U.S. reality Tv star June Shannon has confessed two of her daughters were products of a romance with a convicted sex offender.
The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star has jeopardised the show's future following reports linking her to sex offender Mark MCDaniel, who her daughter Anna claims molested her when she was a child.
And now, in a sensational Tv interview which will air in America on Thursday evening (13Nov14), Shannon reveals Michael Anthony Ford, who was featured on a 2005 episode of reality Tv drama To Catch a Predator, fathered two of her kids, Jessica, 17, and Lauryn, 14.
Opening up about the romance during a chat with Entertainment Tonight, she says, "It's about getting the truth out there. I have nothing to hide, I have nothing to lose."
Shannon also insists there is no romance between her and MCDaniel, who was released from prison in March (14), revealing she only agreed to meet him at the request of her daughter Lauryn, who thought he was her dad.
She adds, "It was a conversation that she wanted her answers: what happened, why did he leave, you know, if he was her real father. He admitted to her, no. I had already told her that but, you know, she wanted to hear from both sides of the story."
Executives at TLC, who aired Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, announced they had cancelled the series on 24 October (14) amid the reports suggesting Shannon was dating MCDaniel after splitting from her husband Mike Thompson.
