And, it’s rubbed off on Honey Boo Boo, who says, “A dollar makes me hollar!”
Honey Boo Boo’s mother gets it – Why can’t Obama?
The mother of reality TV star Honey Boo Boo understands that you don’t spend more than you bring in. Why is it so hard for Barack Obama and Democrats to understand this basic principle?
Sunshine State Sarah reported:
According to People.com, “Mama” June Thompson, the mother of the child for whom the show is named (seven year old Alana Thompson, aka “Honey Boo Boo”), has been putting most of the earnings from the show into five equally divided trust accounts for her four daughters (including Alana) and her granddaughter.
The funds will be kept in each girl’s trust until she turns 21, with the only exception being school expenses or medical emergencies. With each episode of the show paying an estimated $15,000 to $20,000, “Mama June” has established very nice nest eggs for her girls.
The People.com article also quotes “Mama June” as saying that they pay their bills from what her husband, “Sugarbear,” earns as a contractor, and their biggest splurge was a 2005 Ford Expedition:
“You’re never gonna see me drive a Range Rover or a Mercedes…Never gonna live above my means.”
