Jodi and Kevin with Radaronline

Here is the video. A second video was added Thursday. A third segment has been posted. Part four is now up.

And here is the transcript of Radaronline video: Jon and Kate - Marriage in Shambles

[The clip is obviously several short segments from a longer interview. Ellipses in the transcript (…) indicate pauses in speech, not words left out of the transcription from the video.]

Kevin: Six months ago, um, Kate came to Jon and said, you know, "Hey, it's over." And I don't think typically I would say this, but they're showing America that it's a thriving family and it's not what they're living. Back when we used to be around when they were filming, they would fight so incredibly much that the film crew would have a hard time getting fifteen minutes worth of decent footage out of eight hours of filming. It's really…it was horrible. It…some of the production crew came to us and said how they had, like, moral problems with how they acted and…

Jodi interjects: …what they were filming…

Kevin: …what they were filming, yeah, with the kids.

*************
Jodi: Jon is making some poor choices right now, but all the attention - all the media attention - is going to him when Jon has told us that he feels that Kate is also (whispers) a cheater.

*************
Kevin: Jon came to our door one day and told Jodi that he suspects it's Steve the bodyguard, and he feels that he's getting the bad rap but he feels that Kate's not being faithful either.

*************
Kevin: Although Jon has made some poor choices recently, he has talked to us about how he suspects that Kate has been unfaithful. Um, it's a horrible thing to talk about, but it paints the, uh, it just paints how bad and how different reality is from the reality show.

*************
Kevin: Kate and Jon, I just urge you to focus on what is most important. Please, do not trade your family and your marriage for fame and fortune.

Wow. Kevin and Jodi... THANK YOU for doing what is right.

nomorekonartists said...

Wow. That is absolutely crazy. I think they couldn't have picked a better time to come out and share their opinion, especially since the media is so focused on everything that is happening with Jon and Kate's marriage. I think that if Jodi and Kevin would have come out before and vocalized their feelings towards Kon's sham marriage and what type of people they are, that people would have called them nothing but jealous liars. It is honestly about time that they said something.

my9cats said...

Thank you Kevin and Jodie for speaking out for the kids. It must not have been an easy thing to do.
You both are a class act.

Vicki said...

WOW! This is certainly the end of the show. I hope that for the childrens sake, these two figure out how to be parents, married or not.

highondegrassi said...

God bless Kevin and Jodi for finally coming forward. They truly are advocates for those children. I'm sure it was a very difficult thing to do, but this situation is so out of control, they had no choice but to speak up. Kate is so evil and has no concern for her children. She never did. Her house of cards is falling.

Andrea said...

Thank you Jodi and Kevin!! You seem like such caring people. I applaud you for doing something to protect the beautiful children!

K.Barrett said...

I hope Jon, Jodi and Kevin write a tell all book about Mommy Dearest. I'll be the first to buy it! I feel sorry for Steve Neidl's wife...I wonder if she knew her husband waiting cheating with Kate the Skank?

ruthy said...

This is all unbelievable! I am so happy someone is finally stepping forward and telling it how it is! GWoP has known these two "money and fame mongers" would get caught in their lies and deceit. Thanks.

Muchsmartermom said...

Having family stand up the children is going to be so important. They will need someone to lean on for years to come. Their parents are pathetic.
Thank you Uncle Kevin and Aunt Jodi

BostonBean said...

Oh my goodness! After seeing this clip....Kate's empire building is OVER.
Everyone trusts Jodi and Kevin. They have been faithful to the Gosselins in the past, and shown a lot of love to those kids.
GOODBYE KATE

BostonBean said...

Yes, Kevin and Jodi.....we felt it was coming all along.
Thank you both for being stable influences in the lives of the kids.
Hope you will always have contact with those kids.

pinkdiamond611 said...

Thank you Kevin and Jodi, I sure you thought long and hard before coming forward. I always suspected something fishy why the producer "Jen" simply disappeared. Now we know. She knows too much. I am so saddened for those children. Their lives are much worse than I originally thought. A totally empty life.

RealMom said...

I think they probably came forward because of Kate's latest magazine cover and story. They have known things for a while now and it looks like they are coming to his defense because of the things they know. Maybe Jon won't speak up so they are. Putting both sides out there so to speak. Have you seen the People cover? Kate is posing like she is a covergirl or something. She is so self-centered. It must be her dream since she was young to be on the cover of a national magazine and she didn't care who she had to step on to get there, her husband or kids. Nothing will stop her.

BostonBean said...

I wouldn't be surprised if Kate tried to point the finger at Kevin and Jodi now as the reasons that she goes down the tube.
She will have to take the blame herself, after she gets a lot of counseling.

margojata said...

Enough is enough...this show needs to be taken off immediately and Kate needs to get her ass home and take care of her kids! Why kind of mother leaves small children for days on end?? No wonder Kevin and Jodi are calling her out publicly. She's a DIVA, not a mother.

HBailey said...

Wonder how the Goesslin's PR machine will spin this one? Can they? I wouldn't doubt it.

LisaMagooey said...

Thank you Kevin and Jodi for doing what is right for the kids!
Bless you!!

I wish there was a way you could have custody of those innocent children. They love you both so much!

Jon and Kate have ruined the lives of their own children and
their lives have been derailed so off track, I don't think there is a way back to "normalcy."

I believe Kate is just throwing Jon and the kids aside now that she has her, "fame!"
Sadly, Jon and the kids are part of that fame and without them she is nothing.

Isn't P&G one of their big sponsors on the show? I wonder if the big media outlets don't want to rock the boat because they share many of the same sponsors as J&K?
Hmmmmmmm....sad....sad.....sad...

I knew these losers were KON artist, but damn.....didn't expect all this other crapola to hit the fan...
WOW, JUST WOW!

Lisa

sammylee said...

What's Rachael Ray gonna say about "Kate the Great" now? She must feel like a fool now for giving this con artist the time of day.

Hmmm, what about Health Tex? Are they gonna kick the adultress to the curb now?

Wendy said...

Watching this footage made me cry. You can tell how genuine Kevin and Jodi are. I cannot judge them for coming forward. You can feel their concern. You know if it wasn't for this site Gosselins Without Pity, I would still be a strong supporter of the show. I shudder to think about how many people are still believing the lies Kate Gosselin is telling. Kevin and Jodi are pleading for Kate to stop the madness. People should listen to them. I really care about the Gosselin children and it's starting to scare me to think of the damage being done to them. The exploitation that Kate is allowing to happen is mind boggling. The question to me is: Why are people (tv, book etc) allowing this to happen to the children? Is money really that important to them? I think if any of them were honest, they have dealt with the ugly side of Kate Gosselin and they don't think she is great. They are just making too much money to stop. WHAT ABOUT WHAT IS BEST FOR THE CHILDREN? WHAT ABOUT WHAT IS BEST FOR THE CHILDREN?

trinityella said...

HOLY CRAP! IT'S ABOUT FREAKING TIME!!! We all have been waiting for this glorious day to hear Kevin and Jodi speak! I cant wait for more! What are the sheeple gonna say now?????

=^..^= said...

o.m.g.! wow. you could really see the discomfort on jodi's face, having to discuss these things. you could tell that neither of them wanted to be "telling all", but thank God they were able to put their discomfort aside in order to blow the lid off of this whole thing. i feel really bad for the family involved, having to watch all of this from the outside, because they are no longer allowed to be in the kids' lives. big hugs to kevin and jodi...stay strong!

potato chip said...

I only wish this meant the end of the show. Kate will find a way to keep the gravy train rolling. One way or another, and people (sadly) will watch.

She will never admit to any wrong doing. NEVER. People like Kate don't make mistakes, they are but victims of the people around them.

I hope the kids nanny is a strong and stable force in their lives, they need one.

Anonymous said...

Kate's abusive behavior toward Jon and the boys has disturbed me for quite a while now. With all these recent revelations, can't someone step in and help those innocent children? How sad and confusing for the kids that just a few months ago J & K told them they were renewing their vows because they were going to be together "always." Shame on you Jon and Kate!!

Ruth said...

As more info comes out on these 2 the microscope is really zooming in on the true picture. I've seen several articles today that have addressed the many freebies KON has received and also how often Kate is gone. One article says that she has been at 50 scheduled events since May 2008! Jon is looking better and better, taking the high road and also taking care of the kids while Kate is out whining to any and every camera she can.

