'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.

$4000 and episode is only enough to keep the mother in cow chow. Ever want to know what Honey Boo Boo is going to look like when she grows up...just look at the mom. Run for the hills, boys!!!

Looks like mom can now afford to eat more without worring about where her next meal is coming from.

Perhaps June should spend $18 a month of this money and join Weight Watchers. Her morbid obesity is disgusting and a heart attack waiting to happen.

3 million, my ass. That don't really know how many people watch a program. They use some formula based on Nielson viewers, basically viewing numbers are made up.

Pretty fricking ridiculous if you ask me. I can't even imagine who watches this BS nonsense. I can't believe what this country is coming to. Guess there is no such thing as quality entertainment and CLASS anymore.

A child reality star, oh goody. They'll all end up going the same route as most childhood actors. All that money, and what to do with it. The father will become an alcoholic, mom will start popping pills and that poor kid will be on prescribed meds from the pressure and stress by the time she's seven.

Haha of course they make more than $4k per episode, a hit show will easily bring in upwards of $100k per 30 second commercial...and there's average 20 minutes of commercials per 1 hour of TV show.
Big money, family's not going to sit and take peanuts for pay with that kind of moola floating around
