Watch Mama June’s Shocking Reaction to Daughter Pumpkin’s Pregnancy Reveal

Pumpkin‘s got a bun in the oven, and Mama Juneis speechless. 

On tonight’s episode of Mama June: From Not to Hot, June’s teenage daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon makes the bombshell announcement that she’s pregnant with her first child

“I’m kind of nervous,” Pumpkin tells the camera. “I’m sick, I’ve been sleepy and I’m freaking out. At this point I can’t talk to mama because she’s gonna freak out. And I can’t talk to my boyfriend Josh about it because I don’t want him freaking out unless it’s true.” 

But after taking a “million pregnancy tests” and paying a visit to her doctor, Pumpkin (who gave birth to baby Ella Grace Efird in December) and Josh find out they are indeed expecting and about two months along. 

Pumpkin decides she has no choice but to confide in Mama June, but not without a bit of apprehension. 

“I know how old mama was when she had her first kid, and her mom was not supportive at all,” the mom-to-be explains. “They didn’t really get along; they still don’t get along. I just hope mama’s not like that with me…. Let’s just pray she can hold her s–t together.”

The 17-year-old then calls June into her room, and suggests she “might want to sit down” before breaking the news.

And how does Mama June react? Press play on the video above to watch the confrontation all go down! 

Mama June: From Not to Hot airs Friday nights at 9 p.m. on WE tv.

Tom Petty died of accidental drug overdose, family reveals

Updated January 20, 2018 12:35:02

Legendary rocker Tom Petty’s death last year was due to an accidental drug overdose, his family says.

Key points:

  • Tom Petty was on seven different medications when he died of accidental drug overdose
  • His family hopes his death sheds light on opioid crisis
  • Petty was found unconscious, not breathing and in cardiac arrest in October

Petty, whose ringing guitar riffs, distinctive vocals and well-wrought everyman lyrics graced such hits as Free Fallin’ and American Girl, was found unconscious at his home on October 2 last year, and died in hospital that night.

His wife and daughter, Dana and Adria Petty, released the results of an autopsy in a statement on his Facebook page, saying coroner results showed the overdose was caused by a variety of medications.

“We knew before the report was shared with us that he was prescribed various pain medications for a multitude of issues including fentanyl patches and we feel confident that this was, as the coroner found, an unfortunate accident,” the statement said.

It was posted moments before the Los Angeles coroner’s office issued its official findings, which attributed Petty’s death to a “mixed toxicity” of fentanyl, oxycodone, generic Restoril, generic Xanax, generic Celexa, acetyl fentanyl, and despropionyl fentanyl.

The medical examiner’s report lists the manner of death as “accidental”.

Petty’s family said he had suffered from emphysema, a fractured hip and knee problems that caused him pain, but he was still committed to his 40th anniversary tour in the US.

“As he did, it worsened to a more serious injury,” the statement said.

“On the day he died he was informed his hip had graduated to a full on break and it is our feeling that the pain was simply unbearable and was the cause for his overuse of medication.”

Petty’s family said they hoped the report of his death would shed light on the opioid crisis in the US.

“Many people who overdose begin with a legitimate injury or simply do not understand the potency and deadly nature of these medications,” the statement said.

“On a positive note we now know for certain he went painlessly and beautifully exhausted after doing what he loved the most, for one last time, performing live with his unmatchable rock band for his loyal fans on the biggest tour of his 40-plus year career.

“He was extremely proud of that achievement in the days before he passed.”

Petty was born in Florida in 1950. He carved a career as a solo artist as well as with his band the Heartbreakers and as part of supergroup the Traveling Wilburys.

Tom Petty‘s cause of death has been revealed. 

E! News can confirm that Petty passed away of an accidental overdose as a result of taking multiple medications. Family members Dany and Adria Petty also confirmed the coroner’s findings in a lengthy statement posted to Tom Petty and the Heartbreaker‘s Facebook page.

