Mama June has been working to get a handle on her addiction for the sake of her daughters on this season of From Not to Hot.

The reality TV star ultimately quit outpatient rehab after one session on this week’s season finale, following an emotional heart-to-heart with daughter Pumpkin. 

Although she soon found herself at rock bottom, Mama June managed to get back on the wagon again, thanks to some help from her manager Gina.

Gina gave an update toward the beginning of the episode, revealing that June and Geno were living in a truck after leaving rehab.

She added that they were broke and homeless after being thrown out of a hotel for not paying: ‘They have no home, they have nothing. I think this is rock bottom.’ 

Luckily, Gina was able to find an inpatient program in Florida that was willing to take June for free, but she decided not to tell Pumpkin and Alana immediately, so not to get their hopes up.

After two weeks, Mama June agreed to inpatient rehab, only after Gina was able to get a spot for her boyfriend Geno, but they wouldn’t be allowed to see each other during the program.

June appeared to be convinced that they wouldn’t have fallen off the wagon the most recent time if they hadn’t been offered. 

She said: ‘If we would not have got offered that one hit, like four to five days ago, we would still be clean. And that’s true.’   

Upon their arrival in Florida, one of the rehab employees picked them up, informing them that their first week would be a detox.

Mama June experienced some second thoughts when they arrived at Banyan Treatment Center, but they ultimately convinced her to go in. 

After their check-in and initial evaluations, June and Geno gave each other a kiss and hug for the last time, getting teary-eyed before being separated.

Meanwhile, Sugar Bear’s wife Jennifer got lunch with her friend Janice, with whom she discussed their custody battle over Alana.

Janice told her they need a bigger place if they want custody, revealing she has a friend with a four-bedroom house up for rent.        

Jennifer said in a confessional: ‘If the judge does give us custody of Alana, I’ll always be a better mom than June ever thought she was. And with Pumpkin, she doesn’t have the experience I do of raising kids.’

She said: ‘I quit for nine months, and I didn’t wanna deal with what was going on between me and him… using the cocaine just kind of glued that feeling up.’ 

Pumpkin still didn’t know about June being in rehab, until she got a text from her while driving Alana and daughter Ella around.

She was skeptical about her mom being in rehab, which is why she called June’s manager Gina to get the story.
