Honey Boo Boo’s mom June is playing it smart and doesn’t use the money they receive from their hit television show. June may act like a redneck but she uses common sense when it comes to money and puts the shows earnings in trust funds according to People on Jan. 7.
June has trust funds set up for the four daughters and one granddaughter. The funds will not be made available to the girls until they turn 21 years of age. The only exceptions would be a medical emergency or school.
Honey Boo Boo makes between $15,000 to $20,000 per episode. The money for each episode is placed in the accounts and June receives a statement from TLC that it has been deposited. So how do they pay their bills? Just like any other family. Her husband works and the bills get paid with his contractor job.
June admits that their biggest splurge since Honey Boo Boo’s success has been a 2005 Ford Expedition SUV. It sounds like the girls will once day appreciate what their mom has done for them.
