Anna Shannon: Daughter of June Shannon Comes Forward as Mark McDaniel’s Sexual Assault Victim

Earlier today, TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo in the midst of a shocking sexual assault scandal.

Details that emerged today make it clear why the network felt they had no choice but to halt production on the popular reality show effective immediately.

On Thursday, TMZ reported that series star June Shannon is dating a convicted child molester named Mark McDaniel. 

Shannon denied any involvement with McDaniel, and her children came to her defense, claiming that June had cut off all contact with McDaniel at the time of his arrest in 2004.

Now one of those children – 20-year-old Anna Shannon – has revealed that she was the victim of McDaniel’s abuse, and that she now believes her mother is romantically involved with McDaniel.

TMZ reports that Anna approached them and revealed that she wants the public to know she was molested by McDaniel so that fans of the show will realize the severity of her mother’s betrayal.

TLC has reportedly uncovered evidence that June Shannon and McDaniel have been dating, including photographs and a car that Shannon allegedly purchased for McDaniel.

Sources say Anna Shannon has been made aware of this evidence and is no longer on speaking terms with her mother. TLC is said to have offered counseling services and other assistance to Anna and her husband and child.

Tori Spelling: Hospitalized For Nervous Breakdown!

Tori Spelling has hospitalized last weekend because she is in the throes of a nervous breakdown, according to people with close knowledge of her life.

Tori Spelling Hospitalized

As previously reported, Tori was hospitalized and quarantined (supposedly) at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A., having checked herself in there.

This prompted the obligatory Ebola questions – her rep even said that she does not have Ebola – but now sources say the whole thing was all a ruse.

A lie designed to cover up her crumbling marriage and personal life.

If you watched True Tori Season 2 Episode 1, you’re familiar with how far she’ll go to script what is written about her and what you see on television.

Still, these are the supposed reasons Tori is falling apart right now:

  • Her marriage to Dean McDermott is on the rocks. Nothing new there, but they recently had an EPIC fight over a nanny whom he wanted to hire.
  • Dean, supposedly, is skipping his AA meetings and she fears he’s close to drinking again, which may lead to him cheating on Tori again.
  • Tori and Dean are financially strapped, having blown through her inheritance and believing that her best days are behind her as an actress.
  • Tori is faking illness to the point she is actually sick.

You can’t make this stuff up … except if you’re Tori.

The Ebola “quarantine” scare was never real, but Tori created such drama around it that she wasn’t sleeping or eating enough and actually fell apart.

A close friend of Spelling’s tells TMZ that an intervention may be planned soon, and that “I am hoping that shedding some light on it for all of her fans to read.”

That, the friend says, “may actually lead her to seek some change in her life … kind of like David Hasselhoff watching the drunk video of himself eating a hamburger.”

Tori and Dean Moment


Tori and Dean share a touching moment. So much to say about these two.

Maybe that sort of reality check (no pun intended for the perennial reality star) is what she needs. Here’s hoping she can pull it together for the sake of her kids.

How to Get Away with Murder Season 1 Episode 5 Recap: We Are Not Friends

How to Get Away with Murder Season 1 Episode 5 saw Annalise and her team defend a minor accused of killing his father in a case that took some intriguing turns.

Entitled “We’re Not Friends,” How to Get Away with Murder Season 1 Episode 5 got underway with what would seem like the team’s easiest case to date.

After a teen killed his father, a police officer with a penchant for beating his wife, the police turned out in force to discredit the accuser and protect the abuser.

While the killer’s motives may have justified his actions, this wasn’t the slam dunk it appeared, and Annalise had to dig deeper than you might think.

After some modest jury tampering, she was able to orchestrate a mistrial and a juvenile sentence for the boy in a case that was surprisingly moving.

As for the grander scope of the new hit ABC drama? Other developments you’ll see when you watch How to Get Away with Murder online include …

  • The flashbacks to the night of Sam’s murder focused on Laurel, who revealed that slept with Frank and used him to dispose of / plant evidence.
  • At this point five people are in on this murder.
  • Sam admitted sleeping with Lila, but swears he didn’t kill her. Annalise thinks Sam’s alibi is a lie and she seems more sure of his guilt than ever.
  • Rebecca did not hear much from Lila about her affair. They were not exactly best friends, despite the link to the scandals they may share.
  • Most significantly, Wes now also knows Sam was sleeping with Lila, leaving the show’s protagonist at an interesting fork in the road.

Will Annalise protect her husband or give her client the best defense she has? Or go rogue and do something so crazy it just might work? Stay tuned.

June Shannon Broke Up With Mark McDaniel BEFORE He Went to Jail For Sexual Assault, Daughter Claims

Earlier today, TMZ reported that June Shannon is dating a convicted child molester named Mark McDaniel. 

