The outspoken matriarch on ‘Here Comes Honey Boo’ said in a recent interview that family members have been coming out of the woodworks, and she’s worried they’ll beg for money! Read on for more details.

There’s no denying that Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has become a virtual overnight success, and the show is ratings gold. But with their newfound fame comes more money — and more problems for head of the household, Mama June Shannon.

The “Coupon Queen” is worried that people will be coming out of the woodworks to stake a claim in their recent fame and influx of cash, and with good reason.

The father of June’s daughter Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon recently tried to reach out to his daughter after being absent for so long.

“He hasn’t wanted to deal with Jessica for 15 years, and all of a sudden the show comes out, and he’s father of the year,” she told In Touch magazine.

She said he contacted Jessica “because she’s famous.” Even though she blew him off, the family matriarch said she’s also worried that others will try to use their family for money or face time on camera.

But, she said she’s fighting to make sure no one is taken advantage of.

What do YOU think HollyMoms? Should June be worried?
