Kris Jenner wants to manage Honey Boo Boo?

Kris Jenner and Alana 'Honey Boo Boo' Thompson

Hey, remember how Kris Jenner said that Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson‘s mom June Thompson was “classless” and claimed that she was exploiting her daughter by forcing her to be on reality TV? Well, Kris really hopes you don’t, because now she’s angling to manage Honey Boo Boo and her family, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. You know, because when other people go on reality TV, it’s exploitation. But when Kris does it … well, actually, it’s still exploitation, but at least Kris is getting a cut of the profits so she doesn’t care. Hollywood Life reports:

According to a recent report in Star magazine, Kris is trying to convince the Thompson family to meet with her to discuss her big plans for them. “Kris realized that they could be a gold mine,” an insider tells the magazine. “The Thompsons don’t really have any professional representation outside of TLC, and Kris thinks she can get them some serious endorsements and more money from the network. They’re getting a fraction of what Kate Gosselin got.” But after calling June ‘classless’, will she get the chance to redeem herself? Knowing how shrewd Kris is, they will soon have a special called The Kardashians Meet The Honey Boo Boo’s.

So the way I’m reading this is, “Kris Jenner wants to die by hillbilly.”

Kris: I know you guys are making $15,000 per episode, but how would you feel about giving 10% of that to me?
June: You called me classless. Now I must end you.
Honey Boo Boo: Snorlax! Use Body Slam!
Kris: *Splat*
Honey: It was super effective!
