The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo sex offender scandal continues to get ickier by the day.
In an interview that's scheduled to air on Entertainment Tonight Thursday, matriarchMama June admits that convicted sex offender Michael Anthony Ford — who was featured on a 2005 episode of To Catch a Predator — is the father of two of her daughters.
"It's about getting the truth out there," June tells ET. "I have nothing to hide, I have nothing to lose."
Last month, June (whose real name is June Shannon) came under fire after reports circulated that she had rekindled her relationship with a different sex offender, Mark McDaniel, who her daughter Anna claims molested her when she was a child. ("I've told Anna not to bring up the past again," June says.)
TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo amid the reports.
Now, June is coming forward to say that Ford is the father of her daughters Jessica, 17, and Lauryn (a.k.a. "Pumpkin"), 14. Previously, Pumpkin had said she believed McDaniel was her father. In the interview with ET, June admits that one of the occasions she saw McDaniel since his release from prison in March was at an arranged meeting requested by Pumpkin. "It was a conversation that she wanted her answers: what happened, why did he leave, you know, if he was her real father," June says. "He admitted to her, no. I had already told her that but, you know, she wanted to hear from both sides of the story."
