Reality TV is getting too real. After TMZ broke the news that Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch Mama June was dating convicted child molester Mark McDaniel, Anna Shannon Cardwell, Mama June's eldest daughter (known as "Chickadee"), stepped forward as a victim of McDaniel's abuse. (McDaniels and Mama June were also dating in 2002, at the time of the reported molestation; Cardwell was 8 years old.) "I believe she is seeing him and hanging around him," Cardwell said in an interview with Radar Online. "I’m hurt. I think me and Mama’s relationship may well be over."
