Mama June on Honey Boo Boo’s Fame: She’ll Have $omething to $how for It

By: Lisa Luchesi / January 16, 2013

iHoney Boo Boo will still be sporting tiaras even when she’s far from being a toddler — thanks to her mother’s careful financial planning.

“I don’t want them to look back on all this and not have anything to show for it,” June Thompson, better known as Mama June, told Celebuzz.

“I want them to have money for college, a car, a house and more when they get older.”

To ensure it, Thompson — who stars with her daughter and down-home brood on TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo — has set up a trust fund. Earnings from the show will eventually go to her four daughters and granddaughter.

And that trust fund may just be bursting at the seams: the reality TV star is collecting $15,000 to 20,000 per episode.

“When they get older, I want them to have something to show from our adventures of fame,” Mama June added.

And what does the future have in store for Honey Boo Boo?

“Alana has lots of ideas of what she wants to be,” Mama June dished. “She says she wants to be a teacher and mommy.”
