Mama June’s kids are her first priority, apparently

Mama June has been rightfully coming under some serious heat since she’s split up with Sugar Bear and started hanging around with her ex-boyfriend again, who just so happens to be a child molester that sexually abused her own daughter Anna. Lovely. And while people fear for Honey Boo Boo now that McDaniel is back on the scene.

She’s denied being with McDaniel several times, but everyone knows she is – she even bought him a new car recently. But she still swears that her kids are her first priority and she’d never let anything happen to him.

From US Weekly:

No worries? Mama June gave a bizarre on-camera interview with E!, which aired on Wednesday, Oct. 29. The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star has been under fire recently after claims surfaced that she is dating registered sex offender Mark McDaniel.

The mother of Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, Anna Cardwell, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, and Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon appeared unfazed throughout the interview, laughing, smiling, and throwing up the deuces sign. When asked about the loss of her hit TLC reality series, the Thompson family matriarch didn’t appear concerned, saying, “I can’t say anything bad about the show. I can’t say anything bad about TLC.”

The reporter then asked if June had been in touch with her eldest daughter Anna Cardwell, who claimed in a recent Entertainment Tonight interview that her mother’s boyfriend had molested her when she was 8 years old.

“I talk to her — I talk to all my kids,” the smiling reality star replied. “We’re all doing fine. We’re just hanging out as a family and handling it privately. The protection of my kids is my number one priority.”

I mean, this is just a hot ass mess, and that’s putting it lightly. I mean, in one sense, I get that she’s not going to come out and answer these questions with any amount of honesty. After all, how do you defend yourself against something like this? You can’t, because it’s wrong any way you slice it. What’s insane is that she’s still even agreeing to do interviews, considering. If I was that terrible of a person who was putting my kids in harm’s way (not to mention HER involvement with him, which… how could you even?) I would shut myself off from the entire rest of the world forever.

Mama June kept pictures of her child molester boyfriend for years

mama june honey boo boo

Sigh. This just keeps getting worse and worse. Following the cancellation of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and the revelation that Mama June’s child molester boyfriend actually sexually abused her oldest daughter, Anna, it seems that this guy was on the scene for much longer than it seemed.

From TMZ:

Multiple family sources tell TMZ … June kept a box of photos of her and McDaniel in the house … something Sugar Bear knew about and protested, to no avail.  She would NOT get rid of them.

We’re told McDaniel — who molested June’s then 8-year-old daughter Anna — was the subject of frequent arguments between June and Sugar Bear.  He felt she was still emotionally in a relationship with McDaniel … even though he had been locked up for years.

Our sources say June was seeing McDaniel while she was still with Sugar Bear — he got out of prison in March. The family now believes it was actually June who was cheating, not Sugar Bear, and she used the online dating story to get out of a relationship she had already rejected.

Damn. Frankly, especially with as much press as this whole thing is getting, I would say it won’t be long before Child Protection is knocking on their door and the kids are removed from the house. That would be the smart thing, to be honest. Child molesters are NOT one time offenders, I’m sorry, and the fact that she would have him anywhere near her or her kids is disgusting. So, so sad.

Mama June’s daughter Anna says she was molested by her mother’s boyfriend

honey boo boo

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo got cancelled earlier this week after it was revealed that since her split from Sugar Bear (who was caught trolling for ladies online, don’t forget), Mama June had hooked up with her ex, who also happened to be a convicted child molester. Mama June denied it, but TLC wasn’t taking any chances, and they put the breaks on that shit real quick. Well, now things just got a whole lot worse: her daughter Anna claims she was molested by that very boyfriend.

From Radar Online:

As Radar exclusively reported, McDaniel was indicted in June 2003 for aggravated child molestation and aggravated sexual battery on his young victim, who Radar can now reveal to be Anna. (She has given Radar her permission.)

The disgraced pervert “did then and there unlawfully perform an immoral and indecent act which did involve an act of sodomy to Anna Shannon with intent to arouse and satisfy the sexual desires of said accused and said act involving the mouth of said Anna Shannon and the sex organ of the accused,” district attorney Tommy K. Floyd wrote in Henry County, Georgia court papers obtained by Radar. The abuse occurred multiple times between October 2002 and March 2003.

Though the case was dismissed, McDaniel was later convicted on aggravated child molestation charges in another case in nearby Spalding County.

According to the Georgia Sex Offender Registry, he was sentenced to ten years in prison for his crime. He was released from Dodge State Prison on March 1, 2014.

Well, that’s lovely. Anna also insists that Mama June is indeed back with this asshole, which… what? I used to think she was given way too hard of a time and that she’s actually really intelligent and amazing and this fantastic mother who wants what’s best for her children, but if this is true, that’s clearly not the case. What’s wrong with people?

