TLC has canceled their hit show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo after matriarch Mama June Shannon started dating a convicted sex offender. The news got even worse when it was revealed that one of the victims involved was Mama June’s oldest daughter, Anna Cardwell. Initially, Anna Cardwell did not want to believe reports that her mother was dating a sex offender, but the mounting evidence against Mama June grew and it seems now there is no denying it. According to an Oct. 31 report, Anna Cardwell spoke to Entertainment Tonight about how her mother dating the man who harmed her makes her feel.
“It’s like she’s happy. She’s smiling and giggling when he’s around. You know, he’s a child molester, Mama. He did this to me. Why would you let him come around the girls knowing what he did? And reportedly done it to another girl? And Mama was like, ‘Oh, he never done it to another girl.'”
It seems that Mama June is willing to stand up for this man over her own daughters and Anna Cardwell has good reason to worry. Three of her sisters still live at home with Mama June, the youngest being Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star Alana Thompson. Fourteen-year-old Lauryn has continued to support her mother despite the pictures that have been published and the statements made by Anna Cardwell. Making the matter more disturbing is the fact that reports have stated Lauryn was present when Anna Cardwell was molested by the man that Mama June is now dating.
