HOLLYWOOD, California — TLC cancelled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo last month after one of the star’s relationship with a sex offender came to light.

Now that star, matriarch Mama June Shannon, has revealed a relationship with another sex offender.

Shannon told Entertainment Tonight she had seen convicted child molester Mark McDaniel twice since he was released from prison in March.

The first time she called a ‘coincidence’ but the second time she said was planned in order to give her 14 year old daughter Pumpkin closure because she grew up believing McDaniel was her father and he in fact is not.

“Since two months to almost six years, she knew nobody but him,” Shannon told ET. “She was starting to resent Anna and she was starting to ask me questions.”

Anna is Shannon’s oldest daughter and says McDaniel molested her as a child.

In the interview Shannon then said that Pumpkin’s actual biological father is a man named Michael Anthony Ford. Ford is also a convicted sex offender who was caught on camera during a sting show on national television during NBC’s To Catch a Predator in 2005.

Shannon also said Ford is the father of her other daughter Jessica.

    I have never watched one episode of Mama June or any TV show which would feature a child named Honey Boo Boo! For those of you who have, or were even interested enough to watch the clip above (I didn’t, comment only), you and your entertainment values are low, Jerry Springer low, which is why the Kardashians are even celebs! All three shows that I just spoke of, are talentless! Like you, Amerika!
