'Honey Boo Boo' Family

We Make Waaay More

than $4k an Episode!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0905_alana_june_holler_honey_boo_boo_money_articleJune Shannon, the epic stage mom of Honey Boo Boo, scoffed at reports her family makes a measly $4,000 an episode.

We spoke with June ... after a report claimed the family was making between $2k and $4K an episode -- a figure than seems small given 3 million people are hooked on "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."

When we spoke with June she laughed out loud at the report saying it was wrong, making it clear her family is raking in a good deal more -- though she would not be specific.

June said as far as she's concerned, "We're making memories to last a lifetime."

It looks like she's also making enough money to put Honey Boo Boo through college beauty school.

As June puts it "love us or hate us" we don't care...They're still ranking in the big bucks...$25K an episode. It totally states that not to fork out tons of cash to college since you could make it big without...I shelled out over $22K for College 25 years ago. Still paying a fortune in school loans. NOt worth it in the long end. The jobs won't be their for most...Thank goodness for Honey Boo Boo who proves you can make it big without an education...YEAH!

Think about it, how many here can say that their husbands love them like Sugar Bear loves his chubby June ..... I think they are funny and when it is all said and done they will go back to their happy lives as they know it
