There have been a lot of very ugly secrets exposed about Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star Mama June Shannon since the news broke that she had allegedly struck up a romantic relationship with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel, the same man who her daughter Anna Cardwell claims sexually abused her when she was just 8 years old.
Cardwell has since spoken out about her mother’s betrayal during a heartbreaking interview with Entertainment Tonight, where she explained how she would react if she ever had to see her abuser again.
“I would look at him in disgust and spit in his face and say, ‘You f***ing leave or I’m gonna call the cops,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “You’re not supposed to be here, you know what you did.'”
Although Mama June denies the claims that she is dating McDaniel again, the evidence against her is certainly mounting.
After the abuse Cardwell suffered, she went to live in Griffin, Georgia, with her grandmother, Sandra Hale, However, according to recent reports, Mama June wanted to be closer to her daughter in 2012 after she scored the TLC show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, and the alleged reason why will disgust you.
A source revealed to RadarOnline that Mama June wanted to bump TV ratings, and she thought that her daughter Anna’s teenage pregnancy would do that.
“June bribed Anna with money to move in with the family,” a source claims. “She offered her $500 a month because she believed Anna’s unmarried teenage pregnancy would create good story lines.”
The thing that makes this even more revolting is the fact that Anna has since revealed to the publication that she feels “uncomfortable” with fame, but now she has been forced to deal with her mother’s betrayal in front of millions of people.
