June tells TMZ … the lion’s share of earnings from “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” (a cool $15k – $20k per episode) is being equally divided into funds for all 5 girls: Alana “HBB” Thomson (7), Lauryn (12), Jessica (15) and Anna (18) and baby Kaitlyn.
June says the little stars can’t touch the cash until they turn 21 — except in case of medical emergencies or using it for school — saying, “I want my kids to look back and say, ‘Mama played it smart. Not like those other reality TV people.'”
In fact, June tells us she never even sees the coin … “TLC puts the money into the girls’ trust accounts for me and then I get an email telling me how much everyone gets.”
June added … “You’re never gonna see me drive a Range Rover or a Mercedes. I’ll drive one if someone else pays for it. Never gonna live above my means.”
As for their means … Mama June says Sugarbear still rakes in cash from his contractor job, which is how they pay the bills.
The family’s only major purchase since suddenly becoming famous is a 2005 Ford Expedition.
