Mama June has been pretty much laying low since her sex offender scandal started.

Now she's realizing how serious things are and how curious/outraged the nation is, so she's opening up to the media.

We previously mentioned she sat down with Dr. Phil and explained how she's absolutely NOT dating sex offender Mark McDaniel, who went to jail for sexually abusing her daughter Anna "Chickadee" Cardwell.

Well when Mama June sat down with Entertainment Tonight she revealed that the father of two of her daughters, Jessica "Chubs" Shannon, 17, and Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, 14, IS a convicted sex offender!

And it's not Mark McDaniel!

His name is Michael Anthony Ford, 37, and he served time for sexual exploitation after being busted in 2005 on NBC's To Catch A Predator. Remember when we talked about him a few weeks ago??

Mama June said:

"Jessica and Pumpkin have the same dad, but Jessica's dad has had nothing to do with her over the years. So, why the hell would I open up that can of worms until today? I lied to my family and told them it was somebody else."

Wow. That's just… wow.

Apparently this all came to light after Pumpkin tried to meet with Mark McDaniel, because she thought he was her father.

June continued:

"I was sitting right there with twelve other people. It was a conversation that she wanted her answers: what happened, why did he leave, you know, if he was her real father. He admitted to her, no. I had already told her that but, you know, she wanted to hear from both sides of the story."

So Pumpkin's dad wasn't sex offender McDaniel, her dad was sex offender Ford.

We feel so awful for this poor family!

We're glad to see June out of hiding and hope she's taking every step possible towards protecting and healing her family.

    Two sex offenders? I get that her options are limited but, damn. For those who watched and enjoyed this show, giving them airtime- please be more selective in the future Thanks

    I would have thought some one would have done a little homework on this Family before giving them a National TV show. It would be a shame if they decide that since she came clean (no pun intended) they will bring the show back. Shame on her!! She let not one but two sex offenders into her children's lives.

    That is horrible! The girls were fathered by sex offenders? What is wrong with this woman? It doesn't matter if each child has a different father, but be selective about their pasts for heaven's sakes!

    You'd have to be a sex offender to bang Mama June. Gross. Poor kids.

    June is a text book case of a Woman who herself ,was sexually abuse,and never sought help.Because of this ,June attracts sex offenders to herself…These sex offenders have a radar ,where they sense a wounded weak woman….June is wrong but she is a victim too…Sex offenders cling to some women wearing the"V" for victim,on their foreheads, that lets the sex offender know this woman can be seduced out of her sex and he uses the Mom to get access to her children…this happens ALL of the time…..

    How many people in a life time , end up dating TWO sex offenders? Maybe June needs to think on this……………………She is not the attraction for them, but her girls are. How sick is that? Two? I cant get over that.

    Way to go, your jerks at TLC. This is what happens when you are so greedy that you will exploit children for a buck, Vetting process failed miserably.
