Hmmm...not really sure how I feel about this. I'm glad they're talking, but is Star the right publication? I don't know much about the gossip mags - what does everyone else think?

highondegrassi said...

OK, that's enough of this crap. KON needs to stop this BS now and someone needs to get those precious children out of this situation! I'm not surprised Kate is cheating with the bodyguard, but a contract for an open marriage? WTF! These two clowns should have to pay back every penny to every church that gave them a dime. This is sickening that they run around spewing Christian beliefs. FRAUD!

Anonymous said...

Wow that teaser was great. And I do hope that J&K drop their quest for fame and fortune to focus on family and marriage.

margojata said...

I hope the STAR gave Kevin and Jodi big bucks. They deserve it for all the crap they've been through. Jodi is so awesome, I hope she gets the kids when the Courts take the kids away from these losers.

Right On said...

I think it is about time and long overdue. I know that with family their is a fine line. Kate and Jon have crossed that line and it is time for the family to speak up and get Kate committed. She obviously doesn't spend anytime with her children. Even today she is flying out of town to pursue HER career. Her actions speak louder than any words that fly out of her mouth.

Kate do it alone! Yeah right!

morningsun said...

Hello Kate??? Karma's calling! Did you really think you would get away with selling out your kids. You deserve everything you got coming to you!

Charlie Rose said...

What makes me sick besides the obvious that she has ruined 8 beautiful children's lives for her own selfish reasons (fame and fortune) but that one day she is dissing the magazines and media and the next day she appears on THEIR cover! Can someone say PSYCHO!

Annies said...

God bless you Kevin and Jodi.. I am sure you will get criticized somewhat over this but we know you are doing it for the kids... As a local we all know here in Berks County that Kate's claims that One parent, Jon is with the kids while she is constantly away from home are false.. How can he be home while he is running around town constantly, not just the nite life but during the day also. Those poor kids are going to be real messed up when they are older. The twins are already acting out. Don't stop speaking the truth. Now I wish the real story of Beth's departure would come out. Kate won't slow down with her ventures as apparent with the new Healthtex deal. She will continue to gain fame with more endorsements, probably a show of her own and whatever else ALL IN THE NAME OF THE KIDS. "All I do is for the kids" waaaaaaa.

K.Barrett said...

Everywhere you turn the media is reporting something on these two scammers. WHAT TOOK THEM SO LONG??? This awesome blog has been trying to get them to listen for months. Good job GWoP! Pat yourselves on the back for bringing KON down!

Ridiculous Parents said...

Anyone who deliberately ruins kids lives deserve all the bad crap that comes their way.

No excuses for their behavior.

If I were the family, I would be meeting with attorneys and get these children taken away.

The children probably could care less about Jon and Kate at this point. They spend very little time with them anyway!

Laurie said...

Oh what a tangled web we weave....it's easier to tell the truth than to lie. When you lie you need to remember what your story is, when you tell the truth you know what your story is. It's hard to know what to believe any more with these two and I'm glad people are stepping up to the plate to talk about them and I don't know that this is the publication that I'd have done it with. The plot thickens and I will buy a tell all book!

Daner said...

I thought Kate wanted to deal with her marriage in private and now she talks to People?

Also, people are saying they are doing this because the DVD, Book and new season...if that is true it is sick. The poor kids must be so confused even if mommy and daddy are really separated.

Theresa said...

Just out on People.com

She's embroiled in a public scandal linking her husband, Jon Gosselin, to another woman, and Kate Gosselin tells PEOPLE in its latest cover story that she and her spouse have been privately struggling for months.

"I don't know that we're in the same place anymore, that we want the same thing," she says quietly. "I've been struggling with the question of 'Who is this person?' for a while. I remember where I was the first time I heard her name. It's one of those things where you can try to make it go away, but there's blaring, red flashing lights."

The name to which Kate refers belongs to 23-year-old Deanna Hummel, whose brother later claimed she'd been having a months-long affair with Jon.

For Kate, who has referred to her husband as "my balance, my strength and my stability," to now consider a future apart has been heartbreaking but not impossible. "You can't imagine yourself in a certain position when all this first happens, but you can do it over some months," she says.

"It's a lot like when I was first pregnant with the babies, and it was pure shock and denial. But over time I imagined six cribs in my house, and six car seats. When your mind is ready to go there, you can accept any number of scenarios."

Kate does have hope, however, that her marriage can be saved. "I will never give up hope that every member of our family can be absolutely happy again," she says.

For the complete story on Kate and Jon – including how they're weathering the scandal and what their eight children think – pick up the new issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday

Praise You In This Storm said...

I haven't watched the show in 18 months and am proud to say I never contributed to these two scam artists.

I agree with the other poster who said

BRAVO to Keith and Jodi and any of the Kreider family who put their necks out on the line for the sake of the children.

honeyhush said...

Does this mean Zondervan, Walmart, Health Tex, P&G, Kmart, Whirlpool, Gymboree, Vtech, Fisher Price and whoever else, are FINALLY going to kick these con artists to the curb? I sure hope so!

What's Baby Mama gonna write about now that her Queen is losing her throne?

seasidebreeze said...

I agree Jodi and Kevin should be doing something. Not sure STAR is the right place to go, but maybe now more publications will approach them or they will go on some talk shows. If people see Jodi talking, they will really take this seriously. She was a big part of the show and well liked.

tallblonde said...

You know - if she goes the "solo Mom with 8 kids" route & cuts Jon out of the picture, from then on, all the money earned from the exploitation of the kids will be "Hers - ALL hers...!!!"

samcarter said...

Wow. Just...wow. The Gosselin's problem isn't that they had a show; the Roloffs have had a show as long or longer, and somehow they've managed to stay intact and for the most part out of the papers (Matt's DUI aside).

Their problem is that Kate's decided she's a marketable brand; she decided to try to spin her show into an industry like Rachael Ray's or Martha's (gag). Books, advice, product lines. She wants attention. She's a narcissist. She decided having lots of babies would get her attention, and now she can't get enough. She knows that the show was largely popular because of the "cute" factor of the little babies and toddlers, but the kids are getting older, not as adorable or compliant, so it's time to make KATE into the marketable product.

Ugh.

Niki said...

I'm no fan of Jon but it's sick that Kate will stomp on ANYONE in her quest for fame and money...including the father of her kids.

She has been willing to sacrrifice her marriage and her children's happiness for money.

It's disgusting.

Becky said...

Dear Kate,
Since I fully believe that you read these blogs when you're (ahem) alone at night in your hotel room on yet another promotion trip of some sort, let me tell you something:

Despite what some people may be telling you, alot of people don't "love you" anymore. They are seeing what is an increasingly pathetic attempt to create some sort of celebrity off the backs of what is a truly sad, sad situation.

Nothing about your current behavior matches what you say ("We're handling it in private"...really...since when is People private)

Here's what I'm afraid of. Since you only surround yourself with people you pay-they will tell you ANYTHING you want to hear, anything you need to be told to keep the show (trainwreck) going. THEY only get paid when you get paid. So of course they don't have YOUR best interest at heart....they have their own wallets to think about. The people who do want what's best for you are the people who were discarded a long time ago.

Kate, your turning into a mockery of yourself. You know how everybody thinks "how did people like Brittany Spears and Michael Jackson get so weird?" You know how? By surrounding themselves with yes-men...people who will say anything to keep the gravy train going.

Kate, it's time to exit from the public arena you've created for yourself as gracefully as can be at this stage. You've overstayed your welcome, and I'm afraid there's nobody left to tell you so.

Good luck. Honestly.

alana said...

Hmmmm... the worm turns.

When two people have made a mess this huge, it doesn't get cleaned up and sorted out overnight. It took months and months to screw it up and it will take months and months to fix it.
How SELFISH Yawn and Take are for enmeshing their children's lives into their UGLY LIES.

Our LIE is our show
And our show is our LIE.

There is finally some HOPE for the children to be happy; the possibility of a "normal" life is closer than it ever was. I just hope there's still enough money left to pay a skilled child psychiatrist for some long term therapy because the damage IS done.

BMWoP said...

Jodi and Kevin ( and Julie )...if you are reading this

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

You are doing a wonderful thing for the G kids and they will thank you, too, when they are old enough to understand what their parents did to them.

God Bless you guys!

Commit Kate Campaign said...

I don't think Keith or Jodi had a choice in this. They did appear on the show in the beginning but it didn't mean they were willing participants in the FRAUD. I believe all of this nasty business started after they left the show. They would have every right to sue the Gosselins for the exploitation of the children.

Kate Gosselin needs to be committed.

At Last said...

I don't think this is a ploy to up their ratings. I think that Kate and Jon are so incredibly ignorant when it comes to the big leagues that they screwed up what could have been a very nice thing for their entire family!

But they kept pushing the envelope until it got out of hand and once they gave Kate some leeway, she was off and running to the races regardless of who she strampled on in the process.

Right On said...

I wonder how soon the tv tabloids will have people speaking out against te Gosselins?

Inside Edition, Extra, Entertainment Tonight...get your game on! Get fired up!!

And all you people who ignored this situation and buried your heads, shame on YOU! Oprah, Dr. Phil, Ellen, Bonnie Hunt, all you suck ups...shame on you for ignoring what was presented to you for a year!!!

Goawaykate said...

I am glad that Kevin and Jodi are opening up, however I wish it was iwth People, or on the view, or larry king or soemthing more reputable. I think that going to a "tabloid" makes them appear less credible and honest, when they really are. PLEASE kevin and jodi, PLEASE do a reputeable show appearence, or people mag to up your credibility. I wish TLC would do a special on all this drama and NOT talk to john and Kate, but talk to the family and the neighbors and then say.. buh bye....

NahnCee said...

I'm confused. Don't you actually have to - you know - DO something to have a career? What has Kate ever done besides have a herd of kids and then bully a lot of other people into taking care of them for her?

What, exactly, is Kate's "career" supposed to consist of?

