Kate Gosselin’s family boycotts her show

May 26th, 2009 // 77 Comments

The season premiere of Jon and Kate Plus 8 aired last night, but Kate Gosselin’s own brother Kevin Kreider refused to watch and openly criticized her to Radar Online for exploiting the children:

“We are not going to watch the show,” Kevin told RadarOnline.com on Monday.
Kevin says his main concern is the children. He told RadarOnline.com: “We know what’s going on. And we are not interested in furthering this charade at the children’s expense. Our only concern is the kids.”
He said he and Jodi believe the marriage is over and Jon and Kate are staying together only to continue the TV show.
When asked what their biggest fear is about this situation, Kevin, speaking for himself and wife Jodi, told RadarOnline.com: “Our biggest fear is that they will continue this charade at the expense of the children.”

Meanwhile, Kate’s sister-in-law Jodie encouraged fans to boycott the show and blogged about it being completely scripted and not an accurate portrayal of the Gosselin’s real life, according to Us Magazine:

“Don’t believe everything you see. The children are also being prompted to say or do certain things. They signed their lives away to TLC and they will continue to spin the show to keep the viewer’s interest. I don’t believe this show will go away until the viewers decide that they don’t want to be played anymore.
“Please don’t watch on Monday. You’re not going to learn anything new by watching. They will only show what they think people want to see and it isn’t real anyway. They will probably drag this out (J&K’s ‘relationship’) for the entire season. They just string the viewers along hoping that they will come back for more.”

I completely blame The Hills for this whole debacle. It let other reality shows know you can just make shit up and people will watch. Honestly, I don’t even believe Jon and Kate have eight children. I watched the season premiere, and I guarantee they just kept switching outfits on the same kid so you’d think there’s three of him. Also, he was played by Brody Jenner which I thought was odd.

  1. I feel defeated and like I wanna fuck the first thing that shows me some kindness just looking at her…. she should leave Jon and move in with Octo-mom, they are both horrible people…….

  2. Juice

    Agreed…can’t see how the kids are exploited…college fees paid, free cars and a luxury lifestyle thanks to the cash made from the show.

  3. Lyric

    Jon found a new mate, he’s coming home late, his wife he does hate, what will be his fate, and how will their show rate?

  4. ugly woman…I came across an online community for individual seeking interracial love, blackwhitemeet.com. All singles there are seeking interracial relationships. Interracial is not a problem there, but a great merit to cherish!

    Her hairdoo is still pissing me off. Please make it go away, the baby Jesus is crying.

  6. Kelsey

    Cankle tattoos, how fun.

    What a trouble for a young family! When you’re playing games,big business is big trouble.

  8. Gando

    If the chemicals are gone then,if i was,her i would look for another partner.People aren’t that stupid and foolish anymore like for example 15 years ago.

  9. Nero

    Great chemicals is a great show!

    Maybe it’s because I’ve never seen the show, and I know I’m gonna get heat for this, but on a completely abstract MILFy level, no names asked, I’d hit it like there’s no tomorrow.

    I have thought this show interesting since it started. I am by no means obsessed with watching it. I catch it when I catch it, type of thing. But I have seen enough to make a statement.I really do believe that this whole “show” spiraled out of control before they even realized it was happening. Married couples go through this every day, whether or not they have 8 kids or none. The problem is Jon & Kate. The fact that they have children, of course compiles the complications. Kate seems to be quite the controller and Jon is a very passiv,.he feels broken. What man wouldn’t after giving up his career. This scenario plays out every day in peoples lives. I really do hope the best for them. They really need to spend time toghether, go to counselling, work on their relationship. I wish them well.
    On a sidenote…#45, you should be ashamed of yourself for adding a “lol” to, and I quote “I thought the little ones were all special needs children because they have that downs syndrome look about them dont they? lol.” Deplorable remark!!

    “ugly. american. whore.”

    In reply to number 9,

    Eh, yes, American is certainly better than what you’ve got. You pathetic Loser.

