June Shannon, Honey Boo Boo and the rest of the clan has reportedly gotten an enormous salary raise from TLC after the second episode without even asking for it.
According to sources close to the situation, the family received between $5,000 and $7,000 an episode at the beginning of the series. After the success of the first two episodes wowed the network, they decided to increase their salary as the show was already proving to be a hit. Although the sources didn’t say exactly what the new salary is, they say the increase gave them somewhere between $15,000 and $20,000 per episode.
After volunteering to cover various expenses, reports say TLC even offered to help the family find a somewhat larger, more secure home, but June refused. She said she wanted to stay in the house because she makes a big deal over Christmas decorating the house for the community, as she is heavily involved in her town.
A lot of agents are also reported to be queuing up to sign them on in case June changes her mind on not wanting an agent.
