They’re getting flooded with offers for appearances and endorsements, but the family from the TLC hit Here Comes Honey Boo Boo says they won’t let fame change them!
“We’ll never be Hollywood,” June “Mama” Shannon, 33, tells In Touch, adding that she’ll never give up couponing, Dumpster diving or roadkill hunting either, insisting their windfall “hasn’t changed us.”
Though they stand to reportedly quadruple their salary next season, the fun-loving family embraces the simple life.
“The stuff they do on TV — that’s the way they are every day,” says family friend Tommy Floyd. “They’re just ordinary people. You’ll see ’em at the Dollar General.”
Even June’s extreme couponing giveaways are nothing new. Even prior to the show, says Tommy, “They would help out anybody that might need extra supplies. What they do on TV isn’t a put-on.”