Honey Boo Boo’s parents Mama June and Sugar Bear have split!

mama june sugar bear honey boo boo

Nooooo! How could this be happening?! Honey Boo Boo‘s parents, Mama June and Sugar Bear, have split! They really seemed to love each other and were living the hillbilly dream… so what could have gone wrong? Well, Sugar Bear is a cheating bastard who has been posting ads on dating websites to find women!!

From TMZ:

We’re told Mama June has repeatedly caught Sugar Bear trolling on online dating sites. One of them is plentyoffish.com, in which Sugar Bear — with the handle Georgiafighter31054 — says “i love to hunt fish and ride 4wheelers and have a good time.  i luve muddy Boggs and love to ride in the mudd.”

Mama June has stopped wearing her wedding ring (technically the couple was never married, but they did have a commitment ceremony).

Our sources say Mama June plans on taking the kids and moving out — once the latest round of filming “Here Comes Boo Boo” is done … so she can be closer to her relatives.  She hasn’t fully decided on the move.

We’re told the producers of the show are scrambling to try and figure out what’s next.

June and Sugar Bear tell TMZ, “Sugar Bear and I have decided to take some time apart to figure out some things in our relationship.  We are taking things day by day but regardless of what happens the girls will always be our #1 priority.  We want to thank ya’ll for your support.”

First of all, what the fuck, Sugar Bear? Not feeling that shit. Also, way to go, Mama June. At least SOMEBODY has some self-respect here. She could teach Selena Gomez a few lessons, I’d say.

I love these as a family, but hell to the no on Sugar Bear trolling the dating sites. What, because he’s got a TLC show now, he thinks he’s hot shit? BZZZ, WRONG. I’m so glad June didn’t stay with him out of fear of messing up the show or whatever. Give her all the shit you want, but she’s repeatedly proven how awesome she is (see: how she’s invested the show money for the kids, etc.).

Honey Boo Boo’s Mama June “Shocked” By 100lb Weight Loss

mama june

Don’t even get me started defending Honey Boo Boo or that whole family, because I will not stop until everyone who talks shit about this family shuts the hell up and realises their own ignorance. What many see as an obese redneck family with no class or sophistication is actually a really loving clan led by the incredibly intelligent and down-to-earth Mama June who is smart enough to have put the money from their TLC reality series away for her kids’ future instead of squandering it on some real bullshit. The show doesn’t have to be your cup of tea – I don’t take particular joy in watching them throw spaghetti strands at the wall or having fart contests – but I certainly don’t feel the need to put them down.

Anyhoo, Mama June – often criticised for her appearance, as happens – has dropped over 100lbs over the past couple of years without doing much besides becoming more active and changing her eating habits a bit. Here’s what she had to say to Access Hollywood (via DS):

“When I got on the scale, I was very, very shocked. I used to weigh close to 400lbs.

“Do I feel better? Yes, in a way I [do]. I’m more happy with myself. I try to tell people, be happy with you [no] matter what people say.”

Get it, Mama June! She also said she gets a lot of attention from men now, since many like “thick girls”. LOL. Don’t worry, she’ll never cheat on Sugar bear.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Introduces Scratch-And-Sniff TV

mama june here comes honey boo boo

Hey who feels like vomiting today? Great, I have just the thing! Here Comes Honey Boo Boo premieres tonight with a special twist: scratch-and-sniff TV! The TLC nightmare put scratch-and-sniff cards in People and Us Weekly. And there’s a special method to this madness. From Business Week:

According to TLC, it works like this: When the show flashes numbers onscreen during the episode, viewers will be instructed to smell a correspondingly numbered card. [...] if you scratch the right one during the right scene…you’ll feel like you’re experiencing a fart.

And that’s exactly what I want from my television viewing experience.

While this dastardly show isn’t the first to use Smell-O-Vision, it’s the first show in decades to do it, and the first reality show. Why couldn’t they have done this for Cupcake Wars or Top Chef?

Who would watch and do this? SHOW YOURSELF!

PETA Hates Honey Boo Boo Child

A photo of Honey Boo Boo Child

How horrible, right? How could you hate an innocent little child like Honey Boo Boo? If you don’t like her, fine, or if you think she’s trashy, whatever. I see you up there on your high horse, I get it. But hate? That’s just sad.

It’s because she has a pet chicken. See that photo up there? The chicken’s name is Nugget. And PETA thinks that is the least cool thing to name a pet chicken.  They want her to rename the chicken “Not A Nugget,” which for some reason just isn’t as catchy, and they want Honey Boo Boo to teach her family and all her friends that “they should be nice to chickens by not eating them.”

They also let her know that there are some super tasty vegan-chicken nuggets in grocery stores, which have the fun and deliciousness of chicken nuggets without the slaughter. They sent her some of those nuggets, along with a shirt with a chicken on it that reads “I am not a nugget.”

Oh, PETA. Stay classy.
