TLC Made Honey Boo Boo Holla With Massive Raise After Second Episode

| Filed under: Business BlitzReality TV

If you're going to become a reality star, TLC may be one of the best employers around!

The Learning Channel appreciated Honey Boo Boo Child and the rest of her family appearing on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo so much, that they got a MAJOR raise after just the second episode.

America's new favorite fam was originally earning between $5,000-$7,000 an episode, but after the good people at TLC knew they had a monster hit on their hands, the Thompsons got a bump to between $15,000-$20,000 per ep!

Will that be enough to end Momma June's extreme couponing? Old habits die hard, so probably not.

Plus, she doesn't want the money and fame to change her family. While they are accepting some financial assistance from TLC, she turned down a free house!

That's not all. Agents are "swarming" to get a piece of the Honey Boo Boo pie, but June is turning them all away because she doesn't want money to influence her family's every decision.

It's not easy to say no to such easy money, so our hats are definitely off to this woman. With a second season on the way and America's obsession just beginning to flourish, we can't imagine that the Thompsons will be hurting for money any time soon.

    good for her! I guess she's being cautious after seeing the disaster that became of jon & kate. There's no need to change b/c people are fan of them just the way they are.

    This is ridiculous!! Pay me 20k and I'll let you film my life. I promise my family tree branches off. A baby with two thumbs means one thing………………..INBREEDING. Since when did America become interested in white trash? Vote me for president in 2016 and I'll initiate my redneck eradication proclamation. Hillbilly white trash should not be getting paid to be on tv. They probably dont even know what those small ppl are doing in their small television.

    Re: michy – Keep it real? There is not much real about any of it. You idiots who buy into this crap make me want to puke. I wouldn't watch it for a cool million. Such low class crap on TV now. Good for you, shows what kind of person you are. Which is not a good thing.

    Re: sick_girl – I hate that comparison. Not that I disagree teachers should be paid more (my dad, mom and sister all teach so I get it all too well) but the two things have nothing to do with the other, as teachers get paid with tax payers money. The truly sad thing here is they get paid 20,000 an episode to be horribly rude and disgusting…while people who have to work hard on making this show, some of which probably hate it as much as most of us but a job is a job, probably struggle to make ends meet. That's just sad.

    So much envy in the comments. So you think it's wrong these folks are making some scratch. Would you want to trade with them? Would you want to be this family? Count your blessings people and don't begrudge these poor folks. In a year or two they'll be forgotten this'll be the biggest payday they'll ever see.
