TLC Takes Care Of Honey Boo Boo Child

Looks like the laughing stock that is TLC’s hit reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is now laughing all the way to the bank.

Mama Boo Boo (a.k.a. June Shannon) and family received a sizable salary increase from TLC almost immediately after the show debuted, according to TMZ. Initially set to be paid between $5,000 and $7,000 an episode, the family were recognized as an instant success by the network who offered a boost in their salary straight after the show’s second episode. The increase reportedly gave them somewhere between $15,000 and $20,000 an episode.

The network has gone above and beyond their role, offering to pay for various expenses including a bodyguard/driver for Sugar Bear (incapacitated after his ATV accident) and to help the family find better living conditions, the latter which June refused. June wants to stay in the house because she apparently makes a big deal over Christmas and decorates the house for the community.

TMZ also reports that agents have been “swarming” around the family and trying to sign them but once again, June is having none of it. She doesn’t want to make money the sole object of the show and is worried if she signs with an agent that person will talk her into making various appearances that will take her away from her family. Gotta love ‘em.
