The finale of Not To Hot is intense, as the family faces off with Mama June in an intervention that they hope will force her to seek help for her drug addiction and mental health.
Honey Boo Boo, whose real name is Alana Thompson, is seen in a preview clip for the WETV show pleading with Mama June to go to treatment.
“Do you not understand that I’m staying with my sister and that’s not by choice? I swear to god, Mama, it’s not by choice,” expresses the extremely emotional 13-year-old.
Sadly, her cries appear to fall on deaf ears, as Mama June pushes back against the young girl’s words. She stays stoic and unemotional, as her daughter continues to break down over her mother’s recent actions. The impact of Mama June’s bad choices will stay with Honey Boo forever.

Despite her mom’s stand-offish behavior, Honey Boo Boo continues to shout truths at her, at one point screaming through tears.
“It’s not by choice! I would love to come home and stay with you and tell you about my day, but I can’t do that because I’m scared. I’m not even gonna lie to you, I’m scared to stay at your house,” revealed the distraught teenager.
Mama June’s lack of empathy for her young daughter does not go unnoticed. Her sister, Joanne Shannon, points out the behavior questioning if the mother of four is numb or delusional.
It is going to be quite the finale for Not To Hot. Another promo shows Mama June threatening to call the police if her family didn’t allow her to leave. She is also heard talking about how much she hates herself, as she walks away from her loved ones.

Honey Boo Boo’s pleas for Mama June to get help are heartbreaking, including one moment where the teenager asks her mother if she wants to die. The situation involving her kid’s desire for her to seek help has been heightened since Mama June was arrested on drug possession charges in March.
Her drug addiction is not the only problem, Mama June’s relationship with boyfriend, Geno Doak is adding strain to the family dynamic. He was arrested at the same time as her and charged with domestic abuse, as well as drug possessions.
Those wanting to see if Honey Boo Boo’s, words get to her mom or not can tune in tonight at 9 PM on WETV for the season finale of Not To Hot.
