Kris Jenner Can’t Understand America’s Fascination With Honey Boo Boo

[ Life]

Kris Jenner, who’s gotten quite a bad reputation as a pushy, fame-starved, exploitative mom, has allegedly lashed out at June Shannon, mother of Toddler With Tiara Alana, a.k.a Honey Boo Boo.

Although there are no quotes from Kris herself, a “source” has confided in RadarOnline that Jenner can’t stand the pageant circuit and thinks the family showcasing themselves on television for money is “classless”. I’ll give you a moment to let that sink in.

Of course, this same source thinks there’s another reason Kris is upset with the Boo Boo family.

“She thinks the Thompsons are classless, unlike her family and can’t understand why America is so fascinated by them. The show has become bigger than Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and Kris is starting to feel threatened by its success.”

While it’s true that America has fallen in love with the Southern family and their gay-pig-loving, cheeseball-gorging, farting ways, it’s also true that the Kardashians aren’t going anywhere. They have enjoyed tremendous reality-show success, and it’s doubtful they need to worry about a TLC show stealing their thunder. Although, if it gets picked up for another season, Kim may want to learn to do this:

    Kris (i wish i was still a kardashian) Jenner. You are taking the chance of opening a BIG can of worms here. I do not know one single person who understands ANYONE HAVING ANY INTEREST AT ALL in your family. You are the definition of media whore and have passed that along to your little darlings.

  • http://yahoo ThePoster

    These people are poor…let them have their few minutes of fame. That family is honest, no phony crap. They’d give anyone the shirt off their back, not sell it on QVC!

    • Virginia wilson

      amen sister!

    • Laura

      I agree and as different as the BOO BOO family may seem. What you see is what you get. And teh little one seems to know who she is and she is happy with who she is warts and all. That is more than I can say for most people in this world. ANd when they (the boo boos ) say they don’t care what people think,they really don’t. And this from a mom who encouraged her daughter to do a sex tape for fame….

    • http://worldProNews Cleo jenkins

      Chris Jenner has nothing to worry about, give these people their 15 minutes of fame, they need the money, their show will not last. I personally do not watch it.

  • Betty

    At least these people need the money, to begrudge them their 15 minutes of fame is REALLY classless. especially when YOU have sold your soul to the devil!

  • TDC

    Of all the mothers in the entire world, this old pimp has some brass ones to criticize anyone. Since she has no shame as long as she is buried in cash I would say she did this purely for the ink. I wonder how long it will be before she produces her new granddaughter’s first sex tape.

  • Virginia wilson

    Dear Kris,
    You have no place even trying to judge the Thompsons way of life,at least Ms Thompson does not flirt with every man who comes in her sight like you, or put her business before time spent with her sick Mother! She spends time and a lot of love with her husband and family and I really hope,She does not ever “catch” your clas actions!

  • naneki

    That sure is a case of the Pot calling the Kettle “classless”. *smh*

  • Georgia Resident

    Though I don’t agree with most of what Kris Jenner stands for, I do side with her on this issue. I live in Georgia and these people are a true embarrassment to the state! They are a HORRIBLE representation of the majority of residents that live here. Of course we have our fair share of redneck types (as every state does), but for this family to air themselves is just an embarrassment. Shame on TLC and this family..

  • Dragonfly Debb

    If, in fact, she did say that…well now, maybe she should just go stand in front of a mirror and repeat it.

    This family gets between 2,000 and 4,000 an episode. Are you kidding me? Kris, really now. I think you need a hobby.

  • Karen

    Really? While there are a few startling parallels between the two families…pregnant unwed daughters, sisters that do things together, one particular daughter that has “star quality” Moms that function as handlers, Dads that are supportive while subdued….the key word is “reality”.

    The times they are a changin and Honey Boo Boo is the “reality” that most of america embraces NOW. Families embracing life from the other end of the spectrum with respect is the new chic. New concept NOT!

