Granted, I'm sure the bodyguard the Shannon family has hired is probably paid in live chickens, but still, the fact they have a bodyguard who is with them even when they go to the store, show me they are making about as much money as I thought they were making and I'm also wondering if June Shannon has control of all the funds somehow. I doubt just her money alone is covering all these expenses. Do you think there is a big stalking or kidnapping threat against Honey Boo Boo? the bodyguard also doubles as a driver. In order to really make them look like big shots the Shannons have him put on a cap while driving them and opening the door for them. No matter what though it is still six people being jammed into the front cab of a pickup with Sugar Bear and the dogs in the bed.
