Apparently, Mama June spent most of the money Alana earned from the time she was 6 until 17. June says that there is only about $33,000 left in the account.

All of this came to light when it came time for Alana to ask for money for college. Pumpkin urged her to ask their mother for money from her Coogan account because Pumpkin isn’t able to help fund Honey Boo Boo’s education.

Honey Boo Boo Calls Out Shark Tank For Help

Honey Boo Boo jokingly posted a video to TikTok asking the professionals on Shark Tank for $150,000. The video showed her blinking at the camera, trying to look persuasive.

“Hey Sharks! Seeking $150K to fund my nursing education! In exchange, you’ll gain 10% equity (I’ll be your go-to nurse for all your family’s little ones!)” she wrote over the clip.

“Just kidding… or am I?” Alana wrote in the caption. “Sharks, if you’re ready to make a deal, count me in! Oh, and let’s keep the lashes hush-hush until my glam session tomorrow!”

Fans flocked to the comment section to root for Honey Boo Boo.

@lanaaaaaa.0 Just kidding…or am I? 😂 Sharks, if you’re ready to make a deal, count me in! 🦈 * Oh, and let’s keep the lashes hush-hush until my glam session tomorrow! #SharkTank #DealTime #honeybooboo #fyp ♬ original sound – tiktokcontent

“You got this you’re gonna make a difference,” one follower commented. A second fan wrote, “You’ll get it funded. You have a huge platform built around you. We have all watched you grow up. You deserve all the support and [your] followers [hear] you.”

Several fans offered her advice on getting her nursing degree. “Pro-tip…..get your ASN at a community college first then finish your BSN or MSN with an employer who helps with tuition assistance. Saves you big,” one person wrote. Another suggested something similar by getting started at a community college before proceeding to a four-year school.

While many people are sympathetic to her situation, others can’t believe she’s asking for money. Fans have taken to other platforms, like Reddit, to discuss how much money Alana Thompson probably has. Yet, she continues to ask for money from her followers and make “joke” posts like the one targeted at the Sharks.

Right now, there has been no response from Shark Tank, and there likely won’t be one. Although her counteroffer is tempting, it isn’t something the Sharks typically invest in.

A new episode of Mama June: Family Crisis airs on Friday at 9 p.m. EST.

  1. Get a job and save the money until you have enough to pay for school. Then go. Also, tell your mother to get off her butt and get a job to pay you back. She is the one who owes you money for your education not others. The world owes you nothing. Help yourself…you are quite capable. Just do it.

  2. Life sucks, get over it. Why would you expect strangers to pay for college? Get off your butt and go find a job. Student loans are there for a reason. Time to get off your high horse and enter the real world…

  3. I would sue her mother as it seems she used the funds illegally, but I may be wrong, perhaps just immorally. i would go to a community college fist as others have suggested, but I would definitely separate from that so called parent.

  4. This is totally disgusting from both sides. First of all, her mother should not have stolen or use that money for her personal gain. Second of all, get off your lazy a** And go find a job like most young kids do to fund their college. Some of them work 2 jobs to fund Their college education. So I will be blunt, GET OFF YOUR FATASS and go find a job!!! I can’t believe you have the nerve to ask other people for money.

    1. she worked her entire childhood and was robbed from the fruits of her labour. Now she is working towards a career on her own, and you say that? Have a tiny bit of compassion. Whether she should have asked or not, she is a person who has been through a lot of trauma. Your response is a bit harsh.

  5. Alana is acting more and more like moma June. Deceitful, Money hungry, no respect . In time I’m afraid she will be a Moma June clone, thinking the world owes her. you want to break the cycle? stop Letting June back into your life are tired of hearing that ” you have had it with Moma!. and dump that thug Drylan too.
