First comes love, second comes Marriage Boot Camp for Mama June Shannon and Sugar Bear.
"It was our last resort," Shannon tells PEOPLE of her decision to appear on the show, which helps troubled couples ultimately decide if they should stay together or not.
"I feel like he had cheated for quite some time, and I needed some answers," says Shannon. "It was either you go here or we end our 11 years."
The couple split last September, but just a month later reports surfaced that Shannon was dating former boyfriend Mark McDaniel – a convicted sex offender who allegedly molested Shannon's daughter Anna "Chickadee" Cardwell when she was just 8 years old.

Former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star Anna Cardwell is claiming that she is owed upwards of $201,000 for her appearances on the now-canceled TLC reality show, according to the Associated Press.
The lawsuit filed Monday names Cardwell's mother, June Shannon, as well as Honey Boo Boo LLC, and claims that they were in control of money that was meant to be put in a trust for Cardwell and for her daughter, Kaitlyn, now 2 years old.
Along with the $201,000 allegedly owed to herself, Cardwell, 20, also claims that Kaitlyn is owed close to $100,000.

Mama June Shannon is fighting mad, and she's not backing down.
The reality-TV star, whose show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was canceled last October, said in an interview over the weekend with Extra that she's "mad" over what she sees as unfair treatment by TLC in the wake of the Josh Duggar molestation scandal.
While TLC canceled Honey Boo Boo just hours after a photo surfaced online of Shannon with a convicted child molester, the network has not axed 19 Kids and Counting, choosing instead to pull the show from its schedule following serious revelations about the oldest Duggar son.

Considering that Alana's favorite exercise is "belly flops," the medical show's experts fear the former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star may not be shedding her extra weight anytime soon.
