Cardwell, now 20, says McDaniel molested her at age 8, when he was dating her mother.
While Mama June has denied that she is currently dating McDaniel, claiming she has not seen him since he got out of jail in March after serving a 10-year sentence for aggravated child molestation, recent photos show the two together.
This clearly upsets Cardwell as she doesn't understand why her mother would allow McDaniel back into the family's lives. In fact, if she were confronted with McDaniel, she knows exactly what she would do, "I would look at him in disgust and spit in his face and say, 'You f*cking leave or I'm gonna call the cops. You're not supposed to be here, you know what you did.'"
She continues, "It's Mama's fault. 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.
And if Alana should have to deal with with McDaniel, Anna offers up this advice, "Don't get too close. Don't get too attached. Don't be all lovey-dovey on him because you never know what will happen."
Perhaps what upsets Anna most is Mama June's state of mind.
"It's like she's happy," she says. "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.'"