=^..^= said...

and this truly opens the door. we all know who really penned "multiple ble$$ing$" if beth carson wrote HER story of her dealings with k8, that would STAY on the ny times bestseller list!!! go beth! team kevin & jodi!

jill said...

This is far from over! The show will go on...but just with Kate and the kids. There is too much money to be had...

DeeB said...

I hope Kevin and Jodi are getting paid for these interviews. If so, that would be such poetic justice!
I am glad they are speaking out. I hate, hate, hate the lies that Jon and Kate perpetuated whether with their show that was NOT the "realest reality" show on TV or whether it's Kate's recent lies. I know she thought she was ready for a talk show and was moving away (figuratively speaking) from Jon. If she gets her own talk show now it will have to be along the lines of Jerry Springer.

ROFL said...

OMG! OMG!

WOW.

Its what people here suspected all along.

WOW.

Moderators thank you for this website. You guys are awesome.

jill said...

Explains why Jen left. Now, if those kids are in danger...she needs to speak!

Danielle said...

If the Kon marriage has been over for 6 months, as Kevin & Jodi say, Did Jon commit adultery? They were technically "seperated" & he had every right to date.

I truly believe this was the "arrangement", but Kate just got caught by the media & is now trying to save herself.
Jon is probably pissed he was made to look like the villian in this whole mess!

UGH! said...

Jodi and Kevin's video still does not prove that K8 had an affair.

It does, however, describe just how bad things are in that house and how bad the "reality" really is.

------------------------

Potato chip,
I am with you. I hate to think that way, but someway Jon and Kate may just convince everyone that Kevin and Jodi are not telling the truth.

There surely are enough knot heads to believe all is well in Gosselin Town.

I hope I am wrong, but I don't think I am.

Laura said...

How interesting that even Kate's own family seems more sympathetic to Jon than to her. She truly is a piece of work...

To all the sheeple who are still defending them - it reminds me of the Jim Baker days. Those people refused to believe until even he came out and admitted it. Some people scare me. They refuse to see the truth.

Marie France said...

Thank God for Kevin and Jodi. They are saints. They had the kids' backs all this time and, I must confess, i thought they had given up. Kate has a way of doing that to people...
I almost hate to ask this - the GWoP mods do so much already, but -is it possible for you (or someone) to post a transcript of the radaronline Jodi and Kevin interview? Many of us have dialup and cannot play videos. Sorry to even think of asking you guys to do more work, but all of us suffering the pains of dialup would be immensely grateful! If you can't, it's OK - just thought I'd ask. Thanks!!!!!

NOMOREKONS said...

Go Team Kreiders. I have always beleived in what comes around goes around.

What a precious interview you two gave. I am sure it was difficult to spill the beans and even stick up for Jon for the poor decisions he has made.

I am sure there is nothing that Kate won't do to be in the limelight.

Jon needs to buckle down and start planning his attack on Kate to gain custody of those kids. I am sure the Kreiders and his family will help him.

notafan said...

Ever since Jon and Kate left their children who were sick with the flu with Jodi and Kevin to take care of (on top of their own 4 children) I have viewed Jodi and Kevin as saints. Thank God they have the best interest of the kids at heart. SOMEONE should, and it's obvious their mother doesn't.

I wouldn't trade places with Kate "the great" for all the tummy tucks in the world.

PATHETIC. Get home and raise your children!

Marie France said...

DeeB said...

___
I feel 100% certain that Jodi and Kevin were not even thinking about money! They are doing it exclusively for the kids. And even if they did get a little bit, then they deserve it.

Lee H said...

I agree with the posters who say that Kevin and Jodi are concerned for the welfare of the children. I also have a thought.... Because they have been quiet up until this point, I think that Jon has actually asked them to divulge the information concerning his and Kate's marriage. If, as Jodi and Kevin stated, there was a secret written agreement (contract) between Jon and Kate, I am sure that Jon would be contractually forbidden to divulge information about the marital situation. Jon has been hammered by the press and his wife for his escapades. Kate is the VICTIM. Jon wants the truth to be known and has asked his in-laws to convey the information.
Regardless, the children must be so confused and afraid of the future. God Bless Jodi and Kevin for putting the children first (as Kate always claims to do!)

Sherry Berry said...

The most tragic thing with this awful mess is the fact that the kids are now in the way for both Jon and Kate.

Eight little kids are in the middle of this. Kate wants to continue her career. Jon wants to get out.

Can Kate have a career without the family being intact? Surely churchs wouldn't want them, would they?

Jon would probably like to be a swinging single, or maybe he would like to be together with his new little sweety.

Such sadness.

This doesn't make me happy at all. It is sickening.

As hateful as both parents can be, they have probably told the kids they are to blame for all this.

Little kids do feel accountable for divorces in lots of families, even those that are not as mean as the Gosselin.

Poor, poor little kids.

konGOaway said...

Thank you Kevin and Jodi. Your love for the children was obvious to everyone that watched you with them. NOW is the time for Jon to step up and protect his children. HE is now the only one who can fix this mess and stop this insanity those children have in their daily lives. Come clean Jon, tell everyone what is really going on so your children can spend the rest of their childhood with loving family around them - aunts, uncles and grandparents who will help them through this. Please Jon, make this right.

Bicoastal said...

TLC's Laurie Goldberg has her own reputation to think about. Hard to imagine she'd be so stupid as to attack Kevin or Jodi's credibility. They're like Pollyanna and Andy Taylor sitting there.

I'd like to hear Goldberg explain how TLC lied and/or misrepresented this alleged happy "family" to sponsors to gain advertising dollars.

And Kate may have her own set of problems with the latest batch of suckers she and her agent[s] conned into contracts based on Kate's great "family values" appeal.

I'd be calling my lawyer if I were Ashely Furniture to demand my sofas back!

And goodbye Healthex; you really don't want to be connected with this psycho-broad, do you?

Lisa K said...

Yes...Thank You Kevin and Aunt Jodi! I am also hoping Jon may be on the road to doing what he needs to do... to keep his children safe.

Scruffy's Mom said...

Please someone throw water on Keight and melt her, and bury her flap of hair next to a pile of dog poop.


Thank you Kevin and Jodi for speaking out! The kids might have a chance now!

5/13/2009 2:28 PM



EXACTLY! Jen and all the rest of the crew except that one dude ( Mike? ). And that snide comment from Kate recently where she said the crew they have now is handpicked. The rest of them were probably sick of the charade and walked, or Kate tossed them for questioning her.

Kevin, Jodi, Julie....
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU
for doing what is best for Mady, Cara, Alexis, Aaden, Hannah, Colin, Leah and little Joel.
You speaking out is in their best interest and I am so glad you are still there for them.

Angie said...

As another poster said, it might be a good thing if Jon got custody of the kids and moved back into the Etown house so they could be close to Kevin and Jodi. Kate can just visit the mansion when she's not on the road and have all the peace and quiet she ever wanted.

Kate--You ARE the BIGGEST LOSER!

So TLC talked to Kevin and Jodi about the problems and still continued to film this farce. Shame on them! Crazy how the ratings are more important to them than the destruction of a family.

The whole thing in Hawaii was such a nauseating sham.

Thank You Julie, Kevin and Jodi--Thank God someone has the kids' best interest in mind. It must have been really hard to hold back this long.

Dunwoody Mom said...

So, Jen and Scott left because of "moral issues". Good for them.

And shame on TLC for going ahead with this farce. As far as I'm concerned TLC is just as complicit in the emotional abuse of the Gosselin children as their parents are.

gameover said...

So many things that I didn't believe that posters noticed before are making sense now. Mady's behavior during the CBS interview, Kate not allowing the kids in her room (since Mom and Dad don't share), Mady not wanting to be Maid of Honor at the vow renewal, why they had to prove to the kids they would be together forever (because of all the arguing),the red spoon...sorry for not believing everyone before! Wow!

Please Beth, come forward and help the children!

i_saw_red said...

DAMAGED GOODS! I can't wait to see how the new season is going to play out. The premiere is the 25th of this month, even though Perez said they haven't finished the 1st episode yet. I wonder if it'll be lies of happiness or the truth? I guess now that they're exposed, and all of their freebies are being printed for the world to see, they're done.

Lisa K. said...

