If it seems like the entire country is in love with Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, think again. Kardashian momager Kris Jenner is terribly upset with Honey Boo Boo (a.k.a. Alana Thompson)’s mom June Shannon for
stealing her thunder exploiting her family for fame and profit. So upset she’s planting tabloid stories about how upset she is!
According to RadarOnline‘s “sources,” Kris Jenner “believes that June is a horrible mom for putting her daughter through beauty pageants” and “thinks she is exploiting 7-year-old Alana to make money.” “She thinks the Thompsons are classless, unlike her family” the source continues, “and can’t understand why America is so fascinated by them.”
I will tell you why, Kris Jenner. Because unlike your nipped and tucked band of tacky aristocrats, June Shannon’s family is real and hilarious. And as for the financial argument, there’s no comparison to be made between a family that survives on coupons accepting a lucrative television deal, and an already wealthy family wringing every last drop of money and attention out of its daughter’s sex tape. Are child pageants are a little bit gross? Sure. But are they anywhere near as gross as building your reality TV empire on the fact that half the country has seen your daughter’s asshole? I think that’s a question that answers itself. And I will take Mama’s burps and farts over the Kardashians’ idea of “class” any day.
TEAM HONEY BOO BOO.