KGS said...

No offense to anyone but how can you believe this. I mean cmon it is star magazine. Yes we all know there are pictures and rumors but I do not believe anything in a magazine such as Star and well People sometimes to.

Grits98 said...

Hello everyone,

I have been reading this blog for a year and have appreciated all of your insightful comments. Yesterday, I emailed TLC begging them to show better judgment than J&K have shown and to please cancel the show for the well-being of the children. Believe it or not, no reply from TLC. I'm so sorry if this link has been posted before, but it's such a great article about the J&K fiasco on another blog that I love.

Hope you enjoy it!

Grace in CA said...

Well, I'm kind of bummed Kevin and Jodi chose the Star. Not a real reputable publication--more of a gossip rag. Almost would have been better if they had just written a statement and placed it on a blog, for free. So many people covering the story, it would have been picked up and run with by the news media. I think it would have carried more weight in the eyes of the public if they had not been paid for their side of the story. I do believe the information but wish they had made better choices about how to release it to the public. The Star leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

In years to come, they could have told the Gosselin children they did have their best interest at heart by telling the truth about the situation and they were not just in it to make a buck. Can't really say that now after selling their story to the Star. Something for them to consider in the future if there is ever more to the story....

Pauper Princess said...

Hello all! New poster here.

I think this entire thing is disgusting. While I don't condone what Jon has (allegedly) done, I can't really blame him for it either.

However, what Kate is doing is NOT "dealing with it privately". She's trying to salvage HER image, the h3ll with everyone else's (Jon, children, family - whoever).

I miss the original charm of the show, seeing an average family dealing with an extraordinary blessing. I stopped watching after the Utah ski trip episodes - the magic was gone.

I really feel for these little ones. I just want to hug them all. They are close to my oldest child's age, and I can just imagine how she'd react. I wouldn't want to hurt her in any way. Does Kate not think about anyone else or what? Nevermind, I know the answer...

Lala said...

I'm conflicted. I like Kevin and Jodi and am glad they spoke out, on one hand. On the other, it is just nauseating that this all has to play out so publicly. It must be true that Kevin and Jodi spoke to Star otherwise could they not sue them?? If they did, I have to believe what they say is true based on their character. Those poor kids. I'm afraid it's going to get worse before it gets better. The twins will suffer, but hopefully the tups will at least be spared the full brunt of this situation and things will work out for the best.

All the snarkiness aside...it is really a sad state of affairs(literally!).

timetogokon said...

Hmmm...not really sure how I feel about this. I'm glad they're talking, but is Star the right publication? I don't know much about the gossip mags - what does everyone else think?

-------------------
Sadly, I agree. I hope, hope, hope that Star is not the only publication to have "exclusive" comments from K/AJ.

LB said...

Remember Kate stated that she was not a celebrity and that was not what they set out to do as she was making the media rounds 'to address rumors of an affair' after Jon got busted in his car? That she was just a wife and mom? She claimed they were dealing with it privately. I don’t remember which interview that was. So what is she doing on the cover of People magazine? On top of the media circus she went on and so quickly too. That just brought more attention to them. Isn’t that what celebrities do? It seemed she made a complete 360 degree turn around and put herself on a national magazine. This is not dealing with it ‘privately’. Now their children will be horrified when they hear about it in school and other places. She must know that this was the best way to get pity and sympathy from the mass public that way and she is using this for her own benefit, nothing more. I think this is the worst way possible to ‘save’ a marriage.

Kate is not great! said...

This is just out of control!! hmmm, so much for "we are getting remarried to show the kids that we will be together forever" crap.

MIss Chris said...

Oh my gosh... somebody please post the full article! It is great to finally hear from Aunt Jodi, if it's true.

Nancy said...

I am glad also that they are speaking out but like others I can't figure out why it's in the Star. When I first saw this mentioned and saw it was Star I thought it wasn't really them but just a joke. A lot of people will not believe it just because it is the Star.

Having said that I will never forget the episode where they kept the kids when I think Jon went for his hairplugs. Her and Kevin watched all those kids and their own and they were all sick. She showed so much compassion and patience and was so different from Kate.

Daner said...

New Poll on UsWeekly - Go and vote NO!

In light of the scandal, will you still watch Jon & Kate Plus 8?

Dor said...

Praise God!!!! It is about darn time! Now....will Beth talk to...those are the only credible people I would believe.

And yes...they should have to pay back every red cent they stole from the people that gave tot he love basket.

The jig is up!!!!

I too hope that Kevin, Jodi, Beth, and others get the message out somehow that this mess needs to stop. I'm sure they have been quiet hoping that the kids are insulated and spared as much as possible. But now all bets are off so maybe they'll speak to anyone to get it to stop and limit any future damage in their lives.

As for, People, Larry King, etc. being 'reputable'. I used to think so but I now tend to believe that the 'reputable' media will publicize anyone with a hot story and that they appear to be puppets for PR firms. As for TLC and corporations, they are making it clear that people don't matter, only money. It's sad when the companies that have made names for themselves are losing their 'reputations' to those companies that don't have the same reputations but are willing to expose lies. What a role reversal!

MorganfromWV said...

Wow! Thank you so much for speaking up Kevin and Jodie! Now hopefully more of the family members will come forward and let the public know what exactly is going on! I hope Beth and Bob speak up next! I really hope someone in the family tries to get custody of those poor kids. The enviroment those children are living in is soooooo unhealthy!
I really hope TLC yanks this crap off tv soon!

JJ28 said...

I can NOT even believe what is going on with Jon & Kate! They're in every tabloid magazine now and getting more and more fame. I wouldn't be surprised if this was all planned to get $$$. Contracts for an open marriage? They're going to milk this "perfect family" act even though everyone is miserable. I'm sure the kids are suffering through J&K's fights and hearing about affairs.

Remember when Jon & Kate Plus 8 was a small show on TLC about a family with sextuplets and twins? What has it turned into now!? Wannabe celebrity parents living it up while the kids are stuck in a McMansion with nannies.

But without a doubt, because of all this controversy and press, the new season premier will be one of TLC's highest rated shows ever. Especially with TLC trying to get Jon and Kate to talk about the controversy and affairs.

bflohockeygirl said...

Wow.

That's all I can think of to say after reading that.

Sasha222 said...

poop..please meet fan

ShisoandRice said...

FOR ALL YOU PEOPLE BITCHING THAT ITS IN STAR...

All the so called reputable media sources are all in bed with the PR companies. Do you not get that?

happy now? said...

Seriously (im not being snarky) you guys should be thrilled now! I mean this is what you have been striving for all along with this site. The demise and fall of Kon. Personally I am thrilled about all this, but what will happen to this site when they are finally out of the spotlight and the show is canceled? (which will happen)

sharonay said...

If Kevin and Jodi have no contact with the Gosselins, what recent and reliable information could they have?

itcouldhappen said...

Those of us who respect Jodi and Kevin will believe what they say regardless of where it's printed. If there is proof that it's actually from them, what's the difference? People is a PR rag; they only print the squeaky clean version of events peddled by PR firms. They probably wouldn't print anything Jodi had to say anyway - it might limit their access to Kate.

The people who will criticize Jodi and Kevin for "airing dirty laundry in public" and "looking to cash in" will feel that way even if they interviewed with a mainstream magazine. Funny that they will (and already are) disparage them for the same thing they laud Kate for doing.

mary710 said...

First time blogger, although I've followed this site for a long time. Thank you Mods for managing this site, especially during the past couple of weeks.
It should now be clear for everyone (sheeple) that Kate and Jon will do whatever they want, and can get away with, for their own selfish purposes. I really don't care a whit about either of them. Like all of you, I'm so concerned about the children. Their parents have abandoned them to paid strangers - lots of them. When their parents are "together", they fight and live in separate parts of the house. Anyone who knows anything about children understands that they are very perceptive even though they may not understand the entire story. They are also helpless to change the situation, so often they blame themselves for their parents marital problems. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to realize how angry and hurt they must be.
Jon & Kate: just stop for a minute and think about what is going on with those 8 children. You are their role models for how to be a mom/dad, how to set priorities and resolve problems, choosing their own life partners, etc. What are you teaching them with all of this ugliness?
TLC and the sponsors: in light of everything that has been/is being revealed, is this really the type of show you want to be associated with?
Sorry this was so long. And many thanks to Jodi and Kevin for risking their privacy for the good of their nieces and nephews.

VillageMom said...

People magazine may be in bed with the PR reps but they are still far more reputable than the likes of Star magazine. Do you think that if a good source like Jodi and Kevin were willing to talk to People, that People wouldn't publish it?? Ultimately People wants to sell magazines. The best way to do that is by using more sources than just the stars' PR team.

Anonymous said...

Now that this has hit major magazines, this whole scam needs to be sent to all the investigative news programs: 20/20 Dateline, etc. Not the ones who just cover the BS like Larry King and Rachael Ray and the little crappy talk shows, but the ones that are much, much bigger and can rip them a new one.
Remember sponsors for Octomom pulling out as soon as the shit really hit the fan with her? I'm hoping that will happen here too.

Jennifer said...

I am disappointed that Jodi and Kevin chose to speak with Star, but I also wonder if People has a deal with Kate. I can see Kate agreeing to do interviews with them under a contract that only allows People to publish Kate approved articles.

Don't Shoot the Messenger said...

Don't be putting Keith and Jodi down for "outing" the Gosselins. So what if it is the Star or People, would it be more credible or more true if they were on Larry King Live, the same person who called Kate "noble." Please. Just because they are coming forward doesn't mean they need to be persecuted by the masses. They are letting the truth be told and that is what we all wanted to hear for the sake of the children.

Again BRAVO Keith and Jodi. I am sure it was a very hard decision to make because of your own children. But something tells me YOUR children will be just fine. :)

ClevelandRocks said...

