'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.

Who knew living vicariously through your child could be so lucrative. So what if your child is gonna hate you when she gets older for putting her through this, you will be rich.

This show is great. Honey Boo Boo is not a brat...compared to other pageant kids. June is actually a pretty normal mom. She cares about her kids and wants what is best for them even though she doesn't know how to give it to them. Just because people are raised differently then you and they don't raise their kids like you would doesn't mean they should be taken out back and shot. Come on with the bullies...talk crap about the mom if you must but talking crap about a 4 year old...thats just sick.

really! really?    

Modern-day circus freak show. Better when you threw a couple of quarters to the freaks out of pity than to give them fat checks to keep them unhealthy and uneducated just so a network can make a buck in the process. sad sad sad
