'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.

Is the mother off of state--sponsored support now that she is raking in the bucks for her stupidity and lack of judgment which resulted in girls who are ALREADY displaying their mother's characteristics by reproducing themselves? The daughter who is now a mother is probably on state-sponsored care also. I don't question the mother's love for her daughters, but it is twisted. Lucky for the mother she found a male counterpart, huh?

That sloppy fat Momma needs to use some of that money on a visit to the dentist office. You could write Honey Boo Boo in the grime on her corn kernel teeth.

I'm happy to hear they're making $$. They can afford to pay for the health problems that they'll have as a result of THEIR poor diet. I'm surprised that honey the boo boo hasn't been diagnosed with the diabetes yet.

Does anyone even watch this crap. Nothing more than a bunch of fat loser moms living their dreams through their kids. These shows are nothing more than legalized kiddie porn. Hope mommy and daddy aren't to busy and spending the cash, to give some thought to what's out there in TV land making memories too as they exploit their little brat on TV weekly. "Chester the child molester "comes to mind. He's making memories too jacking off to the sight of Honey Boo Boo, same day, same time weekly. Wonder if the greater than 4k a week the parents make give them as much pleasure as it gives the tv land pervert.

The whole thing is gross just gross, the networks that air these shows, the sponsers that make it possible, the parents that exploit their kids, and the little monsters these parents turn their kids into, as well as the tv audience that tunes into this crap.
