Mama June Is Dating A Convicted Child Molester
“Will this’n here help you catch more keeds? I love you!”
Last month, we found out that somehow Sugar Bear done cheated on Mama June (I really stop joking about all of this as you’ll see in a minute.) because if Jon Gosselin has taught us anything, it’s that reality TV is a questionable pussy goldmine. On the same token, if reality TV has taught us anything else, it’s that it’s a hotbed for the very worst of humanity because nothing brings in the ratings like pure fucking awful. TMZ reports:
Mama June is seeing someone new, but there’s a big problem … the guy just got out of prison after serving time for molesting one of June’s relatives … TMZ has learned.
The new guy is 53-year-old Mark McDaniel. He was convicted in 2004 for aggravated child molestation. Prosecutors say he molested an 8-year-old child — forcing oral sex. June was dating McDaniel at the same time he molested the child.
WARNING: Rant coming.
This is why you don’t put white trash on TV. Granted, TLC is about to pull the plug because now they’re suddenly concerned, but this is the seedy underbelly of “country livin'” or “real America” or “redneck pride” or whatever hillbilly colloquialism you want to call the congealed backwoods sludge of everything that’s wrong with this country. It’s been conveniently edited out of the show, but it’s always been there just waiting to blow up in TLC’s face like pappy’s moonshine meth lab. And how do I know this? I live in a small town, so I interact with people exactly like this on an almost daily basis, and they are a soul-crushing stew of neverending abuse, codependency, obesity, anti-intellectual pride, and worst of all, child neglect. Although, sadly, these kids are lucky if they’re only ignored and left in filth-ridden trailers while their parents stuff their face with popcorn chicken at Walmart, but more than likely they’re abused by some deadbeat drunk, or in this case, molested and watched as their violator is welcomed back into the fold with open arms because the same shit probably happened to Mama June when she was a child, and the cycle continues. And sorry if all of this just got crazy real, but this is the shit going on in the background while everyone’s laughing at a giant woman putting “sugah in b’sghetti” for her future diabetic daughter. A daughter who’s about to deal with the crippling psychological minefield of no longer being a beloved, Red Bull-chugging child star thanks to her mom geting back together with a convicted pedophile that molested a “relative.” And so help me God, I don’t even want to hear that was one of her own kids. Because you know that’s next. Just.. goddammit. I’m drinking now.
UPDATE: And it was her own daughter. The dude molested her own daughter. I don’t want to be right!
