There's a real life family feud brewing. But this one isn't over cash and prizes; it's over the mental health of eight innocent children.

On this morning's CBS Early Show, the brother and sister-in-law of Kate Gosselin said Jon & Kate Plus 8 has devolved from its original intent of simply documenting the kids' lives.

"We thought it was very innocent at the time," said Kate's sister-in-law, Jodi. "It quickly turned into more and more demands from Jon and Kate from the network. It turned into 40 episodes in a six-month span."

Jon, Kate, their kids and their extended family of cameramen celebrated the sextuplets' fifth birthday as one, giant, awkward group on this week's season premiere.

Moreover, Jodi and her husband Kevin say there are sometimes cameras in the children's bedrooms and the tykes are "being exploited... it's time for America to see the situation for what it really is."

Based on the ridiculous ratings for Monday night's season premiere, America is definitely tuning in at least.

"Unfortunately, there are no laws protecting children in reality TV shows," Jodi said. "These children are very aware of the cameras in their homes. The home is their workplace. This is not a healthy environment for kids to be raised in."

This is all your fault, people.

We really don't wanna keep writing about Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin, as these below-average parents seem more interested in attention than their children these days.

But there's clearly interest in this couple, as 9.8 million people tuned in for Monday night's fifth season premiere; that's twice as many viewers as the show's previous high, and more than the number that watched this year's Lost finale. Sheesh!

So, what's the latest on Kate, who complained on the episode that her life was "just so hard," due to the media and pressure on her marriage.

(To which The Baltimore Sun's David Zurawik aptly replied: "Is it really, Kate? Tell that to a family in which the breadwinner has just lost her or his job, you silly, self-absorbed fool.")

According to David Rothermel, Jon's former employer at Style Craft Corp, his wife had him on an allowance; a miniscule one, at that.

"She used to give him only $5 to spend, and if he was out and needed more money, she would give him hell," Rothermel told Us Weekly.

Rothermel - the latest in a long line of friends and relatives to either sell out the Gosselins or go along with their publicity-seeking strategy - also recounted a story in which Kate stormed into the office because Jon's father failed to bring her lunch; while also detailing Kate's lack of gratitude over the donation of a van for the family.

Isn't this fascinating stuff?!?

We beseech you, readers: stop watching this show. For the sake of Jon and Kate's children - as well as our sanity - it's best if this family is kept off TV for awhile.

Did you watch the fifth season premiere of Jon & Kate Plus a Few Possibly-Contrived-Infidelity-Rumors-Meant-to-Boost-Ratings 8 last night?

Those that did noticed that Jon and Kate Gosselin didn't appear on camera at the same time until 45 minutes into the episode.

Kate Gosselin's Hair

Once they finally shared a screen together, the pair pretty much laid into each other.

"Slowly, I've seen him almost resent the duties [of being a parent]," Kate said to viewers. "I know it's a lot to take care of eight kids. I'm traveling a lot, he's frustrated a lot. I think he's angry at me. He doesn't really feel great about me.

"Have I been hard on him for almost the last 10 years that we've been married? I would never deny that. I've always regretted it. Have I pushed him to this? I don't feel like I have. I feel like everyone is responsible for their own actions."

Note to couples: when a television crew captures your renewed wedding vows on camera, this is not the sign of a healthy marriage.

Meanwhile, Jon lamented that the series has "become a business" (which paid for their house and almost everything in it, he conveniently forgot to add), while giving his wife a guilt trip for always going on book tours.

In response to the episode, New Jersey's Star Ledger rightfully called out Kate for her hypocrisy over the paparazzi.

During a voiceover, the diluted, self-absorbed mother mother said she tells her kids to call the paparazzi "the P-people" because "I don't want them going to school being like, 'Well, the paparazzi is following us, like, that's so creepy.'"

Replied the Star Ledger: "What's creepy is having your children followed around by a camera crew. Any camera crew. Period. It's exploitation, whatever cutesy name you want to give it."

Do you think Jon and Kate will get divorced?

"I will not give up. I will not lay down and die."
- Kate Gosselin, reacting to rumors of her and her husband's infidelity, on tonight's season premiere of Jon & Kate Plus 8.

While reality TV's most annoying wife won't off herself in response to a series of rumors surrounding her marriage, she'll gladly risk her life on a motorcycle. In front of her children, no less!

During the taping for an upcoming episode, Kate and Jon met up with American Chopper host Paul Teutul Sr. The reasons why are unclear, though we'd imagine it has something to do with the fact that neither half of this couple has ridden the other in a long time.

They need to feel something between their legs, and the paparazzi barrage make it impossible for either to run off and get with their respective mister and mistresses. We almost feel bad for Jon and Kate. Except we don't. At all.

In the least surprising piece of entertainment news this month, Jon and Kate Gosselin have started seeing a marriage counselor.

As cheating rumors - and sex tape rumors and infidelity contract rumors - swirled around the couple, Kate initially refused to seek counseling.

Peace Out Kate

However, with the future of her TLC show (and related fame) on the line, she's changed her mind.

"It's make-or-break time for Jon and Kate, and counseling may be the only hope they have to repair their shattered marriage," a source told The National Enquirer. "The big question is whether they'll allow cameras into their therapy sessions. TLC would want to film at least portions of the sessions, but obviously Jon and Kate would have to agree."

Jon and Kate Gosselin almost seem like normal, loving parents in this photo.

Meanwhile, the attention-loving monster wants to wring two more seasons out of Jon & Kate Plus 8, others say.

"Kate wants a future in showbiz, and airing their counseling sessions will shoot the show's ratings through the roof," said an insider.

Forget Jon & Kate Plus 8.

