It came as the teenager contemplated whether or not she wanted to invite June to her high school graduation.
In the snippet from Mama June: Road to Redemption Honey Boo Boo pondered the decision while speaking with the family’s psychiatrist, Dr. Ish.
‘Mama’s going to do what Mama’s going to do whether we tell her not to or not,’ the young girl said to the doctor.
The preview also revealed that Thompson was upset that her older sister Lauryn ‘Pumpkin’ Shannon, 22, had blindsided her, as she didn’t know she’d be speaking with Dr. Ish at the time.