Honestly this whole situation is so sad. I watched J&K plus 8 for a while but was put off by the increasing commercialization. When Aunt Jodi was booted off the show, I knew things were not as they seemed to be...Jon and Kate, wake up and realize these kids are EVERYTHING and money and fame (or notority) will not make your lives complete.

beachluvin said...

If the story about the "secret" contract is true....I wonder who "drew" it up. Is she so out of touch with her family that she communicates through contracts?

Jon needs to speak up now! It's obvious she is setting the ground to make him look like the cheater and the bad person in this relationship! I hope it backfires badly on her!
Those poor kids to have to listen to their parents fight like that. It's so so sad!

Johanna said...

And things just keep getting crazier. I totally agree with the above poster that Jon has something to do with Kevin and Jodi coming forward. Obviously, he has still been in contact with them, and they seem to be much more sympathetic to him. I think this is his way of getting his side of the story out, and I say Go, Jon, Go!! He is not perfect, but of the two, I think he loves his kids, and he has been the one parenting them. Kate loves fame and herself. My advice to Jon would be: Divorce Kate, and sue for custody of the kids. There is overwhelming evidence from both the show and now from more and more people coming forward that Kate is not capable of properly caring for her children. Jon could get half of what they have earned over the last few years and then get a job to support his family. Jon once stated he would do anything for his kids. Now is the time to prove those words. Please, try to salvage what is left of their childhood. Give them the dignity, respect, love and PRIVACY that they deserve.

Michelle said...

Surely Kevin and Jodi got paid for their Radar interview. Its well known that Radar pays for stories -- i.e. they have a contract w/ Octomom. Star probably also paid them for their story. I think they should have gone to a more reputable magazine b/c frankly, Star is bit suspect. At any rate, I do believe their story. I'm sorry that kate's own brother hates her so much he would sell her out like that. That shows you how much he is not on her side.

Daydream Believer said...

Good for Kevin and Jodi. Now we know why they need to film 12 hours a day. Not for the kids, but to get Jon and Kate not fighting. Those poor, poor babies.

Kelly said...

I feel so so sorry for the kids. I cannot imagine how humiliating it must be (for the twins, especially as they are old enough to partly understand what's happening) for them to have their parents' indiscretions played out in front of all the world. It's bad enough that the show catches the kids in their most vulnerable moments (bathing, pooping, screaming), but this is too much. If Jon and Kate had any love for their children, they'd have stopped the show after one season, or wouldn't have done the show at all.

Maggie said...

We are probably getting a lot of new posters here, so remember NO ANONYMOUS posters. I am sure we have left a few slip through today by accident. I am having to reject a lot of good comments because they are ANONYMOUS.

Thank you!

Why r they still 2gether? said...

Wow! I watched this video and
realized that Maddy's behavior makes sense now- she watched her parents fighting all the time and had to pretend things were wonderful for the camera...
How many years before she puts
out a book:

Maddy minus 9- happy at last!

RememberMe said...

I hope there's more video to post. I wish they'd talked about the effects on the kids more and less of just "Jon thinks Kate's cheating too". I have total respect for Jodi and Kevin at this point, but it seems that what's most important to me was edited out and what's least important was left in.

Fan of Kevin & Jodi said...

Kevin and Jodi,
Though it was a difficult decision to come forward - you did the right thing - and in the long run, those children will be better off because of it.

When you look at the big picture - you realize why you HAD to step in.

I'm proud of you!

-----------------

As long as what's stated is the truth, who cares if they were paid ? And, I seriously doubt that Kevin and Jodi care one d@mn about the $.

Also, I don't think Kevin hates his sister. I think he loves his nieces and nephews.

NV Mom of 3 said...

I'm not necessarily new to the site, but obviously out of the loop as to who Julie is. Please, who is she in relation to Jon, K8 - and where is her blog?

Thanks!

january said...

Finally, Kevin and Jodi come forward with some information that actually makes sense to the situation! I'm sorry but no matter how you slice it, it is absolutely not normal for a happily married man to be out at a bar with a 23 yr old female "friend" at 2am. When you compare the old episodes to the new ones it is so obvious how unhappy they are. Sure they have all of the material things they may have always wanted but it looks as though their relationship is horrible and they both look like pretty miserable people. It is pretty painful to watch. I always thought it was strange that they were renewing their wedding vows and kept telling their kids how mommy and daddy will always be together. Yeah, no kidding, that's what your first marriage was for. Most people don't renew their wedding vows to show their kids that they will stay together. There must have been some serious issues going on back then. It all is coming together now!

organizedblogroll said...

It would be great to get Beth & Bob's take on this. Willing to bet they'll side with Jon.

Also like to hear from the former production team!! Can you imagine how happy they were they got to go home EACH NIGHT!!

lookielookie said...

Oh my gosh... I totally believe Jody. I mean really.

VA mommy of 2 said...

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for stepping forward and not being afraid to let the public know what the hell is going on. Keep standing up for the those kids!! Now we just need Beth to come out of hiding and join w/ you.

On a side note though.... the shit has hit the fan.... i am curious to see what Kate's next move will be... ????

squatmunkie said...

WOW. That was great. THANKYOU Aunt Jodie!! We ALL see how bad Kate treated you. I just hope the rest of America can see it too.

Jon isn't the only "bad guy" here. Let's just hope that soon he comes out to tell his story too.

Fan of Kevin & Jodi said...

You know - with Kate on the road all the time - the kids are probably better off - since they are witnessing all the fighting and strife between Jon & Kate.

If you watch the body language between Jon and Kate - you can see he wanted OUT.

I blame Kate - I think she sold her soul to the devil & will die a lonely old woman.

Daner said...

Now it makes Jon's comments about being married to a 19 year old more telling. Just a jab to Kate

RobyninReading said...

Thank you for doing the right thing! It's about time someone speaks out for the children. They need family!

MK said...

Now the public will see the real "life experiences" Jon and Kate have provided their kids...

My heart breaks for those eight kids (and the dogs too for that matter).

squatmunkie said...

Imagine the fights these kids must have seen? No wonder Mady behaves the way she does, and that Cara seems so sad and depressed.

Thanks again Kevin and Jodie. Y'all are amazing. We all saw how bad you were treated by J&K.

We remember you watching all 8 kids with 6 of them vomiting and diarrhea. Along with yours as well. We remember the gum. We will stand by you.

BCarefulWhatUWish4 said...

I can only imagine how much it will mean to those children that their Uncle Kevin & Aunt Jodi loved them enough to stand up for them, hard as it must be.
Bless them!

----------------------------

Kate will once again give another interview with People Magazine. They seem to be the only magazine that glorifies her.

Anonymous said...

Well this explains the pre-emptive strike by Kate. It is quite evident that Jodie and Kevin are being truthful and fair about the state of the marriage. TLC needs to do the right thing if the parents are incapable of doing so. I must admit that I am disgusted and I think Jon deserves primary custody. Check Kate's PR schedule and see who really watches the kids and if he is out while the kids are asleep and they are in a safe environment so be it.

Reading news said...

After watching Kevin and Jodi's interview I think I might be clair-voyant. They state that six months ago Kate decided the marriage was over. On a recent post I said that I thought the marriage ended with the sudden departure from Elizabethtown and it was necessary to buy all the acreage so they could live separate lives without neighbors seeing what was going on. I also felt that the family was aware of this and that was why Julie suddenly stopped posting and took some of her blog down.

I do think, however, that Kate will come out smelling like a rose. Her type always does. I guess it is because she is one of God's chosen.

january said...

Remember on an early episode when Jon went running down the block for the ball and Kate was telling the kids "some day he'll slip away but not when we're watching"? I think that someday is today. The foreshadowing......

keithurbanlover said...

So, they have a contract that says Jon can be with other women???? WTF? Who in their right mind would allow that?

keithurbanlover said...

Any news on whether or not the show will air on May 25th?

2badsosad said...

So, Jen and Scott left because of "moral issues". Good for them.

And shame on TLC for going ahead with this farce. As far as I'm concerned TLC is just as complicit in the emotional abuse of the Gosselin children as their parents are.

I absolutely agree!! For TLC to knowingly stand watch and EXPLOIT the Gosselin children with no regard to their emotional and mental vulnerabilities for the purpose of maintaining a farce of a 'reality show' and ratings is absolutely unexcuseable!!!!

Harriet said...

keithurbanlover said...

A woman who wants to be or already is with another man.

iheartmyhubby said...