The story of Jon & Kate Plus 8, in Addition to One Lover and Two Disloyal Brothers is far more interesting.

A couple weeks after he accused sister Deanna Hummel of nailing reality TV star Jon Gosselin, Jason Hummel certainly isn't backing off his story. In fact, he's reveling in it.

"I am not a liar," he told E! News earlier today. "The rumors are true. It feels good to let people know that I am not the liar."

It must. Clearing up one's public perception - which never would have existed in the first place if Jason hadn't gone on record about the affair - is far more pressing than remaining loyal to one's sister.

In the video below, Jason adds that he thinks Jon and Deanna will continue to see one another; Jon may have tried to bribe him with Philles tickets; and the couple would defy Bristol Palin's anti-sex advice "at least three times per week."

Meanwhile, Deanna's OTHER brother, John, is also confirming his sister's affair.

We were wrong. The Jon and Kate Gosselin cheating scandal can get even stranger.

At first, it seemed like rumors of a Deanna Hummel sex tape would be the pinnacle of this story; but then Kate was accused of starting the infidelity merry-go-round by having an affair with bodyguard Steve Neild.

Kate Book Signing

Now, Kevin and Jodi Kreider - Kate ’s brother and sister-in-law - are milking their share of this cash cow coming forward about details of an alleged marriage contract that allows Jon Gosselin to date other women while filming the couple's TLC series Jon & Kate Plus 8.

Yes, a marriage contract.

“All we know is what Jon told us, that Kate came to him with a contract saying he could have girlfriends and that he can do his own thing,” the Kreiders said to Radar. “In exchange, Jon needs to show up for filming. But otherwise he has the freedom, certain days, to do whatever he wants."

The couple then spoke for everyone that follows this relationsip, stating: "This is a train wreck for all to see.”

This photo becomes far less adorable when you consider the possibility that Jon Gosselin has permission to cheat on his wife.

Celebrity gossip tabloids around the nation didn't need Emeril Lagasse to cook them up a perfect meal this week.

Various publications took one part reality TV couple, mixed it with multiple rumors of an affair by both sides, added a sprinkle of a sex tape and came up with fodder for days on end.

Indeed, one of the most buzzed-about stories in Hollywood these days centers around Jon and Kate Gosselin, heretofore innocent, admired, seemingly innocuous parents of eight adorable children.

But in the latest issue of People, Kate comes clean about the new light in which she sees her husband.

"I don't know that we're in the same place anymore, that we want the same thing," she said. "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." 

Wow. Harsh words, ones probably not best to share with a national magazine if you're actually concerned about your marriage.

An Affair, Covered

Coming soon: Jon & Kate Plus One Divorce?

Meanwhile, Us Weekly is turning the marital tables on Kate. Its latest edition highlights her rumored affair with bodyguard Steve Neild.

Neild - who once worked for Bill Clinton, so knows something about infidelity! - and Gosseln are "very physical, often touching each other," said an employee at a recent promotional appearance for Jon & Kate Plus 8, adding:

"She was gently poking him, giving him little love pats, totally unlike the slapping she does with Jon. She and Steve were joking around so much, I actually wondered if they were having an affair. There's a lot of open affection between them."

Seriously, who would have guessed that the most sordid, convoluted story about adultery these days would be swirling around the parents of eight children?

Following a week that spotlighted Jon Gosselin's alleged cheating ways, Star Magazine says it's discovered the reason why one half of the couple in the title for Jon & Kate Plus 8 had an affair with Deanna Hummel:

Because his wife cheated on him first!

"I heard Kate was getting way too close with her personal trainer, so Jon started cheating," Trisha Berlin, a fellow Pennsylvania resident, told Star, adding that Kate has also being linked to her hunky bodyguard, known as "Mr. Gray" to bloggers and pictured here.

Another source told the tabloid that "Jon goes out to meet other women because Kate has given him the cold shoulder," which is evident to anyone that watches their reality show.

Last week, Kate addressed the scandal during an interview on the Today show, stating: "We just need to weather this storm, just like all the other storms that we've been through."

Hmm... might she have been referring to her own disloyal ways? Discuss!

Kate Gosselin says she's not a celebrity and she's handling rumors of her husband's infidelity in private.

So, naturally, the mother of eight is appearing on every talk show she can!

Following a week where the rumor patrol was out in full force - reporting on an affair between Jon Gosselin and Deanna Hummel, running accusations about Deanna from her brother and even leaking news about a supposed sex tape of Jon's mistress - Kate appeared on Larry King Live last night.

She addressed a number of topics:

On a lack of privacy: "Everyone wants to know everything about us. And I feel like this is a situation where, you know, you can't believe everything that you read. You know that. I know that."

On her kids being exposed to the rumors: "They attend a very quiet, private school where, you know, people aren't paying attention to that. They're investing their time in their kids' education and activities. And, no, they are, at this point unaware. But they are very aware that we love them very much."

Kate Gosselin and Jon Gosselln, seen here with their brood of children, are the latest couple to see their relationship tested by a reality TV show.

On Jon's poor judgment: "I am not a celebrity... I am a mom and a wife. And I feel that Jon is having difficult times realizing that, you know, you can't go to the grocery store without people whipping out their cell phones, calling everyone they know and taking pictures of you. He is dealing very poorly with it."

Kate then read the following statement from her husband on-air:
"These allegations are false and just plain hurtful," read the statement. "As I adjust to the attention that comes from being in the public eye, I need to be more careful and aware of who I'm associating with and where I'm spending my time. The bottom line is I did not cheat on Kate.

I'm sorry for putting my family in this awkward position, given some poor decisions and bad judgments I've made recently. I'm working through this difficult time with my family and my family is my top priority."
