The Honey Boo Boo horror show continues: Sandra Hale, mother of June "Mama June" Thompson and grandmother to Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, told ET that she fears for Alana's safety now that her daughter has reportedly reunited with ex boyfriend Mark McDaniel, a convicted child molester. According to Hale, child services is currently investigating the family.

Hale tells ET that she believes her daughter continues to see McDaniel despite June's public statements that claim otherwise.

"I feel they have [been seeing each other], yes. Because pictures don't lie," she says, referring to the recently published photos of Alana, June and McDaniel on a house-hunting trip.

Asked whether or not she thinks her 9-year-old granddaughter is in danger, Hale replied, "Yes. The reason I say that is because that's about the same age he likes. [The same age] he messed with Anna."

It was Hale who first brought June's eldest daughter, Anna "Chickadee" Cardwell, to the police after learning that McDaniel had molested her when she was 8. And Hale has been in contact with Child Services this time as well.

June recently spoke to US Weekly about her relationship with McDaniel and her children, telling the magazine that "the protection of [her] kids is [her] number one priority."

In a previous interview with ET, Cardwell said that Mama June "never told me she believes me" about the molestation allegations.

This story just gets bleaker and bleaker.
