During last week’s episode, Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson and wife Jennifer shocked the family by attending Pumpkin and Josh’s daughter Ella’s third birthday party.
Drama ensued when Sugar Bear and Jennifer unexpectedly game face to face with June, 41, and boyfriend Geno Doak.
June and Sugar Bear share 15-year-old daughter Alana, who’s also known as Honey Boo Boo.
In an exclusive clip for the upcoming episode of Mama June: Road to Redemption, Josh confronted his boss Sugar Bear about the dramatic fight.
As the 24-year-old showed up to work, Sugar Bear admitted he wasn’t sure if he still had a job.

He asked: “How do you expect me to give you your job back after yesterday?”
Josh responded: If I can be completely honest, I didn’t know that June and Geno were even coming. I’m kind of pissed that they showed up out of nowhere.
“I tried to call you at least 20 times to let you know that they were there, that way you could’ve turned around and there would’ve been no spitting spatting and they just ruined it.”
Pumpkin’s husband then noted that June and Jennifer ruined the party, adding: “But that’s women, you know what I’m saying? That ain’t us. I don’t see us out here b***hing and arguing lie women.”
Sugar Bear said that Jennifer won’t be happy if Josh keeps his job, while Josh rebutted by saying that Pumpkin will be mad if he’s fired.

In a confessional, Sugar Bear said: “I really don’t want to fire Josh but Jennifer’s really angry at me. You know what they say, ‘Happy wife, happy life.’ So what am I supposed to do?”
Cutting back to their conversation, Josh argued that he needs the job and that Sugar Bear won’t be able to find an employee better than him.
Sugar Bear quickly made up his mind that Josh could keep his job and then men got back to work.
During a confessional, Josh said: “I’ve never been so happy just to be able to cut grass and to keep money coming in and to not worry about finding another job.”
Sugar Bear added in a private interview that Josh is “a good guy,” noting that “his family includes Alana.”
