Alana Thompson's TV Paycheck 'Honey' Poo Poo?
Report: Reality TV family not getting rich off TLC series just yet
Happy child labor day, folks!
To explode the myth that fame and wealth always walk hand in hand, you need only look as far as Honey Boo Boo Child. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the family of seven-year-old Alana Thompson -- the hottest reality star of the moment -- earned only $40,000 from the first season of TLC's "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."
That's $10,000 less per year than the average annual teaching salary in the family's home state of Georgia.
Yet "Honey Boo Boo" earned three million viewers for its Aug. 29 episode alone, eclipsing not only "Toddlers & Tiaras" -- the show from which it spun off -- but every single network's coverage of the Republican National Convention.
Of course, there are always the negotiations for next season.
"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on TLC.
Couldn't have picked a bigger bunch of losers than the voice did--
Many of you are missing the actual point of this article. It's saying just because someone's famous doesn't always mean they are rich. Does the family deserve fame and forturn? No. Alana has no talent other than to be annoying. Her parents should be behind bars for child explotation and endangerment. But those things aren't the point of the article.
It's just saying fame doesn't always equal big money.
Mother is one of most disgustinng persons I have come across - daughter will be just like her . classless people - the kid needs a good smack in the mouth = fresh to all adults but look who the role models are
