Cara, Mady, Hannah, Leah, Alexis, Joel, Aaden and Collin have had it.
Just as the Gosselin children were beginning to cope with the public demise of their parents’ marriage, the are forced with yet another heartbreaking loss:
A forced hiatus from their TLC show brought about by father Jon.
“They were wailing and sobbing; they are angry,” Kate said on the Today Show on October 5, arguing that the show must go on as she and the kids wish.
Jon pulled the plug on production last week, ostensibly because he cares about the best interests of the children. But as Nancy Grace called him out for yesterday, their kids' welfare was never an issue until the show was renamed just Kate Plus 8.
Despite saying he wants to keep his kids out of the spotlight, Jon seems to be seeking attention, partying and basking in the glow of his minor celebrity.
Even their eight kids are starting to think Jon and Kate Gosselin suck.
“It was time to go, but our group started talking about an after party,” a member of his crew said of his recent night out in L.A. “Jon said, ‘I want to go to the party.’"
"By the time we got there, the party was breaking up, but he stayed.”
Also this week, the estranged couple have been arguing over the $200,000+ Jon reportedly took from their joint bank account, leaving Kate with a grand.
“I have a stack of bills,” Kate said, crying that she can't pay them.
While Jon calls Kate’s story a “complete fabrication,” the dude has been on a spending spree, jet setting around and hemorrhaging cash like a madman.
He’s not the only one, though. Kate is also guilty of airing dirty laundry, despite promises to keep things civil. All of which hurts her precious kids too.
“It’s hypocritical to say that ‘We have the children’s best interests at heart,’ then speak poorly about each other in the media,” a source says. “The children have a record of all this, and when they’re old enough, they’re going to see it.”
All we have to say: Free the Gosselin 8!
