Count Honey Boo Boo and her rambunctious sisters as one family that does not want to keep up with the Kardashians.
According to family matriarch Mama June, her and her four daughters have no desire whatsoever to emulate the most famous reality star family to date.
"My girls are not high-maintenance like them," June tells The Huffington Post, referring to Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian. "They prefer to play in the mud than shop for new clothes. My girls are not labels. My kids love knowing who they are and know who they are, so, no."
In fact, she claims that despite the family's undeniable fame, they don't even consider themselves "celebrities."
"We are just everyday people. We don't consider ourselves celebrities. We still have respect for people just like we did before. We have not let the fame go to our head because we are people people. .... I'm the same person I was six months before all this started. You just know where you come from and don't forget the people before all this came."
She also takes the time to address the show's many haters -- we're looking at you Adam Levine.
"People are crazy and what's so funny to me is the haters that talk about our show, they can quote just about everything," she says. "So those haters know every detail of our show and keep our ratings up just as much as die-hard fans. It's kind of funny, you hate our show so much, how do you know so much about it?"
