Earlier this week, we learned that TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo as a result of some seriously unsettling conduct from one of the show’s stars, June Shannon.
Now it seems Shannon may lose more than just her reality TV fame, as a spokesperson for child protective services in June’s home state of Georgia says that cases like June’s generally result in at least temporary loss of custody.
“When there are children who are not able to protect themselves, that are in daily contact or living with sex offenders,” says CPS director Susan Boatwright. “Someone would go out there and assess the situation to see whether the children can stay there or not.”
In other words, Mama June can likely expect a visit from the state in the very near future.
And considering Mark McDaniel – the sex offender in question – is the same man who molested June’s daughter Anna Shannon when she was 8 years old, we’re guessing authorities won’t be okay with 9-year-old Alana sharing a roof with McDaniel.
In case you missed it, the whole scandal began when it was revealed that Shannon is dating McDaniel, despite the fact that he just completed a 10-year prison sentence for molesting one of her daughters.
June has denied that she’s in a relationship with McDaniel, but evidence to the contrary seems to surface every day, including dozens of photos of the two of them together.
