In a recent interview, Honey Boo Boo’s sister Anna Shannon Cardwell has opened up about the alleged incidents that happened as a child.
The reality star has been in the center of ongoing controversy after she said she was molested as a child by her mother’s then-boyfriend Mark McDaniel.
“Mama can be very selfish,” Anna “Chickadee” told E! News during a one to one interview with Catt Sadler.
“She ain’t tell me she love me in a long time.”
Anna Shannon Cardwell then spoke: “You’re 8 years old, you don’t know. To me, it was kinda like, oh, get off me, it hurts. Stay off and leave me alone. And I’d just go to sleep and cry.”
As for June Shannon’s relationship with Mark McDaniel, Anna Chickadee said: “She’s always loved him.”
The 20-year-old added: “She’s using Sugar Bear to cover her ass.”

Anna Chickadee Shannon told E! News that there are trust funds for all the girls, noting that $30,000 was set aside from show earnings, and claimed that she called the bank and was told there was only $17.90 in the account.
“I have a feeling Mama used that money to buy a car or buy him what he wanted,” Anna Shannon Cardwell told E! News.
June Shannon denies these claims: “Not true. I have never brought a car for him and all her money is there, beside the money I have given her to live on – $400 every month and pay her $475 each month for cell phone bills for the last two years. That’s the only money I have taken out of there.”
Mama June has also denied reports that she and her ex Mark McDaniel, who served 10 years in prison for a 2004 aggravated child molestation conviction, were back together.
Honey Boo Boo’s big sister Anna “Chickadee” got engaged in “redneck style”.
Anna Shannon’s boyfriend, Michael, managed to ask her in a way that was not only unique and unforgettable, but also extremely personal and romantic.
The romantic moment came after Michael, Anna’s boyfriend of one year, secretly asked her parents for her hand in marriage.
Michael served up one steaming hot “redneck proposal” complete with a “Marry Me?” (spelled in pepperoni) pizza and group of dancing hillbillies.
The proposal, which took place on New Year’s Eve, didn’t come as a surprise to the entire family.

“Her and Kaitlyn… I love them with all my heart,” Michael said, referring to Anna and her one-year-old daughter.
“I wouldn’t trade them for nothing.”
When it came time for the life-changing moment, Honey Boo Boo’s family and all their friends danced for the soon-to-be-married sister, creating a path for Michael and Kaitlyn so they could walk down to Anna.
Michael then got down on one knee and opened the pizza box.
“Will you marry me, Anna?” Michael said.
“I think I’m gonna cry” Anna said, which was followed by a “yes”.
Anna “Chickadee” smooched her new fiancé as he slipped the engagement ring on her finger.
Keeping up with the “redneck proposal” theme, Michael even managed to snag camouflage bling.
