If this is your first week learning of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting or its star Josh Duggar, you are not off to a great start. Previously troubled by Honey Boo-Boo, the network has officially pulled the reality series from its lineup, following Duggar’s admission of incestuous molestation near of a decade ago.
The Internet was put in a state of shock this week, as it was revealed that Mama June of TLC's reality show 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' has been dating her ex, Mark McDaniel, a convicted felon who spent 10 years in jail for forcibly molesting an 8-year-old girl.
As hard as you've worked to ignore 'Honey Boo Boo' and the rest of the Shannon clan from their ubiquitous TLC reality series in recent years, the network has made it that much easier, and for good reason. The notoriously reality-skewing network has officially canceled 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' altogether, following troubling reports that “Mama June” Shannon had resumed a relationship with a convicted child molester.
Say what you want about 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' and its subject family, but they clearly all adore and appreciate one another. Case in point? The wedding of Mama June and Sugar Bear on the season finale, which brought many a tear to an eye, both redneck and white collar alike.
