Since Jon’s decided to detonate their child-powered gravy train, Kate Gosselin has fired off a statement to People regarding her ex-husband’s actions:
“I’m saddened and confused by Jon’s public media statements. Jon has never expressed any concerns to me about our children being involved in the show and, in fact, is on the record as saying he believes the show benefits our children and was taping on Friday with the kids.
“I check in regularly with each of the kids to be sure they want to participate in and continue with the show and will continue to do so. I do the show for my family because I believe it provides us opportunities we wouldn’t otherwise have. Jon used to share that belief until as recently as the day the network announced the name change of the show and indicated that Jon would have a lesser role in the show. It appears that Jon’s priority is Jon and his interests. My priority remains our children and their well-being.”
She constantly checks to see if the kids enjoy filming the show, huh? Why do I get the feeling this is the more likely scenario?
JOEL: Mommy, the cameras make me sad on the inside.
KATE: Aww, I’m sorry, honey. Tell you what, let’s do something fun. It’s called “Hide in the old refrigerator out back because mommy just signed a lease on a Lexus.”
