TLC has ordered additional episodes of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo after audiences showed an appetite for the net’s redneck reality offering this summer. Fresh season-one episodes will include holiday specials for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Honey Boo Boo is seen here outside her home on Tuesday (September 25, 2012) wearing a Piggly Wiggly shirt.
Fans can get their fill of Honey with new Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas specials while they wait for the new episodes to air in the spring, reports Entertainment Weekly.
Spoiler alert, Wednesday’s finale saw the little miss Boo Boo compete in the Miss Sparkle and Shine pageant, all dolled up like a blueberry, but the pint size diva did not place in the top three, instead taking home the People’s Choice Award.
So how much is Honey and the fam making for their trainwreck of a reality show?
Even though Honey Boo Boo is famous for saying, “a dolla makes me holla”, it is unclear how much the family is earning for the new episodes. The show stirred controversy when it was revealed they were being paid only $2,000 to $4,000 per episode.
The Hollywood Reporter said the family is now asking for a $10,000-an-episode payday but an insider reportedly told the magazine they will probably land somewhere around $8,000 per episode.
