Ever since the world first learned that June Shannon is dating convicted child molester Mark McDaniel, it's been widely assumed that Shannon's youngest daughter would be removed from her care one way or another.

Shannon is in danger of losing custody of her three youngest children.

But even if the current investigation by the state of Georgia finds that "Mama June" is a fit mother, surely Sugar Bear Thompson - father of 9-year-old Alana - will do everything in his power to gain full custody, right?

Not necessarily. Sources close to Sugar Bear tell TMZ that as of right now, he has no plans to fight for custody of Alana (better known to fans as Honey Boo Boo).

Sugar Bear apparently believes he would not be able to provide a suitable home for Honey Boo Boo as he has been living with friends ever since he and Shannon broke up last month.

Well, at least Victoria's Secret didn't list any outfits under a Fat Girls section of its catalog...

But the lingerie company is still in major trouble today after coming out with advertisements that depict models who supposedly possess the “perfect body.”

Granted, the campaign is really in support of an ideal bra “body,” considering how the photo below touts a “perfect comfort demi push-up."

But it's not hard to see how critics could interpret this image as implying that the women featured in it have the ideal figure... and they've let their feelings on that message be felt via social media.

Perfect Body Campaign Photo

“What gives Victoria's Secret the right to say what a "perfect" body is?? Stop body shaming!!” wrote one Twitter user, while a 22-year old named Frances Black has started a petition at Change.org.

Last week, news broke that June Shannon is dating a convicted child molester named Mark McDaniel.

Since then, there have been numerous stunning revelations about the situation, each more sad and shocking than the last.

First we learned that June's daughter Anna Shannon was McDaniel's victim. Then it was revealed that another daughter, Lauryn Shannon, was forced to watch the attacks.

Now, for the first time, Anna is speaking publicly about her mother's baffling decision to welcome McDaniel back into her life, and the many ways in which the relationship has torn her family apart.

"It's like she's happy," Anna says of her mother in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. "She's smiling and giggling when he's around."

In the past, when racy photos of Jennette McCurdy were posted online, she was quick to call out the culprit, or at least strongly imply that she didn't leak them.

The actress may or may not have been a victim of The Fappening - there were photos that allegedly depicted her nude, but they were never verified.

Anyway, that's not what we're talking about here:

Prior to that scandal, shots of McCurdy posing seductively in lingerie (see gallery below) were posted on various photo-sharing sites across the Internet.

The 22-year-old McCurdy blamed Andre Drummond - her NBA player ex-boyfriend, whom she claimed was still bitter about their breakup, for the leak.

Today, however, a new naked photo of Jennette surfaced online and if we had to point a finger, we'd guess that the person responsible is none other than McCurdy herself.

The photo is posed, tasteful, and, well... we hate to sound cynical, but McCurdy's career isn't exactly on fire at the moment, and every bit of free publicity helps.

Kendra Wilkinson may or may not take Hank Baskett back even after his shady dalliances with a transsexual model, but it's not going to be easy for him.

A new clip from Friday Kendra on Top Season 3 Episode 8 makes it quite clear that he has a lot of work to do, not to mention serious issues with communication ...

Kendra grills her husband about his alleged infidelity with Ava London while lamenting feeling "trapped." It's as awkward as it is most likely scripted.

Hank basically admits messing around with London, though. Why would Hank go to the FBI claiming extortion if he hadn't? Still, he can't tell Wilkinson.

It's like he literally can't force the words out of his own mouth. Then again, if we had a fetish like Baskett apparently does, it might be hard for us, as well.

The conversation occurs in his apartment, which he pretended to move into after she supposedly kicked him out of their home in Calabasas, Calif.

As more details become available about the the sexual abuse that landed Mark McDaniel behind bars, it becomes more and more astonishing not only that June Shannon would allow this man back into her life, but that McDaniel was ever allowed out of prison in the first place.

Last week, June's daughter Anna Shannon came forward as McDaniels' victim - revealing that her mother's then-boyfriend had repeatedly assaulted her when she was just 8 years old. 

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Cast Members

Yesterday, we learned that McDaniel had threatened to kill Shannon if she ever told anyone about his crimes.

Despite these threats, the heroic young girl eventually told her teachers about her horrifying home life, which led to McDaniel's arrest.

Just when it seemed that McDaniel's crimes couldn't be any more revolting, however, new information uncovered today reveals that Anna was not the sole victim of McDaniel's abuse.

Last week, TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo following a series of stunning and sickening revelations.

First, TMZ reported that series star June Shannon was dating a convicted child molester named Mark McDaniel. 

Later, we learned that McDaniel's victim was Anna Shannon - June's eldest daughter who was just eight years old at the time.

Then, in perhaps the most shocking development in this story thus far, photos emerged that showed McDaniel with Honey Boo Boo - Shannon's 9-year-old daughter who currently lives with her in Georgia. 

More details have now emerged regarding McDaniel's horrific crimes and it's more astonishing than ever that June Shannon would welcome this man back into her life and allow him to spend time with her young children.

The star of the newly-canceled TLC reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo may have been even more rife with scandal than originally believed.

Executives axed the show amid reports of matriarch June “Mama June” Shannon dating her ex-boyfriend Mark McDaniel, a convicted child molester.

June Shannon and Mark McDaniel dated before his 10-year prison sentence, and he even molested one of June's daughter's prior to being locked up.

McDaniel is not the first sex offender Shannon has been linked to, though.

The father of Shannon’s daughter Jessica, Michael Anthony Ford, was arrested in 2005 and later convicted for the sexual exploitation of a child over the Internet.

According to Georgia Department of Corrections, he was sentenced to a maximum of four years behind bars and 10 years of probation for the criminal offense.

He is still behind bars on a separate charge of child abandonment.

The fathers of Shannon’s other children, including estranged husband David Michael “Sugar Bear” Thompson, also have criminal records, albeit not for sex crimes.

Even though Teresa Giudice is still fighting her prison sentence, it seems she's gradually coming to terms with the fact that she'll soon be locked up.

Teresa was sentenced to 15 months, as a result of a plea deal, which means she can't contest her conviction (though she's certainly been trying).  

She can, however, continue to act like a delusional diva and pay an army of lawyers to make the experience as comfortable and painless as possible.

First, Teresa tried to land a spot in the prison that inspired Orange is the New Black (seriously), now she's asked her legal team to fight for her right to fake hair: 

"Teresa has had her attorney inquire about keeping the hair extensions," a source tells Radar Online. "She will need to take out her extensions before beginning her prison sentence."

As you've probably heard, NFL running back Ray Rice was cut from the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the league after viciously assaulting his wife, Janay Palmer.

Video of Rice knocking Palmer out in the elevator of an Atlantic City hotel and casino surfaced online back in September, sparking outrage and leading to a national conversation about the link between professional athletes and domestic violence.

The Rice incident quickly became one of the biggest stories of 2014, so naturally - as with most major scandals - it's inspired some truly tasteless Halloween costumes. 

As much as Rice might be deserving of public mockery for his deplorable actions, the costumes generally serve to make light of the incident and cause the victim to become part of the joke. 

Rice and Palmer have yet to comment on the costume controversy publicly but an insider tells TMZ that the couple is taking the high road:
