Honey Boo Boo

First Redneck

TRUS' FUND BABY!!

EXCLUSIVE

0105-honey-boo-boo-june-splashHoney Boo Boo is already the most famous redneck, and now she's set up to be the richest when she hits 21 ... courtesy of a trust fund set up by Mama June.

June tells TMZ ... the lion's share of earnings from "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" (a cool $15k - $20k per episode) is being equally divided into funds for all 5 girls ...  Alana "HBB" Thomson (7), Lauryn (12), Jessica (15) and Anna (18) and baby Kaitlyn.

June says the little stars can't touch the cash until they turn 21 -- except in case of medical emergencies or using it for school -- saying, "I want my kids to look back and say, 'Mama played it smart. Not like those other reality TV people.'"

In fact, June tells us she never even sees the coin ... "TLC puts the money into the girls' trust accounts for me and then I get an email telling me how much everyone gets."

June added ... "You're never gonna see me drive a Range Rover or a Mercedes. I'll drive one if someone else pays for it. Never gonna live above my means."

As for their means ... Mama June says Sugarbear still rakes in cash from his contractor job, which is how they pay the bills.

The family's only major purchase since suddenly becoming famous is a Ford Expedition ... a 2005.

Say what you want about the HBB 'franchise'... Mama June is DEFINITELY about business. Kudos to her and best wishes to the family.

Heck, I hate to admit it, but if that's all true, you have to give the woman credit! She could teach those idiot Real Housewives and the Krapdashians a thing or two.

Smart lady. Not surprised - even her attitude toward those awful pageants has been relatively sane and she seems to have been just looking for an outlet for her very active and outgoing little girl.

Have never seen the show,,,, but I see very little difference in financial planning for this family and the kardashians. Make the money while you can.
No talent covers all class levels but the money is an incentive for everyone .

Good for them! I actually don't mind the show. You can tell the family really cares about each other. I hope these kids use their money wisely when they turn 21 and get a college education. These kids are much more behaved than the Gosselin brats.
