Kris Jenner interviewed Beyonce on "Good Morning Houston?"

No, Kris Jenner did not interview Beyoncé on channel 13's "Good Morning Houston," that was Lisa Trapani Shumate

Lisa Trapani Shumate has been a lot of things in her life.

She's been a longtime television executive, journalist and host, but I bet the Houston Public Media Associate Vice President at the University of Houston/General Manager has never been called the Kardashian's Kris Jenner.

At least that is what the internet is apparently calling Shumate according to E!.

And it all stems from an early 1990's interview with Beyoncé, Shumate did as a host on abc13 KTRK's Good Morning Houston.

"The comments were so funny and I’ve heard from so many people," Shumate told "As you know, the facts are the show was Good Morning Houston and co-host Don Nelson is also in the clip. I was expecting my daughter which explains the over sized jacket someone commented on."

The Jenner doppelgänger internet investigation started after Beyoncé's father, Mathew Knowles, posted a #throwbackthursday that showed an 11-year-old Beyoncé in 1992 being interviewed on channel 13's Good Morning Houston with fellow Destiny's Child singer Kelly Rowland for their then group Girls Tyme.

It seems his social media followers immediately thought Shumate, who went by Lisa Trapani back then, was Kris Jenner.

"Beyoncé’s response was so sweet and so true-'If we just keep practicing...,'" Shumate added. "Her hard work paid off. That’s the takeaway for me. Turns out when you put the names Kris Jenner and Beyonce in the same story, the internet goes crazy. Once it was confirmed the 'lady is not Kris Jenner,' the excitement died as fast as it started. Lol!"

Actually after thinking about it, Shumate and Jenner do have some things in common. Besides running television entities, they also have being authors in common.

Earlier this year, Shumate released her book “Always and Never: 20 Truths for a Happy Heart."

A perfect gift this holiday season for the Jenner Shumate fan in your family.