If the Star is good enough to believe when it's got pics of Jon and the girl in his new car, they are good enough to believe when Jodi and Kevin speak to them. Can't pick and choose when we believe the magazine is credible and when it's not. They are working for their story, unlike People which is just running any crap Kate and her publicist feed to them.

kidsfirst said...

Oprah, Dr. Phil, Larry King, People magazine all the "reputable" outlets make big money by exploiting people. They don't want to rock the money boat so of course, they will back the Gosselins' spin machine. "People" magazine is a PR tool for celebs.

Melissa P. Gentry said...

Right On Cleveland Rocks. ;)

Personally, I would like Kate's new show to be how she is committed in the psycho ward and how she learns to be human again.

VillageMom said...

I didn't believe Star magazine when it first reported Jon's fast car and fast woman... just like I don't believe them now when they say that Jessica Simpson is pregnant.

I'm glad that Kevin and Jody are speaking out but it sure smacks of financial gain from a tabloid rag.

dobzy said...

I thought Kevin and Jodie's silence up until now was very noble. Now they talk to STAR magazine! Something just isn't right here. I don't know what it is but it just feels wrong.

Lee said...

I have been reading this blog daily for as long as it's been around as well as many others regarding the Gosselins. I have also read everything posted on Aunt Jodi's sister's blog as well.

I must (somewhat embarassingly) admit that I do watch new episodes of the show mainly because it is kind of like driving past a fire or auto accident, you just can't NOT look at the tradgedy of it!

I am not by any stretch what is often referred to as a "sheeple". I believe Kate is greedy, self-absorbed and has truley lost sight of her family in favor of fame and fortune.

All of this being said, I honestly do not beleive for one second that there is much (if any) validity to the STAR mag article. This is not a reputable publication and if you have read the aforementioned bolgs, you will notice the stark similarities including direct quotes and accusations from the blogs in the article.

While it may be possible that the single quote from Kevin and Jodi MAY be valid, I tend to believe this may be the only thing with any merit in the entire article.

Please don't be too quick to beleive this to be true. It seems like a lot of copycat garbage to me.

STAR is jumping on the bandwagon to boost sales and I'm afraid that all of us commenting and "reporting" on this blog may be their number one source of information.

Things that make you go Hmmm said...

All this media attention (positive or negative) is bound to result in what TLC and Kate really want -- RATINGS.

I implore everyone on this board. PLEASE do not watch a single second of Season 5. As much as you may want to watch the train fall off the tracks, we cannot support these con artists in any way, shape or form. If you have to watch it, rest assured it will be on You Tube the very next day.

Do your part to get the kids off the air. Don't watch the show!

The Truth Will Set You Free said...

I really wish everyone would just be patient and stop criticizing the avenue that Kevin and Jodi took to begin what they need to do to save the children from this terrible situation. This is just the beginning!

Unless you have been in a similar situation, you have no idea how this industry works. They did their research, and the truth will be told.

There is more to come, so please be patient and I'm sure a lot of your questions will be answered as more is revealed.

I've put some of my old posts back on my blog for those who didn't have a chance to read it, and I will be posting some sort of update over the next few days. I'm not going to repost all of the details that happened with Jodi and the show. The focus needs to stay on the children, and THEY are the reason that I spoke up last year. I think the recent events will help fill in the gaps that I wasn't free to discuss back then.

Thanks for all of those who have voiced your support for Kevin and Jodi and thanks to everyone on this blog for your concerns for the children.

Ms.Peach said...

Hey, National Enquirer EXPOSED John Edwards. Stop dissing Kevin and Jodi for using Star. The Today Show, Larry King, Dr. Phil, Oprah, all kissed the Kon's you know what. I'm glad family finally spoke out and I don't care what magazine they use.

Bravo, Kevin and Jodi.

Texas said...

This all makes sense now. Star was the first to report about Jon's affair. They probably got this from Kevin and Jodie. Julie probably stopped talking on her blog because Jodie was giving information to Star and getting paid quite well for it too. I had supported Jodie, but I no longer will. If whe wanted to talk, there were much better places and ways to do it. I guess the feel they were getting Kate back.

I bet Beth is the only person who never sells out the Gosselin children.

Ravello said...

Kudos to Kevin, Jodi and Julie (The truth will set you free) for sharing the truth. Katie Irene is going down, finally.

I hope Walmart pulls the new contract, Zondervan should cancel the book tour and the cookbook, TLC should abort the summer season of KON, etc etc etc. Wake up sponsors, you have been duped.

KON needs to divorce, Jon needs to get custody of his kids and keep them the hell away from Kate. He is far from perfect but I have always said he loves his kids.

----------------------------------
I wasn't "BITCHING" so I'm sure you're not referring to me, but has it occurred to you that they could have posted this information on Julie's blog? With all the media attention that this story is currently getting, that statement would have spread like wildfire without giving the sheeple the argument that Kevin and Jodi are in it for the money. To use your phrase, "do you not get that"?

the timing of all this is Perfect.
the "fans" who worshiped kate... she was riding the highest of highs and now, the media has an incredible way of smashing a person to bits.

GiveMeABreak! said...

I DO not belive that Kate, with all her controlling ways, would put up with an open marriage. PLEASE! Are you people serious? That woman kills her husband if he doesn't use a coupon!!

Pink said...

Grace and Niki, I am a bit dissapointed that you are judging Kevin & Jodi's choice on speaking to Star Magazine. My gosh, the point is that they have finally spoken up and their timing is done with pure perfection. I am very pleased they have done this!!! Let's not berate these people in any manner. Besides, Star tends to get things right.

Thanks to Kevin and Jodi for telling it like it is.

If these type of judgmental comments continue on Kevin and Jodi, they may stop speaking to the media, and that would be a bad thing considering they truly have the childrens best interests at heart.

Emma's Mom said...

The jig is up!
Guess they didn't read what the Bible says about greed, pride and sin.
Other magazines are also reporting the same as Star.
Time for Keight and Jane to walk away. Walk far and fast.
I hope we never see their greedy hands again.
.....and it's already too late for the kids - the damage is done.

NancyM said...

This is a terrible situation but I don't have a lot of respect for a brother/uncle who speaks to the tabloids about his sister no matter what she has done. Nothing good will come of this for the kids and I don't believe that "we" (the public) have a reason to know this - they are not elected officials or anything. YUK.

Deanna(notHummel) said...

Aside from the gossip regarding alien sightings and such, a lot can be said for gossip mags getting the story first. It has been my experience that the stories that are seen in gossip mags soon turn up in reputable publications. My belief is that the rags get it first because they pay more for the info. I would have loved to see a story in People from Kevin and Jodi but I do not blame them for trying to make a buck off of this train wreck now that they have an opportunity to do so.

I imagine from the looks of Beth's home, she is in not hurting for cash and may just stay silent on this issue rather than drag her family in it. Kevin and Jodi are family, and although shunned by the G's, are probably getting little peace from the media at a time like this anyway so why not tell what they know.

As far as taking the children away from their horrendously horrid parents; I doubt anyone has a real case for two reasons:
1. As stated in this blog, there are no laws in place protecting child reality stars in PA.
2. If they do in fact have a not-a-nanny and others who are tending to the childrens basic needs then, no matter how much it disgusts us, they are not being abused in the laws eyes.

While I think Kate is the worst, I do believe her children love her because they don't know any better at this time, and for such public children I believe it would cause more harm to remove them from their parents custody. Anyway we all agree the parents are not raising them. hopefully the hired help will show them love and help them through this mess.

VillageMom said...

I wish that folks would quit telling others to stop criticizing Kevin and Jodi for talking to Star. Is it really so hard to understand why many of us are a bit put out that such a great couple is cooperating with a rag?

Maybe it will become clear that it somehow benefits the children to have this stuff aired in a tabloid. But I reserve the right to question the prudence of it for now.

MeMommaMo said...

I don't believe that this blog brought Jon and Kate down, I think they brought themselves down. I feel so sorry for the children as they are the ones who are going to suffer the most. Way to go Kon. I knew that "remarriage" in Hawaii was just for TLC purposes. There was no love then, and I can see there is no love now.

nannyt said...

Sorry all, there's no way this is actually Kevin and Jodi. If you read the "teaser" online it's all recycled information. There's nothing that makes me believe they finally broke their silence. There's not a bit of information that people who barely follow Jon and Kate wouldn't know.

VillageMom said...

Pink, we'll see if Star gets things right if Jessica Simpson does turn out to be pregnant! :)

I AM JUST SAYIN said...

Give me a Break, do you also believe that Kate is home spending time with her children. Because of you do, holy cow. Kate isn't the person she claims to be, not by a long shot.

Anyone who has ever had the misfortune to meet her or be related to her KNOWS this as a FACT!

She doesn't care what Jon does so long as it doesn't interfere with her rise to fame. In her words "You stand with me, or against me." Guess Jon stood against her and she was gone regardless that he is the baby's daddy!

Lauren Pierce said...

I had been a big supporter of Jodie, but now I think she is more like Kate. How is this article going to help the kids? Bring them shame?

This was not the right thing to do. Has Jodie been talking to Star all this time?

No class.

Theresa said...

Does anyone else remember seeing the interview Jon gave while on ski trip with Cara. If I recall, his explanation for people/family dropping off the show was because they wanted their privacy and didn't want to be filmed. He said that he spoke to his mother and siblings several times a day, but none of them wanted to appear on the show. Also said Kate's parents have 19 grandkids and didn't want to participate in any of their lives, they basically just want to drop in and out of their life, so he and Kate said no. (That may be true. I can speak of personal experience with this one, my husband's Mother was the exact same way with our child. If was very confusing for our daughter, she would just pop up every six months or so and want to be G'mom of the year...and then disappear again breaking our child's heart, left her feeling like she did something wrong. We had to banish her for our child's sake.) If I am not mistaken, I thought he also said they were all very close with Kate's brother, Aunt Jodi & Beth still, but they didn't want to be part of the show. So I'm left wondering...what exactly is the truth here...of course there is always to sides of every story, but I also wonder just how much of this is blown out of proportion by the media.

