Well, here's an idea! After the roller-coaster that has been Mama June's life over the past several months, fans are hoping for a change when it comes to her show, Mama June: From Not to Hot. In fact, some are calling for Honey Boo Boo and Pumpkin to get their own reality show, and the more that we think about it, the more we realize it's not such a bad idea.

  • Everyone who's been following along already knows that June has been majorly spiraling lately.

    Her March arrest with boyfriend Geno Doak has led to quite a few issues for her and her family. Not only has Alana (Honey Boo Boo) moved out of her house -- she's now living with Lauren (Pumpkin), where she says she feels safer -- but there are claims that June is going broke and that Alana is protecting her money from her mother, who she fears could end up dipping into her savings.

    June hasn't shown any progress (or desire) to move on from Geno and better her life. So now, it seems that fans are mostly focused on her daughters instead.

    Her "that's a wrap" caption was a major tip-off, but she wasn't clear on what she was filming for.

    More of Not to Hot? Something else entirely?

    There's no way of knowing.

  • Seeing Alana's post has fans speculating that she and Pumpkin should be filming their own show.

    One fan came up with this super intriguing idea we're totally here for. We'd love to see Alana and Pumpkin on their own, living their best lives despite what they've been through with their family. These girls have had to deal with a lot this year, but they're sticking together, and that's really inspiring. 

    Seeing baby Ella would be a bonus ... and the angle of it including Mama June's road to recovery? Perfect.

    Maybe it'd be just the inspiration she needs to start getting healthy again.

  • Other fans weighed in, agreeing that it's definitely time for Alana and Lauryn to strike out on their own.

    We can't imagine what it must be like for them to see their mother struggling like this, especially since Alana felt the need to leave home, and Lauryn is now caring for a baby and her younger sister. 

    Whatever comes their way, we know they'll get through it together. Hopefully, the rest of us will get to follow along.
