Mama June makes out with new boyfriend Justin Stroud on carousel
By Francesca Bacardi January 28, 2022 | 3:30pm
The “From Not to Hot” star was photographed Tuesday riding a carousel with her new boyfriend, Justin Stroud, and managed to squeeze in a few kisses between smiling and gazing into each other’s eyes.
June smiled as her beau lovingly placed his hand on her thigh. When the pair weren’t busy on the classic ride, Shannon, 42, and Stroud, 34, held hands and enjoyed ice cream while soaking up the Los Angeles sunshine.
The reality TV star was dressed in a black-and-white gingham shirt and black pants, while Stroud wore a royal blue shirt and red baseball hat.
The new couple appear to be inseparable, as they were photographed last Friday going for a hike in the woods outside of LA, where they also seen packing on the PDA.
The pair fed each other ice cream.
After getting some exercise, Shannon and the tattoo artist took a break and sat down on a bench, where she could be seen embracing her much younger beau. This is Shannon’s first relationship since her highly publicized breakup with longtime boyfriend Geno Doak. The relationship ended in a dramatic way when Doak, 46, was sentenced last August to 16 months in Macon Community Corrections in Alabama after being busted on drug charges with Shannon.
Shannon seems to have turned her life around since her apparent rock bottom, having reunited with all four of her daughters, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Efrid, Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon, Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell, and Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Shannon, after not seeing them for six years as she battled drug addiction.
To Azastan's excellent point, it took TWO reporters to bring us this story:

BAD INFLUENCE Mama June reveals ex-boyfriend Geno Doak CHEATED on her before 2019 crack arrest & drug addiction

MAMA June Shannon opened up about her addiction during an Instagram Live, revealing that ex Geno Doak cheated on her ahead of their 2019 arrest. The reality star and her then-beau were booked on drug charges. She made the confession during a Live video, opening up about her drug use. Mama June recalled spending a significant amount of time at casinos in Alabama during her toxic romance. She said in the Live: "Geno started cheating with people that was in the casinos and it was just hell. "Pure hell."
To make matters worse, Mama June noted that their were "drugs everywhere" in the casinos. She said: "So I was using quite a bit. "I was spending, like, $250,000 at these casinos, like, in four months." Further showing how bad things got, Mama June shared: "I went back home in July. ... My power was off, my water was off. "But do you think I cared about that? No." She went on: "I got my production company to turn back on the power, to turn back on the water and the lights. "I started selling s**t out of my house."
Mama June recalled trying to sell "everything," including her refrigerator, clothing, lights, paintings and more. She said: "I just needed the money because at that time, I was totally broken." To make matters worse, cameras were rolling and, according to Mama June, "Geno was using behind my back." Mama June and Geno's drug use ramped up. She reached a point, she said, where she "was spending, like, $250,000" on drugs in a matter of months. Mama June claimed during her live that Geno was using drugs intravenously, or via needle. She claimed that he left needles around her home, which daughter Pumpkin found. It was at that point that she had younger sister Alana – better known as Honey Boo Boo – removed from the household. The siblings continue to live together to this day, though they see Mama June often.
Mama June and Geno were arrested in March 2019. She had been filming Mama June: From Not to Hot at the time, and production – as well as her family members – had become aware of her addiction struggles. They staged an intervention, which was filmed, and tried to get Mama June back on the straight and narrow. She and Geno both entered rehab in the season four finale. As a result of their joint arrest, Geno was sentenced to jail time. Mama June got off without serving time and has since committed her life to helping others.
After calling it quits with Geno, Mama June has moved on. She's now in a relationship with a younger man, called Justin Stroud. The pair packed on the PDA amid a recent trip to California. Mama June was seen hand-feeding her beau and walking hand-in-hand with him. The Sun previously reported that Justin has a warrant out for his arrest. Police were said to be searching for him after he popped up with the reality star in California. He also has a history of drug abuse.
Of course, all Fogbowzers know all the details about the titular Mama June's drug habits from a young age from the Sober Nation FM 162 - From Crisis to Clean with June Shannon. Reposting it because it was at Fogbow 1.0, though so many of you probably downloaded it.

STILL SOBER Mama June addresses fans worried she’s ‘still using drugs’ as star ‘picks her face’ on TikTok Live after crack bust

