Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, Josh Efird, and their family have come down with COVID after Mama June exposed them. In this EXCLUSIVE preview of the June 24 episode of Mama June: Road to Redemption, Pumpkin gives an update on day 7 of their quarantine.
“She’s not feeling good. She’s not really wanting to eat,” Pumpkin says about her daughter, Ella. “And then Bentley is basically the same way. I’m really stressed. I really don’t know what else to do. It’s just very, very stressful.”
On day 8, Josh is sick in bed. He keeps coughing as he tries to rest. “My chest is killing me,” he says. Josh can’t even get up and out of bed. “Just go order the damn coffin. Call me when it gets here. Go on now,” Josh tells Pumpkin.
Meanwhile, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson is downstairs quarantining away from Pumpkin, Josh, and their kids. Pumpkin winds up giving both Ella and Bentley breathing treatments to help them feel better. While Ella tries to sleep, Pumpkin is a doting mom giving her a breathing treatment.
“I really don’t have nothing else for your mama, babe. I really don’t,” Josh says in the background. Josh is not happy that June exposed them all to COVID.
The next day, Josh isn’t feeling any better. He actually feels worse. When Josh hits his limit with COVID, he drives himself to the emergency room.
