Her husband doesn’t like begging for cash

There was some tension between Pumpkin and her husband during the TikTok Live stream as he didn’t like her taking money from fans. Per The Ashley, Josh reportedly stormed out of the house after telling his wife she needed to give the money back to the people who donated it. Now, fans can assume Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon didn’t actually give any of the money back as her husband requested as she proceeded to defend taking the money. She explained that her husband did want the help, he was just too proud to ask for it.

Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon did reassure the fans who sent money during her TikTok Live that she would be using the money to get caught up on her car payment to prevent it from being repossessed.

In response to her TikTok Live, fans point out that the family tends to live beyond their means with fast food, tattoos, and vacations. So, many fans admit they have a hard time feeling bad for her or wanting to send her any cash.

  1. Any celebrity who gets paid should not be asking the public for money. They need to learn how to live within their means. These reality shows have really ruined things for people who appear on them. Take the girls from 16 and pregnant. If they weren’t on any of those shows, they wouldn’t have the money that they have. They wouldn’t be buying new houses, new cars all the time and going on lavish vacations. They would be working hard to provide a living for their children. Instead these people are all living in a fantasy world. What happens when the celebrity status wears off?

  2. I don’t think she should taken the money she should’ve given it back. I’m sure they made money to pay her car note. What about people who are not on TV they have to figure it out. Well my days are not going to watch the show anymore.

  3. It is obvious they have never taken a class on personal finances. Not even a savings account, obviously, and probably not a saving account for her children’s education. If you can not afford their car, but can spend hundreds a month on fast food, Starbucks and other things that are not needed. Tattoos are great when you have the money and all else is paid and the art wouldn’t take from their children’s needs. It is quite selfish and only relying on the show to pay you is not the brightest thing to do. They need to meet with a financial counselling service and get on track to have things in the future, such as the house they live in not being taken back by the bank. I would not give any money to her as she has numerous spending habits that need to end. She and her husband have made their bed and need to grow up and be reasonable for the needs of their children. Not the wants by the parents. Also getting a job, even part time would help out as I think her hubby has or had a job. Time to face the music on their over spending and in jeopardy of losing their cars, home and if they can not afford to take care of their children, they too could be taken away too. It is not a joke, these two need to get jobs. Be responsible. I wish them all the luck, and stop expecting a handout out from others.
