In a Facebook video on October 24, June staunchly denied having had any contact with convicted pedophile McDaniel, 53, since his March 2014 release from prison. "I have not seen that person in 10 years and don't want to see that person," she told fans. But photos soon surfaced of June house-hunting with McDaniel AND her daughters Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, 9, and Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, 14.

Once she was caught in a huge lie, June told Dr. Phil McGraw in a sit-down interview on November 17 that she saw McDaniel only two times since his prison release: once by coincidence around their Georgia hometown, and another while house hunting so her daughter Pumpkin could speak to the man who helped raise her as a child. However, in an explosive interview with The National ENQUIRER, June's former brother-in-law, Lee "Uncle Poodle" Thompson, 31, revealed that the mother of four daughters went on a sexy getaway vacation with McDaniel— and other family members, including daughter Alana— to Cherokee, North Carolina in September. He provided The ENQUIRER with tell-tale photos from the trip.

June swears that the infamous photo of her and McDaniel in bed was a total fake. However, in his interview with Dr. Phil, Uncle Poodle claimed it was taken in the hotel bed the two shared during a steamy sex session in North Carolina.

June claims Alana— who is just one year older than Anna when she was repeatedly molested by McDaniel— only had one brief interaction with the convicted felon during their house hunting venture. "He said, 'hey' to her and that was it," she told Dr. Phil. But Poodle claims he witnessed McDaniel sleeping in bed with Alana during their secret North Carolina trip. "And June yes, they were both in the bed," he told Dr. Phil on November 18. "June was in the middle and Mark was behind June."

While chatting with Dr. Phil, June said she "didn't know Anna's side of the story until two-and-a-half years ago," when Radar revealed she bribed her then-pregnant daughter to move home for the family's reality show. However, in an interview with Dr. Drew Pinsky, Anna said she told her mother about the horrific abuse soon after it occurred in 2002, and June refused to accept her horror story. "After I told her this happened, she didn't believe me, and she was like, 'I'm done talking about this now, I'm done talking about this,'" the now 20-year-old mother of Kaitlyn, 2, alleged. Also, court records detailing the horrific crimes in Georgia's Henry County, where McDaniel was first indicted, have been available to the public since 2003.

The nerve! June told Dr. Phil that Anna lived in her grandmother Sandra Hale's home for many years during her childhood because the widow didn't want to live alone after her husband died. However, Hale says she rescued her 8-year-old granddaughter from a horrific situation. "I took her to the police station and filed the charges on her behalf because she was a minor," she said. "I was looking out for her best interests and I wasn't going to let this go away."

Woops! In the Dr. Phil interview, June said her daughter Pumpkin only spent ten minutes with McDaniel "to ask why he left when she was 5 years old." (Though June claims incarcerated child predator Michael Anthony Ford is Pumpkin's father, McDaniel helped raise the little girl before he was locked up in 2004.) However, when Pumpkin spoke to Dr. Phil just moments later, she said she spent a full hour talking to McDaniel. "There were a lot of questions," the 14-year-old said. "I wanted closure."

Though it seems obvious that TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo because of June's ties to the child molester, she told Dr. Phil the network axed the popular series because "the kids weren't into it anymore." "I think that had a big part in the decision," she said. But TLC implied there was a far graver situation at hand. "Supporting the health and welfare of these remarkable children is our only priority," the network said in a statement immediately following the cancelation. "TLC is faithfully committed to the children's ongoing comfort and well-being." Uncle Poodle said there was no question why the successful show was shut down. "They saw the photo, and that was it," he told Dr. Phil.
