Reality television viewers have a new favorite family to entertain them and the Kardashians Momager, Kris Jenner, is none too happy about it! Honey Boo Boo’s Thompson family has clearly stolen the spotlight from the upscale money making machine that Kris calls a family and she is said to be absolutely furious. She is disgusted (or jealous of) by June Shannon for putting her daughter Alana through beauty pageants and says that it’s horrible because June is only doing it to make money off of her child! Radar Online has more on Kris’ pot calling the kettle black tirade,
“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. Kris especially has a strong dislike for June, claiming the beauty pageant world is vile and that June is a bad mom for ‘exploiting’ Alana in that way. Kris think it’s all a ploy to make money, and says she sees through it and thinks it is absolutely disgusting.”
Say what you want but this redneck reality show scored 2.9 million viewers last week. In other words more Americans tuned in to watch Honey Boo Boo than The Republican National Convention! That says quite a bit about our country now doesn’t it!
It’s no wonder Kris is fuming. She has spent years trying to groom her children into celebrities. Every scandalous moment and every misstep has been publicly aired in order to line their bank accounts. Kris had created a well-oiled machine and now within a few short weeks people would rather watch the Thompson’s go to their favorite department store which is in fact a dumpster on a dirt road! Forget the upscale shopping that the Kardashian’s do, fans prefer to watch the redneck’s tear apart a dumpster!
