'Honey Boo Boo' Family

We Make Waaay More

than $4k an Episode!!!

9/5/2012 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

Some people just think they are better then others. It's the way they were raised. You know that these people don't treat others like that they are better than them and its refreshing to see people that need the money get it for being themselves. Gotta love honey boo boo! And family

Help control the people population, have your Honey Boo Boo followers shot on site.
You have to face one thing, if the stupid American's weren't watching this crap it wouldn't be on TV. We have no one to blame but our selves.

Face it folks, they are laughing all the way to the bank. They are the redneck version of Housewives of Atlanta....except they live by the railroad tracks...

What's the difference???Both reality shows show people in unreal situations, acting out in excess just for RATINGS.

Seriously, I worry for little Alana and how she is being manipulated by the media for ratings, by her mother for money, and treated by YOU the mean public. She is 7 years old for goodness sake! Stop with the mean comments. Please!

Love it or hate it, you have to admit, they are a unique family.

How did this bunch come to have a reality show? Who would have the idea about something like this? The sad part is that there are many kids these days with the same attitudes and mouthiness as Honey spouts and the mom laughs right along with her! America tunes in for no other reason than it puts people in awe that this "family's" antics are being televised. All the daughters belong to different dads, and Sugar Bear is holding on till he can finally convince Mama to marry him! Eight years and his vision stays blurred. Must be some of the chaw effecting most of his other senses as well...Sense of smell, sense of touch, sense of taste....Yuck I can't picture this! Oh and wait till this kid is not the center of attention and this all ends! Reality will hit and she'll have an emotional meltdown. Future Miss America? Nooooooooooo!

Actually, at least 4 men have had sex with that woman; all 4 of her kids have different fathers and supposedly they don't even know who the father of one of them is. And if she's getting $4000 an episode, she'll have to kiss her welfare check goodbye now!
