Mama June to TLC: Duggar Sex Abuse Scandal Is Even Worse Than Ours!

No need to pay to see Mad Max: Fury Road this weekend because the real-life post-apocalypse is already upon us! And now for the bad news: Our wasteland hellscape of 2015 has replaced dueling bands of violent marauders with the Duggar family and June “Mama June” Shannon, who are now in a feud over who is the worst. Welcome to Garbagedome.

Following Josh Duggars’ confession to child molestation, June Shannon—usually a big fan of pedophiles—spoke to TMZ about how hypocritical it will be if TLC, former home of her show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, allows the Duggars’ 19 Kids and Counting to continue to air:

June tells TMZ there is no way TLC can justify keeping the Duggar family on the air yet yanking ‘Honey Boo Boo.’ June notes within hours of TMZ posting the pic of her cavorting with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel, TLC pulled the plug on her show.

June says she never molested anyone and McDaniel wasn’t ever on her show, yet Josh Duggar is a central figure on the TLC show and admitted to molesting some of his sisters, who are also on the show. What’s more, she believes Jim Bob and Michelle covered up their son’s misdeeds.


June says she may sue TLC for “blatantly unfair and inconsistent treatment.”

“I read that the Duggar family said, this happening with their son brought them closer to God and each other,” she adds. “So they’re saying it’s ok to have family touch time? Hell no.”


Two families enter. No family leaves.



John Mayer, a freshman who would love for you to come back to his dorm room so that he can play you the guitar, has dismissed his own lawsuit against Robert Maron, a watch dealer who, according to Mayer, sold the musician time pieces containing counterfeit parts. “Two years of research restored John Mayer’s belief that Bob Maron is an expert on Rolex watches, and confirmed that Bob Maron never sold him a counterfeit watch,” said Mayer and Maron in a joint statement. So you might say that the entire lawsuit was a waste... of time? [TMZ]


Official Australian documents prove that Rebel Wilson is in fact 35 and not, as she publicly claims, 29. Her age was first called into question when a former classmate came forward with a yearbook photo that suggests that Wilson graduated high school in 1997. Rebel has joked about her age on Twitter, but has yet to speak on the matter directly. Weird that an actress in Hollywood would resist being upfront about this kind of thing. [Radar]