    Kevin and Jodi are HYPOCRITES. They are getting PAID to speak to the tabloids and various other media outlets, as well as trying to sell their side of the story for $30,000. Yep, $30,000… They are willing to sell out their own family and exploit the situation for cash. They couldn’t care less about the Gosselin children. And apparently, they didn’t mind the show when THEY were on it. Back then, they never mentioned “exploitation”. Funny how they’ve changed their minds so quickly now that they’re no longer on the show. It’s all a money scam and hopefully people can see through their act. They should be ashamed of themselves.

    Some people have no lifes. If you are actually going to sit here and say Kate is a bad mom you have something wrong with you. You try having 8 kids! You don’t even know what is actually going on. You only see whats going on through the media and stupid magazines. I bet there are things that we have no idea is going on and for Kevin and Jodi like Susan said HYPOCRITES! I don’t understand why someone would speak against their own sister. If you really loved her you would be supporting her. and # 45 that is rude to say. dont ever sit there and say that. (I thought the little ones were all special needs children because they have that downs syndrome look about them dont they? lol. But its not their fault their parents were selfish and are using them for their own financial gain.) what if someone said that about your kids if you have any and they did not have down syndrome. ITS FUCKING RUDE!!!!!!
    I wish Kate and Jon all the best!!!!

    I don’t understand why they would sign a contract like this with TLC in the first place knowing their lives would be invaded every moment of every day, what seems like the rest of their lives. They have no privacy, no peace. Who in their right minds would allow someone to film and air nationally their children being bathed, potty trained or even personal issues that come between a parent and their child on a day to day basis. What about that “becoming of age” conversation between the oldest girls and Kate, which should be private because sometimes little girl can find it embarrassing and confusing. What happens when the older children come of age and she becomes a “young lady” for the first time and can be nervous, although they ave been prepared? Do they plan on letting them film that? I for one as a mother and grandmother would be irate! The children have no privacy, they seem to be pushed to anger the hand full of times I’ve watched the show. I would never speak to my husband in public, or otherwize the way Kate speaks to Jon. Shame on her.
    She is causing shame on her whole family, especially her children. Wake up woman. No amount of money is worth this loss of respect, the wholeness of your family and your children well being. Money doesn’t make a family…love does!!!!! Seems you need a little more or one and less of the other.

    I think that all of you need to leave my sister kate alone and all of fyou get a life.

    I think Kevin & Jodie should just butt out…its none of their business, after all they were on the show and they wanted $$$$$ and they didn’t get it so now
    they are just doing a smear campaign and my feelings about the show just don’t matter and neither does theirs!!…Go find some other cause like domestic abuse, animal abuse, out troops overseas, etc…you can find something else Kevin & Jodie–just look around you, I’m sure there is plenty of crap you can get yourself into…..bye

    I can’t boycott it.

    You can’t boycott something you were never STUPID enough to watch!

    You are limiting your sons, teaching them to be biased and close-minded, as well as possibly cheating them out of fulfilling relationships by teaching them such nonsense. It’s not a very “classy” thing to do, and it certainly is ignorant of you.

    That said: Kate and Jon both act low class a lot of the time that I’ve seen, but it has everything to do with who they are and, perhaps, greed, and nothing to do with what careers their parents hold. BTW, Kate’s father is a minister: hardly what most people would consider “trailer trash” even if it’s not a high-paying career. Most ministers are well-educated people who are respected in their communities. They have chosen to enter into low paying professions due to their faith and their selfless desire to help others.

  23. Sam

    Let’s face the facts here. Kate could be a bitch, yes, but let’s ask ourselves what the hell did Jon EVER do as far as stepping up and acting like a man?? EVERY project he did he either did with Kevin, and I say” with ” loosely since Kevin did ALL the work or Kate had to act like a colossal psycho for him to get something done. Jon always has acted as if being a husband and father is a chore, not a gift. one cannot wait til she starts dating and gets remarried. Hopefully she finds happiness because the only thing Jon is going to find with his groupie whores is an STD.

  24. Caresse

    That woman has a control problem. She likes to be the celebrity, cause it makes big bucks to her. Jon is right leaving that woman, but they both harm the kids.
