Other than being a famous redneck, Alana Thomson, the famous Honey Boo Boo Child, would obtain a lot of cash when she hits the number 21 in her life, thanks to the trust fund her mother June set up for her.
June told TMZ that she divided the share earnings from the show ($15,000-S20,000 per show) into 5, and put the equal division into the accounts of her 5 daughters – Alana, Lauryn, Jessica, Anna, and Anna’s baby Kaitlyn.
She reassured that they could not touch the cash until they were 21 years old, except during emergency or education-related purposes.
“I want my kids to look back and say, 'Mama played it smart, not like those other reality TV people,’” June stated in an interview with TMZ.
According to MSN, she had TLC deposited the funds directly to their accounts, in which she herself had never seen a single dime physically.
June told TMZ that she would never spend more than she earned.
"You're never gonna see me drive a Range Rover or a Mercedes. I'll drive one if someone else pays for it," she said. “Never gonna live above my means."
