After graduating from Florida State University with a creative writing degree, she moved straight to New York City to pursue a career in the arts. She loves discovering and sharing viral videos, watching movies with her Muppet-like poodle mix named Cali, and doing the robot whenever possible.

Two months after Mama June was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia, her family tried to stage an intervention on TV.

The emotional new promo for “Mama June: From Not to Hot,” shows the reality TV star’s family confronting her and urging her to seek help for her alleged drug abuse.

The family wants June to know they’re coming to her out of love and concern, but they feel June has become “numb” and “delusional.”

Honey Boo Boo, aka Alana Thompson, says she has not been living with her 39-year-old mother. In the clip, the 13-year-old tearfully begs June to understand that she’d rather live with her and return to the way things were, but right now she’s just too fearful of being inside the house with her.

“Do you not understand that I’m staying with my sister and that’s not by choice?!” the teen cries. “It’s not by choice!”

Mama June tries to leave the house against her family’s wishes, and threatens to call the police if they don’t let her.

Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, June’s 19-year-old daughter, then tries to break down what will happen to her and the family if she doesn’t get sober… but things seem to only grow more intense.

Watch the dramatic confrontation in the clip below.
