Kris Jenner Denies Slamming Honey Boo Boo, 'I Don't Know Who She Is!

13 September 2012

Earlier this month, Kris Jenner reportedly slated Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star, June Shannon for exploiting her daughter Honey Boo Boo - real name Alana- on their popular reality TV show. The reports went onto to suggest that Kris was getting anxious about the show's popularity over her family's show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

However, it appears as that the matriarch of the Kardashian clan said and did no such thing after telling E! News that she doesn't even know who Honey Boo Boo is.

Revealing that she never criticised the young star and her mum, Kris said:

"I would never criticize her, because I don't even really know who Honey Boo Boo is."

She added: "I've never seen the show."

With one controversy dealt with, Kris has found herself in another after she and the Today Show faced backlash over the decision to air their interview with her instead of taking a moment's silence to remember those lost in the 9/11 tragedy.

Revealing that the star is "furious" with the backlash she has been getting, an insider revealed to Radar Online:

"Kris is a big supporter of the troops and she’s very upset about this. She had absolutely nothing to do with the decision to skip the national moment of silence on 9/11 and suddenly she’s in the middle of it and it’s her face being shown on TV while it’s being discussed.

"She isn’t saying so publicly but she is furious. She’s angry the show put her in this position. She had no idea that she was speaking during the moment of silence.

"She has always been such a strong supporter of the troops and now she’s caught in this mess and it’s NBC’s fault, not hers", the insider added.

It's always Kontroversy with the Kardashians!
