She was just five years old when she was first on the show.
Audiences took interest in the eclectic family of Alana and her controversial mom.

She also became estranged from her mom in 2019, 后 Mama June’s battle with drugs spiraled out of control.

这 42-year-old mother-of-four explained they have been on TV for over 11-years now.
“Granted, we’ve made a career out of it when it fell in our lap,” June said. “But I don’t see Alana doing reality TV at the age of 40.”