LET IT BE TOLD said...

Julie I think the Kredier Family and you have shown a lot of grace through the past year. I know the media must hound the ever loving crappola out of your families yet you never turned against the Gosselins.

Even now, they are coming forward to protect the children, not to be paid for this fiasco.

Since I have no control over the Gosselins but the family does, I am glad they spoke up and I can't wait to see Jon and Kate burn in hell.

THANK YOU Kevin and Jodi and Julie and any other family member who has the gall to take Kate on for the sake of the children.

NCLindsey said...

Okay, just for the record... Kate's brother's name is Kevin, not Keith.

Holly said...

GiveMeABreak! said...
I DO not belive that Kate, with all her controlling ways, would put up with an open marriage. PLEASE! Are you people serious? That woman kills her husband if he doesn't use a coupon!!

I have to respectfully disagree with your comment. I think Kate has proven that she will do or say anything to get her way. I wouldn't be surprised if this was her "hush money" way of getting Jon to continue with season 5. Not only is she giving him what he wants but she also has blackmail information on him if he does something that will get in the way of her "career" or tarnishes her image. She obviously doesn't share the same moral values she preaches.

lindahoyt said...

Thank you Kevin and Jodi. You are heroes. Do not let the cries of others to the contrary bother you. It was the right thing to do, to tell the truth, as you lived it and saw it. You are telling your story.

You have done more for these kids by standing up and revealing the lies; than anyone else. Because the kids know that they are living a lie, and yet their parents are asking them to lie for pay...this twists their values and ruins their morals.

This should be it for the show. Definately it for Kate's "advice" on raising children and running a family; paid talks.

I am so sad that it has turned out like this.

But please let me say this; when one takes their eyes off Christ, and starts to worship his gifts instead; this is what happens.

Christians must stay connected to Jesus.

Jill -NY said...

I am stunned that Jodi and Kevin sold their story to Star. Yuck.

Tess H. said...

Thank you Julie and Kevin and Jodi and anyone else that is trying to help the Gosselin kids.

You are correct, most of us don't know how the media and the industry work, but I think we are getting an education on it! So, to add a little humor, is this what is meant by The Learning Channel?

What's sad is that we may not know the business side of this but those of us who saw through Kate before this blew up sure do know the human (or lack thereof) side.

All Jazzed Up said...

We have wanted the family to speak up for months and now they have.

It is time for us to sit back and watch the events unfold.

Kate and Jon have no one to blame but themselves.

Wouldn't it be nice for Kate to be at a meeting and the execs walk in and tell her she is through!

Now that would be GREAT. Maybe Donald Trump can tell Kate she is "Fired."

RealMom said...

I am glad Kevin and Jodi spoke out and I don't care who they spoke to Star or People or Time Magazine. It doesn't matter because they would have said the same thing. I am glad to see someone other than Jon and Kate provide information we have all been speculating on. I would be just as glad to see other family-type members speak out - positive or negative - but no one seems to want to comment, even for the sake of those poor kids. Have any of these recent articles mentioned the kids or how this might be affecting them?

Ms.Peach said...

It's no longer CRICKETS at the BM (should I say BS site). She says:

"I lost the last ounce of respect for the lovely 'Aunt Jodi' and her family. Here her husband Kevin makes one comment and Star Magazine publishes the biggest pack of garbage yet." However, she posts the cover of People with the picture of air brushed Kate and provides a link.

There you go----that's why it's ok for Kevin and Jodi to use Star.

Daner said...

Thank you for speaking up The Truth Will Set You Free. I am so worried about the kids with all this media mess going on. Kate is playing the "Poor Me" card and throwing Jon under the bus. I hope her lies are exposed very soon.

lindahoyt said...

I just have to laugh when everyone talks about Kate "working"...and her "Career"...

Kate is not "working"...she is "appearing" before adoring fans. She gets to shop, and get her hair, nails and tan done. Then sits down to sign a book, or talk to an interviewer. That isn't 'work' folks. That is fun.

She promotes a book she did not write; and a scrapbook of her kids. My sister makes scrapbooks like that for her kids, and her friends kids. With memories and scripture included--and she did not have editors and aides to help her, or babysitters and cooks to do the house work while she made them.

This can not be called a "Career"!

Mr. Neild on the other hand, had a career; but has probably ruined that now. Whether there was an affair or not, his relationship with Kate was highly unprofessional.

So many lives ruined. All for money.

But, listen Kate and Jon, it isn't too late. God can always resurrect your marriage and heal your relationships. He will provide your needs....but honey, not your GREEDS!

Your "career" is now over. But, your marriage and your family doesn't have to be.

Go back. Start over. Confess your sin, repent and be forgiven.

daisy said...

I have a feeling that Jon has had contact with Kevin and Jodi, and he has said he speaks with Bob. Perhaps now that Kate travels so much, he feels free to talk to her family, and maybe some of them have even been allowed to see the children.

I'm not saying Jon is the better parent, but if they do split up and he has the kids most of the time, maybe he will allow her family and his mother access to the kids. They are going to need the comfort they will provide for them, especially Aunt Jodi.

My feeling is that Kate will fight for them if only to promote the show Kate and her Eight. After all she would only have to be around them on filming days and then Jon can have them. She also needs them for her Healthtex connection. She is in this only for herself now.

The other Laurie said...

Did anyone stop to think that the Star might be the first publication that came to them and they finally have had enough of the lies from these two Kon artists? No matter what the publication Kevin and Jodi aren't going to lie because it would open them up to being sued. I say GOOD FOR THEM and I hope that others now come out and SPEAK UP! Enough is enough. I wish the state of PA could go after them for all the money spent.

Niki said...

Pink said...
Grace and Niki, I am a bit dissapointed that you are judging Kevin & Jodi's choice on speaking to Star Magazine.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Lol. I'm sorry to have disappointed you but my opinion still stands.

I will respect Julie's opinion/knowledge of the situation and wait until more is revealed.

What matters is that the kids are protected in the end.

gasmom said...

I don't care if they spoke to Star versus Time magazine...I don't care if they hired a plane to do sky-writing...I am glad Jodi and Kevin (for whatever reasons or under whatever circumstances) are coming forth with what they know. The real travesty would be if this joke of a show continues despite their efforts (which it very well may).

I'm not judging, because I am a HUGE Jodi/Kevin/Julie fan, and I believe they sincerely care about the kids and are not out for a buck. However...what would really be a blow to the Gosselin gravy train and all the naive "fans" is if they took their paycheck (if they indeed got one) and VERY PUBLICLY donated it all to a charity working on behalf of children, or to a trust fund for the Gosselin KIDS that could not be accessed by Jon and Kate.

Again, I'm not judging them if they got paid, or even if they keep the money, but it would certainly prove credibility in the eyes of all the "disciples" who will inevitably dismiss everything they say on the belief that they are just selling trash.

Just a thought...

Also, Julie, glad to see you're back and giving the fans of THE KIDS some hope...which is something I have not had a lot of.

Sal said...

Julie I want to say a BIG THANK YOU for standing up for 8 little innocent children. I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to Jody and Kevin who have loved these kids since before they were born.

God bless you all. I know it has been a horrible and stressful, time for the extended family having to watch the downfall of Jon & Kate and what they have done to their children all for fame and greed.

THANK YOU for all that is to come. It means only one thing - you all have been working behind the scenes
to save these precious children from exploitation.

Many many people love and respect you for that.

Chris said...

I think that Kevin and Jodi spoke out now because they feel it is most necessary now. I still feel that they should throw themselves under the bus and file for custody of the kids. Since they already have no relationship with Kate, they have nothing to lose in that department. It might make those knuckleheads sit up and realize what is really important.

violet said...

"The truth will set you free" said..."be patient and stop criticizing..."
I agree. Aunt Jodi and Kevin are going to be "slammed" by many people whether they speak on a free blog or by a paid magazine. But after watching them for several seasons, they are clearly great parents with strong love for their families. By speaking out, I'm sure they realize there is no turning back and they have forever put a fork into their relationship with Kate...maybe even Jon. Kevin and Jodi know and see a lot more than the thousands of us GWOPers. Imagine how disgusted they are?

Laura said...

To those that say they are said that this all is played out publicly, well, what do you expect?

Kon has cut everyone out of their lives. The only way to respond or speak is publicly.

Kon chose to put themselves in the public spotlight for money. Now they will be forced to let that same public judge them and their choices. It comes with the territory.

XYZed said...

Well, it didn't take long for Kate to play the "Poor Me" card. You just know she'll be adding "Woman Scorned" to her resume and using that to promote her 'career'.

lindahoyt said...

Kate said, "When your mind is ready to go there, you can accept any number of scenarios."

Yes, that is true. But, if you are a Christian, you train your mind NOT to "go there"...not to accept any scenarios that includes sinning against the Lord who has done so much for you.

Your mind Kate, needs to accept the fact that you are a cruel, meansprited person, who degraded and humiliated your husband, and numerous other people. Let your mind go there: to accept blame for your own actions.

penngirl said...

I am originally from Lancaster County, PA, 45 minutes away from Readin, and I now in New York City -- we get all the gossip rags on Wednesdays instead of Fridays, and I just read the article in Star magazine. Among the standard things about ending the charade for the children, the article contains a confirmation by Kevin (Kate's brother) that six months ago, Kate told Jon the marriage was over and had him sign a contract stating that he could live a separate life, INCLUDING GIRLFRIENDS, as long as he agreed to come together for filming of the show. The reason for the contract was so that Kate could continue promoting her books, published by a "christian" publisher, and become the spokeperson for more and more prestigious companies without any of her employers being the wiser.

My heart seriously breaks for these children. This week, Jon and Kate are on the cover of UsWeekly, People, Star, Life&Style, the Enquirer... the list just goes on and on. How will they ever explain this complete and utter implosion of their lives to their defenseless children?