    So excuse you Kris Jenner for being so narrow minded and threatened! Get over yourself and come back to earth You are the one who has lost touch with reality!!

    • DREW

      Karen.. Great points. People forget that Kris allegedly was the mastermind behind Kim’s sex tape being “leaked”

  • Angie

    Well, talk about exploiting ur family for money??? I like Kris Jenner and all, but come on!!! She has no right to talk about this family at all. The only reason there is a Keeping up with the Kardashians is because of Kim’s porn video. POINT…BLANK…PERIOD!!! No one had even heard of these people except for LA socialites, until this video surfaced.

  • Bill

    Honestly,the article says there are “No qoutes from Kris herself” then why re we suppose to by into this article? A source ?? Again don’t believe everything you read or hear in the so called media.

    • Rich

      So you can learn to spell and write.

  • Connor

    I like it because there’s no brown people on it.

    • David Spears

      It’s worse…it’s White trash TV.

  • Rich

    Kris needs to shut up and take off her clothes for Playboy. She is just as hot as any of her daughters. Get her Hef.

    • http://YAHOO richard b

      u must be crazy!!!!!! she is a dirt bag and probably stinks!

    • PM

      Eww Rich, no one wants to see Kris Kardashian naked.

  • David Spears

    White trash…America has truly hit rock bottom.

  • christy

    Kris ingore her own mother who is sick… and she did ingore her own son Robert about his future job… She think about herself and daughters.. not right!

  • Joe Mudder

    Nobody else can get attention except the Kumtrashian clan. The air in Kris head says why does america watch honey boo boo. Why did anyone watch ur Ho family. It’s the Same Beeotch

  • betty

    DO I SMELL JEALOUSY??!! WTH does this FAME WHORE Kris Jenner thinks she is??! Atleast the honey boo boo family is the real deal and not fake and do not put on a show like the kraptrasians. America needs to boycott the kraptrashian asap by the way! This honey boo boo show represents how real Americans live, the father actually has a real job and their family got lots of love. Not everybody’s got it made like the kraptrashians! Their show is fake period! Greedy Kris Jenner wants to make all the money, Go sit down man!!!!

    • stef’nie

      well put =)

  • christy

    Kris always go out and party and flirt guys! left out bruce and kylie and kendall! Kris need to grow up and come first family!

  • Joules

    I just wish they would ALL go away, somewhere their rocks are getting cold.

    • stef’nie


  • stef’nie

    omG!!!! this is perfect! i can’t stand the kartrashians!…i don’t watch reality shows but i’ll watch honey boo boo if it takes the kartrashians off the air. what nerve of her! she is the biggest fame whore ever, no wait her daughter (kim) is. i can’t stand them.

  • DREW

    Here comes honey boo boo is way more entertaining then the Kardashians. No hate, but the Kardashians are little played out. Not sure why Lamar Odom would want to get involved with a circus like that, cost him his job with the lakers.

  • Rayray

    I can’t understand America’s fascination with Kris Jenner..

  • http://YAHOO richard b

    I cant stand Chris or any of the daughters!!!! KIm is a slut!!! Rob the only son – I have doubts about him also- why does he still live home? He needs to get a life and get away from all those women! So should the 2 youngest girls before their lives get screwd up also!!!!

  • Vicki

    And this is coming from a woman whose daughters are nothing but a bunch of over-paid hookers! Talk about classless! I don’t LIKE the Kardashians and I don’t understand why Bruce Jenner ever married that wretched witch (not exactly the word I wanted to use but it’s safe for prime time)!

  • Don

    Of course she doesn’t understand this, this girl though young keeps her legs closed unlike her and her daughters.

  • Tom

    Why do people watch either of these two??

  • kt

    Yes Kris…some people do not have to make a sex tape to become famous.

