From Not to Hot star Mama June Shannon has surfaced in Florida this week after a new report claims the 40-year-old will not get a paycheck for the upcoming fourth season, which has been retitled Family Crisis.
In pics obtained by TMZ, Shannon and her boyfriend, Geno Doak, were at a Golden Corral buffet in Port St. Lucie, Florida. And, despite her legal and financial troubles, it appears that Shannon has managed to keep the weight off after she lost 300 pounds in 2016. Now, Shannon reportedly weighs 170 pounds.

Well decided to get back at it im not saying im.perfect as everyday is a strugglr n some days i just want to disappear n even though me n kids arent still seeing each other n its veen very hard on all of us but i hope one day that will cgange as i want them to know i miss n love them very much.
She was snapped wearing a pink top and black leggings with sneakers, and her hair was pulled back in a ponytail. Meanwhile, Doak was in a tank top and shorts as the couple waited in line for the buffet.
As fans know, Shannon has been on a downward spiral over the past year, which some have blamed on Doak. After her family convinced her to go to rehab in the season finale that aired last May, Doak arrived at the facility a few hours later and checked Shannon out.
Just a couple of days later, police arrested the duo for felony possession of crack cocaine and paraphernalia after they were involved in a disturbance at an Alabama gas station.
Since then, Shannon has sold her Georgia home and a diamond ring, and the couple has been using that money to live in hotels and spend their time in casinos. And, Shannon’s 14-year-old daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson is living with her sister.
WeTV recently dropped a promo for the fourth season of From Not to Hot: Family Crisis, and it features Thompson eating a bowl of cereal as her mom’s pic appears on a “Missing” ad on a milk carton. The trailer asks: “What’s it going to be like when Mama finally comes home?”
Sources say that Mama June Shannon will be the focus of the upcoming season, but she did not sit down for interviews and was not “an active participant.” Therefore, she will not be getting a paycheck from her family’s reality TV show.
Her daughters – Anna, 24, Jessica, 22, Lauryn (Pumpkin), 19, and Alana – are “actually happy” that she won’t be making any money for the new season because of Mama June’s addiction problems.
Shannon recently posted a message on Instagram telling her kids that she misses them very much, and admitting that she’s made some mistakes. However, her family isn’t buying it and believes the post was an attempt to “deceive the public” and raise some cash to support her addiction.
The new season of From Not to Hot: Family Crisis will premiere in March on WeTV.
