Now, Cardwell is opening up on camera for the first time, speaking out toEntertainment Tonight about how she feels betrayed and hurt by June for choosing a child molester over her own daughters.
“Im mad, I’m upset, I feel betrayed, and I just feel very hurt… I feel hurt that Mama let him come around,” Cardwell explains, confirmed Mama June and McDaniel have been spending time together despite June’s denial.
“And it’s like she’s happy,” Anna adds as she holds back tears. “She’s smiling and laughing and giggling when he’s around, knowing the fact that, you know, he’s a child molester, Mama. He did this to me.”
But does Mama June even believe that this man forced oral intercourse on her daughter?
“She never told me she believes me,” Cardwell tells ET. “She never said, ‘Hey Anna, I’m sorry for not believing you and I still don’t believe you to this day.’
“It’s Mama’s fault,” she continues. “She has to live with it. She has brung the past back and now she can’t get it away.”