Sources claim that McDaniel and Shannon dated before he went to prison for sexual assault in 2004, and they reconciled shortly after he was released in March.

This is June Shannon

Shockingly, insiders say that McDaniel met his 8-year-old victim through Shannon and that she may have even been related to the child.

Fans began voicing their outrage online within minutes of when the story broke and TLC stated the future of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is in question in light of this news. 

June has yet to publicly respond to the news herself, but her daughter – 14-year-old Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon – has come forward to say that there is no truth to the rumor that her mother is involved with McDaniel again.

“The story is not true,” Lauryn told Radar Online. “My mom left Mark 10 years ago. They haven’t seen nor talked to each other in 10 years.”

Lauryn also discussed Mama June’s breakup with Sugar Bear Thompson, stating that her mother is perfectly happy remaining single for the time being.

“She is all about the kids,” Lauryn said. “She only needs us girls, no one else.”

June is expected to make a statement about the rumor that she’s dating McDaniel some time this week.

Teresa Giudice: Bound For Orange is the New Black Prison!

Teresa Giudice has been sentenced to serve her 15-month prison term at the Danbury, Conn., location where the series Orange is the New Black is based.

Teresa Giudice Going to Court

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star was fired by her crisis manager earlier this week, allegedly for trying to orchestrate a move to this very spot.

Wendy Feldman ended her contract with her high profile client on Monday, for not following due process in her representations to the Bureau of Prisons.

Conflicting reports said that she tried to secure a place in a halfway house, which would have allowed her to work and visit home during the weekend.

In any case, a judge shot down her halfway house request, saying that her timing for such applications was all wrong and sending her off to Danbury.

Guidice, who was sentenced to 15 months in prison for fraud and conspiracy with her husband Joe Giudice (who got 41 months) is free until January 5.

The couple will serve their sentences separately so one is with their daughters, who you’re familiar with if you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online.

Orange is the New Black, which is based on a memoir by Piper Kerman inspired by the year she served at the facility, has become a hit for Netflix.

Guidice will not be the only celebrity resident Danbury has seen in recent months. On Friday, October 3, singer Lauryn Hill was released from the facility.

Expect a lot more headlines from there once Teresa checks in. Here are 11 reasons, in GIF form, why her fellow inmates had best be on notice:

Table Flipping Fiend


Teresa Giudice is not gonna take any crap. Her table-flipping reputation will precede her in prison, thanks to The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 1.

Teresa Giudice Headed To Danbury, CT Prison?

Teresa Giudice Signs Copies Of Her New Book "Fabulicious!:On The Grill"The judge shot down Teresa Giudice’s request to be placed in a halfway house during a conference call with Teresa’s new attorney and prosecutors. The judge reportedly said she should have mentioned it during the court proceedings on October 2, although Radar Online reports the judge likely wouldn’t have honored the request anyway. Now word has it Teresa has been told where she’s going to report. RELATED: Is Bravo saving Christmas for the Giudices?

TMZ reports that the Federal Bureau of Prisons has ordered Teresa to report to their Danbury, CT facility. That’s the prison that ‘Orange is the New Black’ is based on.

Now I thought Teresa wanted to go to Danbury, since it’s closer to her daughters in New Jersey, but TMZ claims she did NOT want to go there. Well, who wants to go to prison? At least it’s federal prison. That’s far nicer than the state facilities.

We’ll see if Teresa or Bravo make a statement confirming this assignment.

Daniele Watts, Boyfriend Charged With Lewd Conduct Over Car Sex Scandal

Actress Daniele Watts and her boyfriend have both been charged with lewd conduct over their recent parking lot car sex scandal, according to a new report.

The Django Unchained star was infamously arrested for having sex in her car outside CBS Studios last month, at which point she played the race card.

Watts said she was handcuffed and embarrassed simply for “showing affection” while “fully clothed’ and in a “public place” with Brian James Lucas.

Witnesses at the Directors Guild office who witnessed the hookup told a different story, telling officers that Watts and Lucas were having sex alright.

In the passenger seat, with her straddling him and the door wide open, holding the open sunroof for control. After which Lucas cleaned up with a tissue.

Yeah. Lovely.

In audio from the incident, LAPD Sgt. Jim Parker tells Lucas why he was called to the scene, only to have Watts jump in and bring up her race.

And the fact that she has a publicist. As the confrontation escalates, Watts says she serves “freedom and love,” while the authorities “serve detainment.”

She later yells: “I hope when you’re f–king your spouses you really feel alive.” Watts walked away in a fury, so they cuffed her and brought her back.

Prosecutors listened to the LAPD audio, and examined various testimonies and pictures of Watts straddling her boyfriend with her breasts exposed.

After weighing the Daniele Watts sex photos and all over evidence, both parties were charged with lewd conduct and face up to six months in jail if convicted.

Stay tuned.

