Both ladies are venturing out beyond reality TV and building their brands in their respective areas of interest. Apparently, their enhancements have been more of a distraction than asset recently.

According to TMZ, Mama June’s current boyfriend, Mark McDaniel, was charged with aggravated child molestation back in 2004 for “forcing oral sex on an 8-year-old child.”
