Mama June of "" apparently realizes that fame won't last. Instead of using their earnings from the TLC reality TV series to buy expensive stuffs, the family matriarch saves the money to make sure Alaina Thompson and her siblings are financially secured even when time gets rough.
She equally divides the money, $15,000 to $20,000 per episode, among Alana, 7, Lauryn, 12, Jessica, 15, Anna, 18, and Anna's daughter Kaitlyn. She requests it be sent directly into the girls' trust fund so that she won't be tempted to spend it herself. "TLC puts the money into the girls' trust accounts for me and then I get an email telling me how much everyone gets," she says.
