Is Kris Jenner trying to one-up daughter Kim Kardashian? The Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch who promotes her daughters' flesh-baring antics has once again promoted one of her own. Shortly after Kim posted bikini photos of herself during a second honeymoon she and new hubby Kanye West recently enjoyed in Mexico, Kris posted a new bikini shot of herself.

Now no one wants to grow older, and in the Hollywood circuit it's apparently perceived as some sort of tragedy. But normal mothers allow their daughters the glory of looking young and beautiful--and yes, even sexy--without trying to compete with or usurp their spotlight. Not Kris Jenner. She's front and center in the media baring her body, posing for photo shoots sans her underwear, and strutting her stuff like she was 25 or 30 years old. Granted Kris looks positively amazing for her age--she is 58--but come on, Kris. Let's get real here.

So, for those who need to see what Kris has done, let's start with one of Kim Kardashian's bikini shots.

And now check out the bikini shot Kris Jenner shared via Instagram.

Not only is it sad that Kris feels the need to one-up her daughter's honeymoon bikini photo, she often behaves like she is Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian's ages. Fortunately she hasn't regressed to Kylie and Kendall Jenner's ages quite yet.

How would a normal young woman react if she saw her 58-year-old mom one-upping her on social media platforms--in a bikini, nonetheless. She would likely be aghast, embarrassed, and even a little bit concerned.

Alas life is a little different in the world of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians family where the women talk about their private parts as though they had personalities all their own, and sharing butt shots on Twitter or Instagram is a normal part of daily life.

What's your take on Kris Jenner and her bikini photo? Is she living vicariously through her daughters or does she think she is as young and desirable as society says they are?
