THE salaries of the Honey Boo Boo show stars has been revealed!

Sources estimate their TLC reality series, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has earned seven-year-old Alana Thompson and her family a salary in the tens of thousands.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the family earns between $2,000 and $4,000 per episode, possibly hitting $40,000 for the 10-episode season.

However, June Shannon, the matriarch of the “Honey Boo Boo” family, spoke with TMZ and “laughed out loud” at The Hollywood Reporter‘s report. Though she wouldn’t be specific, TMZ claims it was clear the family makes far more than $2,000 to $4,000 per episode.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is a spinoff series from TLC’s Toddler & Tiaras, on which young beauty queen Alana first appeared and hollered for that dollar. The show follows the seven-year-old and her crazy “redneck” family living in Georgia — “Mama” June, chalk-mining dad “Sugar Bear” and sisters 12-year-old Lauryn “Pumpkin,” 15-year-old Jessica “Chubbs” and 17-year-old Anna “Chickadee.”

The family has captured the attention of America’s viewers. However, the family has not gotten used to “Honey Boo Boo” fame.

“It’s kind of like, crazy seeing yourself on TV,” June said during an interview with People magazine. “[But] we’re just common everyday people.”