    • CriticXtreme

      The statement should have read: “Kris Jenner Can’t Understand America’s Fascination With Honey Boo Boo when the fascination should be on my fake family.” Honey Boo Boo and clan are some true stereotypes who I hope have their financial house in order to make a lot of money and ride this train wreck out as long as possible. Since Kris Jenner knows how to pimp her kids into undeserved riche$, maybe Honey Boo Boo should get her as manager.

  • Jackson

    Kris Jenner can’t understand our fascination with Honey Boo Boo? What a joke. Kris is just jealous because it is taking media attention away from her train wreck of a family. I am so sick of Honey Boo Boo but at least she is an obnoxious little girl and has an excuse for being rude at that age. What is the excuse for the behavior of the Kardashian children? They are mainly adults with the exception of the two new teen stars that Kris is grooming for their latest careers. I’m so sick of that family I could vomit every time they appear on television or in the media. I don’t care who Kim is sleeping with this week. I don’t care if Kourtney and Scott are together anymore and I certainly don’t care if Khloe is really Robert’s daughter or if Kris fooled around with someone else while she was married to him. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!! We need to tell that little troll Ryan Seacrest to take his production company and go away!

  • dmkennedy

    June Thompson is and uneducated but intelligent woman. She loves her family and enjoys and protects them. She has more class in her little finger than Kris Jenner has in her whole body. This is a real family, having fun with each other. Her daughter is probably the only child involved in the pagent world who will emerged unscathed by the experience. The little girl is also very smart, and she is real. I hope they drive the Kardashians and all the phony housewives off the air

  • PM

    Kris Jenner making a judgement against any parent, even Honey Boo Boo’s parents, is a joke. Kris must be mad because she finally sees someone that’s a lot like herself when it comes to parenting.

  • Melissa

    Hello Kettle, this is Pot. You’re black!

  • lynn

    All I can say to this, is at least Alana mom would have gotten off her butt when her daughter was crying. I find it very funny that when Rob got up from couch crying,it wasn’t you that went after him is was khloe. That to me shows me what kind of mom you are. I feel khloe is the only one that really cares about her bother,and has his back. You seem to be so proud that your daughter made a sex tape,because in your sick mind it was a way to make a dime right Kris. The Thompsons have so much more class then you will ever have. One last thing you don’t see your kids as your kids you see them as dollar signs.

    • Mary

      Agree completely!! Kris Jenner is a complete waste of time!

    • Lynn R.

      You have a lot of great points. I don’t agree with the whole child pageantry life and think it puts undue pressure–especially when the children are encouraged to take part in bad habits. Kris is by far a prime example of horrid parenting.

  • Itsme

    The fact that this show has that many viewers is disgusting. I came home one day and “Honey Boo Boo” was on, I couldn’t watch it any longer than 5 minutes, with their redneck hick speak (so bad they have to translate on the screen) The roadkill eatin, and the kids and pig screeching, its a disaster! But I guess thats what the viewers like about it. *SMH*

  • Mary

    How funny!! I can’t understand the fascination the people have with
    the Kardashians – would also love to know the educational level of the people who find these 2 shows fascinating.

    • http://webpronews cathie

      My thoughts exactly!!!

  • stephani

    If this is true, then I won’t watch Kardashians ever again. Not that I watch Honey Boo Boo, but it’s “classless” for anyone to call someone else “classless”…….

  • http://yahoo emtb531

    Does this mean that every American that watches TV can have an article about why they are not amused by the Kardashian clan that gets money for their reality show? They only watch Kardashians too see how stupid the rich brats are!

  • Marc

    Both families are classless but the Thompsons do not pretend to have class, they are real unlike Kris’ family.

    • Peggy

      I agree wholeheartedly. They are not putting on an act, they are real and who they are is what you see.

  • Allison

    OMG-is classless not making a porn video and exposing it on the internet and then becoming famous for having one of the world’s biggest a$$es??? Yes,pot calling ketting blak in every language in the world!!! I dont agree with the Honey Boo Boo family and what they do but OMG KardASSians-get over yourselves!!!!

