The series, which follows the life of child beauty queen "Honey Boo Boo" and her family, returned Sunday night with a special "holla" day episode, and a newly blonde-haired Mamma June.
The Georgia mom has now told TMZ that the reported $20,000 that the family earns for each episode of the "Toddlers and Tiaras" spinoff is being split into trust funds for her four daughters -- money the girls can't touch "until they turn 21," except to pay for school.