I've always been an advocate for doing what we can to get these children off this reality show, from which they have no protection, but now I just feel like crying. Their lives will never be the same.

K.Barrett said...

I applaud Kevin and Jodi for speaking up and hopefully they will put an end to the destruction KON is causing. I truly admire them for what they're doing.

The end of KON! said...

Here is a recent quote published by daily news on May 8th by Kate:
"Asked whether she believes hubby Jon is cheating on her with a 23-year-old teacher, Kate Gosselin, mom of eight and star of “Jon & Kate Plus Eight,” told Us Magazine, “Absolutely not. We’re a happy family and we’re going to keep it that way.”

Is she smoking crack? Okay, so not really but seriously, this woman is saying multiple things and I think she is doing it to get attention.
I think she likes all these tabloid stories, good or bad press, it puts the attention on her!

margojata said...

Julie! Please tell Jodi she's AWESOME! I'm behind her 100%!

momof5 said...

Kate may be out know promoting her "career" but once that show is over no one will want to hear from her.

I hope they have enough money for an ugly divorce/custody battle 'cuz I don't see an attorney representing either one pro bono.

pretty is as pretty does said...

Say what you will about Star, they and other similar magazines have broken many stories, ahem ,Joh Edwards. People is such a PR rag. They only cover what the PR people want them to. They are far from investigative journalist. Newsweek and Time they are not going to do an interview with Aunt Jodie. Trust they will cover it with some fancy story line down the road. " America and the never ending quest for fame and money why the rest of the world hates us" and bring in some Harvard PHD to comment. They would not touch a story like this. I thank STAR and US Weekly without them this train wreck would have just continued.

AnotherLisa said...

Rock on Kevin and Jodi!!!

And big hugs to Julie too!

It's time for the Jon and Kate scam to be exposed. It's time for the blindly loyal sheeple to see the truth.

SickOfThem said...

Julie - Kevin - Jodi ... thank you for trying to save these children from their parents. I sincerely hope something can be done legally so as to provide a stable and healthy living environment for these kids. Any chance at normalcy is better than what they have now. Patience is a virtue - we'll await word from you in the future.

Pink said...

VillageMom said...
Pink, we'll see if Star gets things right if Jessica Simpson does turn out to be pregnant! :)

Oh a zinger....LOL. Yep, we shall see. :-)

Things that make you go Hmmm said...

All of this buzz (whether positive or negative) is certain to do exactly what TLC and Kate want it to do -- generate ratings.

As much as we all want to see this train fall off the tracks, we cannot support this show by watching it. Turn it off. Don't go near TLC, especially when J&K are on the air. If you really must witness the carnage that will be Season 5, view it on You Tube afterwards. But the only way they will stop filming is if the ratings drop and we can make that happen.


Please, I implore you, DO NOT WATCH!

Theresa said...

I found the interview Jon gave to KUTV while on vacation with Cara...

If you can get past all the "Umms" and "like" he seems sincere with his explanations on why family/friends aren't on the show anymore...don't know what to believe

My goodness said...

HOLY HANNAH!!!!!

momof5 said...

For everyone saying that Star etc aren't reputable maybe Katie should go on Nancy Grace. Can't you just hear Nancy yelling at her now? "Yes or no Kate!"

Joanne said...

Thanks Julie for your update. I feel bad for the extended family of Jon and Kate. Those two are an embarrassment and they have created this mess out of their greed for fame and fortune. Look where it got them..

Jodi and Kevin. I am sure this is very hard for you and I know you love the kids.GOD bless you in your effort to help them. They need to cancel the show NOW.

TLC... WAKE UP AND CANCEL.

I respect Julie, Kevin & Jodi's opinions as well, and don't plan to critique where they choose to finally disclose the true facts on the Greedy Kate Gosselin. As one wise poster put it....even if they choose to sky-write it. LOL

It just seems to me they we should be elated that facts are finally coming to the surface, and as Julie stated in her post here (TruthBreedsHatred), there is MUCH more to come. I stand by my support of them and I see you do too. Thanks, Niki. :-)

Cheri Mercer said...

This is a terrible situation but I don't have a lot of respect for a brother/uncle who speaks to the tabloids about his sister no matter what she has done.

*****************************
Really? But it was okay for Deanna's brother to spill the truth on Jon? It makes my mind boggle when people talk in circles, just like Kate does.

I am sure Kevin and Jodi did their homework before they met with the Star and/or their attorneys. They aren't ignorant people (although Kevin's sister is). They have children of their own to protect and I bet my last dollar that they are making sure none of this affects them.

And Julie, thank YOU for speaking up again on this sad situation. I know all of the Kredier family must lose a lot of sleep at night because of what Kate has done and continues to do all in the name of fame.

Remy said...

I am sorry if this is not the right spot to post this. The perfect $h!t Storm. This whole thing has grown out of their control. Hey Kate, Pandora's box is open.

KonNoMore said...

I can't beleive the same magazine that "Trashed" Kate she gave them an open interview? She is throwing Jon under the bus and the heck with the kids. Who is taking care of the kids? I am not a Star Magazine fan either but at least Kevin and Jodi are talking. I'm sure Beth will not be far behind. I'm sure all three will be getting invited to LKL and so on.... This story is a black hole with the kids floundering.

ShisoandRice said...

I wasn't "BITCHING" so I'm sure you're not referring to me, but has it occurred to you that they could have posted this information on Julie's blog? With all the media attention that this story is currently getting, that statement would have spread like wildfire without giving the sheeple the argument that Kevin and Jodi are in it for the money. To use your phrase, "do you not get that"?Konspiracy?
A lot of KONs fans dont even KNOW who JULIE is or that there is any controversy...
IT NEEDS TO BE ON STORE SHELVES!

BeccainReading said...

Therese the situation you described and the situation of the Kreiders is totally different. Kate wanted her parents to focus ONLY on her children and not the rest of their grandchildren. As grandparents, they couldn't possibly shun the rest of the family for the sake of the Gosselins.

It was Kate's way or the highway! Kate shut them out.

Pink said...

Correction on Julie's blogging name here.....I meant "The Truth Will Set You Free".

SavetheSheeples said...

"All of this buzz (whether positive or negative) is certain to do exactly what TLC and Kate want it to do -- generate ratings."

I think it's SICK that TLC hasn't yet finalized the season premiere so they can put a spin on the events currently unfolding.

It just goes to show how little they care about the Gosselins as human beings.

And even sicker is they two morons are going along with it.

AnotherLisa said...

Yes, this might generate ratings for TLC, but it also might clue Wal-mart, J&J and other sponsors into the fact that the Gosselin name is soiled.

Jacsamic said...

Julie-

Another Thank You. I sincerely hope you and the family have had access to the children during all this sadness. They need you.

They need their parents as well. Heartbreaking that those two morons are what they are.

Curious as I have been reading this blog for such a long time, I realize even though the truth is finally surfacing (yea), my heart aches for children. The only thing I care about is hearing how the children are being protected, loved and counseled on how to survive this nightmare their parents created.

Thank you, and your family, for the courage to step forward. And mostly thank you for what I just pray you will be doing in the future for the children.

SavetheSheeples said...

As for Kevin and Jodi, I have mixed feelings about this. I think they could have picked a better media outlet than Star magazine. But I don't want to say anymore until I actually read the entire article rather than the previews.

It could be that the article is filled with regurgitated fluff and only contains very little from Kevin and Jodi.

Ms.Peach said...

Everyone knows Jon likes to talk (Utah interview). He said that he still is in touch with family. I believe that and that Kate speaks to no one in the family. So, I think he blabbed about his suspicions about Kate and Mr. Grey and about the secret contract. Regardless, the cat's out the bag now and others will be waiting in line to spill their guts.

As an aside, I remember reading about places Kate shops. One was Victoria's Secret. So if Jon and Kate haven't been doing the nasty for many months now, who's she dressing up for? I've always shopped Victoria's Secret for "special" undergarments and nighties. Oh well, Mr. Grey should ask for a transfer whether the allegations are true or not.

Oh yea, the stuff about the Greys going on vacation with the Kons---they're not friends, it was business. The guy was there to be their bodyguard and the wife tagged along probably to get a free trip. Really, Kate. The wife is not your buddy.

lindahoyt said...

Becky said...
Dear Kate,
Since I fully believe that you read these blogs when you're (ahem) alone at night in your hotel room on yet another promotion trip of some sort, let me tell you something:

Despite what some people may be telling you, alot of people don't "love you" anymore. They are seeing what is an increasingly pathetic attempt to create some sort of celebrity off the backs of what is a truly sad, sad situation.

Nothing about your current behavior matches what you say ("We're handling it in private"...really...since when is People private)

Here's what I'm afraid of. Since you only surround yourself with people you pay-they will tell you ANYTHING you want to hear, anything you need to be told to keep the show (trainwreck) going. THEY only get paid when you get paid. So of course they don't have YOUR best interest at heart....they have their own wallets to think about. The people who do want what's best for you are the people who were discarded a long time ago.

Kate, your turning into a mockery of yourself. You know how everybody thinks "how did people like Brittany Spears and Michael Jackson get so weird?" You know how? By surrounding themselves with yes-men...people who will say anything to keep the gravy train going.

Kate, it's time to exit from the public arena you've created for yourself as gracefully as can be at this stage. You've overstayed your welcome, and I'm afraid there's nobody left to tell you so.

Good luck. Honestly.

************************
That bears repeating. I pray that she will listen.

The thing is, that part of your success, Kate, was your relationship with your husband. He balanced out your nastiness. No one wants to watch a show with just you. Sorry to be so blunt, but you are a hateful woman, mostly. Oh, you are also clever and pretty...and witty at times. But, mostly you are rude to others, ungrateful in your actions...you never help others or think about them. You never offer to babysit for other moms or go and clean their houses...but others watch your kids and their too....Jodi watched 11 kids all at once....alot of the time! And she didn't have the "helpers" that you do.