  • Larry

    What is the matter with Kris Jenner – is a little fat obnoctious kid taking TV ratings from her and her Kardashians? Both shows should be canceled.

  • William

    Ummm Krisvthinks the family showcasing themselves on television for money is “classless”

    Dumb Ass your family does the same thing and has made millions through other endorsements because of it…..


  • IdiotBox

    WOW…….Kris Jenner is jealous of some white trash 5 yrs old who is getting more attention than her. Amzaing.



    Why Bruce Jenner could ever want to be around her I will never know. Khole,Kourtney,Rob and Kendal and Kiley would be so much better off actually having a mother then a monager.

    More people can relate to Honey BOO BOO whoever cause at least they represent a Family. Crude /Craze as it,there is a feeling they care for each other. They may not have a pot to piss in but there is LOVE in that house hold. They dont have to live in a ivory palace to know who cares for them.

    This annoys me were I dont even want to pick up a magazine or watch Keeping up.


    Lots of love,

  • http://Yahoo Trooper Tom

    Jenner is the last one to speak about being “classless” she and the rest of her media whoring trollops are far worse than this boo boo character

  • Ben

    Oh no!!! Honey Boo Boo is taking attention away from her daughters.

  • Patricia Barbour

    Well, well, well The pot is calling the kettle black!!

  • Sweetness

    I’ve never seen a single episode of either show. Never will.

    • SAMMIE

      Your not missing much KHOLE , KENDAL AND ROB are the ones to watch if you do what it.

  • Shelley

    I have had the displeasure of watching Hone Boo Boo. I find it sad to exploit little girls in pageants and bad behavior on tv. Moreso, to get paid for it. Some may find it funny, but it is child abuse. Let little girls be little girls! What is wrong with gymnastics, sports, and just going out to play. As far as kris Jenner, yes I watch their show, and I like Khloe and Rob. But, I was really turned off and so upset when Kylie and Kendall were so worried about their grades that Kylie did not want to go to school for a test she was not prepared for. Those girls should be going to high school and enjoying their teen years. If they want to work, let them do it in the summer. Then do it full time when they graduate from high school. Education needs to be stressed to all of them. I believe only Kourtney has a college degree. Kris, help Rob! Boys at times need more assistance than females. I feel so bad for him. He too, wants to find his place in this world. I am so sorry their dad is not around to mentor him. It seems that Scott can. It is also atrocious how they have no respect for their mon and curse at her and vice versa. Wow! How does Bruce deal with all that estrogen? Golf! Miss Kim, you need time by yourself to find yourself. Going from one man to another, please! A star on the Walk of Fame. No way sister! Do something positive to serve others instead of yourself. Take acting lessons and “earn” an Oscar. Then, we shall see. Enough said!

  • Marilyn

    Did anyone else read the word “source” says but not quoted from Kris?! yea another one of those I need to write a story because I have nothing else to write about..I dont think Kris is a terrible mom come on people we don’t really know them! but its the way that tv portrays her to be. And its not Americas fascination with them its the medias they claim that but I dont see people lining up for them its just a tv show who cares who doesn’t want to come from a hard days of work and watch people be dumb I dont care about both shows at all but this is a fabricated story if ive seen one. We are in a generation of jersey shore fanatics where being famous means humiliating yourself it sucks but it is how it is.

  • K

    I steer clear of anything Kardashian as the idea of a phoney self-admiring non-admonishing clan has little interest for me – only to hope for the eventual crash & burn disintrest of audience viewership. Unfortunately, you can’t get through Yahoo without something always Kardashian rearing it’s ugly head. This week a Here Comes Honey Boo-boo appeared in my family room – what can I say except there isn’t much on with the political conventions lately. At least Honey Boo-boo held my interest as to how some of our folks enjoy life. Move over Kardashian’s you’ve been Boo-Boo’d!
