Mom June Concerned: Pumpkin wants to quit reality TV

She told ET Online: “It’s difficult… because I also try to deal with it personally, and then I have to film it as well. Even in this season, it’s a bit difficult because going back in time is wearing out, not only for me, physically, but mentally. I don’t want to go back to that mental state that I was when my mom was addicted and had to step in and do all the things I was doing without really taking care of myself.

“At this point, I really feel like I’ve worked hard as a woman, [done] therapy, and really working and taking that time for myself and for my family, ”she adds. “Honestly, I hate to go back in time. “

Regarding her relationship with her mother, Pumpkin says things are “complicated” and that she and Mama June are currently working to set boundaries.

“As it stands, we haven’t seen each other for a year. So it’s very complicated to continue living and not being able to share these little moments with my mother, ”admits Lauryn,“ I think, not only for myself, but for Alana, and even for [my 3-year-old daughter] Ella because she loves her Gigi. She loves to be around her.

“But as a mother, as Alana’s guardian and as Ella’s mother, I have to protect them,” she notes. “I have a job. [Mama June] can be sober, but I don’t want to take any risks either, because before when she said she was sober, she wasn’t necessarily sober… It’s not necessarily that I’m not proud of her, neither do I. I don’t want the hopes of the children or me to be high like I have done many times before.
