Mama June: Sugar Bear has moved back into the family home
UPI News Service, 12/02/2014
June "Mama June" Shannon says she and her estranged partner Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson are attempting to reconcile.
The matriarch from the recently canceled "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" told TMZ she is no longer in contact with Mark McDaniel, the ex-boyfriend and convicted child molester she started seeing again after he was released from prison last summer.
Although Shannon said Thompson has returned to the family home, she admitted they don't consider themselves "back together" and it will "take a lot of work" to regain his trust.
"I'm human, I made mistakes and done wrong, but no one is perfect," she told the celebrity news website.
TLC canceled the family's reality show after photos of Shannon and McDaniel were published online, and McDaniel's criminal past was revealed. Shannon's 20-year-old daughter Anna "Chickadee" Cardwell, who alleged McDaniel sexually abused her when she was 8, recently said she felt betrayed when her mother gave McDaniel another chance and exposed her younger daughters to the sex offender.
The TV series focused on the family of 9-year-old beauty pageant contestant Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson.