Nicholas Brendon Busted For Destruction of Property, Resisting Arrest After Drunken Disturbance

Actor Nicholas Brendon of Buffy the Vampire Slayer was detained in Boise, Idaho, Friday night on suspicion of damaging property and resisting arrest.

The 43-year-old blamed his outburst on a combination of prescription medication and alcohol and says he is very sorry for “unacceptable” behavior like this.

Nicholas Brendon Mug Shot

In town for Tree City Comic Con, he spent several hours in jail after a hotel lobby altercation in which he exhibited “signs of intoxication,” per police.

Brendon “repeatedly refused officers’ commands to stay seated as officers tried to speak with witnesses” and also allegedly broke a decorative dish.

He was then booked into a local jail on criminal charges of malicious injury to property and resisting or obstructing officers, which are both misdemeanors.

He was later released on $600 bond the following day after which he promptly addressed the situation. “I apologize,” the actor began in a statement.

“Usually those words end a message like this but I am beginning with them to emphasize how much I regret disappointing my family, my fans, and myself.” 

“I can offer an explanation but I make no excuse for my unacceptable behavior.”

Waka Flocka Flame was arrested at the Atlanta airport for packing heat. That’ll do it every time.

“For the past 5 days, I have been taking prescription pain medication to help me manage a cyst behind my knee cap, which is scheduled for corrective surgery on Monday.”

“I made the poor decision to mix this prescribed medication with alcohol. The result was embarrassing and unacceptable,” he confessed in the statement.

“I intend to seek appropriate treatment and therapy for my medical ailments as well as my emotional demons,” he said. “Again:  I apologize.”

“Those two small words don’t begin to express my regrets,” the troubled star acknowledged, “but they do mark the beginning of my recovery.”

“During this difficult time, I appreciate understanding as I pursue rehabilitation … and I value support as I earn redemption with my family, friends, and fans.”

Brendon’s arrest comes just one week after he tied the knot with girlfriend Moonda Tee in Las Vegas. Here’s wishing him a full and fast recovery.

War Machine Suicide Note Blames Christy Mack Infidelity, Betrayal

War Machine’s suicide note, discovered after the MMA fighter tried to take his own life last week, appears to lay the blame at the feet of his ex Christy Mack.

  • War Machine Mug Shot
  • Christy Mack Recovered

The former Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver, War Machine attempted suicide inside a Las Vegas jail cell last week, but a corrections officer foiled his plan.

In a letter to a friend sent the day before his suicide bid, the shockingly delusional Koppenhaver talks about how he and Mack broke up and got back together.

“Something seemed different about you,” he recalls saying of his porn star ex, with no mention of the fact that he beat Christy Mack within an inch of her life.

He tries to justify the beating, saying he was stunned to discover her infidelity and betrayal. He writes of how crushed he felt after this alleged revelation:

“Finding what I found that night was devastating, more than you will ever know … not just the unfaithfulness, but the way u cared for him and protected him.”

War Machine says in the note that if he had it to do over again, he’d let Christy’s new boyfriend Corey Thomas beat him up (he pounded him senseless too).

He believes that she would have stopped him and kicked him out instead.

Whatever, man. He then ends his note on an incredibly self-pitying one:

“I still don’t understand how I got into this mess. I don’t know why this had to happen. My life was going so well … I forgive you, please forgive me.”

Oh yes, he forgives her. A pretty audacious claim, considering that War Machine faces 32 charges, including attempted murder, for what he did to her …

Justin Bieber Spars with Floyd Mayweather, Trains Topless

Justin Bieber is getting ready for his next bout with the paparazzi.

In a pair of new photos posted to the social media service Shots, the singer is in the gym with Floyd Mayweather, sparring with the world champion in one image and hitting the speed bag while shirtless in the other.

“@floydmayweather is my trainer” and “Me and the champ @floydmayweather training tonight,” Justin wrote as fairly obvious captions.

  • Boxing with Bieber
  • Justin Bieber in Training

Bieber has actually accompanied Mayweather to the ring for multiple past fights.

He’s also enjoyed a spa day with Mayweather, getting both a manicure and a pedicure with the star athlete back in May.

This continues Justin’s tradition of making friends with men who beat women. He’s filmed videos before with Chris Brown, who pummeled the heck out of Rihanna years ago; and Mayweather has spent time in jail himself for domestic abuse.

We’re not saying Bieber is headed down that same violent path (Selena Gomez should look out for her heart, not her face), but we are saying he should keep more admirable company.

What kind of message is this sending to Bieber’s young fans?

He Can't Keep His Shirt On


Yeah. Selfies like this work if you’re Matthew McConaughey. Not Justin Bieber. Also, Matthew McConaughey would never post selfies like this because he doesn’t need to constantly beg for attention or prove to himself that he’s cool.
