As their parents continue to make celebrity gossip headlines, the eight children of Jon and Kate Gosselin are starting to feel the effects of all the stress.
Wow, there's a shocker. Thank goodness Jon had that epiphany and decided he would pull the plug on their reality show (completely selflessly, of course).
In a new article in Vanity Fair, Kate says the kids are "acting out" lately – but she is hopeful it's a phase that will pass as the kids adjust to the divorce.
"I'm trying to give them the grace to see, if they’re acting out of line, I'm trying to look deeper into why that is," the mulleted one tells the magazine.
"I am so emotionally spent. Why are the kids acting out? 'Cause it’s all inter-related. I mean, they don’t see it that way, but it’s all interconnected."
All this? Making eight small children upset? You're joking.
Referring to her estranged, douchebag ex, destitute Kate says, "They miss him. They say they miss him. I imagine they say the same thing when I'm away."
Not only are the kids hurting without their parents together, Kate said that the demise of their hit show Jon & Kate Plus 8 has caused nothing but heartache.
Jon objected to his kids being filmed ... conveniently after TLC announced plans to relaunch the show as simply Kate Plus 8, with little or no Jon featured.
TLC has turned around and sued Jon for breach of contract.
Kate's summation of the children's reaction to Jon's move:
"Over the weekend I told [the kids] that we're not filming. And actually, times eight, there was wailing and sobbing. They love our crew, they love the interaction."
"There is nothing harmful about it. They are angry."
Whose side are you on?
