Mama June answers Dr. Phil’s questions about having brought her kids around a convicted child molester.
Dr. Phil goes over Mama June’s relationship history: “So, one, two, three, four relationships you’ve had, two of them have been convicted of child molestation charges; all four of them have been in jail. Who are you turning down?”
How does Mama June explain a picture that shows her in bed with McDaniel?
“An average child molester will have anywhere between 40 and 75 victims in their life.”
“One thing I know for sure is that people make mistakes. The other thing I know for sure is that it’s the cover up — and not the mistake — that creates the biggest problem.”
Tune in to hear what Mama June’s ex, “Sugar Bear” Thompson, and her daughter, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Thompson, have to say about the scandal that has rocked their family.
