It's not enough to help us take Kate Gosselin's side in her messy marriage to husband Jon, but it's one thing to have random TV critics and celebrity gossip readers question your motives as a mother.
It's another thing to be sold out by your own family.
Earlier this week, Kate's brother Kevin Kreider and his wife Jodi laid into their relative on CBS' The Early Show. They said that Kate and Jon were exploiting their children and exposing them to an unhealthy environment.
While Kevin told the morning show "we're speaking out now because we want to be the voice of our nieces and nephews," and insisted that there was "no payment at all" exchanged for the interview, there still appears to be plans for him to profit off all this ugliness
According to E! News, Kate's sibling has been shopping his revealing take on the situation to media outlets for $30,000.
This development isnt likely to help Kevin and Jodi in their relationship with TLC's most famous couple, which Kevin admits is "definitely been strained now." He added:
"We haven't seen the kids in a while, which is hard... What we hope is that they will kind of come around, see the effects, see what's most important."
