Honey Boo Boo’s Mama June says she won’t squander the payoff from her family’s hit television show on pricey Hollywood splurges.
She may seem like a redneck on TV, but Mama June tells TMZ.com that she’s using her hillbilly common sense to put most of the show’s earnings in a trust fund for her four daughters and granddaughter – and it won’t be available to them until they turn 21. The only allowances are for medical emergencies and school.
“I want my kids to look back and say, ‘Mama played it smart. Not like those other reality TV people,’” Mama June said.
