Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell (nee Shannon) says there’s no way her mom, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, star June Shannon is getting near her kids.

Not anytime soon, at least.

The Hollywood Gossip

If you watched TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo … we sort of feel sorry for you. But you remember June taking care of Anna’s daughter Kaitlyn.

Those happy days are long gone. When the pregnant Anna Cardwell gives birth to her second baby Chickadee, her mama is persona non grata.

Cardwell tells Us that their relationship has been strained since June stepped out with that child molester Mark McDaniel. Understandably strained.

Anna adds that while she has regained some trust in the elder Shannon “a little,” it’s her husband who has the real issue with his in-law.

“If I have a newborn child, either me and Michael are going to go [visit with the baby] or she can come over here and visit,” said Cardwell.

Any alone time is simply not gonna happen at this point.

Confirming her eldest daughter’s pregnancy in an April 25 Instagram post, June Shannon couldn’t help but voice her concern about the couple.

“I’m not going to sugarcoat it: I’m nervous for them, as I know they are struggling with just them and Kaitlyn right now,” June confessed.

“Adding another one is going to be hard,” Shannon adds.

“They are in a different state for me to help her out like I was able to help a lot with Kaitlyn, but going to try to be [as] supportive as possible.”

Cardwell also takes issue with Shannon’s claims.

“Every family struggles with all this stuff every single day. [Kaitlyn] gets what she wants, she eats, has clothes on her, she’s clean,” Anna says.

“This same kid is going to be the same way.”

As for her relationship with her husband?

“We were arguing a lot … then all of a sudden we started doing fine for a good two or three months, and we decided to try again [to get pregnant].”

“I’m glad,” she says, noting that this is all she ever wanted … seriously: “I begged and begged and begged for a kid and I finally got [pregnant].”

Thank goodness. As for reports that Chickadee wants June Shannon’s money from TLC (which she’s apparently still getting), she had no comment.
