It’s like Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson’s aunt said during the latest episode of “Mama June: From Not to Hot,” she only 13 years old; no child should have to go through what she’s going through at this age.
During an intervention held by Mama June’s family in an attempt to get her help, June stormed out of the home after her youngest daughter admitted to her that she’s scared to move out of Pumpkin’s home and back in with her.
The 13-year-old said through tears:
“Mama, I would love to come home and stay with you. Tell you about my day, but I can’t do that because I’m scared. I’m not even going to lie to you, I’m scared to stay at your house.”
And yet, despite Alana pouring her heart out to her mom in an attempt to convince her to seek help, June stormed out, while threatening to call if anyone touches her and adding that she’s not going to have an intervention while cameras are around.
Alana admitted again that “she scares me” as June began to get angry:
“It’s just that I thought maybe after today that maybe things would change. I just thought she would never do this because of what Sugar Bear did. Because she’s seen the pain that I go through with Sugar Bear like every day. She always told us with Geno, with Sugar Bear, with anyone that she would never let anyone come between her kids. I thought maybe with Geno it would be better. It would be different.”
The teenager continued:
“I don’t really have a dad. And I thought, well maybe mama won’t be there for me. And basically, it’s like my sister is my mom now.”
Alana said her sister should be one the to have to take care of her, but she’s very grateful for Pumpkin and her husband, Josh, for stepping up and being there for her.
As Dearly previously reported, Pumpkin took Alana into her own home after Mama June’s behavior and health started to drastically change.
Alana added that she just wants a normal life, living in a house with her mom and sleeping in her own bed, but she’s also most afraid of losing her mom completely.
Eventually, June agreed to try out a rehab facility located three hours from their home. However, after only 12 hours, June checked herself out and left with her boyfriend, Geno. Two days later, June and Geno were arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Now Pumpkin is taking legal action to gain temporary custody of Alana. However, Alana’s father, Sugar Bear, doesn’t like the idea of her living with her sister rather than him.
The family continues to be at a loss as to how to help June get back to her old self.
