Especially alarming is the man’s access to Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson who, at age 9, is close in age to Anna Cardwell who accused Mark of over a year of abuse between 2002-3. The charges were dropped in 2004 but Mark went to prison for 10 years for molesting another child.
As such, other reality stars seem keen to take over their coveted spot.
“Kate [Gosselin] has made no secret that she misses her show,” admits a TLC production source. “She has also made clear that she believes you need to ask for what you want. And that is exactly what she just did.”
Also, June is reportedly begging producers to come back after they packed up in disgust and left her home. “It’s not the $50,000 an episode they get, it has become everything to them,” says a source. “They all got used to the attention and the perks. Now all that has gone.”
Ahead of Kate’s summer special, it was reported that “Shooting the special has only made Kate realize just how much she misses it. She would love to be back on TV on a regular basis. Once you have tasted the TV bug, it is hard to walk away. She is missing the fame and the money.”
“It’s all still happening, with or without cameras,” Kate recently admitted. “I’m getting older, tireder, more worn out. The kids are getting older and smarter and giving me a run for my money, daily and hourly and moment by moment.”
