In another twist to the depressing Honey Boo Boo molestation saga, Mama June's 20-year-old daughter Anna Cardwell revealed to Dr. Drew last night that Mama's younger daughter Pumpkin believes Mark McDaniel is her father. McDaniel molested Anna when she was eight, and Pumpkin witnessed it, according to court docs.
Last night on HLN, Anna talked to Dr. Drew about McDaniel's abuse and how she feels about Mama June dating him again now. "I'm hurt," she kept repeating. She also offered an explanation as to why Pumpkin, who was only three when she watched Anna get molested, is defending her mother:
[Mark] was supposed to be [Pumpkin's] so-called father or whatever it is. You know, out of all the kids we have, Mama does not know who Pumpkin's dad is. And Pumpkin thinks it's Mark which kind of hurts my feelings, because Mama is making her believe that someone who did that to me is her father. Now Pumpkin hates me for it...
You can watch video of that statement below:
Anna says McDaniel may have originally come back into Mama June's life this year because McDaniel wanted to "surprise" Pumpkin after he got out of jail.
Pumpkin, now 14, has consistently defended her mother in the press and on Instagram, sticking with Mama June's line that Mama hasn't seen McDaniel "in 10 years." Mama June and McDaniel have been photographed together multiple times in recent months.
Anna says Pumpkin has been "cussing me out, saying screw you, F you. I don't know what to do anymore."
