MAMA June, the mother of Honey Boo Boo, has spent hundreds of dollars on new shoes while her children pinch pennies.
A YouTube trailer for the new season of Mama June: Family Crisis, showed Lauryn ‘Pumpkin’ Efird, 23, talking to her husband Josh, 26.

The couple was discussing the shoes Mama June, 43, bought Honey Boo Boo, aka Alana Thompson, 17.
Josh asked his wife, “How do you spend $300 on some shoes for somebody that you were willing just to give up because you didn’t feel like paying child support?”
He continued, “Is that like buying love? What is that?”
Pumpkin replied, “You know what it is. It’s what mama always does. She thinks that shoes or whatever else will ‘fix’ everything,” and she added air quotes around “fix.”
The TLC star went on to say, “She’s always going to try to buy Alana the next best thing. She’s always gonna try and one up us, but in all reality babe – we have the one up. Okay?
“She has to pay us child support now.”
In a heated confessional, Pumpkin said that she doesn’t believe her relationship with her mother would ever be the same as it was before Mama June gave up her rights to Alana.
Pumpkin also said that she could never imagine signing away her own child.
In another trailer for the upcoming sixth season of Mama June: Family Crisis, Mama June and Alana confronted each other over their broken relationship.
In the new trailer, Alana reluctantly attends a weekend therapy session with her estranged mother.
The therapist warned: “New beginnings. Or new endings? Everyone may not want to move forward.”
While trying to make amends, June burst into tears as she said: “I do need you all!”
Also in tears, Alana admitted: “She’s disappointed me so much.”
June’s absence as a maternal figure can be sensed elsewhere in the footage.
Honey Boo Boo also had a screaming match with Pumpkim where she kept pushing Alana to start the college process, but the teen refused to participate.
She screamed: “You’re not even my mama, for real!”
Last year, according to Georgia court documents first obtained by The U.S. Sun, a judge awarded sole custody of Alana to her sister Pumpkin away from their matriarch.
Pumpkin and Josh have their hands full, especially with their son Bentley, 10 months, daughter Ella, four, their newborn twins Sylus and Stella, plus Alana.
MAMA JUNE’S RELATIONSHIP ISSUES
In an upcoming episode of Mama June’s show, she was branded a “liar” by her new husband Justin Stroud, 42, just months after their fairytale wedding.
The From Not to Hot star’s fight with her husband was showcased mid-way through the show’s trailer with Justin accusing June of lying to his mother.
The 42-year-old mechanic spat: “You lied to my mom,” before calling the situation “ridiculous” and walking away from the argument.
As he exited, Justin slid in one more jab as he stated: “I didn’t realize I married a f**king liar June.”
In the post’s comment section, one person wrote: “I have a love/hate relationship with this show!!!”
Another fan commented: “One thing about June she gonna keep this show going.”
While a third commenter stated: “Can’t wait, it makes my heart sad though she puts men 1st instead of her family.”
