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.
Mama June doesn’t care what supposed evidence you might have – she continues to deny dating convicted child molester Mark McDaniel and Sugar Bear is right by her side! Man – this story just gets more and more messed up!
Yesterday Mama June gave an impromptu and bizarre interview about what’s happening in her life since the story broke of her relationship with Mark and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was canceled by TLC as a result of the scandal. Standing outside her Georgia home, June laughed and acted flippantly for the cameras and saying nothing has changed with her family! “The whole truth will come out on my side,” she maintains.
“We are doing it behind closed doors, that’s how I am. I’m very quiet. I love my family…” June remarked. “We’re just hanging out as a family and handling it privately.”
One of the most horrifying reality TV stories we’ve ever had to report is the shocking case of Mama June rekindling her romance with Mark McDaniel, the man who spent 10 years in prison for molesting her then 8-year-old daughter Anna(“Chickadee”) Cardwell. This week Anna revealed that as an elementary school student when she initially told June about Mark abusing her, June did not believe her, but luckily a school teacher did and Mark spent 10 years in prison for child molestation.
Upon his release June has seemingly reignited their flame, dumping Sugar Bear, resulting in TLC pulling the plug on the Here Comes Honey Boo Booempire! June certainly is giving up a lot for tainted love – including the possibility of losing custody of her three minor children: Chubs (17), Pumpkin (14), and Honey herself, Alana. June has introduced Alana, 9, to Mark and the two were photographed together.
Now details from the police report and trial of Mark McDaniel have emerged revealing the absolutely horrific abuses he enacted against Anna, who was SO brave for coming forward and telling the adults in her life what she was going through. Anna initially told an elementary school teacher, who shocked by the graphic and very specific details of Anna’s story, immediately alerted authorities.

Mama Junedenied their relationship and insisted she would never do anything to hurt her kids. But here’s where it gets extremely shocking and upsetting. It turns out June’s eldest daughter Anna (Chickadee) is the one Mark molested! Mark spent 10 years in prison for forcing an 8-year-old to perform oral sex on him.
Initially it was reported that Mark molested a relative of June’s, but Anna is now speaking out and naming herself as the victim. Even more upsetting, there is photographic proof that Mark, now a registered sex offender, has had contact with June’s 9-year-old daughter Alana Thompson since his release from prison in March.
“Sugar Bear and I have decided to take some time apart to figure out some things in our relationship,” they said in a statement. “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.”
Well, that support may soon be over, because recent reports claim that Mama June has moved on and it is with a man from her past.
After initially being a huge hit, ratings for Here Comes Honey Boo Boo are sagging and the show has become stale. After all, for all their red neck eccentricities the family is pretty normal. Kinda. But are Mama June and Sugar Bear faking their cheating scandal for a storyline?
Sources share that the Boos Boos may have sold out to pressure to save their declining reality show and that producers helped orchestrate Sugar Bear‘s cheating to give the show a more exciting direction. Especially now that daughter Alana is done with pageants, the drama has been pretty lackluster. Season 1 averaged about 3 million viewers an episode, but the most recent fourth season had a season high of 1.8 million viewers an episode.
Publicly Sugar maintains that yes, he did make a profile on a online dating site, but that he “never acted on anything.” And “absolutely would never” cheat on June. But in secret he confirms that the scandal was a set-up – and Sugar is furious that he left himself be talked into such shenanigans!
Oh no! Another reality TV marriage bites the dust. Mama June has called it quits with her (not so) devoted Sugar Bear because she believes he’s cheating!
Sources reveal that Mama June caught Sug, real name Mike Thompson, trolling online dating sites and that the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo patriarch had a profile on PlentyOfFish.com with the handle “Georgiafighter31054.” The deets make it pretty unmistakably Sugar Bear! He’s seeking a longterm relationship with a woman who is adventurous.
Be careful on the roads, people! Stop texting and driving! Slow down! Use your headlights! For goodness sake, pay some friggin' attention when you're behind the wheel! I shall step off my soapbox now and inform you that on Monday, the Shannon Thompson clan of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo fame, was involved in a terrible car wreck. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured, but it sounds like a scary ordeal!
First reported by TMZ, sources claim that Sugar Bear was driving the family's new Suburban while June, Pumpkin (Lauryn), Chubbs (Jessica), and Honey Boo Boo (Alana) were along for the ride as passengers. Apparently, Sugar Bear was trying to make a left hand turn on a green light when a truck (allegedly speeding and sans headlights) plowed into the family's vehicle.
