Mama June Tells Dr. Phil 'I Feel Like I Failed To Protect Anna'

Mama June‘s interview with Dr. Phil aired today and it’s becoming more and more clear that she is really, really full of shit.

On Monday’s episode of Dr. Phil, June “Mama June” Shannon continued to try and get people to believe she is not dating convicted child molester Mark McDaniel, the man who went to jail for molesting her daughter Anna.

“There’s some truths and there’s some lies that’s out there, and there’s the truth between that,” she said. Someone get that quote framed and hang it up in the Bullshit Hall of Fame.

In addition to skirting responsibility for bringing Anna’s abuser back into her life she said she knew nothing about the abuse because her daughter never confided in her and then sort of called her a liar. Wow. Via the New York Post:

Mama June also made clear, several times, that her eldest daughter, Anna Marie “Chickadee” Cardwell, who was eight at the time, never told her that McDaniel was molesting her.
“I do, in a way, feel like I failed to protect Anna, but I didn’t know,” Mama June said. “She admitted that too. I was at work when all this happened so I knew nothing. Nothing about anything, she never comed to me, anything, the whole time it was happening.”
She also noted that she is trying to make amends, before bizarrely stating that her daughter doesn’t always tell the truth.
“The only way I can fix that, is constantly apologize and be there for her through the situation,” she said. “And try to move on from the situation. I know it’s hard to move on because she feels like she’s reliving it again, but it’s like, in some instances she’s lied about certain things too.”

The show also featured an interview with Sugar Bear, who backed up Mama June’s claims that their relationship ended because of his cheating. “I couldn’t leave the women on Facebook and texting alone,” he said.

Also, in more news from Denial Land, Mama June told Dr. Phil she doesn’t think her dating the child molester who abused her own daughter is the sole reason TLC cancelled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. OK, sure.

Even Dr. Phil thinks she’s totally full of shit.
