As Dr. Ish asked the public figure her thoughts on the state of their relationship, she lamented that she has learned not to expect much from her mother.

‘I just feel like it’s just really messed up because me and Mama used to be so close. We used to do everything together, and now it’s like she disappeared on me,’ she described.

While the former pageant queen’s conversation went without tears, her older sister Jessica, 25, had a harder time.

She cried as she reflected back on her strained relationship with June, who has historically given more attention to a revolving door of suitors than her four daughters.

When Dr. Ish asked Jess (also known as Chubbs) how her mother’s behavior has affected her life, she became emotional.

‘At this point, it’s like whatever. For the first half of my life, I lived with Doe Doe. I mean, I didn’t know what Mama was up to. I just learned to grow up on my own, and Mama wasn’t around then and she’s barely around now,’ she admitted.

Their talk ended with the doctor reassuring the young woman that she is worthy of love as she credited Pumpkin and her husband Josh for opening their home to her.

I mean, they do a lot. A lot. I’m grown — they could have told me, “You know, Jessica, you’re old enough, like, you need to do your own thing.” And they could have just, you know, basically not been around like Mama has,’ she noted.

When it came to the couple’s session with their therapist, Josh expressed frustration over Pumpkin continuing to have a relationship with her mother.

‘Um, it’s been tough, man. It’s been stressful,’ he replied when Dr. Ish asked how he was doing.

Reaching his breaking point, he brought up the last episode, in which it was revealed that June had given some members of the family Covid after showing up uninvited to Alana’s birthday party.

‘All of the f***** up, unfortunate events that June has caused, yet you still allow her in your life. That’s what hurts me the most. That is why I’m angry,’ he continued. I didn’t ask for this. There’s only so much hanging around that I can do.’

He shed a tear during the emotional moment with his wife as she listened to his feelings intently. ‘There’s no room for your mother in my life anymore,’ he made clear.

Lauryn replied from her point of view, noting that, ‘I’m trying to do my best to do what I need to do for my family and be there for [my mom]. But it’s just become so stressful for me to do that and do this. And I’m happy… but I’m not happy, if that makes sense.’

Dr. Ish helped the couple, who married in 2018 and share two children, come to an understanding that they’re in it together.

Following a brief resolution it was revealed that June would be moving into a trailer with her latest love interest, Justin Stroud – who is now her husband.

She kept the move a secret, including the location – which was up the street from Pumpkin’s house.

In a shocking scene Justin said he didn’t know if he was ‘in love’ with June as they unpacked and set up furniture.

It came after a cameraman asked the star if she was in love, to which she emphatically replied: ‘Yes.’

Swooning as Justin entered the space, Stroud said, ‘I don’t know. It’s a little too… I mean. It’s what I’ve been trying to tell you.’

He added, ‘If I did, I wouldn’t tell you right now. I love you, I’ve got love for you, but I wouldn’t tell you like that. It’s been a month.’

Mama June didn’t seem to mind his response as she kissed him goodbye.

Later, speaking on the unexpected move, she said: ‘I want to show [my family] that I’m established. I want them to know I’m here and that I’m going to be here.’

The episode ended on somewhat of a cliffhanger as Lauryn showed up unannounced to her mom’s new residence.

Justin even stepped outside for a moment to meet the girls, but Lauryn didn’t give him a warm welcome, as the first thing she pointed out was his missing teeth.

The episode ended in an unresolved standoff between June and her displeased daughters.
