RIP TRAIN! It’s with a heavy heart I write that the one constant that was once part of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is whistling a farewell to the once revered (at least by me) reality family of McIntyre, Georgia. While she may not make the best decisions (I realize that is the understatement of the year), matriarch June Shannon is still being fiscally responsible with her family’s television earnings…even if that’s the only way she’s being responsible!
The family is still facing backlash from the controversy surrounding her ex-boyfriendMark Daniel. Mark is a convicted child molester who linked back up with June upon his release from prison. Sadly, her oldest daughter was one of his victims. Her lapse in judgment (to put it VERY mildly) caused TLC to cancel the family’s hit show.
“TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and ended all activities around the series, effective immediately,” the network announced almost immediately. “Supporting the health and welfare of these remarkable children is our only priority. TLC is faithfully committed to the children’s ongoing comfort and well-being.”
Now that Mama June has lost her job when Here Comes Honey Boo Boo got cancelled over her affair with a registered sex offender (and all the insanity that followed!), and she’s also having her paycheck seriously docked for ruining the almost fully-filmed fourth season as a result of her salacious behavior, someone at Vivid believes she’s hard up enough to accept a major payday for a sex tape. Please, no. Just please. NO.
According to sources Vivid approached June and Sugar Bear with the possibility of filming a specialty sex tape, but also performing for the network’s website!
Well, I can’t say Mama June was cast inappropriate because her actions are both dumb and dumber (more like gross and grosser), but the former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch just announced that she’s appearing in the new Dumb & Dumber To movie!
Let’s all just first recognize that this was filmed before TLC canceled Honey Boo Boo because of June’s relationship with convicted child molester, Mark McDaniel. And before we all learned that it was the same man who actually molested June’s daughter Anna Cardwell.
Anyway, Juneannounced on Facebook that she is appearing in a cameo role as Jeff Daniel‘s wife in the new film.
Things continue to grow more and more twisted for the Here Comes Honey Boo family. Anna Cardwell has again spoken out about Mama June‘s relationship with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel and revealed it has deteriorated Anna’s own relationship with her younger sister Pumpkin, who has been led to believe that Mark is her father!
Anna reveals that Lauren “Pumpkin” Shannon does not know who her biological father is and has always assumed it was Mark. “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…,” Anna heartbreakingly reveals.
If you’ve been following the deplorable news of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo then you know Mama June is now back in a relationship with the man who molested her eldest daughter Anna Cardwell. If that’s not disgusting enough, Anna now reveals that June has stolen money her children earned on reality TV to buy him a car and other things!
Mark McDaniel spent ten years in prison for child molestation charges, got out, and immediately rekindled things with June, causing her to break-up with Sugar Bear, put all of her daughters, but most specifically Honey Boo Boo herself, Alana, at risk. Anna believes her sisters are in danger “if Mark’s back in the picture.” Anna, now 20, feels betrayed by June’s decisions and claims that June still doesn’t believe Mark molested her.
Anna initially did not believe reports that her mother had gotten back together with Mark, but has since confirmed their relationship. Anna feels June’s relationship with Mark is “ruining” her mother’s life, leading her to not only endanger her children and their relationships to their mother, but also steal from them!
TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo when the scandal broke that Mama June got back together with Mark McDaniel, the man who molested her daughter Anna Cardwell. The network had nearly completed filming for the fourth season when they decided to pull the plug and not air the footage – and they blame Mama June entirely! As a result Mama June will lose most of her salary for the unaired season – but her three daughters will be paid-in-full!
TLC has made the decision to put paycheck money in trust for Pumpkin, Chubs, and Alana Thompson, while seriously reducing June’s earnings under the stipulation that she violated the networks “morality” clause when she entered into a relationship with a child molester. The network is confident they have the legal grounds to do this, says TMZ.
Sugar Bear and Uncle Poodle, Alana’s uncle, will also receive their full salaries because they are not responsible for any behaviors that would have put the show at risk of cancellation.
