June is determined to keep her family grounded despite their newfound fame. She hasn’t even let them make any outrageous splurges, she admitted in a new interview! Read on for all the details.

When Here Comes Honey Boo Boo premiered on TLC late this summer, America made instant stars out of Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and her over-the-top family. Her mother, June Shannon, is determined to keep her family’s life as normal as possible in light of their fame.

In a new interview with In Touch magazine, June tells the magazine that she wants to keep her family grounded. “Our only big splurge has been an above-ground pool,” she says, adding that she’ll never quit her extreme couponing and wears her self-described “redneck” tag with pride.

Sugar Bear still works, I still love to go shopping at Walmart. We’re having fun as a family,” she says. Good for them!

Are you glad that June is determined to keep her family normal, HollywoodLifers?