Stop kidding yourself. YOU are not the draw. YOUR FAMILY was the draw, and you ruined it with your own contemptable behavior toward your husband. He looked elsewhere, because you did first...you looked to fame and fortune; you looked to adoring fans; you made yourself an Idol; and in so doing, you ruined all that was good in your life.

Repent.

SavetheSheeples said...

"maybe Katie should go on Nancy Grace. Can't you just hear Nancy yelling at her now?"

Nancy would tear Kate to pieces, chew her up, and spit her out.

goawayJandK said...

Just my .02 here:

At this point, I really don't care if Dede's bro has a criminal past and made $ from his story/pics/video. He outed Jon for the loser he is.

And I really don't care if Kevin and Aunt J made $ off their comments (if they are true) because they are outing K8 for the greedy,lying biatch she is.

Shari said...

I'm not real sure why they chose 'Star' as their avenue of choice, but at the end of the day .... who cares! They're finally setting the record straight! (I also hope they got highly compensated for it. They've put up with a lot.) But I have a feeling this is just the beginning and pretty soon they'll also be talking to the more reputable media like People. I would love it if they got invited onto Good Morning America, since The Today Show seems to worship the ground 'Take' walks on.

I think the silent road Kevin, Jodi, and all of the other rejected family members have taken until now is very admirable, but enough is enough. Time to speak up and put an end to this insanity in hopes that the kids might still have time to be saved from this train wreck.

I think I'll drop an email to Good Morning America and see if they take requests. Anyone care to join me?

lindahoyt said...

So, was Kate being interviewed on Mother's day for this People cover? She has on the orange shirt.

If so, what a present to give the tups on their 5th birthday...cuz of course "it's all for the kids--everything they do is for the kids...it's where their focus has always been, the kids."

What are the sheeple saying now?

Orvo said...

I think if the kids' best interests were truly at heart, nobody would be speaking to any magazine. It's ridiculous in so many ways. I don't understand it all, to be honest. If Jodi were truly interested in protecting those children, why is she bringing more attention to it by speaking to Star? Just seems like an odd choice. Also, the tabloids may have uncovered the John Edwards' story, but that seems to be the only one anyone can name. Are there others?

a GIANT THANK YOU!! to kevin, aunt jodi, beth & bob carson, and julie.

i can imagine how hard it would be to keep certain knowledge under your hat, and opening yourselves to backlash from people. i think it's sad to see negative comments on this blog about you all. i know the floodgates are opening, and at some point it must be hard to continue dealing with things coming back at you just for telling what you know. just please stay strong in the face of that because you know in your heart that you ARE doing RIGHT by those kids, the ones who don't get to have a say in matters!

Daner said...

For all that says this can't be true in since this is in Star it holds no truth. If they were lies Kon could sue...but I am sure that won't happen.

And then use her bones to pick out the remaing bits of Kate from her teeth.

I just now saw Julie's post, and I am glad Kevin and Jodi are going to take this further than Star magazine.

My heart is breaking for these kids. They don't deserve this at all. :(

potato chip said...

I am so very saddened that this whole saga has to play out in the media. I'm not sure how some of the details that are coming out are going to "help" their eight kids.

I do, however, trust that Jodi, Kevin and Julie have the best interest of those precious kids at heart, and I trust they are doing what they need to do to make sure the kids have a better future than past.

However you look at it, the blame falls squarely on Jon and Kate.

arabella said...

Why is this any of our business? Aren't we doing more harm than good, speculating about someone else's marriage and family? And if anyone thinks they are doing the kids any kind of service, they are sorely mistaken. Blogging about affairs, spray tans, freebies, etc does not help the children gain back their freedom. We need to get the laws changed.

Unless, of course, we use the child's advocate thing as an excuse to bash other people.

Sadly Kate will never willingly give up those children. They are her meal ticket IF she has a ticket left. I hope and pray that God intervenes in her life and opens up her heart. But unfortunately, I highly doubt Kate will turn over a new leaf.

lindahoyt said...

I once had a friend whose little girl was kidnapped from her front yard, while my friend was on the phone.

There were loads of people who blamed her for not watching the little one better. But, I reminded her that the blame lay with the kidnapper! Keep the blame where it belongs!

Kate and Jon have made this mess, and they are the ones to blame. Not Kevin and Jodi...not "babe's" brother. Jon and Kate are the ones hurting their kids.

JON AND KATE ARE HURTING THE KIDS---NO ONE ELSE!

Lucinda said...

Thank you Kevin and Jodi AND Julie! To the posters who say they don't think it's actually Kevin and Jodi...my hubby is in the media and from what he tells me, LEGALLY they can't quote someone unless it's them talking. They can say "A Source close to a popular multiples mom" and say waht they want, but if they say Kevin (what's his name! LOL!), brother of Kate Gosselin says, "Blah, blah, blah" it has to be true. Otherwise he could sue the PANTS off of the mag....so in other words...yes, that is Kevin and Jodi talking to Star. It's about time!

Get Real said...

I don't believe for one second Kevin and Jodi are in this for the money. Not one bit. They have always been concerned about the welfare of the Gosselin 8.

I truly hope that Jon has been giving Kevin and Jodi "visitation" rights while Mama Kate has been out playing with her bodyguard.

BTW, thanks JULIE!

Ice Angel said...

OK...not sure what upsets me more about this whole situation. The way Jon & Kate have been acting or the things that people are talking about. I mean, c'mon....questioning what the woman buys at Victoria's Secret??? It's really NONE of our business where she buys her undergarments, nor should any of us care. This is getting to the point of just being fun gossip for gossips sake.

The truth of the matter is this:

If people are willing to pay Jon & Kate for a popular tv show that people are watching, then so be it. If people want to be stupid and give people who live in a million dollar house money, then so be it. If John wants to run around with other women and Kate with other men, so be it. If you don't want to buy the con, then don't.

The fact of the matter is that it is a tv show. There are plenty of famous kids out there who are the subject of media attention, scandal, etc....These kids will be either fine or they won't be.

But let's put this into perspective folks. There are kids being killed in inner cities every day. There are kids being raised by parents that let them play with guns, leave drugs laying around the house, associate with drug dealers and gang members. There are kids living in homeless shelters and are abused and neglected right here in our own country by the thousands, probably millions.

While I really don't think Jon & Kate are the ideal parents-Kate yells to much and wants too much order. Jon is a slacker or whatever. Obviously they don't get along and both may actually cheat on each other. Well this describes many families in your very own neighborhoods. Maybe even some posters here.

I think to heroically say that everyone wants to "save these children" is a bit far fetched. They are being cared for physically, have enough to eat, are properly clothed, fed, have a comfortable home and go to private schools.

Now if real abuse was happening to these kids, I would be first in line to protest and do whatever possible to "save these kids." But a much of bloggers on a website should spend a lot less time gossiping about the Gosselins, relishing every juicy detail that comes out and more time on the real problems of this world.

You do NOT know any of these children. They do NOT know any of you. It is NONE of your business what their parents do in their private lives.

Protest the show for exploiting the children as much as you want, but while you are at it, you better just never watch any television show, commercial, reality show or listen to any music using child artists or personalities. Also, while at it, put down the parenting magazines that tell heartwarming stories of people's children along with beautiful pictures of beautiful children. (They might get into the hands of predators.)

I just ask you all to stop for a moment and think about what is really going on with your own motives when it comes to this family. If you look closely, it has more to do with the fun you are all having bringing these people down than the kids themselves. Because if you all do get your wish, the parentss will divorce and go broke and the kids will be raised in a broken home.

I'll end my tirade by saying that I too have been watching all the stories and reading this blog for juicy tidbits myself, so I understand it is an interesting story. But just be careful what you wish for.

KIDS MATTER MOST said...

Geez Louise---

For months people have been asking to hear the family speak-- they do ( or so it seems) and they are blasted. In all likely hood, do you think Good Housekeeping or LHJ would go after Kevin and Jodi for a story??? Look at all the real stars, and their drama... do you ever see this kind of story in one of those magazines?

I imagine Jodi and Kevin know so much, that is frightens them. Possibly, they felt this was the only was to turn the tables, and MAYBE get Kate and Jon to stop.

Kate said something in a interview that struck me. " I don't care what people think of me" Well, her kids may care. Kate, by her own admission did not have what she thought was a great childhood... She mentioned how she hates projects because her Dad never finished anything on the "Going Green" episode. That has stayed with her into her adult life. SHE was bothered by her parents.

So-- even if she doesn't care what people think about her, others do. Her kids do / will in time. And, I can only imagine what her family and Jon's are going through. These were middle class, working, God fearing people, with normal lives-- or so it appeared. And then - BOOM-- a TV series, a couple that sold out their children, affairs, book tours... you name it. I for one think they stayed in the small town in PA because they would be the only celebrities there.
It looks like a lot of attention when it is all being focused on one couple. Go somewhere where the paparattzi has to spread themselves thin-- and they wouldn't be given the time of day.

I'll tell you-- I look at John Travolta, Farrah Fawcett, Patrick Swayze and what they are going through. Somehow-- they manage to keep the sharks at bay-- most of the time. I think it is because there is a respect for people that are in the "business" and have proven they are also deserving of the fame and fortune they have.

When tough times happen, there is a sympathy that goes along with the privacy factor. All Jon and Kate did was have kids and sell them out. Doesn't take much talent-- and it certainly doesn't foster R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

This has become all consuming for some. Seems to me it is because of the dangling carrots all of the time. People want the story-- and they always have had a mysterious side to them. The lack of grandparents- they little tidbits that keep you wondering, the lack of friends- or the friends that come and go. Is this really their life? Or is is a show being played out for money? Reality is subjective when there is no basis other than what appears to be true. For all we know-- Kevin and Jodi are actors and not even related to the Gosselins. I don't believe that to be true-- but you get where I am going with that.

One thing that is tangible and REAL is '8 LITTLE FACES" that are missing out on attention, love, being tucked in at night, kisses .... you name it-- while their parents are dealing with the mess they have created in their lives.

