Mark McDaniel, June Shannon's child molester boyfriend and the center of major controversy, can count on his daughter-in-law in his corner if nothing else.

To hear her tell it, just because he molested a little girl years ago - including June's daughter Anna Shannon - doesn't mean that he's a bad person.

Tell that to Anna and/or Sugar Bear and/or the State of Georgia.

Peaches McDaniel tried defending her father-in-law on Facebook, adding in a defiant tone, "Peoples [sic] past are completely irrelevant to the present."

"if you are going to judge someone by their past, look at your own first," Peaches adds. "Michaels [sic] dad is an amazing man, as well an amazing father."

McDaniel is a registered sex offender after serving 10 years in prison for allegedly (or not allegedly, actually) one of June's daughters to have oral sex with him.

June and husband Sugar Bear recently called it quits, after which she started dating McDaniel, who was her boyfriend from before he went to prison.

For molesting one of her daughters. Did we mention that part?

Earlier this week, we learned that TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo as a result of some seriously unsettling conduct from one of the show's stars, June Shannon.

Now it seems Shannon may lose more than just her reality TV fame, as a spokesperson for child protective services in June's home state of Georgia says that cases like June's generally result in at least temporary loss of custody.

"When there are children who are not able to protect themselves, that are in daily contact or living with sex offenders," says CPS director Susan Boatwright. "Someone would go out there and assess the situation to see whether the children can stay there or not."

In other words, Mama June can likely expect a visit from the state in the very near future.

And considering Mark McDaniel - the sex offender in question - is the same man who molested June's daughter Anna Shannon when she was 8 years old, we're guessing authorities won't be okay with 9-year-old Alana sharing a roof with McDaniel.

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

Shannon initially denied the reports, but TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo after uncovering evidence that Shannon had, in fact, been spending time with McDaniel.

The scandal has only worsened over the weekend, as June's daughter Anna Shannon came forward as the victim of McDaniel's abuse.

Now, in perhaps the most shocking development thus far, TMZ has obtained photos of McDaniel with Alana Thompson - June's 9-year-old daughter who is better known publicly as Honey Boo Boo.

Anna Marie Cardwell (nee Shannon) confirms she was abused as a child by Mark McDaniel, the convicted molester who reportedly dated her mom June Shannon.

This was years before she and her family became reality stars, a stint that's now over after TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo last week.

Now 20, Anna Shannon says registered sex offender McDaniel "would try and touch me and all that stuff" when she was eight and he dated her mom.

Cardwell, who went by "Chickadee" on the show, says she doesn't know what to believe in the wake of shocking reports that June is seeing him again.

"I'm just confused," she says of the scandal that got the hit show canceled. "I'm hearing one story from Mama and another one from someone else."

The question of whether June Shannon and Mark McDaniel are still involved romantically has been hotly debated, and denied by the former on social media.

Two stars of the show Sons of Guns, Stephanie Hayden and Kris Ford, were arrested Friday in their native Louisiana for abusing a nine-year-old child.

Stephanie Hayden and Kris Ford

Parish of Livingston officials say Kris abused Stephanie's son (from a previous relationship last month) by striking the child in the lower buttocks area.

Stephanie Hayden was also taken into custody, after the boy told police that she was also present during this, although she is not charged with hitting him.

Kris Ford (full name Kristafor Ford) is accused of hitting the boy with a leather belt on the child's lower, right thigh, leaving a large bruise in the impacted area.

Ford was arrested late Friday afternoon and charged with cruelty to a juvenile. Ford is married to Stephanie Hayden, who is the daughter of Will Hayden.

All three worked for Red Jacket Firearms, the reality TV show's focus.

Kendra Wilkinson's husband Hank Baskett has contacted the FBI to protest that his alleged mistress Ava London extorted him and tried to shake him down.

Hank claims that the transsexual model, who revealed their sexual dealings, is guilty of illegally recording and extorting him, and he wants to make her pay.

Believe Hank's legal attempt to play the victim?

Here's why you should: She was clearly behind the release of those audio tapes of Hank pleading for her not to go public and promising to "help" her.

Here's why you shouldn't: If you watch Kendra on Top online, Hank's guilty conscience is obvious and he can't even find the words to deny anything.

The two aren't mutually exclusive, of course. Her account could be entirely accurate and still tantamount to extortion if she tried to bilk him for cash.

He seems to be trying to dance around what really happened with Ava London, though, acknowledging only that he "hung out with her" that night.

What else was hanging out, though!?

Earlier today, TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo in the midst of a shocking sexual assault scandal.

Details that emerged today make it clear why the network felt they had no choice but to halt production on the popular reality show effective immediately.

On Thursday, TMZ reported that series star June Shannon is dating a convicted child molester named Mark McDaniel. 

Shannon denied any involvement with McDaniel, and her children came to her defense, claiming that June had cut off all contact with McDaniel at the time of his arrest in 2004.

Now one of those children - 20-year-old Anna Shannon - has revealed that she was the victim of McDaniel's abuse, and that she now believes her mother is romantically involved with McDaniel.

Yesterday, news that June Shannon is dating a convicted child molester stunned fans of the TLC reality series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

Today, the axe has reportedly fallen on the once-popular series.

Shannon and Sugar Bear Thompson broke up over the summer, and Shannon reportedly reconciled with ex-boyfriend Mark McDaniel shortly thereafter. 

McDaniel, it was recently revealed, was released from prison in March of this year after serving a ten-year sentence for aggravated child molestation.

Shannon and McDaniel were in a serious relationship at the time of his arrest. Sources say McDaniel's 8-year-old victim was a relative of Shannon's.

Yesterday, a TLC spokesperson said the future of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was in question in light of the revelation about June's relationship with McDaniel.

Today, the network confirmed to TMZ that it will not be back for another season.

Tori Spelling has hospitalized last weekend because she is in the throes of a nervous breakdown, according to people with close knowledge of her life.

Tori Spelling Hospitalized

As previously reported, Tori was hospitalized and quarantined (supposedly) at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A., having checked herself in there.

This prompted the obligatory Ebola questions - her rep even said that she does not have Ebola - but now sources say the whole thing was all a ruse.

A lie designed to cover up her crumbling marriage and personal life.

If you watched True Tori Season 2 Episode 1, you're familiar with how far she'll go to script what is written about her and what you see on television.

Still, these are the supposed reasons Tori is falling apart right now:
