Earlier this year, 9-year-old former child pageant star Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson saw her four-year reality television reign come to an end after reports surfaced that her mother, June “Mama June” Shannon, was allegedly dating convicted sex offender Mark McDaniel — who pleaded guilty to molesting Mama June’s oldest daughter, 20-year-old Anna, who recently publicly confirmed that she was his victim. Mama June denies being romantically involved with McDaniel, who was released from prison in March 2014 after serving a 10-year sentence for aggravated child molestation. In a daytime television exclusive, Dr. Phil travels to Georgia to visit Mama June. How does she answer to allegations that she has allowed McDaniel around her younger children? Plus, Anna reportedly claims that Mama June depleted her trust fund and used some of the money to buy McDaniel a new car — how does Mama June respond? Does she have her children's best interests at heart? This program contains strong language and adult subject matter. Viewer discretion advised.

In March 2014, authorities found 5-year-old Jordan Bleimeyer
-- who reportedly weighed just 29 pounds. Authorities allege he had been starved and locked inside a small closet under the stairs of a Houston-area home. His father, Bradley, and stepmother, Tammi, were arrested and charged with felony child endangerment. In an exclusive interview, Tammi breaks her silence to explain why she claims she had no idea what was happening to her stepson. What was really happening behind the closed doors of the house that police say was little Jordan’s prison? And, where are Tammi’s seven biological children now? Plus, hear an update from Jordan’s mother, Windy. How is the boy doing now? Then, on the heels of his interview with Mama June, Dr. Phil sits down with Honey Boo Boo’s “Uncle Poodle,” brother to Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson, in another daytime television exclusive. Mama June adamantly denies having any relationship with convicted sex offender Mark McDaniel since his release from prison -- why does Uncle Poodle say she is lying?