Just got done reading/watching interviews with my hubby and he asked, "So they don't have movie Fridays anymore?" LOL!

keithurbanlover said...

I bet if Jon sued for sole custody he would win. He obviously has his family and Kate's behind him and is still in communication with them. Also, think of all the evidence - all those so called "memories" Kate wanted to make are all on film. What better evidence than that? No judge in their right mind would give her custoday!

marypoppins said...

I think that Jodi and her husband are doing this in the best interest of the children.
I DO NOT believe they are doing it
for cash, 5 mins of fame etc.

I'm glad they are coming out to say that this whole mess is NOT ONLY about Jon's recent photos.

Whether Kate has been cheating or not, I guess that will come to light too.
But I can tell you this-if I saw Kate getting too friendly
with my husband or vici versa, I would accompany him on trips too.

The kids have break downs too easily. Aaden 's YELLING "get me a paper towel!" and Kate didnt even try to correct him.
Maddy and Cara's's behaviour screamed "help me"
Kate once said Maddy said that everyday was the worst day of her life and Cara looks depressed.
Alexis' sayng she was nervous- anxious/stressed maybe

When last have we seen a tup call Kate "Mom". Think about it. All her actions with them are mechanical, detatched, forced and fake, and now i guess staged

What a mess. Can Jon look back and pin point when he should have said STOP!- when there was still time to save the family?

Kate, i dont think she will ever be happy, have enough or be satisfied. As she said on Oprah-m there will never be enough money

I hope Kate does not have some type of break down- her fantasy life is about to crash head- on into reality.

nj2az07 said...

OMG-this is just-wow. To hear 2 credible people finally speak the TRUTH, not the nonsense that J&K have been spewing is just jaw dropping.
It's about time. YOu can tell they are saddened and probably as fed up as everyone else of the media circus.

Pink said...

Keithurbanlover said, "So, they have a contract that says Jon can be with other women???? WTF? Who in their right mind would allow that?"
____________________
The Hateful Greedy Kate. That contract was her way for Jon to take the fall for cheating on her. When in reality, it was Kate that was already stepping-out on Jon with Steve Neild, the bodyguard. Gee Kate, your evilness just continues to give me the cold chills.

I'm guessing Kate's contract also specified that Jon could never ever speak of their fake life/reality show to anyone connected to the media. But Jon is no fool....he is very intelligent, so he made a visit to Kevin and Jodi. GO JON GO!!!

VillageMom said...

Someone said, "They were technically "separated" & he had every right to date.A marriage isn't over until it's over... not just whenever the couple decides they don't looove each other anymore. In the eyes of God, they are married until one of them dies, so no, Jon does not have every right to date.

In the eyes of the state, the marriage is over when a divorce is decreed. That is when Jon or Kate are free to date.

NDmom said...

Kate, Jesus tells us that "the love of money is the root of all evil". It looks like the love of money played a large role in destroying your family. How sad.

From what I saw myself of Kevin and Jodi on the show, they were loving, caring family for the twins and sextuplets. My heart ached when Kevin and Jodi appeared to no longer be in their lives because Kate gave them the boot. I just could not fathom how Kate could call Jodi to treat her like a child when she was angry that Jodi had let her kids have gum. Who would do that on national TV?

Kevin and Jodi, I am sure there is so much more going on behind the scenes and it was not possible for you to come forward until now. Thanks for doing so, and I hope that you can reconnect with the kids who could use some kindness and love from stable adults/family.

Why r they still 2gether? said...

Do you think Jon already has custody of the kids? He is always
with them - Do you remember
the interview when Kate grabbed
Alexis and told Maddy to be quiet
and Maddy said they only had to listen to Daddy- also that Kate
should stop being her boss and
Maddy also said Kate was mean.
I'm sure there are many layers to
this story that will come out.
Why is Kate rarely around the kids anymore- did something happen?

"The most tragic thing about this awful mess is that the kids are now in the way of both Jon and Kate."
I agree. People who are saying that Kate should stop the talk show circuit and go home and raise her kids should stop and consider what they are saying.
Can you imagine how Kate is going to treat her kids if she is thwarted in carrying out her plans for a career and finds herself back home as a full time care giver? Hell hath no fury....

Kate is a LIAR! said...

I think it's only a matter of time before Jon spills the beans on Kate's secrets and tells his side of the story. For someone who just wants "privacy", Kate sure keeps her face in the media!

I have a feeling he just wants to end the show so that he can run off with the 20 somethin's without the harassment of paparazzi.
I think he knows the gig is up!

On a side note: When I think of that fame whore as a talk show host, a little puke come up!

Krissy said...

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU KEVIN AND JODI!

Say it ain't so.. said...

It would be very interesting to see if Kate and Mr. Gray will be in Michigan tonight at the previous schedulded book signing.

Judy said...

I am so glad they spoke out! Jodi obviously is in pain, that alone tells so much unlike other interviews we have seen.

So, Jen and Scott left because of "moral issues". Good for them.

And shame on TLC for going ahead with this farce. As far as I'm concerned TLC is just as complicit in the emotional abuse of the Gosselin children as their parents are.

does it say that in the article? Is that really why they left? BTW, when exactly DID they leave and is Jen still working for Figure8Films?

planey_janey said...

RE: Interview transcript -- it is below. The interview runs 2 mins 19 seconds.

I have to believe that Kevin and Jodi probably consulted with the family as well as Kate, as their speaking out may call attention to the other family members also, and it wouldn't be a surprise if Kate's sister, who was forced to choose between her parents and Kate -- by Kate herself, also said, "Tell it. Now is the time for the truth."

I saw the July 4th episode when the tups were 3, and it broke my heart when one of the girls saw Nana and said, "I find you!" You can't tell me these kids don't miss the positive influences in their lives.

Transcript of the Radar Online interview:

Kevin: Six months ago Kate came to john and said you know hey it’s over and um I don’t think typically I would say this but they are showing America that isn’t a thriving family and it’s not what they’re living. Back when we used to be around when they were filming they would fight so incredibly much that the film crew would have a hard time getting 15 minute of decent footage out of eight hours of filming. It’s really it was horrible – it um some of the production crew came to us and said how they had moral problems with how they acted and --

Jodi: What they were filming…

Kevin: What they were filming, yeah, with the kids.

Jodi: John is making some poor choices right now and all the media attention is going to him when Jon has told us that he feels that Kate is also … (hesitates, and then says almost under her breath as if it is painful to say) cheating.

Kevin: Jon came to our door one day and told Jodi that he suspects it’s Steve the bodyguard and he feels that he’s getting the bad rap but he feels that Kate’s not being faithful either. Although Jon has made some poor choices recently he has talked to us about how he suspects that Kate has been unfaithful. It’s a horrible thing to talk about but it paints the -- uh it just paints how bad and how different reality is from the reality show. Kate and Jon, I just urge you to focus on what is most important. Please do not trade your family and your marriage for fame and fortune.

Daner said...

I just realized how much emotion and pain Jody and Kevin seem to be in while Kate tramps all over and not even a tear. I can't wait for the View, they might get a tiny ounce of emotion from her.

Chris said...

I'm happy they are speaking up, but I wish they could have said more about the kids. I just wish this could all be over, that Jodi/Kevin/Beth (and J&K but that is doubtful)could sit down with 20/20 or Dateline and just get everything out in the open. The weekly headlines in magazines and papers could go away. Hopefully with the total truth out in the mainstream media the kids would get professional help and a stable situation.

just wondering said...

I see no possible way that TLC can air any new shows. I just don't think it will happen.

Jon is done and probably asked for help from Kevin & Jodi. Kate is scrambling for every possible PR solution, but there is no solution.

To air even one more episode would be idiocy at best and ridiculous at worst.

VillageMom said...

I'm growing alarmed at the near hysteria of hatred of Kate. Not that she doesn't deserve it, because she does.

But it seems to be letting Jon off the hook. All I have to do is remember Jon's treatment of the children during the Walk in the Woods episode. I lost all respect for him them.

Daner said...

KeithurbanloverLots of celebrities do this, I believe Mel Gibson and his wife had this deal for the last three years

Jana said...

I haven't even read any other comments yet, but I just watched the brief clip with Kevin and Jodi. You can see the sorrow in their faces as they talk about what a sham and a shambles the marriage of Jon & Kate is. Both Kevin and Jodi seem like very upright, honest, decent, caring people.

