Amid family criminal allegations that have surfaced since the launch of ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,’ Mama June wants to set the record straight! Read on to find out what she said.

Mama June Shannon, the blunt head of the Honey Boo Boo household, has finally spoken out about her family’s legal troubles — and insists they don’t have any secrets.

“I don’t have anything to hide,” June told People, and said she doesn’t regret opening herself up to criticism by putting herself and her family, including 7-year-old daughter Alana Thompson, on TV with Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

But when the “Coupon Queen” and her clan were investigated by Georgia child protection authorities after a video surfaced of Alana “Honey Boo Boo” dancing on top of a bar, the mom of four said it was the hardest thing she’s ever had to deal with.

“It was the worst four days of my whole entire life,” June said. Although she defneded the video as Alana partaking in a “a meet-and-greet” at a concert, she learned her lesson.

“After I left, I realized, ‘I’m not gonna put Alana in that situation again because it was crazy.'” Luckily, no charges were ever filed after that investigation.

June also told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS FM radio show on Aug. 29 that if Alana said she wanted to quit doing pageants and the TV show, they would stop and continue on with their normal lives.

But not to worry — it looks like their TV show and crazy antics are still going strong.
