Reality TV fans may love the bubbly Honey Boo Boo, but the new man in her mom's life? Not so much.

The future of the hit TLC show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is now in question following a TMZ.com report that series matriarch Mama June (real name: June Shannon) is dating a convicted sex offender.

The site reports that Mama June, who separated from Sugar Bear in September, has been dating Mark McDaniel for several months. McDaniel was convicted of aggravated child molestation in 2004 — during which time June was allegedly seeing him. Prosecutors alleged that he forced oral sex on an 8-year-old who is related to June, according to TMZ.

McDaniel served 10 years behind bars and was released this past March. He is now a registered sex offender in the state of Georgia.