It must break their hearts to know that those 8 children are pawns, being used by Jon & Kate, and that they (Kevin & Jodi) can't even be in the children's lives, to show them what real love is.

Shame on Steve Neild! He and Kate are despicable. I will say this -- he deserves Kate, lashed around his neck for the rest of his life, screeching at him.

As to Jon, agreeing to some secret contract to keep the marriage "intact," and he gets to have girlfriends on the side -- shame on him.

How utterly low can two people go? There's nothing left of them to sell -- they've already sold their souls for a bit of money and a McMansion.

TLC - yank the plug on this show, NOW. NOW. NOW! And TLC -- for all the money those children made for you, you better put some funds into trust for each of them, untouchable by either Jon or Kate. A guardian needs to be assigned to those children, to protect them from their parents' greed and avarice!

Angie said...

Gee Kate--Now your mug will be published "Hither, Thither and YON"
for a whole new scandal.

Hope you have lots of time on your calendar for a dandy court battle.

zoey said...

_____________________________________
so, jodi and kevin claim kate said the marriage was OVer aprox 6 months ago.... that was just around this episode was filmed i think...
so jon got a little aggrivated on his walk in the woods that he probably didnt feel like doing but was forced to by evil kate. just saying maybe he had his heart ripped out just before this episode.

Jana said...

jill said...

Explains why Jen left. Now, if those kids are in danger...she needs to speak!
* * *
* * *

Jill, I could not agree with you more! I do not care if Jen or any other of the crew signed confidentiality agreements or not. It is their moral obligation (and that trumps any legal obligation) to step forward and do what they can to help those children.

The life those children have been forced to lead, forced to pretend and smile pretty for the cameras, all the while their mom and dad fighting constantly in front of them, sleeping with others, being husband and wife (and mother and father too) in name only -- it's time someone really stood up and spoke out for those childrens' sake.

If there are any people who produced, or otherwise were on the filming crew for this show and you are reading my words -- I am asking you to look in your heart, listen to your diety, and do the right thing by the children. Please, they can't speak for themselves.

Not THAT Kate said...

Don't you feel sorry for people who have just today purchased one of Kate's stupid books, or worse, tickets to one of her talks?

How worthless all that stuff must seem now.

lindahoyt said...

The kids do not deserve what their parents are giving them.

Jon warned everyone, when the very last thing he said, when Kate said the show would continue, Jon said, "we'll see".....

Kate, guess what? YOU DON'T GET YOUR WAY! Other people's feelings matter.

JuliaD said...

If the marriage is really so bad, and has been so bad for such a long time, is it really good for them to stay together? I know there are lots of kids involved, but is it really better for the kids to have two parents who hate each other live together?

From Aunt Jodi's sister's blog:

For the Children
I just wanted to thank all of those who have already voiced their support for Kevin and Jodi. They would not have spoken out unless they felt that it was absolutely necessary in order so save the Gosselin children from a horrific situation. I'm am sickened to think that Figure 8 will continue to film and TLC will continue to spin their lies in order to profit off of the destruction of a family. Kate will stop at nothing to get what she wants. She has a team of people protecting her and helping her spin her lies to keep this nightmare going. She is focused on her new "career" and she won't let anyone stand in her way, including her husband and children.

I'm hoping that the upcoming stories will help connect the dots and shed some light on why I came forward last year to voice my concerns for the situation. Although the revelations are sad, and in some ways unbelievable, the children are living a life that is much worse than will be printed in any publication.

I am hopeful that this is just the beginning and that more people realize that this child exploitation has to stop!

lindahoyt said...

Kate not only humiliated her husband for 9 years; she also betrayed him. 6 months ago, and recently, as she tries to paint herself as a "wronged" spouse.

Jon please call Greta and arrange to tell the truth. Show your "contract" and show the world the truth. Accept responsibility for your share of the blame, for exploiting your kids--and agreeing to this vile contract.

But get the truth out, so that your kids can be more than just "plus 8". They are people with feelings and the right to live their lives as normal kids and not to live their lives for the entertainment of others, and the fame and fortune of their parents.

Get your kids away from this woman who wants to exploit them at all costs. Even if you are doing things you shouldn't be doing; do it for your kids. Get yourself straightened out. You said you would do anything for your kids.

Prove it.

Louisiana Mother of 3

I am so happy that the aunt and uncle came forward at this time. It was always very sad to me to see how Kate seemed to belittle Jon. She has also seemed to really enjoy all the publicity. I hope the children can get the peace in their lives now that they may not have had in the last few years. Cheers to Kevin and Jodi!

BostonBean said...

johanna said it perfectly! Everyone can testify that Jon is the better parent! Everyone!

planey_janey said...

However this all shakes out, I am glad that the children will know at some point in the future that *someone* stuck up for them. I am hoping it will be a huge comfort to them.

Thank you, Kevin, Jodi and Julie.

january said...

There is no way that the show could go on if these two separate/divorce. How could the children be exposed to daily reruns of life when their parents were together? That is far too painful and would be horrible for TLC to do so.

Sal said...

Jodi and Kevin you are Heaven Sent. Angels in every sense of the word!
Thank you for coming forward to speak on behalf of the children. Don't let anyone try and threaten or bully you from standing up for the kids.

Jon now it is your turn. Stand up and TELL THE TRUTH. Ask Minor Consideration to help you with all your legal problems. Let Kate have "her career" and pay you child support.
Do it for your children.

Looks like Kate told Jon it was over right about the time she found herself a man.

Amy said...

Julie, Jodi's sister, has just posted a new blog. Team 8! Go Jodi and Kevin!

pretty is as pretty does said...

I am shocked for anyone to even questions the motives of Kevin and Jodie. Thank God they spoke up and at this point their words are even more powerful and needed now, more than ever before. To think now maybe someone will take a seoncd look at what type of parenting is going on behind those closed doors. Hopefully, maybe Gloria Alred or someone like her might call for an investigation. I think all of those children need to see and speak to a psychologist ASAP. There lives in front of the camera are truly unprecendented and who knows the long term impact on their well being. That independent of the obvious verbal abuse they and the crew have witnessed.

Amy said...

Julie, Jodi's sister, has just posted a new blog. Good job Jodi and Kevin! Team 8

Ladylou said...

Oh my goodness!!!!!
First off, isn't Jodi just so beautiful? She is more stunning now than before.
Now with the family saying what we have said all along... the cat is out of the bag. How can TLC even think to continue this charade of a loving family would be beyond me. I hoe Zondervan publishing comes out with an apology on toting Kate as someone Christian and we should all look up to her. I just feel sad as all of you do.. the 8 children are the crumbs left by the monster Jon & Kate plus 8 grew into. Had it not been for the "fame" the children would not be facing any kind of shame now. Their Daddy would of had to work a job and his integrity would have remained intact. Mom would still be the "take it or leave it Kate" but as in the first shows she did have her loving moments with he kids. Shame on all who had a part in the ruins of a young family where the greed and spotlight totally took over leaving nothing but broken people, young and old.

Who Did What First said...

I just cannot imagine what evil this woman holds in her heart. How in the world could she give that spiel at church's after offering her husband a contract for an open marriage as long as he continued to film. They are both possessed. I think an exorcism would be in order for both of them.

I cannot imagine who might end up with these kids if a divorce is decided on. I know I wouldn't want them as I think they are the most ill-behaved kids I have ever seen.

Thetruthfinallycomesout said...

Julie updated her blog. She said, "Although the revelations are sad, and in some ways unbelievable, the children are living a life that is much worse than will be printed in any publication."

If there has been physical or emotional abuse, isn't one morally if not legally obligated to speak to authorities regarding the children? I hope they are rescued and get proper counseling.

Jen and Scott left sometime ago so it had to be before all of the recent happenings. What do you think was meant by moral issues?

jon still sucks, but said...

kevin and jodi just outed you for the pig you are katie...hear that? "tick, tock, tick, tock" that's the clock counting down to the end of your 15 minutes...i am so pissed to STILL see tlc selling jon & kate crap on their site.

LisaNH said...

I've been wondering lately what happened to Jen Stocks? Hmmm, I wonder if she had enough and called it quits with this family. From what Kevin and Jodi stated about what the crew witnessed I would have to say that Jen ran, not walked away, from these too.

Good Grief said...

