The national reign of terror is over! TLC has finally pulled the plug on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo after allegations arose that Mama June has been dating a convicted child molester who sexually abused one of her relatives.
TMZ broke the story yesterday that showed June had been secretly dating Mark McDaniel, who just recently got out of prison after serving 10 years for forcing oral sex on an 8-year-old June is reportedly related to.
We’ve learned June has denied she’s seeing McDaniel, despite a photo we posted showing the 2 of them at a small party in a hotel room. TLC clearly did not believe her and cancelled the show because they felt she was putting her children at risk.
TLC has shot an entire new season of episodes but will not air them. Although the show has fallen off its ratings high, we’re told it’s still very profitable, so TLC is taking a financial hit.
But the network is not turning its back on the kids, telling us, “Supporting the health and welfare of these remarkable children is our only priority. TLC is faithfully committed to the children’s ongoing comfort and well-being.” Our sources say the network will pay for tutors and counselors for the kids.
Mama June continues to deny that she is dating McDaniel, but the pics posted online suggest otherwise.
