Kris Jenner Insults Honey Boo Boo's Mom ... For Doing the Same Thing She Does

honey boo booLooks like the Mayans might be right after all. The world may very well end in 2012, because two of reality TV's biggest, most controversial stars are about to throw down. In one corner, we have Kardashian puppeteer/matriarch, Kris Jenner. In the other, we have ... Honey Boo Boo. If this is our future, guys, seriously, let's just hope the world is ending.

Kris Jenner -- you know, the woman who's made bazillions off of her children -- thinks that Honey Boo Boo's mother, June, is a terrible mom for exploiting her child. Also, she can't understand why the world is fascinated with the Honey Boo Boo family. Also, she thinks Honey Boo Boo's entire shtick is just a giant ploy to make money.

Apparently, Kris is yet to be introduced to the word "projection" in therapy.

All this Jenner/Boo Boo information comes from an unnamed source -- who also said, "To say Kris is not a fan of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is an understatement" -- so, take it with a grain of salt. But still. I wouldn't doubt there's some truth to this, as Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, for whatever reason, is a massive television success. (Fun fact: the ratings for Wednesday's episode of Honey Boo Boo matched the ratings for CNN's coverage of Bill Clinton's speech at the DNC. Stay classy, America!)

Look, Kris Jenner is entitled to think whatever she wants to about Honey Boo Boo and her mom -- Lord knows everyone else has their opinions. But seriously? The whole exploiting her child thing? The whole "ploy to make money"? Isn't that sort of the Kardashian mantra? Yes, Kris's kids are old enough to make their own decisions, so it's a little different, but beyond that, same difference. Kris may think of herself as "classier," but she's more or less doing the same thing June is.

I really never thought I'd see the day that Kris Jenner had something bad to say about anything having to do with reality TV, as it's the thing that made her and her family is what it is today. But I also never thought I'd see the day that I was writing about what the star of a sex tape's mom had to say about the mom of a 6-year-old girl who's famous for drinking a concoction of Mountain Dew and Red Bull.

I'm going to go to a museum or something right now.

What do think of this?

Yeah, it's the ol' "pot calling the kettle black." Maybe Kris is jealous Boo Boo is so young, her mother will be able to "exploit" her many more years than Kris can her girls. They're already getting long in the tooth.

When I heard a radio DJ spout off this "headline" this morning, I thought it was a joke- until I read your article! Kris is so incredibly self-absorbed and obtuse that it's not even funny. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!

Yes, they do have a reality show; however, that's not all that they do. She built her family's $65 million dollar empire by signing contracts and endorsments. The show was being filmed before the sex tape came to the public. Kim was already working in Hollywood as a fashion consultant. The Kardashians were already friends with stars before the show. 

Honey Boo Boo on the other hand is on TV from Toddlers and Tiaras. When I watch her, her family comes off as a bunch as nose-picking butt scratchers. By no means is it classy... (And yes, I know the Kardashians aren't the classiest people on TV either)

I don't like June either but seriously Kris needs a reality check. Its the SAME thing! At least (so far) June didn't help her teenage daughter make a sex tape.

This is ridiculous. Kris Jenner's girls are grown adults not children. She can't "exploit" them without their permission unlike the disgusting mother of "honey boo boo". This is comparing apples and oranges.

I don't find it hypocritical at all. All of Kris Jenner's kids were adults when she started managing them. Despite how they act now, they had normal childhoods. Alana is what, six? And she already has the same exposure. I'm thinking she's going to grow up to be like most former child stars are.

It took me a while to stop laughing. Really? Seriously? One poster here said basically Kris is jealous because June will be able to exploit her daughter longer and make more money. Along with that, Kris is afraid of being de-throned as the Queen Mum of reality TV. Yes, the Jenner gene pool is old enough NOW to make their own decisions. What about the 2 younger ones? I don't know their names because the only Kardashian I know anything about is Khloe. Recently a friend made a comment about people saying nasty things. As she said, this isn't a trait you should be proud of, or want to exhibit. Kris Jenner, you and your progeny should NOT be proud of how you got to be rich and famous.

So let me get this straight, kris, it is ok to exploit your daughters if you have class but if you are a"red neck" it is not ok.  Exploitation is exploitation wherever you come from.  This whole reality fame thing jut bogels the mind.  No talent involved.

My favorite part of this article was learning that ratings for Honey Boo Boo matched the ratings for CNNs coverage of Bill Clinton's speech at the DNC.
