IN A DAYTIME TELEVISION EXCLUSIVE, DR. PHIL SITS DOWN WITH “MAMA JUNE” SHANNON TO ADDRESS THE SCANDAL THAT HAS ROCKED HER FAMILY AND ASKS THE HARD-HITTING QUESTIONS THAT ONLY HE CAN ASK, AIRING MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17
“I owe it to the fans to say my side of the story. I’m not a perfect parent, I made a mistake. It’s time to move on.”
(Hollywood, CA – November 12, 2014) – DR. PHIL, television’s #1-rated syndicated daytime talk show, continues its 13th season with ripped-from-the-headlines episodes with the daytime television exclusive interview with “Mama June” Shannon, one of the stars of the now cancelled reality series “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” who sits down with Dr. Phil to answer hard questions about the scandal that has rocked her entire family. The episode airs Monday, November 17 (check local listings).
In the wide-ranging interview, Mama June denies rekindling a relationship with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel, the man who allegedly sexually assaulted her daughter Anna when she was 8. This in spite of the fact that recent pictures of her and McDaniel have surfaced. When asked about the photos by Dr. Phil, Shannon claims at least one of the photos were [sic] photo shopped. She also answers Dr. Phil’s tough questions about her ties to McDaniel, and why she recently allowed Pumpkin to have contact with him.
Shannon also reveals the current status of her relationship with ex-boyfriend Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson, stating, “He cheated, he hurt me a lot. I am not in love with him.” In addition, Dr. Phil gets her thoughts about the state opening an investigation checking on her three youngest children and asks why she thinks TLC cancelled her show after so many hit seasons on the air. Shannon is later joined by “Sugar Bear” and daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon to discuss how they feel about the recent events that have shaken their family.