Petty, who died on October 2, 2017 after suffering cardiac arrest, was prescribed several pain medications for a variety of medical reasons doctors said were attributed to hip and knee problems, as well as emphysema. 

Petty’s family wrote online, “Unfortunately Tom’s body suffered from many serious ailments including emphysema, knee problems and most significantly a fractured hip. Despite this painful injury he insisted on keeping his commitment to his fans and he toured for 53 dates with a fractured hip and, as he did, it worsened to a more serious injury.”

“On the day he died,” they continued, “he was informed his hip had graduated to a full on break and it is our feeling that the pain was simply unbearable and was the cause for his over use of medication.”

The 66-year-old “I Won’t Back Down” singer was rushed to the hospital from his Malibu, Calif. home on the evening before his death. He died at 8:40 p.m. PT the next day “surrounded by family, his bandmates and friends,” a statement from his manager to E! News said at the time. 

Petty’s loved ones revealed today that in addition to “various pain medications,” the iconic rocker was using Fentanyl patches, which they attributed to the “unfortunate accident.”

By addressing Petty’s autopsy report, the family said they hope to “spark a further discussion on the opioid crisis” and “feel that it is a healthy and necessary discussion and we hope in some way this report can save lives. Many people who overdose begin with a legitimate injury or simply do not understand the potency and deadly nature of these medications.”

Petty’s family shared they “now know for certain” that his death came “painlessly and beautifully exhausted after doing what he loved the most, for one last time, performing live with his unmatchable rock band for his loyal fans on the biggest tour of his 40 plus year career. He was extremely proud of that achievement in the days before he passed.”

The family then thanked fans from all over the world for their support, and asked for continued privacy “during this difficult time.”

Petty’s friends, peers and family gathered for a private memorial service at Los Angeles’s Self-Realization Fellowship: Lake Shrine in the days after his shocking death. A celebration of life honoring Petty followed. 

TMZ was first to report the story. 

Gymnastics’ Fierce Five: How They Gave a Voice to Survivors of Larry Nassar’s Abuse

The gymnastics world is standing by its survivors—upwards of more than 140 survivors to be exact. 

Olympic gold medalist Jordyn Wieber joined a growing chorus of women in a Michigan courtroom today, where she described years of alleged abuse suffered at the hands of Dr. Larry Nassar, who awaits sentencing on seven counts of criminal sexual misconduct. (The former USA Gymnastics physician has already been sentenced to 60 years in prison for federal pornography charges, and prosecutors have asked for a life sentence in this case.)  

More than 100 individuals are expected to address Nassar with victim-impact statements, sports stars like Aly Raisman receiving a round of applause as she condemned her alleged abuser for harming young athletes under the guise of “treatment.”

“I have both power and voice and I am only beginning to just use them,” she testified. “All these brave women have power and we will use our voices to make sure you get what you deserve, a life of suffering spent replaying the words delivered by this powerful army of survivors.”

Wieber’s coming forward made her the fourth member of the 2012 London Olympics team after Raisman, Gabby Douglas and McKayla Maroney to level accusations against Nassar. Then between the ages of 16 and 18, the four athletes plus Kyla Ross became known as the “Fierce Five,” bringing home only the second team gold medal in Olympic history. 

Following the 2012 Winter Games, their journeys both on and off the uneven bars have unfolded in ways not even they could have predicted. Five years later, Jordyn, Aly, Gabby and McKayla have united once more to give fellow survivors a platform to demand justice and move forward.

Perhaps Wieber, now 22-years-old, said it best today: “I’m an Olympian. Despite being abused, I worked so hard and managed to achieve my goal. But I want everyone, especially the media, to know that despite my athletic achievements, I am one of over 140 women and survivors whose story is important.”

“Our pain is all the same. And our stories are all important.”

