Mama June: From Hot To Not shows Geno Doak going to jail… MONTHS before HER arrest for possession





Mama June Shannon was famously arrested alongside boyfriend Geno Doak last month and charged with crack cocaine possession after 911 callers claimed they saw a nasty domestic fight.

Friday’s episode of Mama June: From Not to Hot showed how six months earlier June had to spring Geno from jail – following an arrest her family believes sparked the terrible spiral leading to her own arrest.

June, 39, was shown fighting to get Geno, 42, released from Spalding County Jail in Georgia in the days leading up to daughter Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson’s premiere on Dancing with the Stars: Juniors last October.

He was in there for failing to finish community service for an earlier DUI – seemingly giving no hints of what was to come.

‘At the time of Geno’s release from jail, the only thing our family was concerned about was Alan’s premiere of Dancing With The Stars,’ insisted June’s daughter, Lauryn ‘Pumpkin’ Shannon, in a current-day confessional.

‘Looking back now, we didn’t know that Geno’s arrest would result in a downward spiral for everybody.’

Pumpkin, 19, had also opened the episode, titled Love After Lockup, addressing her family’s recent ‘rough couple of weeks.’

‘Looking back, I don’t really know what we could have done differently,’ she insisted.

‘Geno getting arrested was a shock to all of us. And he really let us down.

‘We didn’t have the full story of what was going on and we couldn’t imagine what was coming next,’ she added with a sigh.

At the time, June did not seem concerned about Geno’s arrest – and was mostly upset at how it would look to others.

‘I’ve talked Geno up to be a good guy. Now he goes and goes to jail. What are people gonna think now?’ she asked.

‘He couldn’t complete community service like he was supposed to? I mean, c’mon now –that’s quite disappointing.’

Her sister, Doe Doe, however, insisted: ‘I’m not surprised Geno got arrested. I always told June there was something about him.’

Geno later claimed of Doe Doe: ‘Somebody needs to kick you in the balls.’

The family finally got to see him when he appeared in Spalding County Courthouse four days after his arrest, cuffed and wearing a prison jumpsuit.

‘To see Geno in shackles – it was kinda upsetting,’ 13-year-old Alana said.

‘I used to live up to Geno and now I don’t know what to think. I though Geno was a good person … should I look up to him still?’

The next day – five days after his arrest – he finally left a free man, with Alana joining Pumpkin and her husband Josh by wearing prison jumpsuits to greet him, with handcuffs decorating the car.

‘I feel like I’ve let them down,’ Geno admitted. ‘I want to show them that they can still look up to me.’

He had a heart-to-heart with Alana who told him she felt ‘neglected’ and feared he would split the family.

‘I love you, I love your mom… I love everybody and I’m not going anywhere,’ he told her.

In scenes that may now haunt him, he then linked little fingers with Alana and told her: ‘Pinky promise, I’m not gonna go jail again and I promise I’ll be here for you.’

‘You never break pinky promise,’ Alana said. ‘That’s one thing you don’t do.’

June, meanwhile, was more worried about finally admitting to her man that she was not actually pregnant – with him not taking the news well, saying it left him ‘a little bit mad, sad, confused.’

‘Makes me question my trust for her,’ he insisted. ‘I feel like I’ve been lied to, led on. But I still love her.’

‘I’m not gonna go anywhere. But it’s gonna make things different,’ he said.

Pumpkin took the news even worse – coming just after she signed a year’s lease for a new apartment she could not really afford, wrongly thinking she had to leave home for a new brother or sister’s arrival.

‘You just kicked us out for an invisible baby?’ Pumpkin asked, infuriated.

Alana was now even more upset that they had left Hollywood.

‘You basically took my dreams, put them in the toilet and flushed the toilet,’ she told her mom, adding later to camera: ‘You made me give up my dreams on a movie role … so you could not have a baby. I am so mad!’

Doe Doe once again stood alone, happy at the news as she said: ‘Thank God June ain’t pregnant by that jailbird.’

Alana had been nervous in the build-up to her big DWTS premiere because of all the ‘haters’ online.

Her family threw a party for the opening episode – with them all wearing ‘Team Alana’ shirts – and her gushing over the online feedback turning almost completely positive.

‘Maybe I might get a movie or something,’ Alana smiled. ‘I think I might get a couple of producer calls.’

Committed to the new apartment, Josh started job hunting, though laughing at how his résumé listed experience as ‘a lot of gas, grass and a**.’

His wife bragged about having ‘a masters degree in b.s.’ and wildly embellished the résumé – leaving Josh embarrassed on his first interview.

‘How was Harvard? It’s quite the institution,’ his interviewer asked, with Josh initially saying he did not like to brag about his time there.

He finally confessed after being challenged over just how fluent he was in Spanish, admitting: ‘Burrito, taco – that’s about as far as it goes. And

‘I have no idea where Harvard’s even at.’

Still, he got the job – getting ‘poo-poo-tank dirty’ cleaning toilets – after the interviewer admitted: ‘You’re one of two applicants, and the other one didn’t show up.’

June’s manager, Gina Rodriguez, invited the star to lunch to discuss a ‘big opportunity’ – shocking her by having ex-husband Sugar Bear’s new wife, Jennifer, there too.

‘This is some bulls**t. You’re fixing to get fired,’ June snapped, with her manager warning: ‘All of the same people who were interested in you are interested in her.’

She then told the women how Star magazine wanted them to both pose – allowing viewers to vote on which of them would be the cover star.

‘Star magazine is not gonna want Jennifer as their cover. They’re gonna want a star as their cover,’ June insisted, while her rival warned: ‘Your fans are gonna be my fans.’

‘There ain’t no competition because June ain’t no competition to me,’ Jennifer bragged in a confessional.

Gina, frustrated at how June was putting back much of the weight she lost, insisted: ‘This competition might be just what June needs – a little kick in the a**.’

Jennifer the star: 'You're fixing to get fired,' June snapped, with her manager warning: 'All of the same people who were interested in you are interested in her'
