‘Mama June: Family Crisis’: Mama June’s Husband Justin Explodes and Refuses to Go to Counseling (Exclusive)

Mama June Shannon and Justin Stroud’s marriage appears to be on the brink of collapsing.

In an exclusive clip from this week’s episode of Mama June: Family Crisis, June and Justin exchange a series of expletive-laced accusations that ends with him exploding, “F*** you and counseling,” when she rhetorically asks how many times she’s suggested counseling.

The point of contention — from Justin’s point of view, anyway — appears to be June’s inability to make sacrifices or offer any kind of help, which he says makes him feel like he’s more her assistant than her husband.

“You do nothing,” he yells as the heated couple sit in the living room. “And you can’t be against the one person that does the majority of s**t.”

June, seemingly undeterred, tells Justin that if he’s “so unhappy” he can just walk out the door.

“I’m not gonna constantly sit here and make somebody stay. Like, he has packed his sh** before and I begged him not to walk out the door,” June says in a confessional. “But now him still saying that he’s unhappy, I wouldn’t want to do that because I did that once before. And so I’m OK saying, ‘There’s the door. Go be somewhere where you are happy.'”

And she tells him exactly that during their explosive fight.

“I don’t want to keep somebody here that doesn’t want to be here,” she tells him.

June then adds, “As much as I love you …” before Justin interjects, “You don’t love me! I’m sick of doing everything. I’m sick of being June’s assistant.”

June scoffs at that notion before conceding she has her faults but Justin’s no angel, either.

“You can’t say I’m always the problem when you can’t admit you are part of the problem, too,” she says.

Justin’s possible solution to the marital woes? June listening to his advice.

“If you want this to work you gotta be willing to sincerely take some of my advice sometimes,” he says, to which June responds with, “And how many times in the last year have I asked you to go to counseling?”

This triggers Justin to explode in anger.

“F**k you and counseling!” he shouts after expressing shock. “I’m not gonna keep investing into somebody who thinks she’s above everybody else.”

And with that, Justin gets up and storms out of the house, all the while June chuckles, which prompts Justin to bark one last time, “It’s not funny, June!”

The marriage has been on the rocks for some time, and things appeared to reach a boiling point after the couple’s trip to Denver, where they paid June’s daughter, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, a visit at Regis University.

That visit didn’t end well, resulting in June and Justin to get into another heated argument once back in Georgia. The marital woes — coupled with Alana’s claim that June is responsible for the missing $30,000 she made from TV appearances as a minor — have made for an incredibly tense season.

For her part, June defended herself ahead of that explosive episode airing back in April.

“I didn’t really steal any money,” June told ET at the time. “It’s not hundreds of thousands of dollars that is in question. It’s only one show and that’s Dancing With the Stars.”

June added, “Alana has around over $200,000 that she has access to but she is choosing not to have access to. She is making those decisions because she’s 18. So there’s more, there’s definitely more money out there.” 

Mama June: Family Crisis airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on WEtv.
