Honey Boo Boo, that precocious little blonde firecracker who’s taken the world by storm via TLC, has been the subject of some debate recently; her whole family has, in fact. Seems everyone wants to know what sort of money can be made in the world of reality television when you’re one of the top breadwinners in the way of viewers.
While several media outlets reported that the family makes between $2,000 and $4,000 an episode, Honey Boo Boo’s mom, June, has cleared that right up. The pageant mom spoke to reps from TMZ today and laughed at the idea that her family would take such a small amount in the name of broadcasting their lives on national television. Although she wouldn’t get specific, she made it clear that four grand was a woefully uneducated guess.