MAMA June Shannon addressed fan's fears she's 'still using drugs' during a TikTok Live celebrating two years of sobriety after she was spotted picking her skin. The reality star was arrested on drug charges in 2019. Mama June took to TikTok to go Live on Thursday, chatting with fans about her struggles with addiction, her relationship with her children, her reality show, and more. Throughout the discussion, Mama June appeared to be picking at her face. She favored one spot in particular, repeatedly digging at it with her nails. Fans were quick to notice, questioning the reality star's sobriety in the comments. Mama June ignored the comments until she invited a fan into the video, who also struggled with addiction. The fan noted: "People are saying you're not sober because you're picking your face, just so you know."
Mama June laughed off the comment, revealing that she was picking at "a pimple" on her cheek. She said it had been giving her trouble, adding: "It won't pop." The fan noted: "I see it and it sees me." Mama June added that in addition to that pimple, she was struggling with rosacea which left her skin looking read and made the appearance of her "picking" seem worse. She maintained that she is clean and sober today and has not had a relapse or set back in two years.
Mama June was famously arrested with then-boyfriend Geno Doak in March 2019. The pair were hit with possession charges. The former Toddlers and Tiaras star addressed her contentious relationship with Geno during her live. She confessed that when they first connected, he demanded she be sober. Mama June claimed he had just gotten out of jail at the time and didn't want the temptation. Before long, they were both using. It started with cocaine and escalated quickly to crack. Among the many claims Mama June made about Geno Doak was that he was an IV drug user. She accused him of leaving needles around her home, which daughter Pumpkin saw. The discovery led to her removing younger sister Alana from the home. Mama June also revealed that she and Geno were spending a significant amount of time in Alabama casinos.
She noted that drugs were "everywhere" and she "was using quite a bit." She was filming Mama June: From Hot to Not at the time. "I was spending like $250,000 at those casinos, like, in four months," she said. Mama June confessed: "I'm not a downer person. So cocaine gave me the ability to be able to do amazing stuff." She got sober to film Marriage Bootcamp and stayed sober when she "started having my surgeries" in 2016. By the end of the year, however, she was back on drugs to cope with the pain of a brief split with Geno. She said on her Live: "I started using molly for almost four months – then Geno and I got back together and we started using cocaine." Their addiction began as "a gram here, two grams there." It then spiraled into the hundreds of thousands of dollars spent that she mentioned. Mama June acknowledged: "It kept progressing very fast." Still, she believed she had her addiction "under control."
It wasn't until production stepped in and her family became aware of her struggles that things changed. Production captured the height of Mama June's addiction on From Hot to Not, including fallout within her family and the drama surrounding her arrest. The show also featured a look at her intervention. Mama June celebrated two years sober on Thursday. She said during her live that she intends to share more on the upcoming season of her family's reality show. She also hopes to continue to connect with fans in Live videos.

MAMA'S MESSAGE Mama June extends support to Wendy Williams & says she’s ‘gone through similar experience filming during addiction’
Caitlyn Hitt & Jessica Finn

MAMA June Shannon celebrated two years sober with a series of Live videos, taking a moment to shout out Wendy Williams and wish her well amid her struggles. The reality star confessed that she understood the challenges of "filming during addiction." After opening up about her addiction, teasing the return of her reality show, and connecting with fans, Mama June turned her attention to Wendy, 57.
Wendy also publicly struggled with addiction and is now battling health issues. During her live, Mama June said the daytime TV show host was "nice" to her. She added: "I hope she gets the help she needs, and I think she is. "It's hard being filmed when you're in that and you're trying to make money." Mama June noted: "I've experienced that in my own addictions, with being filmed in my addiction and going through that "I get it."
Wendy is currently on hiatus from her show as she copes with her issues. She's been rumored to be returning to The Wendy Williams Show in the future, though The Sun's sources say that may never happen. An insider said that while she hasn't been fired, despite claims to the contrary, she's not expected to return to set. The source revealed: "Production is running out the clock with all these guest hosts. They're literally just waiting for the season to end, and after that, it's gone." The insider went on to say that The Wendy Williams Show has been syndicated for a full season to several stations around the nation. As such, production plans to deliver the show through that full period.
Wendy is spending her time in Florida. She has been absent from The Wendy Williams show since July 2021. The ailing talkshow host has been spending time with son Kevin Jr. He posted a photo of his mom enjoying breakfast in bed in Miami not long ago. As for what's going on with Wendy, several sources told The Sun that Wendy is battling various medical problems. An insider close to the show said: "The spark is gone. That Wendy, who for ten years had that spark in her eyes, that cheeky grin and that little wink is not the same now." The source went on to say that. somedays are better than others. "She's not always functioning like she used to be. She has days where she needs help eating, getting out of bed, and getting dressed.
"Sometimes she goes out in a robe and without shoes on – the old Wendy would never have allowed herself to be seen out like that." The insider revealed another heartbreaking detail: Wendy reportedly doesn't always recognized people whom she's known for years. "There are people who Wendy knows – who have worked closely with her – and there are days that she has no idea who they are," the source said. Wendy was hospitalized in September 2021, as previously reported by The Sun. She was taken in after a 911 dispatcher received a call for a person in need of psychiatric services. Shortly after, Wendy quietly hired herself a crisis public relations manager. The Wendy Williams Show released four statements between September 9 and October 12, blaming Wendy's absence from the show and other promotional duties on a breakthrough COVID case, "ongoing medical issues," and symptoms from Graves' disease. In November, a statement from Wendy was posted to the show's Instagram page. It said that she was still dealing with health issues, adding that as a "woman of a certain age" she knew it was important to listen to her doctors. The statement further noted that "right now, Wendy has to focus on Wendy."
Of course, we all remember the titular Mama June's appearances with Wendy over the years. An early interview, listen to how wild the audience goes seeing the titular Mama June and Alana. Also an early appearance of Wendy's "Shoe Cam":
