Kris Jenner Says Honey Boo Boo’s Mom Is ‘Exploiting’ Her. No, Seriously.
As the matriarch of the Kardashian clan (no, I won’t spell it with a K and you can’t make me), Kris Jenner knows a thing or two about exploitation. After all, she’s been milking her family for fame and fortune for years.
So when she reportedly slammed the mother of the 7-year-old reality star known as Honey Boo Boo for doing the same thing, it was most assuredly an expert opinion.
In a story that may or may not be true but probably is, Radar Online quotes a source that says Jenner thinks June Shannon, whose family appears on the hit show ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,’ is “exploiting” her young daughter Alana Thompson for cash and that Jenner finds it “absolutely disgusting.”
That’s probably only because Kris doesn’t manage Alana and thus makes no money off her. But regardless, the insider says Jenner “thinks the Thompsons are classless, unlike her family, and can’t understand why America is so fascinated by them.”
Unlike, say, the Kardashians, who are only famous because a sex tape of Kim “accidentally” leaked to the public (and by “accidentally” we mean “totally on purpose”). Also, the Thompsons win self-awareness points because they actually know they’re classless.
But wait, there’s more.
“The show has become bigger than ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians,’ and Kris is starting to feel threatened by its success,” the source goes on to say. “Kris especially has a strong dislike for June, claiming [she's] a bad mom for ‘exploiting’ Alana in that way.”
Mighty strong words from a woman who’s likely nicknamed her new granddaughter “untitled E! reality project.”
