Mama June’s daughter Anne Marie “Chickadee” Cardwell, who was molested by her mother’s boyfriend when she was eight years old, thinks her younger sister Pumpkin was fathered by the same pedo boyfriend. If this seems confusing you’ve thought about it more than them. The situation is leading to some internal strife in the family, as Cardwell told a sad faced and appropriately judgmental Dr. Drew:
“Out of all the kids we have, Mama does not know who Pumpkin’s daddy is. And Pumpkin thinks it’s Mark, which kind of hurts my feelings, because Mama is making her believe that someone who did that to me is her father. Now Pumpkin hates me for it.”
Even redneck logic only goes half way to explaining that statement. Cardwell says she still talks to her mom, who may or may not be suddenly dying of cancer. Mama June is unwilling to discuss the child rape issues because it would mean facing the harsh reality that she’s a a morbidly obese vermin filled with a festering guilt she is mistaking as cancer. Simply discussing her life would be akin to dropping six tabs of acid and rummaging around a mausoleum. June wants to avoid descending into Lucifer’s dungeon as long as possible. In the meantime there’s a special on donuts and orange soda at Kroger’s.
