Mama June: ‘The Truth Will Come Out On My Side’
Mama June Shannon gave an exclusive interview to E! News yesterday to let everyone know that the protection of her kids is her “number one priority” which she’ll now demonstrate by giving indirect answers about whether she’s dating a child molester who raped one daughter in front of another one. She honestly should’ve been a lawyer that’s how convincing she is. Via Gawker:
E!: Have you talked to Mark lately?
June: No. That will all come out, I don’t want to say anything about anything.
E!: Do you want to say anything to the people who say you’re crazy and how can you let your child around that man?
June: No. But that will all come out.
E!: A lot of the people who love you say you would never be so foolish as to allow that man around your children.
June: Okay well let me say, that’s gonna come out.
As for what exactly she’s expecting to “come out,” I’m hoping it’s not these staged paparazzi photos she arranged with Sugar Bear who’s apparently not fighting for custody of Honey Boo Boo now because he’s broke as shit and doesn’t have anywhere to live, so he’s back to suckling off Boss Hogg’s teat. Because, again, THERE ARE PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE PEDOPHILE WITH HONEY BOO BOO. Not to mention, photos of Mama June buying him a car and house-hunting with them. Which shouldn’t even be necessary because it’s a fact that this man already molested one of her daughters, so there is absolutely no fucking reason in the world for any of them to be around him. Unless of course you live in a warm, buttery land of denial where you still think your daughter is a liar and lash out her for getting you investigated by child services. Which is exactly what’s happening. Via Entertainment Tonight:
“She never told me she believes me,” Cardwell tells ET. “She never said, ‘Hey Anna, I’m sorry for not believing you and I still don’t believe you to this day.'”
“It’s Mama’s fault,” she says. “She has to live with it. She has brung the past back and now she can’t get it away. I’m mad. I’m upset. I feel betrayed. I feel very hurt. That’s the main thing that I am — I feel very hurt that Mama let him come around.”
Cardwell says she even pleaded with her mother to stay away from McDaniel for the sake of her three younger sisters — Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon, 18; Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, 14; and Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, 9.
“It’s like she’s happy,” she says about Mama June’s state of mind. “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.'”
Have I mentioned Anna Cardwell is brave as shit? Anna Cardwell is brave as shit. And a fucking survivor who’s fighting like hell to not let her sisters drown in a goddamn sea of awful. Via USA Today:
“I talked to Mama the other day and Mama said, ‘If my kids are taken away, there’s going to be hell to pay.’ I thought to myself, ‘Mama you did it to yourself, you brought him around, you let him come around the girls.'”
Jesus Christ. What kind of hell is there left to pay? You’re dating the man who molested your own daughter because you think she’s a liar. What’s left after that? Dating two child molesters? Because that’s literally the only way this could get worse. If she just started storing them all over the house. “Pumpkin, g’on fetch Mama her slippers. Next to the ped’phile with the gimpy leg. No, the gimpy leg. That one’s got the lazy eye. I tell you these children, I love ‘em to death and do anything for ‘em, but sometimes… Wait, where Alana get to? Anyone seen her awhile? Eh, she’ll be alright.”
