Surprise: Honey Boo Boo is a trust-fund baby1/7/2013
You can call Honey Boo Boo’s family rednecks, but you can’t call them financially irresponsible. Honey’s mom, June, has an arrangement with TLC in which the money from the show ($15-20,000 an episode) is deposited directly into trust funds for her five daughters, to be held until they’re 21. All June sees of the money is an email when a deposit is made into the trust funds. “I want my kids to look back and say, ‘Mama played it smart. Not like those other reality TV people.’” June is a genius to do this not just because it provides for her kids, but it also protects the premise of the show and the family’s not-so-ritzy lifestyle.
