Anna Pumpkin Molester Father

Mama June’s confession is about restoring what she deems is the truth, after what her daughter revealed to the world. Anna believes her molester is Pumpkin’s father. Anna Cardwell aka Chickadee appeared on Monday’s episode of Dr. Drew on Call on HLN where she dropped a major bombshell.

During the interview, Anna Cardwell stated that her sister, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, might have been fathered by June “Mama June” Shannon‘s child molester boyfriend Mark McDaniel.

McDaniel was recently released after spending 10 years behind bars for sexually assaulting Anna when she was 8 years old. McDaniel abused Anna while Pumpkin, who was about 3 years old, slept next to her.

Anna Cardwell, who is now 20 and is married to Michael Cardwell, told Dr. Drew that immediately after his release in March, McDaniel contacted Mama June, so he could surprise Pumpkin with the major revelation.

Cardwell indirectly confirmed that Mama June is in a relationship with the man who molested her daughter. The star of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, who has a two-year-old daughter named Kaitlyn, said:

“That was supposed to be her so-called father or whatever it is.Out of all the kids we have, Mama does not know who Pumpkin’s daddy is. And Pumpkin thinks it’s Mark, which kind of hurts my feelings, because Mama is making her believe that someone who did that to me is her father.”

Anna further shared that her already fragile relationship with Pumpkin has reached to the point of no return. The 20-year-old explained:

“Now Pumpkin hates me for it… I don’t really care. Me and Pumpkin have never been that close… Now with her cussing me out, [saying ] “screw you” “F you”… I’m just done with it.”

Anna Cardwell told the host that Mama June never believed her, when she told her that the man of her dreams was a child molester. Cardwell confessed:

“Mama didn’t believe me for a while.Why would you do that to me? And I would say, ‘Mama, he did it, I can’t take the past back.'”

But she is talking to her mother and they are trying to work things out. Pumpkin has defended her mother’s romance via social networking sites. Other family members including Honey Boo Boo’s grandmother and uncle have slammed Mama June.

The SpreadIt has previously reported on the fact that Honey Boo Boo‘s grandmother, Sandra Hale, alerted Georgia Child and Family Services.

It is being speculated that Mama June, who has three young daughters, is hoping to buy a house with the child molester. And according to Uncle Poodle, whose real name is Lee Thompson, June slept on the same bed as Honey Boo Boo and the child molester while on vacation.

Do you believe Anna is right and her molester is Pumpkin’s father?


June “Mama June” Shannon has dropped her own bombshell in a new interview with ET’s Brooke Anderson that started airing on Thursday. June says she wants to put her side of the story out and clear her name.

According to the reality TV star, Pumpkin’s biological father’s name is Michael Anthony Ford, a convicted sex offender who spent time in prison.

Here are the main takeaways from the Mama June confession interview.

1- Pumpkin’s biological father, Michael Anthony Ford, is also Jessica’s dad. Jessica is 18 years old and Ford got caught on To Catch a Predator messing around with minors. June revealed:

“Jessica and Pumpkin have the same dad, but Jessica’s dad has had nothing to do with her over the years. So, why the hell would I open up that can of worms until today? I lied to my family and told them it was somebody else.”

2- Honey Boo Boo is not in danger, she says. The 35-year-old mother explains:

“He never really talked to her,” Shannon claims, saying that the only time Alana was around McDaniel was when “twelve other people [were] there too.”

3- June understands why the country did not like some of her recent moves: She states:

“I understand that…and honestly it’s not like I’m seeing him everyday, I promise…I wanted to be able to give one of my other daughters closure and now Pumpkin is happy, that piece of our life is over.”

4- In Mama June’s confession, she says that all she wanted to do was to help her daughter Pumpkin. She opens up about the reasons that pushed her to make contact with her daughter, Anna’s molester, Mark McDaniel. She shares:

“I was sitting right there with twelve other people. It was a conversation that she wanted her answers: what happened, why did he leave, you know, if he was her real father. He admitted to her, no. I had already told her that but, you know, she wanted to hear from both sides of the story.”

    This is one complicated story. Hoping Honey Boo Boo does not get caught in all of it.

  2. Doris says:

    I think the woman is nuts.

  3. Jane says:

    I think that she is far to twisted to raise children.

  4. Nanu21 says:

    Sounds like a big mess so maybe all the cameras/reporters need to step away letting this female get her life and her kids back on track. Is June that desperate for a male in her life and what happened to Sugar Bear? Honey BooBoo is a rather large little girl.