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Well this explains the pre-emptive strike by Kate. It is quite evident that Jodie and Kevin are being truthful and fair about the state of the marriage.

---

How do you know whether they are being "truthful and fair?" They've basically said that Kate is cheating because Jon told them he suspected it. How does that constitute "truth." There are only two people who truly know the state of the marriage, and you, Kevin and Jodi are not either one of them.

marsneeze said...

You know...we have all been calling this for a very long time. Longer than 6 months ago, that is for sure. I wish Jon had read some of these messages from this board for the last few months and he would have really been prepared for what was coming.

No matter what you try to portray to the public, if you have a messed up marriage, it is going to show somehow. We all saw how Kate was changing for the worse. How Maddy was acting out and how the more "help" they got, the worse Kate was acting. I noticed how violent the kids were acting with each other..not that siblings don't fight...but I saw how whiney and strained the kids were starting to look. Very sad.

These people are a trainwreck and we all watched and tried to send out warnings.... but they obviously wouldn't heed the warnings. Selfish Kate. Hen-picked Jon. Sad little kids.

***********************************
What's worse than that is they are still advertising them as America's favorite family. I believe the Hayes are quickly taking over the Gs spot there.

daisy said...

What worries me the most is how Kate will treat her kids, when this all stops. She was so mean to them, even when she "had it all". She is awful to all but Hannah. Those poor kids. Let her have her mansion all to herself.

lindahoyt said...

Kevin and Jodi did the right thing, and I hope others will join them in this intervention.

Kate is addicted to fame and fortune, she needs an intervention.

Maggie said...

Good Grief, I don't think the point of what Kevin and Jody did was about cheating. The point was about the children and how this show needs to end, and someone finally needs to put the children first.

That is a truth that is pretty self-evident. It has been pretty self-evident for a very long time. It just takes pretty drastic measures to get some people to take their blinders off.

Of course if Kate Gosselin make a video saying that she had cheated, there would be people that didn't believe it.

The Revolution Will be Televised said...

I wonder what Kon's parents must think of this debacle. Anyone that continues to give "love offerings" *RME* to this twitt is an idiot.

BOYCOTT TLC!! said...

Former child star Paul Peterson should be vocalizing his opinions about now. Dr. Phil, where are ya?!

jonandkatewho? said...

Kevin and Jodi did not say that the previous crew had left because of the fighting. They said that they had some moral issues because of what was being filmed, but that doesn't mean they left because of it. Maybe it had something to do with them going, and probably the Gosselins wanted them gone because they had seen too much and didn't like what they saw.

I remember how Jon has treated the kids in the past as well as more recently, and it worries me for those kids. Like many posters, I don't want to become involved in other people's lives to an unhealthy degree, but how can you help but worry about that many kids in that situation? My God, it makes me ill to even think about what they must have seen and heard at very tender ages. And remember, both parents took part in the fighting. It can't happen with just one person.

I guess I'm just saying that people seem to be looking to Jon to perform a sort of hero's role here and take the kids from Kate, but come on, do you not remember he isn't happy as a stay at home dad? So what about the kids? I think this just raises more questions as to their futures.
Sadly, neither parent really wants to parent those children. Where does that leave them? Maybe Jon will be happier in general without Kate and maybe that would help him to become a better dad, but I am afraid his drinking may be a problem too.

As for Jodi and Kevin, I truly hope they talk more and that they address the exploitation of the kids and the lies the parents were telling while collecting money from the churches they spoke at. People need to know so they don't take everything Kate says as being the truth. People sort of have a right to know they've been snowed. I don't know that any of us actually has a right to know about the whole mess that is this family's life right now, but I think it is important that Kate be exposed for being untruthful. Maybe it will help people to understand that it isn't always wise to make heroes out of people seen on television. And that what you see is not always what is real. It could serve as a lesson to some people, I suppose.

To me the most important thing is that people finally GET IT about the exploitation of kids.

If people keep talking about the Gosselins being replaced by this or that television reality family, because they appear to be more "real" or more "nice"...then they really don't get it. IMHO, I don't give a rat's ass if the parents are dead on perfect parents, it just is not healthy to raise children with cameras in their faces. It has gone way too far.

I'm like everybody else, wondering how this is all going to shake out. I will be really disappointed if Kate keeps on being allowed to spout her lies on television while people like Oprah and Phil listen to her and act like she is a domestic and parenting Goddess. I will really fear for our society if she is allowed to advance in her quest for fame with nary a scar from this battle. She has built nothing but a house of cards, and I would like to see it blown down simply because of what she has done to those kids. Maybe that makes me mean and nasty, but that's how I am feeling right now. I really don't think Kate's lies and her abuse of Jon and the kids should be rewarded with any kind of fame or money.

But you know what? It wouldn't surprise me if she emerges from all this with a talk show. It really wouldn't. And that is sad.

RayinVA said...

If the alleged contract is secret, how do Kevin and Jodi know what's in it?

Arieslikekate said...

I love how people on other blogs are blaming Jodi and Kevin for the marriage issues of the money hungry, fame grabbing, freebie grabbing JON and KATE GOSSELIN!

Arieslikekate said...

I wonder if it is TRUE that Kate wants to "go it alone" on TLC???

karma said...

I will be really disappointed if Kate keeps on being allowed to spout her lies on television while people like Oprah and Phil listen to her and act like she is a domestic and parenting Goddess. So true, people like Dr. Phil and Oprah need called out for exploiting people. They have grown wealthy themselves by exploitation. Kate Gosselin was given a judgmental voice on all their shows when Octomom was on the forefront, not one of them dared question the almighty Kate. They all exploited Octomom, but then held her in judgment.

Lauren said...

Its a shame that these kids a going to have a rough life(if they don't already) and end up despising these two bozos for screwing with their lives because they were greedy and didn't know when to quit. They always say that karma always comes around to bite you in the butt and it has in a major way for this family.

Jen K said...

I hope that people will reserve judgment on Kevin and Jodi and see where this all goes. I have no doubt at all in my mind that they saw all of the really horrible stories and figured that now was the time to come forward while there was massive attention.

Their concern for the children probably led them to believe that if they came forward now, they could help to slow down this train wreck of a life Kate is creating for her kids and help reveal some truth so that perhaps the show would stop production and they could regroup and focus on the kids.

If Kevin and Jodi are trying to get the show cancelled by revealing information, it's to help these poor kids who are stuck in the middle. I always thought Kevin and Jodi would be the ones who would step in at some point and I'm happy to see it is happening. Thank goodness because there are no close friends or family members advocating for those children. It's not their fault their parents are selfish, immature and greedy. They need help and fast.

XYZed said...

Kate's brother and sister-in-law gain nothing by exposing this sham. This makes them entirely credible. They have always had the best interests of those sweet children as their main concern and they continue to do so. Thank you, Kevin and Jodie, for saying what needed to be said.

Hannah W. said...

It's amazing to me that people still are fans of the show. I went on a fansite and they said they totally lost respect for Jodi and Kevin. Really?! These people are ridiculous! While I do think Jodi and Kevin should've talked to someone other then Star, I think what they did was a great thing. I really hope they quit the show. My true hope is that Jon and Kate get a divorce ( It's obviously needed ), and then Jon gets custody of the kids. Kate can do whatever she wants, I could care less about her.

Jessica said...

woooooooooow!

Jennifer D said...

so they decided this BEFORE Hawaii??

That explains so much. I feel so sad for those kids.

Somewhereinoh said...

I commend Kevin & Jodi for making a statement as I would imagine the decision did not come easy and IMO their intention is truly for concerns of the Gosselin children. As obviously, the interests and loyalties of Kate's current 'inner circle', ie. her publicist, manager, and security team are devoted to preserving Kate's image with absolutely no regard for the children.
Perhaps this sort of 'public intervention' will prompt J & K, to step back and re-evaluate where their primary FOCUS should and must be at this time. The children!

organizedblogroll said...

It's only a matter of time before someone steps forward to confirm that in fact Kate was cheating, too.

Lisa said...

Kate wants to become a talk show host? HA! A talk show host has to be empathetic and considerate, a good listener and someone who takes interest in the person to whom they speak- Kate has never cared about anything except herself and therefore would be a miserable talk show host to watch....

LisaLisa said...

