In the scene from the upcoming Mama June: Road to Redemption episode, June got a taste of prison life as she sat in an orange jumpsuit, speaking with the former inmate in a jail cell.

The woman, Malika, explained that she wanted to prepare the Shannon family matriarch for her possible incarceration.

She told the TV star: “You need to learn a lesson. Who knows, you might have to do those two years. If you end up in prison, June, the best advice I could give you, don’t speak unless you’re spoken to.”

On the topic of advice, Malika added: “Don’t make any f***ing friends. Don’t ask anybody for anything. Don’t stare nobody in the face. Keep to yourself.”

After hearing all of the tips she might need to take into account one day, June admitted in her camera confession that her “anxiety level is out the damn roof.”

The mother of four added: “I don’t want to be her. I don’t want to be in and out of the system. That ain’t me. I’m not cut out for jail.”

To make her anxiety even worse, Malika warned her to do her best to make sure no one ever found out her true identity.

The former inmate explained: “If they find out that you are Mama June…they gonna take money from you. They gonna use you, they gonna make you out to be somebody’s b***h in there. They gonna take that sh*t and use it against you.”

June said she “didn’t want to listen” when her boyfriend Geno Doak and her daughters tried to tell her that she might end up in jail, but this conversation with a fellow addict who has already been to jail was “hitting home.”

After being reminded that she wouldn’t be able to “touch” or “hug” her kids if she’s locked up, June realized she’d “lose everything if [she goes] to prison.

She added: “I’ve worked so hard to get my family back together, I cannot be without the girls.”

Recently, June made the bold statement in an Instagram post as she celebrated about being off drugs and alcohol for 16 months.

She had a "bonding" moment with all of her four daughters during an emotional reunion at pregnant Lauryn "Pumpkin" Efird's baby shower.

June told The Sun her reunion with her daughters "was really good" as she hadn't seen all the girls at once in a very long time.

Pumpkin is expecting her second child with her husband, Joshua Efrid.

June revisited her prison sentence in a preview trailer for the WeTV show.

At the beginning of the clip, June ensured her family and friends that she "will not be going to prison," but her boyfriend Geno exclaimed: "She's not listening to me."
