Mama June: Road to Redemption returned for a new dramatic episode on Friday night. This week, Mama June and Alana, aka Honey Booboo, were called to participate in Fox's The Masked Singer. While viewers were excited to see how their journey on the reality TV competition series goes, they were taken aback by what happened after.
Though June may have reunited with her kids after breaking up with Geno, she prioritized her supposed boyfriend. On Friday's episode of Mama June: Road to Redemption, June confessed to her therapist that there was another man in her life. He was just 24 years old and in rehab.
Though she told her therapist that she was helping him out in recovery, the text messages she sent him said otherwise. Since Mama June is visually impaired, she uses the talk-to-text mode on her phone. While sending a text, Mama June told Jordan that she loved him.
While that wasn't enough, Mama June and Alana got an opportunity to appear on The Masked Singer. Alana was excited to participate in the series and spend some alone time with her mother. But June had other plans.
Since The Masked Singer was filmed in California, June and Alana had to fly to LA. Though Pumpkin wasn't thrilled about the idea, she decided to give June a chance at redeeming herself. Josh was against Alana going with June alone since he and Pumpkin looked after her. But to make sure she knows of June's whereabouts, Pumpkin attached a tracker on her phone.
Pumpkin regretted her decision to send Alana with June alone. Soon after they reached LAX, Alana was left alone since June had spent most of her time talk texting on her phone with her supposed boyfriend. To make things even more disappointing for Alana, the mother and daughter duo got eliminated from the reality TV series after the first round.
When the Mama June: Road to Redemption star and her daughter returned to their hometown, June made Alana furious again. June told Alana to take the cab back to Pumpkin's home by herself. When Alana asked June where she was headed, she revealed she would meet a friend.
June told Alana that she couldn't take care of motherly duties and left in the car with Jordan. The young Mama June: Road to Redemption star had to take a cab back to Pumpkin's house alone. Even the production team was shocked by Mama June's behavior.
Fans who watched June ditch her daughter for Jordan slammed the Mama June: Road to Redemption star. They claimed it was selfish and shameful.
