While Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has been criticized for exploiting the “redneck” family, June Shannon matriarch recently revealed that it is building her daughters a financially secure future.
June Shannon has sensibly divided the estimated $15,000 to $20,000 episode fee into equal trust funds for her four daughters and granddaughter.
When Honey Boo Boo and her sisters Lauryn, 12, Jessica, 15, Anna, 18, and Anna’s daughter Kaitlyn turn 21 they will receive a sizeable amount of money.
Only if they need money for their education, or healthcare, can the girls access the money before then.
Full time mother Mama June, explained that she and her partner, Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson, live off his salary as a contractor.
Honey Boo Boo’s family has made one large purchase since their new found fame – a second hand, seven-year-old Ford Expedition.
