When TMZ.com spoke with June … after a report claimed the family was making between $2k and $4K an episode — a figure than seems small given 3 million people are hooked on “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” June laughed out loud at the report saying it was wrong, making it clear her family is raking in a good deal more, though she would not be specific.
June said as far as she’s concerned, “We’re making memories to last a lifetime.”
It looks like she’s also making enough money to put Honey Boo Boo through college beauty school.
