Honey Boo Boo's Sister Anna Cardwell Tells ET: 'He's a Child Molester, Mama'

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star Anna Marie "Chickadee" Cardwell is speaking exclusively to ET about her claims that she was molested by Mark McDaniel, a convicted sex offender, who's allegedly now romantically involved again with her mother, "Mama June" Shannon.

Cardwell, now 20, says McDaniel molested her at age 8, when he was dating her mother.

Mama June has denied that she is currently dating McDaniel, and claims that she has not seen him since he got out of jail in March after serving a 10-year sentence for aggravated child molestation.

Cardwell, however, clearly doesn't believe the denials. "She never told me she believes me," Cardwell tells ET. "She never said, 'Hey Anna, I'm sorry for not believing you and I still don't believe you to this day.'"

"It's Mama's fault," she says. "She has to live with it. She has brung the past back and now she can't get it away. I'm mad. I'm upset. I feel betrayed. I feel very hurt. That's the main thing that I am -- I feel very hurt that Mama let him come around."

Cardwell says she even pleaded with her mother to stay away from McDaniel for the sake of her three younger sisters -- Jessica "Chubbs" Shannon, 18; Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, 14; and Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, 9.

"It's like she's happy," she says about Mama June's state of mind. "She's smiling and giggling when he's around. You know, he's a child molester, Mama. He did this to me. Why would you let him come around the girls knowing what he did? And reportedly done it to another girl? And Mama was like, 'Oh, he never done it to another girl.'"

"Mama's not supposed to be around him!" she added. "She just knows! And she let him get around Lana and Pumpkin!"

TLC canceled the hit series Friday following the allegations of a rekindled relationship between Mama June and McDaniel.

"TLC is faithfully committed to the children's ongoing comfort and well-being," the cable network said in a statement.

Mama June reacted to the news with a now deleted Facebook video, again denying the relationship.

"I have not seen that person in 10 years, and do not seem to want to see that person," she said.
