Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson is getting to the paper.
The Thompsons reportedly pulled in $50,000 per episode (shade as a family) for their hit TLC reality show ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ last year according to Parade’s annual “What People Earn” issue, which reveals the incomes of some of Hollywood’s highest paid celebrities.
The amount may seem like a paltry sum in comparison to noted A-listers like Brad Pitt ($35 million) and Anne Hathaway ($10 million), but according to the magazine the network tripled their salary once the show struck ratings gold.
The family’s inclusion on the list of 19 stars by alone is a priceless “chile cheese” to critics like Kenya Moore. Mama June at the round table — where your seat at? Where your plate? Where your lobster? Where your seabass?
Taylor Swift’s estimated $57 million salary makes her the third highest-paid woman in entertainment, behind Oprah Winfrey and Britney Spears.
Gabby Douglas scored $10.5 million in 2012 thanks to her best-selling memoir and lucrative endorsement deals. The 17-year-old gymnast pocketed $50,000 from the U.S. Olympic Committee for winning her two golds. Adele raked in around $32 million thanks to earnings from her latest album, ’21.’
Rightfully so, Oprah is making it known that her hips spreading over the years wasn’t just from late night snacking on neckbones and smothered potatoes! Posting the above flick on her Instagram from the love scene in the movie “The Butler”, Miss Sophia makes one major thing public knowledge: don’t leave your man around her.
Get into that mug, bitch! This picture just screams collard greens and hot water cornbread loving and we’re all for it. ‘The Butler’ is set to hit the big screen in early 2013.
The movie has an all-star cast including: Mariah Carey, John Cusack, Jane Fonda, Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Minka Kelly, Lenny Kravitz, Melissa Leo, James Marsden, David Oyelowo, Alex Pettyfer, Vanessa Redgrave, Alan Rickman, Liev Schreiber, Robin Williams and Lady O of course.
Our good sister Oprah Winfrey continues to catch the fade as Businessweek reports hit the net. Industry insiders are whispering across the way the Oprah Winfrey Network won’t last another year if a hit show doesn’t find it’s way on the air in coming months.
