The twisted tale of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” star June Shannon’s relationship with a convicted sex offender just keeps getting worse.
In a new report, complete with photos, published by the National Enquirer, Lee “Uncle Poodle” Thompson, who appeared on the show with his family, is claiming Shannon— aka Mama June— let her daughter Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson snuggle in the same bed as Mark McDaniel, who went to jail for 10 years after he molested Shannon’s older daughter when she was a child.
Uncle Poodle shared details from a group trip he went on with his fiancé, Shannon, McDaniel and Honey Boo Boo. He said while in Cherokee, North Carolina, Mama June introduced McDaniel as her “gay friend,” and let Honey Boo Boo hop into the bed she and McDaniel were sharing.
“When I woke up in the morning Alana was fast asleep crammed in bed with June and Mark!” Uncle Poodle told The Enquirer. “It looked like they were cuddling!”
Thompson added that even though Shannon claimed McDaniel was gay, he saw the two kissing while on the vacation and at one point they disappeared together for several hours.
Upon Shannon’s return he added “She went into graphic detail about Mark’s stamina and privates, and she was doing it right in front of Alana!”
Uncle Poodle fumed, “June needs to wake up and put her kids’ safety before her own sexual needs!”
Thompson has denied reports that he is hoping to land his own reality show now that TLC has given “Honey Boo Boo” the boot. He has also spoken out against Shannon and her daughter Lauryn’s claims that he was selling stories to the media.
Various outlets have also reported that Thompson planned to seek custody of Honey Boo Boo. On Tuesday, he replied to a Twitter user who asked if he was trying to get custody of the beauty pageant star with a simple “no.”
Honey Boo Boo and her family rose to fame on TLC’s “Toddlers and Tiaras” and their spinoff series premiered in August 2012. In recent months the show had seen rating decline and TLC promptly canceled the show after photo surfaced of Mama June with McDaniel.