Kate is soooooo mean to the kids ON camera- we can only imagine how much more meaner she is OFF camera- SCARY!!!!! I bet she's crazy mean and incredibly verbally abusive- (like 'GUM-GATE' exceptt ten times worse) wow- I would love to hear Jen's story in all this!!!! I'm sure she knows how it really is behind the scenes. ---poor kids!

Ravello said...

Bravo Jodi and Kevin Kreider for speaking out to help those poor children. Other unsung heroes are the owner and moderators of this blog, they have worked tirelessly for a year to help the Gosselin children. I am afraid to find out more details as I cannot stand to think children are suffering while a corporation (TLC Discovery) looks the other way. Shameful corporate greed is involved, does anyone have a conscious at that company? Please take action, cancel this show now.
I cried when I wathed JoelGate, Bear Gate, CupcakeGate and all the other episodes that showed Kate emotionally abusing her kids. Additional information will be just as painful if it involves the kids.
Someone asked who Julie was, Julie is Jodi's sister, there is a link to her blog on GWOP home page. Julie tried as best she could to tell the story last year.

fedup said...

It does not matter...Kon made the cover of people..
May this be her swan song..
Way to Go...bro & Jodi... the truth is out.

XYZed said...

I can't help but think of how phony Kon's vow renewal ceremony was. It was so obvious that their hearts weren't in it.

What makes me sad, though, is they did everything to convince their children that it was REAL. How many times did Kate tell her children the ceremony was arranged to assure them that their Mommy and Daddy would be together forever.

It's one thing to fool a gullible viewing audience, but to lie to your own trusting children is horrible. Those poor little kids must be heart-broken and so confused.

Holly said...

Kate still has a story to tell. Now she will be traveling around the country preaching about how to find the strength to work through marital problems or the terrible affects reality television progams have on the subjects being filmed. I bet she starts speaking out to the Hayes family warning them not to make the same mistakes she has made. This woman is a con artist and fraud. She knows how to spin a story and will continue to re-invent herself to remain in the spotlight.

I am very curious to find out if she is has/will attend the previously scheduled events.

Catherine said...

But look at this, Jon and Kate together are still trying to keep their gravy train going.

Kevin and Jodi are exposing the lie Jon and Kate still want to pull over on their viewers. Kevin and Jodi are the only ones that may be able to put an end to the exploiting of these kids for profit and fame.

Doing the right things isn't always easy...thank you Kevin and Jodi...the children are lucky to have you in their corner...

"Although the revelations are sad, and in some ways unbelievable, the children are living a life that is much worse than will be printed in any publication."

-------------------

This statement from Julie sent chills up my spine. K8 and TLC, hope you spend the rest of your days where the sun don't shine.
Jon, I hope you own up to your mistakes, hug your children, apologize to them, get some family counseling and move on with your life, WITHOUT KATE.

Jennifer said...

During the radar online video, when still photos of the tups were being shown, my eyes welled up. How sad their lives must be. And I can't even imagine what Cara and Mady are feeling. It really sickens me to think of the misery that these two have brought upon their children. As much as I loathe Kate (and oh, how I do) I sincerely hope that this is her breaking point and that SOMEHOW her eyes will be opened. It may not be possible, but I hope for the sake of those children that she can be humbled. It's their only shot at picking up the pieces of their lives.

I guess Steve is not home in New Zealand. These pictures were supposedly taken at the Baltimore airport on 5/12.

timetogokon said...

I love how people on other blogs are blaming Jodi and Kevin for the marriage issues of the money hungry, fame grabbing, freebie grabbing JON and KATE GOSSELIN!

-----------------

Nope, you need to rewind a bit.
First it was us "jellus haters". Then, it was the media/paparazzi. Now it's Kevin and Jodi. The sheeple are just like K8 - blaming everyone else. Pathetic losers.

lindahoyt said...

Kate orchestrated the vow renewal ceremony, to "show the kids that we will be together forever"...because Kate knew that the kids knew that the two of them were at each other's throats all the time, and were smart enough to see the truth of things.

Now, Kate says that she wrote the book so that her kids could see in print that their mom really loved them....why? Because she doesn't show them that she loves them, and she likes to travel and do other things much more than she likes the kids...and the kids are smart enough to know the truth of things.

Renee said...

I never thought they'd come out with this info but seriously, shit's hitting the fan and the kids are gonna need SOMEONE to turn to. Jon will probably usher them over to Kevin and Jodi's if he's already going over to their house anyway. Seems like Kate was doing all the cutting out of family/friends while Jon was still hanging on. He's not the best father but keeping those connections somewhat intact is one good thing he's done for his kids so... yay Jon?

dee has had enough... said...

Did anyone see the story they did on Extra? They showed some footage of the interview they did in Philly (after octomom was added to the mix). They showed to different clips...Mady screaming at Kate that she (Kate) was mean and another of Mady telling her she wasn't her boss. So different from the "cutsy" clips, ya know when the tups were little and Mady and Cara were younger. I really think that the tide has done a complete about face...I just really feel bad for the kids. I hope that Jon can get his act together and "man up"...those kids deserve a good life...even if it can no longer be a "normal" life. Thank you Kevin and Jodi. Some day, those kids will thank you too!

has anyone else seen this? It is a list of all of the freebies that the Gosselin clan has gotten- and I am sure it is outdated!

Unbelievable, another interview, pre Jodi and Kevin.

http://hollywoodinsider.ew.com/2009/05/kate-gosselin-o.html

HOW does K8 sleep at night, seriously ?

PR in PA said...

Wow..wow..wow!!! How things have turned! So sad. The poor kids. I hope this is the end of the show and I hope the sheeple finally wake up.

Thank you Jodi and Kevin!

Judy said...

I have the tv on while I am trying to catch up on everything and Twisted Sister's "We're Not Going To Take It" came on and made me laugh. It made a nice theme song to this blog!

Daner said...

oh that EW article is a load of bull.
I love this:
Do you have a name for your hairstyle?
KATE: It's my attitude! Everybody wants it. It's work. I have very, very thick hair, so it's not going to work for everybody. I've seen people come through the book line with thin hair and it's just won't work. My hair stylist gets calls from all across the country.
Whatever Kate!


Jon is just as bad as Kate but I think she is the real source of wanting this to go on, she just keeps telling him how they won't be able to "feed the kids".

I can only hope Jodi and Kevin keep exposing the truth. I am sure there will be dirt on them too but please weather the storm and keep telling the truth. I feel so bad for these kids!

Michelle in Michigan said...

KeithurbanloverLots of celebrities do this, I believe Mel Gibson and his wife had this deal for the last three years


___________________________________

Mel Gibson and his wife didn't have a reality show about their family and how they worked together. Big difference.

Level Head said...

Wow. It is finally happening. These two frauds are being exposed. Unfortunately the carnage in the wake of this exposure is going to be significant. We can only hope that it is not too late for those children and that their lives are not ruined forever.

Jon, divorce her, get custody, and try to move on. No more cameras, no more "special" trips, no more VIP treatment. These children need a dose of normal life and normal discipline. Oh, and how about some friends too.

This is SO sad and dreadful.

lindahoyt said...

"KATE: I don't ever want to go back. I'm very comfortable at this point in front of cameras, I love it, I go into a studio and I'm like, Ahhhh. It's odd, because I would have never thought that of myself. But I'm enjoying very much what I'm doing."

Do you feel it's always been an accurate portrayal of you?
KATE: Yeah, generally speaking. It is real and it all occurred, however, I realize that my dramatic self doesn't bode well with people watching me. In the early days, it could have taken us two days to film one episode, but in 22 minutes you would see every meltdown I had, so it looked like I was melting down constantly –- which happens, and I don't care. I really don't care that people see it. I am who I am and there's always going to be haters and there's always going to be lovers and that's just the way it is.

Do you have a name for your hairstyle?
KATE: It's my attitude! Everybody wants it. It's work. I have very, very thick hair, so it's not going to work for everybody. I've seen people come through the book line with thin hair and it's just won't work. My hair stylist gets calls from all across the country.

Do the children seem more camera savvy today?
KATE: We just went to the Smithsonian, where a different camera crew sat them on a stool and asked them interview questions and they answered them in complete sentences, and appropriately. And I was like, "Wow!" I had tears in my eyes. They've grown up, obviously, and they're getting better at it.

EW 'interview' obviously from March, I would say. Read it here

AnneMarie said...

