Mama June’s Trying To Get Honey Boo Boo Back On TV Already
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was cancelled last October after TLC producers learned that not only was Mama June Shannon dating Mark McDaniels a convicted child molester who sexually assaulted her daughter Chickadee, but was letting him sleep in the same bed as Alana (Honey Boo Boo) who is the same age Chickadee was when she was molested. And I’m putting all of that generously with as minimal graphic detail as possible because it’s a goddamn shitshow of everything wrong with redneck culture. Redneck culture that apparently Hollywood can’t wait to put back on TV because it’s a perpetual shit-spraying machine devoid of original thought. TMZ reports:
Honey Boo Boo is far from done … the fam is back in L.A. meeting with producers this week … but convicted sex-offender Mark McDaniel could derail everything.
Sources say several networks believe the world has been Boo-deprived for too long … TLC cancelled the show back in October. The idea being shopped is a “Beverly Hillbillies” theme with a new house, money, and drivers while they adjust to being famous around town.
But here’s the problem … we’re told producers want to drudge up Chickadee’s molestation business with McDaniel and use it to inaugurate the series, but the family says they’re dealing with it privately in therapy and want to move on.
Big shot producers think the hook will be watching Mama June and Sugar Bear “patch things up” like somebody accidentally scratched the car, texted an old girlfriend, or got drunk and fucked a goat. Let’s be realistic, bringing a convicted child molester around who already molested one of your kids could happen to anybody. We’ve all been there, right? And by we I mean the people I’m going to ask at Walmart with a megaphone. They’re real Americans. Now who wants to give me a lift in their coal-roller? I can’t show my face there with a sensible exhaust system. They’ll kill me. They were very specific.
