June Shannon to Honey Boo Boo Haters: Bring It!

by at . Comments

June Shannon may not come across as the sharpest knife in almost any drawer, but the matriarch on Here Comes Honey Boo can at least do some basic math.

So while the criticism against TLC, this series and the family at its center may grow stronger by the week, the ratings do the same.

Indeed, "for every person that's hating on us, there's three people that love us," Shannon tells TMZ when asked about her critics. "It's weird that haters know more about our show than our amazing fans."

Shannon believes "a lot of people relate to" the Thompsons, a unit comprised of six-year old Alana, her three sisters and Alana's biological father, Mike.

But not many out there can relate to the salary this family rakes in for each episode. Shannon has shot down reports that put her weekly take-home at $4,000 and simply says in this latest interview:

"We're very well compensated."

How do you feel about the Thompsons?

Right now we're astonished through the gown grasp, regardless of whether the custom or perhaps a celeb, billige nike free http://www.freerunskodenmark.c... primarily 1 cause -- these people produced their very own design. The individual must have their own visual curiosity, as well as cannot be influenced through the wave associated with ever-changing, however ought hzmnike417 to value the actual stylish within their personal sculpt, with the addition of aspects of style in those days, integration in to individual flavor


what a disgusting photo. she looks like she's waiting for someone to stick a shotgun in her mouth to put her out of her misery--sorry, OUR misery! i do hope they go onto these sites and read about themselve--oh, i forgot, they can't read!!!!! i wish tv would remove their commercials, but i guess all i have to do is switch stations....gee, how did i get so smart


saw a commercial with one kid blind folded and they were all breathing in her face with their putrid filthy unbrushed teeth(?) as she was all grossed out. God only knows what they eat. next they'll be backing up to the kids nose with their fat hairy butts.....lol


How this family behaves is no one else's business unless they hurt someone else in any way. You don't have to watch the show. Yes, it can be surprising to some insulated individuals that people exist in this country who do not have the grammar, poise, physical good looks or interest in their own health that they feel they themselves possess. But that is the way it is, has always been, and always will be. Bottom line: this family lucked into a way to support their family without using the government and are paying their fair share of taxes on their good fortune. They spend time with their children, who are not abused. They don't appear to be drunks or drug addicts. Anybody can stand to lose weight and learn more refined manners- there is nothing here I can really find too much fault with.


good comment cherylr! you should be proud of your roots. problem is, this "dirt" is everywhere, not just in the south!!!! there is no escape!


I've never watched the show, but I've seen excerpts of it. I noticed a chubby, obnoxious, kid, and a mother that looks like a giant pile, of manure.


Disgusting to say the least. no one so gross should be on television, much less be paid to be on television.
I have southern roots and am very proud so no - I don't hate hillbillies. But these folks seriously have to stop; saw the show once, never, ever again!


she is a fat filthy slob and a lousy excuse for a mother. just look at the picture. great example to set for young girls. by the way, she all ready failed with the one pregnant kid. is that ugly grizzly man i see in these photos the father of that young girls kid??? good grief!!!! dcys better be watching--i think they are. very scarey.........


Jealousy is running rampant over the fact that June Shannon and her famly are on tv making a ton of money. Why does it matter how heavy someone is? It just goes to show you that you dont have to be skinny, attractive, rich, spoiled, conceited and educated to be on tv making lots of money. Good for them, they are laughing all the way to the bank. I bet if the haters were offered the same deal they would jump at the chance to do the same thing and perhaps some of them should take a good long look in the mirror and see what is looking back, cock eyes, crooked hooked noses, buck teeth, no lips, eyes so close together you look like an anteater,zits, big ears, receding hair lines, etc. etc. Please stop commenting on June's weight. Being bigger doesn't make you any less a person and no I am not fat. I am small, slim and athletic so there. Those of us who are fans of the show are just tired of hearing about June's weight.

@ wildrose55

Of course they are making money. TLC sees these idiots and knows they can put them on TV and make tens of millions of dollars by exploiting these hideous idiotic trolls.


One reason for the increase of reality shows is its one of the cheapest programs for a network to produce. No huge salaries for actors, no writers to pay, no sets, no unions, little insurance to pay. Much larger profit for networks and producers. It's in their best interest to keep churning out this type of program.
