Here Comes Honey Boo Boo's Mama June Puts Reality TV Wages in Trust Funds

Subscribe to Alana Thompson alerts

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are prime examples of reality TV subjects gone wrong. Heidi ended up developing an addiction to plastic surgery and blew a load of their money on that, plus reports a while back said that Spencer spent a ton of dough on crystal. Not the drug, no, literal crystals. Shiny stones. Anyway, there's one reality TV family who is treating their money right: the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo family.

According to TMZ Mama June, Honey Boo Boo's mom, has been stashing away their earnings in trust funds for her four daughters- star of the show Alana aged 7, and her sisters Lauren aged 12, Jessica aged 15 and Anna aged 18, plus another fund for June's granddaughter Kaitlyn.  

"TLC [the company that pays us] puts the money into the girls' trust accounts for me and then I get an email telling me how much everyone gets,' she explained. "You're never gonna see me drive a Range Rover or a Mercedes. I'll drive one if someone else pays for it. Never gonna live above my means." 

Apparently, they still pay their bills using her husbands wages that he earns as a contractor, despite the $15,000 - $20,000 pay check they get per episode. The biggest thing they've splashed out on recently? A 'new' car, a 2005 Ford Expedition. "I want my kids to look back and say, 'Mama played it smart. Not like those other reality TV people.'" We don't need to look back Mama June, you're playing it smart. Now, she just needs to stop giving Honey Boo Boo GoGo juice and she'd be mom of the year.
