Mama June Spends Thousands to Boost her Floundering Christmas Toy Drive

Over the past five years, June "Mama June" Shannon of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" used her family's notoriety to collect toys for a local Christmas charity. Kids comes from all over to bring toys and to sit on Sugar Bear's lap -- dressed as Santa Claus.

Usually, it's pretty popular. This year, it hasn't been. Mama June ended up purchasing more than $2,000 for toys in order to make up for the shortfall, which is nice.

But she has posted more than once on Facebook that people aren't coming this year because Lee "Uncle Poodle" Thompson is talking smack about her. And maybe he is, but I haven't seen it online. I'm talking specifically about any criticism about her involvement in the annual Christmas toy drive.

This is what really disappoints me about Mama June. She really seems oblivious to the damage that she has done to her reputation -- and her entire family's reputation, for that matter -- because of her romantic relationship with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel. It doesn't matter if it's over. It was stupid to do in the first place.

I mean, they were already causing damage to their brand when she and Sugar Bear broke up and rumors of his infidelity came out. Adding Mark McDaniel to the picture -- particularly since he is the man who sexually abused her oldest daughter roughly ten years ago -- just shows how out of touch they really are.
