Kris Jenner Could Take Some Parenting Tips From Honey Boo Boo’s Mum

Kris Jenner who has probably already written a list on ways to exploit her unborn grandchild from Kim Kardashian’s might want to take some parenting tips from Honey Boo Boo’s mother June.

The Daily Mail reveals that June does not take any money from the family’s reality TV show but places the payments all in trust for her four daughters which they will be able to access when they are adults.

The only time they can get the money before then is if they require it for educational or health purposes.

Considering they are now rumoured to get between $15,000 and $20,000 an episode it could be a sizeable chunk  in the future.

The Daily Mail writes:

‘I want my kids to look back and say, “Mama played it smart. Not like those other reality TV people,”‘ she told website TMZ.

And Mama June, as she is known, has ensured she won’t be tempted to take the money for herself by asking TLC to pay it straight into the trust funds.

‘TLC puts the money into the girls’ trust accounts for me and then I get an email telling me how much everyone gets,’ she explained.

‘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.’

Have to confess I have new found respect for her trying to ensure her kids futures without being greedy herself.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo starts on Discovery Health on It will be on Discovery Homes and Health from Thursday 31 January at 8pm.
