Mama June is confronted with the possibility of two years in prison on Mama June: Road To Recovery

Mama June Shannon was forced to be honest with herself and her family about the odds that she could end up in prison for up to two years on Friday’s episode of Mama June: Road To Recovery.

The 41-year-old reality star couldn’t keep lying to herself after she was confronted by her daughter Lauryn ‘Pumpkin’ Shannon and her husband Josh.

Pumpkin, 21, also got her own surprise when she learned on camera that she was pregnant with her second child.  

Being honest: Mama June Shannon, 41, was forced to stop her lies and admit to her family that she could go to prison for as long as two years on Friday’s episode of Mama June: Road To Recovery

The episode picks up with Alana staying on her own with June and her boyfriend Geno at their temporary Florida house.

She had been visiting with Pumpkin for the first time since her older sister became her guardian among June and Geno’s struggles with drug addiction and homelessness. 

But Josh drives through the day from Georgia to Florida to pick up Alana, as he doesn’t like the idea of her staying there.

He was incensed after learning that June took her youngest daughter apartment hunting to entice her to stay, even though Pumpkin and Josh didn’t think she was anywhere near ready for that step.

Once he arrives, Josh confronts a shocked June at the front door before marching into the house without her permission.

Alana is confused by his arrival, as she thought ‘nothing bad has happened,’ and June asks why he couldn’t have given them a call first.

But Josh says the apartment hunting was the last straw.

‘We don’t live in Florida to pick up the pieces,’ he tells June with a blank face.

Geno seems to be the only one who understands why Josh is angry about looking for new places to live, and he urges June to let Alana go.

 ‘You think you can go in my house any time you want to?’ June cries out as Alana covers her face as if to cry, though she’s dry eyed when she moves her hands.

‘No, just this time,’ Josh replies.

While her husband is in Florida retrieving her little sister, Pumpkin visits June’s sister Doe Doe, who proceeds to tell her that June confessed to her that she could be facing up to two years in prison, while Geno is ‘definitely doing time’ and could spend as many as 10 years behind bars. 

June never conveyed anything that serious to Pumpkin, even when she pressed her about it, so she feels lied to.

‘I know what Pumpkin’s going through because I had to step in and raise June when she was young,’ Doe Doe says.

She adds that ‘June’s doing just what mama used to do’ by buying Alana’s love.

Later that night, Alana is furious at Josh for taking her home during their tense car and she says Josh ‘ruined’ her life, though he tells her he’s the ‘boss’ when it comes to matters of her safety and well-being.

Once she calms down a bit after playing on her phone in her bedroom, Pumpkin comes in for a chat.

Misplaced anxiety: Alana admits that she thinks it¿s time for her to move back in with June and Geno because Pumpkin and Josh have been arguing lately, but she says it¿s not because of her

‘Mama tends to leave out the bad parts, but Mama’s looking at jail time,’ she tells Alana, which surprises her sister. 

Pumpkin adds that she thinks of Alana like more than a sister, and she says her daughter Ella thinks of her like a sister, so she’ll never be a burden on them.

Later on, June and Geno move into their new house in Florida after signing the papers.

It doesn’t have a pool but it’s near the beach, which June wanted to entice her youngest to move back in with her.

But during a virtual therapy session, her therapist calls her out for going apartment hunting with Alana and not being truthful about the possibility of prison time, but she doesn’t want to do that out of fear that her daughters will visit less often.

Back in Georgia, Doe Doe visits Pumpkin and Ella as they fill up party favors for her daughters friends ahead of Ella’s birthday party.

Doe Doe convinces Pumpkin that she’s doing a good job of taking care of her sister and daughter, but in a moment of stress she pours a whole handful of Pixy Stix into her mouth, and then there’s a flash back to her bingeing and eating junk food in recent episodes.

On her way back home, Doe Doe calls up June in the car and blasts her for not being honest about her court proceedings, even though her sister doesn’t want to hear it.

Nevertheless, she leaves a message for Pumpkin and says she’s available to talk whenever she’s ready.

Geno joins in with the others and tells June she needs to be honest with herself before she can be honest with the others.

‘That’s not gonna happen,’ she says about the possibility of going to prison.

‘You hope it’s not gonna happen,’ Geno corrects her.

She seems to be suffering under delusions and thinks she might go to a fancy ‘celebrity’ jail if she’s convicted, but Geno sets her straight and tells her there won’t be anything nice about it, and she might even get ‘beaten up or stabbed’ if she acts the way she does on the outside.

Later, she has her video chat with Pumpkin and Alana and admits that she might go to prison, but she also acts as if it’s not serious and reveals she might try to represent herself, which Pumpkin knows would be an awful self-sabotaging idea.

Not feeling great: Pumpkin has to rush away to the bathroom in the middle of the call with a bout of nausea, which confuses Alana and June. 'I don¿t think I¿m pregnant, but if I am, this would literally be the worst time,' she says

Pumpkin has to rush away to the bathroom in the middle of the call with a bout of nausea, which confuses Alana and June.

‘I don’t think I’m pregnant, but if I am, this would literally be the worst time,’ she says in a confessional recording. 

Right after the call she leaves the house to go to a nearby pharmacy, where she buys a pregnancy test and uses it in the store’s bathroom.

She sounds frustrated with the camera people and meekly asks them to give her some space as she leaves while looking distressed.

Back at home, Alana is running around the yard while pulling Ella in her toy convertible, but she has to stop when she gets out of breath.

Her aunt Jessica, who lives with them, suggests it might have something to do with the sugary snacks she has lying out and says she needs to worry more about the possibility of getting diabetes, which her father already has.

Jessica also mentions that Pumpkin has been bingeing on unhealthy foods recently.

But Alana pushes it aside and jokes that she’ll ‘pass out’ if she eats too many vegetables. 

Bad mood: Pumpkin arrives home to find Josh playing with Ella in the living room, but she's annoyed that he was doing that instead of looking for a new job after quitting his in recent weeks

He tries to convince her that they’re fine and there’s no rush, but she gives him a stern look and says, ‘OK, but you never know if something unexpected pops up.’

Then she hands him her positive pregnancy test from the drug store, revealing that they’ll soon have another child.

‘I am pregnant,’ she says, but Josh’s only response is, ‘What the f***.’