In 2015, Jordyn announced she was retiring from gymnastics, calling her experience competing with the “Fierce Five,” “something we will all share with one another for life.” She continued to work as a manager for UCLA’s gymnastics team before graduating in 2017 with a degree in psychology. Wieber has since joined the university’s coaching staff and is dating fellow gymnast Chris Brooks

Raisman, who won three medals in 2012, returned to the sport after a well-deserved hiatus to compete at the Rio Games. As the oldest member of the 2016 Olympic women’s gymnastics team, Raisman won two silver and one gold medal with the help of her “Final Five” teammates. 

In November 2017, Aly publicly accused Nassar of sexual abuse and days later represented the #MeToo movement at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards. She shared onstage, “I am beyond disgusted that a decorated Olympic and USA Gymnastics doctor was able to prey upon so many over such a long period of time; and until we fully understand the flaws in the system that allowed this to happen in the first place—and enabled it to continue for decades—we can’t be confident it won’t happen again… I am determined to work towards real and meaningful change.”

Raisman, who published her own memoir in 2017, has posed for Sports Illustrated and works closely with organizations promoting body-positivity, also voiced her support for Simone Biles when she shared her own experience with Nassar. 

“I am so proud of you. You are incredible Simone. I stand with you,” Aly wrote on Twitter. “I am shaking reading your post. I know we will all get through this together.”

Her “not impressed” pout at the 2012 Games made McKayla an internet sensation, but the 22-year-old took a step back from gymnastics to act in small roles on shows like Bones and Superstore and pursue a career in music.  

A year after officially retiring from the sport, Maroney resurfaced on social media with a detailed letter addressing the “unnecessary” and “disgusting” things “that I had to endure” to compete in the Olympics. “It started when I was 13-years-old,” she wrote, “at one of my first National Team training camps, in Texas, and it didn’t end until I left the sport. It seemed whenever and wherever this man could find the chance, I was ‘treated.'”

In December 2017, McKayla filed a lawsuit against USA Gymnastics, Michigan State University and the United States Olympic Committee for negligence in the Nassar case, and it was revealed that she signed a NDA to remain silent over the claims as part of her $1.25 million settlement with USA Gymnastics. 

Despite reports that the former gymnast would be fined $100,00 if she testified against Nassar in court, Maroney’s victim-impact statement was read for the judge. 

It read in part, “People should know that sexual abuse of children is not just happening in Hollywood, in the media or in the halls of Congress. This is happening everywhere. Wherever there is a position of power, there seems to be potential for abuse.” 

Her emotional plea for a maximum sentence concluded, “Our silence has given the wrong people power for too long, and it’s time to take our power back.”

Gabby made history at the 2012 Olympics when she became the first African-American gymnast to win an all-around gold medal and first gymnast to win both the individual all-around and team competitions at the same Olympics. She continued to compete in the years that followed, qualifying for the 2016 Olympics to help the “Final Five” win another team gold.

Unfortunately, Douglas faced criticism for what some considered poor sportsmanship and unpatriotic conduct while at the Rio Games. The 22-year-old called the social media bullying “hurtful,” and apologized for not appearing supportive of her teammates. 

In a November 2017 Twitter post directed at Raisman, Douglas was accused of victim-shaming for saying women have a “responsibility” to dress “modestly” as to not “entice the wrong crowd.” Gabby ultimately came forward as a victim of Nassar’s abuse in a lengthy statement apologizing for letting her fans down.

She shared online, “I take my job as a role model very seriously and I always want to do my best to represent all the best qualities that a role model should embody. I admit there are times that I fall short. I didn’t view my comments as a victim shaming because I know that no matter what you wear, it NEVER gives anyone the right to harass or abuse you.”

Douglas continued, “It would be like saying that because of the leotards we wore, it was our fault that we were abused by Larry Nassar. I didn’t publicly share my experiences as well as many other things because for years we were conditioned to stay silent and honestly some things were extremely painful.”

The Fierce Five’s pain, as well as the hundreds of others who continue to suffer, has now become their power. Nassar is expected to be sentenced next week.
