“The Cosby Show” supermom PHYLICIA RASHAD has opened fire on KRIS JENNER – blasting her as a “shallow and vulgar” gold-digger AND a horrible role model.
“I don’t know mothers who act like that,” Phylicia recently told talk-show host Steve Harvey. “Do I really want to watch that? Is this what I want to do with the moments of this life?”
The still-gorgeous 64-year-old star played a far different type of mother for eight years on the Emmy-winning sitcom. As attorney Clair Huxtable, she portrayed an ideal modern mom who lovingly cared for five children while excelling at a demanding job.
But she sees mom-of-six Kris as just the opposite!
“She feels Kris represents everything shallow and vulgar about Hollywood,” an insider told The ENQUIRER. “Phylicia believes women should teach their children to be mindful of social issues and the Golden Rule – not sexy clothes, bling and multimillion-dollar contracts.”
Phylicia, a mom of two who now plays Dr. Vanessa Young on the new NBC drama “Do No Harm,” constantly refers to Kris as “that awful woman” and ridicules the family as the “KarTRASHians,” revealed the insider.
Phylicia also believes that Kris sacrificed the most important job of her life – being a mother – for the love of fame and fortune, said the source.
Kris, 57, catapulted her three daughters – Kim, Kourtney and Khloe – to reality stardom, but their rise has been marked by scandal.
Kim made sordid headlines with a sex tape as well as a “Playboy” pictorial that her mother reportedly pressured her into doing. And Kris’ own shocking memoir was a tawdry tale of divorce, infidelity and jet-set indulgence with late hubby O.J. Simpson dream team lawyer Robert Kardashian.
In the latest scandal, Kris and her Olympic hero husband Bruce Jenner are embroiled in a messy divorce, as The ENQUIRER recently revealed in a bombshell world exclusive. The source says that the whole distasteful scene alarms Phylicia, noting: “She fears the Kardashian family’s shallow lifestyle gives young viewers an unreasonable view of the world.”
