Who isn't addicted to Here Comes Honey Boo Boo? Not only has the show spawned some epic one-liners, I really think this cheese ball consuming, mud bogging, auction food buying, subtitle requiring family really does care about one another.
Now June Shannon, the forklift foot suffering matriarch, is speaking out to all her haters…and she even has a famous hater among them!

First to clear up a vicious rumor that has been going around…June spoke to TMZ about the family's alleged paycheck. Reports have been circulating that the zany pack of characters only makes a mere $4,000 per episode. I don't see what the fuss is about. Four grand will buy a lot of toilet paper and
a lot of two pageant dresses. June made it clear they are making much more than that, although she wouldn't specify, saying, ."We're very well compensated."
What she would say though was "We're making memories to last a lifetime." That trip to the Redneck Games alone will haunt me till death, that's for sure!
June also responds to the family's haters, and they had better redneck-ognize! She tells the same site, "For every person that's hating on us, there's three people that love us," adding that "a lot of people relate to us."
June also calls out those who claim the show glorifies white trash, correctly stating, "It's weird that haters know more about our show than our amazing fans." I adore that June has already learned where her bread is buttered and is pandering to her fans. I've fallen for the whole family hook, line, and sinker.
Someone who isn't quite enamored with the family is Kris Jenner. You're shocked, I know! Kris thinks that June is exploiting her daughters for fame. I'll let you think through the irony of that one for a minute! A source shares with Radar Online, “To say Kris is not a fan of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is an understatement. She thinks the Thompsons are classless, unlike her family and can’t understand why America is so fascinated by them. The show has become bigger than Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and Kris is starting to feel threatened by its success."
The insider continues, “Kris especially has a strong dislike for June, claiming the beauty pageant world is vile and that June is a bad mom for 'exploiting' Alana in that way. Kris think it’s all a ploy to make money, and says she sees through it and thinks it is absolutely disgusting. Although it’s like pot calling the kettle black – you could say that Kris does exactly the same with her family.”
This may be the best news ever for June and her brood…nothing like the biggest fame monger bringing more publicity to the show! Bring it, Kris!
