Earlier today, TLC announced that it was canceling Here Comes Honey Boo Boo in the wake of rumors that Mama June was now dating an ex boyfriend who had just finished serving prison time for molesting an 8-year-old girl. According to TMZ, that 8-year-old girl was none other than Mama June's daughter Anna, nicknamed "Chickadee." Ugh.
TMZ reports that June had tried to hide her rekindled relationship with Mark McDaniel from her daughter (now an adult). But now, it appears, the jig is up.
Anna Cardwell — who is now 20 and married with a child — believed her mom earlier today that she was not dating the man who molested her. But we're told Anna has now received a lot more info, and is now convinced June betrayed her by seeing McDaniel again.
Anna wants it known she's the victim because it makes what her mom is doing all the more egregious. We're told Anna feels her relationship with her mom has been destroyed, and the only way June can see her granddaughter is if McDaniel is nowhere to be seen.
For casual fans of the show, Anna was 17 and pregnant during the show's first season. Earlier this year, she married a man who she began dating after she became a mother at 18.
The Onion, the Nostradamus of the news cycle, partially called the inevitable tragic end to Honey Boo Boo two years ago.
But even The Onion didn't guess that it would end this badly.
