Honey Boo Boo Will Return For A Second Season…If The Price Is Right

September 20, 2012 02:00 PM by Lisa Princ

Despite Kris Jenner‘s hatred for Honey Boo Boo’s family, the Toddlers and Tiaras star has plenty of fans, who love her new show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. But, while the family hopes the show will be renewed for a second season, with fame, comes a price tag!

Will Honey Boo Boo return to our televisions for a second season of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo? Sure, if the price is right! According to The Hollywood Reporter, Honey Boo Boo and her family were making a mere $4,000.00 per episode for season one, and the family wants more money to do another season.

An inside source told the gossip site that: “the Shannon-Thompson family are currently in negotiations with the network and producers to film a second season of the controversial show.” The family is reportedly asking for a $10,000.00 per episode payday for the show’s second season, but another source claims that they will likely receive $8,000.00 per episode instead.

Reps for TLC has no comment on a second season or any salaries, while Discovery Communications president, Eileen O’Neill told the site that a second season is likely, but nothing has been set in stone yet.

    This is the most disgusting child/family I have ever seen. How could anyone think she is cute or funny, I can’t imagine. They are all sickening and a great ad for birth control. Generations of them!

    Why be so mean about this family just because you don’t live like them? The Kardashians got famous off a sex tape AND their father is the one suspected of getting rid of oj’s evidence. They have no talents at all. Not one of them and they wouldn’t give most people the time of day because why???? To me they are a model of whats wrong with this country. When honey boo boo’s mama helps her negotiate a deal for one of her daughter’s sex tapes she’ll be Kardashian material.

    $4,000/show is way more than they deserve let alone more. They are the most hoosier family I have ever seen and do not belong on tv.

    These people

    These people are just real people. They may not behave like we would like for them also but they are still children of God and I believe they should be helped not critized. They do have good hearts and a zest for life.

    This so-called living family is really the reason why I feel abortion should be legalized. This is, without a doubt, the most hideous attempt at a television show that I have ever seen. I was never a fan of the Beverly Hillbillies, however, they seem to have been aristocratics compared to this low form of siblonic attempt at being human siblonic people I have ever encountered. Furthermore, the so-called hideous lad who played the banjo for the song dueling banjo’s,is truly a modern day Clark Gable.

    Heck yah! They deserve at least $10 G’s an episode. They have the same amount of talent as The Kardashian Circus. The whole ” socialite reality TV” is getting a bit old! Bring on the Rednecks!! Go REBELS!!

    How many of you remember, The Dukes of Hazzard, Beverly Hillbillies, Mamas`Family,The Real McCoys, Mayberry, etc. these were not reality shows, but they were fun and entertaining,,,Lets` let this family enjoy thier fame while it lasts, ok…

    Best show in a long time. Real people, warts and all. While the voices of The Simpsons voices get $400,000 an episode, $10K doesn’t seem like too much at all.

    The only thing I worry about is that fame and a little money may ruin these folks. The show would be entirely different if they are forced to move to a gated community.

    Finally, a show about the rest of America.

    I discovered this show through a South Park episode. Then I watched the complete season one of honey boo boo in two days. I cant get enough of this family and my face and stomach is hurting from laughing so much.

    This family is hilarious! You can judge and criticize them all you want, but they are a fun, loving, witty, down to earth outrageous bunch.

    And they’re real, they’re not afraid to let lose. Its more than what you can say about a lot of other up tight, fake, angry families out their.

    I love south park, and the main reason is because the show is so outrageous. The south park parody of Honey Boo Boo lowering the standard is very hypocritical on South Parks part considering south park tries to push the bar down with every episode. Like the episode before the Honey boo boo parody, south park had people drinking Butter’s cum as a sports drink.

    Bottom line people, Honey boo boo and her family are having fun with the show and I and millions of others are thoroughly enterained by them.

    The big surprise to me is how little they make per episode. Only 4000. I mean come on, other sleazy shows star make hundreds of thousands, and even in to the million for being a sleazy ball. Jersy Shore and the Karisahnas anyone.
    Honey boo boo and family should definitely be making more, way more, like a hundred times more than the measly 4k they’re making out. And they have the ratings to justify the increase in salary.

    Honey Boo Boo is one of most entertaining new show to come out in years. And people need to get off their high horse if you think you’re better them, because you are in no way better than them. And i dont care if you have multimillion dollar homes and 10 ferraris in your garage.

    So Don’t be so up tight, just enjoy the ride. Again, Honey boo boo and family are having fun, living their lives and people/viewers get to share in the fun with a window view into this family.

    Finally…a real family without all the polish and glamour of the usual Hollywoood puppets. They may not be pretty but Alana is adorable. I love it that June(mama) doesn’t give one big DAMN what people think and says so. Give ‘em what they want. It’s better than watching Kim K’s same old whining BS about who her next BF is going to be…and to that is the real” who gives a damn” question??????

    They may not what we usually see on tv as a “normal family” but finally a show that shows real people, real problems and real society. If you ask me I believe it’s a bit of “fresh air” from all the other “reality” shows out there! They are humans who act like humans. Come on people, when have you not farted, played silly/fun games with your family.. It shows that these people are loving, funny and genuine people. However 8000 per episode seems crazy to me I’d be so happy with 4000 let alone 8000 or 10000!