PLEASE-- Jodi and Kevin or anyone else out there-- IF all of this is real, and these kids are dealing with what seems to be -- HELP THEM in any way you can. Involve your church, your family-- tell all you can that will listen!!! These kids-- like ALL kids deserve so much better.

How can we watch this sad situation, and not react???? They have "put it out there". Did they not think people would notice and respond? I could go on- but I better stop. I want to go hug my kids.

lindahoyt said...

Oh, I see why Kate decided to interview with People...it was to put the blame back on Jon! If she can parlay this into her being the wronged wife---which by the way, no one believes, because she castrated Jon every single week---then in her mind, she can keep the "kate Gosselin" brand going! Single mother might even be MORE profitable!! Yea! Her job would suddenly become even harder..cuz honestly, with the kids in school, she didn't look like she needed any help; which is her hook...and frankly, there isn't a story about how hard she works anymore---BUT AS A SINGLE MOM!! wHOOP WHOOP! She suddenly gets MORE fans! More adoration, she is more inspirational!

But, if it is found out that she actually had an affair too....well, she must nip that in the bud.

Now Jodi and Kevin are gonna mess it up, by revealing that she actually wrote up a document saying her husband could cheat! Kinda ruins the church talks, and inspirational worship...

jill said...

Also...

No one makes money off these kids but us...

I don't think so, Kate!

With the info. your family knows, they are going to be moving into a big house right next to you, KON!

Becky said...

linda hoyt said:
Stop kidding yourself. YOU are not the draw. YOUR FAMILY was the draw, and you ruined it with your own contemptable behavior toward your husband.

First, thanks for the props!

'aint that the truth Linda? What's sad to think is that in what, another few years, the kids will be typing their names and their parents names into google, and ALL of this will be out there for them to see. Can't you just see a teenager thinking, "So that's what she was doing when we were home alone w/ the nannies all that time...."

Yhey (the family) knows the truth, not this skewed version that is playing out in the media.

I just can't FATHOM what part of Kate thinks it's a good idea to be talking about her marriage troubles to magazines?!?!

Just go home and pull the plug on it already.

I wonder though: if Kate isn't a victim and isn't a "celebrity" mom of 8 kids...who is she? I don't think she knows and I think that scares the heck out of her.

Niki said...

AnotherLisa said...
Yes, this might generate ratings for TLC, but it also might clue Wal-mart, J&J and other sponsors into the fact that the Gosselin name is soiled.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Or they may want to go ahead and try to make her the next Martha Stewart. Single mother making it on her own. If there's no solid proof of this agreement between her and Jon, then she just looks like a victim who was cheated on.

Sad. Sad. Sad.

Sue said...

DON'T BUY any of thses magazine, it just keeps it going . Yes buy Star!! but don't buy People. These magazines but "sellers" on the front. If they dont' sell you won't see these people on the front. It is similar to those fools Heidi and Spencer. Everytime they are on US magazine they sell like crazy so guess what? They keep putting them on. People buy it to see what the fools have to say not b/c they are fans. We need to do our part to keep Kon (another set of fools) out of the limelight, especially when it's a one-on-one interview like Kate did with People! Let be sure to show People that we DON'T care what Kate has to say!

jill\ said...

http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20278472,00.html

She says they might split.

Why is she TRYING to look sexy on the cover...She is one weirds mobile!!!! LOL

My Take said...

Arabella, Kate made it our business by talking to the tabloids in the first place. No one FORCED her to go on every talk show in the country throwing Jon under the bus. Kate did this to herself. And I am sure I speak for a majority of the posters out there, WE CARE about the children and want to see the laws change.


Ice Angel - I will respectfully disagree with why YOU are here on this blog. You talk in circles about teens in America being killed and not having adequate parents but then end your long post by stating that YOU too read the stories and blogs for the latest gossip.

Bottom line is this - The Gosselins did this to themselves especially Kate. Are there more important issues out there to be discussed, of course. But I go to those other websites and discuss THOSE issues not here. This is a place where we can talk about everything relating to the Gosselin family.

siliconmom said...

I think that given the new People magazine - with Kate saying "they may split up" - Jodi and Kevin are trying to look out for the best interests of the kids. That's why they went to the Star.

So here's the question: Who should get the kids? I know we all feel that Jodi and Kevin should but that isn't going to happen. It doesn't work that way, folks. Terminating parental rights is serious business and neither Kate nor Jon have proven that they are unfit parents as defined by the Court.

It obviously sounds, from the Star article, that Kate left the marriage first. It also sounds like Jon went ahead with this contract for a variety of reasons I'm sure. He convinced himself that he could live this kind of an existence but realized as season 4 progressed that he couldn't live this sham. I think that's why he's been so "careless" about letting the photogs catch him. The fact that he also brings down Kate is a bonus.

Personally, I think Jon should have stood up to Kate the minute she presented such a contract and said "enough!". That would have been the man thing to do. But he didn't. Still, I think I would much rather the kids be with him full time then Kate. I think she's demonstrated that she'd rather have a "career" than be a full time mom. So let her.

Unfortunately, the only reason any one would ever pick her up as a talk show host/author/etc. is because of the kids. So she'll fight tooth and nail for them. I hope that it's during the custody battle that WILL happen that both her family and Jon's stand up for what's best for the kids. Jon has enough money that he can easily take care of the kids on his own. I hope he's able to do that.

Battle of the Gosselins said...

If Jon had any sense at all, he would be documenting EVERYTHING and getting his act together. He would be the one person who could bring Kate down fast. He knows about EVERYTHING from day one. Even if he was conniving with her in the beginning, this could really blow her ego.

If I were Kate I would be making myself less and less noticable and start watching my ps and qs. And FAST!

I think Jon has something sneeky up his sleeve.

Sukie said...

Jodi, Kevin and Julie - thank you so very much for putting the truth out there. I hope that you will all begin to be a part of the kids lives once again - those 8 children will need loving family members to support and counsel them after all this mess!

XYZed said...

It has been suggested that all the recent publicity that Kon has generated has been orchestrated by them to promote their show and sell books. I beg to differ.

Fans of Kon constantly gush about Gosselin family values, their commitment to each other, and Jon and Kate's religious focus. The information that has surfaced about Jon and Kate in the last few weeks portrays them both in such a negative way that I would expect their true fans would be secretly sickened if even half of it is true.

Jon, the devoted husband, has been exposed as a party-guy who seems to have strayed from his marriage. Kate, the tireless stay-at-home-Mom is reportedly more focused on her 'career' than her family and apparently has next to nothing to do with the daily lives of her children. How can any of this negative publicity, which is in such stark contrast to the carefully crafted sham image they have promoted, encourage support for their family-oriented show or their religious-based books?

I am sure their TLC producers, book publishers, etc., are cringing now that their cash cows have been exposed for who and what they have been all along.

discoball said...

"I, like, rely on God, totally." --Jon Gosselin. Utah interview.

I just listened to the interview for the first time and I like think like my ears are like bleeding now.

But what struck me, besides the number of likes that he threw in after EVERY OTHER WORD, was a comment he made towards the end. Basically he said that God has been blessing them ever since they decided not to selectively reduce the 'tups while pregnant, because they "stuck it out." So does that mean they really believe their $1.3 million home and all the trips they've taken and all the freebies they receive came from God because they didn't reduce?? I've heard the tale of the blessed paper towels that appeared miraculously, but is that honestly how they justify the rest of the loot? If that's the case I wonder why Kate isn't seeing these latest issues as God trying to tell her to get the show off the air.

I thought Kevin and Jodie's silence up until now was very noble. Now they talk to STAR magazine! Something just isn't right here. I don't know what it is but it just feels wrong.

Of course something is wrong there, Maybe these two finally had enough of the child abuse and have finally decided to speak up. I applaud their courage and I hope they know how many people are trully behind them. its about time someone speaks out on behalf of those precious kids. What do all the sheeple have to say now? Looks like the last laugh is trully on them. Jody and Kevin you guys are fabulous, keep up the good work.

SueM said...

Boy, there's just no pleasing some of you! So Kevin and Jodi spoke to Star (and maybe got paid)...get over yourselves! Kevin and Jodi have always been honorable in the past, doubtful that has changed. The full article isn't even out and some are already dumping on poor Kevin and Jodi. I for one want top hear what they have to say no matter who it's to.

This is what we have wanted...family and friends to come forward for the sake of the kids. We need to trust that Jodi and Kevin are doing just that. Haven't they always come through for the kids before?! I don't think they'd do anything to let those kids down.

Jen K said...

Jon and Kate had an agreement that he could ding around and when it went bad and he got caught she threw him under the bus. They're both horrible people, but I think Kate's m.o. has always been to use people up and throw them away.

We are seeing this pattern repeat itself again here, in my opinion.

Tia said...

Just a thought.
When Survivor split the tribes by racial lines they lost major long time sponsors within days, that have not returned. So CBS hasn't done that again. So now why the sponsors haven't backed out of TLC... who knows

Lala said...

Has their old house been sold??

I highly suggest they take it off the market, if not. And put the mcmansion on the market.

Exhausted said...

Do you think Jon will be tired of taking all the blame and lash back at Kate (publicly via the media, of course)?

Seeing her play the victim card is just nauseating. I know a statement will soon be coming from Kate about Jodi/Kevin: "I'm horrified that my brother would do something so despicable." Kate pretending she has morals and decency is so 2007.

kate is a cocky bitch said...

wow the tide is actaully turning
I never thought in a million years that people would start to see the truth about these KON-artists. BTW these days, Star is no more gossipy than People or even CNN for that matter as cable news relies heavily on printed magazine articles for their wrap-around news stories.

Abby said...

My perfect case scenario would be for Kevin and Jodi to get the kids and Jon to get visitation rights.

Kate? Screw her. Let her get on with her "booming career".

