Honey Boo Boo's Mom

Haters Make Us Stronger

9/5/2012 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

090512_honey_tmzlive_launch_v2Honey Boo Boo's mother June isn't fazed by the millions of pretentious snobs who scoff at her and her family -- telling TMZ Live, "For every person that's hating on us, there's three people that love us."

June "Mama" Shannon called in moments ago ... and we asked if she was irked by all the holier-than-thous crawling out of the woodwork, critiquing the new TLC reality show "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" as redneck trash.

June says she isn't bothered one bit ... because "a lot of people relate to us."

And as far as June is concerned, the haters are only giving her show more momentum -- "It's weird that haters know more about our show than our amazing fans."

As for the massive paycheck June's earning from the show -- way more than $4,000 an episode -- she wouldn't specify an exact amount, but said, "We're very well compensated."

I can not believe this hippo is only 33!!! Im 35 and she looks like she is waaay older than me. What the cheesburgers can do!! She is HUGE for 33. She can use some of that money she wins for expoiting her child and hire a nutrionist and a treadmill

I'm not so sure it is people relating with them as much as people enjoying watching and feeling better about their own lives, but whatever.

They seem like a not incredibly bright, honest family who love each other. They are not pretentious, preening, phonies like most of the people who populate the stories on this web site.

That poor little kid is in for a rude awakening when she gets older. She can't help how she is being raised but good LORD her world is going to come crashing down when the cute baby fat isn't so cute anymore and she suffers rejection after rejection. ONe day she will end up on the couch gorging on Cheetos, ice cream and hotdogs while staring longingly at her crowns in her single wide, because her mom spent all of her money, telling everyone who will listen about her glory days, and they won't believe her. She will be crushed under the weight of reality and won't be able to handle it. Poor kid.

(psst you know how feminists are always saying it's *men" who insult women about their looks and body and drive women to anorexia etc?....just observe the way women talk about other women and ask yourself...Is it really men's faults?)
