The saga of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo just gets sadder and sadder. Last week TLC canceled the show after Mama June was allegedly discovered dating convicted sex offender Mark McDaniel.
Mama June denied 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.

When Anna was 8-years-old and June was dating Mark, Anna recalls Mark “would try and touch me and all that stuff.” She told June about what happened. “I talked to Mama and she was upset, crying and saying, ‘I don’t believe you, I don’t believe you, why would you do this to me?’ ” Anna recalls. “And I was like, ‘Mama, he did that to me and I can’t do anything about it. You were never there to see it you were always at work.”
Anna didn’t grow up with June; she lived with her grandmother, June’s mother, after June gave birth to her at 15. June even considered putting Anna up for adoption before her own mother stepped in.
Anna reveals that in 2012 that she moved back in with June for the purposes of filming Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. After the molestation her relationship with her mother had been distant. Anna is now married and was estranged from her family. She was not going to appear on HCHBB for the now-scrapped new season, that had been filming up until last week’s shocking discovery.
After Anna came forward with the abuse June dumped Mark and reported the situation to the police. When Honey Boo Boo came a’callin they worked to remedy their relationship. “Me and Mama realized we needed to put this behind us and get our relationship back on track.”
Last week on Facebook, Anna immediately denied the story, but now she’s not sure what to think.
“I’m just confused. I’m hearing one story from Mama and another one from someone else,” Anna confessed to People. “I believe she is seeing him and hanging around him.”
“My whole body believes that she is telling the truth, but my mind is going back and forth,” Anna admits. “I would feel hurt. I would not feel betrayed, but I would feel hurt. You know the past should be in the past and it should stay in the past and not come back out.” However Anna makes it clear – Mark will not be around her own daughter, now 2. “I would not let her see Kaitlyn unless Mark is out of the picture or away because I don’t want him nowhere near my child.”
TMZ says that as of now Anna no longer believes June after receiving “a lot more” information about June and Mark’s current situation! Like photos of the couple house hunting last month, appearing to be holding hands but definitely looking chatty and cozy! See the pics at TMZ.
June’s daughter Pumpkin is also spotted with June and Mark in the house hunting photos, which I suspect might actually be film stills from TLC since they were filming June looking at houses closer to her family in Hampton, GA after she split from Sugar Bear. (So then did TLC really already know about it?)
Disgustingly, in new photos posted by TMZ, June is posing for a photo with Alana and Mark!
And the story continues to get worse: multiple sources connected to the family reveal that June never got over Mark and reportedly even cheated on Sugar Bear with Mark – not the other way around as June has been misleading the public!
Sources say June kept a box of photos of Mark at her house, and Sugar Bear knew about them but she refused to get rid of them – even though Mark was the cause of frequent arguments between the couple! Sugar believed June was emotionally cheating on him with Mark – until his release from prison in March when sources say June rekindled their romance almost immediately. Sources tell TMZ June had all but left Sugar when she used discovering his online dating profiles as a reason to officially end the relationship.
As of now, there is also a real concern that June could lose custody of her three minor children due to her illicit relationship with Mark. And Mark could end up right back in prison for having contact with minor children.
There is no record of CPS investigating in the state of Georgia, but if I were Sugar Bear I would get Alana out of there ASAP. Despite the onslaught of evidence June continues to deny a relationship and Mark will not comment.
