Well, this is… interesting.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo's Anna Cardwell aka Chikadee has found a new job to make up for the cancellation of her fam's hit TLC show — and the gig is NOT what you might expect.

The 20-year-old is now the spokesperson for the company, Young Living Essential Oils, which hawks products on the basis of unsubstantiated claims concerning ebola and even cancer.
According to the corporation's website, one of the available oils can PREVENT ebola, claiming:
"The Ebola virus cannot survive in the presence of a therapeutic grade Cinnamon Bark and Oregano essential oil."
Umm, we think the FDA and every reputable health professional would argue that crazy and DANGEROUS assertion!
While it's unclear if Cardwell ACTUALLY believes in the products she's selling, what IS apparent is the former reality star's desperate need for money.
Over the weekend, Anna set up a GoFundMe page for 20K, which she has since shut down after fans called her out for being greedy.
Well, at least Chikadee has a paying job!
