Honey Boo Boo (Alana Thompson) and her mom June Shannon were majorly dissed recently by Keeping Up With the Kardashians ‘momager’ Kris Jenner. She not only hates the reality TV show, but thinks June is a horrible mom for exploiting her little girl.
According to a report from RadarOnline, Kris Jenner might not be the best person to point fingers at anyone about mothering, given the way she practically runs her own daughter’s–Kourtney, Khloe and Kim Kardashian, along with Kendall and Kylie Jenner–lives, but she does make good points when it comes to the whole beauty pageant world–especially for little girls.
“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,” a source says. “She thinks the Thompsons are classless, unlike her family and can’t understand why America is so fascinated by them.”
And while Kris expresses perfectly legitimate concerns, one of the biggest reasons Kris Jenner is anti-June Shannon and her hillbilly family is because Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has now surpassed Keeping Up With the Kardashians in the ratings.
“The show has become bigger than Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and Kris is starting to feel threatened by its success,” the source adds.
What does this say about American television viewers? Isn’t it bad enough that millions of them tune in to watch grown women whose biggest worry is what to pull out of their million-dollar closets, whine about their relationships? Now those millions are tuning in to watch a tactless self-proclaimed redneck family with the class of billy goats exploit a little girl for monetary gain. Isn’t that worse on at least one or two levels?
Do you think Kris Jenner’s diss is nothing more than a case of the pot calling the proverbial kettle black or is she really appalled by the treatment of little Alana Thompson and her sisters?
Which of these two reality TV shows do you think is more heinous? And which group of TV viewers do you think needs serious intervention by a mental health professional?
If Kris Jenner fears being trumped by this vile reality show, does Kim Kardashian fear she’s being one-upped by little Alana Thompson?
