Honey Boo Boo Gets a Pay Raise

In news that should cause us all to weep for humanity, TMZ reports that Honey Boo Boo and the rest of the TLC reality series family have gotten a big raise in pay.

Honey Boo Boo cast

The initial deal for the breakout reality series saw the family making between $5000 and $7000 per episode, but when the network realized what kind of a hit they had on their hands they saw fit to boost that amount substantially. Reportedly, the family did not even ask for the pay raise, but perhaps network heads decided $15000 to $20000 per episode, as well as covering various living expenses for the clan, would be enough to keep the family happy and more committed to the series and network in general. This seems to be the play, as reportedly agents have been trying to entice June Shannon and her family away from their TLC deal.

Credit matriarch June Shannon for staying true to her roots, at least for now. TLC seemingly even offered to relocate the family to a larger and more secure home but Shannon turned that down. Her involvement with her town and relationship with her family are also reasons Shannon has shied away from any sweetheart deals Hollywood agents are waving in her face.
