The accusations continue in the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo scandal as family member Lee “Uncle Poodle” Thompson is now saying that “Mama” June Shannon allowed Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson to sleep in bed with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel.
The initial bombshell that broke this story and almost instantly resulted in the cancellation of the popular TLC show featured a picture of June in bed with Mark in a hotel room. Mark was previously convicted of molesting June’s daughter Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell and spent nearly a decade behind bars for his crimes.
According to Uncle Poodle, this photo came during a vacation some of the family members took in September. They visited Cherokee, North Carolina to do a little sightseeing and gambling at the area’s casino. Now Poodle says that during that trip, June allowed Alana to sleep in the same hotel bed with herself and McDaniel.
Poodle told The National Enquirer:
“I’m disgusted with June for not protecting Alana from Mark! This guy can’t be trusted. He needs to be locked up and have the key thrown away.”
Poodle, June, Alana, Mark and Poodle’s now husband Alan all stayed in the same hotel room with two queen-sized beds. Poodle and Alan took one bed, June and Mark had the other while Alana bunked on the floor.
“But when I woke up in the morning, Alana was fast asleep crammed in bed with June and Mark! It looked like they were cuddling!”
Poodle has been accused of fabricating the stories and selling out his family by releasing the photos from the trip and outing June’s reconnection with McDaniel. A recent story via TMZ indicated that he was pitching for his own show, a story Poodle disregarded via Facebook.
“To the TMZ post that features me, well funny thing is, I never said anything about NYC or half that sh*t they added, I however said, If I were offered my own show that I wouldn’t say no, and Id like the girls to stay involved as I’d not be who I am today without them, especially Alana, how does everyone think I got this dang nickname! The rest of their post was added by them to twist a story to try and make it dramatic and sh*t.”
June has been seen out recently with Alana and her father Sugar Bear as they appear to be putting up a public front of unity following the show’s demise.
