Kris Jenner Thinks Honey Boo Boo's Mom Is Using Her Kid to Make Cash
It Must Be Like Looking in the Mirror for the Kardashian Mama
If ever there were a case of the exploitative pot calling the kettle black, it's this one: mother of all things Kardashian, Kris Jenner, reportedly "hates" June Shannon, the mother of new reality TV star Honey Boo Boo, because she thinks Shannon is using her child to make money.
We know … clueless.
"To say Kris is not a fan of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is an understatement," a source tells Radar Online.
"She thinks the Thompsons (Honey Boo Boo's family) are classless, unlike her family, and can't understand why America is so fascinated by them."
The source tells Radar Online that Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Jenner is -- duh -- threatened by the success of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, the TLC breakout hit that features 7-year-old Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson and her family.
The series is a spin-off of Toddlers & Tiaras, the reality show on which Honey Boo Boo made her debut as a kiddie beauty pageant contestant.
"Kris especially has a strong dislike for June, claiming the beauty pageant world is vile and that June is a bad mom for 'exploiting' Alana in that way," the source said. "Kris thinks it's all a ploy to make money, and says she sees through it and thinks it is absolutely disgusting."
Unlike, say, a mother whose family's reality TV show and entire livelihood was sparked by her daughter's DIY porn tape …
Meanwhile, though Jenner may be a Honey Boo Boo hater, she's gotta be wishing her reality show was pulling in HBB's ratings. Not only did Here Comes Honey Boo Boo top the ratings for the Republican National Convention, but the show tied the ratings for Bill Clinton's speech at the Democratic National Convention this week.
Get over it, Kris Jenner … like cockroaches and, well, your family, Honey Boo Boo and her brood aren't going to be so easy to get out of our homes.
