Unbelievably, 'Honey Boo Boo' Story Gets Even Worse (VIDEO)

Honey Boo Boo child molester

The Honey Boo Boo story just keeps getting worse and worse. First we had the allegations that Mama June is dating a child molester, then TLC cancelled the show, then rumors started flying that Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson wants to fight June for custody of their daughter Alana, and now June’s daughter Anna Marie "Chickadee" Cardwell has spoken to ET about her claims that she was molested by Mark McDaniel, the convicted sex offender June’s accused of being romantically involved with.

Cardwell says McDaniel molested her when she was 8 years old, and she also says she feels “betrayed” by her mother’s decision to get back together with this man.


The allegations are coming fast and furious, with family members turning on each other in the wake of TLC’s decision to cancel the show. It’s hard to know what’s true and what isn’t, but here’s what Anna Marie says in the advance clip of her ET interview, which will air tonight:

It’s Mama’s fault. She has brought the past back. I feel betrayed. He’s not supposed to be around kids and she let him around Alana and Pumpkin.

Here’s the clip:

June has been denying the reports, posting via Facebook,

I have not seen that person in 10 years and don’t want to see that person.

Sugar Bear’s brother “Uncle Poodle” Thompson has entered the social media fray, posting the following rant before subsequently deleting it:

Why not just be honest for a change? You may try to bash me or dig up old dirt but honestly none of it compares to how you have treated my brother and allowed a convicted child molester who molested your oldest daughter to be around your 14 and 9-year-olds.

Ohhhhhhh man. I just ... I don’t know, this is all so sad. I’m sad for anyone who experienced abuse at the hands of this man and I’m sad that the media has turned a family’s tragedy into something that can be packaged and sold as entertainment. I’m sorry for the young kids, who don’t deserve to get dragged into this public mess, and I’m sorry Mama June apparently decided to do her level best to make every crappy redneck stereotype seem like it's based in truth.

What are your thoughts at this point? Do you think Mama June should lose her kids?