I think back too to Hawaii. Beyond the free trip and coming up with a reason to take it, they came up with "so you'll know mommy and daddy will be together forever and ever." UMmmm children ASSUME you WILL be together forever and ever UNLESS you show them otherwise. What on earth kind of screaming and yelling and death matches did these kids have to deal with ?

I only dread to think it.

I fear it can only get worse too.

Another thing, while I cannot stand Jon, and while he IS the lesser of two evils parent wise, what makes ANYONE think he'll exchange his 19 year old carefree life to take on 8 kids???

NOT I!

Girly said...

Already the hatred against Kevin and Jodi from Krazy Kon fans has begun.
It just makes me sick.

Julie, Kevin, and Jodi, you will be in my prayers.

maria said...

So Jon is still on speaking terms with Jodi and Kevin, but Kate is not? I wonder if that means that the kids still get to occasionally see Kevin and Jodi. Any thought?

TPoV said...

WOW.

khannah said...

The show can now be renamed "Jon and Kate Plus Dates." Then immediately cancelled.

Sure hope the kids get some good therapy, stat. As a mom, I think what's happening is stomach-churning at best, obscene otherwise. And all for the children to cherish eternally in reruns, not to mention the laughing behind their backs at school for years to come. What a total train wreck. It's got to stop.

Mary said...

ALl i have to say is this:

Mady, Cara, Collin, Alexis, Aadin, Joel, Leah and Hannah:

I am so sorry. You wonderful chidlren should not ever have to go through this.

Mady and Cara I am praying for you that you can get through your school year safely and without any hurt.

Sextuplets, everyone is praying for you all as well. I hope you had a wonderful fifth birthday. You are a wonderful blessing to this world. I am so sorry for you

M said...

I just wonder what all of these churches feel now since they paid $25k a pop to hear the Gosselins spiel!! If TLC continues this travesty, I think it may lead to their downfall as well!!

He lives and works out of Maryland. It is on the company's website.

MamaJane said...

It's like The Emporer's New Clothes. Jon and Kate were strutting their stuff, thinking they are all that and so stylin' and thinking nobody would out them because they were way too cool to be outed. But eight little faces-- there's your irony, Kate-- told the truth, week after week, with their lost and sad eyes and their bewilderment at how to please and get attention from the emperor and empress of their pretend world, their fear and anger, their begging little faces, like "somebody please GET IT..." week after week telling the truth.
This blog and some media folks stepped up, but those eight little faces are the real heroes of this story.
And who are the villains, other than the delusional emperor and empress? TLC... The crew that didnt speak up... Family that waited too long to speak up... Sheeple who put them on a pedestal because the sheeple thought they were real... Like them... All of us, really, for tolerating such abuse by the media we bring in to our homes...
But those kids are the real heroes, and I just hope people are able to get close enough to them to do what their parents do not: affirm their feelings, tell them they were right and almost everyone else was wrong, and tell them they are brave and good and smart and none of this was their faults, even when j&k try to blame them, as they doubtless will.
Because there's nothing an emperor or empress hates more than being outed as buck naked at their own parade, except maybe eight little faces who tell the naked truth.

Pulldozer said...

I asked my hairstylist if Kate's hair is an actual style. She said yes, it's an "uneven bob" and it is popular. Not defending it..just wondered if it was even a style.

What's Normal? said...

I just watched the video of Kevin and Jodi and all I have to say is ....WOW!!! This video is so damaging. I am in total shock... I don't know why, we all saw it coming. Though I do not excuse Jon's behavior, I think Kate will be very very sorry. I think things are definitely much worse than even we can imagine.

Where is she tonight? Is she home with her kids?

honeybee said...

My heart breaks for the children.
My parents were great together, but when they did fight (and I guess no couple can't have any), I remember being frightened to death. I can only imagine how these kids felt and feel.

It's heartbreaking to hear that they have been watching their parents fight for so long...really.

Lisa said...

I wonder what Kate's response will be to Kevin and Jodi's comments..I can only imagine the spin. Is her bodyguard consoling her tonite while she is yet again away from her children? Shame on her and all her lies. I can only imagine the thousands of dollars it cost to fund the sham of a wedding in Hawaii and it was all a LIE..every sponsor should shun her, every book signing should be cancelled and god forbid Kate has the nerve to show her face at any church. I feel so badly for her kids who are not going to escape the damage her greedy parents have caused them. Bless you Kevin and Jodi for doing what is right!

wramblinwreck said...

MamaJane, what a beautiful tribute to the innocent victims of this debacle.

What's Normal? said...

Kate looks like a hoochie-mamma in the outfit with Steve. I bet you that red leather jacket costs over $500 and the love offerings paid for it. I just can't believe she is walking around like a prima-donna. It's floors me. No heart at all.

Aunt Chris said...

keithurbanlover said...
So, they have a contract that says Jon can be with other women???? WTF? Who in their right mind would allow that?

Someone who is with another man.

hinkle said...

stay classy kevin and jodi.

Aunt Chris said...

VillageMom said...
I'm growing alarmed at the near hysteria of hatred of Kate. Not that she doesn't deserve it, because she does.

But it seems to be letting Jon off the hook. All I have to do is remember Jon's treatment of the children during the Walk in the Woods episode. I lost all respect for him them.

But, let's not forget that there was turmoil in the marriage at that time and no matter how you try, when you are mad at the spouse, the kids can be caught in your anguish without you meaning to do it. I think Jon is the much better parent (I'm just talking about interacting with the kids, not any issues between parents). Kate is a phony.

Weird thing in the midst of all of this - last night I was watching the episode when Kate's brother-in-law was helping Jon paint the twins remade attic bedroom that God-awful pink color and I noticed that Kate, Kevin and (I think) Kendra all have spouses whose names start with Js (Jon, Jodi and Jeff).

Aunt Chris said...

And who cares if Kevin and Jodi got paid for this - they certainly never got anything from Kate and Jon!!!!!!

Falana said...

I love how one of the pro-Kate sites (can't remember which; they're all the same) headlines this story as "Jody and Kevin stoop to the Star's level" or something like that.

Talk about putting lipstick on a pig.

notamom said...

US Weekly has a poll asking, "In light of the recent allegations, will you continue to watch J&K+8?"

Vote and let our voices be heard!

Hambone said...

Why are there never any pictures of the kids? Are they ever allowed out of the Konpound? Are they kept in kennels until filming?

overwithKON said...

Thank God! Thank you Kevin and Jodie! You did the right thing, no matter how hard. I know you care about all of them, but you also know that those kids need more, and diserve a family.

Frankly this does make me happy, because I thought it was disgusting what Kate was able to get away with all the time. And I am so sick of her and her horribleness to everyone and people still bowing down! Yuck! But atleast the people that do not wear Kate blinders will see the light and at least root for the kids safety and comfort.

But on the other side of the coin is makes me terribly sad, I know what divorce is like from a kids perspective, and it is not pretty, even if the divorce is not bad. And you cant tell me that this will be a smooth sailing divorce. I truly pray for those kids everyday. I hope that they can find some peice now and their parents will quit selling them.

Thank you again Kevin and Jodie, and I hope that you did get paid, I know that doesnt matter to you, but it does to Kate, and I find it funny that she tried so hard to exclude everyone and now those people are the ones helping the kids!

Skraps said...

I'm grateful that Jodi & Kevin stepped forward. Of course, allegations will come forth accusing them of being paid for their info. They love those children & did what they see is necessary. KON can still save their marriage & family. It's amazing that even though we're all strangers - we are showing a measure of love for those children & may they finally one day be protected & cared for by their parents.

machinegunsmom said...

I love that classy Jodi, she doesn't want to say a bad word about anyone...I actually couldn't even tell what she whispered until I read the transcript but I got the gist of it. Ummm...has anyone seen the picture of Kate with her bodyguard where she's in a leather jacket and a miniskirt? Does she know how old she is? Who is she trying to fool...

Are there STILL pro-Kate sites in the midst of all of this garbage!?

cdnmom47 said...

Thanks Jodi and Kevin for finally telling what we've suspected for a while now.

What saddens me, though, is that Kate is going to project herself as the VICTIM. Poor me...Jon cheated on ME...Now I'm DEFINITELY going to have to have my talk show 'cause I'm going to have to support all these kids!!!

....And guess what...people are going to fall for it!!!

grrr

My wish is to NEVER SEE THIS WOMAN ON THE AIRWAVES AGAIN!!!!
