Honey Boo Boo Wants A Pay Raise
by Jose Seminario | on September 19, 2012
Wow – Honey Boo Boo and her pose want a pay raise already for their second season. They were getting $4000 per episode while the Kardashians have been getting millions.
The show has been a huge hit and you feel like you are watching a foreign show. Every time Honey Boo Boo and her family speaks there are subtitles so you know what they are saying. It does sound like a different language.
Seven-year-old pageant contestant Alana Thompson and her self-proclaimed “redneck” family are in talks to return to TLC for a second season of the hit reality series.
The show — which follows the daily life of the Georgia-based clan, which includes bobbing for pig feet, flatulence jokes and extreme couponing — has become a ratings sensation for the network, with more than 2.1 million viewers tuning into its Sept. 13 episode. The show even topped all individual cable and network broadcasts of the Republican National Convention on Aug. 19 with a 1.3 rating with adults 18-49.
According to a source, the Shannon-Thompson family is currently in negotiations with the network and producers to film a second season of the controversial show, which was spun off from TLC’s popular series Toddlers & Tiaras after Thompson’s interview clips earned more than 5 million viewers on YouTube.
A source says the cast — including Alana’s 17-year-old sister, who recently gave birth to her first child — is now asking for a $10,000-an-episode payday; however, another insider suggests the family will most likely land closer to an $8,000-an-episode salary after negotiations with the network conclude (that would double their season one salary of $4,000 an episode and a possible built-in location fee, as The Hollywood Reporter first reported). The show’s six-episode first season ends with a one-hour season finale Sept. 26.
