On Monday's episode of Dr. Phil, the talk doc grilled "Mama" June Shannon about her relationship with registered sex offender Mark McDaniel, who molested June's daughter Anna Cardwell. Regarding the public knowledge of her relationship with McDaniel, which led to the cancellation of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, June said, "There's some truths and there's some lies that's out there, and there's the truth between that." She then danced all over the margins she set without ever leaving her seat.
More and more details about Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch Mama June Shannon's past continue to be unearthed as the mother draws ire for her reported involvement with the convicted sex offender who allegedly molested her daughter. TMZ reports Mama June was prosecuted in 2009 for not paying years of child support for that daughter, Anna "Chickadee" Cardwell.
In the continuing, upsetting saga of the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo family, Mama June Shannon revealed to Entertainment Tonight (in an interview that will air this evening) that the father of two of her daughters—17-year-old Jessica Shannon and 14-year-old Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon—is convicted sex offender Michael Anthony Ford.
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.
While Honey Boo Boo mom Mama June Shannon has denied that she's dating the man who reportedly molested her then-eight-year-old daughter Anna Cardwell in 2002, new photos show she went on vacation with Mark McDaniel in September. Lee "Uncle Poodle" Thompson, uncle to Mama June's nine-year-old daughter Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, also went on the vacation and has published the photos in the National Enquirer.
Wresting the dark story away from TMZ, E! aired an "exclusive interview" with Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch Mama June, who was finally forced to (sort of) address the deeply depressing rumor that she's back together with a convicted child molester who raped her oldest daughter.
According to Spalding County Superior Court documents obtained by Radar, Honey Boo Boo mom Mama June Shannon has two daughters who were traumatized by her child molester boyfriend, Mark McDaniel. The documents reveal that at least once during 2002, Mama June's then-three-year-old daughter Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon was in the bed while McDaniel molested her then-eight-year-old sister Anna Cardwell.
The Honey Boo Boo saga just keeps getting sadder. In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight that will air Thursday, Mama June's daughter Anna Cardwell speaks out about her mother's rekindled relationship with the man who molested her when she was eight years old. Anna says Mama June is "happy" to be back with Mark McDaniel. "She's smiling and giggling when he's around," she says.
The details surrounding TLC's cancelation of Honey Boo Boo only get sadder. TMZ reports today that Mama June never got over her convicted child molester boyfriend Mark McDaniel, even though the child he abused 10 years ago was her own daughter. TMZ says Mama June started seeing McDaniel again recently while she was still with Honey Boo Boo's dad, Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson.
Just when you thought this story couldn't get shittier or more nauseating, TMZ drops the bomb that the relative of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch June Shannon's that her reported boyfriend, convicted child molester Mark McDaniel, forced oral sex on 10 years ago, when she was 8 years old, is none other than June's daughter Anna.
The Screen Junkies Show is riding high on the success of last week's episode, which featured Seven Psychopaths stars Christopher Walken, Colin Farrell, and Sam Rockwell reciting lines from TLC's Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, so they decided to "flip the script" and give Here Comes Honey Boo Boo stars Honey Boo Boo Child and Mama June a chance to respond in kind by reenacting scenes from Christopher Walken's appropriately wacky repertoire.
