The blended Thompson-Shannon family of Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo has often invited comparisons to the Kardashian-Jenner clan and, as it turns out, Mama June tends to agree with some of them. But rather than compare herself to matriarch Kris Jenner, June seems to feel she’s got more in common with Kim Kardashian.
"Me and Kim are similar, uh, because we have kids out of wedlock," she says in the episode airing tonight on TLC, which portrays the family’s group decision to dress for Halloween as the Calabasas-based reality family they’re so often measured against.
"We both got big asses, but Kim ain't got s—t on this, baby,” June boasts. “This is the bigger version, bigger and better."
There’s no doubt that Honey Boo-Boo’s mama has a healthy self-esteem, which she’s passed on to her most famous daughter Alana Thompson. Since she’s a bit of a bossy-pants, Honey Boo-Boo took on the role of momager Kris for her Halloween costume.
“We’re more like the Kar-trashians!” one of the animal-print clad Shannon-Thompsons quips, as they head out for a little trick-or-treating. Well, one thing’s for sure. Both clans certainly know how to have big family fun.