But sadly, since there's no proof of physical abuse, it'll never happen. Kate is methodically setting this up to take over the "family buisness" and leave Jon out in the cold. He's served his purpose. He knocked her up with her 8 money makers and now needs to leave it all for HER.

The kids would be so much better off with Kevin and Jodi. Kate only wants them for the money. If she gets custody, it'll be for the show and her fame alone. She'll never be home to love or mother them. They are nothing but $$$$ to her.

This whole thing makes me sick. Those poor children. I really believe Kevin and Jodi are their only hope for a happy life.

Becky said...

I wonder how all this might affect the next book-Love is in the Mix or whatever it is.

Might be time to look for a new title.

Wendy said...

Well, I hope Jodi and Kevin coming front and center brings the show to an end. Let's be real, there is no way that custody would be given to anyone but the parents. If the show stops then the constant exploitation stops.

I hope this happens and this blog is no longer needed.

About Time said...

If Kevin and Jodi have no contact with the Gosselins, what recent and reliable information could they have?
**************
Sounds like Jon has been in contact with Kevin. Jon probably has been in contact behind Kate's back with lots of people Kate tried to shut out of their lives. Didn't he say in one interview that he still "talks"/texts with Beth's husband, with his mom, and with his brothers? From what is being reported by the Star, it seems like Jon has been telling his side of the story to people for a while now.

karma said...

I wonder if Jon is speaking out against Kate too in a back door sort of way?

Theresa said...

Ms.Peach said...

It's no longer CRICKETS at the BM (should I say BS site). She says:

"I lost the last ounce of respect for the lovely 'Aunt Jodi' and her family. Here her husband Kevin makes one comment and Star Magazine publishes the biggest pack of garbage yet." However, she posts the cover of People with the picture of air brushed Kate and provides a link.

There you go----that's why it's ok for Kevin and Jodi to use Star.

Sideshow: Newsmakers: Jon & Kate and more
By Tirdad Derakhshani

Inquirer Staff Writer

In a new wrinkle in the tiresome reality-TV marital spat, Kate Gosselin, who juggles her hubby and eight kids for entertainment on TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8, tells People that rumors she has carried on with family bodyguard Steve Neild "are disgusting, unthinkable, unfathomable" and part of a tabloid smear campaign. This bit of dirt follows reports that Kate's better half, Jon, has had an affair with a 23-year-old schoolteacher. (He denies it.) The New York Daily News says TLC suits are scrambling to find a way for the show to capitalize on the couple's strife.

Jonny Boy said...

If I were Kate, I would be very afraid of what Jon is doing or what he is about to do and I don't mean his affairs.

Their scam and lies are being blown wide open.

Missy said...

Perhaps Kevin and Jodi are speaking out because they have been asked to? Perhaps Jon or Kate have asked them to come forward for the sake of the children and to put an end to this sham.

Big question is was is Jon or was it Kate? Hmmm

Kate may not physically abuse those children but we have seen her emotionally torment them. Abuse is abuse is abuse just like exploiting is exploiting is exploiting.

All of it has and continues to damage the children.

I just read the story someone linked to above at US magazine's site, and I am just shocked.

This is going to get very ugly, I think. Very, very ugly.

And sadly, the kids are caught in the middle and they are 100% innocent in this. I feel terrible for them, and my heart aches.

Who are they with when Jon is traipsing around town with his GF, and Kate is traveling? Who puts them to bed at night?

Thinking about this is agonizing.

You know what really bugs me? The Sheeple all have their panties in a twist about how Jon hurt Kate and laughing about how much child support he will have to pay. I just don't understand that. Maybe if he were the primary breadwinner, but it seems to me that isn't the case. Can someone please explain to me why it is that HE will have to pay when SHE is the one with the "career" and leaves him with the children?

Oh, btw, Thanks Julie!! Looking forward to a new post on your blog.

SHAME ON TLC said...

I am sure their TLC producers, book publishers, etc., are cringing now that their cash cows have been exposed for who and what they have been all along.

------------------
I have no sympathy for any of them especially TLC. They played along with this sham for a long long time even though they knew it was harming the kids. Let them cringe all they want. All I care about is their show being taken off the air.

Lisa said...

I hope they are foerced to sell their mansion- that would be a funny show- watching kate have to move out of her dream house....I would defintely watch that one...

uberaeryn said...

I've been reading for a long time but this is my first time commenting. And I'm compelled due to utter shock. I mean, at first I found it perfectly believable that Jon might have strayed, but the idea that he had contractual permission and that Kate spent her nights with Mr. Gray has left me flabbergasted. When it first seemed Jon had strayed, I thought "Well, they're only human." But now, in light of all this?

I have no idea what to say!

Is there any chance someone can get a transcript of the Star article?

AnotherLisa said...

Can you imagine a 10-year old Mady googling the Gosselin name because some kid in her private school teased her about her parents?

What trauma it might be for her to finally see why Kevin and Jodi so abruptly left.

The psychological damage of seeing her parents' indescretions would be enormous.

Although I think she is difficult/demanding, she is very intelligent and she would be able to comprehend it all.

Of course, Kate has not ever considered this.

Kate is Dumb said...

What I want to know is how Kate Illusion sleeps at night. Seriously! With her children under the care of Nannies and her husband playing around, how the heck does she get any sleep. And why in the world would you want someone to think of you the way most of America is feeling for you right now.

They think Kate is scum. Not quite the image she was looking for but HEY if her mug is on People who cares right?

SavetheSheeples said...

"The Sheeple all have their panties in a twist about how Jon hurt Kate and laughing about how much child support he will have to pay. I just don't understand that."

I don't believe for a second that Kate did not know about Jon's affair. No way. If Kate is hurt right now, it's because she now has a TON of damage control to do for the public.

Their body language during the couch interviews has changed drastically on season 4. The tension between them was so obvious.

I wouldn't be surprised if they indeed had a "contract" that allowed them to date other people while married.

ThisMadeMyStomachTurn said...

Sorry, but Star Magazine will never be a classy way to tell, er... sell your story.

Theresa, Jon also ssid in that Utah interview that he "wasn't driving around in a sports car or anything; that everything they do is for the kids"

It isn't the media that is an unreliable source; it is Kon.

The Truth Will Set You Free said...
I really wish everyone would just be patient and stop criticizing the avenue that Kevin and Jodi took to begin what they need to do to save the children from this terrible situation. This is just the beginning

Thank-you! I am SURE they'll do what's best for the children. Good luck to them. It's the kids' that need to be thought of. I admire Jodi and Kevin for their strength.

lindahoyt said...

Yeah, get on Jodi and Kevin for telling the truth.

How can you critisise, when Kate is on the cover of People, saying "WE MAY SPLIT"...now, how does that help the children?

lilmamaD said...

ok, i'm a slow reader and back-tracking through previous posts. But I couldn't go without saying this. Some were saying that they wish Uncle Kevin & Aunt Jodi would've went with the truth to a more "reputable" media source such as Larry King, Ophrah, etc. I'm sorry, but after last week's Larry King show with Kate, where he actually called her "noble", I DO NOT view him as a reputable media source. I submitted comments to him, via his viewer's blog, and he did not pose one truly tough question to Kate during that interview, and there were alot of them that he could have. At least some mags are now presenting the other side of the story and digging deeper than just allowing a false appearance of KON to continue.
Jodi and Kevin, God Bless You and your family. I can't even imagine how you must feel or have felt for sometime over this mess and how your hearts have ached to be near and part of the children's lives. I have only one niece, another little ray of sunshine in my life, and I don't get to see her as much as I'd like due to geographical circumstances and it is so difficult to miss out on big events with her. So, I just want to say that I commend you both and I will continue to keep you both in my prayers.

Did The Star pay Kevin and Jodi?

Is taking money to tell this sordid story exploiting the family and the children?

Did Julie repost the part about Kevin asking Kate whether she interfered with Jodi being paid?

Does anybody know the truth about this?

Jon and Kate had an agreement that he could ding around and when it went bad and he got caught she threw him under the bus. They're both horrible people, but I think Kate's m.o. has always been to use people up and throw them away.
***********************************
ITA, I also wonder if her offer or supposed contract with him (to allow him to fool around) was part of a bigger plan, that once she gave him the green light to fool around, she KNEW he would get caught, therefore he would look bad, and she would look like the martyr that she thinks she is....

Ice Angel:

Protest the show for exploiting the children as much as you want, but while you are at it, you better just never watch any television show, commercial, reality show or listen to any music using child artists or personalities. Also, while at it, put down the parenting magazines that tell heartwarming stories of people's children along with beautiful pictures of beautiful children. (They might get into the hands of predators.)

======================

BIG difference here Ice. Children in television shows and commercials are ACTORS, portraying another person on television, most likely of their own free will. The Gosselin children have been filmed since before they were old enough to comprehend and speak for themselves, and filmed as THEMSELVES -- the good, the bad and the ugly, as Kate would say. Miles of difference between a child actor and a child who's most private moments are shown on television.

Here is a thought: If Kate set up this whole "contract" so that Jon would stay on the show, maybe she enouraged him to see other women. Maybe she encouraged this so that he would be exposed and she would look good and get custody of the children.

Maybe Deanna's brother ISN'T the one to expose their relationship. Maybe it was Kate. The brother just may be the one who spoke publicly.

Maybe people are speaking up now to expose Kate, so that her little scheme doesn't work.

It will be a miracle if they don't divorce, and there will have to be some custody order.

I wonder if the old friends and family would rather see the children with Jon?

I think Kevin and Jodi did this article because Kate was coming out with the cover of People. IMO Kevin and Jon are still in contact w/each other and if their side of the story comes out it will counteract what Kate is saying. I usually don't buy magazines but I will be buying Star and US Weekly and definitely not People.

It won't happen because the woman is talentless. She cashed in on her uterine lottery...and now it's over.

LOL, so funny and true! She really has nothing to bring to the table.

Oh, to be a fly on the wall at the TLC offices...
