Honey Boo Boo Trust Fund Baby?
One of the most famous red neck children on TV right now, may not be as poor as she seems on her series.
TMZ is reporting that Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thomson might actually be set for life from her TLC show. Her mother, June Thomson, is dividing most of the money they receive from the show, $20,000 per episode, into trust funds for her four daughters Alana Thomson (7), Lauryn Thomson (12), Jessica Thomson (15), Anna Thomson (18), and grand daughter baby Kaitlyn.
The trust funds have been set up so none of the girls can touch the money until they turn 21 years old, unless they have a medical issue or are using it for school.
June told TMZ that she wants her kids to look back and be proud of the money she left behind. Saying, “I want my kids to look back and say, ‘Mama played it smart. Not like those other reality TV people. TLC puts the money into the girls’ trust accounts for me and then I get an email telling me how much everyone gets.”
Adding, “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.”
The family isn’t only talking the talk, they are walking the walk. The only major purchase that the family has made since landing a successful reality show is a 2005 Ford Expedition.
