After repeatedly denying any relationship with Mark McDaniel since his release from prison in March after he was convicted of molesting her daughter when she was eight years old, “Mama June” Shannon has admitted to having contact with McDaniel, but said she realizes she “made mistakes and done wrong.”

From TMZ:

She tells us she did see McDaniel after he was released from prison in March … something she lied about after we broke the story. But now she says, “I’m human, I made mistakes and done wrong, but no one is perfect.”

In the wake of the scandal, TLC canceled the family’s show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” Shannon said Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson is back living at home and the two are trying to repair their relationship after they split earlier this year.
