She’s one to talk

Kris Jenner

thinks the mom on “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” is exploiting her daughter.

Take a moment and let that sink in.

RadarOnline quotes an unnamed source as saying the Kardashian matriarch is not a fan of TLC’s next big thing, featuring 7-year-old Alana Thompson

and her family.

“Kris especailly has a strong dislike for

June (Shannon)

,” the source reportedly told the site, “claiming the beauty pageant world is vile and that June is a bad mom for ‘exploiting’ Alana in that way.”

Wonder of wonders

Allan Heinberg

, a producer and writer on “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The O.C.,” “The Gilmore Girls and “Sex and the City,” is bringing Wonder Woman to the tube.

says Heinberg is writing a script reportedly called “Amazon” for the CW, which would focus on W.W. as “a young, budding superhero, rather than a fully formed defender of liberty.”

In other words, “Smallville” with a teenage girl.

Longtime Stargazing readers may remember that just a year ago

David E. Kelly produced a “Wonder Woman” pilot that was rejected, and “Avengers” director Joss Whedon

tried for years to make a Wonder Woman movie.

Vamping it up

Speaking of super women, a new

trailer for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2” debuted this week. In it, Bella ( Kristen Stewart) tackles a mountain lion, and Aro ( Michael Sheen)

looks like a guy who’s taking his love for My Chemical Romance a little too far.

‘Before’ and after

Movieline reports Richard Linklater, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy

have filmed “Before Midnight,” their sequel to “Before Sunrise” and “Before Sunset.” The first two films captured the romance of Celine and Jesse, in their 20s and 30s. “Before Sunset” earned an Oscar nomination for adapted screenplay in 2005 but lost to “Sideways.”

Say it isn’t so

After nine years of marriage,

Amy Poehler and Will Arnett

are separating.

The breakup was first reported by Us Weekly.

Poehler and Arnett have two sons, 3-year-old

Archie and 2-year-old Abel


Their personal lives may be in turmoil, but professionally, both are on an upswing.

The 40-year-old Poehler, who became famous on “Saturday Night Live,” is up for an Emmy for lead actress in a comedy series for “Parks and Recreation,” which returns Sept. 20.

After his breakout role on Fox’s “Arrested Development,” Arnett, 42, now co-stars with Christina Applegate on the NBC comedy “Up All Night,” also returning Sept. 20.
