Did Kris Jenner Call Honey Boo Boo and Her Family “Classless”? (Update)
UPDATE: Despite earlier reports, Kris Jenner denies ever having criticized Honey Boo Boo Child and her family. "I would never criticize her, because I don't even really know who Honey Boo Boo is," the Kardashian mama told E! News.
Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner has reportedly been feeling a tad threatened by another reality TV mama lately. Sources tell Radar Online that Kris has become increasingly bitter towards the cast of TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, worrying that the hit show has been taking away attention from Keeping Up With the Kardashians. The reality star also reportedly can’t stand Honey Boo Boo’s mom, June Shannon, and feels that the southern momager is exploiting her 7-year-old daughter, Alana.
“To say Kris is not a fan of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is an understatement,” a source said. “She thinks the Thompsons are classless, unlike her family and can’t understand why America is so fascinated by them.”
Mama Jenner also seems to be unable to hide her contempt for June, who enters her daughter Alana into beauty pageants across the country.
“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 insider said. “Kris thinks it’s all a ploy to make money, and says she sees through it and thinks it is absolutely disgusting.”
“Exploiting” one’s children for reality TV fame and fortune should sound somewhat familiar to Kris, who has been criticized in the past for “pimping out” her kids. Perhaps those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones!
