Looks 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?
