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.
