 'Its Geno's fault' train. Yes...they are together but it's June making the choice to love meth. Just so happens she loves Meth And Geno. IF he was out of the picture?...she would be doing Meth just as much. #MamaJune," a fan commented.
"Damn man I feel so bad for Alana, neither one of her parents are worth sh*t & June works my nerves with not wanting to accept accountability and she's selfish as hell, sad to say I think Geno gets it more than she does. #MamaJuneFamilyCrisis #mamajune," another shared. "Ppl saying #MamaJune is doing all this bc of Geno...No! Its bc she loves doing Meth, loves Geno doing it w/her. (vice versa) They're Drug partners. LOOK who's trying 2make it not look as bad??? June! Geno is spewing out truth while june is giving him the Look, changing subject," a user tweeted.
What fans are saying may not be far from the truth especially if we take a look at June's track record. Every time she has had an opportunity to stand by her family and be their rock, she has bailed. Recently, Pumpkin had to leave the house and put up in a hotel because "bad guys" were chasing June for drug money. Together, in six months, June and Geno had done cocaine worth $150,000 that left them homeless. The couple even sold off her family home (which was to go to her kids) to pay off their debts.
Even though June regretted her actions deeply, she needed to prove it to her kids that she meant every word when she said that her family was important to her and she would do anything to be with them. In the finale episode of 'Mama June: Family Crisis' Season 4, June and Geno enrolled themselves as in-patients at a treatment center.
