If you’re going to exploit your family via television reality, TLC sounds like a great way to go! TLC takes TLC of its stars…tender loving care that is. After the second episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, TLC redneckonized that they had a huge hit on their hands and gave the family an enormous raise, before they even asked for it.
Sources very familiar with the situation told TMZ the family went from receiving $5,000 and $7,000 per episode to a WHOPPING $15,000 and $20,000 an episode. TLC also volunteered to cover various expenses, including a bodyguard/driver for Sugar Bear, who was incapacitated after his ATV accident. TLC even offered to help the family find a somewhat larger, more secure home, but June refused because she likes to make a big deal over Christmas—decorating the house (tacky as can be) for the community that she is very dedicated to (what a lucky little town).
Side note: Let’s take a moment to recall what the cable network’s initials stand for. TLC = The Learning Channel. It is safe to say we’ve ALL learned invaluable knowledge about both—the obese and the ignorant.
