AceShowbiz - Mama June a.k.a. June Shannon really regrets how she spent her money so now she is back to being "penny pinching." The "Mama June: From Not to Hot" star admitted in an interview that she blew more than $1 million on drugs.
"I don't remember like a lot of that time frame," the 43-year-old told The Daily Mail when discussing her addiction. "Just bits and pieces and stuff. But the biggest, stupidest thing I've done is spend that much money on drugs."
June remembered telling herself, " 'Girl, what the hell are you doing spending all that damn money?' " She then shared, "I say that a lot to my husband [Justin 'Smallz' Stroud] ... I would be like, 'Man, why in the hell did I blow all that money?' I am always thinking about that."
"I think about a lot of things I could do with that money," June, who said she spent up to $3,000 a day on drugs during her addiction, further lamented. "My husband tells me all the time that I can't dwell on it."
Now that she felt bad about it, June declared that she's "gone back to being like penny pinching, adding that her husband Justin "tells me I'm a money hoarder."
June claimed her experience made doctors to get skeptical about treating her. "When they look at me and I feel like I'm getting judged because of my prior issues," she disclosed. "I hate that the doctors will look at someone who has been through something in their life, like an addiction, and they think that someone can't change."
June is currently suffering from an unknown illness and she just wants "the answers and I'm not getting them." However, she keeps "trying to get into to see the best doctors that I know back in Georgia, but it is taking some time."
